Dr. Magarelli and friends

Monday, June 18th, 2018

STORY NUMBER ONE:  Donations noted for beleaguered college prof.

According to Ms. Koval, and as verified by the videos she recorded, Dr. Magarelli’s traffic in alternative facts is not limited to discussions of Jews. Dr. Magarelli tells his students that the moon landings were faked, and that human space travel beyond the Van Allen radiation belts is impossible. (In the real world, this fear was debunked when the radiation was first directly measured in the 1960s, living on mostly as a key plot point in the Fantastic Four comic books.)

Dr. Magarelli’s unorthodox beliefs extend to his politics. According to campaign donation records at opensecrets.org, Dr. Magarelli has been donating to the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee since at least 2010. In 1979, Lyndon LaRouche lost a $26 million libel suit against the Anti-Defamation League, which had declared LaRouche “anti-Semitic.” The New York Supreme Court ruled that it was reasonable to apply that label. Mr. LaRouche, who ran for president several times, has long trafficked in conspiracy theories, some centering on the Queen of England. Many of those theories have anti-Semitic overtones.

Actually this presents an intriguing question:  Why would he have started in started round about 2010?  We do see he was hit up for cash on a pretty good clip over the last decade, so I guess someone found him as a contact.  Maybe someone in the cult knows the place to find possible contacts for their purposes?

But had Dr. Magarelli’s colleagues logged onto RateMyProfessors.comas long ago as May 2004, they would read this review: “Very strange and paranoid conspiracy theorist. From the moment I walked in I felt like I entered the twilight zone. Easy grader. Didn’t learn much.”
The next year, Dr. Magarelli got a good review from a student who wrote: “He is very easy. Never takes attendance, and all he talks about is 9/11 and how it was an inside job. Oh yeah and don’t 4 get the U.S. never went to the moon. Easy A.”
A more recent review directly addressed the question of competence: “DO NOT TAKE HIM! This man will not teach you anything but conspiracies without any backup evidence to support what he says! He makes up historical facts and sells this as the truth! Claims the inquisition did not kill people, that some terrorist organizations are not terrorist at all, that 9/11 is the Air force’s fault. ABSOLUTELY INSANE!”

… And there you have it.  Just reach out and phone ’em.

As for what will happen to Magarelli… Tenure has its advantages…

Magarelli has been teaching at William Paterson for more than 50 years, Felson said.

“He was probably tenured when I was in elementary school,” he said.

“Unfortunately, particularly post tenure, the only kind of thing that can be done is when there are multiple complaints from students. It’s unfortunate that, partly out of apathy or just ignorance, not many students have complained. Professors are given a wide latitude in what they teach in their classes. If they have some wild and erroneous things thrown in, it’s very difficult for the department chair to do much about it.”

Well.  One professor that disproves the newly implemented Larouche coursework on “What THEY won’t teach you”.

STORY NUMBER TWO, probably redone:  John Birch Society declares:  Larouche the Puppets of David Rockefeller, George Soros.
The John Birch Society, with its publication “The New American”, holds true to the faith that the Larouche Movement long abandoned… what say ye, David Rockefeller?…

But the real real agenda [for the New Silk Road] is much deeper than hawking Chinese-made junk — it is exporting the deadly “ideology” of communism with “Chinese characteristics” that globalists and tyrants everywhere, from the late David Rockefeller and George Soros to Raul Castro and Vladimir Putin, are so fond of praising.   

Interesting group, considering Soros is Putin’s favorite boogey man as source of any opposition within Russia.  And who’s the lackey here?

However, beyond totalitarian-minded foreign rulers, there were plenty of crony “capitalists” and “useful idiots,” as Lenin referred to them, willing to embrace the scheme as well. So desperate for finding more endorsements was the regime’s propaganda ministry that Xinhua, a state-run propaganda megaphone that doubles as an intelligence front, even touted the backing of the controversial Marxist-linked La Rouche movement. “The Belt and Road Initiative is the most important strategic initiative on the planet,” Helga Zepp-LaRouche, president of La Rouche’s Schiller Institute, told the regime’s mouthpiece. “It not only brings economic prosperity to all participating countries, but also serves as a true basis for a peace order for the 21st century.”

So.  I suppose the Birch Society is keeping track of the Larouche presence in Chinese media.  See William Jones of EIR, that   ending poverty had long been regarded a major task for humanity, but until recently was seen as a “utopian dream.”
“With China, that dream is now becoming a reality,” he said.

Oh yeah.  And why is North Korea dealing?  Why, because of the New Silk Road!  Oh is it Donald Trump’s condos?

STORY NUMBER THREE:  sideways glancing at Roseanne Barr’s tweets

Worthwhile looking at Roseanne Barr’s two tweets… the ones that brought her public opprobrium and the cancellation of her show.

One: on a conspiracy tract linking Chelsea Clinton to George Soros.  Certainly nothing the Larouche movement would have done in the first decade of the 21st century, when the cult was on a Clinton lovefest and linking everything bad to Soros.

Two: referred to a prominent black public figure (though one that’s not exactly in my top of mind awareness) as a monkey or primate.  Sure.  Larouche already did that.

Anything beyond the fact that Roseanne Barr’s riding online conspiracy channels — worthwhile enough for the Larouche Movement to have once retweeted a Roseanne Barr tweet?  Not really.

STORY NUMBER FOUR:  Pro Trump Larouchies Gather with Anti Trump (and 9/11 Truther) Progressives for benefit of New Belt Road!

Joining forces, Jason Ross and Daniel Burke of the Trump Supporting Larouche Movement — otherwise fighting against the Deep State’s constitutional coup against Trump through means of Impeachment — and political activist Sander Hicks, fighting against Trump in running for congress .

… who wrote a book I read at least bits of (don’t remember if I read the thing or not), and found one passage worth notating.

Hm.  “NYC Students for the Belt and Road“.

Jason Ross, a representative of the International Schiller Institute, will be presenting on the principles of physical economics.
“After the death of FDR and the assassination of JFK, the United States turned away from global plans for economic and technological development that was intended for the good of all, and instead adopted the Wall Street finance-oriented economic orientation we have today — the looting outlook of that British Empire which we fought a revolution against! With the economic rise of China and the Belt and Road Initiative, a new paradigm is challenging the failed policies of the Western economies. Today, we require a New Deal-style infrastructure renaissance, made possible by ending Wall Street control of our economy and by ending the regime-change geopolitical wars of the past decades. This requires that we apply scientific principles of economics — the subject of my presentation.”

What say Sander Hicks?
“I just got off the plane from Iran, and I am fired up to talk about international cooperation, peace, and emancipating human potential! The USA could be doing a lot more to help other countries, like President Xi is doing with the Belt and Road Project. Let’s talk about what we can do in New York, with the open-hearted spirit of the international family.” 

We also note one of Sander Hicks’s gripes at the Democratic Congress member he’s running against: her opposition to the Iranian Nuclear Deal that Trump just tore up.  One of those pegs that the Larouchies are going to have square as they continue to support Trump… awkwardly finding no fault with Trump

Also present, as you see in the facebook comments, Rachel Brown, who in the same manner Sander Hicks took on Dick Cheney TO HIS FACE to expose the truths behind Cheney’s involvement in implementing the 9/11 attacks, took on Barney Frank to expose the truths about the Nazi ideology of Obama’s health care policy.  I suppose we can now compare the responses Cheney gave Hicks with that Frank gave Brown.

STORY NUMBER FIVE:  Australian Glass Steagall Bill gains… something

A shame that the proposal came from such a crazy group:

The Citizens Electoral Council are a tiny bunch of total nutters occupying a parallel universe.. I am surprised to hear even Bob Katter giving them oxygen.

Agree, kiss of death – as much chance to get through as any proposal to curb immigration coming from One Nation.
Mind you, I did sign the CEC’s petition for Glass-Steagall on the street, only to later find out how out of orbit, their other views are.

STORY NUMBER SIX:  The Race for Congress in the Post LYM era

After the “Youth” get older (and the prize victories of the era fade into historical perspectives) , the cult apparently re-verts to some oldtimers for electioneering.

Ron Wieczorek — running for US House in South Dakota, gets news coverage, of sorts, despite himself 

(KTIV) – Ron Wieczorek is on the ballot for United States House of Representatives in South Dakota.
 The candidate did not respond to requests for a biography or photo.

Or maybe he’s boycotting the “Fake News” media?

Okay, maybe not entirely… Wieczorek says he thinks economic conditions are similar to those of the early 1930s…………. And, see here …

He has one supporter here.  Will probably find three more before November comes.

STORY NUMBER SEVEN:  Who is Who?

Sandmark is a Swedish economist and human rights activist as well as a longtime collaborator of American political figure Lyndon H. LaRouche. Aren’t those mutually disagreeing components?  Sandmark is the chairman of the Schiller Institute in Sweden and the Stockholm Correspondent for the Executive Intelligence Review (EIR).

William Jones is the Washington Bureau Chief for the Executive Intelligence Review, and non-resident Senior Fellow of Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies, Renmin University of China. The article reflects the author’s opinion, and not necessarily the views of CGTN.

STORY NUMBER EIGHT:  The PO Office Tour in the Age of Trump

China, Russia, and the United States Can End War
Build the World Landbridge

What do we want?  Landbridge!  When do we want it?  Now!
Observers may note a strange throwback.  The Landbridge was a major issue when the Larouchies were stumping for Russia, today they ought be going about the New Silk Road as they now stump for China.

“We’re organizing all over the country — it’s a nationwide campaign,” said Christopher Sare, who handed out LaRouchePAC literature and encouraged voters to join Political Action Committees.
“…We just put out a ‘Campaign to Win the Future’ and the first step is stopping the coup against our president and exposing the British role in this thing.”
The LaRouche proponents are visiting as many places across the country as they can, Sare said.

