Lyndon LaRouche at a news conference in Paris in February 2006.

Lyndon Hermyle LaRouche, Jr. (born September 8, 1922 in Rochester, New Hampshire) is an American political activist and founder of several political organizations in the United States and elsewhere, jointly referred to as the LaRouche movement. He is known as a perennial candidate for President of the United States, having run in eight elections since 1976, once as a U.S. Labor Party candidate and seven times as a candidate for the Democratic Party nomination.

There are sharply contrasting views of LaRouche. His supporters regard him as a brilliant and original thinker, whereas his critics see him as a conspiracy theorist, cult leader, and anti-Semite.[1] The Heritage Foundation has said that he "leads what may well be one of the strangest political groups in American history,"[2][3] described by Norman Bailey, a former senior staffer of the National Security Council, as "one of the best private intelligence services in the world."[3] A conspiracy theory is a theory that defies common historical or current understanding of events, under the claim that those events are the result of manipulations by two or more individuals or various secretive powers or conspiracies. ...

LaRouche was sentenced to fifteen years imprisonment in 1988 for conspiracy to commit mail fraud and tax code violations, but continued his political activities from behind bars until his release in 1994 on parole. Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, who was one of LaRouche's attorneys, wrote that his case "involves a broader range of deliberate and systematic misconduct and abuse of power over a longer period of time in an effort to destroy a political movement and leader, than any other federal prosecution in my time or to my knowledge."[4] In the criminal law, a conspiracy is an agreement between natural persons to break the law at some time in the future, and, in some cases, with at least one overt act in furtherance of that agreement. ...

LaRouche is the son of Lyndon H. LaRouche, Sr. (June 1, 1896 - December 1983) [32] and Jessie Lenore Weir (November 12, 1893 - August 1978) [33]), a descendant of Elder Brewster from the Mayflower and other prominent Yankee families on his mother's side. [34] He was born in Rochester, New Hampshire, the oldest of three children. He attended the School Street elementary school until 1936, when the family moved to Lynn, Massachusetts, after his father, the son of an immigrant from Quebec, resigned from his job as a shoe salesman at the United Shoe Machinery Corporation in Rochester to set up his own business, becoming, as LaRouche's biography states, "a technologist and internationally active consultant in the footwear industry."[citation needed] Image File history File linksMetadata Lyndon_LaRouche. ...

In a 1974 interview, LaRouche described his childhood as that of "an egregious child, I wouldn't say an ugly duckling but a nasty duckling."[5] According to his 1979 autobiography, The Power of Reason, he began to read at "about age five," and was called "Big Head" by the other children at school.[6] He was told by his parents, who were both Quakers, that under no circumstances could he fight with other children even in self-defense.[7] This advice led to "years of hell" for him from bullies at school.[8] As a result of this bullying, and because of the social isolation resulting from his precocity, he spent much of his time alone, taking long walks through the woods[9] and identifying in his mind with great philosophers: Pendle Hill, a landmark in the history of the Society of Friends. ...

Immanuel Kant Immanuel Kant (April 22, 1724 – February 12, 1804) was a Prussian philosopher, generally regarded as one of Europes most influential thinkers and the last major philosopher of the Enlightenment. ...

By contrast, he joked, the childhood peers from whom he had felt so alienated had been "unwitting followers of David Hume." David Hume (April 26, 1711 – August 25, 1776)[1] was a Scottish philosopher, economist, and historian. ...


LaRouche elaborated on his early intellectual development in a second autobiography (1988) in which he reports that between the ages of twelve and fourteen, he read philosophy extensively, embracing the ideas of Leibniz, and rejecting those of Hume, Bacon, Hobbes, Locke, Berkeley, Rousseau, and Kant.[11] It is unclear from LaRouche's writings whether he actually studied all these philosophers at such an age, or simply formed opinions about them based on general impressions. It has been suggested that this article be split into multiple articles. ...

By 1940 the Lynn Monthly Meeting of Friends (Quaker) was discussing censuring LaRouche for spreading libelous material and gossip about other members and in 1941 the Lynn Meeting agreed to expel him, removing him from the group: "We believe Lyndon H. LaRouche [Jr.] is guilty of stirring up discord in this meeting; that he is responsible for circulating material injurious to the reputation of valued Christian workers; and believe that his conduct brings the Christian religion into public disrepute. We recommend the appointment of a committee to deal with him and to endeavor to reclaim him in a spirit of Christian love." [35] His family all resigned in sympathy, asking to be removed from the membership of the meeting in October 1941.


LaRouche writes of this conflict in his autobiography, characterizing it as a quarrel with the American Friends Service Committee, stemming from several issues: the disappearance of a trust fund, the Austin-Cross fund, which had been set up by friends and relatives of LaRouche to meet the financial needs of the Silsbee Street Meeting House; resistance by LaRouche's father and others to an attempt to recruit them to the support of Soviet communism; and theological disagreements. LaRouche ultimately renounced Conscientious Objection and served in World War II, a decision he describes as one of the most important in his life.[12] American Friends Service Committee logo The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) is a Religious Society of Friends (Quaker) affiliated organization which works for social justice, peace and reconciliation, abolition of the death penalty, and human rights, and provides humanitarian relief. ... “CCCP” redirects here. ...

His parents later formed and led their own independent congregation in Boston, the Village Street Monthly Meeting, which met from 1964 to 1979, and in which LaRouche was an active member. [36] According to New England Quaker documents, "this was ostensibly as a Quaker meeting, though its relations with New England Yearly Meeting seem to have been decidedly unFriendly. They were never listed in the Yearly Meeting minutes, as most independent meetings were. Lyndon LaRouche, seems to have been a key member."[13]


LaRouche enrolled at Northeastern University, Boston, but left in 1942 after receiving poor grades. As a Quaker, he was at first a conscientious objector during World War II, joining a Civilian Public Service camp where King reports that he "promptly joined a small faction at odds with the administrators,"[14] but in 1944 he joined the Army as a non-combatant, serving in India and Burma with medical units and ending the war as an ordnance clerk. While in India, he developed an interest in and sympathy for the Indian Independence movement. He reports in his autobiography that many GIs feared that they would be asked to support British forces in actions against Indian independence forces, a prospect which he says "was revolting to most of us."[15] Northeastern University (NU) is a top-tier private research university in Boston, Massachusetts, in the New England region of the United States. ...

