Obama at the Crossroads:
The Unitary Executive Issue
by Nancy Spannaus
Sept. 5With his signature drive for Nazi health care in shambles, and a large proportion of the American people in a mass strike revolt against the Administration, President Barack Obama has arrived at a crossroads. On the one side stand Wall Street and London, and their representatives in the Administration, who are demanding that the President exert dictatorial powers, as established by Vice President Dick Cheney and President George W. Bush, under the Unitary Executive theory, on behalf of their fascist austerity drive. On the other side, stands Obama himself, who wants to defend his prerogatives as President of the United States against any encroachments.
It is this friction within the Obama Administration which will determine the immediate future course of the United States, and thus, of civilization itself, said Lyndon LaRouche today....
This Week's Cover
- Obama at the Crossroads:
The Unitary Executive Issue
There is a sharp fault line in the Obama Administration between those out to save the Obama Presidency, versus those committed to the London/Wall Street radical austerity plan, which demands dictatorship. This latter grouping advocates the concept of the Unitary Executive, a doctrine of imperial law, as exercised by former Vice President Cheney and his puppet George W. Bush.
- The Truth Will Out:
Britain's Euthanasia Scandal
In April, Lyndon LaRouche charged that President Obama's health-care policy was a copy of Hitler's cost-cutting dictum that 'lives unworthy of life' be granted a 'mercy death,' including death panels to determine which categories of people could live, and which should die. Now, LaRouche's charges have been backed up by a bombshell from Great Britain.
- The Wennberg Dartmouth Atlas Hoax:
The Relation of Frailty and Poverty to Health-Care Needs
Part 2 of a study by Dr. Ned Rosinsky, M.D., exposing the fraud of the 'Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care 2008,' which provides the ideological underpinnings for the Nazi health plan promoted by the Obama Administration. By manipulating statistics to eliminate the effects of poverty and frailty on health-care costs, Obama's economic behaviorists claim they can cut Medicare and related health-care costs by 30%.
- 'Recovery' Hype Grows Shriller, as Fear and Paralysis Spread
The recovery propaganda, which claims that the U.S. bailout/stimulus process is working, and that a recovery is underway, is an outrageous fabrication. And the bailed-out banks are making profits: When the fleas are doing well, it's not a good sign for the dog.
- A Dialogue with Helga Zepp-LaRouche
Following her Aug. 21 webcast speech, Helga Zepp-LaRouche, candidate for Chancellor of Germany of the Civil Rights Solidarity Movement (BüSo), answered questions for over two hours. A selection is presented here.
- Crazy Arnie's 2009 'Great California Fire Sale'
California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger staged a clownish 'garage sale,' in which all manner of state properties were auctioned off, in a pathetic attemp to raise money to fill the state's vast budget deficit. Already, $60 billion has been cut from the FY09-10 budget, as Arnie delivers for his Wall Street masters.
Fed Crimes Cannot Be Buried
Lyndon LaRouche warns that any effort to cover up the crimes committed by the Federal Reserve Bank, during the Bush and Obama administrations, will be 'tantamount to treason.'
- Mass Strike Process Continues To Expand
- Leo Kramer
Leo Kramer, a traditional religious American Jew, has been a strong advocate for the rights of the Palestinians, and has worked in the U.S. and the Middle East to improve the lives of those suffering in Gaza.