Hard to tell.  Maybe the news media has shifted in not focusing so much on post office tour meanderings, or maybe the burning desire to impeach Obama does not make for as good copy as the burning desire to stop the Trump Impeachment, but the clip is a lot less in this administration than the last.

LaRouche is an American political activist, leader of the LaRouche Movement and was a controversial candidate in eight presidential elections from 1976 to 2004, according to the Lyndon LaRouche Collection 1979-1986 at the Thomas Balch Library in Leesburg, Virginia.

Noted.

Just Google LaRouche – the bottom of the sewer attracted to like kind I suppose. Anyway, a couple of nuts from NJ show up in Cairo to complain about Mueller investigating some pretty blatant solicitation of bribes from foreign countries not to mention corporations and we’re supposed to see that as a headline cover story for the Daily Mail? Let’s get real. Yawn.

And another stop.  By the same forces.
Adherents of LaRouchePac 2018, “The Campaign to Win the Future,” are distributing literature at this hour in front of the Cooperstown CVS on Chestnut Street.
Arthur Murphy
Very cool! I’m sure nothing quite so thought-provoking has happened in Cooperstown since James Fenimore Cooper wrote “The Bravo!”
Eh.  More like the latest in Water Skiing Squirrel headlines.
And, not quite at the Post Office, and maybe not even entirely Larouchies, but… larouchies amass to praise russia, It is absurd enough that Russia organises “Immortal Regiment” marches all over the world in early May, but the cynical propaganda stunt has taken a further step forward by gaining approval in a resolution by the New York State Senate. On May 8 this year Democratic Senator Luis Sepulveda welcomed a delegation of the “Russian Youth of America” to the Senate chamber and oversaw the adoption of his resolution, which said, “this Legislative Body is justly proud to commemorate the 4th Annual New York Immortal Regiment March organized by the Russian Youth of America.”It’s… who and what?Igor Kochan, the president of the Russian Youth of America, who was one of the visitors to the Senate, is vice president of production and logistics for a company called American Christmas, which provides customised decorations.According to Channel One, Daniel Burke, who describes himself on Twitter as a LaRouche activist, said at that protest: “We’re protesting against those who openly support the worst people in the Ukrainian government, which was formed by Ms. Nuland and Barack Obama. It’s destructive, it provokes Russia into war. We should all unite and direct our efforts towards peace. And what’s Obama doing instead of that? Now he’s planning to arm Ukraine. It’s absurd!”

And.

And with a Trumpian knack for nicknames! He’s tagged Mitch McConnell “Cocaine Mitch” because . . . well, honestly, it’s too convoluted to explain. But speaking of conspiracy theorists, Lyndon LaRouche and his compeers say the nefarious “City of London Imperial Oligarchs” are using Robert Mueller to defenestrate Trump so they can use Iran, Syria, Korea, and Ukraine to unleash war on Russia and China.

Look for it soon on Hannity. Oh, I forgot, you’re out of range of Official Trumpland TV.

STORY NUMBER ELEVEN

Titles found at EIR.  The Spirit of the.  Do they even have editors over there?

china seeks to bring back sabbath law

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

ITEM NUMBER ONE:

Interesting to note:  Alex Jones is at odds with his much favored Donald Trump regime over Syria.  “Fraud” he calls him.  And so he is done with him.  OR… Not quite.  Go to the websites and you see him still pumping up Trump, and we see the culture war becomes prominent.  To be sure, moving to more mainstream politics, we will always get such compromises on grounds of “support” for politicians.

Where does that leave Larouche, spouting in familiarity… on Conspiracy theory from Larouche thrown into the Left — Right agreement against the attacks in Syria.

Shortly after the Douma attacks, extreme-right activist Lyndon LaRouche blamed the UK for staging the chemical attack. Four days later, the Russia Federation’s spokesperson oddly echoed LaRouche’s charges that Britain had helped stage the attack. Regardless of whether LaRouche, who is known for his high-level Russian supporters, influenced or broadcasted the Kremlin’s narrative, the prevalence of such conspiracy theories on the left has an eerie historical resonance.

Familiar song and dance — brought and built up here … moving us back to about the time Alexandar Dugin was formulating his “National Bolshevikism” — to that question who was aiding/ assisting whom?

So here the break here comes with Alex Jones… with at least an acknowledgement of Trump as an actor in… launching missiles at Syria… and, you know, bringing John Bolton into the cabinet.  Surely the Larouchies can bring themselves to hold Trump as a British stooge, licking the Queen’s butt, as they would … anyone who brings John Bolton into the cabinet?  But… nay.

ITEM NUMBER TWO.  Nay.  They have an audience to try to bilk.

Volunteers manning a table outside the US Post Office in Cos Cob were hard to miss this week. With a giant poster featuring Donald Trump, Pat Servidio and his colleague Donald Clark in his red Make American Great Again hat caught many eyes.
For several days, the duo were stationed firmly on the sidewalk, but careful not to block it, spreading the word of the Lyndon Larouche PAC to anyone willing to listen. […]
Asked about their support of Donald Trump, Servidio said the President’s past behavior is irrelevant.

Fine.  What is important?

To illustrate his point, Servidio asked, “Where was CNN in 2003 when the Iraq War started? (Former British Prime Minister) Tony Blair pushed Iraq and weapons of mass destruction, and war broke out killing thousands of children.”

Neo-con John Bolton, right?

The LaRouche supporters say that in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre, and in the Parkland, Florida shooting last month, the FBI knew what was coming, but turned a blind eye intentionally in order to use the media to create a groundswell of activism for gun control, with the ultimate goal of disarming citizens.

And from there, Sandy Hook is staged.  Parkland is staged.  Just to take your guns away.  Just like Assad’s chemical weapons use was staged.

Servidio added that days before Adam Lanza fatally shot 26 people in Sandy Hook, CT, 14 port-o-potties had already been set up by the school.
“They roped them off and put up signs that said ‘Report Here,’” he said. “It’s fake. It’s their way to confiscate guns. They want people to have their guns taken away, and only the FBI and law enforcement to have guns.”

Servidio said the attempted coup against Trump originates in Britain.

“We’re going to do what the British tell us to do, and even invade Russia. They (Britain) are offering to work with the US on terrorism and arms control, and are saying Russia is a threat, when in fact Russia is key in fighting terrorism.”

All over Russian state tv… World War Three.  So the Larouchies provide their bit to the production.

“The worst thing is the media takes the propaganda and distributes it,” Servidio said. “How can they attack Trump when he opposed going into Iraq in the first place?” Servidio asked, adding that the goal of those against Trump is to take America into war.

Did he?

The Chinese government believes in keeping the Sabbath Sacred?

“Years ago it was all about family time. Sundays lasted all day,” Servidio said. “This oligarchy said we have to destroy the spirit of the American family. …They want you to work on Sundays so that they can make more money.”

Servidio and Clark say that America doesn’t make anything any more, but that Russia and China are willing to invest in US infrastructure and take people out of poverty.”

We note how Chinese media plays up the Larouchies’ embrace of the Chinese government…  Stephan Ossenkopp, a senior fellow of Schiller Institute in Germany, a think tank, said Xi’s speech impressed him with China’s emphasis on people-centric development.
Socialism with Chinese characteristics, derived from Marxism, has lifted millions of people out of poverty and propelled China’s striking economic success, he added.
Socialism.  Tell that to the Trump-supporters.  OR… heck, let’s to one further.

Xi’s commemorative speech highlighted a far-reaching influence Marxism has on the theoretical thinking in China since the 20th century, as well as on Xi’s thought, said William Jones, the Washington Bureau chief for Executive Intelligence Review news magazine.
Jones said China’s remarkable achievements in development made under the guidance of Marxist principles have ignited curiosity and interest worldwide in Marxism.

ITEM NUMBER THREE

For the children.  Presumably working for somebody’s child?

ITEM NUMBER FOUR

Ronald Wieczorek (it’s pronounced “wuh-ZOR-ek”) throws his hat in the ring to represent South Dakota (wow… the Larouchies are moving their House campaigns into the rural heartland now… then again, is this from the top down?), and is running “campaigning on the principles of LaRouche’s Four Laws“.  As an independent.  A “FDR Democrat”, and “Lincoln Republican.”  Not to mention “Henry Clay Whig”.  Maybe a “Eugene Debs Socialist”.  A “Ross Report Reform”.

Asked how he imagined he could, as South Dakota’s lone representative to the U.S. House, get other congressional representatives to focus on Glass-Steagall, Wieczorek said he’d take the same approach as in 2013 when he organized an effort to get the South Dakota Legislature to pass a resolution calling on the U.S. Congress to “enact legislation that would reinstate the separation of commercial and investment banking functions that were in effect under the Glass-Steagall Act (Banking Act of 1933).”
The 2013 resolution was approved by the Senate on a 19-16 vote. It passed the House 67-2.

Still left unresolved: how he intends on swinging the US Congress to pass the law.

ITEM NUMBER FIVE

footnotes in history … it’s who you mention when some neo nazi or otherwise wackadoodle wins a primary.   Illinois and then Texas.  Kesha Rogers (now running again, this time with a sympathy story behind her — though with predictably weird company:

Along with the keynote speakers and Tobin, Peter Joseph, the founder of The Zeitgeist Movement and author of The New Human Rights Movement, will be speaking at the event as well.

) and… hm.  So Larouche was the fourth most important presidential candidate of 1984?

The threat of the “Far Right” in Australia comes down to the Citizens Electoral Council having a booth somewhere.

