(Jan. 31, 2013) — Lyndon LaRouche, who runs a news service and publishes analysis and commentary on national and global concerns, appeared on a video on Wednesday referring to “a parade of indictments” against Barack Obama, the contents of which he said would be “better stated by better legal and judicial authorities.”
LaRouche states on the video that he believes the “new situation” will cause Obama to leave office before finishing his recently-commenced second term.
The video is described by a LaRouche editor as a continuation of a video series.
He makes an apparent reference to Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve System, and says that “the courts are against him.”
In the beginning of the video, LaRouche appears to refer to the decision of a three-judge panel of the U.S. appeals court in Washington, DC announced on Friday which stated that Obama violated the U.S. constitution when he made four “recess” appointments early in 2012. The panel ruled that the Senate was not actually in recess during that time, and mainstream media reported that the decisions of those whom Obama nominated could be subject to nullification.
Other statements LaRouche makes are vague and do not detail the “indictments” he mentions at the beginning.
A caption posted below the YouTube video reads:
On January 25th, 2013 , Mr. Lyndon Larouche, a well respected journalist and political activist received word from his sources within the United States government that President Barack Hussein Obama has been indicted by a Federal Court. Details of the indictment has been omitted by Larouche but he characterized them as probably the greatest indictment he has ever seen placed upon a standing president throughout history.
LaRouche later refers again to “charges” filed with a court. “The impeachment as a form has not been realized. The impeachment in terms of the indictment has,” he said.
He went on to say that the “British Empire,” including the Queen of England would “very angry ab0ut this.” He then said that “the federal courts” have defied the Queen.
Several times, LaRouche said that Obama needed to be impeached but that a court had moved to “defend the United States against the travesties and crimes of this president.” Regarding impeachment, “That will probably occur,” LaRouche said.
“The court has done pretty-much what it should have done, and maybe a bit more, in this case. That’s good. That restore our confidence in the institutions of our government, contrary to this president,” he said.
He alternately referred to “court” and “courts” in the 14:30 video but did not clarify the number of cases to which he was referring.
Many have theorized that Obama cannot be impeached because he was never a legitimate office-holder. Obama claims a British father, which could disqualify him from being a “natural born Citizen” as required by the U.S. Constitution, Article II.
The video concludes with “He’s a criminal, as far as I’m concerned.”
On his website, LaRouche lists six reasons as to why he believes Obama should be impeached. LaRouche is reportedly 90 years old. He has used the pen name “Lyn Marcus.” He was convicted of conspiracy to commit mail fraud in 1988 and served six years in prison. He ran for both Congress and president while serving his sentence. Some world leaders and activists from various countries believed him to be innocent and worked to restore his reputation after the sentencing.
LaRouche has compared Obama to Hitler and has long warned of impending financial collapse. He has been considered both “old left” and “far right” at different times of his life. During the 1950s, he was a member of the Socialist Workers Party, and later, formed an organization named the National Caucus of Labor Committees with the purpose of taking over the Columbia University Students for a Democratic Society (SDS).
William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, former domestic terrorists and now university professors, were active in the SDS branch in Chicago which carried out the “Days of Rage” and split into The Weathermen, which detonated bombs at the U.S. Capitol and New York City police station. The goal of the Weathermen, which became The Weather Underground, was to violently overthrow the United States government.
The remainder of what might have been The Weather Underground was found by police in 1996 in Brooklyn, NY.
A new SDS was founded in 2006 which has opposes limits on immigration, reductions in student aid, and overseas wars and have held 60s-style sit-ins and protests in conjunction with SDS groups from other colleges and areas.
LaRouche and Dr. Fred Newman became involved politically during the 1970s. Both men have been accused of operating cults. One researcher believes that Newman is the uncle of the man known as “Barack Obama.”
Both LaRouche and Newman utilized Marxism to form leftist organizations in the 1960s, and both were accused of having attempted to brainwash young people. LaRouche later began reaching out to right-wing groups, and he was accused of anti-Semitism and being the purveyor of conspiracy theories.
Following the split between LaRouche’s NCLC and the “Newmanites” in the mid-1970s, Newman founded the International Workers Party (IWP) and social therapy. Newman twice ran the presidential campaigns of Dr. Lenora Fulani, who had ties to Jesse Jackson Sr., Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan. Newman, although born into a Jewish family, has been termed anti-Semitic.
