Election 2018’s proxy fight is set up: Ron Paul versus Larouche

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018

Little Falls, New Jersey  Courtney Jones and Chris Sare…

Between the United States Post Office and the police station on Montclair Avenue in Little Falls, stood a sign that read “DEFEND TRUMP, STOP HERE” as two activists set up a stand displaying signs, and pamphlets alongside the town’s sidewalk encouraging pedestrians and drivers to pull over for further information on Thursday afternoon.

The Township of Little Falls has a Democratic mayor and a majority-Democrat council. Little Falls Democratic Organization Chairman Kevin Barry stated, “The Little Falls council went from a 100 percent Republican from a few years ago to a 100 percent Democratic with a Democratic mayor,” however, a small crowd gathered around the LaRouche PAC’s table Thursday to browse the group’s literature and discuss their views. “We’re going everywhere,” Sare added. “We often do post offices because they’re very public.”

I wonder, though… have they encountered this notorious anti-Trump group on their “Post Office Box” Tour?

Do you know what a Trump nomination, nay a Trump presidency, means? A massive global breakdown crisis. Nuclear war. Mass starvation. You will wish you listened.

President Trump will tear up the constitution, replacing it with the dirty playbook he learned from Roy Cohn. His ridiculous economic polities, which would put Paul Adolf Volker to shame, will lead to Weimar-style hyperinflation. You’ll be walking down the street with a wheelbarrow of greenbacks just to buy milk!

This weird anti-Trump organization even has competing signs to post on their competing table tops.  (Trump with a Hitler mustache!)

Comically, “Fight Fascism” argued on the irrelevancy of the discrepancy over old Federalist denigrating comments about FDR as opposed to the talisman worship of FDR which reached its fever pitch in the Bush era.  I suppose, if he’s still with Team Larouche, he’d be consistent in his inconsistency.

Donald Trump is literally Hitler. […] Have you ever heard of seen a video of Donald Trump that made you actually think? No!

ITEM NUMBER TWO:

In what may come as a surprise, or perhaps a wave of fear, to so-called political experts, Roger Stone—a long-time advisor to many Republican candidates and a friend of Donald Trump—endorsed Kesha Rogers on October 8. She is on the November 6 ballot as an Independent candidate for the 9th Congressional District in Texas against incumbent Democrat Al Green, a fanatic for the impeachment of the President.

All good and well, and we’ll wait for bated breath to see if he mentions it at, say — a South Florida Republican luncheon fundraising event.  Look — we have the “fake media” of the Washington Post listing Al Green in a story about uncontested races — and then there’s that situation in South Dakota where the Trump endorsed candidate is facing multiple attacks, one hitting him at his natural Trump loving constituency.

What will it take to have Roger Stone endorse Ron Wieczorek?

ITEM NUMBER THREE:

The org is touting the candidacy of Michigan US Senate candidate John James, apparently glomming onto his run against “partisanship” — a pretty standard political positioning — as aligning with their grand goal of defeating “geopolitics”.

Quick take-away at the end:

LaRouche PAC organizers present at the meeting found a wide-open response to their explanation of the global strategic stakes in the U.S. midterm elections.

As with the Martin O’Malley campaign, any goodwill to the candidate is not reciprocated in kind.

Unlike, it appears, Jeff Jones — who… I guess signed the Larouche pledge of pledges?  Don’t see that he’s running on “larouche!”, but the org did — more forthrightly than with the Senate candidate — give him their endorsement.  And we see The campaign continues…

Competing literature from his communist opponent.  (I assume the self described “socialist”, but certainly not of the “democratic socialist” variety, is who he’s referencing… and I suppose the Democratic legacy candidate is the supposed “socialist”.)

“But I met [Republican candidate] Jeff Jones while I was volunteering, and I felt I got to know him pretty well, and I thought, ‘This guy is a total idiot.’ So when I met you guys on campaign, I thought I had to come and hear from a third party candidate.”

ITEM NUMBER FOUR

Actually, here’s something interesting to watch in November.  Everyone remember Ron Paul?  Multiple presidential candidate and prolific pamphleteer his own self.  Well, in this 2018 mid-term, he has his own three candidates that he’s endorsed.

(1) Ryan Bundy for Nevada Governor.
(2) Chris McDaniel for Mississippi Senate
(3) Murray Sabrin for New Jersey Senate

A game we can play in November is to see how these three candidates do as against the three candidates slotted by the Larouche org (two members of the org and one signee), to see who has more juice — Ron Paul of the “Ron Paul Revolution” or Larouche of the “Larouche Slough-Fest”.

