LAROUCHE AND TRUMP: A LOVE–HATE RELATIONSHIP
Complicate relations between two cult leaders in American politics: Lyndon LaRouche and Donald Trump.
WHEN LAROUCHE HATED D. TRUMP
LaRouche hated Donald Trump since he was a protégé of American lawyer Roy Cohn, best known for being Senator Joseph McCarthy's chief counsel during the Army–McCarthy hearings in 1954, for assisting with McCarthy's investigations of suspected communists, as a top political fixer, and for being Donald Trump's personal lawyer. LaRouche and his first associates were Marxist-Leninist Trotskyites.
Dennis King, author of "Lyndon Larouche and the New American Fascism" (1989) wrote:
The war on Cohn was triggered indirectly by an investigative series I wrote for the Manhattan weekly Our Town in 1979. These were the first articles to call attention to LaRouche's neo-Nazism. Former NCLC members say the series freaked out the national office staff. Especially affected were Jewish members, who had rationalized the turn to neo-Nazism via various self-deceptions. […] LaRouche filed a $20 million suit against Our Town, which retained Roy Cohn as its defense attorney. When Security discovered that Cohn had represented Our Town on several previous occasions, they blamed him for the articles. The NCLC issued a leaflet with a picture of Cohn and the caption: "Roy Cohn, the mobster who wants to see LaRouche dead."
From chapter Twenty-six of "Lyndon Larouche and the New American Fascism" "To Roy Cohn, with Love"
LaRouche started an anti-Semitic, homophobic smear campaign that earned him the reputation he had to be feared by his critics.
As a result the larouchies started a smear campaign based on anti-Semitism, blackmails and homophobia. LaRouche earned the reputation he had to be feared. […] On another level the anti-Cohn rhetoric reinforced the NCLC's anti-Semitism at the very moment when outsiders were harshly questioning it. One of the oldest ploys of anti-Semites is to focus on an individual Jew who is genuinely sinister, and to describe his crimes in a manner which suggests that criminality is an innate Jewish trait. The LaRouchians had frequently railed against Meyer Lansky, the financial wizard of organized crime, and long-deceased Jewish gangsters of the Prohibition era such as Bugsy Siegel of Murder, Inc. But such figures had always been too remote from the mainstream Jewish community to be convincing symbols. Cohn, however, was a power in New York politics, with ties to many prominent and respectable Jews. The LaRouchians thus could allege that he represented both a Jewish conspiracy and behavior patterns typical of rich Jews.
From chapter Twenty-six of "Lyndon Larouche and the New American Fascism" "To Roy Cohn, with Love"
But thirty years later, as late as 2015-16, the larouchies were still attacking a late Roy Cohn or a Donald Trump!

"We begin with the case of Donald Trump. He is, as Lyndon LaRouche points out, a product of J. Edgar Hoover’s New York circles, a coterie which included mobbed-up businessmen like Lewis Rosenstiel, along with Cardinal Spellman of the New York archdiocese, and various Wall Street establishment and media figures, all presided over by Hoover’s main New York man, the satanic Roy M. Cohn. Cohn was Trump’s lawyer and best friend throughout most of Trump’s formative years—his mentor, according to Trump. […] Trump’s campaign manager, until his recent “resignation,” was Roger Stone, described by Trump as a longtime close friend and associate. Stone is a long-standing Republican Party dirty-tricks operative who cut his teeth with Richard Nixon’s CREEP. According to Stone, he has Richard Nixon’s picture tattooed on his back. […] Everything I have written here about Trump is readily and publicly available. Yet, millions of Americans say they are seriously considering this man for the presidency; all the so-called Republican candidates are silent about this perverse story,—a silence which itself should disqualify them all from the Presidency."

A musical offering (& warning) to our fellow Americans: don't be a chump for Trump!
If you're voting for Trump, you're a chump, chump, chump!
Because Wall Street's behind is Donald Trump,
They are crashing the country into a dump,
Don't you BE another Chump for Trump!
Bankers created Hitler and they made Trump,
Look at dope-pusher Soros at the pump,
Lending hundreds of millions unto that lump,
Don't you BE, another Chump for Trump!
Donald's dad and attorneys are mob-connected,
Trump's no intellectual;
And his mentor Roy Cohn worked with F.B.I.
To blackmail homosexuals.
When a Nazi accomplice like Soros and the
Mafia can all agree,
Then supporting the Donald is proof you are
A fool who needs psychiatry!
...THEN LAROUCHE LOVED D. TRUMP!
AFTER TRUMP'S PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION VICTORY NOVEMBER 8, 2016 LAROUCHE FELL IN LOVE WITH HIM BUT QUICKLY FLEW TO EUROPE WHERE HE DIED 3 YEARS LATER...
LaRouche said Trump's victory is nothing less than a "Victory For the Universe"!

