the congressional campaigns of Keesha Rogers, Rachel Brown, and Summer Shields: Let’s Impeach the President for ending a Space mission the public is not paying attention toward.
Every large-scale movement has disparate forces and peripheral players that are not central to the causes and concerns of most activists. While they deserve some mention, journalists should also maintain a sense of perspective so that readers are properly informed about overall tone and direction of the political forces at work. [...] Tea Party Activists Interlinked with Aryan Nation, John Birchers, Lyndon LaRouche.
Lately people have been appearing at meetings with posters of Obama as Hitler. Some of these posters came from the followers of Lyndon LaRouche. One can only wonder who gave the cash-strapped LaRouche movement money for the vile signs. The inclusion of the LaRouchists in the rightist anti-Obama coalition underscores a decision to draw more upon the growing far-right fringe groups.
Not really a decision on their part. The Larouchists I mean. To dispute, and arguably the thrust is about the same but with a different political viewpoint.
The left has a political interest in defining the broad backlash against expanded government as identical to the worst elements of the Tea Party movement — birthers and Birchers, militias and nativists, racists and conspiracy theorists, acolytes of Ron Paul, Tom Tancredo and Lyndon LaRouche.
You know, Ron Paul did just win the CPAC presidential straw poll. Also, I can’t categorize “Ron Paul” as wholly negative an element. Tom Tancredo addressed the Tea Party convention. What do you want from me? I guess the only real demand on me is to differentiate a cult from a, quote-in-quote “cult”. See Bill Maher, look the video up for this transcript — key reference in script:

LaRoucheisright Says: February 24th, 2010 at 8:32 pm Lyndon Larouche is the only one who knows what to do now. Check the vids on my channel, or go straigt to the LaRouche youth movement news page larouchepacdotcom and read the breaking developements, or listen to one of the webcasts.
All right. Activitate. Taking on the Haiti tragedy:
During the question and answer period, LaRouche PAC representative Shannon Chew, intervened into what had otherwise been an attempt by the relevant panelist, Rev. Thomas Streit, to cover over the immense biological disaster befalling disaster stricken Haiti, now. Chew forcefully introduced the reasons why Lyndon LaRouche’s Army Corps of Engineers-style relocation and evacuation of lower-elevation city denizens, is absolutely necessary to avert a potential biological holocaust. This met with initial speechlessness and shock from the crowd, and the panelists, too, who decided to take it as a statement for the record.
They sat there, speechless. Shocked and stunned. FANTASTIC!
Mostly they just have some things to write out on the placard dropping from their card-tables to confuse stray passerbyers that this might be a Haiti Aid project, incurring stray donations. They resemble nothing so much as the Scientologists in exploiting these tragedies, and internalizing stories about action.
As Lyndon LaRouche emphasized on Wednesday, there is currently a concatenation of events which must merge to force the impeachment or resignation under threat of impeachment of President Barack Obama within a matter of the next two or three weeks if civilization is to have any chance of surviving. LaRouche’s own call for Obama’s impeachment is the crucial initiative necessary to bring the growing revolt against Obama’s policies to the necessary deliberate conclusion in time.
As LaRouche has said, we need a great U-turn. As long as Obama is still President, nothing will be capable of being done to save this country or civilization.
Yesterday’s so-called Health Summit was a case in point. A new CNN poll shows that at most 25 percent of the US population supports the Obama Senate bill. And yet Obama remains completely committed to ramming this fascist bill through using the so-called reconciliation process in the Senate, despite the fact that to do so violates the fundamental Constitutional principle of the mass strike underway in the U.S. today—the principle that all legislation is only legitimate if it receives the consent of the governed.
Suppose it’s true. Suppose the president passes through the Congress a policy that is the most hated and reviled policy in the history of Human Civilization, against a backdrop of protests that represent the fervant desires of 80 percent of the public. Unpopularity and Unpopular Policies is not grounds for Impeachment, lest we end up jettisoning every single president in American history. It is a stringing attachment to a fringe and incoherent political position.
Suppose, also, that we follow through with Impeachment for the following reason.
