Assange Extradition Denied, But a Presidential Pardon Is Needed

British Judge Vanessa Baraitser today rejected the extradition request of the U.S. government for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and ruled that it would be oppressive to extradite him to the United States where he might commit suicide in prison, Kevin Gosztola, managing editor of Shadowproof website, reported on Twitter and Jaclyn Diaz on NPR today. Judge Baraitser set a bail hearing for Wednesday, Jan. 6. The judge accepted essentially all of the U.S. Justice Department's charges against Assange lock, stock and barrel, and even implied he could be charged under the British Official Secrets Act as well. All involved understand that a pardon by President Donald Trump is the only way to end the physical and mental depression of Assange’s health under indefinite imprisonment, which caused Baraitser’s surprise denial of extradition. Perhaps she got the message that the UK wants to kill Assange itself, rather than having him commit suicide in the US, or potentially be pardoned there.

Citizens Commission on Truth in Elections—Defeat the Vote Fraud [updated with videos]

The LaRouche Organization and the Schiller Institute today hosted a powerful virtual Town Hall meeting with representatives of the state legislatures and activists from four of the states in which the presidential election is contested, and others, presenting evidence of the massive vote fraud and irregularities in the election, and discussing the profound impact of this fight for the future of the nation and the world. The forum was part of a mobilization of concerned citizens to create a Citizens Commission for Truth in Elections, which will hold a founding conference on Jan. 17. As expressed by the moderator Dennis Speed of the Schiller Institute in opening the Town Hall meeting, the stealing of the Nov. 3 election is not only a threat to Donald Trump’s reelection, nor even simply to the U.S. Constitution, but a threat to civilization, to determine—in the words of Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War regarding the American System experiment—“testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure.”

An Inflection Point in Building a Movement

Saturday’s explosive meeting of the LaRouche movement was an incredible breakthrough, showing how LaRouche’s vision can draw together political leaders, community activists, and thoughtful citizens representing various constituencies, around a higher concept of statecraft and mankind. In the process comes the great joy of discovering, together, a higher concept that subsumes the various causes that have prompted people of conscience and courage to commit themselves to. That dialogue shows how the Wednesday, Jan. 6 historic developments in Washington, D.C. can serve as an inflection point in building a political constituency for LaRouche’s far-reaching ideas and policies.

Pennsylvania Rep Says ‘We Just Don’t Know Who Won,’ Moots Sending No PA Electors to Congress

Pennsylvania State Rep. Russ Diamond and a group of other legislators from that state are raising the possibility that no presidential electors will be sent from Pennsylvania to Congress on Wednesday, Jan. 6. This follows from their conclusion that the sweeping extent of the voting irregularities, and the illegal, non-legislated nature of the electoral procedures, the winner of the election is simply unknown.

Senator Cruz and Members of Congress Speak Out Against Certifying Biden Victory

Appearing on the Maria Bartiromo show this morning, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, who assembled a group of 11 GOP senators to object to the certification of the Nov. 3 election and propose a ten-day audit of the election, supports withholding certification of the electors from half a dozen states, until such an audit is completed. Responding to polls showing a large portion of U.S. voters who believe there was fraud during the election, Cruz expressed his disappointment that the Supreme Court declined to take cases from Pennsylvania and Texas, denying that forum as a way of resolving the issues presented. Therefore, he reasoned, the Congress has a responsibility to determine whether the election was properly conducted.

LaRouche On Reconstituting Ben Franklin's Republic

"Today, civilization is threatened by a spreading and deepening crisis far more ominous than that mastered by Benjamin Franklin and his collaborators, but the underlying issues remain essentially the same; the methods for combatting this crisis remain also essentially the same.” Lyndon LaRouche’s observation, made 37 years ago on Dec. 31, 1983, is eerily appropriate for the present moment.

British Malthusianism Is the Worst Enemy Facing All Nations in 2021

We should have no illusions about what is facing the citizens of the United States and every nation in 2021. This year will be one of all-out battle with revived Malthusianism—the dogma that our resources are too few and we are too many and must be culled, our populations reduced. Growing in force since the disaster of the 2015 Paris Climate Accord, this British Malthusianism is backed by the financial powers of the City of London, by the Wall Street global investment firms and banks, and all the most powerful central banks, now including the Federal Reserve which has just defied President Donald Trump by joining the Bank of England’s “Network for Greening the Financial System.” This plague of economic and political life now goes under the names of “zero carbon”—and from the financial elite, the “Great Reset.”

Sare for Senate: Tragedy or Victory? Ben Franklin and Lyndon LaRouche Are Watching Us Now

The following statement was issued by Diane Sare, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat of Chuck Schumer in New York. 

Every human being of good will is challenged in the first days of the New Year to muster their strength for an intense battle ahead. This is not only about the results of the November, 2020 U.S. Presidential elections, which were an atrocity against the U.S. Constitution and the American people, but the intended “Global Reset,” which the international forces behind the Biden fraud intend to impose on every human being on the planet, with devastating consequences.

A New Year, A New Paradigm

In the year 2021, we must succeed in creating the new international paradigm Lyndon LaRouche fought for throughout his life, and which his movement continues.

On the global scale, there is an enormous battle being fought out in numerous fields of action—a battle to replace, finally, the oligarchical system that has existed, with ebbs and flows, through human history, a system that exists most prominently today in the form of the British financial-intelligence empire of the City of London, Wall Street, and the Five Eyes intelligence agencies. That oligarchical system’s greatest individual opponent over the recent half-century was Lyndon LaRouche, who identified his enemy with a powerful precision, and organized leaders and people around the world for his perspective and policy proposals. That work was conducted in collaboration with his movement and most notably with his wife Helga Zepp-LaRouche, who leads present efforts to create a new paradigm in the world, in coherence with her late husband’s outlook.
