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.

Webster Tarpley battles Kurt Nimmo for HEGEMONY

Friday, January 8th, 2016

We begin with Webster Tarpley, whose admirers are circulating the “bottom half of the Internet” to let everyone know Webster Tarpley has exposed ISIS as a CIA plot to de-stabilize the Mid-East

Have a look at what Dr.Webster Tarpley has to say oon the creation of ISIS that it is an American secret army created to de-stabilise the middle east. Dr.Tarpley is an American historian and broadcaster with his own radio show.

And, we have an intriguing conspiratorial battling line amongst erst-while friends– forces out on twitter…  differing opinions regarding the stand-off in Burns, Oregon.  See here Webster Tarpley’s twitter feed.

fanatics join Oregon armed gangs to privatize lands owned by American people-Will or back them?

is armed gangs of storm troopers-Are militia the right wing of & ? If not let condemn them-

Kid-glove treatment for in exposes them as pampered darlings of

And on this… It’s Webster Tarpley versus Kurt Nimmo!

Mormonism is the issue here? I think it might be the and a criminal insatiable fed govt. . funny.
Tarpley has been on the anti-Mormonism for a while (it was the basis for his 2012 book on Romney) — and that does put him on a collision course against some strains of the conspiratorial chain ala Skousen — As for the other point here… Considering Tarpley a charter member of the “9/11 is an inside job” bunch, that is a good catch on the use of the hash-tag “yallqaeda”.

Kurt Nimmo expounds his view with this cutesy image — showing what it is that is going on.  Yes.  Andrew Jackson and George Washington weep, man on the bench represents either Bundy or the Oregon rancher or the Average American, and Obama looks on, Consitution under foot.

As for the big “gatekeeper” con, the Alex Jones universe (which has been plugging about Trump with a fervor almost akin to how they used to plug along with Ron Paul) — always watching what the right wing (and I guess we’re calling Trump right wing?) avatars are saying to keep the rowdies in line.  Trump: he’d tell “You gotta get out.” Feds have zero authority over the states.

It has been a while since Webster Tarpley has made the rounds on the Alex Jones Show.  Is there fricture as Tarpley moves out to the wacko left while Jones and Nimmo stick to the wacko right?  Who can say?

STORY NUMBER TWO
Huh?  Oh, footnote in what appears to be a footnote of a story that mostly calls into question further concerns for when information online needs to be private.

Ac­cord­ing to cam­paign spend­ing data, Na­tion Build­er’s biggest cli­ents in the cur­rent elec­tion cycle are the Mas­sachu­setts Re­pub­lic­an Party, Rep. Dav­id McKin­ley of West Vir­gin­ia, and the Lyn­don La­Rouche Polit­ic­al Ac­tion Com­mit­tee—which is as­so­ci­ated with the con­tro­ver­sial con­spir­acy the­or­ist and per­en­ni­al pres­id­en­tial can­did­ate.

And ballot decisions come to the fore, one of the foot-notey legacies of the Lyndon Larouche Movement’s electoral campaigns.  How Lyndon Larouche is benefiting the presidential campaign of Donald Trump.

Husted cited a 1981 law barring candidates who are affiliated with a political party from appearing without partisan affiliation on a statewide ballot. Trump officially filed for Ohio’s Republican primary on Friday, seemingly triggering the law. However, as Ballot Access News pointed out in the wake of Husted’s announcement, the law Husted is citing in order to keep Trump off the ballot has been enforced selectively at best. For starters, white nationalist and all around crazy person Lyndon LaRouche appeared on the state’s general election ballot in 1984, 1988 and 1992 as an independent despite having filed for the Democratic nomination all three of those years.
In other words, Ohio is planning on being less accommodating to Trump, who only walks up to the line of being a fascist white supremacist, than it was for one of our nation’s most well-known fascist white supremacists. If Trump is looking for evidence that he’s being treated unfairly, there it is.

STORY NUMBER THREE
Oh, the horrors of being a congressional staff, having to deal with this guy 23 times…

Q: Mr. LaRouche, this is B— from Fair Oaks, Sacramento County, and I was interested in the 25th Amendment and a rapid removal of President Obama, as President Nixon was removed, and I’ve seen it can happen in one day, coming from the top people from the Democratic Party in this case, as it was done in the case of President Nixon. How can this come about and the right people not make the excuses and denials as I come across?
Where we live, in our district, the 7th Congressional District, Congressman Dr. Ami Bera answers like a lawyer, just picks stuff apart and denies there ever was treason or any reason for Obama to be impeached or removed by the 25th Amendment,—that’s just a field caseworker for this guy. I’ve gone 23 times to that office, and they’re just liars, and deniers; it’s useless. So I’d like to know, how could it happen?

Larouche answers?

I’ve also seen my dearest friends assassinated in various parts of the planet; and those assassinations tell me exactly what the problem is. Why were they killed? Like Indira Gandhi; why was she murdered by the British? Why? Because she was a genius; and genius is what these guys specify as a target for killing. Indira Gandhi; that’s not the only case. There are many cases of leading figures who were assassinated; again and again. De Gaulle was not assassinated; but he was virtually assassinated before he died. Because the fascist party, which is called the Socialist Party in France, is the force of evil. Obama is the force of evil.
And therefore, the question is, if you’ve got an option, you better do something about it quickly; because the forces of Satan will gather quickly, exterminate you, and then go back to business as they were doing it before. Unity; the force of unity, is the secret of humanity.

Looky see what’s a’happening on Wikipedia.

Deleted Wikipedia edit for “Larouche Movement” Even more so, they have a group of “Fundraisers, see: Telemarketers” that will call you and yell and swear at you if you don’t buy into or wholeheartedly glom onto all of their tinfoil hat conspiracy theories.

For six months, LaRouche worked with American Healyite leader [[Tim Wohlforth]], who later wrote that LaRouche had a “gargantuan ego,” and “a marvelous ability to place any world happening in a larger context, which seemed to give the event additional meaning, but his thinking was schematic, lacking factual detail and depth.” Leaving Wohlforth’s group, LaRouche briefly joined the rival [[Spartacist League]] before announcing his intention to build a new “Fifth International.” ref name=Wohlforth>{{harvnb|Wohlforth}}, undated. /ref

STORY NUMBER NINE
Yesterday Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley were forced to bow out as candidates for the Presidency, after the trio were found involved in sexual relations together (which the majority of Americans voted was totally gross). This dramatic turn of events rocked the Democrats, as they struggled to think of a quality candidate to replace them.
It was announced this morning that the 93 year old serial Democratic contender, Lyndon LaRouche, would accept his Party’s nomination for president of the United States.
Mr LaRouche has informed the XYZ that he plans to tackle the “Venetian-Dutch-British system” head on by nationalising the banks, oil, water, gas and raw materials. He has stated he will build particle beam weapons and lasers to destroy narco-crops and banking institutions laundering its monetary proceeds.
He further stated he’ll use these particle beam weapons to assassinate leading “oligarchy” figures like Queen Elizabeth and Henry Kissinger (who apparently are seeking to spread AIDS and the bubonic plague).
Frankly I can’t wait to see Mr. LaRouche go head to head with Donald Trump in a debate.

STORY NUMBER TEN.  Clinton surrogates versus Sanders surrogates with Larouchies shouting from the audience.  (Do they count as O’Malley surrogates?)

But there were some highly charged moments, especially when a young white activist apparently involved with the notorious Lyndon LaRouche movement started shouting questions to the surrogates on stage, such as: “What are you going to do to stop the drones from killing people and the World War III instigator and mass-murdering dictator Obama?”
That one seemed to surprise and fluster Eldridge a bit. She turned to the panel and asked: “Do you want to answer the question — quickly?”
Tony Hoffmann, from the Village Independent Democrats club who had welcomed the audience from the outset with fellow V.I.D.’er Marti Speranza, could be heard saying that the activist’s question “doesn’t deserve an answer.”
Nevertheless, Wright gave it a try.
“Let’s not forget that George Bush got us into this war. Let me finish, thank you very much,” he added sardonically as other angry voices intruded. “One of the first things I learned in school was that when we get into wars, the economy is supposed to get better. Well, George Bush got us into two wars and the economy got worse. Whether you disagree with how our president is handling this — that’s your opinion.”
Eldridge ended that discussion after Wright’s comments.
“I think that’s enough. All of the other members on the dais approve of most of the things in the Obama administration,” she said, as several people in the audience clapped.
Then the straw poll began. When it concluded, people began filing out of the auditorium and into the street from an exit door near the stage. Several lingered to talk to the panel, among them the aforementioned activist, who carried a placard showing an image of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The words on it said: “We Need FDR!”