Rep. Pete Olson (R-TX) vowed earlier this week to fight for Constellation in Congress as the FY11 budget works its way through the House. “Congress is going to challenge this plan,” the Houston Chronicle quotes Olson as saying at a meeting Wednesday. However, that’s mild compared to what one potential Democratic challenger says should be done. “If you want to save NASA, call for the impeachment of Obama,” said Kesha Rogers, a candidate in the Democratic primary in the 22nd district, which Olson now represents. Rogers is linked to Lyndon LaRouche, who made a similar call for the president’s impeachment because of his NASA policy earlier this month.
Suppose the Republicans in Congress decide that they will now, at this date, make their focal electoral and political strategy the Impeachment of President Barack Obama based on Obama’s short-changing the NASA budget and cutting a mission…
… as the principle item of Impeachment — Cutting the NASA budget…
Do you have any idea what would happen? Mitch McConnell goes on the Sunday talk shows and hammers home the NASA related Impeachment plans. Every Republican Congressional candidates puts this at the very top of their proposal lists. Do you know what the result would be?
Basically, the Democrats — right now poised to lose a boatful of seats in the November mid-term election, would win. Every seat, basically. And I mean that.
The situation is on a very short political fuse. Many will get caught up in the predicates and balk at the necessary action. (Indeed.) Our job is to kick against the pricks of pragmatism and provide the necessary leadership. Impeach Obama now!
The question for this story.

Why even give serious journalistic coverage to these loons? Followers of Lyndon Larouche? Really?!?! These Hitler comparisons are so offensive I don’t even know where to start. What in anything Obama has ever done suggests he is going to gas millions of men, women, and children to create a master race? Before you sign a petition like that, do some research. Is anyone paying attention to facts anymore? Stop getting sound bites from entertainers pretending to be newscasters.
Which tends to dove-tail into this perenial commentary.
Heavens, for all these years I thought Lyndon LaRouche had become wormfood over two decades ago. He’s not endorsing candidates (Democrats no less?!) from beyond the grave now is he?
I keep hearing about all the outrage over shutting down of constellation and how this is President Obama’s waterloo but both the numbers of comments and the number of negative comments to me shows a general public not even in tune or aware of the controversy. Tiger Woods articles get more attention then a NASA “back to the moon” one.
The recent teaparty conventions and the republican one just held did not even show a NASA/shuttle/constellation poster at all that I saw. As far as everything i could find about them online.
Once again I am baffled by those posters here talking about the outrage over the death of constellation. The only “outrage” seems to be from representatives and senators of 4-6 states with vested interests in their state’s job picture and their articles in newspapers do not even get any comments.
But I expect that if this page and this article had a comments section, it would attract a call for Obama’s Impeachment and call for Larouche’s phony “4 Power Alliance”.
I doubt it, he has already been discredited because he was in the LaRouche Movement. LaRouche is a shady individual. He can speak the truth he can be screamed down by the mainstream and left-wing press. He is saying nothing new here, the military-industrial will run the entire world into the ground. Better to fight it than live on your knees waiting for the big Mushroom cloud this idiot network wants.
Webster Tarpley has entertained the idea, though, for I gather fun and profit. Interviewed Orly Taitz. Sheesh — for I know Orly Taitz has an Internet Broadcast and has interviewed him.
You know, now that I think about it… sparred from this comment:
On no Mr. T in DC, you’re wrong. They were out there trying to convince the public Pres. Obama is the one true descendant of Hitler. Notice the physical similarities? LOL!
… I’m tempted to ask how far that would get in a congressional campaign, but I guess that is the purpose and test of the congressional campaigns of Rachel Brown, Keesha Rogers, and Summer Shields. That and to give these people something to do or other. (NO! Here’s your “Summer Shields for Congress” Campaign staff at work!)
Or to get a sentence or two into stories like this, and compete against this:
Her website says she wants to impeach Obama for ending the NASA moon program?! That’s the meme?
Comment by David Stephenson
The meme is “dining room table.”
In any event, LaRouchies don’t really care about the noble adventure of space exploration. They just want the damned Helium-3 from the moon. They’re afraid the Chinese will get it first.
… Not true. They want a four party alliance to get the Helim-3.
