Class #5: A Renaissance of the American Family
We cannot count what does not exist yet. Yet it is that which is ’coming into being‘ that is more fundamental. The family is, at its heart, that very ‘coming into being.’ The family is the most fundamental human unit, that precedes all else. The mission of America requires—now—a rebirth of the American family: with homes in vital neighborhoods alive with children's laughter.
Class #3: It Ain't Supply Chains, It's What We Don't Produce!
The globalized system which prioritizes money over physical production is now in its inevitable collapse phase. Today's shortages and higher prices are not going to go away under the current system. Lyndon LaRouche stressed that each nation should strive to have a "full set" economy. That involves modern infrastructure, advanced energy sources, machine tools, an educated labor force—the things needed for a functioning, modern agro-industrial nation.
Machine Tools—Key to Rebuilding U.S. Manufacturing
If the U.S. is going to revitalize its manufacturing it must start with a revival of the machine tool sector. This video explains what are machine tools and why they are crucial to re-Americanizing the U.S. economy.
LPAC Short: Real infrastructure—Not Biden's B.S. Would Have Made Hurricane Ida Manageable
The damage done by Hurricane Ida is not due to climate change. Storms of that magnitude have occurred long before the industrial age. The damage was due to a lack of investment in infrastructure that could have been built with modern technology, none of which is in Biden's infrastructure.
LPAC Shorts: The World Runs on Steel, Coal and Oil
No matter how you cut it, a modern economy depends on steel, coal and oil. The U.S. has only 9 functioning integrated steel plants. If the U.S. is going to re-industrialize and grow, steel is a basic component. In this edition of LPAC Shorts, Brian Lantz lays out some of the hard facts about steel.
LPAC Shorts: How to Rebuild American Supply Chains
The coronavirus pandemic exposed the glaring vulnerability of America's supply chains. Those vulnerabilities were not caused by the virus but by the stupidity of Wall St.'s and London's globalization drive. If America wants to rebuild its supply chains it must reject globalization and adopt a long-term perspective for reviving U.S. production.
A Production Supply Chain Rebuild: Saving the Crumbling US Economy
Why are US supply chains disrupted, prices rising, inventories falling and the US back-order index increasing? Global trade is up only 2.7% worldwide, according to the giant container shipping company Maersk. However, in the US there is a ‘log-jam,’ seen in unplanned empty shelves in retail stores, shortages of foodstuffs, medical supply shortages, labor shortages, back ordered car parts, and fields full of unfinished automobiles and trucks lacking their computer chips. The list goes on.
LPAC Shorts: An Energy Policy for the Future
The pessimists are always wrong. Instead of the zero-growth Green New Deal, LaRouchePAC outlines an energy policy for the future based on expanded nuclear, fossil fuel and fusion that will enable America to triple its manufacturing and expand its economy.
LPAC Shorts: Infrastructure Based on the Future
by Bruce Director and Brian Lantz Unlike the farcical so-called infrastructure package being bungled by Biden and both parties in Congress, real infrastructure, as understood by LaRouche, is rooted in the future. The U.S. has many experiences with such an approach, most notably the way the U.S. Space program sparked a reorganization of U.S. economy. That's real infrastructure.
The Western Drought is a National Crisis Demanding a National Solution
by Michael Carr & Brian Lantz Does your neighbor know? Our Western United States is being hit by the most severe drought in over 1200 years, according to climatologists, far surpassing the extreme drought of 2015. Seven states in the West are entirely in drought this week after the US Drought Monitor announced a deterioration of conditions in Montana, which joins California, Nevada, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and North Dakota on the list. That is not to mention whole sections of other western states where extreme drought conditions prevail. Wells are running dry. California and Oregon are suffering from drought fed fires. Electricity is at risk as the hydroelectric dams which produce it are running on empty, particularly in the Colorado River Basin and in California.
