Updates Galore

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Won’t be mocked on Saturday Night Live…

XIII.  The Trump Bash

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

But… same… as … it … ever… was…

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

 

everything’s looking milhouse

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Or, to put it another way

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

And to Rachel Maddow.

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

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

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

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

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

The Larouche Movement in the Age of Trump

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

……..

History:

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

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

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

two choices for President.

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Apparently, in-house at least Larouche is a write-in candidate for president.

American citizens should write in LaRouche’s name at the presidential ballot box to stand for the re-adoption of Alexander Hamilton’s economic principles, as LaRouche has reclarified them.
“I’m writing in LaRouche and Alexander Hamilton, let’s get the nation to elect the right principles” will cut through the dread with which Americans are questioning each other about the approach of Election Day. The only option for survival of the United States and the world economy, is offered by Hamilton’s principles as clarified by LaRouche’s Four Laws. Decide the future.

But throw him out.  You don’t vote for corpses — do you?  (Maybe Ron Wieczorek does?)

So, for those interested there is one Larouchie running for President — Christopher Earl Strunk.  On the ballot anywhere?  Not that I can tell.  But he filed wit the FEC, so that’s worth something!

Whom he?  He head the “Natural Born Citizen” party, which relates to the great “Obama Birther” controversy — an issue which I would think would now be as dead to the conspiratorial die-hards as the birther issue surrounding Chester Arthur — but who knows?

And on the eve of election… Don’t Forget to vote.
But if you do not, we will get, as president of the United States, Donald J. Trump … worse than Nixon, worse than George Bush, worse than any candidate that I can remember since I cast my first vote in 1952. I consider him even more dangerous than George Wallace, Lester Maddox and Lyndon LaRouche. If you don’t know them, “Google”!
Nah.  The choice is between Lyndon Larouche and protege Christopher Earl Strunk!

II.  Hm.

It is evident from Beijing’s characterization of the South China Sea dispute that it does not think the Philippines is capable of acting in its own diplomatic capacity. In one editorial published (link in Chinese) by state news agency Xinhua in May, Manila is said to be simply acting out a script that is “directed” by the US, with other countries including Japan acting as “cheerleaders” in the background. Chinese state media also rolled out a “US expert” from from the little-known “Executive Intelligence Review” to bolster its argument that the Philippines is merely America’s pawn.

III.  Plotting the post election gyration.

Lyndon LaRouche today emphasized that the carefully orchestrated campaign against Trump over his perversions will not succeed in damping the popular rage against Obama and Hillary.

So.  They’ll make their pitch to Trump voters.

Commenting both on the war hysteria and on the thorough breakdown of Obamacare, with millions of people being forced to pay 50-70% higher premiums for less care, he noted tha these are adding to the rage in the population against the killer Obama and his asset Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton is still suborbinate to Obama?  Wait.  Apparently.

Later, after Obama was elected President, when he offered Hillary the position of Secretary of State, Lyndon LaRouche knew immediately that this was a poisoned chalice, and warned Hillary not to accept it. But she was misled by her own ambition.
Hillary had lied to herself that she would be able to influence Obama for the better, as she conceived the better. Instead, she proved the bitter truth of LaRouche’s forecast. Over the first two years of Obama’s first term, Hillary Clinton degenerated into permanent hysteria out of sheer physical terror of Obama. She became nothing more than Obama’s brainless zombie—as she still is to this day.

Speaking to on the phone, I’m sure.

“Our job is to round up the necessary forces to search for a peaceful solution to Obama’s drive for war on Russia. If he starts a general war, it is doom. Get the people with guts, in the government and out, to shut down Obama, to get him out, now. Do they want peace? Shut him down.”

News flash, as you pursue an Impeachment brief in the lame duck phase:  Obama will be “out” in January.  (Really?  How do you publish this as a cover at this stage in the game?)

IV.  For the second straight year…  Bob Baker attends the “Kansas Cattlemen’s Association” — and, oh yes, there it is … under contributors “Executive Intelligence Review”.

 V.  He saw it coming.
“It was Mike who spotted the LaRouchies before Adlai Stevenson and the Democrats did in 1986. It was Mike who predicted David Duke was rising in voter approval in a run for Congress years ago. And it was Mike who saw the tribal power of social media a long time before the rest of the so-called political geniuses figured it out,” Marin said.
His knack for polls and political expertise even got his foot a bit into the entertainment world via another Joliet native, longtime “Saturday Night Live” writer Jim Downey, known for his memorable political satire during elections.
The two collaborated on political skits — Mr. McKeon providing analysis and expertise that Downey in turn used in his writing.And So… RIP.
VI.  Who the Hell did this thing?
A giant banner emblazoned with an image of Russian President Vladimir Putin and the word “peacemaker” was draped from the Manhattan Bridge in New York City on Thursday, and police said they are trying to find out who hung it there.
While you can look over toward a possible political provocation by organizations associated with Webster Tarpley (who has a history of protesting for Putin) or Lyndon Larouche (who continue their work on behalf of praising Putin), it appears in naught.
And from here… Jeff Steinberg sells Russian Media on the Democrats thinking of Dumping Hillary line.
VII.  An interesting piece in the New York Times, recalling the experience of growing up in the Socialist Workers Party.
Selling polemics of the sort
It’s written in something between the tone of the old LaRouchie free papers you could get on the street and the argot of 30s era party organs. From another vantage point it reads kind of like taking Trump tweet language and stringing it out into actual prose. As you can see, it’s all but unhinged me.
  Or of this sort.

In 2000, Lyndon LaRouche supporters were seen canvassing on college campuses in direct opposition to Democratic nominee Al Gore, and waged a campaign against President Obama in 2008. One sign read “The Pure Evil of Al Gore” and another had drawn an Adolf Hitler mustache on Obama’s picture. LaRouche’s “Worldwide LaRouche Youth Movement” has been described as a cult by some former members, and his total votes in the general election lagged behind at least seven other candidates in 2000.

Or this sort

Later that semester, the silver-maned McGurrin and I walked the wide path toward University Center. As we approached, he opined on politics and paused when we observed an escalating altercation. A hostile student and a young Lyndon LaRouche supporter exchanged words. Along the politico’s table hung signs that read “9/11 was an inside job.” Voices raised to shouts and suddenly the folding table seemed to explode and fall to the ground. The angered student stormed off leaving the young activist scrambling for pamphlets and other paraphernalia. No one was hurt, but this sort of tension lingered for some time.

A bid for the the World Socialists, or whoever you care to vote forSimilarly, you can send any message you like by not voting. You can say you are sitting out the election because both parties are neo-liberal, or because an election without Lyndon LaRouche is a sham, or because 9/11 was an inside job. The story you tell yourself about your political commitments are yours to construct.

VIII.  Apparently there was a LPAC video with an unusual number of views.  Here’s the only place that shows up when you type the link into google.

 IX.  Etc.
 Executive Intelligence Review and Stormfront in lieu of conspiracy theories about — from George Barna.  (International Jewish Bankers fundin Black Lives Matter.)
Who?  A “Never Trumper” of Kasich vintage who has donated money to Chuck Schumer and “socialist” Lyndon Larouche.
As Trump “finishes” the “Birther Controversy” … a comparison with Larouche.
 They are other parties out there, an example would be the Citizens Electoral Council, now they are really crazy and there is no way I would put One Nation behind the Citizens Electoral Council or the Communist Party.

