everything’s looking milhouse

ITEM NUMBER ONE:  Richard Black talks to Mike Billington about the drug war in the Philippines, in support of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.  It takes “Right Wing Watch” over a month to notice.  (To be sure, it trickles through the media slowly — and the international media sometimes can’t quite spell out the difference between US Senator and State Senator.)

(Here he is on the “Ron Paul Liberty Report” regarding other anti-interventionist isolationist views.)

ITEM NUMBER TWO:  Well.  Here’s the wikipedia’s new subcategory regarding the 2016 election campaign of Lyndon Larouche.

On October 17, 2016, LaRouchePAC advised readers to write in Lyndon LaRouche and Alexander Hamilton in the 2016 Presidential elections. In the article “What We Need in 2016: — Alexander Hamilton’s Principles, LaRouche’s Four Laws”, the PAC wrote “American citizens should write in LaRouche’s name at the presidential ballot box to stand for the re-adoption of Alexander Hamilton’s economic principles, as LaRouche has reclarified them. “I’m writing in LaRouche and Alexander Hamilton, let’s get the nation to elect the right principles” will cut through the dread with which Americans are questioning each other about the approach of Election Day.” [18]

This exhortation was disseminated by PAC members through social media. No verifiable statistics have been assembled concerning vote totals.

The question is… does this presidential run qualify as a presidential run, thus making it nine, thus breaking the “eight time presidential candidate tie” with Harold Stassen that is so much a part of the Larouche legacy?

ITEM NUMBER THREE:  Helga:  But I have the most severe doubts that this question of a Classical education and the aesthetical improvement of man can be expected from this Trump administration.
Wow.  You don’t say.
I think you need a kind of spirit of ennoblement, of the sublime; and that level you do not find in any of the utterances from the Trump side. At least, I haven’t heard anything even close to that.
Read his twitter account more carefully.  It’s there.
But you have heard it from such people as Benjamin Franklin, as George Washington, as Alexander Hamilton, John Quincy Adams, and especially Lincoln.
I hear the first draft of the Gettysburg Address… famous for being rather short oratory… was even shorter, and (as Lincoln was renown for being crude in some private occasions) might just have read a lot like one of Trump’s tweet.  But that’s up for the archivists to uncover.

ITEM NUMBER FOUR:  So.  Where are we with Russia, as Obama offers his out the door retaliation and Putin waits it all out for the start of the Trump Administration?

They have Mike Gravel talking down the accusations of Russian involvement in hacking.  Because if anyone should know these things, it’s Mike Gravel, “Veteran Intelligence Dissident“!  (Hm.)

Of course, none of this stops the Larouche org from crowing over the increase in Russian might and power.

In an editorial in Hürriyet in Turkey, chief editor Murat Yetkin writes that Russian President Vladimir Putin has the most influence in the Middle East and the new U.S. Administration should work with him. […]

When briefed on this assessment, Lyndon LaRouche said it was on the mark and if we can get rid of Obama, a combination can be pulled together along these lines.

Though, sooner or later, in positioning toward here and there for increased “exposure” … we’re going to have to figure out what to do with Trump on China.

And then there’s the fight against the Real Killer.  In response to Obama’s statements, Lyndon LaRouche said, “These words are a threat to murder people of importance. This is what Obama’s stepfather taught him.” LaRouche called on citizens to “watch this guy, so that he doesn’t kill. He is publicly threatening the world. The nations of the planet are now threatened by Obama’s plan for mass killing of people.” Obama “is intrinsically a killer,” as LaRouche put it. […]

LaRouche emphasized that, “The signals are all there. Obama has made it clear. . . Obama has made repeated efforts to show his readiness for large-scale killing in the United States and other nations.” What needs to be done, is “to shut down Obama,” to prevent what he intends to do.

What the hell is it to “shut down Obama”?  And born of this is your conspiracy theories that surround any number of tragedies (tends to go toward “Gummint orchestrated it to take your guns away).