ITEM NUMBER FIVE

Actually… Sidney Hill of Alaska was running for Alaska’s at large bid.  WasWrite-in bid.  Suspended his campaign, apparently.
Who’s Sidney Hill?  Don’t you remember?

ITEM NUMBER SIX

Steve Bannon.  Not David Duke or Lyndon Larouche.  Noted.

ITEM NUMBER SEVEN

A blast from the past… circa 1986
Richard Black, area coordinator for ultra-conservative former Presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche, joined the panelists. He said the United States should invest $40 billion in laser beam technology.

Note that “Richard Nixon is a Chinese agent”, which in a previous era of the org I think would’ve been a bad thing.

There are two state legislators I’m stuck paying some attention to if I’m paying attention to the larouche org.  One is Richard Black of Virginia, whose relationship with the org is as a propped up Authority to be funneled through larouche media to Russian and foreign propaganda/news outlets to sell Putin‘s and other authoritarian government’s line…

(And to get identified incorrectly as a “US Senator”).

Curious.  It’s a different Richard Black than we see round about here (even if it’s the same Mike Billington) … correct?

The other figure of note, Kentucky state Senator Perry Clark.  (See the freepers discourse on him over here.)  Who is probably useless for the org now that he’s not seeking Obama’s impeachment.  And for that matter when last I checked in, he was seeking some marijuana decriminalization measure.  Still, it’d be interesting to see if Kesha Rogers can gnab his endorsement… which would be worth something, I… guess?  Richard Black’s is apparently worthwhile, even though it did nothing for Kelli Ward.

ITEM NUMBER EIGHT

Harley Schlanger tries to work his brand.  (The SGT Report… now on a different platform.)  Funny, as I bump about this… and a trashing of the Clinton camp as Coup leaders against the President.  Clinton, of course, in a previous era… a talisman of goodness.

ITEM NUMBER NINE:  A degree here, and a degree there, of separation, multiples, as the Larouche org and Rudy Giuliani begin hanging out with the same crowd.

Rudy Giuliani, the personal lawyer to President Donald Trump, is scheduled to speak at a conference in Armenia alongside one of the first Russian officials the U.S. sanctioned following Russia’s 2014 invasion of Ukraine.  […]

Glazyev, identified by the conference as an “adviser to the president of the Russian Federation,” has a distinct history with American far-right activists. As ThinkProgress reported earlier this year, Glazyev was once close with noted American anti-Semite Lyndon LaRouche, even going so far as to use LaRouche to translate one of Glazyev’s books into English. Glazyev was also one of the most vocal Russian officials opposing Ukrainian membership in the European Union, and reportedly helped organize protests across Ukraine in the aftermath of the 2013-14 EuroMaidan revolution.

 

Is the Ron Wieczorek campaign a covert plot to assist in electing Speaker Pelosi for the Impeachment Coup of the President?

Friday, September 21st, 2018

Actually not too bad a campaign… such as it is…  he’s out and about where it matters.  And rattling on his message to media outlets.  (Key question: when does he mention the name “larouche”?  Ever?)

And more impressively, Polling at 7 percent, depending on the poll.  Though it is worth mentioning that down-ticket races are hard to poll sometimes, and that partisan polling outfits for campaigns release the polls that are favorable to their clients to sway the narrative, still… there is something worth flagging about here.

The Bjorkman campaign shared data with the Journal that said when voters were given descriptions of the candidates, Johnson’s support shrank to 39 percent, compared to 37 percent for Bjorkman, 7 percent for independent Ron Wieczorek, 2 percent for Libertarian George Hendrickson, and 15 percent undecided.

No other results released by the Bjorkman or Johnson campaigns included any data for Wieczorek or Hendrickson. Wieczorek and Hendrickson were omitted from the Johnson poll.

Uh oh.  The Libertarian candidate is first on the ballot, which should really hamper Wieczorek’s vote tally.  (Or maybe the general tenor of anti-Trump Republicanism might give him a different voting base?)  But more importantly for the general “two party system”, what does it do for the Republican, the man who is on “Team Trump”?

Uh oh.  President Trump is making a campaign stop in South Dakota.

The president hopes to shore up support in races that could flip the U.S. House back to Democrats and other statewide races.
Republican Dusty Johnson is running against Democrat Tim Bjorkman, Libertarian George D. Hendrickson, and Independent Ron Wieczorek for South Dakota’s lone house seat. 

