Another Thing George W. Bush Does Not Know: The American System of Political-Economy  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche examines the faulty systemic assumptions underlying a recent proposal addressing the global economic crisis by Henry C.K. Liu. Liu’s “obvious systemic error ... is the commonplace academic’s folly, of failing to take into account the absolute difference between, on the one side, the history of the American System of political-economy, upon which the existence of the U.S.A. was founded, and, on the opposite side, the historical origins of those polluting effects of central banking systems of all European nations, up to the present day.”

by Muriel Mirak-Weissbach

Once the U.S. Congress had capitulated on Oct. 10 and voted a resolution—albeit with significant opposition—authorizing President George W. Bush to wage war on Iraq, the idea spread that war is now “inevitable.” But this actually marked the start of a new phase, in which the war can still be stopped.

Democrats Now Venture to the Dark Side of the Moon  

by Jeffrey Steinberg and Scott Thompson

Unification Church leader Reverend Sun Myung Moon has been buying up near-bankrupt political operations in the Democratic Party and among the remnants of the civil rights movement and Muslims, just as he bought up the Falwells and other right-wing elements in the 1980s and ’90s. It’s time past due for another Congressional investigation.