While still in the CO camp, LaRouche had begun discussing Marxism with fellow camp inmates and soon became a Marxist. While travelling home from India on the troopship SS General Bradley in 1946, he met Don Merrill, a fellow soldier, who was also from Lynn. Merrill won LaRouche over to Trotskyism on the journey home. Back in the U.S., LaRouche attempted to resume his education at Northeastern, intending to major in physics, but left again because of what he called academic "philistinism."[16] Marxism takes its name from the praxis — the synthesis of philosophy and political action — of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. ...

1948–1967 LaRouche and Trotskyism

In 1948, LaRouche returned to Lynn after dropping out of college and began attending meetings of the Socialist Workers Party (SWP)'s Lynn branch. He joined the party the next year, adopting the pseudonym Lyn Marcus for his political work. According to LaRouche's autobiography, he "never encountered a member of the SWP who understood anything of Marx's economics or method." By his account, he joined the SWP after receiving assurances from SWP vice-presidential candidate Grace Carlson that the SWP was a "movement open to exploring new ideas of the type I identified."[17] The Socialist Workers Party is a communist political party in the United States. ... A pseudonym (Greek pseudo + -onym: false name) is an artificial, fictitious name, also known as an alias, used by an individual as an alternative to a persons true name. ... Grace Carlson (1906 – 1992) was an American Communist politician. ...


LaRouche obtained work as a management consultant in New York City, advising companies on how to use computers to maximise efficiency and speed up production. In 1954, he married fellow SWP member Janice Neuberger. Their son, Daniel, was born in 1956. By 1961, the LaRouches lived in a large apartment on Central Park West. His activity in the internal life of the SWP was minimal due to his preoccupation with his career. Management consulting is the process of helping companies to improve or transform themselves. ...

In 1964, while still in the SWP, LaRouche became associated with a faction called the Revolutionary Tendency, which had been expelled from the party and was under the influence of the British Trotskyist leader Gerry Healy, leader of the British Socialist Labour League.[citation needed] For six months, LaRouche worked closely with American Healyite leader Tim Wohlforth, who later wrote: The International Communist League (Fourth Internationalist) (formerly the international Spartacist tendency) is a Trotskyist international organisation. ...

LaRouche had a gargantuan ego. Convinced he was a genius, he combined his strong conviction in his own abilities with an arrogance expressed in the cadences of upper-class New England. He assumed that the comment in the Communist Manifesto that "a small section of the ruling class cuts itself adrift, and joins the revolutionary class…" was written specifically for him. And he believed that the working class were lucky to obtain his services. This article is about the region in the United States of America. ...

LaRouche possessed a marvelous ability to place any world happening in a larger context, which seemed to give the event additional meaning, but his thinking was schematic, lacking factual detail and depth. It was contradictory. His explanations were a bit too pat, and his mind worked so quickly that I always suspected his bravado covered over superficiality. He had an answer for everything. Sessions with him reminded me of a parlor game: present a problem, no matter how petty, and without so much as blinking his eye, LaRouche would dream up the solution.[18] A schematic of the Washington Metro. ...

He remained in the SWP until his expulsion in 1965. He maintains that he was soon disillusioned with Marxism, dropped out of the SWP in the mid-1950s, and resumed his activism only at the prompting of the FBI citing national security concerns. In an interview on the Pacifica Radio network, LaRouche said that he returned to the SWP because he believed that only the Left was likely to combat what he called the "utopian" danger coming from the Right, typified by the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War.[19] His ex-wife and other SWP members from that time dispute this.[citation needed] During these years, LaRouche developed an interest in economics, cybernetics, psychoanalysis, business management and other subjects.

In 1965, LaRouche left Tim Wohlforth's group and joined the Spartacist League, which had split from Wohlforth. He left after a few months and wrote a letter to the SWP declaring that all factions and sections of the Trotskyist Fourth International were dead, and announcing that he and his new partner, Carol Larrabee (also known as Carol Schnitzer), were going to build the Fifth International.

He began teaching classes at New York City's Free School on dialectical materialism and attracted around him a group of undergraduates and graduate students from Columbia University and the City College of New York, several of whom were involved with the Maoist Progressive Labor Party (PLP), itself very prominent in the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). In the 1988 version of his autobiography, LaRouche writes that he was not really a Marxist when he gave his lectures at the Free School but that he used his familiarity with Marxism to win students away from the New Left counterculture. Indeed, what LaRouche began to write and teach in the late 1960s was somewhat different from orthodox Marxism, supplementing the doctrine of class struggle with a strong emphasis on the dangers of a supposedly parasitical finance capital as opposed to industrial capital; he would continue with this latter emphasis in the following decade while abandoning for the most part the use of Marxist jargon.

LaRouche's followers were heavily involved in the 1968 student strike and occupation of Columbia, and attempted to win control of the university's SDS and PLP branches by putting forward a political program linking student struggles with those of blacks in Harlem, tenants and transit workers. During the same time frame, LaRouche and his associates were intervening into the New York City teachers' strike that fall, on the side of the union, which was led by Al Shanker. According to LaRouche's autobiography, his main opponents in this were the New Left groupings, who LaRouche claims were being directed from behind the scenes by McGeorge Bundy and the Ford Foundation. LaRouche also says of this conflict that, on the part of those who were attacking the largely Jewish teachers' union, "[t]here were ugly anti-Semitic noises from various groups..."[20] In early March 1967, a Columbia University SDS activist named Bob Feldman reportedly discovered documents in the International Law Library detailing Columbias institutional affiliation with the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA), a think-tank affiliated with the US Department of Defense. ...

