Obama Has a Problem
August 19, 2014 • 4:45PM

President Obama has a big problem. The problem has a name. The name is Boehner. Every time that Obama takes an action calculated to further destroy the United States, whether through policies of outright genocide against the American people, or through illegal unconstitutional wars abroad—as in the current Iraq War III case—he has Speaker of the House John Boehner to run cover for him. Boehner has given Obama the green light to proceed with the bombing campaign in Iraq without coming to Congress, just as he has proclaimed that impeachment is "off the table."

The net effect is that the United States under Obama is heading towards total collapse, whether by a combination of food and water shortages and the genocidal effects of the Obamacare takedown of the U.S. health care system, or by the escalating confrontations against Russia and China that are leading towards general war, potentially thermonuclear war. Boehner may sooth his fellow Republicans by claiming that he is merely giving Obama and the Democrats enough rope to hang themselves, but that is nonsense. Boehner is complicit in the same genocide against the American people that Obama is guilty of—all on behalf of a British financial system that is totally bankrupt and is about to blow up altogether.

In discussion with colleagues Tuesday, Lyndon LaRouche reiterated that there are corrective measures that he has clearly spelled out that can shut down the criminal operations driving the world to war. "The reality," LaRouche stated,

is that the collapse of nutrition and health care in the United States is a form of outright genocide. Without a clear program to meet the legitimate demands of the American people, we are headed for a far worse genocide.
That is the crime for which Obama and Boehner are both guilty and must be immediately removed from office.

The provisions for impeachment of a President also provide for the mechanism to remove and replace a Speaker of the House. Any Member of the House of Representatives can introduce a privileged resolution to debate and vote for the Speaker's removal. It can happen on any day that the House is in session. The ouster of Boehner would leave Obama totally exposed. Since the entire House votes on the selection and removal of a Speaker, a bipartisan coalition can easily bounce Boehner and pull down the protection of Obama from impeachment.

Clearly there are some Members of Congress who know that the system is on the brink once again and that the trans-Atlantic region is headed for a crash far beyond 2007-2009. A group of 14 Senators and Representatives wrote to Janet Yellen on Aug. 18 warning her against plans for another bailout of the too-big-to-fail banks under the interpretation of sections of Dodd-Frank. They wrote the preemptive strike letter because they are at least somewhat aware that the whole system is about to crash. The European banks are doomed, and Italian and French banks are in immediate jeopardy.

It is out of this desperation that Obama, on orders from London and in league with Tony Blair and David Cameron, is promoting a bunch of self-professed hardcore Nazis in Ukraine to drive the world to a new world war. LaRouche also singled out German Chancellor Angela Merkel as yet another failed European leader who should be removed from her post for the sake of saving Germany from total collapse. Between her shutting down of Germany's nuclear power sector and her going along with the sanctions against Russia that could wipe out much of Germany's precious Mittelstand, she has demonstrated her incompetence or worse.

There are clear solutions that LaRouche has spelled out—starting with the immediate reinstatement of Glass Steagall before the looming crash. Anyone in their right mind should see that this is the immediate and urgent first step. The actions by the BRICS nations, China's lead in the drive for thermonuclear fusion and for the mining of Helium-3 on the Moon are exemplary of the kinds of alternatives that are immediately available. Dump Boehner, end the protection racket surrounding Obama and bring the United States into alignment with the spirit of China, India, Russia, Brazil, South Africa, Egypt.

There must, LaRouche emphasized, be a "total change in approach" to dealing with the crises facing mankind. The new approach is epitomized by the China quest for Helium-3. It is a change in the state of mind that looks boldly into the future—not because there are clear and certain answers, but because the quest for a future drives a process of scientific discovery.

The alternatives are precisely the kind of genocide that we are seeing in Africa with the unchecked spreading of Ebola. Go back to LaRouche's mid-1970s ecological holocaust forecast and you see that the root cause of this new outbreak is the long-standing empire policy of looting of Africa's raw materials and people. That looting policy has now reached the point where a deadly killer disease is spreading unchecked all over Africa, into Europe and the Americas.