OaklandAnd.  Boston.

OMG – I had not noticed that Obama grew a Hitler moustache. When did he do that? Very ballsy moustache choice!

Brian Gray wins 432 votes

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

STORY NUMBER ONE

Exciting election results in Canada, where the Larouche Platform ™ was on the ballot.

By the time all votes were tallied Conservative Marshall Neufeld gained enough to move into second with 19,894, Liberal Connie Denesiuk slipped into third with 18,727 votes, followed by Samantha Troy from the Green Party, 2,851 and Independent Brian Gray, 432.

OR…

Locally, Richard Cannings of the NDP will be the very first South Okanagan-West Kootenay Member of Parliament (MP) after picking up 37.2 per cent (24,823) of the votes for the region. Marshall Neufeld of the Conservatives (29.9 per cent) and Connie Denesiuk of the Liberals (28.1 per cent) were not far behind in second and third respectively. Green Party candidate Samantha Troy ended up with 4.3 per cent, while independent Brian Gray had 0.6 per cent.

Such results are typical for a candidate whose facebook pages includes wanton attacks on the Queen of England and loud declarations of support for Vladimir Putin.  Unfortunately, while there’s video of Neufeld’s victory, I’m still having to look around some more for video of Gray’s farewell speech.

This is all as opposed to a candidate running for a legislative seat in Virginia, who is unfairly being tarred a Larouchite — a game of political attack (part of his past, since then he — for instance– went on to support Dennis Kucinich) and lazy reportage.  Past associations never easily cleavered.  At any rate, my guess he’ll do better than Brian Gray.

STORY NUMBER TWO:

Lyndon Larouche pronounces “John Boehner” “John Boner” — a childish lowbrow joke which is maybe something you can do once, but then gets tiresome when you actually want to say something of any substance about politics.  Also stamps out as fraudulent the supposed goal of a new “Renaissance”, and the criticism of the demoralizing quality of our culture.  GO Org, GO.

STORY NUMBER THREE

A question in the search terms for this blog.  “Does Lyndon Larouche support Bernie Sanders”?  Answer?  No.  Last I saw, his line was full of support Martin O’Malley, but don’t let that support alter whatever opinion you have or don’t have of Martin O’Malley.

Indeed.  Recent comments on Bernie Sanders.

The corrupt fundraisers for Obama’s campaigns, who smuggled in drug-money under cover of anonymous internet contributions in 2008 for Obama’s fraudulent victory over a better Hillary Clinton, [big backers of Hillary in 2008, today they’re running around with Mike Gravel, noted drug –marijuana– dealer]—have now moved over to perform the same service for Bernie Sanders.

And you know what they think of Obama… (That he’s Hitler).  Not that it matters that much, because…

A different nominating process must be begun now, directed not so much to nominating a single individual for President, but much more towards the creation of a Presidential team, like Franklin Roosevelt’s or George Washington’s team, for example, which unites within itself the qualifications and the knowledge to rescue our country while there is still time. And like Roosevelt’s and Washington’s teams in their time, that team must be assembled now, in and around Manhattan.

Which, I suppose, means that should Bernie Sanders (or Hillary Clinton… or Mike Huckabee or Donald Trump for that matter) come to be president, we will have an interim of a couple months before the inauguration where, as in 2008 after Obama’s election, the Larouchies will report on making contacts with the new administration, before being summarily rejected and becoming ipsofacto Hitler.
This is what Edgar Allan Poe tried to teach you in his great stories, “The Pit and the Pendulum,? and “A Descent into the Maelström,? among so many others. Reread them now. Indeed, he sacrificed everything to teach you this; and now, well over a century later, have you learned nothing at all?
Sure.  It’s the Larouchies and Edgar Allen Poe Versus the Universe.
It’s the Universe that’s the issue, at least the human part of the Universe as we know it. And therefore, we’re going to have to have a composition pulled together which meets that requirement. And we can do that. If we get our ass off the shelf, shall we say, or something like that, we can do it! And we can do it on the basis of a central reference to Manhattan.
And Math.
And you know, mathematics has been one of the most Satanic influences, effectively a Satanic influence, as I know of: mathematics.  Mathematics is a crime against mankind. 
Worth noting, Webster Tarpley has some thoughts on Bernie Sanders.  Decent left wing “gate keeper” idea — I saw a forum round about here in Portland “Should the Left Support Bernie Sanders?”  I can anticipate the focus of the argument against, as spoken too by Green Party candidate Jill Stein — “at the end he’s just going to endorse Hillary Clinton”.  I say this as neither good or bad regarding Bernie Sanders, it’s just that Tarpley has tapped standard left wing criticism of Bernie Sanders, with the added problem that… he supported Hillary Clinton in 2008, with wholly implausible rationales that struck as just political opportunism.
STORY NUMBER FOUR
Further Tarpley item:

US historian Webster Tarpley also shared the similar idea, stating that the United States created ISIL to use the jihadists as its secret army to destabilize the Middle East.

What does it mean that in the latest appearance by Michael Billington on Russia TV, he’s referred to as…
The author of the book titled “Reflections of an American Political Prisoner: the Repression and Promise of the LaRouche Movement
which isn’t a book apt to be in heavy promotion, nor is a touchstone book of any sort.
 Here we see the Larouchies called “goo-gooites… good government… from the Larouchies?

Henry George, for all his faults, had the following to say– which is demonstrated to have endlessly annoyed Republicans, Democrats, liberals, conservatives, socialists, communists, libertarians, Ayn Rand devotees, and Lyndon LaRouche goo-gooites

Historical note, from the PANIC Initiative campaigns, and whatfor is AIDS.

Oh, andJustice Department lawyer Kyle Freeny said the requesters — writers for the Lyndon LaRouche-backed Executive Intelligence Review who are representing themselves in the lawsuit — have already received all the records they’re entitled to regarding a Presidential Study Directive President Barack Obama issued on the subject.  Freeny said searches continue on the broader issue of the Muslim Brotherhood.

STORY NUMBER SIX

The UN has a report.  Which includes some passages in regards to  the Horrors of video games, all for the broader topic of “cyber violence against women and girls“.  It cites Larouche. Curiously
 The citation for ‘killing zombies’ links back to quotes from Lyndon LaRouche and Helga Zepp-LaRouche from 2000 when they were decrying video game culture and the Pokémon cult, claiming that it promoted Satanism.
The Pokemon cult is pretty well passe, ain’t it?  Next thing you’ll be ripping the Beanie Babies Cult.

The UN has since apologized.

On Wednesday, the UN issued an apology for how poorly sourced its report on the phenomenon turned out. Relying on such noteworthy sources as Wikipedia, a publication associated with conspiracy theorist extraordinaire Lyndon LaRouche and the UN itself, the report on cyberviolence against women and girls was panned by both supporters and critics alike when it was issued September 24. The prestigious international union promised that it would issue a revision soon, with much better sourcing.

Next up, the UN Report exposing the evils of Math.

It is fairly amusing to see this publication, which would sympathize with the Larouche stance on the influences of video games and mass entertainment media in general, but also has an axe to grind agains the UN, take up the cudgel on this story.

Mike Gravel update

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

Mike Gravel covering… The Beatles.  Not once, but twice.
There is a contradiction here, isn’t there?  As he now lines up in talks with… Lyndon Larouche…
No… It’s Mike Gravel.

The Schiller Institute has announced a special event for Sept. 12 in Manhattan, entitled “Creating a Peace Paradigm: A New Era for Mankind Where We All Become Truly Human.” Due to the importance of this event, it will be presented as a live webcast.
Uh huh.

The event’s feature presentation will be a dialogue between American Statesman Lyndon LaRouche and two other veteran members of the U.S. Presidency, Ramsey Clark (Attorney General 1967-1969) and Senator Mike Gravel (US Senator Alaska 1969-1981).
Okay.  That’s where this gets a little fuzzy.

“Two other veteran members of the US Presidency”.

From my definition of things, there are 43 “members of the US Presidency”.  George Washington through Barack Obama.  Currently alive, there are five.

