An Open Letter to Congress[PDF version of this article]
from Lyndon LaRouche
The following letter appeared as a LaRouche PAC ad in the March 12, 2014 issue of the Washington Times.
President Barack Obama must be immediately impeached. As the following attests, during his time in office President Obama has lied repeatedly to the American people and the Congress and has subverted the U.S. Constitution on behalf of foreign interests—the British/Saudi axis—and its allies. In his recent adventure in Ukraine, he is about to lie the United States into World War III. Those who rationalize and cower from the truth are called to judgment on behalf of the future of mankind.
J'Accuse! If we are to survive, Obama must be impeached now.
The entire London-Wall Street financial system is hopelessly bankrupt and in its final death spiral. Faced with this imminent disintegration, London and Wall Street are determined to use Barack Obama to militarily confront Russia and China, which, as any sane person can see, risks World War III. This is the actual dynamic driving the crisis in Central Europe. The only way to stop it is to impeach Barack Obama.
J'Accuse! Under the guise of Obamacare, Obama has put in place a system of medical rationing modeled on Hitler's T-4 program. Obama lied that his program would improve the health of all Americans. He said there would be no rationing of health care and those who liked their present insurance and physician could keep them. His disinformation machine ruthlessly attacked those who demonstrated that Obamacare's IPAB cost-containment provisioning would deny medical care based on cost—effectively killing the very sick, the chronically ill, and the elderly.
It is now admitted that he lied on all counts about his program which generously subsidizes insurance companies and Wall Street. This program, in its intention and implementation, is a crime indictable under the post-World War II Nuremberg Tribunal which defined inadequate provision of surgical and medical care as a crime against humanity.
J'Accuse! President Obama had conducted and expanded wars without authorization of Congress based on lies and deceit. In 2008, Barack Obama campaigned on the promise of ending George W. Bush's purposeless wars. Instead, he has expanded the theaters of warfare using the same lying propaganda techniques employed by Dick Cheney. On March 19, 2011 Barack Obama committed U.S. military forces to a bombing campaign against Libya without Congressional authority. The result was the overthrow by assassination of Gaddafi, accompanied by the expansion of Saudi-directed jihadists throughout the Middle East. Obama went to sleep when the U.S. compound in Benghazi was attacked, and both he and his administration lied repeatedly about that attack to Congress and the American people.
Obama was about to repeat his Libyan intervention in Syria when a public outcry in the United States and Russia's intervention backed him down. He and his British/Saudi cohorts are re-calibrating to revisit the same war plan for Syria, without Congressional approval, shortly. These policies have put the Middle East in flames and laid the groundwork for perpetual religious war between Sunni and Shia Muslims, resulting in mass genocide.
J'Accuse! Obama has continued a policy of bailing out Wall Street banks and paying for it by looting the productive capacity of the United States, while claiming that he is the worst enemy of Wall Street's fat cats. He has promised Wall Street that he will block a return to Glass-Steagall banking standards and cut entitlement spending, including Medicare and Social Security. In August of 2011, through the Budget Control Act, Obama usurped the powers of Congress with the sequester agreement, setting up a super committee to dictate financial austerity measures with the sequester budget cuts as a backup mechanism. In the face of a net loss of 800,000 jobs and the elimination of 11 million people from the labor force, Obama claims that we are in an economic recovery.
J'Accuse! Obama's Green agenda is causing worldwide food shortages and depleting the nation's water supplies which threaten deterioration in living conditions and death due to starvation. He has refused to take the emergency measures necessary to solve the water and food crises now hitting the nation. While the states west of the Mississippi are in historic drought conditions, Obama has dismantled existing water projects and refuses to fund new ones like the North American Water and Power Alliance (NAWAPA). While the world is facing the greatest shortage of food in generations, Obama insists on diverting a huge portion of America's corn crop to biofuels.
J'Accuse! Obama has threatened the nation's economic future by destroying its technological capacity. He has dismantled the most advanced space exploration programs of NASA. He has cut the funding for fusion research and development. Instead, he had diverted government funds and resources to green technologies financed by his Wall Street cronies.
J'Accuse! Obama has usurped for himself powers not designated in the U.S. Constitution as if he were a dictator. In his State of the Union Address on January 28, 2014, Obama announced that he would simply forego Congressional approval for major aspects of his agenda and rule instead by executive decree.
J'Accuse! Obama has assumed the power to order and carry out assassinations, including of American citizens, in violation of the U.S. Constitution and international law. He lied that U.S. drone strikes only target top leaders of Al-Qaeda and their allies. Recent revelations in the press show that the Administration has no idea who it is killing through so-called signature strikes, although the killing continues.
J'Accuse! Obama has ordered general surveillance of the American people in violation of the U.S. Constitution. While lying to the American people about the extent of his surveillance programs, Obama seeks jail terms for those who dare to expose his constitutional violations. The Edward Snowden revelations show that every American's privacy is compromised by both the NSA and its partner spies in Britain, and systematic targeting of political opponents through these means has been and is underway.
J'Accuse! Obama is pursuing a policy of thermonuclear confrontation with Russia and China when there is no cause for military conflict between the United States and these nations. He has sought confrontation with China with his Asia pivot policy. He has continued and escalated the policy of militarily surrounding Russia through NATO expansion and deployment of missile defense systems in Europe.
This has escalated with the current crisis in Ukraine.
On March 6, 2014 Barack Obama issued an Executive Order declaring that the United States is in a state of emergency and that the United States must take measures against Russia in defense of an illegitimate government imposed by Nazis in Ukraine. Obama has lied systematically about the entire course of events in Ukraine: U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland dictated who would head the Ukrainian government. The Nazi enforcers who imposed this government have been called freedom fighters in the Obama Administration's propaganda offensive.
Tolerance of Obama's lies and policies has resulted not only in systemic subversion of our Constitution and laws—it has brought the United States to the brink of extinction. Is Congress really more afraid of its financial supporters on Wall Street and Obama's propaganda and money machine than it is of annihilation through World War III?
The time for action is now. Impeach him now.
Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.