Gretchen Small: This was … as my magazine Executive Intelligence Review warned, this was a coup, a judicial coup by financial rapists – I think that is the only word you could use –  The only one?

Wait am I at a performance of Requiem put on by an organization backed by Lyndon LaRouche?

Trump versus Daily Mail (and, oh yeah, also Tarpley)

Thursday, September 8th, 2016

On the hustlings of familiarity, the 2004 speculation on a Bush debate hump (sure) winds its way over to Hillary Clinton and an earpiece in 2016.  Throw out “false equivalency” charges against me for bringing the two together if you wish.

Chief amongst the conspiracy mongerers Right about now, Alex Jones, has been trumpeting up his associations with Donald Trump — familiar as it is to his big interview with Charlie Sheen where he insisted over and over that “we work out all the time”.  It is just enough for Hillary Clinton to mention his name in a speech.*

Webster Tarpley has, it appears, severed ties with Alex Jones fully right about here, and from my eyes his organization looks ever increasingly like the proto-Larouche org he once was a part of.  To be fair, he publishes his daily Memo (Briefing) (habitual as it may be with innuendo and fraudulent charges against on Ms. Trump).  His weekly “World Crisis Radio” is now joined by a daily show “American System Network” — with stated ties as the ideological post-script to Henry Clay.  He’s taken to campaigning for Hillary Clinton and calling Donald Trump a nazi, jumping to a role as a left-wing gate-keeper against the Green Party and coming full circle on an obvious “bi-partisan” / Bilderberg Group / two party duopoly, seemingly now jettisoning his long held opposition to President Barack Obama.
His political party — the Tax Wall Street Party, fielding a handful of candidates — has remained outside the Democratic Party… so far.  And I suppose Tarpley hasn’t jumped to the idea of becoming President just as yet, so even if some transition is made from Larouche’s 1976 Labor Party to a fielding nominees in Democratic primaries, we’re a ways off.

As for this

Melania Trump’s lawsuit describes both publishers’ conduct as “despicable, abhorrent, intentional, malicious, and oppressive.” But the legal battle will hinge on a specific descriptor her lawsuit used to describe Tarpley and the Daily Mail’s actions: “actual malice,” which basically means that the publishers knew, or should have known, that something they published was false.

It’s an annoying case, not much liking either side.  (Though, frankly, what do I care about the possible First Wife?)  And I’m focusing on the lesser party here, the party to the case that is, reportedly, thrown in just so that the Trumps can have the case in a more favorable court setting.

Steve Klepper, an appellate lawyer for the Baltimore law firm Kramon & Graham, said the inclusion of a blogger in the suit indicated legal maneuvering.
He told the Guardian: “Anytime you have a filing that adds a minor in-state defendant, it’s a flag that they were joined to prevent removal to federal court. And as we know, Donald Trump has not been having been the best luck in federal court recently.”

And item number one in Trump’s very self – interested pledging to pass stricter libel laws if elected, I understand this basic idea.

Trump’s biographer said the suit seemed to be ‘more a threat to other reporters, publishers, news organizations’ to shy away from reporting on nominee’s wife.

So …

Klepper pointed to a Maryland defamation statute that might provide a basis for Melania Trump’s suit. It reads: “A single or married woman whose character or reputation for chastity is defamed by any person may maintain an action against that person.”

The retraction in Tarpley’s “Daily Briefing” is pretty funny.

The Morning Briefing published on tarpley.net on August 2, 2016 referenced unfounded rumors and innuendo regarding Melania Trump, wife of Republican Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump, and her life prior to her marriage. The August 2, 2016 morning briefing asserted that it was widely known that Melania Trump previously worked as an escort and that Mrs. Trump was in fear of revelations that she used to work as an escort. The briefing also stated that multiple unnamed sources stated that Mrs. Trump was in a state of apoplectic tantrum, was suffering from a full-blown nervous breakdown, that both Melania Trump and Donald J. Trump feared the revelations coming to light, and that Mrs. Trump’s condition was negatively affecting the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump.
While the tarpley.net editors, writers and contributors did not generate said rumors, the briefing in question was not diligent in fact-checking or maintaining a healthy distance between innuendo and fact.
As such, Webster G. Tarpley, as editor of the content that appears on tarpley.net, hereby officially retracts the August 2, 2016 morning briefing in full and apologizes to Mrs. Trump for any duress and harm she may have endured as a result of the contents of the August 2, 2016 morning briefing.

He’s the author of a book on George H W Bush.  One on Barack Obama.  And one Mitt Romney (though, having never seen the Mitt Romney book, I don’t even know if it’s about Romney so much as it is about the Big Mormon Threat).

This, I’d say, could be expanded out to everything Like most Larouche texts, the Bush “biography” is a mélange of fact and distortion, written in a highly suppositional style that makes numerous leaps of logic and asserts connections where there is no real evidence to support it, at other times omitting exculpatory or contrary information that reveals a more complete picture.

Sure, I just deleted the “positive” aspect in that final quote, but you find that giant leap of logic with Melanie Trump, crudely speaking “escort” — model = escort.
I suppose the one good thing about this lawsuit (which, with reluctance and annoyance I’d slide to siding with goddamned Tarpley) is it forces him (as well the bigger newspaper tabloid) to rectify one obnoxious crude and personal “leap of logic”.

On the matter of Tarpley jettisoning his role as “historian” (philosopher of history?  journalist? political activist?) in favor of “blogger” (David versus Goliath, I suppose)… it is interesting — given in court proceedings, parties tend to try to amp up their credentials and down-play their opponents in court briefings.  Can’t call himself a “conspiracy theory” (was he there for Princess Di?)

………………………….

* There are plenty of fringe ideologies, but the presidential frontrunner doesn’t usually dedicate a speech to dealing with them. In case you missed it, the John Birch Society, the Lyndon LaRouche movement or even the Westboro Baptist Church don’t drive our political discourse. They’re bizarre ideologies that most of us don’t want to be associated with, let alone support.
So why would Clinton give the Alt-Right airtime if it’s so obviously objectionable? It’s a political play, plain and simple.

A vaguely defined grouping, this “alt right”, an advisor plucked out of one website here, a paranoid 9/11 Truther turning his media empire into a Trump Fan Plaza there.  Political play, you say?  Surely you jest?

The Remnants of the Reform Party and Alabama considers ballot history.

Considerations of Larouche encounters.

only ran into them once (they’re less active in Germany, where they call themselves BüSo), they talked to me about nuclear power because I had studied one of their posters showing a nuclear power plant (as a physicist I have some interest in this topic). The LaRouchies quickly asserted that solar power was a terrible idea, nuclear was top. I tried to argue that solar has some merits and some drawbacks, just like nuclear has advantages and disadvantages, but they wouldn’t have any of it, in their opinion it was nuclear and nothing else.

When I lived in another city they used to scream wide-eyed at me outside of the subway stations and ask if I supported National Socialism in US government. And they had posters of Bush and Cheney with Hitler ‘staches. Now I live in DC and they hang around subway stations here too, but have updated the posters to Obama with a Hitler ‘stache. They need a fresh approach IMO.

