LaRouche Webcast: Senate Needs Guts To Defend Nation from Nazi Takeover

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

LaRouche issued a sharp warning to the nation in his Jan. 11 webcast, stating at the outset: “As a great American patriot once said, ‘These are times that try men’s souls.’ These are grim times. We have presently going on, in the Senate, a hearing of a man who lies: Sam Alito. The man’s a liar. He’s a member of the Federalist Society, which is a society assembled around the ideas and influence of a man, Carl Schmitt, who crafted the Adolf Hitler Administration.... And you have Senators who should have more guts, who are waffling, or being weak, in dealing with this fact. There is no honest debate about bringing Adolf Hitler and his tradition into the government of the United States”!

Those Financial ‘Good News’ Stories for 2005 Are Lies

by Lothar Komp

The fact that the world financial system did not collapse in 2005 is just about all that can be said about the “successes” of that year. Hedge funds, the mortgage bubble, and derivatives speculation all portend a systemic collapse of dramatic proportions.

Stop Hitler!


In the Jan. 6, 2006 EIR, in “The Case of Baltimore: Deindustrialization Creates Death Zones,” William Donald Schaefer was erroneously identified as Mayor of Baltimore when plans for Baltimore real estate development swindles were formulated in the mid-1950s by the Greater Baltimore Committee (Baltimore’s 100 largest financial and other businesses). Schaefer’s Mayoral term in fact ran from 1971-1986. In 1955, Schaefer was elected to the Baltimore City Council from the 5th District, and remained there until he became City Council President in 1967, where he served until he became Mayor. Under Mayor Schaefer, the initial, stalled redevelopment projects of the Greater Baltimore Committee, the Charles Center and Inner Harbor projects, were completed—the first of many more to come.
