I. Larouche Org Declares War on Oprah.

Cloret Carl Ferguson has a call to action to the citizens of Brattleboro.

Who holds the Oprahs, Bezos, Gates, and Soroses to account, boasting of their trillions gained in 2020 – the pandemic year – knowing their mass of wealth is built on the corpses of so many millions of people?

Reader, will you act?

Oprah?

Ron Wieczorek writes to his editor … a chilling vision of coming doom.

Because you didn’t listen, we are now at the brink of a third world war, as the NATO allies conduct an intensifying policy of containment and confrontation against China and Russia. Should such a war occur, it would rapidly escalate into thermonuclear extinction of civilization. Instead of geopolitics, LaRouche proposed a dialogue of cultures, and a World Land-Bridge of development corridors.

These are the stakes: Oprah must be stopped.

II. Kanye West. Bernie Sanders, Gus Hall, Pat Buchanan. DSA. Chris Christie. Trump’s finance chairman is Lyndon LaRouche. Tulsi Gabbard. Kris Kobach. Lin Wood and Krakens. “neoconservatism”. (Positively) Caitlyn Jenner. John Cox. black hammer as “Larouche / red guard Austin” thing. jd vance. Trump supporting facebook protests.

One query — Mike Gravel — did he “become a Larouchite” after his time as Senator… Or after his run for President? Important distinctions in finding meaning here. (His alliance here perenial subject, with sometimes unclear reference points.)

III. Dateline Australia

A group representing post office licensees has defended links to a fringe political party accused of racism, anti-Semitism and conspiracy theories.

Licensed Post Office Group copped bipartisan criticism at a Senate hearing on Tuesday over links to the Australian Citizens Party.

LPO Group executive director Angela Cramp said it was great to receive support from the party.

“I have no understanding of what the citizens party represents. They are citizens of Australia. They are aligned with us,” she told the hearing.

Liberal senator Sarah Henderson asked why LPO Group’s campaign to phone ministers’ offices urging for former Australia Post boss Christine Holgate to be reinstated was aided by the party.

“I am questioning why you would be working with an organisation known to be anti-Semitic, racist and also with many of its policies’ foundation in conspiracy theories,” she said.

Cramp believes Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s furious rebuke of former Australia Post boss Christine Holgate in parliament was a “calculated set up” rather than an overreaction.

Twitter reaction: party that is over 30 years old and is far different to when it first formed. So ideological change is not allowed in your world? Is any party the same now, as what it was 30 years ago?

Rebutted with: LoL Are they or are they not still affiliated with the international LaRouche Movement? And the policy of re-establishing a government bank would hurt the LPOs and their Bank@Post deal.

IV. So many memories…

Hands up who misses the “how to tell if your neighbour has been brainwashed about Lyndon LaRouche” page?

Remember the LaRouche crackpots staked out at the Tax Assessor’s office on Lake Front?

What’s the most awkward date y’all ever been on?

say da This one time I came up on a guy handbilling near a community board meeting. Another dude was screaming at him calling him a communist. I told mad guy to fuck off and go back inside. It turned out guy #1 was a fascist with the Lyndon Larouche cult. Told him to fuck off too.

Deleted: In my college years, being curious about politics, I got a LaRouche book. I tried to read it. I considered myself a reasonably informed and intelligent person. I could not for the life of me figure out what the movement was about.

I went back and started reading about it the other day and, same

heh. No joke, would consider it. such fond memories of arguing w/LaRouchie who hung out outside my bank on Vermont Ave in Los Feliz & insisted Bertrand Russell wanted nuclear war; I’d say “no he’s *describing* it cuz he’s against it” and we’d just repeat ourselves until I got tired

gonna lie, I kinda miss seeing these goofs around, from 2001-2016 they were everywhere in L.A., Philly, NYC

Say Da I remember the Lindon LaRouche people walking with signs of Obama wearing a Hitler Moustache calling him a Nazi in 2009 as I was driving, my wife started yelling at them for the fascists they were.

Oh yeah – There were LaRouchites, pushing that garbage, outside my local post office in 2009.

wish Lyndon LaRouche was still around terrorizing northern Virginia

There was a LaRouche acolyte who used to come hand out pamphlets and wear sandwich boards outside Yeshiva University. He was always mostly cordial, which struck me as incredibly odd for a Holocaust denier.

Really? Everyone finally found out about Gazi and LaRouche. The other weird-ass founders of orgs people tried to recruit me into in 2016 will become memes soon enough

Point: A big reason I never even flirted with 9/11Truth was that by 9/13, LaRouche ppl were on campus insisting it was an inside job bc only US military pilots would know how to disable transponders & navigate expertly through NYC to hit those targets. Their certainty, just 2 days later, based on such clearly wrong assumptions pretty much innoculated me.

Counterpoint: What was your introduction into the “Conspiracy Life”? 9/11 did it for me.. but I used to read/listen to my dad read Lyndon LaRouche when I was a little kid. He used to get a newsletter, and tell me all the good conspiracy sItories. #LaRouche #GoodDadMemories

hm. such fond memories of arguing w/LaRouchie who hung out outside my bank on Vermont Ave in Los Feliz & insisted Bertrand Russell wanted nuclear war; I’d say “no he’s *describing* it cuz he’s against it” and we’d just repeat ourselves until I got tired

ok. Boyle talking about Carl Schmitt and Leo Strauss i feel like I’m 15 years ago, in the streets of Washington, spreading Lyndon Larouche’s “Children of Satan” pamphlet.

