Glass-Steagall or Die! The Last Depression Was Caused by Banksters and Glass-Steagall Reined Them In.
Oct 14—Now, at last, force yourself to face the facts.
This bad joke of a nominating process can never produce
a Democratic candidate who could be honestly
elected by the American people. Hillary Clinton has decided
to be,—or has been decided to be,—the candidate
of Wall Street. She was already the cheerleader for the
Bush-Cheney-Obama wars and murders in Iraq, Libya,
and Syria. And Bernie Sanders is now the candidate of
the hated Barack Obama, whom he used to attack, but
now praises and supports. The corrupt fundraisers for
Obama’s campaigns, who smuggled in drug-money
under cover of anonymous internet contributions in
2008 for Obama’s fraudulent victory over a better Hillary
Clinton,—have now moved over to perform the
same service for Bernie Sanders. (Nothing need be said
of the Republican so-called nominating process.)
Such morally-failed candidates, Wall Street and
Obama candidates, can do nothing to begin to reverse
the destruction the United States has suffered under
almost 16 years of murderous Bush-Cheney-Obama
tyranny. Rather, they will blast the country to oblivion
well before January 2017.
A different nominating process must be begun now,
directed not so much to nominating a single individual
for President, but much more towards the creation of a
Presidential team, like Franklin Roosevelt’s or George
Washington’s team, for example, which unites within
itself the qualifications and the knowledge to rescue our
country while there is still time. And like Roosevelt’s
and Washington’s teams in their time, that team must be
assembled now, in and around Manhattan.
First, to deal with the obvious objection. If you say
that that is “impractical,” then there is something very
important which you yourself must learn right now.
Practical people are dead people. The deadness which
is already within them, will manifest itself quickly,
now, as biological death, unless they renounce “being
practical,”—or else, one may hope, are rescued, although
through no merit of their own, by the creative
people, who are not practical people.
This is what Edgar Allan Poe tried to teach you in
his great stories, “The Pit and the Pendulum,” and “A
Descent into the Maelström,” among so many others.
Reread them now. Indeed, he sacrificed everything to
teach you this; and now, well over a century later, have
you learned nothing at all?
This country can only be saved when the great mass
of the people take their cue from the few creative
people. Only a new Renaissance can save this country
A Manhattan Party
Lyndon LaRouche addressed this in a discussion
“It’s the Universe that’s the issue, at least the human
part of the Universe as we know it. And therefore, we’re
going to have to have a composition pulled together
which meets that requirement. And we can do that. If
we get our ass off the shelf, shall we say, or something
like that, we can do it! And we can do it on the basis of
a central reference to Manhattan.
“So what we’re going to do is have a Manhattan
party. It’s called a national re-election party: We’re
going to center everything around the parts of the
nation, on the basis of a single campaign for a new Presidential
system. And we’re going to get a team to get in
there, with no more bullshit. No mere facts, no party
lines, no meaningful suggestions, which are sometimes
the most rotten ones you can possibly get, in my experience.
“So it has to be a Manhattan-centered orientation,
because the key is, as I pointed out earlier: Dump Wall
Street! If we don’t have a dump Wall Street campaign
as the leading course of action, you don’t win anything.
So we have to say, ‘Shut down Wall Street, now, while
we can, with Glass-Steagall, we can change the situation
with Glass-Steagall.’ We can do it. So we have to
“And we get ourselves marching with some real ammunition
which we have to pull together, and we’re
Now the Hard Road Is the Only Road
going to turn this thing upside down. It’s vulnerable
enough that it can be done. The fact is that the two campaigns,
as such, the so-called leading campaigns for the
Democratic Party have flopped. They’re flopped,
they’re dead, they’re finished! So what kind of a Democratic
campaign do you have? You don’t have a Democratic
Party campaign! You have a bastard Republican
Party campaign. That’s the way you campaign, people
like Trump. That’s the kind of thing that’s being pushed.
“So we have to blow it. And we can blow it on an
international basis, although you don’t like to usually
do that on an international basis in terms of U.S. politics.