I was visiting a friend in Canada a few years ago, and he told me to talk to LaRouche pamphleteers on the street if I encountered any. He promised it would be funny. So I found some (since these people are always in Montreal, especially when the weather gets nice), and the guy I spoke with started telling me all this shit about a secret oil pipeline from Russia or something. Whatever it was, be sure it was serious business! For every claim he made, I responded with phoney concern and an innocent request for proof. I kept saying, “How did you find out about this? Declassified documents?” and he kept trying to work around that and continue his screed.
They also used to put up signs that said “Hitler to Obama: ‘I just love your new healthcare plan!'” Oof.

 Oh God, when I was in college, there was some mysterious person who would leave copies of EIR (Economic Intelligence Report) and a copy of this newspaper that had a headlines like “NEW BRETTON WOODS IN WORKS, AS LAROUCHE PREDICTED.” I cherish them, it’s real hoot stuff. Frankly, a lot of it is just Roosevelt-style government works programs, like he wants to build a high speed train that goes around the world, like building a connection at the Bering Strait.
He’s got some really batshit ideas. Like he has something against modern music, he says it’s not in the right key and he’s petitioned musician organizations to get musicians to perform in a lower key. He also is paranoid about the British, he thinks they’re trying to take over the world, like he thinks the Beatles were a British psych-op operation. I remember reading in EIR about how Condelezza Rice was do a state visit to the UK and how “LaRouche was one of the topics of discussion.”
Last year, I had the misfortune of having one of these nutjobs preach to me on a Philadelphia street corner about the British monarchy and the Jews’ plot to destroy our very way of life. I kept his flyer full of crazy as a souvenir, but I lost it soon after… wish I could’ve scanned it for you guys. It almost read like timecube.
What the fuck is up with these guys, and where do they come from? Does LaRouche himself pay his personal army to do this in every major city?

Tarpley backs Clinton; Goldman backs Trump

Monday, August 15th, 2016

ITEM NUMBER ONE:  Larouchie proves King-Maker in Texas

Just call Craig Holtzclaw the most powerful Larouche Member in American Politics.

On Saturday, Houston lawyer Shawn Thierry effectively won a state House seat by a vote of 13-11, with the deciding vote cast by a card-carrying organizer with the Lyndon LaRouche PAC, a fringe group whose politics are all over the map.

They print out cards?

There were supposed to be 27 chairs at Saturday’s vote. A few days earlier, one chair, another acolyte of Lyndon LaRouche, was stripped of his position after party officials determined he resides outside of the district he was representing. Lee Carter was thought to have a slim majority of the remaining 26 chairs.
But when the campaigns turned up to the center, personal crises had kept two of Lee Carter’s chairs from turning up. With 24 chairs remaining, things got off to a shaky start, presaging difficulties to come: When the chairs attempted to elect one of their own to preside over the meeting, the two candidates both got 12 votes, precipitating a literal coin flip. […]

But what is it Holtzclaw believes, exactly? “I am a LaRouche Democrat,” he said, as in yet another acolyte of the infamous semi-cult leader who thinks Obama is Hitler, has argued that the Queen of England controls the global drug trade, and who wants to colonize space. Ah.
Holtzclaw said he had voted for the candidates who communicated to him that they were willing to take elements of the LaRouche platform to Austin, namely, telling all those tea-party Texas Republicans that we need “big government investment in infrastructure.” That’s what LaRouche calls “the science of physical economy.”
Blackmon and Thierry, he said, had seemed to embrace that line more than Lee Carter. And that’s why she lost, in part.

We await to see if there was some “corrupt bargain” as that which was historically alleged to take place when Henry Clay swung Presidential the election of 1824 the way for John Quincy Adams.

ITEM NUMBER TWO:  Australia Votes…

In the system that brought a member of the “Motoring Enthusiasts Party” into parliament… the Citizens electoral council remains … right at the bottom

Jeff Davy — Citizens Electoral Council — 159 votes.
We now wait to see how the four candidates do in the Northern territories.

Hm… The fertile soils of Kingaroy which gave us Sir Joh also gave life to the Citizens Electoral Council which, in the 2010 federal campaign, issued a press release insisting that Prince Philip collaborated with former Nazi officer Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands to establish the World Wildlife Fund specifically to reduce global population.
More than 2000 Queenslanders voted for the CEC in the 2013 federal ballot and it was their democratic right to do so. It is also a democratic right to politely pose the question: “What on earth were they thinking?’’
And yet … is there method in this madness? Perhaps the behaviour of modern political parties is such that the electorate’s only rational response can be irrationality.

More results?

The first preference vote count to Sunday put Labor’s Damian Wood in third position with 12,160 votes, followed by The Greens’ Carol Vernon on 5,756, Christian Democratic Party candidate Wayne Lawrence on 3085, independent John Arkan had 2979 votes and Michael Gough from Citizens Electoral Council on 616.

ITEM NUMBER THREE: Tarpley and Spengler weigh in

“Accuracy in the Media” and Cliff Kincaid take on Webster Tarpley at the LeftForum… And here, it is interesting to note the direction Webster Tarpley has taken with this presidential election.  It shadows pretty well some typical Bernie Sanders supporters as they slump over to nudging Hillary Clinton support against Donald Trump… though, losing a bit too much anti-Hillary grounding.

… From hosting a cartoon on his twitter account showing Bernie Sanders as a “gate-keeper” keeping wayward leftwingers in line for the eventual corruptible Clinton… to grumbling that Bernie Sanders isn’t really going after Clinton as the corporate-ist (did he say fascist there?) she is… to now?
Twitter feed:  Morally insane #GreenParty #pseudocandidate #JillStein openly embraces #Trump #Fascism to boost her gate receipts!
Twitter feed#Psychotic #JulianAssange spook limited hangout operative for #British- #Chinese bloc backs #Fascist #Trump 2016
Twitter feed:  #BernieOrBust lack realism-#FeelTheBern failed to educate them in #Fascism & #Psychosis of #Trump, threat to #Civilization- #subjectivists

And here Tarpley is at the conventions.

Not far from where Guerrero stood in the slim bars of shade next to the Visitor Center were two signs, both of which compared Trump to a Nazi. These signs were held by members of the Tax Wall Street Party, which formed two and a half years ago and has run candidates both in New York state and in California.
Washington, D.C.-based historian and author Webster Tarpley, wearing a shirt and tie, explained that the inflammatory nature of the signs was necessary to promote his party’s goals — and goal No. 1 is to stop Donald Trump.
“The basic idea is if you’re going to fight Trump, you have to tell the truth about him,” Tarpley said — including about his potential psychiatric problems. “Trump says he suffers from a mild form of Obsessive- compulsive disorder. That would imply he’s seen a psychiatrist. We need to see his medical records, as well as his tax returns.”
Tarpley mentioned Trump’s onetime biographer, Tony Schwartz, who has lately been speaking out about Trump’s personality issues, as well as Justin Frank, author of Bush on the Couch.
“It’s an ethical dilemma because we don’t like to psychoanalyze someone from a distance. But this is the politics of life and death and needs to be confronted.”
Tarpley has taken his dim view of Trump to Jewish groups, including the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), some of whose members questioned Tarpley’s analogizing Trump with Nazism.
“At AIPAC, people said the Holocaust is sui generis. Fine, but you have to get the lessons from the death and suffering. Of course you don’t want to throw ‘Nazi’ around, but this is an emergency.”

