PRESS RELEASE


LaRouche to Deliver
State of the Union Address
on Jan. 28

Dec. 10, 2002 (EIRNS)—Democratic pre-Presidential candidate Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. will deliver a State of the Union message to a Washington, D.C. audience on Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2003, the candidate's campaign committee, LaRouche in 2004, announced today. The address will be broadcast live over the Internet from the campaign's website, www.larouchein2004.net, beginning at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (1800 UTC).

LaRouche issued the following statement today about his upcoming address:

"Now, Two Years Later

"A little more than two years ago, I broadcast a forecast of the likely situation during a year under the George W. Bush then awaiting inauguration as the next President. Subsequent events have fully borne out that economic forecast in a timely fashion, like every published economic forecast I had delivered to the written record during the preceding thirty-odd years. So, now, on January 28, 2003, at 13:00 hours Eastern Standard Time, I shall deliver another history-making forecast on the state of the Union and of the world, by webcast, from our nation's capital.

"A few days earlier, President George W. Bush should have presented his annual State of the Union address. Then in my report of January 28th, I shall tell the world where President Bush was right in his official report, and where he must urgently change his opinion.

"Now, the world is gripped by the onrush of what will prove to be the greatest monetary-financial crisis in more than a hundred years. Wishful fools are hovering anxiously at Dracula's grave-site, waiting for the relevant Dracula — the present world monetary-financial system — to recover. That succubus system will never recover; but, the economy of the U.S.A., the Americas, and elsewhere could recover as it did under President Franklin Roosevelt's leadership, if the President and Congress are willing to take the early steps needed to set that recovery into motion.

"What exactly will happen during 2003? Only witches and the financial-market touts who have so richly duped and robbed so many among you predict, but prophets and honest economic forecasters deliver warnings of danger, like the warning delivered to the doomed Biblical Belshazzar. I predict nothing; I warn you of the danger you incur if you do not accept the advice of the most successful economic forecaster of the past thirty-odd years.

"My job is to lead you, and also the current President, out of the present mess, if you and he are willing to face reality. On January 28th, I shall sum up the situation, and answer your questions about this matter."
