LaRouche Announces
The Role He Will Play
Once Obama Goes

by the Editors

[PDF version of this article]

July 9—Lyndon LaRouche kicked off the July 6 edition of the LaRouche Political Action Committee (LPAC) Weekly Report with a special announcement, that is bound to send shockwaves through the political landscape in the United States.[1]

Referring to the dialogue he held with U.S. leading economists, and representatives of China, Russia, and India on April 29, LaRouche declared that the program he outlined in that event formed the basis of an operating agreement, a program, which would kick in immediately upon the Constitutional removal of President Obama from office.[2]

LaRouche began his discussion this way:

"This particular event has proven to be one of the most important strategic developments in recent times, because it established, not just for those persons, but with institutions in general, a pattern which sets the pace for what would follow, if the impeachment or ousting of President Obama were to occur on time.

"Under those conditions, as I now know what they are, I would play a key role in a post-Obama government, not as a member of the government, but as an advisor with many connections, pulling many strings together, to advise on how we bring the world out of the present mess.

"The dangerous part of this: If that does not occur somewhere between late July and late September, the United States will disintegrate. Europe will probably disintegrate before the United States, Western Europe. The Atlantic region as a whole will disintegrate. And then, as a result of the degree of collapse of the world economy, in the trans-Atlantic region, the trans-Pacific and Indian Ocean regions will collapse, too. This would bring on a prolonged new dark age, after which, probably, we will have, instead of 6.8 billion people on this planet, we will have less than 2 billion. That's the process."

"This is a multi-generation process to dominate the entire century, unless we get rid of Obama, now! That is not an option; it's the only thing that will enable us to maintain civilization. We have to understand that presently, economically, the United States is in a state of precipitating, total collapse—physical economic collapse. And everything Obama does is going to continue to make that situation worse."

The Onrushing Collapse

"Now the collapse is already scheduled, under present developments, and everybody, I think, in leading circles of the world, now knows this. We are now looking at a late-July-August general collapse of the entire world financial-monetary system. It is now happening.

"So therefore, we have to get Obama out, before that collapse occurs. Because once the collapse occurs—imagine: A collapse of this type is not a depression, it is a condition in which, as in Germany, in the Fall of 1923, money ceases to exist. So, without the bailout of Germany, after the collapse the Weimar hyperinflation, there would have been no Germany. Now, we are facing a situation, where, who is going to bail out collapsed nations, is now up for question. The British can't do it. The British are in a worse state of collapse than we are. They just have the political power to cover up what they are doing, and their political power is limited by their ownership of Barack Obama, who is their stooge.

"Now, if Obama goes down, suddenly—very suddenly—because over 80% of the U.S. citizenry wants Obama out! They have decided that this is not a George W. Bush problem, this is an Obama problem. Yes, George W. Bush was no damned good, but this is worse! And the majority of the population knows it. What you have, is that the institutions of the Congress, and parts of the Administration, do not know it, or they do not want to know it.

"So, if you get Obama out, by getting him to take a hike, that would immediately eliminate all the elements of the Obama Administration, essential elements which are specifically Obama: Geithner, Bernanke, all the other thugs and slimeballs—they're out! What do you have? You have a remaining Federal government. You have a remaining Constitution."

Glass-Steagall on the Agenda

"It would mean that we would get through immediately—because it's popular; over 80% of the population wants it—a Glass-Steagall reform. Under a Glass-Steagall reform, while it is still possible to prevent a collapse of the system absolutely, we could save the United States immediately. We are not going to bring prosperity suddenly, but we are going to be able to make choices which will stabilize the nation socially, and start the roll of progress.

"If we just wipe out all this worthless money, and stick to a Glass-Steagall standard, the Federal government will then be able to launch an authorization of credit, an issue, under which we launch a set of programs: We can take banks which are essentially bankrupt, and put them under bankruptcy protection for reorganization; we can recover those banks by loaning them Federal money in trust, for them to continue to conduct their business. We will have guidelines on what they will use that money for. It will be largely for infrastructure projects which are necessary to develop industry in general, industry and agriculture. And that should be the priority. And we will also have it available for other necessary things, to staunch the flow of blood, in terms of economic blood.

"So in that period, we still have an opportunity, right now, to save the United States, and if we save the United States, I can guarantee that we will have partnership in countries such as Russia, China, and India, and also, probably, if you do it in time, you will save Germany; you could save France—the current President of France is not in a secure position now, so he could be changed—and you have forces in northern Italy, which will be useful.

"So therefore, we would have the combination, immediately, of the United States; you would have on the Asian side, not only Eurasian Russia; you would have South Korea, you would have Japan, you would have China, you would have India, and you would have other countries associated with the Pacific Basin or the Indian Ocean Basin. With that combination, and with certain countries in Europe, and with the United States, we have the ability to save this system. This is our last chance.

