Glass-Steagall In, Obama Out
With the partial shutdown of the U.S. government on Oct. 1, the crisis of the dominant political-financial system in the trans-Atlantic region went into a new phasea breakdown crisis. It is "a crisis beyond belief," as Lyndon LaRouche put it, with no prospects for any resolution that does not result in chaos, mass murder, or both. Unless certain very specific measures are taken.
This crisis did not start yesterday, or even with the Obama Administration, vicious as it is. The destruction of U.S. constitutional government has proceeded at an increasingly rapid speed since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, in whose aftermath the pursuit of scientific and technological progress was abandoned in favor of a new financial imperialism. Sept. 11, 2001 represented a huge ratchet downward, as the British-Saudi empire's terror assault became the excuse for its accomplice George W. Bush to impose police-state measures and new wars, which have further gutted our republic. Congress, and political leadership in general, have become cringing cowards, afraid to address the fundamental crimes being committed against their own nation.
With the current Congress, however, we have hit a new low. Barack Obama is a clinically insane Nero figure, controlled by the British Empire and its U.S. extension in Wall Street, and determined to ram through the genocidal program devised for him, as epitomized in his Hitler health program for eliminating "lives unworthy of life." The Republican Party is dominated by insanity as well, primarily of the type of "money über alles," which rejects the core commitments of the U.S. Constitution for promoting the General Welfare.
Thus, the current blackmail game, in which the American public, and the world, are the real losers. Obama, for his part, is being told that a government shutdown is a political "winner" for him; some Republicans are calculating that the shutdown will aid them. Concern for the future of the nation is the furthest thing from their minds.
What must be done is a radical change in policy, which LaRouche again specified Oct. 1:
In other words, ram through FDR's Glass-Steagall, and dump Obama, now!
