Lyndon LaRouche is a very insidious Zionist disinformation agent, constantly talking about a British conspiracy, saying Britain is controlling Obama.

Here’s what Dr. Stan Monteith, an avowed Christian Zionist, with sincere (albeit misguided) Zionist beliefs said, that LaRouche is part of the controlled opposition.

He keeps saying Obama needs to be impeached, or else WWIII is coming, acting as if it matters much who the figurehead is when it’s the same people behind the scenes running things, and Joe Biden would become the next President anyway.

Here’s a summary I made of some of his disinfo on the March 26, 2014 episode of the Jeff Rense Show. It’s only entertaining when you realize it as being disinfo.

8m – Claims Cheney covered up 9/11 that Saudis did with British backing
20m – Said European Union is a colony of the British Empire
28m – Said the only thing stopping Obama going to thermonuclear war are generals around him
29m – Rense asked about Biden taking over, but LaRouche said forget about him, it goes beyond personality
31m – Says the British Empire is the new Roman Empire – says it was designated so when we (U.S.) went to war against them
32m – Said it’s a fact that most U.S. presidents were agents of the British Empire
33m – Said President Wilson was a wild Ku Klux Klaner
34m – Said FDR was a good president
38m – Said we can defeat long period of death of civilization if we pass Glass-Steagall and have a thermonuclear fusion project

So they were dancing Saudis and British and not Dancing Israelis on 9/11? And Michael Chertoff and others are actually dual citizens of the U.S. and Saudi Arabia?

His claim that the European Union is a British colony is so laughable when you consider that Britain’s application to the European Community was vetoed twice by DeGaulle and Britain is one of the most, if not the most, Euroskeptic nation in the EU, and they aren’t even part of the Euro, plus they have common law unlike the civil code in continental Europe.

His claim that the British Empire is the new Roman Empire is so laughable when you consider the subservient role Churchill took to FDR during WWII, and that the U.S. had the world’s largest share of GDP at the time, as China and India did at the start of the 1700s. The UK Pound lost its world reserve currency status after WWII, they lost control of so many colonies, they were told to get out of the Suez Canal.

Speaking to Triple Crown Charlie (CFR and Trilateral Commission member and Bilderberg attendee) Rose on December 16, 2010, IMF Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn ran cover for failed Euro and IMF interventionist policies.

I’m a big advocate of the single currency,

Greater economic integration often leads to greater political integration, as demonstrated by the progression in Europe from the European Coal and Steel Community to the European Economic Community to the European Union and then the Euro.

and it provides a lot of results.

Yes, like the 110 billion Euro Greek bailout and the 85 billion Euro Irish bailout.

CHARLIE ROSE: Can you have austerity and growth at the same time?

DOMINIQUE STRAUSS-KAHN: Well, I would answer no.

He’s obviously unaware of or deliberately omitting that the U.S. had unprecedented economic growth from 1945-1950, in the face of federal budget cuts of over 50%.

But the problem in the banking sector is limited to small number of banks. The big banks are safe and so I think it’s manageable.

Safe like three of the five biggest investment banks in the U.S., one of which went bankrupt (Lehman Brothers) and two others which collapsed (Bear Stearns and Merrill Lynch) and were bought up at a fraction of their 52-week highs by the biggest commercial banks? Or safe like the biggest commercial banks that were bailed out by the federal government’s $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Plan and the Federal Reserve’s $3.3 trillion bailout fund they fought so hard to keep secret?

Or how about Iceland’s currency going south by 80% in just four months in 2008 as a result of their three big banks going bankrupt? Or the UK’s two biggest banks being effectively nationalized? Or… You get the idea.

Speaking on the decision required by Euro countries to get out of the current crisis, Strauss-Kahn said (emphasis added):

It’s politically very difficult. The decision will be made in the center which will overcome the sovereignty of the nations.

He’s saying that the only acceptable decision will be made in what he refers to as “the center,” and admits it will overcome the sovereignty of the nations involved.