I suppose if we define it to include people who run for President, than Mike Gravel belongs there alongside Lyndon Larouche.  As does, oh, Deez Nuts, who will have the same “footnote” of historical import.

Ramsey Clark was in a presidential administration once.

In the “Fantasy Shadow Government contraption” definition, laid out by Larouche… which I don’t know quite what is  — any figure of import that Larouche can rope into a “dialouge”? … I’m a little curious if Ramsey Clark and Mike Gravel consider themselves “veteran members” of the “US Presidency”.

With all eyes on Manhattan on the eve of the U.N. General Assembly and Pope Francis’ first visit to the United States, Mr. LaRouche’s intervention into Manhattan, to shape the debate about the very existence of the future of mankind, is something you do not want to miss.

Yes, it’s another one of those “most momentus weeks in Mankind’s History”…
Hm…

Former U.S. Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska) is the new CEO of a marijuana company that produces cannabis-infused products for both recreational and medical use, the company announced Tuesday.
The Alaskan Democrat and 2008 presidential contender will lead KUSH, a subsidiary owned by Cannabis Sativa, Inc. Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson serves as CEO of Cannabis Sativa, and Gravel is on that company’s board of directors.
KUSH will develop and market new marijuana-infused products under Gravel’s leadership, the company said in a press release.

… Is marijuana cool to the org now?
I suppose you make your compromises with things, as one time firm anti-monarchist Jeremy Corbyn ascedes to the formality of kissing the Queen’s hand and pledging servant upon ascension to Labour Party head.
Incidentally…  once upon a time a drug dealer anathema to the Larouche org, now there’s a drug dealer (Gravel) that’s been drafted into the “Presidency”.

As for Corbyn… the closest the Nation gets to addressing his sideshow with the CEC, though not quite there:

Then there are—predictably, given Corbyn’s long record of support for the Palestinian cause—the accusations of anti-Semitism. Not against Corbyn himself, who is universally regarded as a thoroughly decent man. Instead the attacks are classic “guilt by association” tactics, in which Corbyn is alleged to have shared a platform with various objectionable characters whom he has then been pressed to denounce or disavow—by groups and individuals who have been happily doing Benjamin Net- anyahu’s dirty work for years.

Outside the DNC:

As a self-identified representative from Lyndon LaRouche’s LaRouchePAC handed out literature criticizing the Clinton administration’s repeal of Glass-Steagall, and protesters struck up a rendition of Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are-A Changin’,” security guards stood outside, helping some DNC staffers get in and out of the building.

AND

The crowd was about two-thirds supporters of former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley (whose failed administration, which imposed taxes on rainwater, lost his state to the GOP in 2014), and one-third supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), with a couple of Lyndon Larouche fans on the sidelines to promote their arcane economic theologies.

And We’ll find out soon enough how much of the vote Brian Gray, larouchite for Canadian office, does.

Jeremy Corbyn did a what now?

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

‘Tis the Winter of The Labour Party of Britain’s discontent, as they navigate from a horrible election result with no obvious way forward… the two poles to navigate on that old “thesis – antithesis synthesis” dialectic, whichin ordinary times would land on something like the “synthesis”… one — oh, Tony Blairism, the political figure who represents the party’s most recent success but who the party faithful always found ever so compromised against their policy desires.  (Apparently the figure in the race most aligned with Blair is about ready to come dead last.)  The other route, some assertion or re-assertion of party principles, which is what is prompting the rise of Jeremy Corbyn — the most left-wing of the contenders for Party Leader who has his hat in the ring.  And he’s about to win, with the other two people in the race jockeying for second, to be in line for the Leadership position when sometime in the next five years the party decides to shuffle back to “responsible”.

Rough analogy in American politics, and with the caveat that we have two different political traditions at work here and analogies fall apart — he is more Bernie Sanders 2016 (clearly to the left of traditional front-bench party figures) than Howard Dean 2004 (whatever his political liabilities, very much in essence a mainline Democrat in policy).  There has been, or so my understanding if I read the British press right, that by the time we get to party elections, his bubble will burst… akin to what we expect with Sanders or Trump — some combination of being exposed, the party “sobering up”, or party heads bearing down…  Or so my understand… but it appears it’s the party’s winter of its discontent, the logic comes in that they’re in the wilderness and are apt to want a voice in parliament arguing moreso than immediate electoral aim… so… things are in flux — September 12, Corbyn is going to win.  A party civil war in the offing, and…

So, pass the popcorn, as they say, and… hrm… some conspiratorial aims of politics…  Unreconstructed Trotskyite, ye say?  Funny that… because … hm.  Reconstructed Trotskyites abound.

Jeremy Corbyn spoke by video at a meeting held earlier this year by a group fronting for the far-right LaRouche organisation, it has emerged.
The frontrunner in the Labour leadership race addressed the annual conference of the Citizens Electoral Council (CEC) in Melbourne, Australia in April.
It was held under the auspices of the Schiller Institute, an international thinktank connected to the extremist LaRouche movement, headed by American Lyndon LaRouche, a convicted fraudster.
According to the Schiller Institute’s website, Mr Corbyn appeared in the same session as fellow left-wing Labour MP Michael Meacher and anti-EU Tory activist Robert Oulds.

Yeah.  Interesting band of political allies all aroundA favourite of Kremlin Russia TV.

On “anti-zionism”.  Corbyn clearly doesn’t feel overly perturbed by the chatter about anti-Semitism that is dogging him; when the Jewish Chronicle published a series of questions addressed to him, instead of picking up the phone and calling them—as any politician who cared about the feelings of the Jewish community would naturally do—he appointed a spokesperson to engage in an email exchange with the paper. Thus did readers learn that “Jeremy” considers that “Holocaust denial is vile and wrong,” though at no point did “Jeremy” condemn by name any of the Holocaust deniers and conspiracy theorists (among them the followers of Lyndon Larouche, an American far-right leader) with whom he has associated.

Interesting thought here… and this is maybe the most interesting piece on this particular controversy ( — a voice to be drawn upon in British news dealings with Larouche

“The fact that Jeremy Corbyn shared a platform and had any dealings at all with the CEC in Australia proves that to my mind he is not to be trusted,” Duggan, whose group is called Justice for Jeremiah, told IBTimes UK. “Anyone who can have dealings with a political party that is a smokescreen for a highly dangerous political cult that incites hatred against British people, the Crown and Jewish people, that has stated that they are at war with the British state is sowing the seeds of violence to be engendered against us.
“Not only can in my view Jeremy Corbyn be therefore unfit to be a leader of any party but he should be severely rebuked by the Labour party for his past act of collaboration with such a dangerous group. Jeremy Corbyn’s act to participate in a conference organised by the CEC in Australia is to give sanction to a dangerous network and shows me that he is prepared to risk not only the safety of British people but the safety of many other people in the world.”

Comments.

If you actually watch Laroche videos, he talked about Obama wanting to destroy the world because he worked for the royale family. Everything was blamed on the british, I had to laugh, its highly entertaining. I cant believe that people would actually believe larouche hes like a cartoon character on par with alex jones.

Surely ye jest.  Going after the British — Among the articles on CEC Australia’s website is one headlined: “British Oligarchy planning new 9/11 to trigger World War III?” Another reads: “MI6 disinformation division conjures new ‘evidence’ for anniversary of MH17″.

The line from the org on why they’re out to destroy Jeremy Corbyn.

On Aug. 14, American Statesman Lyndon LaRouche emphasized support for Glass-Steagall in his response to an institutional question on whether Jeremy Corbyn was qualified to be the next leader of the British Labour Party. Speaking on LaRouche PAC’s Friday Webcast,

Comically enough, Cliff Kincaid, ala Accuracy In Media goes after Bernie Sanders… ignores that the party they’re vaguely aligned to is currently suffering the woes of Donald Trump… and makes in some way the same connection I have to Britain with Corbyn.  But shouldn’t they mention that the Larouchies are actually backing Martin O’Malley?

As for Corbyn… he’s denying he knew what the heck the Citizen’s Electoral Council was… won’t be there in the future… and — heh.

STORY NUMBERE THREE: Rhetorical Firepower

Looking over for some overblown… interesting rhetoric.  This from Michael Steger, in a policy committee from July 27…

And that’s all there is. If you have any sense of reality to that, and all you think you can do is conform to that, or adapt to that system, you might be able to get by Monday to Friday, but on Saturday and Sunday you’re probably depressed. You’re not able to survive. And you’re killing people all around you, all over the place! — Michael Steger , 24 minute mark of 7-27

And then… at the “New Manhatten Project” — thiny…  Larouche comes out against killing Obama.  Nice of him to do so.

