The idea of the six Larouchie campaigns for Congress adding up to a Presidential bid may be a nod to the 1832 Whig Party Presidential strategy, where the new “Anti-Jackson forces” forming into an opposition party ran several regional candidates for the purpose of keeping President Andrew Jackson from winning a majority of the electoral vote. This, I guess, is in keeping with the neo-Platonic Whig tradition of the Larouchies (seen right there in the first sentence of the Wiki article, thanks to the fine work of the Larouche Wikipedia team).
In 2008, the Larouchies released a historical docudrama, “1932″, which tied their Hillary Clinton campaigning in with the presidential campaign of Franklin Roosevelt. I can only hope that the Larouche film-makers are working on the “1832″ film, which will tie the current campaign with that historic Whig Party effort.
Speculators are speculating that the Commitee to Stop Kesha Rogers got to him. I guess I could just ask Mr. George. Last I checked the Doug Blatt website, he was raring to go, and making the clear line distinction between himself and Kesha Rogers.
Note here’s Rogers at the Alvin-Manvel Area Chamber of Commerce. I assume KP George came by at some point.
A New Jersey congressional hopeful, who describes the president in her campaign literature as deranged, failed to convince Warren County freeholders to support reinstatement of a 1930s federal banking act. [...]
The bottom line of the Larouche game: Chamberlain, a Republican, said he was in favor of “any Democrat that criticizes Obama.” Yeah, yeah.
Bergen County Democratic Chairman Lou Stellato said last week Sare had not registered to run in Bergen County, which is part of the 5th District.
Alexandra Phillips, Sare’s campaign manager, said she avoided registering for the Bergen County convention because of “stipulations.” Phillips said Thursday if Sare were not endorsed by the Bergen County Democrats, she would be asked to drop out of the race.
Stellato responded that Sare would not be asked to “drop out,” only that she would not be included on the party line if she did not get the endorsement. He said she could still participate in the primary.
I remember when I thought Sare had the best chance, though not a good chance, of winning the nomination of the six Larouche Democrats. This was kind of based around these parts.
That which Diane Sare has going for her:
A large swath of Teaneck was carved off from the former 9th Congressional District and moved into the Republican-leaning 5th, represented by conservative Republican Rep. Scott Garrett. Three Democrats —Teaneck Deputy Mayor Adam Gussen, Passaic County Freeholder Terry Duffy and Diane Sare — have all announced campaigns for the newly drawn district.
In light of further information, I no longer believe that to be true.
Some Diane Sare campaign events: March 24: American Legion Post 86; March 10 — Post Office Duty. Mark your calendar. None of it matters, though: She will be running no matter if she is on the ballot or not.
We’ll see if Diane Sare can make hay out of this element in the nature of New Jersey machine politics: This year, the New Jersey Democratic party isn’t backing even ONE woman challenger for any Congressional districts. There is one woman named Diane Sare who is running as a LaRouche Democrat, whatever the f^&* that is.
“Whatever the f^&* that is” indeed. Interesting to note two things: a Hillary Clinton supporter urging America Elect run pops up in the comments.

More than 69 million people voted for Barack Obama in 2008. So I’m going to answer your silly rhetorical questions with a resounding YES. As for the minions of Lyndon LaRouche; I lived in Illinois in 1986, when two LaRouche lackeys took advantage of complacency in the state Democratic Party and won nominations for Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of State. They were as crackpot then as Mr. Roberts and “Hector” are now; Illinois Democrats disowned them and weak Republican candidates swept to victory. We cannot let that happen in 2012 at any level.
Executive Intelligence Review blames the Mossad for Putin assassination attempt.
The Mossad is to blame for all the wars. And stuff.
LaRouche FTW. Americans are stupid not to recognise your only real leader.
This is scary that a person of that much influence and power would be quoting LaRouche.
As events play out in Washington, Moscow, Beijing, and London over the next 72 hours, and as our global mobilization against thermonuclear war intensifies, it is more vital than ever that there be a clear understanding of exactly why this planet is on the very brink of potential extinction.
It’s been 72 hours. We still have a globe. Larouchies take heed: your leader has been thoroughly discredited right there.
This is neat.
The bottom line, though:
Ron Paul could wake up tomorrow, appear on public radio and television, cite Lyndon Larouche and it will be game over! Ron Paul know this!
Hard to argue with that.
When we speak of two conspiracies, we do not mean that Satan and God exist as junior and senior partners who jointly run the world. The human race has survived up until now despite the failure of the humanist conspiracy to finally stamp out these enemies of the human race–but we do not have such latitude today.