Jordan Peterson and cultural marxism

ITEM NUMBER SIX

Noted … Bill Jones from EIR… asking an administration official, suggesting the UK set up the spy assassination, and … hm… working with the Russians on this one.

Q    Yes, this is Bill Jones from Executive Intelligence Review.  Coming to this conclusion, had you received a sample of the material which was used in this attack and confirming that it is this Novichok?  There was some controversy over whether this actually existed.  And secondly, has the Russian government, as they requested, ever received samples of this to make a declaration with regard to it?  There was pretty much — the Brits kept a lot close to the vest, and I’m just wondering how much has the U.S. independently been able to verify the accusations.

SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL:  Thank for that question.  Let me just say that we support the United Kingdom’s decision not to provide such samples.  The UK has accepted an offer from OPCW, the Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, to assist in the investigation.  Sharing samples with Russia would not provide further clarification on the origin of the agent used in the attack.

And let me also say Russia has had nearly a month at this point, and instead of explaining, has engaged in the usual obfuscations that we’ve seen from them in the past.

ITEM NUMBER SEVEN

Some of the reviews of Matthew Sweet’s Operation Chaos.  Guardian.  Pagosa Daily.  And… noted in the New Yorker.

By the end of the book, the Swedish prime minister Olof Palme has been assassinated; a prime suspect has been murdered; the American successor of the ADC has developed into a global private intelligence agency; and its leader, the extraordinarily unstable Lyndon LaRouche, has been pilloried on The Simpsons and Saturday Night Live for believing that Queen Elizabeth II controls the world’s drugs markets. What started off as a small anti-war movement had evolved, without intelligent design, into an independent, international fascist front, advocating, among other things, increasing weaponry in space.

One critical take here.:

Charles Gambell

March 3, 2018

It troubles me that Mr. Sweet has so much respect for the American killing machine that ravaged entire villages of women and children durning the Viet Nam conflict. It is on record that US Marines committed untold atrocities on the innocent people of Viet Nam, including torture, rape and murder. Yet this confused, libatious scribe in his book continues to deny the interviewees’ eye witness testimony. Thus far several of the interviewed in Mr. Sweet’s tome have rejected its accuracy. I am not surprised. Mr. Sweet is under tremendous pressure to present the view of liberal BBC (his employer) or he’ll be out of a job. That would be just as well … his other scribblings are far less interesting than this one – and this one is barely readable.
Of all the characters in the book with whom Mr Sweet met, barely one will vouch for a single word he wrote! Mr. Sweet’s account is remarkable in one respect: it is filled with inaccuracies. I know, because as one of the characters with whom he visited for several days, I find that the most central issues we discussed remain as clouded and confused (or even more so) as they were before Mr. Sweet spent tens of thousands of the BBC’s money traveling around the world drinking his fill at every alcohol waterhole he could find while he fabricated stories for his famously liberal employer.

Query at factnet…

Doesn’t Matthew Sweet’s book/investigations lead credence to Lyndon LaRouche’s views in the 1970s that his organization had been penetrated by the CIA?

Oh.  Hm.  I don’t know that I find anything new.  The “conduit to the Soviets” becomes interesting in light of their current shadowing of an alt-right “Russia World” (back to Alexandar Dugin).

I finally got a listen to three podcast interviews.  , along with the other interviews here.  (And having these three interviews one after another gets repetitive).
Little Atoms“.  Operation Chaos comes in at 15:10.  21:40 brings us to the “took them on a very bizarre path” over to the “National Caucus of Labor Committees”.  (Noted line :  Talk to Swedes about the European Workers Party and they’ll say “I remember those people.)
Hear an interview with “Spy Cast Museum“.  22:40 gets us Michael Vale as suggested CIA agent.  33:40 … I’m anticipating Larouche jumping in the picture when I hear “from the absurd to the surreal”… but nay.  “Has [Cliff Gaddy] ever been on this broadcast? … I think you should ask him.”  If I’m reading this right, that appears to be a no-go.  39:50 … “anyone old enough to remember him.”  [incidentally, he ties the record for presidential runs with Harold Stassen.]  (And the revelation that “B Sanders of Vermont” was on their mailing list).  45:30 — “a partial list of what Rockefeller was blamed for’.  (51 minutes in we get to Queen Elizabeth, and the interviewer snatches in the David Ickes “lizard people” line, before Matthew Sweet that, no, at least human.)
Hear an interview here with “Cosmic Shambles“.   [Alsosee down here.]  (15:50 brings us Larouche… The Bourne Identity… allusions to 1984…. 24 minutes in he brings up Jeremiah Duggan.)

ITEM NUMBER EIGHT

Disgruntled Boomer LaRouchie; Attends Nunes protest.  Hilarity ensues.
(Actually, look around youtube and you’ll find a Good Morning America interview from 1986, as too Novak and Evans grilling him.)

why the cia should use more elaborate code names than “chaos”.

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

So.  Anyone read Matthew Sweet’s Operation Chaos?  Not necessarily going to fly off the shelf, but I hope it’s got its niche.

The book begins thusly.    (And some events and figures covered at Larouche Planet here.)

The Guardian pipes in The American Deserters Committee was of course infiltrated by the CIA, as well as by the Swedish security services and presumably the KGB as well. The survivors Sweet has tracked down all believe they know who the spies were, and all disagree. Most of the explanations are plausible. Certainly they are far more plausible than the undisputed reality, which is that the core of the group who went to Stockholm fell into the clutches of an American fantasist and convicted fraudster, who built a cult that endures to this day.

Kirkus Review:  Unfortunately, the presentation is somewhat disjointed, as Sweet jumps among a variety of perspectives. Readers looking for a neat conclusion to the deserters’ story will likely be disappointed; the tale is ongoing, and the participants have gone in different directions. The shift from the antiwar story to the rise of the LaRouche cult, while implicit in the material, reads like an unannounced detour.

Well, okay…  Announce it: the book lands on having a Part one and a Part two.  I note Michael Vale doesn’t particularly come out smelling like roses with the Part One, running his own ego-stripping sessions on his cadre before they next land in the Larouche movement.

Bo Burlingham, on life in the ADC:  There was an awful lot of playacting that was going on.  I was part of that.  We were all sort of play acting, trying to be relevant.  Aware that these big events were happening, and wanting to have some part in them.    And then on to…

(pages 170 – 172) In a modest apartment in Greenwich Village, Michael Vale met Lyn Marcus for the first time.  A lanky figure in his early fifties, with thinning hair and a bow tie as prim and proper as his New England accent.  A pipe smoker, whose tobacco habit also gave him a useful rhetorical prop.  He smiled beneath a pair of dark glasses and welcomed Michael into the Labor Committees.  Michael accepted.  It was the biggest mistake of his life.
“Often, I don’t catch the signals of danger, or if I do I don’t heed them,” said Michael.  “But I saw this one coming.  It’s a pretty eerie feeling to be in the presence of a psychopath.”
[…] I knew the next part of the story, and the shadow that it had cast upon Michael’s life.  I knew the man he called Lyn Marcus, and had once regarded as a political ally, was the villain of his biography.  I also realized, as we spoke, that Michael Vale believed his old enemy was dead.

Stop right there.  That’s a pretty funny take away.  A common belief among people whose associations with Larouche are far more fleeting than Vale’s.

Read the next paragraph here.

“The enemies have changed a little,” he said.  “It used to be the Queen of England, Henry Kissinger, and me.”

Instead of, apparently, Zeus.  And I don’t know if this is a revelation or old news, but a quick comment.:

Molly Kronberg spent a peculiar few minutes on the line trying to stir the interest of the tv journalist Geraldo Rivera.

Regarding the new news that the grand world plot against Larouche (and it continues, as we see here)– well, follow the logic if you may… I may point out… wait a decade and Geraldo Rivera may just have bit, for roughly the effect Morton Downey Jr. gave him.

Matthew Sweet was apparently surprised by Bill Jones’s appearance at a White House Press Conference: EIR has been perched there for the past however many decades.  (As too other odd  figures… you had the Jeff Gannon “controversy” in the Bush Years — himself notably wound up in Larouchian conspiracy land as conspiracy theorists speculated back to the White House sex ring).  The Trump Administration has added skyped bloggers to lob some soft balls.  And, looking over the acknowledgements — in any future printings the sentence that thanks all the former Larouche followers who helped than lists a bunch of names of former followers… as well as Dennis King — could be clarified.

II.  All right.  The historical allusion and marker lands on another wacky candidate in Illinois, and so discussion turns to that whole 1986 election debacle.

What’s Alex Jones’ take on Lyndon LaRouche?
Slightly aroused.

Oh man, there was (is?) a LaRouchie stationed on the sidewalk Broadway near Wall Street for years and years. He looks exactly as you would expect.
Conspiracy nuts try to join them, but then wander off when they can’t understand what in hell their new conspiracy is about.

At the risk of being beaten to the asphalt of a parking lot, I liked his ideas on a high speed coast-to-coast train.

I remember 1986 in Illinois very well. I once wrote a soc.historywhat-if post about it where I noted: “It is in any event pretty clear that Fairchild’s and Hart’s votes did not reflect approval of the LaRouchies’ views of the world. (And they did not reflect any huge LaRouchie campaign, either–the LaRouchies claimed their total campaign expenditures were only in the hundreds of dollars!) The LaRouchie candidate against gubernatorial candidate Adlai Stevenson III for example got well under 10 percent of the vote. Likewise, whenever there was a three-way contest between the Democratic regular, a “respectable” opponent and a LaRouchie, the LaRouchie came in a poor third–which suggests that the LaRouchie vote was partly a protest vote by people who may not have known who the LaRouchies were but *did* know they were opposed to the regular candidate (contrary to the conventional wisdom that they didn’t know who the regular candidate was)…”

A bit of a bias here?  honorable Adlai Stevenson III.

