Program No. 737
“EIR News: September 21, 2009”

Marcia Merry Baker hosts this first edition of The LaRouche Connection in its new multi-topic news magazine format.

The program opens with the concluding 12 minutes of the opening remarks made by Lyndon LaRouche to an international webcast on Sept. 8, 2009, in which he makes an offer to the foundering Barak Obama on how the President can stop the madness, save the nation, and himself. To summarize: “What’re we supposed to do now? I have a solution for you, Mr. President. First, you get rid of that bunch of clowns who are associated with your health-care policy, beginning with the brothers Rahm and Ezekiel Emanuel, and Peter Orszag. Bring in a new group of qualified advisors who can provide you with adult supervision. Coming up in October-November, we face an absolutely desperate situation. We have to increase real, productive employment by about 20% immediately, especially in large-scale infrastructure programs, not green employment. We’ll keep you in the White House. You will be consulted on every question that comes up that you should be consulted on. But you’re going to listen to your new advisors, who are going to be a lot more competent than you are. You will walk out of that job, with the pride that under your Presidency, the nation was saved. And you can take pride in that. That’s the best I can give you. Junk your present program. It’s idiotic, it’s completely stupid, and it’s criminal; stop it! Mr. President! For the first time in your life, be a mensch!”

In “Health Care: Adolf Hitler’s Infamous T-4 Euthanasia Program,” EIR’s Antony Papert next reports on the political mass strike process now sweeping the country, and most prominently visible at the August town hall meetings. “Americans have mobilized themselves to protect their lives from a government run amok, a government bent on killing them. And they’re right.” Instead of doing the right thing and enacting LaRouche’s Homeowners and Bank Protection Act of 1997, which had significant support at the state and local level, eight months into the Obama administration, we have witnessed a $24 trillion Wall St. bank bailout, closed down factories, dwindling food supplies, and growing millions of unemployed and homeless. Obama’s so-called healthcare reform scheme is designed to suck the remaining life out of our bodies—and it’s identical to the Nazi killing program, to kill by denying health care.

What follows is a chilling 20-minute documentary produced by and provided courtesy of LPAC-TV, on what happened to Germany which led to Hitler’s infamous T-4 euthanasia program. It begins with archival footage from the 1947 Nuremberg trial with doctor Karl Brandt’s final statement: “I am fully conscious that when I said ‘Yes’ to euthanasia, I did so with the deepest conviction, jut as it is my conviction today that it was right.” How could such a circumstance come to pass? Back in the days of Friedrich Schiller, Moses Mendelssohn and Gotthold Lessing, and many others, Germany experienced an explosion of classical learning and cultural optimism. With the 1890 ouster of the pro-American System Otto von Bismarck, however, the British ushered in a process culminating in World War I, burdening defeated Germany under the Versailles treaty with an impossible reparations regime, which ultimately led to the hyperinflation of 1923. Post-war cultural pessimism set in, and the ideas of eugenics, “race purity,” and “hereditary fitness” took hold. The age-old rotten notion of purging part of the population for the “greater good” of the remainder, found its horrific expression in the mid-1920’s in mass sterilizations, and other programs. On Sept. 1, 1939 (the same day as Germany’s invasion of Poland), Adolf Hitler signed his infamous T4 decree, establishing the active euthanasia program. The remainder of the documentary provides some of the gruesome details of the T4 program.

Mr. Papert concludes with a characterization of the mass strike as “neither Democratic nor Republican, neither Liberal nor Conservative, but rather embodies the fundamental ideas found in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Its basis is the same as that of the East German demonstrators of 1989, who brought down the Wall, saying ‘We are the people!’ We’re at a new historic crossroads. Given the right leadership, the mass strike revolt of the American people can place President Obama under adult supervision, or if necessary, force him out. We will either have a new international fixed exchange rate credit system, as designed by LaRouche, to replace the failed international monetarist system, or we will have chaos leading to dictatorship and war, as in the French Revolution of 1789, where there will be a most rapid fall of world population from 6-7 billions to two billions or less.”

The final segment is from EIR’s editor-in-chief, Nancy Spannaus, on the Obama Administration’s economic disaster. Entitled “Their First 100 Days: Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Barak Obama,” she begins with a short video clip of Lyndon LaRouche, from his prescient July 7, 2007 international webcast, in which he issued a warning of great urgency: “There is no possibility of a non-collapse of the present financial system—none! It’s finished, now! The present financial system can not continue to exist under any circumstances, under any Presidency, under any leadership, or any leadership of nations. Only a fundamental and sudden change in the world monetary financial system will prevent a general, immediate chain-reaction type of collapse. At what speed we don’t know, but it will go on, and it will be unstoppable! And the longer it goes on before coming to an end, the worse things will get.”

Spannaus: “Three days later, on July 10, 2007, the first visible event of the great economic breakdown crisis of the 21st Century occurred. Although taking the appearance of a ‘mortgage crisis,’ in fact, the collapse of the housing market was only a symptom of the death of the global financial system—which became increasingly hard to hide, as financial markets everywhere froze up, and bankers and governments went into panic.”

That was two years ago. What has Obama done since to get the nation out of this mess? Using selected footage from the first inaugurals of Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Obama, Mrs. Spannaus then matches up their first 100 days on three main policy-programs—the banking system, jobs, and housing. Instead of providing relief to individuals and communities, as Roosevelt did, Obama has bailed out the banks to the tune of tens of trillions of dollars; instead of putting folks back to work in critical areas, as Roosevelt did, Obama has presided over the massive closing of factories and farms; instead of protecting our living standards, as Roosevelt did, Obama’s policies have increased unemployment, taken away our homes, and now threatens to kill us!

Spannaus: “The crisis pointed to by Mr. LaRouche in July 2007 has only deepened—putting this nation, as well as the rest of the world, on the very edge of disintegration. Mr. LaRouche’s estimation is that unless the bankrupt world monetarist system is rapidly replaced with a new fixed exchange rate credit system, based on a treaty agreement among the sovereign nations of Russia, China, India, and the U.S., we are headed into a global New Dark Age. It didn’t have to be this way. Instead of emulating Adolf Hitler, President Obama could have learned a lot from President Franklin Roosevelt.” He had better pay attention now to LaRouche.

She concludes to pound home Mr. LaRouche’s solutions as the only ones available today: bankruptcy reorganization; establishment of a credit system, whereby the unpayable gambling debts are stet aside, and socially essential costs are met; the establishment of a credit system by federalizing the Federal Reserve; negotiation of a Four Power agreement; and issuance by a new National Bank of long-term low-interest credit for infrastructure and putting people to work, thus generating the tangible wealth for the nation to care for all its citizens.