Q:  [followup] Sorry, I also wanted to ask you, if we’re looking at thermonuclear war within the next couple months, don’t you think it would be safe to say that he should be out already?

LAROUCHE:  No.  Doesn’t work that way, you don’t understand the process of war.  I’m a specialist in the process of war; I can tell you, we’re on the edge of doing it very soon.  And the point is to prevent that solution, and use other methods by throwing him out of office.  We don’t want to have to shoot him, we want to throw him out of office, where he can’t kill anybody, any more people.  He’s killed too many already.

Q:  OK, thank you.

And… sure?

It’s Mr. LaRouche’s view on this that unless we take advantage of the current enormous crisis in the United States, the exposure of the Obama administration for multiple crimes to remove him from office now or marginalize him such that he is ineffective in trying to start the war during this month of August, while the US Congress is out of session, when he can act with somewhat with impunity.

STORY NUMBER FOUR: RIP, Amelia Boyntyn Robinson

So passes Amelia Boyntyn Robinson… who at the end of her life backed Obama and Larouche.

The Larouche connection, her vice presidential status at the Schiller Institute, is a last footnote in obituaries and memorials.

Boynton Robinson settled in Tuskegee in 1976 and later became a vice president of the Schiller Institute, an organisation affiliated with political extremist and fringe presidential candidate Lyndon R LaRouche. She said she was drawn to his ideas for economic revival. LaRouche went to prison after being convicted of mail fraud in the 1980s.

Relevancies for her bio:  because of this involvement, in 1992, the petition for “Amelia Boynton Robinson Day” in Seattle WA was voided and unfortunate, this “human rights foundation“:  Some of Robinson’s words live on — both in her autobiography, Bridge Across Jordan, and on the website of her human rights foundation, the Schiller Institute. 

The Larouche comment on her emphasizes this footnote.

Our nation has lost one of its greatest patriots: earlier this morning Amelia Boynton Robinson passed away in Montgomery, Alabama, at 104, after having suffered a stroke on August 18. Amelia is an outstanding example of the human potential that exists in all of us, if you’ve got the courage to use it. A civil rights heroine her entire life, Amelia teamed up with Lyndon and Helga Zepp-LaRouche and became Vice President of Helga Zepp-LaRouche’s Schiller Institute, traveling the world inspiring the young and old to be a force for the good in human history.

It’s… interesting, isn’t it?

Boynton Robinson, who was portrayed by Lorraine Toussaint in the 2014 film Selma, remained politically engaged and unafraid of controversy even in advanced age, making public appearances into her late 90s for Lyndon LaRouche’s Schiller Institute. She attended the State of the Union address this past January with Rep. Terri Sewell, the first black woman elected to Congress from Alabama. Less than two months later, Boynton Robinson accompanied President Obama across the Edmund Pettus Bridge to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the march.

It’s an unforunate side journey late in life.  I fault James Bevel more than Robinson in the association with Larouche, best shown with this bizarre duality of “Obama and Larouche”.

AND INSULTS and all that

Rare praise for Carl Levin from Commentary Magazine, with an odd caveat.

In hindsight, hats off to Senator Carl Levin for, back in 2003, using his oversight position to survey top generals about their opinion about the planning and potential impact of Operation Iraqi Freedom. While I disagreed with much of Levin’s rhetoric and regret that he spent so much time pursuing Lyndon LaRouche-generated conspiracy theories (such as that involving the stupidly named Office of Special Plans), no one can suggest that Levin did not do his job.

Dateline Manhatten.

Daniel Burke spoke first at the podium set up directly in front of Federal Hall. Daniel Burke questioned Hillary Clinton last Monday when she spoke at the New School here in NYC, asking her if she is in favor of reinstating Glass Steagall of which she gave NO COMMENT. Daniel was escorted from the premises but not arrested.

Dudes really hate the Queen.

“mentally Ill”?

In defense of Mike Huckabee on that “taking the Israelis to the Oven” comment.  If ye must.  Say… isn’t this nuclear deal a thing the Larouchies should be coming out in favor of?

Newt Gingrich, how he’s like Larouche… campaign debt.

Yes, but where does Ms. Clinton stand on thermo-nuclear war?

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Disappointing to reference a “neo-nazi cult” in the headline.  Sure, I know… “Borman’s Ghost”, “The Underground Reich” — see the Dave Emory program for the latter and a blog post series for the former, but — precision is off.

And here we go...

But a British inquest ruled last month that Duggan did not commit suicide.
The coroner found that the far-Right LaRouche movement “may have had a bearing” on his death.
Now the student’s family have returned to Germany to press the authorities for answers.
Erica Duggan, his mother, accused German police and prosecutors of a “cover-up”.
Mrs Duggan told a Berlin press conference how her father fled to Britain from Nazi Germany to escape persecution as a Jew.
“I have tried everything to find out what happened, because every mother would want to know what happened if her child died in this dreadful way,” she said.
“Why has it been 12 years and I still don’t even know where my son was the night before he died?”

The German high court ordered the police investigation into the case to be reopened in 2012 – an unusual move in Germany.
But the family said the police have been dragging their feet since then, and have not interviewed suspects named by the court.
“At this point I don’t know if we can go forward with the legal process because in Germany there’s no way of making a complaint against the police,” Mrs Duggan said.

After shifting past the few comments from the Larouche Internet Commenters re:  (rigid east:  send in slime ball tony blair to sort it out, that is now his job, but do not hold your breath.. — not necessarily coherent, but get in a dig on Tony Blair), I’d wondered if there would be an “official” response, visa vie Executive Intelligence Review.  Finally, this appears to be it.

It is a doozy.   Someone (ex member, apparently)
began sending an obscene series of emails, numbering 80 printed pages to members of LaRouche PAC in New Jersey”, which is your garden variety internal email affair  any organization has to deal with, (whatever the theme of the email — here — hm — calls the cult a cult).
The Brooks email incident and aborted infiltration of the LaRouche movement is a notable part of an unprecedented attack, on behalf of the British monarchy, on a U.S. political organization and an associated organization in Germany. It is abundantly clear from the claims in the emails that, the individual who wrote them, is acting on behalf of British intelligence and the Royal Family, as part of a desperate effort to derail the escalating influence of Lyndon LaRouche and Helga Zepp LaRouche on the BRICS group of countries.

Huh.

The writer bases these accusations on theories propounded by Steve Hassan, a “cult deprogrammer” and former member of the Moonies, who has recently emerged as a star player in British Crown’s years’ long black propaganda campaign against the LaRouches centered on the suicide of Jeremiah Duggan. The Moonies were a documented Bush family intelligence operation in the U.S. and in Central and South America. Hassan otherwise has a long history of attacks on the LaRouche political movement. The goal of the Duggan hoax is to defame, discredit, and harass the LaRouches in the United States and Germany in particular. Both the U.S. and Germany are critical to the success of the BRICS.

The Moonies?  There’s a bit of cognitive dissonance in moving from “Shortly after the verdict the Duggan family once again accused German authorities of Nazi leanings” (historically anti-semitic, natch) to bringing up the Moonies.

STORY NUMBER TWO:  The question.  In the long span of 8 time presidential candidacy Lyndon Larouche… what would it have taken for him to pull off a victory?

Here’s the best shot.  Into Congress.  The “Leninist Cadre” Cohorts around him.  Onto the presidency in the year of the Outsider, 1976.

I like the fact that Robert Caro wrote the book.

And… no, I’m still not convinced.

Maybe LaRouche will approve lots of funding for Project Orion…to Mars by A-BOMB!!!  Yes, probably.

More historical notices, in remembering the candidacy of Bill Bradley 2000:
Scores of other candidacies have expired or suffered irreparable wounds. Front-runners (Ed Muskie and Bob Dole), one-percenters (Steve Forbes and Pete DuPont), insurgents (Jesse Jackson), radicals (Lyndon LaRouche), self-defeatists (Gary Hart), talking heads (Pat Buchanan): They all tread New Hampshire’s hills and valleys in unsuccessful bids for the presidency.

And, as we currently reside in “Peak Trump“: He has pontificated about the presidency almost as often as fellow fringe candidate Lyndon LaRouche has aimed at the country’s highest office.

