• Why Abraham Lincoln is Needed to Save Our Nation Today

    Why Abraham Lincoln is Needed to Save Our Nation Today

     July 23, 2021 ·   · 3 reactions

    Over the span of nine podcasts, Bob Ingraham and Michael Steger have explored the life and career of Abraham Lincoln. Particular emphasis has been placed on discussing the principles which guided Lincoln throughout his life. His devotion to the revolutionary precepts of the Declaration of Independence influenced his approach to economics, science, education, culture and almost every aspect of his personal life and political career. The critical importance of Lincoln, for today, goes far beyond merely refuting the lies and slanders of Critical Race Theory and the anti-American leftists. For it is in the life and the moral courage of Lincoln that we find the positive mission of the American Republic, the mission to which we must return if we are to save our nation.

    The whole series can be found at The American Patriot section of our website.

    The principles of the Declaration of Independence, principles which Abraham Lincoln dedicated his life to defending, posed a deadly threat to the British Empire and to oligarchical rule. The American Civil War was not simply an internal crisis, but an attempt by the British Empire to destroy the American Republic. Lincoln knew this, and he faced that crisis with a quality of moral courage which we all can learn from today.

    Lincoln told stories. He studied the parables of the New Testament, the fables of Aesop, and the poetry of Robert Burns;—and he developed a method of leading people to the truth by getting them to look anew at what they believed, using metaphor to open up doors in their mind.

    This week we look at how Lincoln organized the movement which saved our Republic. Lincoln insisted that only be returning to the principles which created the nation in 1776 could the crisis of the 1850s be overcome. In this story there lies a lesson for what we must do today, one which every American patriot should study.

    For Lincoln, no subject was more important than education. The uplifting of the minds and creative potentials of the citizenry was the goal, and all his economic policy initiatives were designed to achieve that goal. We examine Lincoln’s own development, the role of the Lyceum movement and Lincoln’s actions as President.

    In our third episode of the American History podcast, Mike talks with Dan Leach, a long-time organizer with LaRouche's movement and a poet himself. The two discuss the genius mind and impact of English poet and patriot Percy Bysshe Shelley. While Shelley died at the tragically young age of 29, in 1822, his career as a poet and political organizer was inspiringly prolific. So what does this have to do with American history? What does a poet know about politics? Find out this and more in Episode #3 of the LaRouchePAC American History Podcast.

    Welcome to our inaugural American History podcast! Our host Michael Steger sits down with author and historian Robert Ingraham and the two discuss everything from the Great Reset occupying the White House, to what is the American System? (and why it's not a formula), why the "Austrian School" is anti-American and didn't actually come from Austria at all, and how the construction of the Erie Canal was crucial in sabotaging efforts to bring other territories and states in as slave states. Enjoy!

    During his lifetime Benjamin Franklin became the most feared enemy of the British Empire. He fought. He conspired. He recruited. He displayed the same quality of courage as that which is needed today in our fight to rescue the American Republic.

    In this concluding installment of our series on Franklin, we ask two questions. First,—Why did Franklin do what he did? And second,—Why did he succeed?

    The fight to secure President Trump’s second term and to stop the emplacement of a Biden-Harris globalist-run satrapy into the U.S. Presidency is but an extension of the centuries-long battle between the British Empire and our Constitutional Republic. President Trump has been under attack by a foreign oligarchy, presently centered in the modern British Empire, with financial headquarters in the City of London and Wall Street, and with a political “sub-headquarters” in what has become known as the “swamp” or “deep state.”

    This is the story of how America became a Beacon of Hope and a Temple of Liberty for her citizens and for all of humanity, and the leadership role of Benjamin Franklin in bringing this about. This story, on the surface, deals with slavery, but that is not the real subject. The central question is, “What does it mean to be an American?” and what are the principles that define the nature of our Republic? Are those principles universal? Do they encompass each of us?

    In 2000, during a visit to New England as he campaigned for President, Lyndon LaRouche discussed the principles upon which this Republic was founded, that which forms this nation’s actual Manifest Destiny. Unfortunately, the only video of this speech we have been able to find has been edited by EIR magazine, but a link to a transcript of his full remarks is included below. LaRouche says that our mission is to ensure the General Welfare and to nurture the creativity of every American through unending economic progress.

