Is the new Campus Tour “Days of Action” placed in the “Committee of Correspondence” framework?

I.  From “Everything Trump Touches Dies”, the Republican strategist anti Trump pundit figure surveys about and finds

Of course, in the Trump era, no conspiracy is complete without an appearance by Roger Stone. Clad sometimes in a black T-shirt and beret, Stone frequently appears on Infowars, looking like a member of the Gray Panthers’ Viagra Liberation Front and sounding as if he’s mainlining Red Bull, steroids, and the ghostly ectoplasm of Lyndon LaRouche.

1.  So Rick Wilson connects Roger Stone to his appearances with Alex Jones, and not the Lyndon Larouche movement — never mind we have Roger Stone when asked about Larouche giving the “railroaded by Bush” line.
2.  Larouche resides as disconnected insult.
3.  Wilson appears to suggest Larouche as dead in a book published August 2018.

II.  Is there any evidence of such a thing having happened?
To bring about the necessary policy discussion on the collapsing British system, their fascist proposals on display at Jackson Hole, and most importantly the policy measures needed to bring about a classical New Paradigm, the international LaRouche Movement will hold Days of Action on university campuses in the first part of September, both across the United States and in close to a dozen countries internationally. This initiating deployment will be, in the words of Zepp-LaRouche, “an appeal to the youth of the world to transform the human species, by making sure that the human species becomes a space-faring species, and that there are principles which mean that this Green fascist stuff is completely wrong.”

Hm…  Not getting much news action on this front, but apparently the “College Tour” circuit was back on.   Was it?  I don’t see any college newspaper clippings on it, or social media reportages.  While there were a scattering through Obama, this was last a product in the Bush Administration years — where they sought recruitment by railing against Cheney and offered to double the square — that last one prompting students to believe that they were Beatnik collectives.  Much has changed since that time… first of all, it’s not student aged talking to student aged — we’d be getting to the point where the Larouchies are aged at competing as counterprogramming education to their professors.

Not sure what they’d be going for in the current age of Trump.  Perhaps, they’ll be seeking a “viral moment” — the Internet’s conservative side is full of the stealings and ripping off of the heads of MAGA hats.  The dilemma is that there’s not much a backing of college Republicans ready to zoom in on unceremonious Larouche table overturns.

In the current era, how do they respond to “Lyndon Larouche?  Isn’t he dead?”  (Breitbart appears to be the only media outlet of major note — for good or ill — that reports his birth still — for good or ill.)

III.  “Blog Talk Radio” … I’m not going to listen to any much — beyond the opening “Soldiers” song — but I guess given the link to the “sign the petition”… if  Trump gets us to the Moon, he’ll win California?

IV.  We figure out the true purpose of the CEC.

Even if the cash ban is introduced, which seems likely, the debate has provided the CEC with invaluable publicity for fundraising, which is one of its core skills. Last year it declared an income of $1.8 million, a huge sum for a party with no MPs.

Also seen with the CEC, a love of petitions.  Andand

They need to stay active as possible in response to the big question posed

Will the organisation of his Australian followers, the Citizens Electoral Council (CEC) – whose political influence has been in decline for some time – survive his demise?

Did it … survive his life?

The CEC has stood candidates in successive federal elections for nearly two decades, during which time it has been consistently and spectacularly unsuccessful. In 2004, the party ran candidates in 95 seats nationally and polled last in 80 of them. It received 42,349 votes, representing 0.36% of the total. It has fared little differently since then, except that it has fielded steadily fewer candidates. In the most recent federal election in May, the CEC only stood candidates for two lower house seats, who garnered a mere 2,834 votes nationally (0.02%).

As climate change comes back into focus as an issue, we’ll see smatterings of their other work:

The book was written by Lorenzo Carrasco, a Mexican immigrant to Brazil, and published in 2001 by the Washington-based Executive Intelligence Review, which was founded by the controversial U.S. conspiracy theorist and climate denier Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr.

While Green Mafia might seem inconsequential — reserved to the chat groups of conspiracy theorists — it may have left its mark on Brazilian far-right and conservative theories of environmentalism at the time.

And… UH OH.  Where’s the other Schiller Institute heading on environmental issues?

V.   The Washington Post is truly haunted by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.
So claims the Larouche Movement.  Why?  Because they published an obituary of Albert V. Bryan, Jr. — which noted that he was the judge during the trial that brought Larouche to prison.  It’s not the main thrust of the focus of his career — that comes after noting him as running a “Rocket Docket”.  Indeed, in the comments section for the Washington Post article, the main focus point comes in debating the merits of his approach.  No one seems to care about the prosecution of Larouche.

