The following ad appears in the October 15th printed edition of the D.C. daily The Hill, which is read in every Congressional office and by thousands of others. It was distributed broadly in Washington and across the country by LaRouche Political Action Committee activists. With the "deal" to settle the shutdown simply postponing the deadlines for government funding and raising the budget ceiling for a few months, the population, and the members of Congress, are now fully aware of Obama's total agreement with the radical Republicans that social security and Medicare must be drastically cut, to service the continuing bail out of Wall Street.For background on LaRouchePAC's escalation in the campaign to stop the Obama/Wall Street campaign for genocide in the United States please see Mr LaRouche's call to "Stop Genocide Against American Citizens! " Mike Billington
We Stopped Obama’s Unconstitutional War in Syria Now Stop Obama’s Wall Street War on the United States of AmericaThe intention of the current operation to shut down the U.S. Government on the part of Wall Street and President Obama, is to stop Glass-Steagall, and to start a policy of bail-in, and even further draconian cuts to our living standards, all of which will lead to an increase in the death rate of American citizens. This was the content of the meeting which Obama held with leading Wall Street banksters, including Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase; Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs; and Anshu Jain, CEO of Deutsche Bank, at the White House on October 2nd.Obama, the Democratic leadership, and their Congressional Republican cohorts, on orders from Wall Street, which thinks it owns our government, are going to unleash absolute Hell on the American public. The government shutdown is the biggest dog-and-phony show over. And yet how many otherwise honest Senators and Congressmen have fallen for it, out of fear of the White House, and of those in the leadership of their own parties, who are going along to get along with Wall Street?It is time for Congress to break with the Wall Street banksters, their stooge in the White House, and their stooges on Capitol Hill.Recently, Democratic and Republican Congressmen and Senators mobilized to prevent Obama from launching an unconstitutional war in Syria without Congressional authorization.Now, where are the patriotic Democrats and Republicans who will act to defend the U.S. population’s General Welfare against Wall Street? Where are the Democrats and Republicans who have the courage and commitment described by John F. Kennedy in his Profiles in Courage?Franklin Roosevelt threw the moneychangers out of the temple by signing Glass-Steagall into law. There are bills in both houses of Congress to reenact Glass-Steagall . Who will be today’s Glass and Steagall, not just when nothing is at stake, but under political combat conditions? Who is really serious about the future of our nation?It is not enough to lend one’s name as a co-sponsor to a bill to reenact Glass-Steagall. It is necessary to cut through the fog of war, not to be distracted, not to be diverted by the countermoves of the enemy, in this case, Wall Street.It is the American people who are too big to fail. It is their General Welfare that must be promoted, not that of Wall Street.Wall Street’s parasitical speculative activity is a cancer on the body politic. It needs to be removed, not fed.
There is no other solution to this crisis. As Roosevelt said, “the only thing to fear is fear itself.” Glass-Steagall must be reenacted now!The undersigned endorse this statement for publication in a LaRouchePAC newspaper ad in Washington D.C.