DOMINIQUE STRAUSS-KAHN: Well, I think a few things. First, the Greek government is very bold. And take action as it has to be done. Of course people don’t like it. But you know, the man on the street also have to understand they absolutely needed. The Greek economy was at the edge of a cliff, and there were no other solution.

Bob Chapman has repeatedly proposed an alternative solution for the Greeks, which I wholeheartedly endorse. Namely, defaulting on all their bankster-issued debts, pulling out of the Euro, going back to the Drachma, slashing exorbitant entitlements, and going through the immediate pain over the next five years at a minimum that is likely to be less severe than what will happen if they continue down the path laid out by the IMF and other globalist bankster institutions.

So the question today is that many may believe wrongfully in my view that the crises is over and go back to their domestic problem and forget all about the global coordination. So our role is to try to force this coordination among the G20 countries.

Strauss-Kahn admits that the IMF forces action on countries, despite insisting otherwise throughout the interview. Prior to the crisis in 2008, the G8 was the primary economic organization until 2009, when it was announced the G20 would be “the new permanent council for international economic cooperation,” with far greater clout to force solutions on sovereign nations.

On October 22, 2009, Charlie Rose conducted one of the most impressive interviews with any political leader I have ever seen. Former Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew, who transformed the country from third-world status in 1965, to one of the “Asian tigers” and leading port city in the world, by 1990. His intelligence, focus, communication skills, and, in my estimation, impeccable and accurate insight, show how he accomplished what he did. I believe the U.S., Europe, and people from all around the world would do well to heed his words.

The major world changes currently taking place, and the 300-year recovery of India and China:

LEE KUAN YEW: I see in Iraq and Afghanistan as distractions. That is not going to change the world whatever happens in Iran or Afghanistan, because the major changes that are taking place is the recovery of China, and to a lesser extent of India, places occupied three centuries ago before western colonization blanketed them.

Three centuries ago, they were, between the two of them, 60 percent of the world GDP, just the population and the production they put out.

On when China will catch up to the U.S. economically:

LEE KUAN YEW: Even in three decades it won’t reach its full strength. In three decades its per capita is still about one-third of America.

CHARLIE ROSE: It’s gross domestic product.

LEE KUAN YEW: For it to reach America’s standard of living and standard of technology will take more than 100 years.

On India compared to China:

LEE KUAN YEW: (INAUDIBLE) . if India were as well-organized as China, it will go at a different speed, but it’s going at the speed it is because it is India. It’s not one nation. It’s many nations. It has 320 different languages and 32 official languages.

So no prime minister in Delhi can at any one time speak in a language and be understand throughout the country. You can do that in Beijing.

On Japan’s future demographic and financial challenges:

LEE KUAN YEW: I think the Japanese need an overhaul.

CHARLIE ROSE: In terms of their political system?

LEE KUAN YEW: Yes, and in terms of their acceptance of immigrants. Their birth rate — their fertility rate is just slightly higher than ours. We’re 1.29 and they’re 1.30. They are shrinking.

But Japan does not want immigrants, so they’re stuck. Today they have 3.2 working persons to support one adult. In 2055, they’ll have 1.2 persons to support one adult.

On the Chinese mindset:

LEE KUAN YEW: For the Americans, you have got to cease to think in terms of the Chinese as they are today. The Chinese as they are today are people who have been suffering for a very long time, especially under Mao, and who feel that the world is cruel to them. And therefore they’re very edgy.

They are — if you talk to Chinese leaders now, those over 60, they are with Russian as their second language. In 20, 25 years time, they’re going to meet a generation who are now in the lower ranks who have been to America and Britain and Europe and will be English-speaking and have different models in their minds.

And they will know that they’re not going to be the sole power in the world. Not ever again, because this is a globalized world, and they know that they’re dependent on the world for their growth. The resources that…

The importance of technological development to drive economic and social development:

CHARLIE ROSE: Can you make an argument that a country who leads in technology and science, it will go a long way in terms of their place in the world?