But… But… I’m confused here.  Ron Wieczorek is, with maybe a handful of policy arguments about “overhauling the entire Farm Bill“, working against the looming Impeachment and the big Coup attempts against the President.  Isn’t he?  As proferred by Executive Intelligence Review in plugging the campaigns of

Go back to Zeus and his punishment of Prometheus: any political figure or movement, which challenges the control of the oligarchy has the wrath of Zeus brought down upon them. Obviously, that’s what’s happening to Donald Trump. He’s there to challenge the policies of the modern-day Olympian gods, the British Empire. He’s against their policies of globalization, and perpetual war, and free trade. Even worse, Donald Trump laughs at them! That makes them very angry. *

Yet.  Here we have Donald Trump stumping for the Republican Party, and here we have a third party bid by the Larouchite Wieczorek cutting into the pro Trump bid, and maybe, just maybe allowing for the specter of … Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

Which poses the question: is Ron Wieczorek a secret DNC sleeper cell, working on behalf for a Democratic Majority in the Congress?  It’s worth asking… After all, with Wieczorek gnabbing a whole 6 percent of the vote on a Trump boosting platform — enough to possibly swing the election, and with this stated stakes:

On impeachment—don’t be a fool! Face the reality that a majority-Democratic House of Representatives will quickly vote to impeach this President on a strict party-line vote, regardless of whatever better judgment any of those Democratic Representatives may hold in private.

And viewing this as stated policy instead of a warning would reconcile us back to the original “Don’t Be a Chump for Trump” stance.

Meantime, the other Larouchie running… is having troubles getting attention.

As the sole female candidate running for Texas’ 9th Congressional District, one would think that independent Kesha Rogers would be mentioned by an organization that strives to define and enlarge the study and advancement of women in American politics.

Sometimes you just end up leaving out the non Ds and non Rs.

ITEM NUMBER Two:  Remembering 9/11

St. Anthony of Padua Church: The Schiller Institute NYC Chorus will perform works of Beethoven, Brahms and African-American spirituals in memory of those lost at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Tickets start at $10. 155 Sullivan St.

Funny thing in commemorating 9/11 with these guys… Looking at where the org stands now…

President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani stepped up the drive to crush the British coup operations against the President in his Monday guns-blazing interview on Fox News’ Sean Hannity show

Wait.  Rudy Giuliani.  Backing over to Larouche’s famous interview at the time of the attacks… Where does he stand in the whole “Mossad did it” idea?

At the very least, Giuliani appears to have been rehabilitated from the days they printed this:

Missing from the media portrait were: the Giuliani Family as Mafia; his unrelieved gangster-like assault on the poor as Mayor of New York City; his corruption-ruined communications system at the World Trade Center on 9/11; the obscenity of his milking that disaster: all this is waiting to be discovered by any casual inquirer, waiting to explode his candidacy. So the obvious question follows: What is the thinking of the powers who are sponsoring him?

ITEM NUMBER THREE: NB finishes his three part memoir shaking off the current political moment.

ITEM NUMBER FOUR

Marsha Freeman

 William Jones is not impressed by Trump’s economic record, but encouraged by...

Of course, none of this works without a central role by the United States. But this is precisely what President Trump is prepared to do—and what his two predecessors fiercely opposed. No wonder that former President Obama is the “field marshal” for the British in trying to bring down this U.S. Presidency. Or do you think it’s a coincidence that the leading Americans in this evil effort are all Obama’s former subordinates?

All this indicates what we must fight for in this election period. What we must fight against is the threatened impeachment of this President, which would destroy all these prospects, and doom us to chaos and near-term war, facing nuclear war down the road.

Which is why you have to vote for Ron Wieczorek instead of the Republican!

Matthew Ehret-Kump supporting Giuseppe Castiglione.