Meantime, David Goldman, aka “Spengler” is backing Donald Trump.  (Spengler received some interesting bit of citation from Webster Tarpley in his 2008 anti-Obama book.)
Sooo...

Trump is vulgar, ill-informed and poorly spoken. He has no foreign policy credentials and a disturbing inclination to give credit to Russia’s Vladimir Putin where it isn’t due. But he has one thing that the fifty former officials lack, and that is healthy common sense. That is what propelled him to the Republican nomination.

So, there you go.  The two most larouchian of the post-larouchians weigh in for opposing candidates in the coming election.  Where does that leave Larouche himself, and the Larouche org?

This can’t be right, as the analysis of webcasts pour onOne questioner wondered out loud why he hadn’t heard any support for Donald Trump. […]

ITEM NUMBER FOUR:  Blather

Over the last five weeks the world has changed. Events combined with willful interventions, especially those of Vladimir Putin, have created a new global dynamic and transformed the potential for real and total victory in the immediate period ahead. Success now depends first on the adoption of LaRouche’s ‘Four New Laws,’ […]

What is urgent is the requisite creative pre-emptive action, rather than the repeated failures derived from Newton’s systemic fraud of action-reaction—a fraud that predominates in the neurotic impulses of the political and financial class of the trans-Atlantic today, and a fraud that Einstein so brilliantly exposed. Such pre-emptive action, as required by LaRouche’s Four New Laws, is the very foundation for the preliminary steps by which we eliminate the unnecessary burdens and debts of this failed system.

ITEM NUMBER FIVE

French journalist and founder of Agora Erasmus, the Belgian LaRouche movement,

Not enough attention is paid to Belgium’s Larouche organization.  But there it is, an appearance in Russian media.

And, sure.

ITEM NUMBER SIX

The Democrats have had to deal with firing Lyndon LaRouche many times over the years. But sometimes, the LaRouche Democrats win!

ANDThen came AIDS. In 1986, when right wing extremist Lyndon LaRouche launched his Prop 64 initiative calling for mandatory HIV testing and quarantining HIV-positive people in camps, Weinstein and his best friend Chris Brownlie started the Stop AIDS Quarantine Committee. They distributed more than 60,000 fliers and organized over 4,000 demonstrators to march on La Rouche’s headquarters in Atwater Village, according to gay journalist Bruce Mirken. That march and the No on 64 campaign helped defeat the measure by a whopping 71% to 29%.

It’s a goddamned shame that Lyndon LaRouche isn’t running for president this year. Based on the accuracy of his predictions over the years and his intensely cult-like following, he’d stand a pretty good chance.

HmAfter being hired for my first outdoors job I was chatting with the human resources person and somehow the topic turned to why Bill Clinton deserved a second term. So of course I calmly stated I was going to vote for Lyndon LaRouche. She stared at me as if walrus tusks had sprouted from my nostrils, paused, and then wryly asked if I was simply “stirring the pot.” I surely was, though I didn’t let on. Nor did I reveal the fact I didn’t have a clue about LaRouche’s politics, or anyone’s politics for that matter.

………..

latest larouche crap

Thursday, June 30th, 2016
So.  How’s the Australian election looking for Team Larouche?
Uh oh.  The Citizens Electoral Council rounding up the group list in 23rd spot.  I don’t know if coming at the very end is better than coming in the middle but toward the end, but I do know that “Mature Australia” is sitting pretty at the top spot.
Though the Bullet Train For Australia candidate is tucked in after the Citizens Electoral Council candidate here.  Lindsey Cosgrove goes on to rail against the looming World War III.
Item Number TWO:  What does Larouche think of Brexit?  Oh… who knows… the titles of these EIR pieces could have been written about anything in the past five decades —

The British System Is Doomed: A Totally New System Is Now

And then there’s the new system I suppose Larouche is ambling toward…
Bending Stars Like Reeds Toward a New System of Extra-Planetary something or other

It is worth noting one Webster Tarpley, working against Alex Jones once again, is proving himself quite the globalist.  In the wake of Brexit, his twitter feed going off on Boris Johnson.  Will he be able to stand outside yelling stuff at this year’s conflab of the Bilderberg Conference, or are these things being rescinded these days?

ITEM NUMBER THREE

Trump versus Larouche.
Oh, yes, I forgot; Trump isn’t as much a conspiracist as LaRouche.
ITEM NUMBER FOUR
So, Larouche is in Germany.  Apparently he has a dog.  That’s actually moderately interesting…
The San Fran one might have raised slightly more cash. They disclosed about 70 people showed up even if they’re members. The room was smaller and may have cost less. The org seems to be viewing this as a success.The Texas one never pans the audience.The Boston turnout looked pretty good but running box fans in that cramped office it must have been pretty warm.

ITEM NUMBER FIVE.  History’s Mysteries.

Dennis Hastert is going to a famous prison.  Hastert must surrender by Wednesday afternoon to begin serving a 15-month sentence at the Federal Medical Center in Rochester, a 64-acre secured facility that was once home to former U.S. Rep. Dan Rostenkowski, television evangelist Jim Bakker and perennial fringe presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche.

And celebrating gay pride history… On June 29, 1986, marchers in the NYC Pride March exchange words with two Lyndon LaRouche supporters who were insulting parade participants. Lyndon LaRouche had called for the registration and quarantining of those suffering from or carrying the AIDS virus. LaRouche had gained enough signatures in California to force a vote in the state’s November election.

Speaking of sorts… this is odd analysis.

The mass murder rampage in Orlando, Florida, by alleged Islamic State follower Omar Mateen, is but the latest in a series of horrific terrorist attacks that all flow from a thirty-year-old “oil deal” between the British and Saudi monarchies. That deal has given them great power and great hidden resources to create today’s global jihadist apparatus, for attacks against nations.

ITEM NUMBER SIX

Heh heh.  Protesting in the old tradition of the CPUSA

Russian media reported that “I love Russia” demonstrations took place simultaneously in 15 American states and hundreds of people took to central city squares to declare their love of Russia on the Russian national holiday known as Russia Day.

At the same time the last Gallup poll shows that Americans are increasingly viewing Russia as a threat and the US’s top enemy. 18% said they see Russia and America’s enemy number one, compared to just 3% in 2011.
Furthermore, the only actual American shown in Channel five’s story on the “I love Russia” campaign show is a young woman identified as Michele Fuchs of the Lyndon LaRouche political movement.

ITEM NUMBER SEVEN

Tarpley by way of Cliff Kincaid

AND Etc…

Dennis Small “latin america expert from leesburg”…
Lyndon Larouche, the well-known American political figure.

That being said, while the Huskies have enough talent and experience to compete with (and beat) all 12 teams on their schedule, it would take a lot of coin-flip-or-worse probabilities going right for UConn to jump from to 9-10 wins, which is something you might occasionally see on Lyndon LaRouche fansite “The Boneyard”.

ITEM NUMBER EIGHT

Don’t Be A Senior Sucker

Well “Marsha Maluke” left me a message from 410-299-6293. She said a “friend” brought my letter to the Naples Daily News to her attention and wanted to speak to me about it. Flattery gets you nowhere. Think before you act.
You have so much technology at hand, your friends or the Sheriff’s Office.
I just Googled the phone number and guess what? It’s the Lyndon LaRouche organization. Well, Marsha, I hope you’re not still waiting for my return phone call. Curiosity killed the cat. So seniors stay smart. We may be older but don’t be played for a fool.

