LaRouchePac

Aug. 26 (EIRNS)-Lyndon LaRouche today issued an emergency call for the
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."

Permalink LaRouche: Putin Can Change the Game with Syria Intervention

LaRouchePac

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.

Permalink Obama Prevails in Senate for Iran Nuclear Deal

by Stephen Lendman

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.

  • White House Petition Asks Obama to Keep 2007 Promise to Label GMOs - GMO labeling could soon be illegal

    "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.


  • Flashpoint in Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks World War III by Stephen Lendman

    Sephen Lendman called the Ukraine conflict “the most significant post-WW II geopolitical crisis.” He warned that “escalating it risks global conflict.” Viewed from the perspective of 22 highly-credentialed analysts who have contributed to this anthology, Obama's pivot is global, in pursuit of unchallenged worldwide dominance, leading to multiple direct and proxy wars. According to Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Treasury Secretary under President Reagan, Washington does not only set the world on a path of war but also endangers world peace by its recklessness. The US administration – with the consent of its NATO partners – expanded the Alliance into Eastern Europe, placed anti-ballistic missiles at the Russian border in Poland and withdrew from the ABM treaty. Beyond that, the West unleashed a propaganda war, blaming Putin for the entire crisis. But so far, the Russian government has not had to do anything...

  • The Politics of Empire: The US, Israel and the Middle East by James Petras

    This book provides a unique conception of US empire building, linking overseas expansion with 1) the growth of a police state and declining living standards; 2) advanced technologically driven global spying on adversaries and allies with declining economic competitiveness and military defeats; 3) large scale, long term commitments of economic and military resources to wars in the Middle East to the detriment of major corporate interests, but for the benefit of a pariah state, Israel; and 4) the power of a foreign state (Israel) over US policy via its domestic pro-Zionist power configuration. The interplay of these four specific features of US empire building has no past or present precedent among imperial states. Because of Israeli-Zionist influence on US imperial policy, the main targets and objectives of imperial wars are located in the Middle East. The objectives of Israeli and Zionist- influenced US policy in the Middle East is to enhance Israeli regional power and the dispossession of the Palestinian people. The trillion dollar cost of US wars for Israel, however, has alienated the vast majority of US society and driven a wedge between the political elite backing new wars for Israel, and the public prioritizing of domestic economic welfare...