The Ford Foundation is a charitable foundation based in New York City created to fund programs that promote democracy, reduce poverty, promote international understanding, and advance human achievement. ...


LaRouche's growing following allowed him to create his own tendency within Columbia SDS competing with the "Action Faction," led by Mark Rudd (which soon became the Weather Underground) and the "Praxis Axis," which saw students as the vanguard of the revolution. LaRouche organized his faction as the "SDS Labor Committee," which would later develop strong influence within SDS chapters in Philadelphia. He criticized the SDS and the New Left in general, for allowing itself to be influenced by the counterculture, which he abhorred, and not enough toward labor. Wohlforth attended one of LaRouche's meetings in New York during this period, and writes: Mark William Rudd (born June 2, 1947 in Irvington, New Jersey) is an American educator and anti-war activist. ...

Twenty to 30 students would gather in a large apartment and sit on the floor surrounding LaRouche, who now sported a very shaggy beard. The meeting would sometimes go on as long as seven hours. It was difficult to tell where discussions of tactics left off and educational presentation began. Encouraging the students, LaRouche gave them esoteric assignments, such as searching through the writings of Georges Sorel to discover Rudd's anarchistic origins, or studying Rosa Luxemburg's The Accumulation of Capital. Since SDS was strong on spirit and action but rather bereft of theory, the students appeared to thoroughly enjoy this work.[18] Georges Eugène Sorel (2 November 1847-29 August 1922) was a French philosopher and theorist of revolutionary syndicalism. ... Rosa Luxemburg Rosa Luxemburg (March 5, 1870 or 1871 – January 15, 1919, in Polish Róża Luksemburg) was a Jewish Polish-born Marxist political theorist, socialist philosopher, and revolutionary. ...

After its expulsion from SDS in 1969 for supporting the New York City teachers' strike, the SDS Labor Committee became the National Caucus of Labor Committees (NCLC), while continuing to function in some SDS chapters outside New York. Despite its name, it had no significant connection with the labor movement and viewed intellectuals as the revolutionary vanguard. According to Dennis King, NCLC's internal life became highly regimented over the next few years. Members gave up their jobs and private lives and became entirely devoted to the group and its leader. The movement developed an internal discipline technique, "ego stripping," which was intended to reinforce conformity and loyalty to LaRouche.[21][22] Defunct California Proposition 64 North American Labour Party Party for the Commonwealth of Canada Parti pour la république du Canada U.S. Labor Party The National Caucus of Labor Committees (NCLC) is a political cadre organization in the United States founded and controlled by political activist Lyndon LaRouche, who...


"Operation Mop Up"

A 1973 internal FBI letter recommended that, as part of its COINTELPRO, the FBI provide anonymous aid to a background investigation by the Communist Party USA, which wanted to eliminate LaRouche as a political threat.

In 1973, according to some press accounts, the NCLC adopted violent and disruptive tactics under LaRouche's direction. According to the Village Voice, NCLC members physically attacked meetings of the Communist Party and later of the SWP, and other groups who were classed by LaRouche as "left-protofascists."

The NCLC argued that they were acting merely in self-defense, but according to Dennis King, their rhetoric suggested otherwise. "From here on in," LaRouche proclaimed at a mass meeting of his East Coast followers, "the CP cannot hold a meeting on the East Coast....We'll mop them up in two months."[25] His newspaper echoed this call in an editorial:

We must dispose of this stinking corpse [the CP] to ensure that it cannot act as a host for maggots and other parasites...Our job is to pulverize the Communist Party.[26]

According to LaRouche's autobiography, violent altercations between his organization and New Left organizations actually began in 1969, preceding the period referred to as "Mop up." He writes: The New Left is a term used in different countries to describe left-wing movements that occurred in the 1960s and 1970s. ... For the Stargate SG-1 episode, see 1969 (Stargate SG-1). ...

According to King, LaRouche halted Operation Mop Up after police in New York City, Buffalo, Philadelphia and Boston arrested several of his followers on assault charges, and after the CP, the Socialist Workers Party, and other leftist groups formed joint defense teams and began to win battles against the Mop Up squads.[28]

The 1974 "brainwashing" scare

In 1974, The New York Times reported on a belief inside the LaRouche organization that one of LaRouche's followers had been kidnapped and brainwashed by the CIA to become a Manchurian Candidate-style assassin against LaRouche.[29] The LaRouche group announced at a national conference that the plot involved the CIA and KGB, and that the brainwashed would-be assassin was Chris White, a 26-year-old British national who had married LaRouche's ex-girlfriend, Carol Schnitzer, before moving with her to London to organize a British branch of the NCLC.[30][31] King writes: The New York Times is a daily newspaper published in New York City by Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr. ... Dorlands Medical Dictionary defines brainwashing (also known as thought reform or re-education) as any systematic effort aimed at instilling certain attitudes and beliefs in a person against his will, usually beliefs in conflict with his prior beliefs and knowledge. ... The Manchurian Candidate is a 1959 novel by Richard Condon. ...

...members from across the country had gathered in New York for the conference. The suspense began to mount as alarming rumors emanated from LaRouche's apartment. It was said that White had been tortured and brainwashed in a London basement by the CIA and British intelligence, who had programmed him first to kill his wife upon the utterance of a trigger word and then to finger LaRouche for assassination by Cuban exile frogmen.