ITEM NUMBER THREE:  Conspiracy reverberates.

It occurred while I was traveling the country to talk about my new book on Edward Lansdale, the legendary covert operative who in the 1950s helped to defeat a communist insurgency in the Philippines and then to create the state of South Vietnam. While Lansdale was once known as a pioneer of counterinsurgency, in recent years he has acquired notoriety among conspiracymongers who think that he was responsible for John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

This astonishing claim was first made by the now-deceased L. Fletcher Prouty, an Air Force officer who worked for Lansdale at the Pentagon in the early 1960s. In retirement, Prouty became a prolific conspiracy theorist who was associated with the neo-Nazi Liberty Lobby and Lyndon LaRouche. He said that “the Churchill Gang” murdered FDR and that David Rockefeller stage-managed the fall of the Berlin Wall.

ITEM FOUR:  Wait for it… from the anals of political positioning.

In a surprising action yesterday, the never-Trump (and always never-LaRouche) Washington Post…

Some agree with the positioning, I see.

The Republican Party’s head-first dive into breathless conspiratorial fantasies in defense of Donald Trump is a brand-defining moment as the Party of Lincoln morphs into the Party of LaRouche.

ITEM NUMBER FIVE:  A bit of a blip to show that, whatever else you can say, PANIC was dipping into some popular support.   From Trina Robbins’s Last Girl Standing — on editing an AIDS benefit comic book.  See here on Neal Adams.  (183-184)

Neal Adams really didn’t get it.  The page he submitted consisted of a large male face with an A on the forehead.  The lettering around the face explained that in some future time, AIDS had been eradicated by isolating people with AIDs in special camps (and to judge by the drawing branding the letter A on the foreheads!)  He was not being ironic!  The whole thing was so homophobic that I decided Robert should write the rejection letter, which he did: an amazingly polite letter, considering.  Neal sent a letter of protest to our publisher!  I thought this was akin to sending a letter of protest to the principal if the teacher fails you on a test.  His letter was pretty incoherent, and made references to “Nazi’s”.  I couldn’t resist.  I sent him a letter asking what it was that belonged to the Nazi’s.

ITEM SIX:  Erm.

President Trump’s historic trip to Asia last November is one of the greatest diplomatic achievements by any U.S. president in recent memory.
All very cooperative with China and Russia.  Follows off the heals of this, right?
Therefore, I support LaRouche’s Four Laws: 1. Re-instate Glass-Steagall; 2: Establish a National Development Bank; 3. Issue $10 trillion federal credit directed to create modern infrastructure; and, 4: Replace the war machine with a commitment to peaceful space exploration and fusion power development.
Trump supports none of those.  So goes Kevin Morgus to the Albany (OR) Democrat.

Others noted.

ending geopolitics

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

I.  Mae Brussel, the world’s greatest single conspiracy buff, has insisted, over various underground radio stations, that virtually all the terrorist Left is a secret C.I.A. operation to discredit the rest of the Left. More recently, the U.S. Labor Party has taken up the same model and is accusing almost everybody in the Left of being a government agent working to discredit the Left. Although neither Mae Brussell nor the U.S.L.P. are any better at preparing an evidential case than the late Joseph McCarthy, the Watergate investigations revealed that the FBI’s “COINTELPRO” operation did involve agents provocateurs and attempts to divide the Left by inciting crime and spreading paranoia. Maybe all the paranoids are right, after all.  — Robert Anton Wilson, Cosmic Trigger, 1977

II. At long last… a … uniform?  That the members of the org can dawn when they do their PO Box tour (or wherever it is their deployments are in the Trump Era.)

laroucheshirtweirdlaroucheshirtweird2   So, when someone accuses them of spouting out goobley — gook, or asks them to clarify what it is the “B-12″ incident, they may just point to their shirt in a state of smug self-assured over-confidence.  How this wins over the masses, I do not know.
(Yes.  These things probably belong to a motorcycle club.)

III.  Stop me if you’ve ever heard this one.
A one time member.  Left a once solid organization, the Larouchies, dedicated at one time to fighting the good fight.  Or, was when s/he joined.  Now, it’s sad to see what it has become — truly deplorable — as a totally different organization than when I was a part of it…

… when it never would have worked to put themselves as supporters of a world-paradigm shifting Trump administration… and were all about… er… doubling the squares?

They still do choral performances to C=22, (prolific enough)  so don’t quit on them just yet, true believers!

There is one novel and interesting wrinkle in this testimony from a recent ex-member.  A reformation past the scandals of the 80s.  Given the word in the org continues to portray it all as political persecution with time served by political prisoners — lead by the most feared of all political prisoners — Larouche himself — it does make for a pretty lame glasnost.

But, as it were… no one can quit now.  How else are they going to succeed at their stated goal of ending geopolitics for once and for all, if all the foot soldiers disperse into… geo and politics?

IV.  I see a decent uptick of features in mainstream media on the “New Silk Road” — China’s development of high powered transportation hubs to connect to major European and Asian ports.  It’s not without its birth-pains.
One focus, running counter to Larouche propaganda, is the irony of China seeking a larger role in the world as the US (under the aeges of the current president) seeks a smaller role.

Echoing the Larouche Nero fixation during the past administration… Nero comes back into vogue.  A little too easy.

V.  2 time Democratic congressional district of the Texas Fighting 22nd, and forcer of a primary run-off for US Senate seat…
… The most successful Larouche politician of the Obama Era, though no one who got even close to winning…
has pulled up the stakes, and fled the Democratic Party to run as an independent.  Into the 9th District.

By some accounts, the Democratic Party is actually fielding a challenger against Pete Sessions — staring at the rejiggered map of 2016 which lead some suburban areas to become more Democratic and some rural areas more Republican in keeping with opinions on Trump — and had Texas closer than Ohio for Clinton.  Yet, Kesha doesn’t want to be a factor in the district that, theoretically, she has acquired a base with?
HmAmong the items on her campaign platform were opposition to fracking.  Surely this will be at the center of her campaign?

High speed rail takes citizens across great distances in minimal times. Manufacturing is accomplished on modern platforms. Space exploration has been made a priority. Most importantly, the people are optimistic about the future; new ideas are the subject of impassioned debate and discussion. This is a project long envisioned and campaigned for by Lyndon and Helga LaRouche. President Trump, whom Congressman Green wants to impeach, is exploring how the United States can benefit from this Great Project.

Just as a vote for Rogers was a vote for the impeachment of Obama, a vote for Rogers is now a vote against the impeachment of Trump.  Got that?  And if that doesn’t float your boat… maybe this other one might win you over:  A vote for Kesha Rogers is a vote to end geopolitics.

VI.  Dateline Australia.

Today we report that a Senate committee is even seriously listening to complaints from extreme fringe group, the Citizens Electoral Council, traditionally connected to bizarre American conspiracy theorist Lyndon LaRouche, that the government could commandeer bank deposits.

VII.  China is the new Russia.

Surprise appearance by the EIR.

VIII.  Oh.  Here they are.

There was another protester standing in the parking lot handing out documents from the LaRouche Political Action Committee attacking Robert Mueller, showing a picture of Mueller side by side with the burning Twin Towers after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and urging people to go online to find out more.

Look it up, and you’ll find out more at… er… lar-pac?

The U.S. House of Representatives plans a nearly unheard-of five-day session in the week of Dec. 18-22, after activists with the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee distributed a dossier titled “Robert Mueller Is an Amoral Legal Assassin: He Will Do His Job If You Let Him” to every office in the House of Representatives today.

 IX.  “Weirdest Presidential Candidates“.  A few celebrity ones thrown in there… Jello Biafro.  I always had a soft spot for Hagelin — probably in the same vein as Victoria Woodhull..

what in the estulin?

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

ITEM NUMBER ONE:  It is instructive to take a gander at the Daniel Estulin 2015 book covering the Tavickstock Institue, on the question of what portion of this book is simply replaying the works of the Lyndon Larouche Movement.  54.5 percent.  Therabouts.

Skip to the endnotes for each chapter, and count the sources to Larouche publications — from the 1970s on into the 2010s.  I note that a weakness in my ability to spot things quickly, as the citations get a little slippery — sometimes skipping over to the American Almanac website instead of the orginial EIR source, for instance.  As well some unfamiliarity with names throws me off.  The result is that in two countings, I myself have slighly diverging numbers.

Introduction: 5 out of 8
Chapter one:  52 out of 84
Chapter two:  14 out of 29
Chapter three:  1 out of 18
Chapter four:  48 out of 80
Chapter five:  50 out of 91
Chapter six:  42 out of 68… with an additional 3 going to, believe it or not, the Larouche Planet website (“Larouche in Wiener World”)
Chapter seven:  17 out of 31

The one that stands out in this group — Chapter three, is instructive.  Here we have a study of how the Illuminati is sending messages through popular music.  It makes a big deal of hip artists’s boasts on being the “Rain Man”, never making clear what this is supposed to entail — is this transferred to simply the Illuminati’s boastings of “Rain Man” dom, conditioning the public to accept the current metaphorical rain, or a signal to its puppets to switch on some “rain” switch?  On the dealings with Rihanni’s song “Under the Umbrella”, we have the issues of robots dancing and goat heads in music videos — the robots Estulin spells out as being conditioning us to accept our robot overlord future — though what this has to do with the Umbrella I don’t know… maybe we’re just all under the Umbrella of the Unseeing Eye?
And what of the echoing of Rihanni with “Umbrella… Brella… Brella… A?”

Anyway.  We can see why Larouche hasn’t much to say about this, being the Larouchies don’t much deal in popular music.

