With great sadness, we report that Lyndon LaRouche passed away on February 12, 2019 at the age of 96. Mr. LaRouche has been a constant source of inspiration for EIR in the fight for economic and social development for all peoples and a cultural renaissance worldwide.
Thirty years ago, on Oct. 19 1987, the biggest stock market crash in one day occurred on Wall Street. On that “Black Monday”, the Dow Jones dropped by a spectacular 22.6% in panic sales. Many articles were published on the occasion of the 30th anniversary, but virtually all failed to correctly answer the question generally raised: “Can it happen again?”
After visiting Puerto Rico which had been devastated by the hurricanes, President Trump suggested that the island’s debt should be “wiped out”. Immediately, Wall Street went into a panic mode and the mainstream media spouted that a.) he can’t do it; b.) he doesn’t know what he’s talking about; and c.) Cabinet members are “walking back” his comments. But they all missed the most obvious point — which is that there is no way that Puerto Rico can pay back the debt! Trump is right, it must be written-off.
Executive Intelligence Review published in its Sept. 28 issue, a dossier, “Robert Mueller Is an Amoral Legal Assassin: He Will Do His Job If You Let Him.”
For anyone who wishes to understand the real story of what is behind the “Russiagate” regime change operation in the U.S. today, an expose in the Sept. 29, 2017 issue of Executive Intelligence Review, is a “must read”. There, investigative journalist Barbara Boyd takes apart the cover story of Robert S. Mueller as “incorruptible” and fair-minded, revealing instead that he is a corrupt operative of the British-U.S. intelligence services known as the “Deep State.”
The People’s Daily online of China published a lengthy report on Aug. 21 on the increased prospects for the long-planned “Transaqua” great infrastructure project, which would transform Lake Chad and sub-Saharan Africa. The article by Kimeng Hilton Ndukong points to the role of Lyndon LaRouche and his international political movement in bringing together the forces needed to move the plans forward. It also places this crucial water and power project in the context of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, or “New Silk Road,” in which Helga and Lyndon LaRouche’s historic role was highlighted Aug. 20 in an article in China Daily USA.
After the most venomous transition period in recent U.S. history, marked by unprecedented “fake” news and slanders, as well as continued attempts to launch a color revolution against the President-elect, Donald Trump was inaugurated President of the United States on Jan. 20. His swearing-in speech was a mixed bag of pledges and threats, under the overriding theme of “America First”, with little said of the rest of the world.