And a blast from the past on inner-Republican battles, Oklahoma 1989…

STORY NUMBER THREE:

So.  Does this put him the running to replace Diane Sare (can’t run on the “Youth Movement” idea any longer) in the New Jersey slot of the electoral campaign apparatus?
Daniel Burke… heckler

“Senator Clinton, will you restore Glass-Steagall?” activist Daniel Burke yelled out. Escorted out by security, Burke told Business Insider that he is an organizer with LaRouche PAC, which supports activist Lyndon LaRouche. The Glass-Steagall Act, which separates commercial banks and investment banks, was repealed in 1999, during Bill Clinton’s presidency. Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts is working to restore it with a bipartisan group of senators.
Glass-Steagall. Dodd-Frank. For a select Democratic primary crowd, words like that will have them cheering from the rafters — just like Donald Trump’s words about immigrants excite the most right-leaning Republican primary voters.

Sure, a tad more coherent than, oh, Dave Christie … but… but… but… Greece? 

“It should be passed immediately, preferably in the next two weeks. We really do not know what will come … of the potential for an immediate financial crash on the basis of the Greek trigger,” Burke said.

Clinton has not been clear about her position on Glass-Steagall. Her two Democratic primary rivals, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) have said they support restoring the law.

Etc. etc. etc.

 Mr Burke also said that he was a huge fan of Ms Clinton’s husband bill — who was often criticised by Democrats for undoing the major provisions of the original Glass-Steagall act.
Maybe we can have a heckler for Lincoln Chafee and Jim Gilmore, as well one for Jeb Bush and Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders… and which person is assigned to which candidate will give then given us an idea of who’s up and who’s down within the organization who gets sidled with which candidate.  (If someone disrupts a Lincoln Chafee event, would anyone notice?)

Interesting to note… the Larouchies believe Hillary Clinton is finished — finished off by the Burke Intervention.   Lincoln Chafee thinks she’s on borrowed time too, though… it is puzzling … who does he think will replace her?

DATELINE WALNUT CREEK

Although I was vaguely aware of the politics of Lyndon LaRouche, the perennial presidential candidate, and had over the years noticed the sidewalk tables where his views were promoted.
I had never spoken with his supporters until today when I left the post office on Broadway and saw the LaRouche table out front on the sidewalk. Rarely, if ever, have I had such an awful experience. The two individuals at the table were nothing but thugs who engaged in the most obscene language not only in description of the nation’s political parties, but in regard to myself personally. I was so shocked I immediately went to the police department to file an incident report to which the police responded by sending two officers to the Broadway location.
I strongly urge every citizen to avoid these thugs who have no right to be in any civilized place, much less Walnut Creek.

DATELINE NAPA … Say, is this an example of “good cop / bad cop”
The two men sitting at the table were a study in opposites. One was young, well-dressed, and personally well-groomed. The other man had on a white sleeveless undershirt, shorts, uncombed hair, and a slouched demeanor.
STORY NUMBER FOUR — Moving to Manhatten?  To Sing?

October of last year, Lyndon LaRouche announced his intent to revive Alexander Hamilton’s Manhattan to its proper national and international role as the center for restoring the unity of the United States of America. A crucial aspect of this, has been, and will be even more, the formation of a community chorus, based on the principle of harmony, as expressed above.
On top of that, or perhaps as a result of that, we have a president who is about to plunge the world into thermonuclear war, while he indulges himself in fantasy-ridden snuff films about the killing of Osama bin Laden, or hosts orgiastic rock concerts, which are the moral equivalent.

That being said, there is a better side to the American people, and it emanates from Manhattan; explicitly from Alexander Hamilton and his collaborators’ battle for the principle of the human mind vs. the bestial approach of the Virginia slaveholders:
It is this human quality of the American population which can be most directly accessed though Classical music, specifically choral music.

STORY NUMBER FIVE — International Reception

Is that racist nutcase Lyndon Larouche still alive?

From here, an explainer

Its only 45 seconds altogether, and she spends most of the time denouncing Bertrand Russell. She claims Kennedy had a back channel to Khrushchev during the Cuban Missile Crisis (behind the backs of the British, that is) and that this saved the world. At 2:05, THE STARE warns, “Unfortunately, with Obama there is no such thing.”
Now, this was a report Channel One was doing about the already-infamous video of Mark Dice wandering around the beach asking people if they would “help Obama” by signing a petition to preemptively attack Russia with nuclear weapons. Dice has done a series of these petition videos to demonstrate idiocy in America, and they are meant as humor. But Russians did not find it funny.
And, no doubt, THE STARE decided it would serve the org’s purpose by playing up that anxiety in Russia with a hysterical diatribe against Obama that will be watched by tens of millions of Russians, a good many who’ll think her analysis of Obama’s murderous intentions are truthful.
So, if WWIII starts on July 5th as a result of her babbling, will THE STARE have the satisfaction of knowing she played a crucial part of this PROCESS to help Obama start WWIII? […]

But I think she’ll have to work harder than she imagines. Channel One did not place a banner with her name or, more importantly, that of THE DEAR LEADER or even LaRouchePAC, and therefore did not make her out to be any more of a geopolitical expert than any of the other people who were interviewed on the streets of Manhattan.
As far as the Russian viewing public (and Kremlin) are concerned, it was just some bat-sh*t crazy woman in a green frock snarling about Obama’s nuclear death wish.

And, okay… Press TV with William Jones, Sputnik with JJ Steinberg,and

All AfricaAn organisation set up by highly controversial US political activist Lyndon LaRouche has been unsuccessfully pressing for a canal project known as Transaqua. LaRouche and the various publishing organisations he runs have previously attracted suspicion for circulating conspiracy theories and advocating for grand infrastructure projects.

Interesting… Pro-Putin, anti-Ukraine sympathies… and fighting the “gate-keepers sanctioned left”…

Prof. Tarpely presented a powerful slide presentation documenting less considered aspects of current events, for example:
the non-existence throughout history of a Ukrainian nation until the dissolution of the USSR, and the resulting patchwork of nationalities within an unmanageable Ukrainian state;
Democracy Now, Code Pink, Medea Benjamin, and Michael Moore being Leftists with credentials used for CIA purposes in regard to Libya and Syria and other Anglo-America led crimes against humanity;
a host of autocrats in history like Bismarck, made to be viewed in a harsh light, who pioneered great social improvements with Tarpley looking to possibly expecting the same from current figures painted in a harsh light, like Putin.

Story Number One:  Galactic Man?

The influence of what was once known as the “Larouche Youth Movement”, and can now be called the “Larouche No Longer Youth Movement”, as they make their way up in position in the Larouche Movement can be seen in the new “Galactic Man” line.  This is a tribute to their generational childhood viewing of Tiny Toons Adventure, when they produced a video for the song “Particle Man“.
The rest of the issue is simply an oblique way to study the lyrics to the song.  Clever, the Larouche No Longer Youth Movement they, in doing this.

Or maybe they’re playing with toy robots, and were from a family with an income level that couldn’t quite afford Transformers?

Triangle Man beats Galactic Man, as in the song Triangle Man beats everyone, but who wins between Galactic Man and Universe Man?  Nobody knows…

Story Number Two:  A smidget of a ruling crashing into the narrative line

Start with Newsweek, Europe:  Mrs Duggan believes the cult thought her son was a spy who had infiltrated their group and posed a danger to them. In 2010, Mrs Duggan told the British High Court she had been contacted by a member of the LaRouche movement following her son’s death, who branded the student a “traitor and a spy”. She is hopeful that the coroner will return a verdict of unlawful killing.
“Larouche tried to recruit him, and he was completely new to it,” says Mrs Duggan. “He was also Jewish and British, and when he became critical, and said it was a cult and using mental manipulation, he was in their midst and he became a danger to them, and he was seen as a spy, and then we don’t know what happened to him.”

One line of disappointment:  However, Newsweek has discovered that the pathologist at the heart of the case, Dr David Shove, who first provided the vital evidence in 2003 that Jeremiah had been beaten to death, will not be attending this week’s inquest.
The coroner’s officer, Dave Howard, confirmed to Newsweek that Dr Shove will not be attending the inquest, although he declined to give an explanation for his absence. Witnesses who live in England or Wales must attend an inquest if they are asked to.
One line of not surprising:  He also said that representatives of LaRouche would not be attending, nor would any German police officers or witnesses to Jeremiah’s death, as the coroner does not have authority to summon witnesses from abroad.
It is unclear as to why Dr Shove is unable to attend. Mrs Duggan has said: “I am very disappointed that he cannot be traced as the post mortem is the most important piece of evidence.”