LaRouche mobilized the entire NCLC. They passed out fliers on a massive scale in New York and other cities, describing White's alleged tortures in lurid detail. The national office issued over forty press releases in a two-week period. LaRouche and the Whites filed a complaint with the United Nations Commission on Human Rights and launched a lawsuit against the CIA. NCLC members frantically solicited their parents and friends to serve on an Emergency Commission of Inquiry.[32]

1971–1979

On December 2, 1971 LaRouche engaged in a spirited debate with leading Keynesian economist Abba Lerner at Queens College, in New York City. The debate pertained to arguments put forward in a leaflet by LaRouche's National Caucus of Labor Committees, specifically on the questions of the wage and price controls and austerity policies being put into place at that time by the Nixon administration, and by Brazil's military regime. Lerner offered a qualified defense of those policies against LaRouche's claim that they represented a revival of the ideas of Hjalmar Schacht. According to the only published accounts, those of the LaRouche organization, Lerner said, “But if Germany had accepted Schacht's policies, Hitler would not have been necessary.” LaRouche supporters claim that Lerner's friend, the late philosopher Sidney Hook, attended the debate and stated, "LaRouche won the debate" but "will lose much more as a result of that." [39] LaRouche interpreted Hook's remark to mean that the "establishment" in economics departments in academia would unite against him and no longer debate him, for fear of another upset.

In 1971, LaRouche organized the New Solidarity International Press Service as a wire service for his publications. He founded the weekly Executive Intelligence Review and co-founded the Fusion Energy Foundation.


By the mid-1970s, LaRouche and his movement were no longer promoting a socialist agenda. Readings of Marx and Lenin were off the reading list of LaRouche's followers, and would be replaced by Alexander Hamilton, Friedrich Schiller, Plato, Avicenna, Nicolas of Cusa and others. A key factor in the shift on economics may be found in the published articles of NCLC Executive Committee member Allen Salisbury on Henry Carey and the American System school of political economy, culminating in his book, The Civil War and the American System. The LaRouche organization, after some deliberation and dissent, adopted Salisbury's thesis, that the American System approach was different from, and superior to, either Marxism or laissez-faire capitalism, and the organization's publications rapidly reflected this re-assessment. Another book was published, a collection of source documents entitled The Political Economy of the American Revolution. LaRouche also became a strong advocate of nuclear energy and directed energy technologies for ballistic missile defense. Alexander Hamilton (January 11, 1755 or 1757–July 12, 1804) was an Army officer, lawyer, Founding Father, American politician, leading statesman, financier and political theorist. ...

LaRouche founded the U.S. Labor Party in the early 1970s as a vehicle for electoral politics, maintaining that both the major parties had abandoned the American System economic policies that the LaRouche organization had embraced (LaRouche named Alexander Hamilton and Benjamin Franklin as exemplars of this school of thought). LaRouche argued that his theoretical developments in physical economics made clear that the American System was the system of political economy best suited to make nations credit-worthy producer economies.

LaRouche visited Baghdad in 1975, during which he made a presentation to the Baath Party conference on the topic of his "Oasis Plan," a proposal for Arab-Israeli peace based on the joint construction of massive water projects. LaRouche has also maintained contacts and meetings with Israeli peace activists including Nahum Goldmann (1978), then head of the World Jewish Congress, and a meeting with Abba Eban, former Israeli representative to the UN.

In 1976, he ran for President of the United States as a U.S. Labor Party candidate, polling 40,043 votes (0.05%). This campaign was the first to broadcast a paid half-hour television address, which gave LaRouche the opportunity to air his views before a national audience. This was to become a regular feature of later campaigns during the 1980s and 1990s.

In a September 24, 1976 op-ed in the Washington Post, entitled "NCLC: A Domestic Political Menace," Stephen Rosenfeld wrote: "We of the press should be chary of offering them print or air time.

Criticism of LaRouche, 1979-1985

The most common criticism of LaRouche in the mainstream press is that he is a conspiracy theorist. For more information, see Political views of Lyndon LaRouche. A conspiracy theory attempts to attribute the ultimate cause of an event or chain of events (usually political, social, or historical events), or the concealment of such causes from public knowledge, to a secret, and often deceptive plot by a covert alliance of powerful or influential people or organizations. ...

Some of LaRouche's most outspoken opponents are to be found among those who remained in the Left, after LaRouche and his followers had moved away from Marxism, as well as among conservatives and liberals. According to Tim Wohlforth and Dennis Tourish: Timothy Andrew Wohlforth is a former Trotskyist politician. ...

The parallel between LaRouche's thinking and that of the classical fascist model is striking. LaRouche, like Mussolini and Hitler before him, borrowed from Marx yet changed his theories fundamentally. Most important, Marx's internationalist outlook was abandoned in favor of a narrow nation-state perspective. Marx's goal of abolishing capitalism was replaced by the model of a totalitarian state that directs an economy where ownership of the means of production is still largely in public hands. The corporations and their owners remain in place but have to take their orders from LaRouche. Hitler called the schema "national socialism". LaRouche hopes the term "the American System" will be more acceptable.[33]

In 1977-78, a large amount of material began to be published in LaRouche publications that was regarded as anti-Semitic by the Anti-Defamation League and other outside observers as well. LaRouche associate Jeffrey Steinberg has claimed that criticism of LaRouche coming from the ADL and related organizations was an extension of the FBI COINTELPRO program. [41] The Anti-Defamation League (or ADL) is an advocacy group founded by Bnai Brith in the United States whose stated aim is to stop, by appeals to reason and conscience and, if necessary, by appeals to law, the defamation of the Jewish people. ... COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Program) was a program of the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation aimed at investigating and disrupting dissident political organizations within the United States. ...


LaRouche publications strongly denounce the policies of Mussolini and Hitler.[34][35] But he has also advanced, according to Dennis King and others, ideas which appear to be modelled on fascist and even Nazi racialist concepts.[36][37] King described some ex-NCLC members as believing that LaRouche was borrowing ideas from the Nazis. Don and Alice Roth, two members who quit in 1981, reported in their resignation statement that anti-Semitic Holocaust jokes had become rife in the organization.[38] In an examination of LaRouche's writings on political theory, King argues that LaRouche was really advocating a fascist-style state in which all political dissent would be crushed.[39] LaRouche, however, says that the model he advocates is that of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Franklin Delano Roosevelt (January 30, 1882–April 12, 1945), 32nd President of the United States, the longest-serving holder of the office and the only man to be elected President more than twice, was one of the central figures of 20th century history. ...