As I always say to the LaRouchies who set up shop outside my local post office on Saturdays, before you consider impeaching Obama, consider whether you really want Biden as presiden

 

No slate of candidates? No one to shock Texas?

Thursday, May 19th, 2016

ITEM NUMBER ONE:
The Schiller Institute gets into places at the old annual Left Forum…  moderating a discussion on Greece, it’s Helga Zepp.  And then they’ll be Deconstructing the Subhumanization and Dehumanization of Global Society.  Interestingly enough, the Larouchies are nowhere to be seen in the conferences dealing with the issue of abortion, art, or the environment

which they offer different opinions on...

Lyndon LaRouche really. Is that the best you can do? LOL
Why not just David Koch for better propaganda?
LaRouchie!
hAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
Joke’s on you.  Best

Helga Zepp also seen here.

Where’s (former member) Webster Tarpley?  Telemundo, apparently.

ITEM NUMBER TWO:  If I read this email message right… Larouche is in a sort of “legacy” stage of operation, trying to figure out how to fling his name forward.

This is a man who has profoundly changed the history of the Twentieth and Twenty-First Centuries,— with completely deliberate intention, but by using nothing but his own highly-controversial methods. He has changed the history of these decades using his mind alone, without weapons or budgets. Or whatever weapons or budgets he may have had at any time, he obtained using his unique methods, while he was “understood by very few, and supported by no one,” to quote Einstein on Johannes Kepler.
How is this possible? Common sense and practicality reject it completely,— yet it has happened. Not only that, but it is happening now. And not only that, but it was visibly happening on May 10,— for those who were able to see it.

Tend to the cult, I suppose.  And try to bring the legacy forward.

Liberal Media Bashing:  To cover the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs conference without understanding the publication or the record of its speakers would be akin to covering an Executive Intelligence Review conference on economics without realizing its ties to conspiracy theorist and felon Lyndon LaRouche, or covering a American Renaissance conference on the Black Lives Matter movement without realizing that that publication was dedicated to white supremacism.

ITEM NUMBER THREE:
Hm.  “World on Brink of Existential Crisis”.  Or.  Wait.  I mean,   US, Russia On The Brink Of Thermonuclear War.  (Though, I’m pleased to see the photograph of Putin and Obama at the table there, talking it out, presumably.)

  Putin not strong enough to hold it on, even though…
Mr. LaRouche has repeatedly identified Putin as one of the most brilliant leaders in the modern time as best exemplified by […]
So we are now at an existential crisis, nothing short of removing Obama for his crimes which include this crime of deploying these unnecessary missile systems
Well.  Putin will outlast Obama in office.  Which begs the question:  assuming that Obama’s continued presence in the White House threatens our existence — can we not wait until January?

So this is the last dinosaur in his last desperate ploy trying to provoke a war which would mean the end of civilization. There would be no winner in such a war and it is our duty here in the United States under Mr. and Mrs. LaRouche’s leadership to galvanize the US support for the BRICS nations…

Hmm… The LaRouche Political Action Committee issued its pamphlet, “The United States Joins the New Silk Road. A Hamiltonian Vision for An Economic Renaissance,” precisely as a call to arms in the war to end this literally suicidal submission to that British system.
Symbolic victory.  Hamilton had been slated to be nixed from our currency. Seems to have been saved due to popular culture, ie: a Broadway Play with a positive portrayal of Hamilton.  Instead, Jackson was nixed.  Do I see the Larouchies celebrating this, or building off of it to promote the Hamiltonian Vision?  No.  Opportunity wasted, I suppose.

David Cherry?  In support of Zuma.  And on Sputnik TV… TPP Deal and their take on the Panama Papers.  (Surely we have Cameron tagged, and by extension the British Royal Family… and nobody in Russia.)

ITEM NUMBER FOUR:
Har de har har.
Are you getting the vague sense this wasn’t a Republican presidential primary campaign at all? It was the hapless Shemp Howard of Texas taking on the paranoid, fear-mongering Lyndon LaRouche of the Big Apple to become the Court Jester-in-Chief.

Rachel Maddow brings more attention to Larouche on national television than the man has received in 30 years… largely by re-running a newsclip from 30 years ago.
So, sandwiched between Ross Perot and Pat Buchanan (who Maddow has an interesting relationship with — claims the very clip she shows from the 1992 is what brought her into political activism and today is a co-worker) … it is   at the 7:30 minute mark, as she segues from Ross Perot to Lyndon Larouche.  “If Abe Lincoln were alive today, he’d probably be voting for me.”  Goes on to 12:20 or so.
Into the comments.  Partisan wrangling and things…
RM is correct comparing Trump to LaRouche, both have cult like followings. The only diffence is that some of LaRouche followers were educated and once well meaning leftists who got sucked in by a very cleaver but demented maniac and also the time they were living, the late 1960s and 1970s. Trump and his followers can never be accused of being educated, cleaver, nor well meaning, and he has once and for all transformed the GOTP into a bona fide demented cult.  Cleaver?
Larouche went to prison for credit card fraud (one of mine included). Trump has taken investors’ money and has walked away from bankrupt business ventures while his investors took the loss. Trump knows how to take investors’ money and stay out of jail. So far.
Trumpet isn’t just like Larouche, additionally add in that he’s a jumbled-up combination of Nixon, George Wallace, Bernie Maddow, P.T. Barnum, Pat Buchanan, and Mussolini.
So… Trump is doing good for Larouche’s name spottingbut Americans need to realize that we’re entering uncharted territory. We’ve had our share of demagogues and would-be despots through the years – Huey “the Kingfish” Long, George Wallace and Lyndon LaRouche among them – but never before has one of them captured the nomination of a major party.
In 1980, the Democratic Party was targeted for a hostile takeover by the political cult of Lyndon LaRouche, a mysterious but well-funded eccentric who seemingly materialized out of nowhere as a presidential candidate. When the votes were tallied, LaRouche was barely a footnote in that election, which blew out unpopular incumbent Jimmy Carter and ushered in the Reagan revolution. But LaRouche did not fade away. In fact, he’d been doing what Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have not: pursuing a strategy not only to lay the groundwork for his own candidacy, but to build a movement that would advance his programs on a permanent, ongoing basis.
In theory that’s what Sanders is now apt to be doing, though of course… he won more votes and can’t figure to be a “footnote”.
Larouche’s presidential elections are the ultimate footnotes.  [See?  300 people keep voting for him in Democratic primaries in Virgo County, Florida!)  Rounding errors.  That’s the one big difference between Trump and Larouche:  assuming something catastrophic in the November election, ala a result akin to George McGovern.  The tally will show Trump beating Larouche’s best showing by a 40% (or thereabouts) to 0% tally.  (Or, 0.000something percent).
It Could Be worse…  There have been candidates from obscure parties like the Queer Nation Party and the Vampires, Witches and Pagans Party. Animals, kids and cartoon characters have run, albeit not seriously. A whole slew of entertainers, from Stephen Colbert to Roseanne Barr, have run.
The arcane rules of delegate allocation, which vary from state to state, are lost on the Trump operation, which is perhaps the most laughably unserious presidential campaign since Lyndon Larouche ran for the White House from a prison cell.  The next sentence is moot.  (As is moot the historical footnoting of how Larouche’s 3rd party runs set up a possible Trump 3rd party run.) This means that even if Mr. Trump walks away with the April 19 primary in his home state of New York, it is increasingly unlikely that he will lock up a majority of delegates before July’s Republican convention in Cleveland.  Helps to win the thing outright.  In Larouche’s case, I don’t think he much cared.
I attribute the anger to what I perceive as the old tension between blue-collar workers, who are often less educated and lower paid, and better-off white-collar voters. It is nothing new. Even though white-collar liberals have always supported unions, better pay, better hours, and other improvements for blue-collar workers, that love rarely seems reciprocated. Blue-collar workers have long been angry. In the past they supported George Wallace, Lyndon LaRouche, Ron Paul, Ralph Nader, Ross Perot and others. So what’s new?
Speaking of Trump…
After all, I didn’t see any 2014 stories proclaiming that Lyndon LaRouche acolyte Kesha Rogers is beloved in the panhandle community of Hutchinson County
And speaking of which… shouldn’t there be a Larouchie out there running for something, or is that something they’re not doing anymore?  (Instead, just claim they already have great powers)…
 ITEM NUMBER FIVE… Australia.
LURKING on the fringes of Monday’s Labour Day parade was a scattering of adherents of the Lyndon LaRouche cult and its political arm, the spectacularly unsuccessful Citizens Electoral Council.CEC is the party for those who don’t think One Nation is nutty enough. But, despite an abysmal vote-catching record that would make even a few senators blush, the CEC has an enviable money-raising ability, notably separating a Queensland grazier from $862,000.

