LaRouche: Strauss-Kahn’s Fall Means End of the Bailout Game  

The arrest of IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn in New York on May 15 has brought the entire global financial bailout process to a halt. “The entire system is now going to crash,” LaRouche declared. If the backers of Obama, Geithner, and Bernanke somehow survive this, all Hell busts loose; if not, the situation becomes much more interesting. “And what happened to Strauss-Kahn, is an absolutely crucial part of this turning point which has been reached in the past two weeks.” Strauss-Kahn was a key figure in the bailout of the euro and the whole trans-Atlantic system. His arrest has changed the game. The mad-man bailout faction, especially DSK’s partners-in-crime, U.S. Treasury Secretary Geithner and Fed Chairman Bernanke, is now in disarray.

by Helga Zepp-LaRouche

The name Dominique Strauss-Kahn stands not only for moral decadence, but also for the decadence of a system that, with its infamous IMF conditionalities, has degraded entire nations and continents to objects of unconditional greed.

Finance Big Projects with a Glass-Steagall Credit System  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

On May 13, Lyndon LaRouche, in a video address to a private meeting, reiterated his evaluation that the trans-Atlantic region is now in a breakdown crisis like that which hit Weimar Germany in 1923—except that now it is affecting the entire world. Only a return to Glass- Steagall, worldwide, and great infrastructure projects, will pull us back from the brink.

Battle Royal Shattering the British Empire  

by Jeffrey Steinberg

Three huge scandals are hitting the House of Windsor, and shaking the foundations of the British Imperial Establishment, just as the entire Inter-Alpha banking system is in its death throes. Topping the list is the revival of allegations that the death of Princess Diana was not an accident, but rather a homicide ordered by the ghoulish Prince of Edinburgh.

Glass-Steagall Push Intersects Growing Mass-Strike Ferment  

by Nancy Spannaus

The U.S. mass strike that began in the Summer of 2009 is back, stronger than ever, as citizens mobilize against murderous budget cuts, from health care to life-saving city services. The recognition that the trillions of dollars in bailouts have benefited only the Wall Street and City of London swindlers who caused the crisis, is fueling their anger, and the sense that “something must be done.”

The Imperial Presidency: Obama Is Worse than Bush and Cheney  

by Edward Spannaus

In a recent series of measures, the Obama Administration has outdone even the Bush-Cheney Administration in throwing off the Constitutional system of checks and balances, by wielding arbitrary Executive power for wars abroad, and for police-state measures at home.