ITEM NUMBER FIVE
Noting from factnet what’s going on those youtube shows that flutter about.
The John Siegerson Show had an all time record low of 3 callers. John’s briefing was 20 minutes talking about a Manhattan concert that commemorated 9-11, then 30 minutes going over the presentations at the Schiller conference. He had nothing original to contribute, no wonder people tuned out.
      Even worse, Rush told JS to speed it up so they could take calls.  Then nothing but crickets. Finally, JS said the callers could talk about music as well to try to get something going.
In the panel 2 video, R(oger) S(tone) refers to Lyn as “Dr. Lyndon LaRouche”. Does he imagine Lyn has a Ph. D in something? He’s probably the most interesting speaker in the entire panel-he has interesting (not so nice) things to say about the two Bobs (Woodward, and Mueller)-and gets the most applause of all the speakers. I really wonder what RS’s angle is in being involved with the LaRouche organization, is he just using them for the speaking money? As a savy political operator he must realize that the LaRouche organization’s policy ideas have no chance of being enacted. I chuckled when he said that the first thing he reads in the morning are the EIR alerts.
 Last time Mr. Stone addressed the Schiller Institute, he was also plugging the website for his “legal defense fund.” If his motivation is for anything beyond money, I’d be curious why he waited so long to endorse the policies of “Dr. LaRouche.”
I only watched the Roger Stone section of the Schiller stuff. I thought it was most interesting when someone from India got up and went after Pakistan. Helga gave this school marm answer about playing nicely and visions of the future. Then a guy from Pakistan took the microphone and attacked the guy from India.
In other words, they completely ignored her homily.
She got nervous as well when Stone actually said critical things about China as well and she had to PR Bejing.
Again, surprisingly entertaining last 20 minutes.
One person on the Fireside Chat asked if Stone would be passing along the org’s materials to Trump, and the reply was along the lines of, “Well, sure, I guess, maybe, you know how these things go…”
Interesting thing swirling about with Roger Stone… and another strange synchronicity into Larouche…
ITEM NUMBER SIX:  Insult…
A movement that once took pride in its intellectual rigor and was graced by the ideas of Burke, Hayek, Weaver, Friedman, Kirk, and Buckley today views the feces-flinging by Breitbart and in a constellation of kook-right conspiracy sites that would make Lyndon LaRouche blush as highbrow conservative commentary.
 *  New theory:  Senator Cory “Spartacus” Booker is ghost writing for these guys.  Just a whimsical random thought, mused along the lines of Michael Moore’s idea that Trump (and an aid) was the writer of that “Internal Resistance” op ed.

new conspiranoid force looks a lot like the old ones

Monday, August 6th, 2018

So today we have QAnon bursting into public view — a realm of conspiracy who have discovered the “truth” “They” don’t want you to know from an insider within the factions and fissures of the Deep State.   Wikipedia, as it flushes out what it is to say about it:

There has been much speculation regarding the motive and the identity of the poster, with theories ranging from the poster being a military intelligence officer, to the posting campaign being an alternate reality game by Cicada 3301, to Donald Trump himself.

QAnon adherents believe that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, and other high-level officials are planning a coup while simultaneously involved as members of an international child sex trafficking ring. According to this idea, the Mueller investigation is actually a countercoup led by Donald Trump, who pretended to collude with Russia in order to hire Robert Mueller to secretly investigate the Democrats.

Other beliefs are that the Rothschild family are the leaders of a satanic cult, and that certain Hollywood stars are pedophiles. By interpreting the information fed to them by Q, QAnon adherents come to these conclusions.

Funny.  During the Obama Administration, the Larouchies were high on this one random blogger who had the same premise going, but never quite made the same waves QAnon currently are.  Ulsterman.  See here for something
The group decided to pretend to be ‘White House Insiders’ privy to all sorts of ‘secrets’. To tip their hand, to prove that it was a hoax they used the term “Ulsterman”.
The group assumed that persons with fully operational brains would grasp the fact that an Ulsterman is someone who lives in Northern Ireland, not someone who works in Washington D.C.
They misjudged the stupidity of the average Netizen.

From the Larouchie perspective, the origins of the term “Ulsterman” is a selling point and a tell… at war with the British… whether or not that’s intentional (and they don’t necessarily have to be selling to the Larouche Movement precisely).
A bit more here.

The echoing of some of QAnon’s fixation from past conspiratorial tropes the Larocuhies jammed themselves into — that whole “pedophile ring” — I was listening to a small dip of the Jim Bohannon show, an am talk radio mainstay for the past several decades, as I was passing by quickly on the radio dial.  What I hear is a woman caller, who charges in “But… George Bush and the CIA brought in call boys to the white house.”
The caller is immediately cut off, with Jim Bohannon calling out “What a load of Poppy cock!”  His guest goes on about having worked with “Poppa Bush” as an honest and decent person.
And it all goes out there, to be rehashed decades later.

Curious… Does this conspiratorial blogger
have second thoughts on sourcing
due to recent relations?

Wherefor the Zeitgeist  Movement, another seller of those “Secrets Known Only By the Elite”?  In cold storage?  Or just occasionally working the wikipedia article?
Okay, fine.  Zeitgeist marches on… though… looking up its “movement” in my city, it seems to be on empty.