Also see this bit of history…  And… showing Illinois 1986 worldwide…
In 1988, Mr Truss stood as the Nationals candidate in the by-election for his state seat of Barambah.In an upset, he was beaten by Trevor Perrett of the ultra-right Citizens Electoral Council. It was largely a protest vote against the Nationals for getting rid of Bjelke-Petersen.

 ITEM NUMBER SIX:

Anecdotes.
Back in 1976, when I was the head of the Democratic Club at my college, an opponent threatened to bring Lyndon LaRouche on campus for a speech.
Rather than threaten a protest to shut him down, I instead suggested a debate – which never came off. He didn’t come to campus.
Later, in English Class, we were asked to “Thoroughly explicate a novel” – I did “The Story of O,” by Pauline Reage.

And, indeed to this.

We can form a political party whose sole end is to promote the candidacy of Lyndon LaRouche or Captain Kangaroo or whomever we want, just as we can run a newspaper that makes comically ill-reasoned endorsements of obviously unfit candidates. No one might join the party, as no one might read the paper. But a political party it would be.
 ITEM NUMBER SEVEN
Dan Schmidt reports
With this beautiful time of Easter, we could enjoy a real Easter blessing, with the resurrection of humanity to a more Christian world by joining the BRICS nations that Obama, to date, hasn’t allowed the U.S. to do.

And here the former Pope and Larouche find their vision placed in the same paragraph.

9/11 was an inside jobLaRouche had forecast eight months earlier, a “Reichstag Fire” type of attack shortly after Bush and Cheney took office.

Also “A plainly unhinged woman writing as ‘Brice Taylor’ insists that, when she was a child, Kissinger turned her into a ‘mind-controlled slave,’ repeatedly making her eat her alphabet cereal in reverse order and taking her on the ‘It’s a Small World’ ride at Disneyland,” writes Niall Ferguson, Harvard’s Laurence A. Tisch Professor of History and a Hoover Institution senior fellow, who also scrutinizes Lyndon LaRouche’s claim that Kissinger is a British agent and David Icke’s assertion that he’s a reptilian shape-changer from the lower fourth dimension before concluding, “No rational people take such nonsense seriously. But the same cannot be said for the allegations made by conspiracy theorists of the left, who are a great deal more influential.”

 ITEM NUMBER EIGHT
 Gonna Shock the nation of France!
 “I am running for president against the political seraglio who sided with the empire of money,” said Mr. Cheminade on his Twitter account. Confirmation that he made ​​Monday morning on the set of the 4 Truths of France 2 . “For over 40 years, the policy is conducted is a financial dismantling policy, not a policy of growth.” And so, in 2005, he announced his candidacy for the 2007 presidential election, it will be validated due to an insufficient number of signatures. This is the sixth candidate for the next presidential candidate in 2012 already. “Yes, I will be a candidate for the 2017 presidential election,” thundered one already candidate in 1995 (he had obtained 0.27% of the votes) and 2012 (0.25% of the vote). Just under two years later, he announced having collected the 500 signatures needed, and when the day comes, gets 0.25% of votes cast.
 Can he break free to .33 percent, or is he doomed to get stomped by the Trotskyite Party as always?

Reportedly, this missing persons report from Leesburg, Virginia has turned out for the worst.  My condolences to loved ones, and anyone else who he knows or has touched in life.

And here I’m in an odd position.  Google his name, and right at the top… you get a page from this blog, out of the Larouche Challenge.  After this I do become a little glib in dropping his name for generalized crankiness — in much the same manner I might with, oh, Bill Kristol.  It’s fair to say I have my political disagreements with him.  What can one say when a simple google search finds that his most read piece of work appears to be an article entitled “The Satanic Origins of Rock”?

But that’s one noteworthy thing on Don Phau.  I can identify him cleanly and clearly with a contentious domestic political cause — a cause here molded a bit too much to the fit the pillars of Larouche’s ideology [and sure, I’m being generous] — I suppose carrying out of its Marxian roots the War against Bourgeois Culture and on into various permetations of an axis fitting small “c” conservative “soccer mom” “It Takes a Village” / “Raising PG Kids in an R Rated World” concerns to a more right wing Moral Majority banner… which, for that matter, taps into a strain of youth angst — the corrupting of American Youth through Mass Popular Culture.  In the 80s, he wrote and made spot media and legislative appearances to decry the theatrics of heavy metal, and launches from there to the myriad of moral panics of youth.  (The Beastialization of Man?  The Beatl-ization of Man!)  As the 90s pass and we enter a new millennium, the conern over school shootings collides with searching violent video games as a chief cause.  Which, for better or worse, slides him right into right into a spittoon for online gamer culture when his writings slide into the edge of the mainstream (or, for that matter, when they don’t) — though, Helga Zepp remained a more visible focus.

I suppose it’s to his credit that I can identify a political angle off of Don Phau, beyond “Larouche”.  But regardless of everything, (and I’m not sugar-coating what he did in the cult, see here for Don Phau circa 1972) condolences.

 

hoping better illusionary success stopping Trump than propping up O’Malley

Friday, March 11th, 2016

Having waited in the weeds by endorsing and campaigning the one candidate poised to stick around the longest (as opposed to Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee) without getting anywhere in the public psyche (as opposed to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders) — that would be Martin O’Malley, to such sources as the Guardian’s amusement — the Lyndon Larouche Movement now turns its attention to battling Donald Trump.  And so enter the post factnet larouche board…

Designed to fail? You’d have to believe that Lyn never once wanted to be president.
Difficult for me to say.  My guess is he had the dream.
Or to see one of his associates win office.
Probably the case he didn’t.
As for Trump, there’s a billion opinions on the net. And a lot of them say his whole campaign is designed to fail.
I have a post on this blog to that effect, and saw a parody in the New Yorker along those lines as well.  The answer by now is, no… and it’s worthwhile to analyze the reasons for his successes and the failure of the Republican Party in getting someone else as the nominee.
He flubs his talking points. He contradicts himself. He’s unprepared.
If you watch Trump’s speeches he rambles from point to point and never says anything of substance. Put him in a debate with Lyn and you know who would win.
Hm.  Trump?  I suppose it’s a little like the Martin Downey Junior debate, in a way.