ITEM NUMBER TWO.  Hey now.  An interesting recent attempt at editing wikipedia for some actual analytical purpose on Larouche and his movement.

The Wikipedia editing attempts far-right Perhaps now more clear than ever,  which espouses deeply [[antisemitic]] ideas and conspiracy theories characteristic of the far-right, Sure… the movement’s underlying ideology entails a series of [[anti-semitic]], [[Holocaust-denying]] [[conspiracy theories]] that are paradigmatic of the far-right No.  They stand for … um… Silk Roads and Land Bridges and… um stuff — foremost of all,  its leadership, in particular, LaRouche’s wife, [[Helga Zepp-LaRouche]], has made the conspiratorial, far-right, and [[anti-Semitic]] underpinnings of the movement evident to the public in a 1979 statement that refers to the Holocaust as a “hoax”.   Good to point out a leadership shifting.
In her statement, Zepp-LaRouche, writes: “While in the US, no one especially cherishes even the slightest illusions about the power of the Zionist lobby the present administration, the influence of a covert Zionist lobby in the Federal Republic has been only a few initiated political figures known, but not the general public. And so we have to take the hypocritical Holocaust hoax as an opportunity to blow the whistle on these foreign agents.”

Interestingly enough, the “Anti-Zionist” tag is removed on Lyndon.

ITEM NUMBER THREE… too clever by half.

The peinlich presentation of the Ignoble Prize in Economics to Richard Thaler—the latest in a long line of Stockholm and Oslo

There actually is an “Ignoble Award”.  Here’s who won it this year

ECONOMICS PRIZE [AUSTRALIA, USA] — Matthew Rockloff and Nancy Greer, for their experiments to see how contact with a live crocodile affects a person’s willingness to gamble.
REFERENCE: “Never Smile at a Crocodile: Betting on Electronic Gaming Machines is Intensified by Reptile-Induced Arousal,” Matthew J. Rockloff and Nancy Greer, Journal of Gambling Studies, vol. 26, no. 4, December 2010, pp. 571-81.
WHO ATTENDED THE CEREMONY: Matthew Rockloff and Nancy Greer

Surely the Larouche Movement can be put in the running and win something one of these years… just like, say… Jack Van Impe once won an award.

Webster Tarpley wins a mention for a dubious honor… but when was he ever a star bright enough to become dimmer?

ITEM NUMBER FOUR:   Once again, they’re hitting the Farm Circuit.

Oct. 28 will be a day full of expert presentations. Bob Baker is an economic policy consultant and specializes in agriculture economic research. He is currently a correspondent for the Executive Intelligence Review news service.

Will Kansas farmers go for the Silk Road?  Only time will tell.

They’re also hitting the Italian Engineer circuit.

ITEM NUMBER FIVE

Run down of BUSO campaigning in Germany...

“The future of Germany is the New Silk Road!” reads one pinned to a streetlight near Berlin’s main train station.
“Cultural renaissance instead of barbarism,” reads another. And, “Germans can stop world war!”
These posters, in a matching blue and yellow color scheme, all urge Berliners to “vote BüSo.”

More or less, a “What is this? item from Foreign Policy.  The Larouche Movement responds.

The author of the attack, Bethany Allen-Ebrahemian, comes from the East-West Institute in Hawaii, and the detestable contempt she affects for Chinese intelligencia and leaders is a mark of neo-Con geopoliticians. But it belies a real fear of the New Silk Road policy, and the LaRouches as leaders of it.
Foreign Policy will be one U.S.-based observer nervously counting the votes of the parliamentary slate of Germany’s Civil Rights Movement Solidarity (BüSo) party.

Sure.  The members of Foreign Policy magazine watched the results,biting their fingernails as the results came in, wearily counting BUSO votes, like they were liberals watching the election results map of Michigan last November.

Results of the German national election are in:
Out of 46.4 million votes, BÜSO gains 6735.

Then they… partied?

It is interesting to note that there has been a shift of media, from Russia’s propaganda outlets to China’s.  And it gets rather comical — Helga’s really laying it on thick, ain’t she?

ITEM NUMBER SIX

Hunter Cobb sells the China “work” —rarely does one see the name LaRouche in print, despite his visionary leadership and willingness to take on the powers of Wall Street and London, weathering wild defamation, proven targeting by the FBI, etc.
I have been an ally of LaRouche for more than 40 years and have seen his vision becoming a reality in much of the world in the recent years.  […]
One of the two Americans who traveled to China for this conference is a close associate of LaRouche. He gave a presentation here in Alameda Sept. 30. Those who would like to know more, may contact me at hunter

Interesting to see just what was happening at this conference

“… I think we have to go for the full thing. I want full victory. I want to crush Mueller, crush the entire apparatus that’s out to destroy Trump, this country, this organization, and I want to build up this country over the next 20 years. I see Americans as optimistic and hardworking and mission-oriented, and having fun the way I see young people in China doing today.”

On paper it looks like a rousing speech, but then he closes the meeting and the applause makes us feel there are like 5-10 people in the room. If Mike think he’s “on to something,” I think he’s very sadly fooling himself.

And elsewhere… American intellectual Lyndon LaRouche… so he’s got that.

ITEM NUMBER SEVEN.  Historical notes

One.

In October 1983, an article in the Executive Intelligence Review, a publication linked to controversial American politician Lyndon LaRouche, proposed the building of a Kra canal to the Thai Ministry of Transportation.

TWO:

Atlas Novack opposes a constitutional convention in California— don’t vote for this ballot measure; do what you did to the larouche one.

Three:

So, way back in 2004, I decided to engage one of them in conversation, which I quickly learned was like entering an alternate universe where up is down and the Pope is Hitler.
Somehow, we shifted from politics to science. They believed that “reductionism” — the notion that complex phenomena are best understood through a process of reducing them down to simpler parts — was Satanic. Not wrong or oversimplified, but Satanic. As in something the Dark Prince himself would approve of. They also didn’t like Isaac Newton very much. […]

In other words, Lyndon LaRouche is some strange combination of Paul Ehrlich, Ray Kurzweil, and Alex Jones, with just a dash of Naziism. If that’s not a winning campaign, then what is?

I came across him when researching history of mathematics.  He had a thing about Archytas, and in contrast a list of great mathematicians he didn’t like.
Especially “putting down” Euler — that was really over the top.

I’m sure we can find some non over the top Euler critics out there.

FOUR.  Illinois 1986.

Five:  a quick mention of a Citizen Electoral Council win.

ITEM NUMBER EIGHT

An item published by the org: An article published The Nation Caves, Attacks VIPS Report

Yeah, but I think this is more worthwhile reading… at least in terms of what’s important here..

Appalled?

ITEM NUMBER NINE

David Neiwart’s new “What Happened” book — Alt America — on the so called “alt right” and its rise through the Obama administration into the new Trump administration does not have a mention of Larouche in the index page.  But somehow we get this…

The phrase “cultural Marxism” had first appeared in right-wing circles only a few months before, in July 1998, when William Lind, leader of the far right Free Congress Foundation, gave a speech he titled “The Origins of Political Correctness”.

It then slides into a mention of Norweigian terrorist Anders Breivick.

Notable here because William Lind made the coinage for the Larouche Movement in 1992 …

the movement

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

I.  For the first time in a year, when my uncle alluded to Larouche by way of stating what a weird blog this is, I heard a random mention of the name “Lyndon Larouche”.  It was in an overheard conversation, with the man walking past me saying something like … “So.  He’s just been posting these long conspiracy diatribes on the Internet.  Like he’s Lyndon larouche or something.”
So, as we see, the name is, after all, Out there, in public currency.

II.  Robert Dreyfuss, for Rolling Stones magazine.  And so goes the deal, where any politically contentious article by Dreyfuss will get that … “say, you know where he got started” line.

III.  Sort of lost track of this one, but worth noting… Webster Tarpley has shuffled over some money over to Melanie Trump to get her off his back for calling her a one time whore.

The lawsuit was settled in January and Tarpley agreed to pay a “substantial sum” as a settlement. While how substantial the sum was remains a mystery, a separate lawsuit has given the world a price tag on how much defaming the first family could cost you.

IV.  By way of background, in the early 1990s, the Larouche group took up the cause of removing a statue of Confederate Albert Pike.  Which is how I’m particularly jarred by the manner this section of this wikipedia article moves through the Larouche protest to the “renewed interest after the Unite the Right Rally”, given the current Larouche line, more Trumpian than Trump.

In the case of Charlottesville, both gangs in the action were either controlled by the FBI or by other trained intelligence operatives on the scene.
The Klan and White Supremers on the scene, Richard Spencer and David Duke, are long-time assets in the FBI orbit. Duke was largely a George H.W. Bush creation.

The actual George HW Bush choice at the time of David Duke’s political primary victories was one Buddy Roemer.

It turns out that the other major figure, Jason Kessler, now proclaimed to be “Alt Right,” was actually an Obama activist until November 2016, and participated heavily in “Occupy Wall Street.” Some say he was an assignment editor at that point for CNN.
Some say…

A strange metamorphosis, to say the least. The man who drove the car injuring many and killing a protester, was a mentally ill grifter named James Fields, whose fascination with Nazism and violence had been profiled by authorities since high school.
On the other side are Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe;
Clintonista.  A more purer Clintonista than the one time Clinton lover Larouche,  and the strange metamorphosis we get from them on them….
Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer; Brennan Gilmore, a former State Department employee who some say worked for the CIA;
“Some say”…
the Obama “resist” apparatus in Virginia;
Don’t forget the hashtag!
and the violent, lawless anarchist grouping known as “Antifa.”