In 1979, a two-part article appeared in The New York Times that was strongly critical of LaRouche.[40] Also in 1979, Chip Berlet wrote his first of several articles about LaRouche for the Chicago Sun Times, while King wrote a 12-part series for the Manhattan weekly Our Town. Other in-depth critiques of LaRouche and his organization would be published over the next six years by the Washington Post, The New Republic, the Heritage Foundation, the Anti-Defamation League, and the League for Industrial Democracy.

In 1981, Berlet, King and a Detroit journalist, Russ Bellant, released a set of documents that they claimed revealed a pattern of potentially illegal activity by LaRouche and his followers, and called for the government to investigate.[41] LaRouche claimed all of this negative publicity was part of a "defamatory campaign [which] laid the political groundwork for a later, new wave of corrupt Justice Department operations launched at, once again, the instigation of Henry Kissinger."[42] Henry Alfred Kissinger (born Heinz Alfred Kissinger on May 27, 1923 in Fürth) is a German-born American diplomat, and 1973 Nobel Peace Prize laureate. ...

LaRouche has also been criticized from the political Right. The Heritage Foundation released a report, which stated that despite what they describe as LaRouche's appearance as a right-wing anticommunist, he takes political stands, "which in the end advance Soviet foreign policy goals." Longtime LaRouche critic Daniel O. Graham, former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, has stated that he believes LaRouche is an "unrepentant Marxist-Leninist" who pretended to be right-wing in order "to suck conservatives into giving him money."

In 1979, a former member of LaRouche's U.S. Labor Party, Gregory Rose, published an article in National Review alleging that LaRouche had established contacts with Palestinian political organizations such as the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and also with the Iraqi mission to the United Nations in New York. Rose also alleged that LaRouche at this time was in contact with Soviet diplomats, while also linking up with ultrarightists such as Willis Carto of the Liberty Lobby and Pennsylvania Ku Klux Klan grand dragon Roy Frankhouser.[43] National Review (NR) is a biweekly magazine of political opinion, founded by author William F.

Alleged coded discourse

Dennis King claims to have found what he terms "euphemisms,"[44] "semantic tricks,"[45] and examples of "symbolic scapegoating"[46] in LaRouche's writings which he claims contradict LaRouche's published condemnations[43] of Anti-Semitism. For example, King claims that LaRouche's published attacks on the neo-conservatives include a disguised form of anti-Semitism. King further says these examples bolster his argument (which also references certain images used in LaRouche publications) that LaRouche is a fascist whose world view secretly centers on anti-Semitism and includes a "dream of world conquest." He claims that certain photos of barred spiral galaxies and of Lawrence Livermore Laboratory plasmoid experiments which appeared in LaRouche's New Solidarity newspaper and Fusion magazine, are "reminiscent of the swastika" and of the Nazi "theory of spiraling expansion/conquest."[47] He also points to a 1978 illustration in New Solidarity of Queen Elizabeth at the top of a Star of David -- and certain headlines (in more recent LaRouche publications) such as "How the Venetian Virus Infected and Took Over England" -- to bolster his argument that LaRouche's attacks on a "British" oligarchy are often coded attacks on international Jewry.[48][49] This latter claim is disputed by author Daniel Pipes, who writes: "Dennis King insists that [LaRouche's] references to the British as the ultimate conspirators are really `code language' to refer to Jews. In fact, these are references to the British."[50] The Eternal Jew: 1937 German poster. ...

Robert L. Bartley, writing in The Wall Street Journal, criticizes the title of a LaRouche-sponsored pamphlet ("Children of Satan") attacking the neoconservatives. He quotes the pamphlet's assertion that a "cabal of [Leo] Strauss disciples, along with an equally small circle of allied neo-conservative and Likudnik fellow-travelers" have plotted a "not-so-silent coup." Noting that "Mr. LaRouche has chosen an Aryan-nation phrase for Jews (descendants of Cain, who was the result of Satan seducing Eve, in this perfervid theology)," Bartley terms the "Children of Satan" title "overt anti-Semitism." He also suggests that the use of the terms "Straussian" and "Neo-conservative" may be coded anti-Semitism when used by LaRouche and other writers.[51] Leo Strauss (September 20, 1899 – October 18, 1973), was a German-born political philosopher who specialized in the study of classical political philosophy. ...

LaRouche's 1980s alliance with former German V-2 scientists

Linda Hunt [53] and Dennis King [54] have described LaRouche's dealings with German scientists and engineers who worked for Nazi Germany during the Second World War, some of whom came to the United States after the war under Operation Paperclip and ended up with NASA. Among these scientists were Arthur Rudolph (a former Nazi party member, who had been the rocket production manager at the Mittelwerk slave-labor factory), and several other Peenemunde rocket experts, including Krafft Arnold Ehricke, Adolf Busemann, Konrad Dannenberg, and Hermann Oberth. LaRouche is also alleged to have had a relationship with Karl-Adolf Zenker and Paul-Albert Scherer, West German Admiral and former head of West German Military Intelligence, respectively, who both served in the German military in World War Two. This article is becoming very long. ... Operation Paperclip scientists pose together. ...

According to both Hunt and King, LaRouche and his followers played a major role along with General John Medaris and the community of scientists in Huntsville, Alabama in rallying to the defense of Rudolph when the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Special Investigations (OSI) filed suit to deport him as a Nazi war criminal.[55] (In 1995, the LaRouche-affiliated Schiller Institute would hold hearings on alleged corruption in the DOJ, which included criticism of the OSI (see Mann-Chestnut hearings).)

The highlight of the campaign, according to King, was a 1985 "Kraft Ehricke Memorial Conference" in Reston, Virginia featuring support of SDI, defense of Rudolph and other alleged Nazi war criminals, lavish praise for World War Two era German science and promotion of space colonization and electromagnetic weapons. During a September 3, 1987 EIR seminar in Munich, LaRouche urged the development of a new generation of these "mass-killing" weapons using the "full range of the electromagnetic spectrum" and making possible the "true total war." According to the published text of LaRouche's speech,[56] LaRouche told his German audience: "Whoever...is able to produce specific, nonlinear effects by this means, has won the power to dominate the world. We had better move quickly, before it is too late."