Ted Andromidas Queens College, City University of New York provides some comment about the Bush — Obama — Htler and … hm...

Moving on
The forensic expert added that a “heavy instrument” could have been used to damage the two cars involved, which included dents and a smashed windscreen.
He added: “The only conclusion I can draw sir is it was a set-up. I can find nothing at all to link Jeremiah to those vehicles. The only thing I can link is the sandy substance. My conclusion remains unchanged.
“I have never ever come across anything like this in real life at all.”

And
He added that both vehicles and Mr Duggan appeared to have traces of a wet sandy substance which was not present at the scene and therefore placed them elsewhere before the alleged accident.

He said the damage to the Peugeot, which is claimed to have hit Mr Duggan, appeared to have been caused by a “heavy metallic instrument” or possibly another car rather than a person.
He described damage on the Volkswagen, which is said to have run Mr Duggan over after he jumped out and hit the Peugeot, as “inconsistent”.
Coroner for north London Andrew Walker asked: “Are you saying the damage to the vehicles is unlikely to have been caused by an impact with a person?”
“Yes sir, in my opinion,” Mr Canning repled.
“Is it likely that damage to the vehicle has been placed there?”
“After looking at the photographs the only possible conclusion I could find was that it was placed there and further, that it looks like pre-existing damage that was undertaken prior to this incident.”
“Are you saying this was a constructed road traffic collision?”
“It certainly looks that way, sir.”

AND Mr Canning, who has over a decade of experience working with the Metropolitan Police, said there was no evidence of contact between Mr Duggan and two vehicles – a Peugeot 406 and a Volkswagen Golf – which German investigation found had been involved in his death.

The Guardian…  The family, who were present at the inquest on Tuesday, have been fighting for 12 years for the case to be reopened. They won a victory in December 2012 when the German higher court ruled that the Wiesbaden authorities’ original investigation had been flawed and opened a new inquiry, which is still ongoing.

AndAnd  Jeremiah Duggan, 22, was found dead on a motorway near Wiesbaden on March 27, 2003 after he attended a youth event organised by the LaRouche ‘far-right cult’.
Rebuttal Time
rklindell, Frankfort Maine USA, … LaRouche is a far-left Trotskyite, not far-right.

BBC  Mr Duggan’s father Hugo told the inquest a witness had informed the family about “chaotic scenes” at the Schiller Institute youth event following his son’s death.
He told the court: “All the members were gathered into a room and addressed by

Helga Zepp-LaRouche (the German wife of Lyndon LaRouche).
“At this stage she said, ‘Jeremiah Duggan is dead, we believe he was a spy sent to harm the organisation. I would like you to pack up and go home right away. Don’t talk among yourselves about this and don’t talk to others’.”

And And...   That summer Mr Duggan arranged a meeting with the German ambassador in London to discuss his concerns over the far-right group’s involvement in the lead up to his son’s death, the inquest heard.
Mr Duggan told the court: “The first thing he (the German ambassador) said was, ‘We know all about LaRouche. We have been after him for years’.”
A separate investigation is under way in Germany.

And… Sort of interesting analysis

The obstructive behaviour of the police in the case of Jeremiah Duggan is consistent with the pattern of institutional behaviour in the NSU case. The Institute of Race Relations has been monitoring the NSU case and working alongside NSU-Watch and with lawyers for the victims’ families (who are co-plaintiffs at the Munich trial).[1] The information we discovered through our research concerning the practices of German police and intelligence agencies was, we believed, relevant to the Duggan case, so after contacting the Duggan family we passed it to the British coroner conducting the inquest. The IRR made clear to the coroner that we had no evidence to suggest the NSU were linked to Jeremiah’s death. But at the very least, we argued, Mr and Mrs Duggan were entitled to be supplied with answers to the following questions:

  1. Had state intelligence services infiltrated the Lyndon LaRouche movement?
  2. Was a state informant party to any of the events surrounding Jeremiah’s death?
  3. Could the Hesse state intelligence services be withholding information that could help the authorities in the UK and in Germany to establish the true circumstances of Jeremiah Duggan’s death?

It is now well established, through several German parliamentary inquiries, that intelligence service failures allowed the NSU to carry out its murderous campaign unhindered. This is because the German intelligence services put their need to protect the anonymity of neo-Nazis acting as paid informants for the German state before the homicide investigations of individual and locally-based police departments.

This one gets to the query you always have with the org… beyond the one item of “cult” for its membership, item two brings question two –… what … is … it?

And 

Day Two.

Mr Bayle said: “You have got two vehicles there, there’s quite a lot of damage there’s no forensics on Mr Duggan’s body that compares with the damage that’s on the two vehicles. The police said it’s a traffic accident but to me it looked nothing like a traffic accident.
“If you are going to hit a car and you hit the windscreen and the shards of glass are everywhere there has got to be a transfer of glass, blood on both it seems one on the body the other on the vehicle. There’s nothing, absolutely nothing.”
He added: “It didn’t take me long to look at these photos to say where is the traffic accident then? This is a crime scene.”

[…]

In a written statement read out in court, Alexis Weisberger, a sociology student attending the event for research purposes, said: “He was critical at the beginning but at the end of five days was all that was lost. Eating and sleeping, singing together you end up being exhausted with no power to think for yourself.”
Mr Weisberger added: “He was exhausted and just focusing on doing what they wanted him to do.”

 Guardian

Attendees faced a gruelling schedule of meetings, lectures, one-to-one sessions, chanting sessions and seminars, the inquest heard.
Alexis Weisberger, who was at the event carrying out “sociological research” into the group, said Duggan had many questions about the group’s ideology and beliefs to begin with, but this changed as the conference went on.

And And
Canning told the court that “the only possible conclusion is that it must have been a set-up.”
“Are you saying this was a constructed road traffic collision?” asked Coroner for north London Andrew Walker.
“It certainly looks that way, sir,” replied Canning.
At the time, a German police investigation ruled it was “a suicide by means of a traffic accident. Duggan’s family never accepted the police findings.

And“The one thing I am absolutely sure of is that he was trying to stay alive … if he had not left Paris and not been with those people he would be alive today,” she told the inquest.[…]

The court heard a written statement from Ursula Caberta, a German cult expert. She said the mother of another LaRouche member had been told by her son that Duggan was a spy and a traitor and had been “hunted down”.
In a subsequent conversation the court heard the woman attempted to play down the claims, saying “she did want to say anything more about the matter”.

And

In a written statement read to the court, cult expert Ursula Caberta described how LaRouche member Niels Meyer is said to have told his mother Ingrid: “We have hunted him down.”
In the conversation, Mr Meyer, a bodyguard to cult leader Lyndon LaRouche, is alleged to have added: “It’s right that he (Mr Duggan) is dead. He is a traitor and a spy.”

Later Mrs Meyer sought to play down her previous conversation with Mrs Caberta, the court heard.

And And

Coroner Andrew Walker declined to hear evidence from Chip Berlet, an expert in right-wing movements in the United States. Anthony Metzer QC, acting on behalf of the Duggan family, had wanted to call Mr Berlet to testify on how the methods of the LaRouche organisation would have affected Jeremiah Duggan’s state of mind.

The Corner said that if, as the expert evidence adduced by the Duggan family seemes to suggest, the car accident in Mr Duggan is said to have died was staged, then his state of mind would no longer be relevant to the inquiry.

Day Three, back to the Guardian.

“Jeremiah Duggan was seduced into this organisation on the pretext it was a leftist movement; he was sucked in and revealed himself to the group to be a British Jew … who was then rejected by the movement, who saw him as a spy; as a result action might have been taken.”
The court heard from the former French MP and cult expert Catherine Picard, who told the court that Duggan might have faced intense pressure and psychological violence during the conference, with hours of lectures, one-to-one sessions and more than 30 pages of reading to review every day.
She said: “Jeremiah might have been under the influence or control of the organisation LaRouche which exploited his vulnerability due to geographical isolation in Germany, without members of his family or girlfriend, and played on a potential loss of bearings. […]
Picard was shown notes Duggan made during the conference and said they charted his transformation from able student to someone who was unable to reason for themselves.