My name is Gene Douglas and I represent the LaRouche Irish Brigade. We chose this title because we thought that these three words LaRouche/Irish/Brigade may generate some anxiety in certain circles of the British establishment!.
The British establishment has been warned!
These people remind me of the group I saw on the street today. There was a huge sign with a picture of Obama with a little Hitler-mus
“It’s all about the British financial institutions,” said the female Lyndon LaRouche supporter. She was talking with a woman in front of the Holden post
office. The male supporter was talking animatedly about the First Amendment to another
visitor. On the side of their table was the now-familiar poster of Barack Obama with a Hitler mustache. “It’s about my freedom of expression.” Every few minutes, a passing car would honk in apparent support. When the visitor speaking with the male supporter left, I stepped forward and introduced myself as a local blogger. I asked how business was going. Good, he said.
[...]He asked if I wanted to sign a petition. I said that I was here as a reporter, not as a supporter. He got quiet. I asked a few more questions, wondering if there’d been any repeat of the trouble that had occurred in other towns and of plans to go to other towns in the region.
The two men, who requested not to be identified, were on the street corner representing Lyndon Larouche’s Political Action Committee (LaRouche PAC). They offered reading material to Post Office customers about the LaRouche PAC’s federal slate of candidates for the upcoming election.
While none of the LaRouche candidates are running for a Milton office, the men in Milton referred all questions to Rachel Brown’s campaign.

At the City Council’s March 5 meeting, Councilman Herb Perez called the display an “embarrassment” that “bordered on hate speech” but acknowledged that it was allowed under free speech rights. He said he had received “a bunch of phone calls” about the incident.
Police also received calls that day, according to Foster City police Capt. Jon Froomin, the department’s public information officer.
“Our main thing is keeping the peace,” said Froomin.
When asked about the pictures of Obama with a Hitler mustache, Yule said, “the truth hurts.” He described LaRouche as an “FDR-Lincoln-Hamiltonian democrat.”
“We’re definitely thinking of coming back to Foster City at some point,” said Yule, who has volunteered for the Bay Area LPAC movement for about 10 years. “ A lot of people wanted us to come back.”
A fringe political group headed by a right wing activist who has openly supported accused Nazi war criminals, among others, held a signature gathering in support of impeaching President Obama in front of the Foster City Post Office earlier this week under a doctored poster of Obama wearing a Hitler mustache.
And despite his ties to extremist groups – Lyndon LaRouche has gone to bat for accused concentration camp guards and hired Klansmen as political consultants – a North American Water and Power Alliance (NAWAPA) official suggested that the controversial former presidential candidate’s group isn’t peddling the Hitler comparison in a good way.
“What we’re saying is that Obama is a tool of the British Empire and that he was put in by the British to carry out a genocidal policy, no different than Hitler,” NAWAPA spokeswoman Angela Vullo told Patch in a telephone interview on Tuesday. [...]
Vullo dismissed the notion that playing the Hitler card might offend Holocaust survivors or relatives of those who’d been killed in Nazi Germany.
“I’d say that they don’t understand history and they don’t understand the policy of Obama and the British Empire,” Vullo said.
State Police moved two protesters affiliated with nationally known political extremist Lyndon LaRouche, a Lynn public school graduate, from the Lynnway this morning after the local police received several complaints of the youths carrying posters of President Barack Obama with a Hitler mustache.
“They think this brand of sensationalism is productive, but it’s highly offensive,” City Councilor at Large Daniel Cahill said.
Cahill said he saw the protestors illegally affixing a sign to a city light pole and called the city. [...]
“We’ll give them my name, not you,” one replied when asked if he did not find it disingenuous to ask residents to sign their name to receive campaign information when they were not willing to identify themselves publicly with the materials they were distributing.
Angela Vullo, a LaRouche PAC spokesperson reached by phone in Leesburg, Va., said volunteers and were working on a campaign to impeach Obama. She said Obama was a puppet of powerful banks of the British Empire, taking orders from the Queen of England and trying to get a World War started with Russia.[...]
[Hey! A local connection!] LaRouche, an eight-time candidate for U.S. President — seven times vying for the Democratic Party’s nomination — graduated from Lynn English with the Class of 1940.
9 out of 10 experts agree: the LaRouche kvlt is one of the most entertainingly batshit political kvlts around. [...] But even if I did, I doubt anybody would pay attention. After all, their track record is — quite frankly — appalling, the CEC’s candidates coming last in almost every ballot they’ve ever contested. In fact, the contrast between the CEC’s electoral performance and its financial status is one of the more curious features of the micro-party’s history.
