A Trans-Atlantic Call: Emergency Solution to the Global Breakdown Crisis  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., Helga Zepp-LaRouche, and Jacques Cheminade

A statement issued Aug. 8, by Lyndon LaRouche, Helga Zepp-LaRouche, and Jacques Cheminade: The entire global financial system has collapsed, and while the center of the crash is in the trans-Atlantic region, there is no region of the world that is immune from the disintegration that is already under way. A radical policy change is the only way to avoid a total breakdown of civilization, beginning with the immediate removal of Barack Obama from the U.S. Presidency.

An Emergency Address to the Nation: LaRouche—There Is Only One Solution  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche was interviewed on Aug. 5 by Alicia Cerretani of LPAC-TV, in the aftermath of Obama’s “debt deal” establishing a Super-Congress, with anti-Constitutional powers over the U.S. economy. “The legislation passed through means the certain destruction of civilization, he warned, “not only of our nation, but of others. Unless this is repudiated, the United States as a nation no longer exists, and that’s in the short term, not the long term.”

LaRouche on ‘The Pact of the Human Soul’  

by Alicia Cerretani and Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

In a poignant dialogue between two generations, one quite old, the other very young, Lyndon LaRouche and Alicia Cerretani discuss what it will take to shift civilization away from the dark age it now faces.

After Obama’s Hitler Coup: The Guts To Impeach  

President Obama has committed high crimes and misdemeanors against the U.S. Constitution that warrant his immediate impeachment. In the course of the Congressional debates on the Libya War, and the more recent Super-Congress debt ceiling deal, scores of Members of Congress openly acknowledged that the President had violated his oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution.

Why Congress Is Stupid: Congressional Research Service Circulates Trash on Glass-Steagall  

by Paul Gallagher

With a growing number of rebellious Members of Congress debating Glass-Steagall, a report supposedly “debunking” the measure has been issued by the Congressional Research Service. Its “arguments” are those bought and paid for by Wall Street.

Bodies in the Streets: Obama Debt Deal Pushes States, Localities into Fiscal Chaos  

by Marcia Merry Baker and Carl Osgood

U.S. states and localities face a life-or-death situation for millions of their citizens: losses of medical treatment, fire and police services, sanitation, housing, and food. This is the catastrophe that LaRouche warned of in June.

Glass-Steagall Is the Solution: $5 Trillion Wiped Out as Hyperinflation Looms  

by Helga Zepp-LaRouche

The capitulation to the Wall Street and London banks has done nothing to prevent a further worsening of the trans-Atlantic financial crisis; the only way out is to replace the bankrupt system with a global Glass-Steagall standard.

Systemic Collapse Targets Italy

History

Britain’s Surrogate War Against the Union, 1861-65  

by William Jones

The most important aspect of the Civil War conflict has largely been forgotten: that the war “was the second military phase of the political battle which raged between Britain and the United States from the time a formal ceasefire was concluded at Yorktown in 1781.”

Science

The Strategy of Creativity: Creativity, Passion & Strategy  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“A science-driven progress of a modern human culture, is the most powerful, and therefore dominant agent of the reigning quality of change known to us,” LaRouche writes. “All life is creative, but, only mankind is known to us as capable of voluntary creative initiative.”

The End of the Shuttle Era: Does Manned Space Flight Have a Future in America?  

by Marsha Freeman

The Space Shuttle program did not end because it was too expensive to operate, nor because it was unsafe, or technologically obsolete. Its demise is the fruit of four decades of failed White House policies, which a compromising and cowardly Congress refused to reverse.