We’re running out of time and we’re running out of options. Time for Lyn to take center stage before Trump does. Replace his phony nationalism with the American System.
Long walk from the fringes of the fringe to the center of the arena.

And here we get a contradiction.

Trump is a dangerous global criminal, worse than Hitler and Cass Sunstein combined.
The “Worse Than” idea… as opposed to THIS…
We’re in a major breakdown crisis and Lyn is the only change. The other guys have failed.  Donald Trump is literally Hitler.

LITERALLY!!! Not even a reincarnation.  I’d have to look back to see if Obama were a “literally” ever.  At least with Bloomberg and Schwarzenagger — they were just bringing out “Mussolini Style Fascism”, which brings some element of analysis.

The TRUMP brand doesn’t really exist. It was created as a control mechanism to keep people in line — and away from the truth.
AAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!  See how frustrating this is?  It would be coherent if this read “The Trump Brand really exists.  It was created as a control mechanism to keep people in line.”   
Have you ever heard of seen a video of Donald Trump that made you actually think? No!
Har de har har.

What about the fact that Donald Trump has been in THREE parties: Democrats, Reform and then the GOP?

Hillary, being a “Goldwater Girl”, is only at two.  I think Sanders might be considered at three?
You know how many parties Larouche has been in?  The answer comes in the fact that the “Larouche wing of the Democratic Party” had these fly-by-night political party names through the general election campaigns… so on the ballot it was the “Economist Party”, or something akin to that.

Coming soon wherever you see Larouchies congregate to pass out their literature…

larouchetrumptruthlies  Also, because they’re stuck in a branding rut, the “Trump — Hitler mustache” poster… which… has already been done.  I suppose in the theorum that Trump is playing with right-wing nationalism, you do have the “degrees on the political scale” working which wasn’t with Obama, but as bad as Trump is… and make no mistake, he just might be the worst presidential offering of one of the two major political parties of the last century — (at least in terms of what his messaging represents) — he’s not Hitler.

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.

Sure.

On your side, parodically… here.

[The freshest comedy act today: Two old New Yorkers pranking people with tuna sandwiches]

These two self-involved septuagenarians are the alter egos of comedians Nick Kroll and John Mulaney, who met as undergraduates at Georgetown University and are returning to Washington for “Oh, Hello,” a touring show about their two kvetchy characters with a cult following. If this all sounds more like a conversation with your crazy uncle than a comedy show, watch this video.

Who will you vote for?
St. Geegland: Lyndon LaRouche. Lyndon’s getting the vote.
Faizon: I’m gonna support Bernie, our old friend Bernard. I’m going to say I’m supporting Bernie all the way till the end and then I’ll quietly vote for Hillary.

7) Invoking the Holocaust or the Nazis is always a last gasp of desperation from someone who’s losing an argument. And that’s exactly what we look like when we spread these memes. “Oh, is that all you got? Hitler analogies? Congratulations – you just lost the debate.” There are vast amounts of facts, figures, and anecdotal evidence that fully support the case for gun rights. We don’t have to go Nazi. You know who has to go Nazi? Lyndon LaRouche. Is that a look we want to go for too?
Trump’s making things a little too hard.  Nonetheless — I and war opponents in some “realist” arguments were fond of making the observation that, oh, “Saddam Hussein on his worst day is never Adolf Hitler” — so it can be avoided.

It is worth noting that Alex Jones’s websites… are effectively Donald Trump fan-pages now.  Which is all very weird, as it does show a display of values on what it is Jones prioritizes  (see here).  No clue how this will continue as Donald Trump maneuvers to play the “deal-making” moderate True Republican, but I haven’t seen Larouche on the Show for quite a while, nor have I seen the longer term Trump – bashing Webster Tarpley.

#FeelTheBern’s #DemocraticSocialism is wretched slogan-We need #AmericanSystem #Hamilton #Dirigism #NEWDEAL #Protectionism #TWSP

Sure.  Fit it all in on the t-shirt.

ITEM NUMBER TWO:
Your typical “Politicians echoing Larouche” schmearing– this in terms of climate change skepticism against Republican politicos…

AND in this theme… “Energy Lobbyists Gather; Blame Obama and Pope for “War on Fossil Fuels”.

Marv Fertel, CEO of the Nuclear Energy Institute (compensation $3,761,026), said that nuclear power was being “squeezed by gas and renewables.” He promised to take up with his group a question about overseas financing that was posed by an audience member, Marsha Freeman of Executive Intelligence Review. If Fertel was aware that Freeman’s publication was founded by the bizarre convicted felon Lyndon LaRouche, he didn’t let on.

ITEM NUMBER THREE:  Well.  Not as fantastical as the Republican Establishment Notion of bringing out Condi Rice or Mitt Romney through a brokered convention.

…My question was, you know, with O’Malley I know you set that trap:  How does he come back into the race, because clearly there’s no candidate — I won’t even vote, if this is what we’re left with. So maybe talk about that, sir?  How does O’Malley come back into the race if that’s possible?  That was my question.

LAROUCHE:  Well, that can happen.  We can make a revolution of a certain type, in order of course.  We can overturn things. See whenever we become, as a people, whenever we become intelligent, we discover among other things, that we’ve been rummaging in a bastion of foolishness, and therefore we say “uh-oh!  We made a big mistake.  We shouldn’t have done that.  We shouldn’t have begun that.”  And what happens is then people just get rid of bad people.

Now I would say that all of the people who are implicitly rival to O’Malley should be thrown out of office, that is the notable ones; simply throw them out of office.  And it’s like a breath of fresh air!  Throw all these guys out of office — Oh! The air is so fresh!  We never want to go back there again!..

ITEM NUMBER FOUR — Dan Schmitt Reporting for duty.

OneWell, it has calmed down here in Iowa now that the caucus is over. I stood alone at my caucus for Martin O’Malley. Different members supporting other candidates came over to wish me well but not to leave their candidate. None of the presidential candidates of either party have put in writing what their policies are. This is how the LaRouche team in different. We have just released a 33-page pamphlet entitled “U.S. joins the new silk road,” copies of which I will deliver to the council, the board of supervisors, and the public – plain English and with illustrations – it calls for getting rid of this imperial drive to rule the world, for you see, we have already lost our lead.

Should be standing out there in Marshaltown with the “Trump with Hitler mustache” and “Larouche = Truth, Trump = Lies” billboard any day now.

And… interesting.  I actually kind of want to read some “reports from caucus-goers on their experiences, even this.  I stood alone at my caucus for Martin O’Malley. Unfortunately, it shows what money can do. Different members supporting other candidates came over to wish me well, but not to change who they were supporting.