LPAC Shorts: How the US will Become an Industrial Superpower Again
The Uniparty & “Experts” say it can’t be done, but we’ll prove them wrong in this series of short interviews of economist Brian Lantz by LaRouche PAC’s Bruce Director.
The Housing Crisis - Build Homes for Our Families!
We can and must solve the crisis in housing for all our young families and future families.
We must start with people, the American people. Just as Lyndon LaRouche did in his precedent-setting Homeowners & Bank Protection Act of 2007 (HBPA). Widely endorsed, including by nine state legislatures and over 200 city councils, the HBPA would have nipped the 2007-2008 financial crash in the bud.
Texas Grid Still in Shambles as Summer Heat Waves Hit! ERCOT Says, “Conserve!”
Special update from Kesha and Brian in Texas on Energy failures in Texas just in time for Summer, only 4 months after a massive winter freeze devastated the state and left millions without power for days. The Energy Reliability Council of Texas, ERCOT has now called on Texan to conserve energy this week after a number of power plants “unexpectedly ” went off line. As of Monday approximately 12000MW of generation were off line. Watch this very important update to find out what’s really going on and what should be done about it.
Class #4— Why Do We Have To Go To Mars?
President Trump and statesman & economist Lyndon LaRouche have placed a challenge before all of us. Just as President Kennedy mobilized the Apollo Moonshot, “to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills.”
What is the "Machine Tool Principle?"
Where does profit come from? Did you "invest right" in your mutual fund or bitcoin or did you get lucky at the casino? Or, have you created something which advances society's ability to increase its potential relative population density? That is what Lyndon LaRouche called "the machine tool principle."
“...The point is, that for any national economy taken as a unified whole, scientific and classical-artistic progress, combined, are the only source of sustainable profit, nothing else. The machine-tool sector illustrates the role of science in this. For the imperiled economy of the United States, and, of many other nations, today, the lesson told is a desperately urgent one, even if it appears to address only technological progress as such..."
— Machine-tool design: the brains of profit, Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. Dec. 7, 1996
For more on the machine tool principle, see LaRouche's 1997 article, Return to the Machine Tool Principle.
Monetary Policy Won't Stop Inflation, Physical Growth Will
As inflation surges—in basic commodities, used cars, home prices, etc., the response coming from inside the Beltway is doomed to fail. Monetarist tools, whether it be government spending or adjusting money supply and interest rates, miss the twin elephants in the room: an out-of-control speculative bubble, reignited since the 2008 crash, and the collapse of real physical production, fueled by the pandemic shutdowns and green policies.
Defeat Biden's Hyperinflation—Class#1: What is an economic 'platform'?
Mussolini Joe Biden is threatening to unleash a hyperinflationary death spiral for the U.S. economy with his "jobs plan" and other initiatives. However, the solution to inflation is not to merely stop spending, we have to create actual, physical growth. The problem is, most Americans (let alone "trained" economists) don't understand the fundamentals of physical economy. Here is the first in a new LaRouchePAC class series, focusing on the fundamentals of physical economy, but from the most advanced sense. Pay close attention, the future of your nation depends on this.
Defeat Biden's "Jobs" Boondoggle with a Space Platform
What's missing in the "infrastructure" debate on all sides is one simple fact: we are living in a doomed financial system, dominated by the policies of the central banks, Wall Street and the City of London. Every policy put forward by JoeBama is in service to a corporatist policy aimed at saving the financial parasite, while keeping the host barely alive.
As Lincoln Fought to Save the Union, State Governments Act to Save Our Nation
Making the decision to fight for progress—and refusing national suicide—state officials, agencies, and legislatures across the heartland of the US are acting to stop the “Great Reset,” and the Avatar known as Biden, and that Avatar’s Collective now soiling the White House. State governments with their substantial finance clout are rising to fight and defeat the green fascist—“carbon-conscious”—Wall Street and City of London predators who direct the Avatar and his Biden Collective.
