At the Brink of Confusion: When Governments Crumble  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche supplies his unique perspective, based on his outstanding achievements as a professional economic forecaster over much of his 88 years of life to date, to the existential threat to our planet and its human civilization. As he writes: Unless the original Glass-Steagall law of 1933 were re-enacted almost immediately, and the removal of Barack Obama from the Presidency of the United States accomplished, the general collapse of the U.S. financial system were imminent as soon as this year.

“There is, speaking practically, no actually efficient, present barrier to global disaster, without the chances for passage of U.S.A.’s H.R. 1489 [for revival of Glass-Steagall] legislation as the pathway for halting the presently accelerating breakdown-crisis of the entirety of the trans- Atlantic region—and, therefore, beyond.”

A New Definition of Mankind: Taking Charge of the Solar System and the Galaxy  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., Sky Shields, and Cody Jones

Basement researchers Cody Jones and Sky Shields join Lyndon LaRouche May 11 on the LPAC Weekly Report, for a discussion that centered on what is unique about our human species, as distinct from all other life forms today, and in the history of our planet. That distinction, man’s creativity, is what now has to be universally nurtured and developed, such that we will avoid the fate of nearly all previous Earthly species: extinction. The first step is to abandon the idea that we are limited by what we can know through sense-perception, and to recognize that “the human mind is not a product of a mere brain, nor of sense-perception, but is actually a product of what we might call cosmic radiation, a peculiar feature of cosmic radiation, which gives man a special power that no other known living species has,” as LaRouche explains.

Mississippi Flood Disaster Reveals Epic Policy Fiasco  

by Marcia Merry Baker

The worsening flood destruction along the Mississippi River, mitigated by the actions of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, shows— not the wrath of nature, which is fierce—but the policy failure of recent decades, up through and including the Obama Administration’s pretense of concern, token aid, or outright denial of Federal relief, i.e., the “Haiti treatment,” to millions of people throughout the flood zone.

National

In NerObama Land: All Circus, No Bread  

Sources close to the Administration freely admit that the President Obama’s energy is totally focused on his reelection, and that all policy decisions are being made on the basis of what will best serve that fixation. The Billion-Dollar Man has all-but abandoned the day-to-day work of the Presidency to the likes of Valerie Jarrett, as he races from coast to coast for behind-closed-doors sessions with big bucks donors.

Development

North Africa: Making the Sahara Bloom: The Blue Revolution  

The edited transcript of a Schiller Institute video. The “Arab Spring,” which has swept Northern Africa and Southwest Asia, now poses the opportunity to replace the murderous imperial financial policies of the IMF et al. with great development projects, such as nuclear power development and desalination to green the deserts.

The Importance of NAWAPA for Geophysical Research  

by Peter Martinson

“Our planet is an integral part of the Solar System. As such, it shows clear resonances with processes in the Sun, and with other planets. The whole system is also part of a galactic system, along with the Crab Nebula, which itself is part of a greater local group of intergalactic space-time, which includes over 30 galaxies, and beyond that, supergroups and superclusters. What is emerging from the research into earthquake precursors, and correspondences with other phenomena of our galaxy, is a scientific revolution,” writes Peter Martinson, of the LaRouche Basement Team.