Brings me back to wondering on back in the days of Larouche’s presidential campaigns, how a caucus-goer for one of the mainstream candidates was supposed to make a pitch for a Larouchie’s support.  What’s interesting is that Dan Schmidt does offer up a rebuttal to Larouche’s post-election declaration…

On Thursday, Feb. 4, Lyndon LaRouche will be holding an emergency dialogue with LPAC activists on the implications of the brutal termination of the presidential campaign of Martin O’Malley, and what this signals about the immediate danger of general war. […]
LaRouche’s conclusion, following the abrupt termination of the O’Malley presidential campaign, even before the final Iowa results were announced, was that leading British circles, controlling the Barack Obama Presidency, are desperately escalating their preparations for war against Russia and China. The actions against O’Malley were, in effect, a red dye indication of the war preparations already well-underway. The fact that there were escalating British Crown provocations against Russian President Vladimir Putin, coincident with the actions against O’Malley, sealed the case. […]
These British Empire forces, including their Obama Presidency, are committed to the rapid depopulation of the planet, through warfare and other means. The coincidence of the breakdown crisis, the over-reaction to the LaRouche intervention on behalf of a viable O’Malley candidacy, and the dramatic escalation in targeted provocations against both Russia and China—coming from London and the White House—is the clearest evidence available that mankind is moving into a moment of grave crisis.

Or maybe… as Dan Schmitt reports… they went to vote, and they stood alone for Martin O’Malley as everyone else argued for Clinton and Sanders.

Well here we are! I’m not the Daniel that could read the hand writing on the wall, but I have been able to follow great citizens, Mr. and Mrs. LaRouche. But Lyndon LaRouche, who has been rejected time and again, as president, but who did not go on to make money for himself, but dug into history to understand how human nature works and has told us how the devil works, and how to, with a Christian heart, stop the evil of this world for the good of “We the People.”

ITEM NUMBER FIVE.  Electoral Historical footnoting.

Hmmph.
In Pennsylvania, unlikely candidates have appeared on the ballot before. The 2000 primary, for example, featured Republican Gary Bauer and Democrat Lyndon Larouche. Both men drew single-digit support, but “if you can be a protest vote on an issue, that can be very helpful,” said Robert Morris University political science professor Phil Harold. ”And it’s not a coronation on the Democratic side yet.”

And.
The disconnect stems from a long-running debate between the Christie administration and the Democratic party over whether Justice Jaynee LaVecchia should be categorized as an Independent or a Republican. While LaVecchia is a registered Independent, Democrats have argued that she should actually be considered a Republican, in part because she was nominated by Republican Gov. Christine Todd Whitman.
Roberts took aim at that argument in yet another retort March 1.
“Last time we checked, a registered Independent didn’t mean Republican…or Democrat…or Green Party…or even a Lyndon LaRouche supporter.  It means Independent,” Roberts said.

Into the weeds of campaign finance.
Q: You frequently tweet fun little nuggets that come through in candidate’s campaign-finance filings. Any favorites?
There are the patently silly ones that clearly aren’t serious, but I think my favorites are ones are the ones I see repeatedly.

Lyndon LaRouche’s PAC still raises hundreds of thousands of dollars a year (and sometimes loses some), and it always brings a smile to my face.

Can Trump go for a third party campaign?  Larouche is a precedent.

Honoring
Ruth Williams. Williams is “a tireless community leader, she participated in many actions that led to equality, including the march on Sacramento, fighting the LaRouche initiative, and bringing attention to transgender issues, and serving on numerous boards.” Williams is a member of the city’s Public Safety Commission.
The recommendations will be presented on Monday to the West Hollywood City Council for its approval
.

Smidgeon of success in Australia, once upon a time.

In 1988, Mr Truss stood as the Nationals candidate in the by-election for his state seat of Barambah.
In an upset, he was beaten by Trevor Perrett of the ultra-right Citizens Electoral Council. It was largely a protest vote against the Nationals for getting rid of Bjelke-Petersen.
Here it may be worthwhile looking over the CEC’s donorsEstate of Douglas Maccleath Dolgner is the only one on this list…. interestingly, one of the Top 5 Donors to any of these parties.

Theorizing similarities between Trump delegate “underperforming” and…  Reached at home Wednesday morning, Fakroddin declined an interview; Sadiq could not be reached. Neither would be the first to lose an election in Illinois because of apparent voter angst about what many perceive as foreign names. Thirty years ago, the Illinois Democratic Party watched its preferred nominees for lieutenant governor and secretary of state, George Sangmeister and Aurelia Pucinski, lose to supporters of Lyndon LaRouche named Mark Fairchild and Janice Hart.  Ironic, given the nativist nature of Trump’s campaigning.

Al Sharpton v Larouchies comes up in discussion of Trump “protester” rhetoric.

And the Uncyclopedia updates some new Larouche bits.

ITEM NUMBER SIX… Cliff Kincaid’s fantasy world, redux.

Oh, mercy me.  The real significance of David Duke’s endorsement of Donald Trump?  It has to do with… hm… er?  Their mutual communistic loves of Putin’s Russia?  And down the rabbit hole through “connecto dotting”…

Trump has his own Alexander Dugin—a political operative and alleged dirty trickster by the name of Roger Stone. A “former” Trump adviser who now runs a pro-Trump Super PAC, Stone wrote a book using Russian sources that blamed President Lyndon Johnson for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. His latest book is about what he calls the “Bush Crime Family”—including the two former Republican presidents—and credits such sources as Webster Tarpley, formerly associated with convicted con man and Marxist Lyndon LaRouche. Tarpley is a prominent figure in the so-called 9/11 Truth Movement, which blames unnamed U.S. officials for carrying out the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

Sure.

A communist capitalist. Sure! Makes sense to me.Shades of Lyndon Larouche’s quadrennial infomercials in which he called Henry Kissinger the same.

Item number Seven.

Hey!  Some weird Analysis of Larouche.
In particular all good philosophical or moral ideas can become perverted and integrated into cults and political fanaticism. This has happened even with the Platonic, Neoplatonic and Leibnizean tradition which was appropriated and perverted by the Larouche political cult.
Fair enough.

More memories.
When I was in my teens, I used to love reading the screeds of Lyndon LaRouche and various Trotskyite factions pasted on walls and the outside of mail boxes in New York. Even Dr. Bronner’s Christian mystic rant about the unity of faith. There is something pure and liberating in a good rant. The more unhinged the better. It works better than waterboarding to suss out the fanatics in the world around us.

What do these names all have in common?
There have been, let’s see, former First Lady Barbara Bush, Oscar-winning actor Paul Newman, U.S. Senators John McCain and Estes Kefauver, Rochester-native and presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche, and Boston Celtics’ Robert Parish, M.L. Carr and Satch Sanders. There could be others as well.
They’ve been to Farmington!

Item Number Eight.

Okay.  Around the bend in Russia and Iran…

Executive Intelligence Review Senior Editor Jeff Steinberg told Sputnik that in his Munich speech, Putin had predicted the strategies of the Obama administration almost two years before it took office.

Jeff Steinberg continues on Sputnik railing against George Soros.

Steinberg joins a symposium discussion about Obama’s State of the Union speech.

In this edition of The Debate, Press TV has conducted an interview with William Jones, with the Executive Intelligence Review, and The Hill columnist Brent Budowsky, both from Washington, to discuss the tensions between China and the United States over North Korea’s nuclear program and South China Sea.

William Jones does his bit on Press TV.  Odd commenting:  thanks to the russians, IR, hezbollah and of course Mr Putin the saviour of the modern world  …
And you can look to Press TV for a whole lot more William Jones.  Because we all know you needs your William Jones fix.
