`When Statisticians Have Wished To Lie':
The Lesson of the FCIC Report
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

February 11, 2011—The Federal Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC), has exposed a pattern of official and related lies, lies without which it would not have been possible for the U.S. government, and others, such as those of Europe, to have continued the practice of that reckless financial gambling which had reigned in U.S. and European economic policy since the time that the assassination of President John F. Kennedy cleared the way for the U.S. launching of ten years of folly of the protracted war in Indo-China. The assassination of that President's brother, Robert, who had been a likely victor in the 1968 Presidential election, permitted the continued reign of the folly which had been permitted by President Kennedy's assassination, a folly which was never reversed, ``come rain or shine,'' since the 1969-1973 term of a wretched President Richard Nixon, and, notably, the 1977-1980 term of that instrument of a spectacularly ``uncreative destruction,'' President ``Jimmy'' Carter.
The 1968 election of President Nixon had cleared the way for the August 1971 cancellation of President Roosevelt's 1944 Bretton Woods, fixed-exchange-rate system; the 1976 election of David Rockefeller's Trilateral Commission puppet, President Carter, led, in turn, into that process of looting the U.S. economy which led, over two decades, into the 1999 repeal of the 1933 Glass-Steagall Law....

  • 'When Statisticians Have Wished To Lie':
    The Lesson of the FCIC Report
    by Lyndon LaRouche.

    The Federal Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, a.k.a. the Angelides Commission, has exposed a pattern of official lies, without which it would not have been possible for the U.S. government and others, to have continued the practice of the reckless financial gambling which has dominated U.S. and European economic policy since the time of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The 1968 election of Richard Nixon cleared the way for the August 1971 cancellation of FDR's 1944 Bretton Woods system, the beginning of a process which led to the 1999 repeal of Glass-Steagall, which, in turn, triggered the careening of the U.S. economy into the state of hyperinflationary bankruptcy which now grips the trans-Atlantic community. Now, the Erinyes are unloosed! The time of the would-be Mussolinis in the state capitols has already gone, quicker than they could learn to say 'Egypt.'


  • From the Magreb to Madison:
    The Global Mass Strike Comes to Wisconsin

    The global mass strike, which has already swept the Presidents of Tunisia and Egypt from power, and has expanded throughout the Maghreb into Southwest Asia, has now hit the streets of the United States. For the past week, tens of thousands of protesters have surrounded the State Capitol in Madison, Wisc., in defiance of the governor's plans to rip up public sector workers' collective bargaining rights, as part of his murderous austerity drive. Demonstrators in Madison carried banners reading, 'We are all Egyptians' and 'Mubarak and Ben Ali are gone, Walker is next.'


  • Egypt Is Everywhere!
    Put Price Controls on Food and Enact GlassSteagall
    by Helga Zepp-LaRouche.

    Politicians have obviously not understood it yet, but a revolt has broken out worldwide against hunger, outrageous food prices, glaring injustice, corruption, oppression, and reactionary elites, all of which rob the youth of their future. The 2011 uprisings in North Africa and Southwest Asia, as well as the mass demonstrations in the U.S., express the popular realization that, without republican freedom, people will have neither food, nor hope for the future.
  • Prevent 'Biblical Exodus' from Africa:
    Build Water and Energy Infrastructure

    The thousands of Tunisian refugees flooding onto the small Italian island of Lampedusa, sounded alarm bells throughout the capitals of Europe. The refugee wave, driven by a devastating economic crisis, will soon expand to Egypt and other countries, if policies do not change.
    • The Sicily-Tunisia Tunnel:
      Link to Africa

      Italian economist Dr. Nino Galloni gave this presentation at a Schiller Institute conference, on 'The Eurasian Land-Bridge Is Becoming a Reality!' held Sept. 15-16, 2007, in Kiedrich, Germany.


  • Defeating a Superior Enemy:
    Frederick the Great, and the Battles of Rossbach & Leuthen

    Prior to the onset World War I, Gen. von Schlieffen, chief of the German General Staff, undertook a series of studies, based on the defeat, in 216 B.C., by Hannibal, of the numerically superior forces of the Roman army, at the battle of Cannae. One of the studies was a short analysis of the Battle of Leuthen, fought by Frederick the Great, in the Winter of 1757, also against significantly superior forces.