Why the Oligarchy Hates the Atom: Nuclear Energy and Science
We are again on Mars. As the pandemic has also made clear, science, and in particular, the principles of physical economy, are the critical activity. The so-called debate over “reshoring” of U.S. manufacturing is already over. We must produce! All of America knows we must secure our supply chains, so that we again can become the leading industrial nation, and a leading exporter to the world. So, too, we will innovate, building a modern, optimistic, outward-looking and exciting nation once again.
The Peaceful Atom: The Awesome Power of Nuclear Energy
The sun and the wind—certain gifts of God and nature—have been “weaponized” as solar and wind “farms” and turned against humanity, God’s highest creation on earth. The loaded term, “renewables,” is used to the same end. In this article we concentrate on the importance of nuclear energy, not on the modern-day solar and wind energy hoax. However, solar and wind energy, financed by the highest levels of the oligarchy’s financial houses and banks, is a weapon of choice to destroy sane, reasonable modes of energy production and collapse the power grids of the advanced sector nations. The United States, as the leading republic and continental in scope, is the target in particular.
Towards a Producers’ Alliance, How To Rebuild the U.S. Economy
This is adapted from a live presentation, given on Feb. 11, 2021, available here. Just to frame briefly what I am going to be discussing, I will begin with a short quote from Abraham Lincoln: “All creation is a mine and every man a miner.”
We’re going to be discussing the field of physical economy. Physical economy dates back to Gottfried Leibniz, but really has roots that go back to the Renaissance. Today, it is a principle that needs to be rediscovered. In the last 50 to 70 years, there have been people who have understood its conceptions, people like Susan Kokinda’s friend Bill Knudsen, associated with Ford and GM and the wartime mobilization; Henry Kaiser and the aluminum industry; Jesse Jones and the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. These were industrialists who collaborated with President Franklin Roosevelt in the war mobilization and beyond. And I think that is a useful starting point: we have to rediscover what they understood, but also take it to another level, which is where Lyndon LaRouche took it, in depth.
Trump Takes on Wall Street Journal—Now Take on Wall Street Economics
President Trump’s salvo against the Wall Street Journal for their support of globalist policies and for their “sell out of our great American workers,” now puts the question of Wall Street’s economics on the table. Susan Kokinda discusses the difference between monetarism and Lyndon LaRouche’s conception of a credit system. Brian Lantz elaborates on his article: “Build on the Trump Presidency, COVID Did Not Shut Down the Real Economy.”
Build on the Trump Presidency: COVID Did Not Shut Down the Real Economy
(Thanks to Bill Roberts and Paul Glumaz for their contributions to this report.)
We are not on our knees, thanks to four years of the Trump Presidency.
For all of 2020, during COVID-19, total increases in non-agricultural unemployment in the heartland states averaged around 4.5% overall, while on the west and east coasts, the numbers were roughly half again as high, or in some cases twice as high (New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts), over the course of January through November 2020.
The Household and the Physical Economy: Lyndon LaRouche’s Heuristic Bar Diagram of the Physical Economy
Lyndon LaRouche organizing students in New York City in 1973.
This is an accompanying piece for: Covid Did Not Shut Down the Economy
As Lyndon LaRouche stated,
“The formalities of the science of physical economy may be described as centered upon refining and scaling the following set of inequalities.
Don't Fear Climate Change, Master the Laws of the Universe!
What happened in Texas? Yes, there were the frozen windmills and snowed over solar panels. And the global warming cultists are re-emerging, with Biden's climate envoy, John Kerry, telling you "we have nine years left" to make amends to the climate gods for our carbon sins.
But, how many understand that deregulation was just as culpable for the crisis? Texas electricity was deregulated in 1999, and the scheme was to break up the utility companies by utilizing "market efficiencies" to drive down costs and increase profits. This was the Enron model, and it was supported by Republicans and Democrats at the time—and fought against by Lyndon LaRouche and his movement.
Special Report from Texas on Historic Arctic Blast & Threat of Rolling Blackouts
Special update from Brian and Kesha in Texas on this week's historic Arctic Blast and what we should have learned before in the need to build up our national energy grid, end deregulation policies, and don't be a sucker for the windmills and the genocidal green plan.