V.  Abdicating whatever claims he had as an advocate for Glass Steagall, abdicating his  war weary stance on Afghanistan, other than a grand Wall against the Mexican border — which runs contrary to Larouche line on immigration heard about Obama as “deporter in chief”, all infrastructure projects disperse  — what policy binds the Larouche to its pro-Trump status?

VI.  Letters!  I stand with President Trump. This is because I believe he is genuinely concerned about the future of our nation.
I am now going to say what appears to be the forbidden word among the major news media — “Lyndon Larouche.’ I’ve been associated with this organization for over 20 years now and I have an online subscription to the EIR DAILY ELERT news. I also listen in to their weekly conference calls. I deem this news source to be more truthful and reliable than any other news source I know of. This is the main source of the information I use in arriving at many of my conclusions.
It’s amusing because, when Trump was campaigning, Larouche treated him like a joke. Their organization is now one of his most ardent supporters, though I personally favored Trump at the time. The change came when they found that he is in favor of the return to the Glass Steagall Act. This act separates the banking system into investment banks and commercial banks. Commercial banks were not allowed to gamble depositor’s money in the stock market. It was first enacted in 1933 during the Roosevelt administration. […]

 And Ray McGovern’s group, right?
According to Veterans Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, Russiagate has been proven to be a fraud. The U.S. citizenry must perform the necessary political intervention that can order the reorganization of the U.S. government, the U.S. Treasury, the Fed and Wall Street. Then fund the redevelopment of North America that can beat back the Wall Street directed Greatest Depression upon us. Millions of lives are at stake. We’re wasting time. Implement Larouche’s Four Laws. Contact your political representation. Contact the President.  Ron Wieczorek.  Mount Vernon

VII.  Dejavu.

Speaking of Trump’s staff, the National Security memo — authored by Rich Higgins, who was later pushed out of the NSC — is very disturbing. That these are the views of a key White House staffer, and that this information actually landed on the president’s desk, would make Lyndon LaRouche blush.

Actually what’s cited here appears to be in keeping with past Larouchian literature.  Nothing makes anyone with the org blush.

Foreign Policy: “Trump is being attacked, the memo says, because he represents ‘an existential threat to cultural Marxist memes that dominate the prevailing cultural narrative.’ Those threatened by Trump include “deep state” actors, globalists, bankers, Islamists, and establishment Republicans.”

More: “Though not called out by name, [National Security Adviser] McMaster was among those described in the document as working against Trump, according to a source with firsthand knowledge of the memo and the events. Higgins, the author, is widely regarded as a Flynn loyalist who dislikes McMaster and his team.”

And here’s the thing… That Andrew Breivicks (2011 Norwegian terrorist) had a plagiarized essay of a Larouchie penned article decrying “Cultural Marxism”.  It is important to note that the author who wrote it has expressed his horrors at the appropriation.

VIII.  THE SUMMER POST OFFICE TOUR!  FLOODING THE ZONE!

Greenwich, and we’re TRUMPIER THAN TRUMP, CHUMPS.  3 for Larouche / Trump, or Trump / Larouche.

Outside Town Hall Tuesday morning, Greenwich resident Patrick Servidio and two other members of the conservative LaRouche Political Action Committee handed out literature stating that President Donald Trump’s alleged connection with Russia during the presidential election was a British-directed hoax aimed at moving the U.S. to war with Russia and Middle Eastern countries.

“We’re out here to defend President Trump and the American system,” said Servidio. “We are in a very dangerous situation, and it’s a coup against the President of the United States. And this has never happened before in the history of America, but this is all British controlled.”

A registered Republican, Servidio has lived in Greenwich for 74 years.

Circleville

Closer to the convention center, the controversial Lyndon LaRouche movement passed out flyers to Trump supporters waiting in line. The anti-capitalist, pro-labor group sees a friend in Trump, who has said he would consider reviving the Glass-Steagall Act to break up banks and not go to war for the sake of nation building.

“We did everything we could to defeat Hillary,” said Joe Billington, a Cleveland native who worked on LaRouche’s eight presidential campaigns, each a long shot. On second thought, Billington thought, Trump’s hiring of a former hedge fund manager from Wall Street to run the U.S. Treasury “is concerning.”

Don’t say?

Shopping plazas!

Myles Robinson, of the Massachusetts-based regional office of the LaRouche Pac Movement, brought his message to Richmond on Friday. With a full display of information and graphics which explain the LaRouche cause, he stood on the sidewalk of the Chariho Shopping Plaza on Main Street, explaining the Movement’s concerns to those who pulled over.

We’re building a movement to protect President Trump from the FBI coup attempt, and potential assassination,” he said. “The problems are not being caused by Democrats,” he went on. “It’s a much bigger issue.”

Hey da.  About that Glass Steagall… it appears to mean as much for Trump as it does for Larouche, so maybe this isn’t such a reach after all?

“Defend Trump from the Coup!” “Donald Can’t Do It Alone.” “Trump Wants Peace: How About You?” “China, Russia and the United States Can End War.” “Build the World Landbridge!”

Signs and slogans proclaim the pro-Trump, anti-establishment stance of two men who set up a desk in the grass in front of the Ridgefield Post Office parking lot on Thursday, July 20, talking politics to whoever would stop to listen.

“We’re trying to protect Trump from the coup, and we’re calling for Glass-Steagall,” said John Scialdone of Hackensack, N.J.

BURN!!!  YIMBYs are a compelling man-bites-dog story for lazy reporters who treat San Francisco as metaphor and, as one local reporter told me, “Trauss is a beguiling figure to cover because she doesn’t seem reined in by the bounds of common decency.” She’s like followers of Bob Avakian or Lyndon LaRouche at a rally hawking sectarian newspapers.

Iran tv on sanctionsNorth Korea “debate” with William Jones and William Overholt.

The Altramura Center for the Arts has a Schiller Institute relaying of Verdi.

Blast from the past.

 

Caulkins also recalled the 1980s battle with the Lyndon LaRouche organization. Then a perennial presidential candidate, LaRouche spurred controversy when he moved his campaign headquarters and fundraising operations to South King Street in 1983.
The friction between the organization and other businesses came to a head when fraud charges were brought against it because of allegations that individuals, especially the elderly, were being scammed. LaRouche was convicted of mail fraud and conspiracy and sentenced to 15 years in federal prison. He was released in 1994.
As one of the community critics of LaRouche and his associations, Caulkins came under threats during the period.
“That was a fun thing,” Caulkins said, recalling that people would drop off donations at the store to support him amid threats of litigation. It was also scary. He said LaRouche associates would come into the store, lay guns on the counter, and tell the clerks, “You tell Stanley Caulkins—he’s next.”

 

new silky new road

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

I.  We see the Larouche org making hay about the various mechanitions of the “Deep State” against the President Trump.  Hailing recent comments deriding the “coup” from Robert Parry, Dennis Kucinich, and Daniel McCarthy — and here we must note McCarthy’s warning, which is favorably quoted by Team Larouche.

“If [Trump] is impeached and removed on anything but the most ironclad and universally accepted grounds, the country will experience a great paroxysm, not of violence, one hopes, but a much more radical rejection of the political establishment in both parties, and of the beyond-partisan deep state, than anything we have seen before. The crisis of legitimacy that led to Trump’s election in the first place will only get worse. The brutal truth is that an impeachment is already underway—not of the President, but of Washington’s entire political elite.”

Yes.  This from the “Impeach Cheney First” and the group that — right until the last days of the “Existential Threat” that was the Obama Presidency demanded his ouster to Save the Universe.

Elsewhere we see the praising of the ironclad universally mocked Nixonian comments of Trump — parsed with this editorial commentary —

“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately — (laughter) — especially by the media. No politician in history — and I say this with great surety — has been treated worse or more unfairly. [Except Lyndon LaRouche—ed.] You can’t let them get you down. You can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams. (Applause.) I guess that’s why I — thank you. I guess that’s why we won.
“Adversity makes you stronger. Don’t give in. Don’t back down. And never stop doing what you know is right. Nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever came easy. And the more righteous your right, the more opposition that you will face.”
Nixonian or Larouchian?

Interestingly, the obsession of Larouche is Robert Mueller’s past prosecutorial role with Larouche in the big Trials of the 1980s.  And so Trump and Larouche are now joined at the hip — the “Get Larouche Task Force” up and running to “Get Trump”.

Even though…

Lyndon LaRouche today warned that there is a British-run coup d’état in process against the Trump Administration in the United States, which threatens to parlay the stupid and dangerous April 6 air strike against Syria, into a full-fledged thermonuclear confrontation with Russia and China.
It’s the British bastards who duped President Trump into attacking Syria, with their lies and false intelligence, LaRouche charged.

See.  When Trump does wrong.  It’s the British who did it.  Got that?

So where are the Larouchies?, asks the Chicago Tribune:
Anybody else notice that the Larouchies who were out on street corners for the last eight years braying for Obama to be impeached are suddenly nowhere to be seen? Wonder why that is, certainly not because they’re a gaggle of bigots.
Or it might have something to do with Kinkos costing a bit more after merging with Fed Ex.

II.  The Larouchies are right now moving on full speed trumpeting up the “New Silk Road” project.  Speculators are speculating, and noting increased mention of Lyndon Larouche in past tense terminology, that this suggests a pivot toward Helga Zepp Larouche.
I ponder whatever happened to Glass Steagall, and why the movement hasn’t abandoned Trump due to his abandoning of the Glass Steagall.  And if they don’t care so much about Glass Steagall, how can anyone trust them to stick to a New Silk Road?
Note:  Big enough to get into the house organ for the John Birch Society.

