Return from the Bay of Fundy, Venus, Jupiter, the Moon & the Sun, and Why the Megyn v. Trump Discussion Matters

Posted by Eric Francis

In tonight’s edition, I look at Jupiter ingressing Virgo, the Leo New Moon and the Venus-Sun conjunction, all happening at about the same time. I also report in from my recent journey to the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia, and comment on the battle of ideologies between Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump. My musical selections are traditional songs of the Acadian people, the original French Catholic settlers of Nova Scotia and the Atlantic provinces.

    Thank you, Eric. So good to have you back. Thank you for bringing the music, photos and insights of your vacation home to share with us. Most of all, thank you for the profoundly insightful synasty of Donald Trump’s troubling nativity, along with that of the esteemed Ms. Kelly and the event chart of the debate itself all coming together to mesh with the astrology leading up to and including the New Moon. We missed you. We are grateful you are back with this great show.

    As 50% French Canadian, I appreciate this post and the music. The story of French Canadians who emigrated to America, most without papers, most working in factories and textile mills and looked down on by some other ethnic populations, is an interesting one. There was an interesting opinion piece in the Times, late last year I think, about how French Canadians were an undocumented immigrant population that’s assimilated and contributed a lot.

    i think I just heard you mention visiting Quebec City. I definitely recommend it! It really does feel like visiting Europe, minus the jet lag. :)

    Love the music! I have danced to all these tunes, as Maine Contradance and Folk scene is pollinated by Acadian music. A happy interlude, because part three of your broadcast was so disturbing.

    Thank you for spotlighting the Kelly/Trump interaction. I got chills of the scary kind hearing the applause. Rosie O’Donnell may be taking the fall, but it has never been about her. This is a dangerous climate. Trump’s treatment of Megyn Kelly: interrupting, condescending, dismissing, belittling, insulting, threatening, and demanding an apology… Did he interrupt any male questioners? Would he interrupt Hillary Clinton if they were to face off in a race? My blood is boiling. Keep this front and center. Reasonable people need to get mad about this and pull the rug out from under Trump.