LaRouche files multiple libel suits

Between 1978 and 1984 LaRouche filed several libel suits.

  • In 1979, LaRouche sued Our Town and King, while the same defendants were also sued (along with the ADL) by Computron Technologies Corporation, a computer company closely associated with LaRouche. However, in 1981, LaRouche voluntarily dismissed his case against Our Town, which continued to vigorously criticize him. And that same year, the officers of Computron broke with LaRouche, denounced him, and stopped pursuing their case against Our Town and the ADL. [45]
  • In 1984, LaRouche filed a defamation suit in federal court (Eastern District of Virginia) against Berlet, King, NBC and the ADL. LaRouche dropped his case against Berlet and King but the case against NBC and the ADL went to trial. At issue, among other things, was a statement by ADL fact-finding director Irwin Suall on national TV calling LaRouche a "small-time Hitler." LaRouche lost the case, with the jury awarding $3 million in damages to NBC (an amount later reduced by Judge James Cacheris to $200,000).[57][58] When LaRouche appealed the outcome of the trial, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, in rejecting his arguments, set forth a three-prong test (later called the "LaRouche test") to decide when anonymous sources must be named in libel cases, and concluded that revealing NBC's sources had not been necessary in the LaRouche-NBC case.[59][60][61]

Political activity in 1980s

Despite having become a registered Democrat, LaRouche was harshly critical of Jimmy Carter in the November 1980 election, with whom he had competed for the Democratic Party nomination.

Beginning in 1980, LaRouche became a regular feature on American television during election years, when he was able under U.S. election law to purchase numerous 1/2 hour spots on prime time TV for political talks to the general public. The high point of this activity was in 1984, when he was able to raise enough money to purchase 14 spots. 1984 (MCMLXXXIV) was a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


LaRouche's promotion of the Strategic Defense Initiative

LaRouche became interested in the possible uses of lasers and other directed energy weapons during the 1970s. When Ronald Reagan took office in 1981, LaRouche says that he sought to share his knowledge with the new administration, hoping that these weapons could be used against nuclear missiles. Later that year, Lyndon and Helga Zepp-LaRouche met with CIA Deputy Director Bobby Ray Inman. [46] [47] Long-time LaRouche supporter and former head of German Military Intelligence, General Paul-Albert Scherer, has said: Experiment with a laser (likely an argon type) (US Military) In physics, a laser is a device that emits light through a specific mechanism for which the term laser is an acronym: light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. ... Ronald Wilson Reagan (February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004) was the 40th President of the United States (1981 – 1989) and the 33rd Governor of California (1967 – 1975). ...

Bobby Ray Inman (born 1931) was a U.S. admiral who held several influential positions in the US Intelligence community. ...

In the Spring of 1982 here in the Soviet Embassy there were very important secret talks that were held.… The question was: Did the United States and the Soviet Union wish jointly to develop an anti-ballistic missile defense that would have made nuclear war impossible? Then, in August, you had this very sharp Soviet rejection of the entire idea.… I have discussed this thoroughly with the developer, the originator of this idea, who is the scientific-technological strategic expert, Lyndon LaRouche. The [Soviet] rejection came in August, and at that point the American President Reagan decided to push this entire thing out into the public eye, so he made his speech of March 1983.[62]

A military specialist who advocated the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), retired Lt. General Daniel O. Graham, has complained about LaRouche's attempts to take credit for SDI. Graham said that he himself was the originator of the idea.[63] "They also mounted a furious attack on me personally. Even today I get mail asking if I'm in league with LaRouche," said Graham. [48] LaRouche countered, "President Reagan's initial version of SDI was consistent with what I had introduced into U.S.-Soviet back-channel discussions over the period beginning February 1982. However, immediately thereafter, the mice went to work. Daniel Graham, the leading opponent of SDI up to that time, now proclaimed himself the virtual author of the policy, and was used, thereafter, to remove all of the crucial elements from the original policy." [49] There is no independent verification of either Graham's or LaRouche's statements. The Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), commonly called Star Wars after one of the popular science fantasy movies of the time, was proposed by U.S. President Ronald Reagan on March 23, 1983[1] to use ground-based and space-based systems to protect the United States from attack by strategic... Daniel O. Graham was a U.S. Army officer. ...


Steven Bardwell, a physicist and former head of LaRouche's Fusion Energy Foundation, wrote, after leaving the LaRouche organization, that LaRouche's goal was not a defensive version of SDI but an offensive "first strike" version, and that LaRouche had privately talked about "Doomsday weapons," such as "cobalt bombs with fans."[64] LaRouche supporters maintain that LaRouche presented SDI as defensive, including when he discussed it with Reagan administration officials prior to Reagan's announcement, and that LaRouche had hoped it would be a "science driver" to revive the economies of both the United States and the Soviet Bloc. [50] [51]


The Schiller Institute

In 1984, LaRouche co-founded (along with his wife, Helga Zepp-LaRouche), the Schiller Institute, which was to be a global umbrella organization for his ideas. He was joined in this effort by several of his close friends, including American Civil Rights Movement leader Amelia Boynton Robinson, and an important leader of the French Resistance, Marie-Madeleine Fourcade.[52][53] 1984 (MCMLXXXIV) was a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

U.S. News and World Report complaint

In 1982, U.S. News and World Report sued for damages, alleging that LaRouche reporters were impersonating its reporters in phone calls. LaRouche and his aide, Jeffrey Steinberg, gave depositions that revealed that their policy was for their staff to pretend to be from non-existent publications, and that they had infiltrated the campaigns of competing presidential nominees.

LaRouche's California AIDS initiative

In 1986, LaRouche launched the Proposition 64 initiative in California, which would have placed AIDS back on that state's List of Communicable Diseases subject to Public Health law. Opponents claimed that the measure could have instituted quarantines and sexual contact tracing. After its defeat it was reintroduced two years later and again defeated.

