Dick Cheney’s Imminent Political Crash Landing  

by Jeffrey Steinberg

It is widely known around Washington Republican circles that Vice President Cheney holds Lyndon LaRouche personally responsible for most of his election-year woes. Every time a House or Senate Democrat, or an establishment media pundit raises a question about Halliburton patronage, the Valerie Plame leak, Ahmed Chalabi’s disinformation mill, or the non.existent Saddam weapons of mass destruction, Cheney sees LaRouche’s face before his eyes, and goes wild. The question now is, can the Democrats break loose from the Democratic National Committee’s corrupt acquiescence in Cheney’s policies, and present a real alternative to voters in November?

Hans Koschnick Poses a Question Which the July Democrats Must Also Answer

What Koschnick Said

by Marcia Merry Baker

The urgency of Lyndon LaRouche’s call is shown by two developments: the breakdown in the nation’s inland navigation system, and the particular opportunity to reverse this process, provided by the Corps’ new proposal before Congress, for authorization to refurbish the 37 locks and dams on the Upper Mississippi River and Illinois Waterway system.

by William F. Wertz, Jr.

Part 1 of a series. Founded by Nazis in 1937, the National Synarchist Union (NSU) operated with the Spanish Falange and the Japanese militarists.