    Human happiness and scientific progress are inseparable. The secret of America is that ours is a Republic based on Science. As Lyndon LaRouche once described this: “Since our national beginnings in such places as the Massachusetts Bay Colony’s mid-seventeenth-century development, until the close of the 1960s, ‘being an American’ signified an exuberant commitment to fostering and enjoying the benefits of scientific and technological progress.”

    As the result of the American Revolution and the genius of Alexander Hamilton, an entirely new form of economy was designed, meeting the Constitution's mandate to protect the general welfare of a free people. That unique economic design was further elaborated by Henry Carey, Abraham Lincoln's economist, presenting the ideas which resulted in the superior logistics of the North in the Civil War. This invention has been attacked, distorted, and rather thoroughly wiped from American history books, as the result of a concerted infiltration and mobilization by our British imperial foe. Here, Lyndon LaRouche, who substantially advanced these ideas, tells you the real story.

    Patriotism is the most powerful of strategic weapons. It springs forth from within the soul of the slumbering individual, to awaken a morality, a courage, which is sacred. It is the wellspring from which an aroused people can be mobilized in defense of the nation, her posterity and the principles which guide her destiny.

    One can still hear the catcalls of Hillary Clinton and her acolytes from 2016, snickering and mocking the supporters of Donald Trump as “deplorables,” an arrogance which made her the most hated woman in America. An intelligent person might think that those elitists would have learned from that disastrous blunder. But no. During the four years of the Trump presidency, the indignant demand of the elite class—that only they are qualified to rule—has only grown in its self-righteous ferocity. From New York City, Hollywood, Silicon Valley, San Francisco, Washington DC and those living in the gated communities and wealthy enclaves which surround many of our other major cities, the super-rich’s derision of mom & pop America is now more visceral than ever.

    As the month of December unfolds, we American patriots must steel ourselves for the fight required in the days ahead—and the actions that must be taken to secure victory. Here, as a lesson to guide us, we present Benjamin Franklin’s leadership in the days leading up to American Independence. What is written below is not just history. Consider our situation today. Are we to be ground into the dust by a modern-day British Empire? To live under the diktats of a near-hereditary global oligarchy, who actually govern from Davos, the City of London, Silicon Valley and various agencies of the United Nations,—who then dictate policy to national governments? Are we destined to be the slaves and serfs of a self-appointed global elite?

    As of this writing, the official outcome of the U.S. Presidential election, under the provisions of the U.S. Constitution, is still not decided. Millions of Americans are in the streets demanding that the vote fraud which occurred on Nov. 3 be overturned. The President’s legal team is fighting tenaciously in the courts to achieve that aim, and President Trump himself, despite the almost unanimous opposition of a treasonous news media, continues to defend Constitutional law.

    On November 19, 2020, at a press briefing by President Trump’s legal team, Sidney Powell declared that the current battle to overturn the massive vote fraud in the Presidential election “is the 1775 of our generation and beyond.” This statement is neither an exaggeration nor rhetoric. It accurately describes the revolutionary moment before us and the responsibilities which lie on each of us. As in the months prior to the Declaration of Independence, we are now confronted with a bestial imperial faction intent upon crushing all opposition to a globalist agenda of economic looting, dictatorial rule and cultural subversion.

  • A Vignette Concerning Benjamin Franklin

    A Vignette Concerning Benjamin Franklin

     November 17, 2020 ·  

    In a spirit of harmony with President Trump’s directive to call forth the teaching of actual American history in our schools, I offer here the first in a series of vignettes on the lessons that may be learned from the life of Benjamin Franklin. Franklin built and led a successful revolution, the greatest revolution in human history. In our fight today, if we wish to succeed—to save the American Republic, to create a happier, more productive future—we should learn from what he did. We need neither bravado nor defeatism; rather, we must improve our own capabilities and recruit others to the same historic mission. In doing so, we also remind ourselves as to the true purpose of the United States of America.