Olof Palme assassination

Following the Olof Palme assassination on February 28, 1986, the Swedish branch of the LaRouche Movement, European Workers Party, came under scrutiny as literature published by the party was found in the apartment of the initial suspect, Viktor Gunnarsson. Also, the hate campaigns against Olof Palme run by the LaRouche Movement since the beginning of the '70s, made the party interesting from an investigative point of view. [58] Within weeks of the assassination, NBC television in the U.S. broadcast a story alleging that LaRouche was somehow responsible. [59] Later, the suspect was released.

Democratic primary election successes

In 1986, two supporters of LaRouche, Mark Fairchild and Janice Hart, won the Democratic party nominations in Illinois for the offices of Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of State, respectively. This was the first time that LaRouche supporters had won statewide nominations. The Illinois Democratic party renounced the nominations, and the Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Adlai Stevenson III refused to run on the same slate with Fairchild and Hart, instead forming the Solidarity Party.

Criminal conviction and imprisonment (1988–1994)

By the 1980s, LaRouche and Helga Zepp-LaRouche had built an extensive political network, including the Schiller Institute in Germany, headed by Zepp-LaRouche, and branches in several other countries. The LaRouche organization devoted much of its energy to the sale of literature and the soliciting of small donations at airports and on university campuses; it also solicited donations by phone. Press reports alleged that this fundraising activity sometimes involved tax law violations, the conversion of publication sales into donations for LaRouche political campaigns that were then matched by the Federal Election Commission, and fraudulent soliciting of "loans" from vulnerable elderly people. The Schiller Institute is an international political and economic thinktank and is one of the primary institutions in the Lyndon LaRouche movement, with headquarters in both Germany and the United States. ...

In October 1986, the FBI and Virginia state authorities raided the LaRouche headquarters in Leesburg in search of evidence to support the persistent accusations of fraud and extortion. LaRouche and six associates were charged with conspiracy and mail fraud related to fundraising. LaRouche was also charged with conspiring to hide his personal income since 1979, the last year he had filed a federal tax return. In December 1988, a federal jury in Alexandria, Virginia convicted LaRouche and his associates, and LaRouche was sentenced to fifteen years in prison. LaRouche served five years of his sentence and was paroled. The convictions of LaRouche and his associates were a defining moment in the history of the LaRouche network. LaRouche supporters insisted that LaRouche was jailed, not for any violation of the law, but for his beliefs.

LaRouche did not stop all political activity while in prison. He ran for president again in 1992, met with international personages, and gave interviews. During part of his imprisonment he shared a cell with televangelist Jim Bakker at the Federal Medical Center located in Rochester, Minnesota. Bakker later wrote of his astonishment at LaRouche's detailed knowledge of the Bible. According to Bakker, LaRouche received a daily briefing each morning by phone, often in German. Bakker reports that on more than one occasion LaRouche had information days before it was reported on the network news. Bakker also writes that his cellmate was paranoid and convinced that their cell was bugged.[69] LaRouche was released on parole in 1994.

In the 1996 Democratic presidential primaries, LaRouche received enough votes in Louisiana and Virginia to get one delegate from each state. However, the Democratic Party refused to grant any delegates to LaRouche, asserting that he is a convicted felon with political beliefs that are "explicitly racist and anti-Semitic," [61] LaRouche sued in federal court, claiming a violation of the Voting Rights Act. LaRouche and his supporters argued that the decision disenfranchised the voters who had cast their votes for LaRouche.[62] After losing in the district court the case was appealed to the First District Court of Appeals, which sustained the lower court.[63] (See also Lyndon LaRouche U.S. Presidential campaigns.) 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty. ...

LaRouche Youth Movement

A significant change in the LaRouche organization since LaRouche was released from prison has been the development of the LaRouche Youth Movement (LYM) beginning in 1999. Often described as a cult, which employs brainwashing techniques,[citation needed] the LYM's recruitment of young people in the 18-25 year-old age bracket has reportedly brought more members into the LaRouche organization than at any time in the past.

Jeremiah Duggan

Main article: Jeremiah Duggan

International publicity about LaRouche was sparked between 2003 and 2007 after Jeremiah Duggan, a Jewish student from the UK attending a conference and cadre school organized by the Schiller Institute and LaRouche Youth Movement, died in mysterious circumstances in Wiesbaden. LaRouche publications say Duggan was suicidal, and the German police on the scene maintained that his death appeared to be a suicide. A British court ruled out suicide and decided that Duggan died while "in a state of terror." [68] A spokesman for the German public prosecution service has suggested that the murder theories have developed because Duggan's mother cannot accept that her son committed suicide, and the Wiesbadener Kurier has called the theories "myths" and a "conspiracy theory with more and more adherents, but no evidence."[73] Jeremiah Duggan Jeremiah Jerry Duggan (November 10, 1980 – March 27, 2003), a British student at the Sorbonne in Paris, died after being hit by several cars while running down the middle of a busy road near Wiesbaden, Germany. ...

Kenneth Kronberg

On April 11, 2007 in Sterling, Virginia, a longtime LaRouche associate, Kenneth Kronberg, 58, jumped to his death from a highway overpass, allegedly in despair at the failure of the LaRouche organization to pay his printing company for its work. The company was set up in 1978 under the supervision of LaRouche to print material for the LaRouche movement. Nicholas Benton, writing in the Falls Church News-Press, suggested that pressures from within the LaRouche organization may have played a role in the suicide. Benton wrote that the LaRouche organization's "morning briefing" that day had attacked Kronberg's printing company and had suggested that recalcitrant Baby Boomers in LaRouche's ranks commit suicide. According to Benton, after calling the print shop "among the worst" of the baby boomer generation, the briefing said: "the Boomers will be scared into becoming human, because you’re the real world, and they’re not. Unless they want to commit suicide."[74][75] April 11 is the 101st day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (102nd in leap years). ... 2007 (MMVII) is the current year, a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar and the Anno Domini era. ...

