LaRouche Said Giuliani
Was Set Up for Bloomberg
Lyndon LaRouche released a statement on Nov. 10, 2007, forecasting that New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg would be run as a "surprise" Presidential candidate, saying: "The build-up of former New York Mayor Giuliani as a 'hot prospect' for the man to beat Hillary Clinton in the coming U.S. Presidential election, was a crafted set-up, designed ... for the present New York Mayor to emerge, as if 'miraculously,' as Senator Hillary Clinton's really intended Republican challenger.
"All of the relevant Republican king-makers had known fully in advance of the scandal which would bring Mafia creation Giuliani down, using the case-in-preparation against Bernard Kerik to spring the trap being set against Giuliani. To make Mayor Michael Bloomberg a serious contender, Giuliani had to be brought down, but only after ... Giuliani's brief trip to euphoria had cleared the deck.... [Bloomberg would be] a 'man on a white horse' ... 'People's Choice' ... a politically saleable product under the presently shattered reputations of both the Republican Party, and a Pelosi-discredited Democratic pack.
"Giuliani must be built up to the degree that his sudden, disastrous fall into a political 'Black Sox' scandal, would wreck [and] ... discredit both Giuliani and all his leading current rivals for the Republican nomination. That is exactly what has been done, as (obviously) pre-scripted.
"The standard, expert method for bringing a dictator, such as Mussolini or Hitler, to power by popular acceptance of a duped electorate, is to stun that electorate with a shocking scandal against the leading, existing party systems."
On Nov. 23, 2007, EIR published "The Rudy Bomb, Defused," exposing the financiers' intention to dump Giluiani's candidacy in favor of Bloomberg, and noting, "We intend to help make such an outcome impossible, by reporting, 'prematurely,' what would have inevitably come before the general public."