III.  Amusing footnote in the creation of Bull Durham.

For Nuke LaLoosh’s name, Shelton had to travel to Columbia, South Carolina, where he was preparing one evening to dine at the Radisson Hotel. As he sat down for a cocktail, the waiter greeted him.
“Hello, sir, my name is Ebby Calvin LaRouche, and I’ll be your server tonight,” the waiter said, “but you can just call me ‘Nuke.’ ”
Shelton jotted the name down on a napkin, wondering whether “Nuke” was spelled like a nuclear meltdown or like the nickname “Newk,” as in the former Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher Don Newcombe.He went with the former, then altered the last name because he did not want it associated with the radical leftwing LaRouche Movement authored in the 1970s and 1980s by Lyndon LaRouche.
Shelton worried ever after that the waiter would one day demandroyalty fees from the movie for using his name as Robbins’ character. He never got the call.

IV.  Interesting terminology to parse.
Senior American Political Expert Michael Billington.

In a recent interview with the far-right LaRouche PAC, Black also suggests a recent chemical weapons attack in Syria — carried out by Syrian government forces, according to eyewitnesses — was likely a “false flag.”
V.   Historical Legacies Noted.
Recalling the Obama Hitler era posters of yore
 Country Music sings more about Pot than even Rap.  Lyndon LaRouche’s war on drugs wanted to punish anyone playing or selling rock and roll, but country artists have gotten off scot free.
VI.  This is funny.
 Discussing the French national election.  They don’t know that they’re talking about Cheminade, and who Cheminade is…

‘one dark horse even claiming that the Queen of England was involved in drug smuggling. ‘
You’re probably too young to remember, but for many years this was Lyndon Larouche’s signature conspiracy theory.
Ha! I do remember that, and I was talking about Lyndon Larouche a couple of weeks ago with a friend of mine (who is a music professor) because I remembered something about Larouche wanting the musical standard to be changed from middle C = 440 Hz to A = 256 Hz. Something to do with 256 being 2^8 and that somehow being in tune with the universe. It almost makes sense if you ignore that Hz is cycles per second, and a second is a unit people agreed on to measure time by the same standard. It doesn’t have any significant value derived from the universe.

I really can’t imagine why you would apply a binary structure to music anyway, it doesn’t make sense on a conceptual level.

 As this suggests, politicians are not merely engaged in prestige games, but have more imperial ambitions at stake. The maverick French presidential candidate Jacques Cheminade has openly expressed a desire to build a settlement on Mars, calling it the “promised land”.

By strictly leveling the playing field, the temps de parole rule certainly boosts the visibility of smaller contenders polling below five percent – including for Jacques Cheminade, who wants to colonise Mars, and Jean Lassalle, a centrist who has campaigned around France on foot.
However, for years broadcasters have blasted the strict equality rule as being incredibly difficult to enforce in practice. They said it actually risked discouraging them from hosting political shows.

Communist firebrand Nathalie Arthaud vowed to protect French workers from being “strangled by the capitalist system”, while anti-EU nationalists such as Francois Asselineau, Nicolas DuPont-Aignan and Jacques Cheminade enjoyed rare airtime.

And then there’s Jacques Cheminade (0.5 per cent), who has been running since 1995 and is planning to colonise Mars.

Three candidates — Philippe Poutou of the New Anticapitalist Party, Jacques Cheminade of Solidarity and Progress, and the unaffiliated centrist representative Jean Lassalle were qualified at the last minute and will join the list of the first eight candidates that have each collected a minimum 500 signatures necessary to run.

Jacques Cheminade, 75: Veteran former civil servant who received 0.25 percent of the vote in the 2012 presidential election.

Any of these candidates could pull ahead in race. It seems Trump’s win as the U.S. President has opened the door of opportunity for chaos and upheaval around the presidential election in France.

Jacques Cheminade and Philippe Poutou both of small far-left parties

I.  Remember him?  Another term is beginning to crop up — one I’m reluctant to utter. It makes me think back to a lone protester, waving a nine-foot-long banner on a Palmer street corner during the Obama years. A Lyndon La Rouche, fan he proudly advertised that affiliation along with his bigger message. The man was clearly unbalanced and I don’t want to be associated with him. Yet there are people in Washington D.C. making similar noises now. What was the term?
He’s referring to famed Alaska protester Sidney Hill.  Who now has his own twitter page, where you can follow the basic Larouche line.  He gained renown for a lawsuit against him — an incident that ended with his acquital.  A punk rock song was inspired by his regular protests (“Wasting Your Life for La La La Larouche”, alas no longer on youtube).

II.  The Larouchies Take to CPAC!
Just outside of the Potomac Ballroom where Bossie spoke, I was greeted by a man handing out flyers on behalf of the Larouche Political Action Committee, an organization claiming to know the truth about a grand conspiracy involving a new “imperial order” and George Soros. “We need to take down Mr. Soros!” Yelled the man with the papers. Of course, I grabbed one, though making heads or tails of the content of said paper was a less certain outcome.

III.  KICKING IT IN BOSTON!
The ex has been out,trying to get signatures…usually in front of grocery stores,occasionally South Station in Boston. They manage to collect a few,no more than single digits,so the “thousands of signatures” surely are not coming from the Boston office.
Just this weekend,they were told to,and I quote, “go back to Russia” and Rachel was called a communist to her face. Apparently,their sign,saying” Russia is not the enemy” is not going over well here.
I’m waiting for the inevitable punch in the face from some disgruntled T rider,as they like to work the MBTA train stations,only to be told my T workers to that they’re not allowed to solicit on T property and stop bothering riders.

KICKING IT IN LA!
LaRouche movementites on Jefferson, something I didn’t think I’d see in 2017

IV.  History:  Kesha Rogers’s campaign now as Texas political loreFrom the fertile minds at Lyndon LaRouche and Co., this is a campaign video from Kesha Roger’s 2012 race for Congress from a Houston district, where she secured the Democratic nomination. This year, she is in the runoff for the Democratic Party’s nomination for U.S. Senate, even though she supports the impeachment of President Obama. (Rogers billboards pointing that out went up in Dallas, Houston and San Antonio this week.)

V.  WHO IS Joseph Ford Catto?  He appraised Lyndon Larouche round about 2013 for “Washington Times Community Pages” (Whatever that is).  Now, he’s interviewed Lyndon Larouche for “San Francisco Review of Books“.  Funny thing about the San Francisco Review of Books, the wikipedia page places the publication entirely in the past tense.  Funnier thing, the new San Francisco Review of Books is composed entirely of articles by Joseph Catto.

VI.  All’s well that ends well for Webster Tarpley.  Melania Trump, having been rebuffed in her bid against the Daily Mail, goes ahead and cuts out the lesser of the two parties she was suing.  And now Webster Tarpley can go back to — um — extolling the virtues of the Obama Administration, upholding the Affordable Care Act and thus leading to his old Alex Jonesian fan base to mockery — it’s safe to suggest that his appearances on Russia TV are over?
So after being a leading voice against Obama’s election you are now cheerleading his most fascistic boondoggle?!?
Tarpley is a genius on Venetian history, but cannot see progressive left are the new Venetians, protecting the deep state
Well, the Resistance is all about the World Historical Event.

VII.  The Larouchies have some work cut out for themselves, as they steer in their love of Trump well selling American government building of Russiaphobic paranoia to Russia State TV.  (As well, for Iranian TV, sticking to the basic liberal / left line on military spending and its repercussions globally, as against the current Trump Administration typical right-wing conservative tact of increasing military spending).

And good luck waiting for this one. (Trump’s policies inflamed negative public opinion: Analyst)
Jones further argued that the extreme measures Trump has taken on immigration “has fed into this campaign which has been fomented against him.”
Therefore, he said, Trump should learn to be a little bit more “tactful,” asserting that he really made a “wrong decision” on the immigration issue. 

VIII.  Jacques Cheminade.  Making waves (or his usual meandering to last place) as he runs for President of France in the new “Nationalist” era.  The larouchian party is thus getting referenced as “eurosceptic Solidarity et Progres party“.

IX.  Dan Schmitt. Glass Steagall. For the Farmers.  Not on board the Trump Train yet, even as the Larouche Movement he’s pledged to goes full force.
Andy Dolson sees Trump following Larouche’s blue-print against Soros-British-Empire… except for the Treasury pick.  Which you’d think would be, you know, huge.
On Glass Steagall.  Is it possible that this is going nowhere in the Trump Administration?  (The Executive Intelligence Review press release, after moving through a positive appraisal of a smudging answer they wouldn’t have accepted by the previous occupant, then goes on to praise the skype “journalists” that the Trump Press conference has been taking.)

 X.  Still the Enemy.
Barack Obama, after eight years of mass killing with drones and genocidal “regime change” wars, has refused to retire from his treasonous role, but is now leading an insurrection against the democratically elected President who solidly defeated his clone, Hillary Clinton, in the November election.
“Obama is actually highly vulnerable,” Lyndon LaRouche noted today. “He has exposed himself as a traitor to the United States.”
He goes on to finger George Soros as well.

The question is… Can he still be impeached?  Will an “Impeach Obama” call still bring in some fund-raising and attention?

I sense the note of Poetry in what the President was doing“…

In a discussion on Trump’s proported gaffe on Frederick Douglass, and in arguing there was no gaffe — the works of Douglass continues to grow and we can refer to Douglass in the press tense here at (ahem) “Black History Week”. Then we get to a brutal attack of The Elements of Style, Strunk and White.  (Strunk and White?  STUNK and White is more like it, amiright larouchies?)

