After Ireland’s ‘No’ to The Lisbon Treaty: Cancel All EU Treaties; Build a Europe of the Fatherlands!  

by Helga Zepp-LaRouche

Helga Zepp-LaRouche points out that the Irish voters’ rejection of the new European Union Treaty (Lisbon Treaty), which was to transform Europe into an oligarchical and imperial dictatorship, now cannot go into effect as planned on Jan. 1, 2009. This gives Europe’s nations an excellent opportunity to extricate themselves from the corset of every EU treaty already in effect, and to opt instead for a system of Europe-wide cooperation of sovereign republics, in the spirit of Charles de Gaulle.


How To Shape History  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche warns people who are depressed because Hillary Clinton was forced to withdraw her candidacy for the Democratic Presidential nomination, that they are wrong. He notes that her retirement is not the end, but only the beginning of the real contest yet to be fought. People make this error of judgment because of their failure to understand the way in which real history works. By understanding how history actually works, the same depressed people would be able to see that “Hillary might still become President!”

by John Hoefle

But, as LaRouche warned, this bailout program is spreading hyperinflation.

LaRouche’s three-point plan is now our only hope.
