LaRouche Warned You in 2009:
Obama Threatens Your Survival

by the Editors

[PDF version of this article]

April 17—Three years ago, on April 11, 2009, Lyndon LaRouche delivered an international webcast from Northern Virginia, in which he warned, in the most blunt language, that the newly inaugurated President, Barack Obama, was a dangerous Narcissist, in the tradition of the Emperor Nero. LaRouche declared that, unless the President was placed under the tight supervision of a team of qualified advisors, White House staff, and Cabinet members, the United States would soon be facing the greatest existential threat to its survival in the entire history of the Republic.

LaRouche did not mince words in delivering his clinical diagnosis of the President. He put it in these terms:

"He has a Nero problem. He's a contemporary Nero. Famous kind of problem. And if you leave him in there, you're going to find out the kind of effect he's going to play; he's going to play the role of a Nero....

"You see, his instincts are wrong! And his self-adulation, his manic, euphoric self-adulation, is the mentality of the worst kind of dictator. Don't let him get in a position where he has that kind of power. Keep him under constraint, the legal constraint within the American Presidential system, as it works. Keep him in that constraint. If you don't, you're creating a monster. You don't want a Frankenstein monster. You don't want a Narcissus in the Presidency, and he's a case of Narcissus, just like Nero. And the program is basically like that of Nero.

"He's a danger to all humanity if you don't keep him under control. He's a danger to himself, as well as everybody else. So, you ain't persecuting him, when you're protecting him from himself."

Speaking Truth to Power

LaRouche did not wait for Obama to initiate illegal wars, assassinate American citizens abroad, bail out Wall Street and the City of London with trillions of dollars in stolen taxpayers' money, or impose Nazi-like euthanasia policies under the guise of "health-care reform" before launching his shot across the bow.

LaRouche had been studying Obama's performance during the brutal primary election campaign against Sen. Hillary Clinton. He also closely observed the President's fawning performance just weeks earlier in London, when he met for the first time with Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and practically groveled at her feet in public. Upon his return from Buckingham Palace, the President immediately showed the earlier suppressed signs of his severe Narcissist disorder.

Looking back now, three years later, on LaRouche's courageous action, many leading figures in governing institutions in the United States, Western Europe, Russia, and China are scratching their heads, trying to figure out why they were so blind and LaRouche so prescient. Today, a growing chorus of citizens are demanding President Obama's immediate impeachment for a laundry list of high crimes and misdemeanors—all of which took place after LaRouche delivered his clinical pronouncement about Nerobama and the danger he posed to our Constitutional Republic.

Impeach Obama 2012

Over the last few weeks, popular Internet radio host Alex Jones ( has launched an "Impeach Obama 2012" campaign, built around a ten-minute video produced by documentary filmmaker Sean Stone, spelling out a bill of particulars for Obama's Constitutional removal from office. The Stone video has gone viral on the Internet, and has underscored an emerging convergence of conservative populists and anti-war liberals based on the recognition that Obama is, indeed, a menace to the nation and the world at large.

In addition to Obama's illegal war of regime change and the murder of a head of state in Libya, his assassination of American citizen Anwar al-Awlaki, his plans for mass round-ups of American citizens here in the United States under provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the Stone video also condemns Obama for being an agent of a foreign power—the British Crown and its City of London financier oligarchy.

In the three years since his April 9 webcast, LaRouche never once had second thoughts about his 2009 forecast about the consequences of a Nerobama Presidency-gone unchecked.

Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) has contributed courageously to the growing momentum for Obama's removal from office, before he triggers a global war of extermination, by supporting an Israeli or initiating an American military attack on Iran, an attack that would quickly draw Russia and China into a global conflict, potentially leading to the use of thermonuclear weapons.

Jones's House Concurrent Resolution 107, introduced just before the Congressional Spring recess, would activate automatic impeachment proceedings against any President who brought the country to war without first getting the explicit authorization of Congress under Article I, Section 8, Paragraph 11 of the U.S. Constitution, which gives Congress the exclusive authority to declare war.

This is no hypothetical matter. Now more than three years into his Presidency, Obama is facing a difficult re-election campaign. According to several accounts by people in the immediate White House environment, the President is in a dangerous, manic flight-forward state of mind. Senior U.S. Navy flag officers have confirmed that the service is in a crash mobilization to update contingency plans for a U.S. military intervention against Iran, in the event of an Israeli preemptive attack on Iran's nuclear facilities. The concern among the U.S. Navy top brass is that such an Israeli action could occur anytime between now and September.

This week, reflecting back on his sharp warning of April 11, 2009, LaRouche again warned that President Obama is an impulsive killer who will take any steps he deems necessary to get his way: He has the mentality of a terrorist. Ask yourself, LaRouche continued, how people will react to threats coming from a President who is a terrorist.

LaRouche warned that a Nero-like psychotic like President Obama is not controlled—except when he is explicitly under control. This even applies to the British apparatus that financed his election to the Presidency and has subsequently controlled all of his major policy decisions.

Now, with the entire trans-Atlantic financial system in an end-game meltdown, currently centered on Portugal, Spain, and Italy, and with the target date for global conflagration repeatedly set back since last October, thanks to war-avoidance efforts by U.S. military leaders, and by Russia and China, there are growing indications that factions within the British oligarchy may be having second thoughts about unleashing thermonuclear extinction. There are some saner elements who simply believe that such a thermonuclear war provocation is too crazy to be considered. Others, assessing the mounting resistance, are afraid that such a provocation, if laid at London's doorsteps, could fail—and fail catastrophically.

Blair's Secret Mission for the Crown

It is in this context that LaRouche has taken special note of an ongoing secret mission to the United States by former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Blair, a servant of the British Crown and its intelligence apparatus, is keeping his U.S. itinerary secret, other than a public speech he delivered on April 16 at an international philanthropic conference in Washington, D.C., and an interview, earlier in the day, by U.S. news networks, in front of the White House. Sources close to the Presidency say that Blair was certainly going to meet with President Obama during his visit.

In discussions today with colleagues, LaRouche raised the obvious question:

Britain, he noted, is a world empire, with significant control over the United States, a control that was deepened during the presidencies of George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. The actions of British puppet President Obama are matters of internal control within the global British imperial financial system.

Obama, LaRouche concluded, is a lunatic, and in his current manic, Nero-like frame of mind, he is not under control. Obama is London's agent of choice, but only if he is under control. Clearly, Blair's secret mission is related to President Obama, who is displaying the very symptoms of an Emperor Nero during the final phase of his reign.

Out Now!

Under these fragile circumstances, where the trans-Atlantic system could crash at any moment, waiting for the outcome of the November Presidential elections is not an option. President Obama must be removed from office now—by strictly Constitutional means.

As LaRouche has repeatedly stated in recent months, with Obama's removal by impeachment or by invoking Section 4 of the 25th Amendment, which provides for an orderly transition in the case that a President is physically or mentally unfit to continue to serve, the U.S. Congress can immediately reinstate Glass-Steagall banking separation (Rep. Marcy Kaptur [D-Ohio] already has a bill before the House which would do precisely this), and begin an economic recovery.

If President Obama remains in office beyond the immediate days and weeks ahead, it is anyone's guess as to whether the United States will survive, as we know it, to celebrate Independence Day on the Fourth of July.