NUMBER TWO:  Nick Benton looks at the Larouche Org’s current Trump support, moving back to a previous comment made in his review of the Scientology movie about purported CIA creation of the mass of 70s era cults.
Proceeds with the Russian — Larouche vortex point, dating it back to… hm… when the org was aimed against the Soviet threat.

Under the guise of the “detente” negotiated between Nixon and Brezhnev, as the brilliant investigative journalist Robert I. Friedman first documented in articles for the Village Voice and then his book, “Red Mafiya: How the Russian Mob Has Invaded America” (Little, Brown and Co., 2000), the compact involved the emigration of tens of thousands of Russians to the U.S. under the guise of human rights.
But those Brezhnev allowed to emigrate were the worst criminals and thugs of Russian cultural black markets. Once in the U.S., they organized into what became the Russian Mafia which, among other things, was available to the U.S. right wing for all sorts of mayhem against the civil rights movement.
Muscling in on the Italian mafia in New York, this is when Moscow’s thugs first met and started doing business with (including blackmailing) the hedonistic playboy Trump.
Nixon, Hoover and their masters let this ride through the 1970s to thoroughly rout the “left” and spin the inner cities and “counterculture” into self-destructive drug use and radical hedonism. In this context, the leftist LaRouche cult was redirected from within to roughly align with a burgeoning far right swollen by the politicization of Christian fundamentalist churches.
Puzzled politicians thought the LaRouche operation was the work of the CIA, a faction of which might have had a hand. Others, like the late Georgia Rep. Larry McDonald, insisted it was the KGB. In hindsight, he was the more accurate.

NUMBER THREE:  All right.  Here’s the current narrative.

Make no mistake. This is the greatest threat to the hegemony of the British financial empire in the entirety of its existence. What makes this fight winnable, is that in the combination of Russia, China and the United States we see a totality of power which has the means to see this reorientation of world affairs through. Alexander Hamilton and George Washington did not possess the power to dismantle the British Empire. Neither did Abraham Lincoln. FDR might have accomplished it, if he had lived, but even FDR lacked the strategic partners so crucial to such an undertaking. In the combination of Trump’s America, Putin’s Russia and Xi’s China, a power exists to remake the world.

Do the British possess the means to defeat this? No, if the people of the United States enter the battle in increasing numbers to defend the Trump Presidency and push this process forward. It is true that the British possess dangerous weapons. They control the major news media; they currently have hegemony within the intelligence community; and they can deploy the financial power of the City of London and Wall Street. But they are up against the Presidents of the three most powerful nations on the planet. They are losing, and they are becoming more desperate.

Trump still feels the need to suggest he’s being “tough” on Russia and thus Russia may be meddling to help the Democrats — whatever else you can say about his performances in NATO and summiting with Putin.  And we’ve had the promise of a good old fashioned trade war on our hands with China, with the suggestion from some Trump supporters that China relented, woo!.

And, the current historical narrative…  In 1988, my husband Lyndon LaRouche, having foresight that the Wall was coming down soon, proposed the soon-to-happen reunification of Germany with …

History posits differently.

No account of anti-Semites’ invective against ADL would be complete without mention of Lyndon LaRouche, the paranoid conspiracy theorist, perennial presidential candidate, and felon who is now in his 90s.

NUMBER FOUR:  Who is Who?

Texas Pride.  Brian Lantz, senior executive of the Houston-based Executive Intelligence Review of the Schiller Institute, said that Texas has unique western culture in the United States. “Today here we are finding about China’s west,” he said. “I think it’s a fun dialogue, each people learning about the other.”

Praising Xi:   William Jones, Washington Bureau chief of the U.S. publication Executive Intelligence Review, […]   “President Xi has placed a premium on the dialogue of cultures, emphasizing a greater spread of each other’s cultural achievements for the world to see. The idea of a community of shared destiny implies also the universality of human culture, although this may be expressed in different languages and in different art-forms,”…
Echoing Xi Thought.

NUMBER FIVE:

China’s Belt and Road initiative has found a new friend in the Schiller Institute

Helga Zepp-LaRouche, founder of the German-based think tank, said that one of the institute’s main ideas is that “peace and order in the world would only function if each nation would relate to the best cultural tradition of the others and vice versa.”
She argued that while countries want to protect their borders, the Western values of democracy and human rights are being forgotten in the refugee crisis as there has been “a deadening of compassion, and a lack of value for human life.”
And China’s government provides the model to fix all that.  GOTCHA!