I once wasted an hour on the LaRouche drones. Never again. 😂❤️

I nearly missed a flight out of Houston Hobby (i.e., cops offered me option to return my husband in the bar or be detained) in the early 80s for picking a fight with Lyndon LaRouche followers.

I also ran into LaRouche folks at a table in front of City Hall in Monterey, CA about 4 yrs ago. They remain crazy as ever. (No police intervention was needed that time

and… i went to a cadem convention in college. grim affair. however there was a literal choir of larouchies sing-protesting outside

V. LORG makes friends and influences people.

Bunch of lies! They have been against the green movement because it was the late prince Phillip who wrote it not AOC. The eat babies comment was to mute AOC! Not a real comment, but a distraction to green polices that will limit the relative potential of all humans. Go be Amish

What you’re dealing with in this situation, is a victim of mass-brainwashing by the U.S. media, an individual who has taken his opinion from a mass media.

Sure. That time LaRouche wrote the introduction to a book collaborating with an Argentine colonel (guess what side) wherein the argument is made against victims of torture seeking justice in US courts

Fishing for Larouche recruits… Q Assist. Is the Larouche Organization trying for qanoners by way of subterfuge now?

Intrigued by this: Breitbart promotes Newton trap against Science and hypothesis! Lyndon LaRouche is correct about British Agent Newton, which suggests Breitbart is mirroring a Larouche narratve, I google what it is Breitbart has on Newton… Oh, chiding some collegiate reframing of Newton’s “white privilege”. Other bits of names dropping conspiracies… Personally, I can never recall if Nicholas de CUSA is on the friend, foe, or moved from one to the other list.

So it is… Larouche is like a kitsch American gift store retailing all the wares of European thought in distorted and warped forms. Trotskyist critiques of the Soviet Union become theories about how the Soviet Union was created by MI6 and Financial Capital tied to City of London etc If I had spent years in the American SWP I’d write books about how Trotsky was a British agent too. Truth be told, if intelligence operatives weren’t involved in organisations like the SWP, what were they doing with their budgets? Those organisations are all shit for class struggle too. I wouldn’t be surprised if the entire western left is Larouche-lite compromised today.U

Daniel Burke sees someone quoting Confucius and Mao, reaches out. As the old Millennials give way to the next “Youth Movement” the big push happening now, the question is — Is there a mass of Zoomer Maoists for the taking?

Mike Billington does McDuff Lives and garners a This guy really likes China.

Curious response to Schlanger : I am Jewish and even I can see the manipulation.

Meantime, over in lpac-land, Putin, like Trump, RULES. Biden sucks; Giuliani rules.

In as much as politicos are ever discussed, if they want to deal with Matt Gaetz, they can possibly hit hard the medical marijuana angle even if before you get there you are staring at Roger Stone. Probably best to change topics to Mozart and Trains — even though the latter topic is Biden – Buttigieg complicated.

A sign of revulsion from he target market on China.

VI. Electoral Digging.

HEY! is it acceptable to put a Lyndon LaRouche bumper sticker on my car?

Digging into voting data as to the Democratic nomination race in Arkansas 2000 and 2012. See here a dissection of Larouche’s 1984 Presidential vote — and this map spotlighting his best counties where he cracked 2 percent.

 

Noted, this accused Mondale in ads of being ”an agent of Soviet influence” controlled by a Swiss-dominated ”international grain cartel.”
. Watching the Mondale bahing clip again, I notic that even though I had been placing that “Swiss Grain Cartel”, he never mentions Swiss. I think I have been spreading a falsehood, picked up by multiple figures online, including “mill”…

… Who now also has a pretty awesome map for third party winners by candidate in the 1988 election.

Forgotten merchandise.

I miss Lyndon LaRouche pasting a Hitler ‘stache on the incumbent and calling it a presidential campaign.

Interesting quotes from Lyndon, suggesting a heretofore unknown love of Presidents Garfield and Mckinnley, and… a similar phrase as that used by  Jesse Jackson at the 2000 DNC Convention.

Matthew Yglesias gives out a Roschach Test.

“Ruthless”.

VII.  The Mass Strike is elsewhere.

Dateline somewhere or other: Seeing LaRouche people outside the post office is so surreal dude

Daniel Burke fights it out in Peapack, New Jersey … And thermonuclear war never had a chance!  (Had De har)

The hordes gather for an alternate “Mars Day”, because ” Earth Day — Feh”.  The Bullhorn Revolution carries.

Date line East coast:  Does setting up your LaRouche movement stand in front of the post office count as “touching grass”?

AND… There’s this Larouche freak who angrily comments on every lecture uploaded to Robert Brandom’s youtube channel. LORG or LPAC?

VIII.  Mapping disinformation

Commented around hereMatthew Sweet looks at another Russia TV conduit.  And here if you want to pay for it is a dash of a Podcast feature.

IX. Tarpley.

Let the record show, for those observing the machinations of Webster Tarpley and trying to find a conspiratorial plot — under the tutelage of the Larouche movement, he defended Bill Clinton from a vast right wing conspiracy beginning at least in 1994, opposed Obama!a and supported Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primary (wrote an anti-Obama book and for a time maintained an anti Obama positioning more consistently than Larouche —  they briefly explored the dark side in December 2008 — but managed to slide into the anti Republican positioning with a new anti Romney book in 2012 which merged to an echo of Democratic politics by the end of the Obama years.  (I am not sure where his pro Putin, exemplified by his ” Putin for Nobel Peace Prize” rally — moved off the table.)

Another blast from the past: Recall Lyndon Larouche’s female African American running mate 4 U.S. president, saying on a TV show, paraphrasing..”Populism is the way to go”. Her clothing was not typical 4 U.S. politician.. Who is that?