As for averting nuclear war, LaRouche’s followers have documented their efforts to do so on the streets of Melbourne last weekend. As if to confirm The Royal Family’s control of the world drug trade and plan for total annihilation the British consul refused to meet with the protesters and to explain why The Queen’s puppet O’Bama behaves as he does.

Mass extinctions happen roughly every 62 million years. Yet every ecosystem that emerges is qualitatively superior to the one which came before. What does this mean for the way we organize our economy, and choose our political leaders?
The first Occupy camp I went to was in Los Angeles at City Hall. On the corner there were communists standing next to Ron Paul supporters next to vegan activists next to those LaRouche people (who always seem to show up) — hanging out with some union guys all carrying signs saying they were the 99 percent. Yes, it sounds like the set-up to a political joke. I asked my guide, Cheryl Aichele (they had guided tours for the first couple of weeks at Occupy LA), to explain how this was possible. She said, “We’re not going to fight over what’s not the problem.”
STORY NUMBER FOUR: COMPARISON TIME
Wikipedia edit attempt: The LaRouche movement is generally seen as a version of the Ron Paul movement aimed at individuals with limited mental capacities
Souix Falls, South Dakota Mayor Huether is starting to sound like Lyndon LaRouche.
I used to call LLR’s supporters “LaRouche-bags”, but these days I can’t seem to find any.
There will always be crackpot fringes who wish to associate themselves with mainstream parties for the legitimacy they represent; even the Democrats have the LaRouchies. The problem is when the crackpot fringes become the party; imagine if Democratic presidential hopefuls had to philosophically and politically position themselves to get the LaRouche vote in order to capture their party’s presidential nomination.

STORY NUMBER FIVE: WEBSTER TARPLEY NOTATION
Definitely worth mentioning: xlcr4life, this week’s edition of World Crisis Radio starring Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley features a breakdown of why Occupy Wall Street’s gone down the tubes: therein, the guest commentator tells Tarpley that it was “LaRouche activists” who infiltrated the Demands Working Group last October. (I can imagine what Tarpley was thinking at the time; he did not venture an opinion on the matter.)
I’ve been thinking I oughta bring in more of a focus on Tarpley with the Larouche Challenge. An important conduit, that guy.
CLASSIC MEMORABILIA AND MEMORIES
Larouche important in history of the word “douche”
Lexicographer and Slate contributor Ben Zimmer points to a 1987 taping of The Morton Downey Jr. Show, during which an audience member taunted Lyndon Larouche with the phrase “Larouche is a douche.” The 1991 Anthrax song “Startin’ Up a Posse” includes the lyrics “You’re a douche, you’re a douche, you’re a douche,” in apparent reference to record executives and/or government censors.
MISTY WATER COLORED MEMORIES As for spotting a LaRouchie in New York,it reminds me of being on long road trips as a kid and desperately searching for the fabled Unicorn — a Hawaii license plate. Still I have to confess running into two of them outside my local post office many years ago. They were manning a card table filled with LaRouche tomes. I walked over and pretended ALMOST to buy one of LaRouche’s screeds.
I also remember they had a big sign demanding that Bill Clinton issue a pardon for LaRouche’s conviction for fraud and then appoint LaRouche the new head of the Federal Reserve.
A convicted fraud artist not long out of the pen running the Fed? In a strange existential way, it somehow sounded right.
Ah, La Rouche. My first encounter with his people was in 1998 (?) when they set up a table in my neighborhood and surrounded it with posters calling for “saving our President.” I was against impeachment of Clinton and I was ready to sign whatever they wanted me to sign. However, something didn’t feel right. The people looked somehow out of place. Holding the pen, I looked around and noticed a table with literature (La Rouche said this or that). I expressed myself. I also learned my lesson and now check what I intend to sign.
Now. Isn’t La Roche behind OWS?
Speaking about the posters with a star of David and Rothschild’s name next to it? Where did I see it? Where did I see it? Ah, I remember now. OWS (not true, Francis Fox Piven?) Just in front of a group of “Jewish” intellectuals. Educate your “intellectuals,” America.
Back in 1969-70, Lyndon LaRouche, under the name “Lynne Marcus” gave a series of classroom lectures at CCNY for people from the Socialist Workers or Labor Party. Very boring, but it all sounded so intellectual. The Obama with the square mustache poster can sometimes be see in the custody of one of his current minions who likes to sun herself on the corner of Park Avenue and 86th Street in Manhattan.
