Carter’s Schachtian Budget Proposals  

by David Goldman

Jimmy Carter’s official budget defines a deficit in the range of 15 billion. When “off-budget” spending is mentioned, the deficit is $91 billion. That’s almost unprecedented. Only one man ever faced a deficit of that size, and ever proposed to finance it the way Carter does-Hjalmar Schacht, finance minister to Adolf Hitler.

by Laurent Murawiec

The French president and the German chancellor met in Paris this past week, to undertake what is politely termed “appeasement.” They placated Washington, temporarily. But when the dust had settled around the final communiqué, all observers agreed: The French and Germans aren’t saying what they’re doing, and aren’t doing what they’re saying.

The CFR’s Election Plot Is Threatened by the New Hampshire Primary  

by Konstantin George

The “fix is in,” as far as who is going to be the next president of the United States: Republican George Bush, provided that sure-loser Jimmy Carter wins the New Hampshire Democratic primary hands down. The only problem is, sure-loser Jimmy Carter may not win New Hampshire hands down; wild-card candidate Lyndon LaRouche is expected to make a very significant showing there, provided he stays alive.