But this time it’s come: What Putin is doing, together
with China and India, and about three other nations
which are smaller, tied to Putin now, that’s a pretty
“And the enemy is the British Empire! The competition
is with the British Empire! It’s in sorry conditions;
it’s on the edge itself, like Wall Street. Wall Street is
hopelessly dead. If you want to be a Wall Streeter,
you’re a dead person; there’s no way that mankind can
live under Wall Street, or any form of Wall Street. The
very existence of Wall Street will mean its death in
panic. And you will get an extinction of most of the
human population, as a result of such a panic.
“So the bullshit is over.
A Global Perspective
“And that’s where we are. We’re at a point where as
of this moment now, with the package we have as of
now, the recent developments which match that right
now, we, our campaign policy, is dead! Because it is not
a campaign policy; it’s a wishful thinking policy. And
therefore, we have to think about how we are going to
assemble something which has got the energy to do
something about this. And the way we can do it,—we
can do it on the basis of what Putin has done, and what
Putin has done is not just Putin; it’s China; it’s India; it’s
a whole group of smaller nations, that is, less-weight
nations, working together with Putin, and it’s there!
“So what you have to do, is you have to operate on
the basis of a vision, not of local complexions, not of
regional sections, but you’ve got to think of a global
perspective. The old idea of the principle of party is
crap, and we’ve just got to get rid of that crappy habit.
And we’re going to have to start right now on what
basis, with the fact that we know something and these
guys don’t. That’s the issue. The people who want to be
practical are the people who don’t know how to think.
“We are now in a question of a planetary crisis. Can
the planet as a planet, in and of itself, now sustain an
actual institution on planet Earth? And I would say now,
‘No.’ People pretend it exists, but it actually doesn’t.
And everything now is on this new kind of process,
where you have nations which are defined as nations
with sovereignty. But the sovereignty is conditioned,
because there are overreaching moral questions which
have to be superior to any so-called Constitution. . . .
“What happened when Manhattan was attacked by
the Saudis, when mass murder was occurring in Manhattan,
and what has been done by the United States on
that issue since that time? I would say that how we deal
with this thing should be a leading factor. Because this
thing is so raw, right now. The situation is so raw, so
degenerated, that opinion itself has become degenerated.
Because if you take any part of the community
within our nation, you feel like you’re dealing with a
degenerate; different flavors of degeneracy.
“And therefore, you have to take the right kind of
themes; don’t think about the political forms per se.
Think about what happened to the people who got killed
by the Saudis and the British: Isn’t that a good issue?
Isn’t that a live issue?
“Jeff [Steinberg] and I had some fun with that issue,
in the sense of—you know, knowing the facts, and
being guided into an experience together with some
British forces who are loyal to people, as opposed to the
other variety. We knew this was coming: We knew that
the British monarchy did it! And used the Saudis as the
instrument. That’s what 9/11 was! And I knew it before
it happened, and Jeff knew it before it happened! And
that should be a little test of,—do you know what the
truth of history is?
“And so we take those kinds of issues, not the socalled
practical issues, but those kind of issues; and you
organize around Classical music, according to the
proper principle, which we have an organization for, essentially
in Manhattan and around it now. Change the
alternative! Change the orientation! Putin I’m sure will
join; China I’m sure will join, others. Let’s do something
“Now, we’ve got a breakdown, a total breakdown of
the Democratic Party,—totally shattered right now, as
of now. And it was obvious to me at midday on Friday,
that this thing is dead; the Democratic Party teams were
Moneychangers trying to destroy the US causing Great Depression are at it again with Bailouts and scheduled Bailins. Roosevelt with Pecora Commission exposed Wall Street criminals and signed Glass-Steagall into law to rein in the Banksters as Emergency Banking Act. We need to do the same again. These conmen and crooks of Wall Street never change and forced the repeal of Glass-Steagall manipulating Bill Clinton with the Monica Lewinsky scandal…..they also got rid of the anti Wall street Governor Eliot Spitzer with a call girl scandal-reading between the lines it appeared to be a set-up all the way but once he was gone Wall Street embarked on an orgy of looting and derivatives created bubbles, financial schemes and scams worthy of the Great Train Robber except it was municipalities and taxpayers being looted. Time to stop the looting!! Without Glass-Steagall protecting us we can expect a Great Depression worse than the last one. Why? We have fewer farmers and more city folk which would result in mass starvation. Call your Congress and Demand Glass-Steagall!