“The idea would be to try and confuse completely, like an infantilisation of the person. It’s the feeling somebody who used to have the ability to reason would have felt completely overwhelmed.”

It should be noted that members of this organisation must undergo significant psychological pressure, being subjected to repeated conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic discourse.

And then BBC

Following his death in 2003, German police had said Mr Duggan, 22, of north London, took his own life, prior to the start of a fresh inquest this week.
But, this was “totally rejected” by Mr Walker at Barnet Coroner’s Court.
Recording a narrative verdict, Mr Walker accepted Mr Duggan “received fatal injuries [in] a collision with two cars” on a road near Wiesbaden.

It’s interesting, because once upon a time… on this blog… (back when it was read by anyone) … a person commented with a comment “this from an organization that lead a British student to his suicide”.  I didn’t correct, or half correct, that statement, as it was indeed… a harsh enough analysis.

And so there’s
A statement from the family read outside court said: “We are disappointed that in the face of six separate British and European independent experts covering the fields of pathology and forensic analysis, the coroner preferred the disputed evidence relied upon by the German authorities.
“The pressure should now be put upon the German authorities to ensure this powerful and dramatic narrative verdict leads to deeper investigation in the country where Jeremiah was killed, including the role played of the LaRouche organisation.
“We hope Jeremiah’s legacy will be that the strong message that such extremist organisations exist which target university students for recruitment has been heard so that the dangers they pose can be avoided.”
Erica Duggan, Mr Duggan’s mother, said: “I’m going to fight on.

The beat moves on

But today, a coroner dramatically overturned those findings, saying that LaRouche – which was said to have ‘seduced’ the Jewish student on the pretext that it was left-leaning – ‘may have had a bearing’ on the young man’s death.

And hm… what of this comment?

nellakam, Las Palmas, Spain, about 21 hours ago
The incident happened in Germany which leaves it to German authorities.What has British coroner got to do with any of this? Still delusions of Empire?

Yes.  It’s all about the British Empire, ain’t it?

And

In a statement, his family said: “We wish to express our gratitude… that the fact that he revealed that he was Jewish, British, and questioned the anti-British and antisemitic ideology may have been a factor in his death and put him at risk from those in the organisation; and that he became distressed and sought to leave the conference.”
They expressed their hope that the verdict would serve as a warning to other young people attracted to cults. […]

“I’m going to fight on, but I’m not sure I will do it through the justice system. I would like to think very hard about whether or not the kind of investigations that have gone on in Germany, and also in Britain, have led me to find out how my son really died,” she told MailOnline.
“I know he was destroyed by the LaRouche organisation.”

In the early 1990s, he was convicted for fraud and tax evasion.

I thought that was in the late 1980s, with him serving time into the early 1990s?

AndAnd

Mr Walker ruled out a theory which suggested Mr Duggan had been beaten to death elsewhere before being dumped at what experts described as a “stage-managed” crash site.
But he said there were also a “number of unexplained injuries” suggesting there might have been an “altercation at some stage before his death”.
Mr Duggan’s mother, Erica, shouted “Justice, we want justice” as the verdict was read out.

epilogue:
After the important finding his father said the time was finally right to read the card at a conference on far-right cults held by the family today.
As he opened the red envelope, Mr Duggan exclaimed with delight: “It’s a lighthouse. My father and grandfather and great-grandfather were lighthouse keepers.”
With teary eyes he read the words inside: “Dear Dad, wishing you the happiest of birthdays. Hope this card will make you feel at home. Lots of love, Jeremiah”
His father added: “Well there. That was worth waiting for.”
Mr Duggan said that while disappointed with some aspects of the coroner’s narrative verdict, which Jeremiah’s mother Erica Duggan described as “wishy-washy”, he was glad that, for the first time, LaRouche has been officially mentioned in relation to Jeremiah’s death.
The family are today hosting a conference, Cults, Racism, Doublespeak And The Search For Justice, in Lincoln’s Inn Fields to raise awareness of the threat cults and far-right organisations pose to young people.

 And

A friend of Duggan’s, who asked not to be named but runs the Justice for Jeremiah Twitter and Facebook accounts, told The Local on Friday that “the fact the group has been implicated by the wording of the verdict is a positive step.”
“In an ideal world, the coroner would have ruled a much stronger verdict, which would have put a lot more pressure on the authorities to investigate further.”
But she added that the family and friends “have worked tirelessly for 12 years” and would need time to take stock.
“Erica had really hoped that she’d get the verdict she needed, so she could put the whole thing to bed and move on.
“Everybody in that courtroom, including the coroner, was aware that there was something a lot more sinister that happened to him.”

She had tough words for Germany, saying that Wiesbaden authorities “have let us down. I feel quite shocked at the lack of response.
“One question I’ve been asking myself recently is, what would have happened if the situation were reversed and it happened in the UK?

Danged British Empire thinking.
“I’d like to think that the British authorities would not only have investigated, but acted with a bit more compassion towards the family.”
“I don’t doubt that it was within the German authorities’ ability to do both.”

For what it’s worth, Wikipedia.

Now what?
The Board of Deputies of British Jews has called on foreign secretary Philip Hammond to intervene as a “matter of urgency” to ensure a new independent investigation into Jeremiah Duggan’s death in GermanyAndAnd.

One odd note in this “And what is this thing you call the Larouche Movement?” story:
It also has a bizarre belief that the Tavistock Institute in Hampstead is involved in mind control to exert influence over the British people working with British and American governments, referring to “The Tavistock Smile” as a way to spot this.
Or is that the Cheshire Cat Grin?

China loves the Larouche Movement this much.

William C. Jones, bureau chief of the China Desk of Executive Intelligence Review, a Leesburg, Virginia-based weekly news magazine, was among four lucky participants of the symposium to have received a hardcover copy of Xi’s book from its publisher as a gift.
“This is my third copy already,” Jones told Xinhua. “I have read and reviewed the book. Although the book has been out for long, six months or so, it’s not so well known by many Americans.”
“I think more people should know about it because there are so much confusion and so much distortion about China in the US,” he said.

West backs revival of fascism in Ukraine: Analyst Mike Billington.The Plight of the Migrants: Between ISIL Hate and EU Inaction … Sputnik International… Jerry SteinbergLarouche Celebrates the Soviets for fighting the World War Two.

LaRouche is a veteran of World War II and writes about improving US-Russia relations in the Executive Intelligence Review weekly, published by the LaRouche movement.
LaRouche claims he was used by the US President Ronald Reagan administration as an unofficial “back-channel” for negotiations with the Soviet Union in the 1980s.

It’s worth noting that Webster Tarpley is also a “Sputnik International” citation.

US historian Webster Tarpley also shared the similar idea, stating that the United States created ISIL to use the jihadists as its secret army to destabilize the Middle East.

Story Number Five…  The “Other”

To correct this mistake, Butch – CPA, radio commentator, president of Philippine LaRouche Society (they believe in Lyndon LaRouche’s prophecies of Wall Street and the City of London causing the financial ruin of the Western world and all who come under their influence) – will promise to pray for a constitutional amendment allowing 35-year-olds to run for the second highest position in politics.

And… hm.

ALREADY he’s the most recognizable face on the planet between now and May 2-3, and recognized by peasants as well as presidents, princes, superstars. When Sylvester Stallone, Keanu Reeves, Mark Wahlberg and others come calling, how many more personalities would be lining up if they had the convenience and the conveyance?

From LPAC… the big question no one much cares about… Obama’s Mother — What did she do for a living? 
Brent Bedford of the LaRouche Political Action Committee gave this slide show on Nov. 16, 2011 in Northern Virginia; it has never been published before. Given the nature of the medium, some of the slides are unavoidably blurry. This version is slightly edited.
What I’m going to summarize is a series of articles by Wayne Madsen. They are from the “Wayne Madsen Report.” He’s a former naval intelligence officer, and so he knows some things. He knows how to read these things, and he’s done a profile on Obama’s background, which is probably better than “Obama on the Couch,” if you want to understand why he’s got some of the problems he has.

Another call for Martin O’Malley.  Because someone has to.

the non creation of a new presidency

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

Absent something remarkable, and unlike in 2007 going into 2008 I don’t think this bit of conventional wisdom is inorrect, I don’t see how Hillary Clinton can be stopped as the Democratic nominee.  8 years ago, there was enough of a wedge in the Democratic Elite and misgivings about Clinton to allow for Barack Obama to win the nomination, today they’ve all pretty well aligned with Clinton.

