Recently, after posting an article about Donald Trump's movement exhibiting cult characteristics, I was sent these two links below and asked what I thought of their content?
I replied that the author of the first of these documents demonstrated that he had extensive knowledge of the paranoid fiction controlling the cultic racket known as the 'LaRouche Movement,' but that although he also knew plenty about Donald Trump, he seemed to have no knowledge of the President's deep-involvement with 'MLM' cultic racketeering. That said, the author would appear to understand that, currently, the White House is occupied by a life-long mythomaniac/charlatan who has exhibited similar personality traits to Lyndon LaRouche, and who will go to almost any lengths rather than be investigated and held to account.
As far as I'm aware, Donald Trump has no direct connection with Lyndon LaRouche, but the two of them are notorious 'conspiracy theorists' who have been indirectly linked via other notorious 'conspiracy theorists,' like Alex Jones. Thus it has come as no surprise to me that Donald Trump's 'conspiracy theories' are increasingly mirroring those of Lyndon LaRouche and vice versa.
Perhaps the most extraordinary indirect connection between Messrs Trump and LaRouche, is the fact that the latter is mentioned (albeit briefly) in the dossier compiled about the former by ex MI6 officer, Christopher Steele, and which contains a catalogue of claims regarding Trump's links to the Putin regime. The name 'Lyndon LaRouche' appears at the bottom of page 15 of the controversial dossier along with the claim that (according to a 'Kremlin official involved in US relations') Putin's regime has been 'supporting' him.
Not surprisingly, when Steele's dossier became public in January, it was immediately attacked, and ridiculed, in 'LaRouche Movement' propaganda, as an 'Anti-Trump/Putin Hoax.' Indeed, at first glance, LaRouche's explanation of Steele's dossier is essentially identical to that of Trump himself. Furthermore, although LaRouche's presence in the dossier was acknowledged, suspiciously, 'LaRouche Movement' propaganda didn't fully-explain what was said about him or offer a link to the document.
It's not a secret that Donald Trump avidly watches Fox News and that a lot of what he tweets is directly influenced by what he finds there. Last week, a relatively-unknown media pundit/federal judge/legal academic, Andrew Napolitano, broadcast an unsubstantiated story on Fox News. Initially this event went virtually unnoticed, but it set off a chain reaction which quickly hit world headlines and led to a tragicomic diplomatic incident between the UK and USA, and also to Mr. Napolitano apparently being given the push by Fox News and going into temporary hiding.
In brief - in all seriousness, Mr. Napolitano claimed to a wide-eyed Fox News interviewer (who asked for no supporting evidence) that 'three intelligence sources' had informed Fox News that the main British intelligence gathering agency, GCHQ, had secretly (and illegally) spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign at the request of President Obama.
Perhaps it's just an unfortunate coincidence?, but Andrew Napolitano knows Donald Trump personally. He even has an apartment at the Trump International Hotel and Tower in New York City.
Napolitano went on to imply that the reason why the head of GCHQ, Richard Hannington, has recently resigned is directly linked to these Trump-spying activities.
The same unsubstantiated fiction was later officially put forward as fact by President Trump's mouthpiece, Sean Spicer, who cited Fox News, Andrew Napolitano and 'three intelligence sources.' As a result, GCHQ took the unprecedented step of publicly responding to President Trump's apparent acceptance of this story, by stating that these claims were 'nonsense, utterly ridiculous and should be ignored.'
The UK Prime Minister issued a similar statement, whilst the White House promised that the
story would not be repeated.
Fox News also publicly disowned Napolitano's statement.
Former CIA analyst, Larry C. Johnson (yet another guest of Alex Jones with a reputation for peddling pro-right-wing political hoaxes), has recently been identified as one of Napolitano's 'three intelligence sources.' However, Johnson has also claimed that he got his own information from 'very good friends,' whilst during his recent appearance on 'Russia Today,' he seemed strangely-muddled (for a former CIA man) as to the actual name of the UK's famous GCHQ intelligence gathering agency, which he has kept referring to as 'GHCQ.'
Another one of these 'three intelligence sources' (who is also probably one of Larry C. Johnson's 'very good friends') is apparently yet another former CIA agent, Philip Giraldi. February 28th, he posted an elaborate article in defence of Donald Trump's disgraced former National Security Advisor, Gen. Michael Flynn, but which was also a subtle introduction to the GCHQ spied on Trump for Obama fiction subsequently broadcast as fact by Larry C. Johnson, Andrew Napolitano and Sean Spicer (on behalf of Donald Trump).
Donald Trump might not have been the nuttiest US presidential candidate, but he is the first sitting US President openly to subscribe to what are popularly known as 'crackpot conspiracy theories.' Donald Trump has even appeared with (and endorsed) the USA's most-notorious professional 'crackpot conspiracy theorist,' Alex Jones.
For decades, Lyndon LaRouche (the instigator, and self-appointed sovereign leader, of the criminogenic cult known as the 'LaRouche Movement') has been the origin of numerous 'crackpot conspiracy theories.' Not surprisingly, LaRouche has also made regular appearances with Alex Jones.
Typically of a criminogenic cult, the elaborate paranoid fiction ritualised as fact which has controlled the thinking, and behaviour, of LaRouche's deluded core-adherents, has been peddled to them in a never-ending series of expensive, but essentially valueless, publications and recordings. In these, LaRouche has steadfastly pretended moral and intellectual authority, but his hidden criminal objective has always been fraudulent.
For many years, Lyndon LaRouche has pretended that he acted as a key-adviser to President Ronald Reagan. Thus, with an irony that is close to exquisite, the LaRouche Movement is a third source which has recently been broadcasting the fiction that GCHQ was used by President Obama to spy on Donald Trump.
However, a significant quantity of 'LaRouche Movement' propaganda has fixated on Britain's intelligence agencies in general, and on GCHQ in particular.
That said, this is only one small chapter in Lyndon LaRouche's overall, paranoid controlling-narrative.
Laughably, prior to his election, LaRouche was dead against Donald Trump, but now he's President, he's all for him.
All this begs the not unreasonable questions:
Where exactly did Larry Johnson, Phillip Giraldi get the idea that Barack Obama used British government agents at GCHQ to spy on Donald Trump?
In whose interests was it for Larry Johnson, Phillip Giraldi, Andrew Napolitano and Sean Spicer all to repeat this unsubstantiated fiction as fact publicly?
NB. The so-called 'LaRouche Movement' is neither original nor unique and, consequently, it cannot be fully-understood in isolation. Behind a typically mystifying labyrinth of corporate structures (designed to prevent and/or divert investigation and isolate its bosses from liability), the so-called 'LaRouche Movement' has exhibited the universal identifying characteristics of a cult.
Now if any Blog reader should still prefer to believe that Lyndon LaRouche is too elderly and absurd to pose a serious threat to democracy and the rule of law, currently, he is again fielding his own tame candidate, Jaques Cheminade, in the forthcoming French Presidential election. This means that M. Cheminade has somehow managed to obtain the required endorsement of 500 French Mayors.
That said, this is evidently just another thought-stopping publicity stunt rather than a genuine attempt to take power. In the last French presidential election (2012), Jaques Cheminade (who has never hidden his adherence to Lyndon LaRouche) scored just 89 000 votes (0.28%) nationally. With a few notable exceptions, the French media has tended to ignore him or dismiss him as a 'crackpot conspiracy theorist.'