Post-Fake Impeachment: How We Must Rebuild the US Economy
The ferocity of the current attack on Donald Trump and the Trump movement is driven by the oligarchy’s fear that a “sleeping giant” of political potency and technological optimism has been awakened in the last four years. Brian Lantz addresses how LaRouche's concepts of economics and education will foster those very dangerous qualities of optimism and potency, and will lay the basis for rescuing the nation.
The Avatar President Arrives: Cookies for Human Props; Pure Hell for the Economy
Less than a week into his occupation of the White House, the Avatar President, Joe Biden, has, not surprisingly, launched a head-on assault against the U.S. economy, at the behest of his imperial masters. But unlike during previous, similar wholesale looting attacks and outright robbery of the population, President Trump awakened the U.S. citizenry to their power, and they will not go back to tolerating a less than human condition.
Families and Making America Great
How can we restore the promise of “American Exceptionalism” as a continuing, profoundly positive factor in world history? First, you must qualify yourself as a leader. Traditionally, policymaking was a matter of discerning the universal physical and related laws that govern the universe in which we live, with a devotion to the future, and a shared sense of purpose that binds our sovereign republic, as a singular creation of mankind. The General Welfare and Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness are then part and parcel of what it is to be preciously, essentially human.
Make Space Great Again! LaRouchePAC Midwest Meeting
LPAC Midwest leader Susan Kokinda hosts Kesha Rogers and Brian Lantz for this week's Midwest activist meeting. Here are their opening remarks.
Trump Lays Groundwork for Nuclear Power Advance
As a result of the groundwork laid by the first Trump Administration, Idaho National Laboratory (INL) will soon be the site of the first American small modular nuclear reactor module, developed by NuScale Power, as the Joint Use Modular Plant (JUMP). This first module will be dedicated to nuclear research. In October, after NuScale’s small modular reactor (SMR) was the first to receive design approval from the Nuclear Energy Regulatory Commission earlier this year, the Trump Administration’s Department of Energy authorized a $1.4 billion grant to help defray costs for a group of small utilities that will be first in line to buy power from a scaled up, commercial NuScale power plant.
We Cannot Live on Air Alone! Reanimating America—And Our REAL Economy
Is there a popular movement for the re-industrialization of the United States? If we look to the millions of “deplorables” now in the streets demanding that the November 3 vote fraud be overturned, and to the 74 million—perhaps 84 million—Americans who voted on November 3 to re-elect President Donald Trump, the answer is a resounding “Yes!”
A Victory for President Trump’s Use of American System Methods, More Than 90% Effective COVID Vaccine by December
Donald Trump is still President of the United States. Yesterday, Friday, in the White House Rose Garden he proved it again, presenting to the American people the ongoing success of our nation’s effort to crush the pandemic. Watch the press conference, or read the remarks.
This article is a summary of the full press conference which every American should view and read about because there is a full scale information war underway to debunk its significance and to stigmatize and disorient those for whom this vaccine will prove life-saving.
Artemis and the True Science of Human Advancement
President Trump's Project Artemis is not only a return to the Moon by 2024, but the establishment of a permanently manned base on the Moon by 2028—providing key steps towards Lyndon LaRouche's outline for a Moon-Mars colonization program. This is the greatest endeavor of exploration in human history, and represents an evolutionary leap in mankind's existence in the Universe, similar to the first emergence of life onto land from the primordial oceans 430 million years ago.
This project is critical to the restoration of a pro-growth, industrial and manufacturing-based United States economy, and to a new global system based not on monetary globalization, but based on the industrial development of all nations and people.
Both the Artemis project and the unique perspective of space colonization defined by Lyndon LaRouche were discussed in depth during a special August 15, 2020 video seminar with Michael Steger, Kesha Rogers, Brian Lantz, and Ben Deniston.