ITEM NUMBER FIVE:  Looks like the “lamestream media” is siding with “Obscure blogger” Webster Tarpley as against Melania Trump.  You can read the sarcasm pouring out here.

So what did Mr. Webster Tarpley from Maryland do to get the First Lady-elect so mad? He said mean things apparently, and spewed “false rumors.”

Sure.  So recap: 1) 70-year-old man, who up until this lawsuit has no measurable national or local influence, writes about rumors he read on the internet on his own personal blog. 2) Gets threatening letter from Charles Harder, Melania Trump’s attorney, to take down said articles. 3) Immediately complies with the request. Takes the articles down, and apologizes. 4) Then a few weeks later, gets sued by Melania Trump for $150 million for defamation. What the heck? How exactly did his barely trafficked website damage Melania’s reputation?

Things get interesting.  Sure.  They he no longer has Alex Jones as a megaphone for these things — Jones would be spreading false rumors about Clinton these days and charging for Trump — and it’s noteworthy Jones associates are hurraying the lawsuit — but he does have, oh, actual megaphones and signs he and his group waves around.

 Her attention to the website unquestionably brought him more notoriety and web traffic then the actual story itself!

Or, to put it another way

Whether a lawsuit by a future first lady against an unknown blogger is the optimal way to combat fake news is another question.

And to Rachel Maddow.

At that point, Maddow looped back to the retraction issue, eliciting a comment from Conway about how that doesn’t undo the damage. Maddow proceeded to cover her face and exclaim “My God, you guys are endorsing this strategy!” in the moment immortalized by this article’s featured image.

… You want to play “6 (or, I guess 2) degrees of separation”?  Rachel Maddow was a host on Air America Radio, alongside Mike Malloy, who once (to the howls of right wing bloggers) had Webster Tarpley on his show.  No evidence they met, though.

ITEM NUMBER SIX:  Town Hall goes back to thisThey knew the Obama/Hitler pictures actually were the work of progressive Lyndon LaRouche lunatics who show up at every political gathering

And, your EIR correspondent overseas press round-up.  (Note, it’s who cites Cheminade of Germany.)

ITEM NUMBER SEVEN:  Apparently Bill Roberts is the man to watch, if you’re watching the Larouche org’s apparatus.  We have a floundering Manhattan Project, and in light of the election cycles’ focus on the Rust Belt — all eyes are on Bill Roberts.  Expect a swing of activity and card-tables getting popped up in Michigan.

    Among other things, the memos allege that Michael Cohen, a lawyer for Trump, met in Prague with Kremlin representatives in August 2016 at a time when the Trump campaign’s Russia ties were receiving negative publicity. Cohen on Tuesday fully denied the allegations, calling them “ridiculous on so many levels.” Cohen figures extensively in the memos, as does Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. (And don’t miss the cameos from Green Party candidate Jill Stein and fringe fixture Lyndon LaRouche.)
    ………………………….

    And here it is. End of page 15 onto page 16

    Speaking separately, also in early August 2016, a Kremlin official involved in US relations commented on aspects of the Russian operation to date. Its goals had been threefold — asking sympathetic US actors how Moscow could help them; gathering relevant intelligence; and creating and disseminating compromising information (‘kompromat’). This had involved the Kremlin supporting various US political figures, including funding indirectly their recent visits to Moscow. S/he named a delegation from Lyndon LAROUCHE; presidential candidate JILL STEIN of the Green Party; TRUMP foreign policy adviser Carter PAGE; and former DIA Director Michael Flynn, in this regard, and as successful in terms of perceived outcomes.

    This is naturally lost in the more salacious tidbits of “golden showers” at the Ritz Carlton for some psychic cleansing mechanism to ward off earlier Obama stays. Which, if this is all an elaborately written piece of fiction (and we are in that info/ disinfo vortex of international spying), is why that part would go right near the top, before the intended audience just gets bored and tails off and doesn’t get to the part about Jill Stein and Lyndon Larouche.