(The Boston Globe, for whatever reason, not haunted?…)

V.  Three Republicans “of note” have thrown their hats into the ring for the Republican Primary race against Donald Trump.  I’m not one to judge what a “win” means for their efforts to exert some definition of Republicanism against that pronounced by Donald Trump, but due to the nature of these things… Larouche’s name will come up as a measuring stick of some kind…

Because Donald Trump is Donald Trump, people seem to have assumed that the normal laws of politics don’t apply. But if you had been handed a sheet with the president’s name crossed out and just the various polling numbers on it, then you would have expected at least one serious candidate—by which I mean “not Lyndon LaRouche”—to challenge the sitting president this cycle.

A few points of interest on Larouche as a precedent.  In either 1996 or 2000 (don’t know which), Larouche won a delegate thereabouts — delegates refused to the convention rules.  Toss in the mix the participants in the Democratic nomination fight of 2012 against Obama, and we have what you see with rules governing the three Republicans running.  Not quite the precedent set with states that alloted delegates and shut down the primary against Pat Buchanan in 1992, (South Carolina notably with Sanford in 2020), but in dealing with Larouche, we’re dealing with footnotes.

But, if the Republicans running want to use Larouche as a precedent

In 1992 the California Secretary of State excluded Lyndon LaRouche from the Democratic presidential primary ballot. LaRouche sued in state court and won. In response to the court decision, the Secretary of State promulgated new standards: she will place anyone on the primary ballot who either campaigns in California, or who has appeared on the ballot in at least twenty other states, or who appeared in fifteen states and contested at least five caucuses.

VI.  The Washington Times focuses on the coming electoral meanderings of the Larouche Movement

“I don’t know what we’ll do in the future, but we will probably get into some independent expenditures,” she said. “We’re looking at the whole picture, especially in the Midwest. That’s our homeland; that’s traditionally been our stomping ground.”
It’s not clear how much stomping LaRouche did in the Midwest or other regions.

They failed to sell the Senate bid of … um… hm… I know they’re running someone for Senate, but I forgot who.  It would be nice if when a news media asks them about their current electoral plans, they would … maybe… promote who they say they’re running.

The PAC took in $2.1 million last year, but virtually all of it went to administrative costs and a donation to the LaRouche Policy Institute.

“When you see them transferring big amounts of money to entities that are basically another arm of themselves, it really doesn’t give you any clue what the money is being spent on,” said Andrew Mayersohn, a PAC analyst at the Center for Responsive Politics.

The little sums, on the other hand, show that they spent a couple bucks at McDonalds and Starbucks and the like…

While noting that everything is legal and abides by Federal Election Commission regulations, Mr. Mayersohn, who identified the PAC in question without being told, said, “I’m not aware of any other PAC that operates that way.”

That’s because… THEY’RE REBELS.  They play by their own rules of reality.  And the Larouchie running in 2020 can only hope to equal past successes… still the stuff of notes on looming elections such as

John Cornyn’s last election was against a billionaire who just squeaked by a “Larouche Democrat” through a run off primary.


VII.  Say what?

 The Queen is no stranger to accusations of serious crime. Lyndon Larouche, a prison time-serving Nixon aide and habitual joke presidential candidate, claimed she was the mastermind behind the entire global drugs trade.
You know… I was always a little surprised I didn’t see notice of Larouche’s death in gay publications.  We just see tricklings of “California history” popping up here and there.

VIII.  So, we got William Jones for China selling “the BRI”.  Also in the Global Times.  And here’s Ghana news bite.

A letter to the editor from Doug Mallouk taking in the “neo-Malthusian” motives of the El Paso shooter.
Also, more Trump support and British bashing from Doug Mallouk.

IX.  c=256, baby!

50 years ago, on July 20, 1969, America landed Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon, a victory for all mankind. America intends to return to the moon, and woman and a man, in five years.  Join us for an evening celebrating these historic milestones and the beginning of a new era! Reception to follow.
Free Concert: Mozart’s Solemn Vespers and Songs about the Moon from around the World. Presented by the Virginia Schiller Institute Community Chorus.

X.  Guilt by association of idea.

More recently, the idea of such a bank was promoted by Lyndon LaRouche. He was a self-trained economist who ran for president eight times, once, as the New York Times noted in his obituary, from a prison cell. LaRouche died earlier this year at age 96.
Angela Vullo of Virginia, a member of the pro-bank coalition, told the council that “misinformation” linking the group to the LaRouche organization is false. Stuart Rosenblatt, another member of the coalition, declined to comment before the meeting on any LaRouche connections.

XI.  At the Left forum… factnet post factnet forum

but it is the former where he explicitly outs “LaRouchies” for work they did as CIA lackeys in weakening the socialist movements of the 70s. His brief remarks on the matter commence at around 1:28:10 through 1:28:40.