Responding to the Kronberg suicide, writer Dennis King, a critic of the LaRouche movement, has asked former members of the LaRouche organization to publicize any information they might have about the operations of the group.[69] The Justice for Jeremiah website devoted to the case of Jeremiah Duggan (see above) also deals with Kronberg's death and its aftermath. The LaRouche Political Action Committee issued a response, saying that "King has posted a series of smears on his website and other internet blogs concerning the recent death of long-time leading LaRouche collaborator Kenneth L. Kronberg. These slanders, along with King's posting of stolen documents, are a distasteful exploitation of a personal tragedy in pursuit of [John] Train's political vendetta against LaRouche and a disrespectful disregard for the memory of Kronberg."[70]


Members of Kronberg's family have set up a website which posts a number of the documents in the case. [71]

Works

Lyndon LaRouche has written hundreds of articles, pamphlets, and books published mostly by his own press. Over the years he has displayed a certain penchant for unusual and catchy essay titles such as "Why Poetry must begin to Supersede Mathematics in Physics," "Beneath the Waters of Chappaquiddick," "Why Jimmy Carter Is Not a Christian," "Now, Do You Sleep with One Eye Open?",[78] "Secrets Known Only to the Inner Elites," and "Bush Demands His Own Impeachment." His earliest book, published as a hardback textbook in the mid-1970s, is Dialectical Economics: An Introduction to Marxist Political Economy. He subsequently wrote a book on political theory, The Case of Walter Lippmann (1977); his autobiography The Power of Reason (1980); There Are No Limits to Growth (1983); and a second autobiography, The Power of Reason 1988. His 1984 popularization of his economic theories, So, You Wish To Learn All About Economics, circulates internationally in several languages, as does The Science of Christian Economy, and other prison writings, (1991). LaRouche issued The Road to Recovery (1999) in conjunction with his 2000 Presidential campaign. LaRouche's most recent book is The Economics of the Noosphere (2001.) [76]


LaRouche in popular culture

LaRouche is often referenced in popular culture. He is typically portrayed as a paranoid conspiracy theorist. One characterization of LaRouche's ideas, by one-time NBC reporter Mark Nykanen, was that "he believes the Queen of England pushes drugs"; this has been repeated by so many other commentators, that it is widely believed that LaRouche actually said it.[77] Popular culture, sometimes called pop culture, (literally: the culture of the people) consists of widespread cultural elements in any given society. ... NBC (an acronym for National Broadcasting Company) is an American television network headquartered in the GE Building in New York Citys Rockefeller Center. ...

  • In "Treehouse of Horror VII" episode of The Simpsons, which aired shortly before the 1996 presidential election, Homer finds President Bill Clinton and his Republican opponent Bob Dole imprisoned, nude, inside an alien spaceship, and exclaims: "Oh, no. Aliens, bio-duplication, nude conspiracies. Oh, my God. Lyndon LaRouche was right!" In "The Old Man and the Lisa," Mr. Burns promises to take the residents of Springfield Retirement Castle (who are working for him) to the most duck-filled pond they've ever seen if they meet their quota, and Grampa Simpson comments that "that's how they got me to vote for Lyndon LaRouche!"
  • In "Time Again and World," the sixth episode of the second season of the science fiction television series Sliders, the heroes visit a parallel universe where LaRouche is the President of the United States.
  • In the Futurama episode "A Head in the Polls", the character Bender seeks to join the heads of U.S. presidents that are kept in a museum in jars. He is told that he could have a spot in the closet of presidential losers, upon which Bob Dole (from within the closet) states: "Bob Dole needs company... LaRouche won't stop with the knock knock jokes!"
  • Excerpts from a rambling LaRouche speech appear on the track "Lyndon LaRouche vs. the Abominable Snowman (You Can't Put the Genie Back Into the Bottle)" by the experimental music group "Sons of Bitches."
  • The followers of LaRouche were referred to in an episode of the webcomic Ozy and Millie. [78]
  • "Saturday Night Live" in the mid-1980s had a series of skits called "Lyndon LaRouche Theatre", satirizing his national TV ads by casting them as a parody of Masterpiece Theatre (LaRouche typically spoke from an armchair in a library.) For example, one skit shows Queen Elizabeth II as a drug dealer. (The author of these skits, comedian Al Franken, broke his glasses helping security personnel remove a LaRouche follower who was heckling Howard Dean during the 2004 Presidential primary season in New Hampshire.[79])
  • "The Lyndon B. LaRouche Love Club" was the name of a hardcore punk band in Santa Cruz, California, in the early 1980s, combining the names of LaRouche and Lyndon B. Johnson.
  • LaRouche is mentioned in the movie "So I Married an Axe Murderer": "Look. He's giving Tony all that Lyndon H. LaRouche rubbish again."
  • In 1983, an issue of Howard Chaykin's American Flagg comic book series included a full page drawing of U.S. Labor Party (LaRouchian) soldiers in gas masks. The caption underneath describes the U.S.L.P. as an anti-British and anti-Semitic cult and says its members live in caves outside Chicago (this is in a post-nuclear holocaust USA) and are led by a mysterious LaRouche successor named "Decker."
  • LaRouche was a frequent target for satire in the 1980s Bloom County comic strip. One example was "The Great LaRouche Toad-Frog Massacree," [80] which appeared as an introduction to a 1988 collection of Bloom County comics.
  • In an episode of Blue Collar TV the character Larry the Cable Guy confuses baseball player Adam LaRoche's name with Lyndon LaRouche.
  • In the "Assassins" expansion set of Illuminati: New World Order, a collectible card game published by Steve Jackson Games, LaRouche appears as a Personality.
  • On an episode of MXC called "Squeeze Out the Vote" where Democrats, Republicans, and Independents faced one another, the sideline announcer was named Lyndon LeDouche based on the name of regular sideline announcer Guy LeDouche, and based on the word play of real names so prevalent in the show.
