LaRouche and the Candidates Slate: Constitutional Principles for an Economic Recovery  

Lyndon LaRouche and the national slate of six LaRouche Democratic candidates for Congress gave this webcast on Jan. 8. There are two primary Constitutional issues that must be addressed: Re-enact FDR’s Glass-Steagall law now and restore a National Banking system, based on a Hamiltonian credit policy—not British free trade. None of the Presidential candidates are addressing these urgent matters in any way, yet the future of civilization depends upon the United States taking these actions immediately.

How Far Has Obama Gone Down Richard Nixon’s Road?  

by Nancy Spannaus and Edward Spannaus

Congress at that time prepared bills of impeachment, which ultimately “convinced” Nixon to resign from office, rather than face an inevitable impeachment and conviction. Nancy and Edward Spannaus review that process, as it highlights both where we stand now, and the immediate options for dealing with the existential crisis we face.

LaRouche: Cancel British Imperial Food Control Laws  

by Marcia Merry Baker

Three urgent requirements for the U.S. to address the problem of world hunger: Cancel membership in the WTO; repeal the 1970 Plant Variety Protection Act and successor acts that allow private patenting of agricultural improvements; repeal the Federal mandate for biofuels, which is taking corn out of the food supply and putting it into ethanol production.

An LPAC Basement Webcast: A Policy Initiative for the Survival of the Human Species  

by Creighton Cody Jones

Creighton Cody Jones gave this keynote address to a LaRouche PAC Basement Science Team webcast. “The theme,” he said, “is one which has served the poets as an image for the imagination, and has been provocative to many a scientist, from Shakespeare to Shelley, from Benjamin Franklin to Albert Einstein—that theme is lightning.”
