immediate instituting of Glass-Steagall full bank separation worldwide, starting
in the United States.
"As of now," he said, "Wall Street is plummeting to a general breakdown
crisis. It is already underway and it is unstoppable. Wall Street is hopelessly
bankrupt. We must, therefore, mobilize in anticipation to force the United States
Federal Government to stop the financial crash from bringing down the real
economy and the nation with it."
Sept. 2 (EIRNS)-Amid widespread reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin is about to intervene militarily in Syria to defend the sovereign government of President Bashar Assad, against the genocidal lunatics of the Islamic State (ISIS), Lyndon LaRouche has thrown his support behind Putin. A Russian military intervention at this time would be a "strategic game changer," that would crucially frustrate President Barack Obama's plans for a military confrontation with Moscow.
Over the past 48 hours, news reports from a wide range of venues have all indicated that Putin is about to dispatch Russian fighter planes and as many as 2,000 Russian pilots and support personnel to Syria, to defend the country against the ongoing ISIS onslaught. A Syrian newspaper, close to the Assad government, reported that Russia is planning to build a new naval facility on the Mediterranean coast near the city of Latakia, and that Russian air force personnel are moving into air bases on the outskirts of Damascus, and are soon to launch air operations against ISIS and other jihadist rebels in coordination with the Syrian air force. According to one U.S. intelligence source, Russia has been secretly negotiating with Israel to avert a confrontation, and has been also conferring with Iran over the coordination of support for the Assad government. In recent days, the Daily Telegraph has confirmed that ISIS has been using mustard gas and other chemical weapons in attacks on towns in both northern Syria and in the Kurdish Region of Iraq.

Barbara Mikulski (D. MD) became the 34th US senator declaring support for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA) - defeating Republicans, Democrat hardliners, Israel and AIPAC’s $50 million propaganda campaign. Its intensive lobbying and ad blitz came up short.
Mikulski’s statement showed she’s no profile in courage. Instead of forthrightly rejecting anti-Iranian hate-mongering, endorsing what lessens chances for greater Middle East war, she called herself “an unabashed and unwavering supporter of Israel” - ignoring its blood-drenched history, apartheid much worse than South Africa’s, and decades of ruthless persecution of millions of Palestinians, defenseless against its killing machine.
People are running away not from the regime of Bashar Assad, but from Islamic State, which seized large areas in Syria and Iraq, and are committing atrocities there. That is what they are escaping from," RIA Novosti quoted Vladimir Putin as saying on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok.
“I think the crisis was absolutely expected,” President Vladimir Putin told journalists at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok.

"It’s time for President Obama to keep his 2007 promise to label GMOs. In his own words, Obama declared it was our ‘right to know’ what we are eating, and we agree. The petition comes at a crucial turning point in the fight for GMO labeling, as the notorious ‘DARK Act‘ that would make GMO labeling illegal has been approved by the House of Representatives and is moving towards the Senate. The fate of the legislation, officially known as the ‘Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act,’ could soon come down to Obama’s signature (or veto). In other words, it’s now more essential than ever that we bring Obama’s 2007 promise to the national spotlight. Otherwise, we could soon see the same President who promised GMO labeling sign off on a bill that would make it illegal.