But, just a little bit curious about the writer of such pieces — and see too here — Roalie Falla who — has so far just those two articles  and a twitter notice for… what now?  Global Times?

Although the Chinese-language version has been accused of having a strong pro-government slant,[5] and of attracting a strongly nationalistic readership,[9][10] the English-language version has been described by one of its editors as taking a less strident approach.[11] The English-language edition also contains approximately 20 “foreign experts”, who are involved with assigning stories and copyediting, “as long as the coverage is not about politics”.[12]

NUMBER SIX:

Robert Hockett of Pierre, South Dakota stumps for Ron Wieczorek — to the Occupy battle line against the 1 percent, and the names of Lincoln, FDR, and JFK.
Who is “I’m a Democrat in the tradition of Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy, and a Republican in the tradition of Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Garfield and William McKinley,” he told the Press & Dakotan Monday.
Andrew Garfield?
Wieczorek, who is a farmer and former implement dealer, ran for statewide office in the 1990s as a Democrat. Besides being a Larouche supporter, he says he’s a John Kennedy-Franklin Roosevelt Democrat and an Abraham Lincoln-Dwight Eisenhower Republican.
Just naming as many as you can think of, I suppose.
It’s an odd attempt to feed into the Trump narrative the Larouche narrative.  Makes for a rough fit, but I’m sure some Trump supporters will miss the line — Them, I guess.
His general election best is 3.54%.  We’ll see if he can top that.

Kesha Rogers runs against the ghost — and successes of– her previous campaigns, which get citations as “embarrassing to the party” primary outcomes in reference to more current “embarrassing to the party” primary outcomes.   (We’ll see if she retains the footnote traction of her 1986 Illinois upset brethren, who pop up in discourse like this and this even though Kesha Rogers provides a more recent example.) Otherwise, she’s cited as an also-run, even in features on other also-run message based campaigns for the same office.

Michael Hodgkiss is still edged away by his competitor Rocky De La Fuente, who has the clever strategy of running for a bunch of races across the state at once — and in perenial candidate land, we see GoodSpaceGuy is still at it, running on the Larouchian “colonize space” platform, but without the Larouche endorsement.  Of course, then again, Hodgkiss has the fuller Larouche platform and he’s not getting any endorsement.  Not good at supporting their first time candidates?

Australian media sometimes just drops the candidate in their round up.  Labor will contest the seat with candidates from the Animal Justice Party, Liberal Democrats, Sustainable Australia, the Australian Mental Health Party, Australian People’s Party, the Greens, Science Party, Australian Christians, Australian Liberty Alliance, Citizens Electoral Council, and four independents.

NUMBER SEVEN:  The colorful who’s who gallery of Manafort’s current location.

“The professionals at the Alexandria Detention Center are very familiar with housing high-profile defendants including foreign and domestic terrorists, spies and traitors,” he wrote in an order released Wednesday. “All these defendants were housed safely in Alexandria pending their respective trials and defendant’s experience at the Alexandria Detention Center will presumably be no different.”
Among those spies was FBI agent turned Soviet mole Robert Hanssen. He was bumped to a smaller cell after trial to make way for Zacarias Moussaoui, the only person tried in U.S. court for involvement in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
CIA spies Aldrich Ames and Harold James Nicholson were also held in Alexandria. So was New York Times reporter Judith Miller when she refused to cooperate with prosecutors in a leak investigation. United Way of America chief William Aramony and extremist politician Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr. both faced fraud charges while incarcerated in the jail.

NUMBER EIGHT:

Dateline Jersey
Singers from the Schiller Institute New York City Chorus sang renditions of “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “Battle Cry of Freedom,” “The Star Spangled Banner,” and “Chester,” a hymn sung during the American Revolutionary War.
Carving a cultural niche for community events, I suppose.

Dateline New Jersey.  Outside a mall with the current
CHINA — USA — RUSSIA UNITED material.  And noted by the media as … Right wing!

Dateline Greenwich
A sextagenarian couple, Judy and Donald Clark, manned the stand, covered in packets and magazines from the LaRouche PAC. The Clarks, no strangers to Greenwich sidewalk politics, were previewing a meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the St. Lawrence Society. The couple previously came to Greenwich in March and last year.
[…][wearing a “MAGA Hat]  “Just remember, this is the year of the Donald!”

NUMBER NINE:  EIR article cited.

Today, the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine (PSPU), headed by internationally prominent economist Dr. Natalia Vitrenko, won their appeal…

 

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

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