LEE KUAN YEW: Yes, of course. That’s why I think the U.S. will still be a very powerful and considerable inventor and creator of new products.

On the continued essential importance of the U.S. in world affairs:

LEE KUAN YEW: I think the U.S. could be a benign stabilizer of the of the world order.

CHARLIE ROSE: But you also say with the United States, it has to realize most problems need an American participation in order to be solved.

LEE KUAN YEW: Yes, absolutely. Absolutely.

On the 21st century:

LEE KUAN YEW: Two things. First, that the 21st century will be a contest for supremacy in the Pacific because that’s where the growth will be. That’s where the bulk of the economic strength of the globe will come from.

If you do not hold your ground in the Pacific you cannot be a world leader. A world leader must hold his ground in the Pacific. That’s number one.

Number two, to hold ground in the Pacific, you must not let your fiscal deficits and dollar come to grief. If it comes to grief in the short term and there’s a run on the dollar for whatever reason, because of deficits are too big and the world — the financial community and the bankers and all the hedge funds and everybody come to a conclusion that you’re not going tackle these deficits and they begin to move their assets out, that’s real trouble.

What surprised him:

LEE KUAN YEW: That the impossible can happen. I never thought the Soviet Union would implode so easily, and I never thought the Chinese would abandon the communist system and move into the free market so readily. It was unthinkable 20 years ago.

Both have happened. The world has changed.

Who China is and where it’s going:

LEE KUAN YEW: No, you don’t have to encourage them. You just have to understand that they are — look, they don’t want to be an honorary member of the west, unlike Russia. They’re quite happy to be Chinese and to remain as such.

So when you tell them you ought to do this or you ought to do that, they say yes, thank you. And in the back of their minds, we have lasted 5,000 years. Have you?

(LAUGHTER)

The Beijing Olympics if you watch it, what was the message?

CHARLIE ROSE: We’re back.

LEE KUAN YEW: No — 5,000 years, and don’t forget, we invented all these things, and we’re going to go ahead in the next 5,000 years. It’s the only country where a language has survived 5,000 years, the only country by the present generation shares the same basic thinking as the past. And they’re very proud of it.

You read Hu Jintao’s speech on the 60th anniversary, translated on the web — what is it? We have 5,000 years of civilization. We’re going to get there.

And it’s a rousing speech. It may take us a long time, we have to work very hard. We will do it. So you don’t have to encourage them.

The imperative social responsibility of a leading world power:

What you have to get them to understand is with it goes responsibility. Hungry Africans, hungry, sick other people. This is a global problem. You can’t just take copper and gold and take it. You have to have a responsibility for the people’s whose copper and gold you’re mining. It goes with the job, and they will have to learn that.

I think they are already beginning to learn that, so they’re giving something back.

The United States Congressional Budget Office reported on January 7, 2009 that the U.S. would have a projected budget deficit of $1.2 trillion or 8.3% of GDP for fiscal year 2009 (from October 1, 2008 to September 30, 2009).
http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/99xx/doc9957/01-07-Outlook.pdf

Less than two full months later, President Barack Obama announced on February 26, 2009, that the budget deficit would be $1.75 trillion or 12.3% of GDP (48% higher).
http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-naw-obama-budget27-2009feb27,0,775075.story

To put this in perspective, the article reports: “The $1.75 trillion deficit projected for this year would represent 12.3 percent of the gross domestic product, double the previous post-war record of 6 percent in 1983, when Ronald Reagan was president, and the highest level since the deficit totaled 21.5 percent of GDP in 1945, at the end of World War II.”

What great evil has the U.S. defeated in 2009 like they defeated back in 1945 (fascism) to justify such an expenditure? In fact, the deficit was nearly four times less in 2008 after the ‘war on terror’ had reached a crescendo.

For modern-day comparison to a similarly sized economy, the European Union requires that its member states limit their budget deficits to a maximum of 3% of their GDP per year, though that requirement has been broken several times. The latest projected U.S. budget deficit for 2009 will be over four times that number.