XI. Footnotey If you check Ray’s footnotes, you’ll find that the main source for the volcano theory is Rogelio Maduro, the associate editor of 21st Century Science & Technology, a magazine published by the Lyndon LaRouche network. Maduro is evidently not part of the “agenda-oriented scientific community”–even though he does have a bachelor’s degree in geology.
NB makes note of the pee pee tape

XII.  So the question.   First Step in LaRouche Exoneration?  Is this the Lyndon Larouche Power Hour?
Now that Donald Trump is President of the United States, perhaps Lyndon LaRouche will be allowed to emerge from forced exile, as his enemies have now been outed and routed, and he should take his rightful place amongst one of America’s greatest heroes, thinkers, philosophers, writers, lovers of humanity and the United States of America.
Or just the Alex Jones Power Hour (mocked as he was on Saturday Night Live.)

Poor Lyndon will not live long enough to get his due. Even in death, his powerful enemies will continue to smear his name. Hopefully though, his organization will grow and continue his legacy by sweeping the supranational oligarchy into the dustbin of history.

Won’t be mocked on Saturday Night Live…

XIII.  The Trump Bash

In addition to a live feed from Washington, DC, where Trump will take the oath of office on Friday shortly before noon eastern time, the audience in Moscow can expect at least two “presentations” — one about the “political philosophy” of the “triptych” (the art collective’s belief that Russian President Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump and far-right French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen will usher in a new world order), and another by Kirill Benediktov, a science-fiction writer with ties to the LaRouche movement. (Critics call that movement fascist or a political cult.) Benediktov recently wrote a book about Trump called “Black Swan,” where he reviews some of Trump’s past entrepreneurial escapades in Russia.

But… same… as … it … ever… was…

On Jan. 3, 2017, as the new 115th Congress convened in Washington, D.C., they were met by an organizing team from the LaRouche Political Action Committee. This team of political activists and volunteers walked the halls of Congress, buttonholed Senators and Congressmen, and took part in numerous meetings, whose primary focus centered on the emergency economic measures which must be taken to save the nation.

 

everything’s looking milhouse

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017

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.

The Larouche Movement in the Age of Trump

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

An axis point of crony capitalism, demagoguery, and crass tabloid culture, the new Presidential administration takes the White House to the new-founded accommodation of the political party he over-took and may just be a natural extension of anyways, and the cheers of the “deplorable” group of a new Old Right political faction.

The gray area where Conspiracy Analysis meets Conspiracy Theory, and your Webster Tarpley wanted to bother with his Trump book — to sit aside the damned Poppa Bush, Obama, and Romney books — after slipping around the stupid “Wife is a literal whore” line to get to the 2016 election — A subterranean plot within the FBI to force James Comey’s hand in “jumping the gun” and announcing his scheduled probe for what turned out and what was always likely duplicate materials already decided on Anthony Wiener’s computer to sway the last votes long as the Russian Government  sponsored wave upon wave of propaganda disinformation and a politically inconvenient hacked email dumping from the Hillary Clinton campaign showing her duplicitous on free trade, the campaign not enthralled with the Catholic Church, and a real aversion to Dr. Who.

The Larouche connection?  Here, Dennis King posits a reformulation / new version / variation of the old “Intellectual author of the 9/11 Truth Movement” line for much of the conspiratorial mongering backing the Donald Trump campaign.

Many people who want to bring back Glass-Steagall have no truck with LaRouche (Bernie Sanders, for instance). However, is Trump getting LaRouchian ideas from third parties? His tweets have shown that he is influenced by social media of the Alt-Right, which strongly supported his candidacy, and he has appointed the most important single figure in the Alt-Right, former Breitbart CEO Stephen K. Bannon, as his Senior White House adviser. It thus would be difficult for Trump to avoid a certain amount of indirect influence from the LaRouchians, since (a) they are the most prolific and imaginative producers of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories in the history of the U.S. far right, and (b) their tropes and memes have become common currency in the world of conspiracism and bigotry as a result of their aggressive courting of far right activists that began in the mid-1970s and continued for decades, often in venues ignored by the media. I say this even knowing the hostility of so much of today’s Alt-Right to LaRouche, who has been called, among other things, a “verminous space bat.”

Two popular conspiracy-oriented talk show hosts who strongly backed Trump (one of them, Alex Jones, was a source for some of Trump’s more outlandish claims–see below) also have supported LaRouche on a number of issues. I would not be surprised if, at some point, we find out that LaRouche’s internet media network did directly influence Trump’s views on NATO, Vladimir Putin, the illegitimacy of the Obama presidency, and the existence of a conspiratorial Jewish elite.

Not to be out-done, Nick Benton throws in his piece on the left / right dichotomy, the “alt right” and ends with a reference to Larouche as a “darling of the the alt-right radio talk show circuit”.  Hard to say — he made a few appearances on Alex Jones.  Jeff Rense, maybe?

It was in the 1970s, during the era of “detente” when the Nixon administration and its Soviet counterparts secretly carved up tasks for defusing the serious civil rights, anti-war and pro-labor social ferment in the U.S., a very stupid move on the U.S.’s part.
The CIA and FBI handled the expansion of the “sex, drugs and rock and roll” counterculture, and the KGB was given license to manipulate the splinter left.
The U.S. saw the KGB plan to turn the left into the right in its interest. Anarcho-hedonists siphoned off political energy with the lure of excessive sexual freedom and religious cults took their share from emotionally weakened youth who’d been cut adrift from their families by their activism.
The KGB and its East German counterpart, the Stasi, zoned in on leftist pro-socialist political groups, including the old Communist Party, U.S.A., an array of Trotskyites and Maoists and remnants of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). As a writer for the Berkeley Barb at the time, I had a front seat witnessing a lot of this.

And then on to Operation Mop-Up, and the left wing alignment to the right wing.  See too, for that matter, the Revolutionary Communist Party on the Boston busing controversy.  (Page 7.  Love the Communists at Marxists.org! — which I mostly know about from reading this book.)

Regarding the antics of Alex Jones and his listenership / following — during the Bush Administration, it would be composed of any number of peoples who’d consider themselves of the “left” — going on, as he did about the “Neo-cons” and George W Bush and the conspiratorial reality of 9/11.  This position could hold through a lot of the Obama Administration, but falls apart when Alex Jones embraces Donald Trump.   [Apparently not to everyone.] (Arguably paying heed to someone who paid attention to him once, and also having the fervent of ).  It is laughable — the name prisonplanet — in endorsing the candidate whose rise to power ensues a rise in prison incarceration — closer to the paranoid fantasy he’s had since the Clinton Administration of building concentration camps in the wild mid-section of America.

But where are we with Larouche now?  Curious to see during the campaign, a member floated by the factnet message board to sell the “Stop the Fascist Trump” line — replete with new Larouche PAC graphics — more confounding than the Obama with Hitler mustache but quite garishly colored.  Nothing more was heard of this campaign.  Was this something to the equivalent of cadres of the old Communist Party trying to divine the Bolshevik Soviet line (such as, oh, anticipating what was happening with the Stalin – Hitler Pact), and so jumping ahead of themselves before the line was revealed to be something else?
They appear to have anticipated the election of Hillary Clinton, and treaded accordingly — going onto Russia TV on election eve with a “pox on both their houses” attitude — and now?

A high-ranking Russian official has said there is a great deal of similarity between US President-elect Donald Trump’s foreign policy approach and that of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, expressing hope that the strained relations between Moscow and Washington would improve.
Mike Billington, a member of the Executive Intelligence Review, said in a Friday interview with Press TV that the US-Russia ties will undoubtedly improve under a Trump presidency, because he has recognized that relations with Moscow are “crucial” for “the future of mankind.”
Billington added that the American people are very united on fundamental issues such as their absolute disgust with perpetual warfare and the threat of a thermonuclear war with Russia.
The analyst further argued that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was defeated in the election because she continued to demonize Russia in her campaign.

AND:  Not just of bilateral, but of global significance,” was the way EIR Founding Editor Lyndon LaRouche characterized the first telephone call with Putin and Trump.

For the moment.  Should the Larouche org wish to find some recruits for a new youth movement, there should be a “mass strike” atmosphere they can sell themselves as the fore-gatherers of Rosa Luxemberg for — unless they believe is best tied to align with right-wing formations like the Tea Party.

Webster Tarpley has always had a harder row to hoe.  Being fervently pro-Putin but then having to back the candidate of Russia’s choice which he has to campaign with the left-wing stance of fighting not just Trump’s demagoguery, not just his Fascism, but his Nazi-ism.  And now he has this tweet to offer to guide his future course.

Organic mass leaders let down by #Democrats are invited to contact the #TaxWallStParty to help create a meaningful programmatic opposition

It looks like we will have to look elsewhere for the Trump – Hitler.

For example, a Tea Party rally in San Francisco brings out large numbers of organized Lyndon LaRouche supporters, who carry with them reams of literature and well-rehearsed presentations. No one invited them, but in the American public square there is no way to prevent them from working the crowd. It’s their constitutional right. The public square in America, as Haaretz seems to have forgotten, belongs to everyone.
Moreover, because their message is the most extreme to be found, the media gravitate to the LaRouchies like flies to horse manure. On the evening news, it is the LaRouchies whose message is not only reported, but presented as characterizing the rally.

……..

History:

This public funding program would necessarily be open to any candidates who can meet its minimal requirements,” Von Spakovsky explains. “That includes fringe candidates and even felons. Case in point: The presidential funding program has bankrolled Lyndon LaRouche to the tune of millions of dollars – $ 1.5 million in 2008 alone.

And not to be outdone… When the Larouchies hit Kansas!

Presentations for the day covered numerous topics and issues relevant to independent cattle producers today. Jessica Laurin started off the day with an overview of the Veterinary Feed Directive, followed by an economic update by Bob Baker from the Executive Intelligence Review.