"Now, my role in this—since I will be 88 years of age on Sept. 8—is not to become President; that is not really a career opportunity for me at this time. But I do have the knowledge, which other people do not have, relevant for this situation. And I have collaborative relations with people in various countries, that, if Obama is out, I can see very clearly a probable chain-reaction under which we can recover. And I have a very specific role to play, in organizing the economic aspect of that recovery."

Why Obama Has To Be Removed

In the course of the dialogue with EIR's John Hoefle and Nancy Spannaus, LaRouche came back to the question of Obama's ouster:

"... [W]e have to understand this: That Obama is an instrument of sabotage, of the United States, to prevent the United States from taking those actions which are inherent in our Constitutional structure, which would save us, and civilization in general. Now, the people behind this, are not loyal to the people of the United Kingdom. The group that controls it, is the royal family, whose access is Lord Jacob Rothschild. Now, Rothschild is not a figure in a personal sense, but he is a figure in the sense that he is, currently, the central point of relevance, since 1971—since the collapse of the dollar in 1971—he has been the reference point for an international monetary-financial imperial system. This imperial system has branches in all parts of the world—Brazil, like the Inter-Alpha Group is an example of this. So therefore, that's the empire.

"Now, our intention is, or should be, to sink that empire. Shut it down and bankrupt it, and put the power back in the sovereign nation-states, or in an alliance of a group of sovereign nation-states, which are now going to bring the planet back into order and get rid of this imperialism: that imperialism, we are getting rid of.

"As long as Obama is able to influence a circle of stupid people in the United States, who will follow his leadership, and he is in office, there is no chance we can do that. No other part of the world is going to do it. We, the United States, must do it! Without our role to this effect, there is no hope for civilization, now! Things have gone too far.

"The Chinese, the Indians, the Russians do not know how to do it! And if the trans-Atlantic system collapses, they do not have the resources to be able to deal with the crisis of the planet as a whole. Only if we turn the United States around, to what is our Constitutional intention of existence, can we do that. And we have a short interval: Somewhere in July, and up to the borders of October, where the next fiscal round comes, and where that itself will tend to trigger a crisis.

"So, we're looking at the death of civilization, unless we get rid of Obama. And you can't shoot him, because that would cause just exactly the crisis we do not want. So therefore, you've got to get him out!

"And in this process, I understand this probably better than any living person, for reasons that some of you know. And therefore, that is the way it has to work: that I have to put what I know to work under people who are representatives of our government and other governments, in order to bring about a drafting of exactly this scheme which will get us through this mess safely.

"And we are now at the end of the time of option: Between somewhere in July, and some of the borders of the end of September, we are looking at either the rescue of civilization—with the mission of getting Obama out!—or the death of civilization for a long time to come. That's where we are."

The Mass Strike Perspective

The American people are ready to move, LaRouche argued. He elaborated:

"The way it works is this: The person who is faced with death, and there are millions of them threatened with death by Obama; millions of Americans are threatened with death by Obama's policies, in the early future. You see that in the homeless: The homeless are being kicked out of places where they tent up, or places where they live under bridges and things. They're being killed en masse, with calculation, by the Obama Administration and its henchmen.

"The point is, the American citizen knows that they're being killed. They try to pretend they are not being killed, because they want a moment of hope before they go. They would rather have an illusion of survival, and sit there and wait for death to take over them by this method.

"So, how do you transform the fact that they instinctively know that what is being done to them is wrong, into a plan of action, of competent action, which will solve the problem? There, in this way, the question of leadership, the dynamics of leadership, come into play. And what I know of our government, and some other governments, in the structure of the institutions—you eliminate the Obama factor—and you will have more or less immediately, the rallying points established, centered within our government, and its institutions, while reversing this trend.

"So the key thing, is, you have got to provide the focal point of leadership in the United States to replace Obama, to install the counter-thing to Obama, as the image of leadership. And you have that expressed by some people in government—and we have some people in the Federal government, who are prepared to express that. And that's what we have to fight for.

"But we have to do that, by aid of defining, as I do, a clear perception of what are the specific measures that must be taken. The unifying point of this, is Glass-Steagall. Remember, the British have ordered the United States not to implement Glass-Steagall, and that British whore, President Obama, is going along. Members of the Congress, under orders, as British whores, are going along with the British prohibition against our returning to Glass-Steagall! And they are using all kinds of thuggish methods to do that.

"And Obama is acting like Hitler in the Bunker, at this stage.

"So, the trick is: Eliminate the false leadership! Get the Judas out! And you will find that we have, in our own institutions, everything is ready to come together, with a moment of rejoicing, that we have taken our government back! That is all we need; then my job goes in. My job is to specify things that I know that other people do not, which are necessary for a successful job. And at the age of 88, that's a pretty good job."