So who do we have touting the possibilities?  Well la de da de da… LINCOLN CHAFFEE!!!  What’s even more impressive… he’s disavowing his vote for the removal of Glass Steagall.

So now the face of the Stop Hillary Clinton improbability consists of… repeatedly disavowed as running but either speculated about ad naseum or courted by activists… Elizabeth Warren and Jerry Brown.  And Bernie Sanders, Jim Webb, Lincoln Chaffee, and Martin O’Malley.

The Larouche Movement is going with Martin O’Malley, sidestepping the past two decades of steadfast support behind the Clinton Machine.
Dan Schmidt reporting.

The confused mumbling of what Martin O’Malley represents, lest you chunk the Larouche Movement and join the O’Malley Movement:

What is required is the creation of a Presidency, (re-phrasing what he was “attempting” at Obama’s inauguration with the “Institution”.) not a “President with followings.” Since we have, certainly, no President, and presently no Presidential candidate qualified to meet the challenges this crisis poses, we must set our intention to creating a Presidency around a candidate.
In that connection, O’Malley is the only one we know of who has the qualifications to head up a new Presidency—not a political party, but a Presidency, which will address the issues of a global water crisis.

He’s very Keplerian, you see…  As they implement NAWAPA …
The solution exists. We are qualified to fill it out. Our mission is to create a Presidency around it.
Does this mean that Martin O’Malley can expect to be hounded by Larouchies wherever he goes?  Or –?  Wins over faint praise by way of comments on the other candidates running with the two major parties…
“You take a case like Rand Paul, this guy’s a Nazi! He’s a Killer! He’s the enemy of civilization!”

STORY NUMBER ONE AND A HALF:
Webster Tarpley Jumps off the Hillary Clinton Bandwagon.
Hillary Clinton has announced her candidacy for President of the United States. While the European press showers her with praise without thinking, Webster G. Tarpley recalls her balance sheet: in all circumstances, she supported war and corporate interests.
Fair enough commentary so far, but I’m stuck at the following: this was true enough in 2008, when Tarpley was stirring about the “PUMA” and arguing some ridiculous notion of an electoral realignment that included Oklahoma in the Democratic column.
Hm... Pardon my ignorance but what is a “LaRouchie”?
Perhaps a better question would be “What is Google?”
ah I know what Google is, but you seem to feel strongly about LaRouche so I thought I’d get your perspective. As far as I know LaRouche is a band.
And a classic from Berkley Breathed introduction to a “Bloom County” collection wraps it all up.

STORY NUMBER TWO:
Where are they now
Then: A longtime resident of Selma, Amelia and her husband Samuel William Boynton began fighting for voting rights as far back as the 1930s. They worked closely with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, allowing students to use their home as a meeting place. Boynton is often considered the catalyst for the Selma march, telling Dr. King he needed to come to the area. On Bloody Sunday, Robinson marched alongside many others as state troopers descended upon them. An image of her beaten unconscious on the ground became one of the day’s lasting images.
Now: At 103 years old, Robinson still has a sharp mind though her mobility is limited. However, she did attend this year’s State of the Union, invited by U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell (D-Al.) Throughout the years, she’s gone to commemorative Bloody Sunday events and served as the vice chairman of the Schiller Institute, founded by Helga Zeppa LaRouche, the wife of controversial figure Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

obamaandcompanyat50th

Yes.  There she is in this photograph marching in memorial with a person that “controversial figure” Lyndon H Larouche Jr has believes is embarking on a Nazi Genocide project…. and all the rest.
So long as Obama remains in office, the danger of general war—including war of thermonuclear extinction—remains far too real to tolerate.
STORY NUMBER THREE
History’s Mysteries…

Illinois… “Biggest Mistakes” of Politics:  Listen to his explanation of space and science here and you’ll understand why Stevenson was doomed when two LaRouche disciples landed on his ticket.).

Belitting some candidates running for local office in Chicago… Putting into the frame of reference of perenial candidates… next to Eugene McCarthy and apparently time has worn out Harold Stassen.

Cleon Skousen’s Five Thousand Year Leap? Really? That’s like plagiarizing Lyndon LaRouche. The choice of material to plagiarize is far worse than the act of plagiarism itself.

Free Speech.  Gotta Love itOver time, efforts to suppress speakers came from representatives of Canada, Japan and other governments. When a telephoned bomb threat disrupted a lecture by Congressman Paul Findley, a critic of Israel, we continued the presentation in a stairwell. When followers of radical Lyndon LaRouche tried to break up a meeting, they were escorted from the premises.

Hm...
If you’re anything like us, you spent this weekend soaking in the finer points of life, knowing North Korea can defile the rest of our Western Capitalist Utopia at any time. We cracked open that 2009 Revana we bought in Napa. We went to the park and lived out the fantasy of stealing every person’s dog. We kissed life on the lips, let her smack us across our faces, and recoiled to proclaim “Worth it, and we’d do it again!”
In the meantime, North Korea was probably changing Mike Seaver’s Wikipedia, setting up a PAC for Lyndon LaRouche, and hacking our browser histories. You know, inspiring revolution where there’s none to be had.

A little spin on a LaRouchie suggestion. Lyndon wanted to ban people who smoke pot from voting. For two years after they quit partaking of spliff.

Story Number Four: United By Tragedy, and... ?

Lyndon LaRouche said that the people of France have begun to fight. They have realized that they must change French policies, which is a revolution in itself. France is mounting a heroic struggle; Germany has not reached that point, but we hope it will. France’s reaction could break into a new revolutionary improvement in the French economy and the French nation. Take the French situation now, and look at other parts of Europe, such as Greece. A revolution is occurring in France.

No.  Lyndon larouche still remains irrelevant to the situation at hand.

Story Number Five:  Jon Stewart dissects Vladimir Putin‘s government and propaganda machine.  Swarming about the mass we have this “ignore the log in our eyes for the dust mite in your eyes” malarky from William Jones to Russia TV.

And the beat moves on.

STORY NUMBER SIX:

In push for openness on terrorism, Lynch unlikely hero of conspiracy theorists
Only 17 members have cosponsored the resolution proposed last December by Lynch and Representative Walter B. Jones of North Carolina, which calls for release on grounds that “the families of the victims and the people of the United States deserve answers about the events and circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001, attacks.† In the meantime, the quest is making for some strange bedfellows. Lynch has become a hero of sorts to conspiracy theorists who assert US government complicity in the worst terrorist attacks in American history. Some of them, according to Lynch, show up at his town hall meetings to ask about the secret pages and interrupt the events to discuss their multiple theories about what really happened on 9/11, including that Israel was to blame for the terrorist attacks. One of these groups is the political action committee headed by longtime activist Lyndon LaRouche. LaRouche, the 92-year-old New Hampshire native whose anti-establishment movement has roots in the leftist activism of the 1960s, held a webcast last week about the issue (and for good measure called for the removal of the British monarchy and the impeachment of President Obama as the only way to save the world from imminent destruction)…. -Larouche historical destiny as a side show here.

Then there’s The recent world historical Schiller Conference in Manhattan
With additional “Kremlinology” found here.
1. Nancy Spannaus has been tossed off the NEC (first time for her in 45 years or so, but of course husband Ed has been thrown off the NEC moire times than Lyn can count).
2. Tony Papert is now in charge of Editorial, sworn to make up Nancy’s deficiencies with his own very special gifts.
3. No word yet on how the staff of Editorial is taking this, although I can certainly guess.
4. Word is that Nancy’s monumental gaffe was not to cover Helga’s latest “initiative” with the unrestrained enthusiasm it deserved.

STORY NUMBER SEVEN
From the Conservative National Review blog…

Toward the end of today’s Impromptus, I have a note on Lyndon LaRouche and his followers. I saw a few of them (the followers) on the streets of New York the other day. Hadn’t seen them in ages.
Yeah.  No reason to think about them after the “prosecution” / persecution.  Now you’re more likely to sledge through the “persecution” of murderer Mumia Abu Jamal — who, incidentally has more people clamoring for his “Political Prisoner” angle than Larouche ever had.

Hm.  This is the equivalent of Lyndon Larouche meeting with the President’s staff of France, Britain and Italy.
In the storyline they give, Larouche was in “talks” with Obama about the creation of an Institution.  Fell through.  They then announced Obama was Hitler.