HELGA ZEPP-LAROUCHE: "This collapse of globalization, I will talk about in a little while, but it is basically the unifying element between the Brexit, the Trump vote, and now the “No” to the referendum in Italy. Naturally, if you have a system of government where too many people are left behind, where the gap between rich and poor becomes unbearably wide, then eventually such revolts occur. So this is one dynamic, which is obviously affecting the trans-Atlantic sector. […] Now, what Trump did, which I think is the most important—the moment he got elected he got on the phone and he talked to Russian President Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping, and all sides afterwards confirmed that the intention was to normalize and improve the relationship between the United States and Russia, and the United States and China. […] So what we are looking at is not just economic development, but this is the basis of a peace order for the 21st century: Because if you have common development for everybody, then you also tend to eliminate the causes for war.”

LaRouche: "I watched this thing play out, and this thing was such that it was absolutely international. It was not national, it was international in its entire character. What we're dealing with exists on a global basis. Its area is nothing less than global. […] Putin is a key figure. The entire space of Asia is something that is acting together, not as a collection, not as group by group, and not as state by state, but together. "

HELGA ZEPP-LAROUCHE: "This anti-globalization revolt was obviously continued with the election of President Donald Trump in the United States; it was continued with the “no” to the Italian referendum organized by Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, to change the Constitution. And what’s common to all of these developments, Brexit, Trump, the “no” to the referendum in Italy, is they are caused by a fundamental feeling of injustice of ever-larger parts of the population which were victims of that system, which increasingly made the rich richer, made more billionaires richer, but destroyed increasingly the middle range of society, and made the poor poorer. It is my deepest conviction that that revolt will continue until the causes of this injustice are removed, and it will continue—it will hold the measuring rod to President Trump, whether he will fulfill his election promises; and if he does not do that, I believe the same people would turn against Trump as they turned against Hillary."
ROGER STONE AS MATCHMAKER?
Stone: “I have a back channel to Trump.”
While publicly singing "Don't be a chump for Trump!!" or attacking Trump in their newspapers, the LaRouche leadership was ordered to find an access to Trump via their good old friend Roger Stone... who happens to be a good friend of Alex Jones of infowars where LaRouche was often invited since 2011.
Donald Trump also praised Stone during an appearance, December 2, 2015 on Alex Jones' radio show that was orchestrated by Stone. "Roger's a good guy," Trump said. "He's been so loyal and so wonderful." From The Alex Jones Channel. "Alex Jones & Donald Trump Bombshell Full Interview" – via YouTube .
Who is Roger Stone? In 1976–80, Stone worked on Ronald Reagan’s two presidential campaigns. He worked closely with the Reagan adviser Roy Cohn, who introduced Stone to his friend and protégé Donald Trump in 1980, then a private businessman. At Stone’s urging, Trump, who was in his 30s, became a major donor to Reagan’s second presidential campaign. The two men hit it off—the start of a tumultuous relationship that spanned both business and politics over the next three decades. Source: A Brief History of Roger Stone LaRouche had then connections to the Reagan administration. In a 1985 Washington Post story, Norman Bailey, a Reagan National Security Council staffer, recounted meeting with LaRouche organization members numerous times—and with LaRouche himself three times. Bailey described LaRouche’s group as “one of the best private intelligence services in the world.”
"It’s unclear what exactly triggered Stone’s recent association with LaRouche. (Stone refused a request for comment.) But Houston-based attorney Douglas Caddy claims that Harley Schlanger, a key LaRouche associate, asked for an introduction to Stone in January 2016, knowing the two were acquainted.

"LaRouche’s connections with Russia go back to the 1970s and 1980s,” says British journalist Matthew Sweet, whose 2018 book "Operation Chaos", chronicled Vietnam deserters who joined LaRouche’s group. “There was a time when his organization had excellent relationships with senior Russian intelligence officers,” Sweet says.
When still alive, LaRouche was as Trump is a fervent supporter of Putin, so are larouchites today. They reject the “Mueller report” as fake, and blame the British or Ukrainians for interfering in the 2016 U.S. presidential election against Trump!
This “Mueller report” was about investigating into Russian Interference in the 2016 United States presidential election, and into allegations of conspiracy or coordination between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russia. A redacted version of the 448-page report was publicly released by the Department of Justice (DOJ) on April 18, 2019.
Although LaRouche was not mentioned in this report, Mueller is well aware of him. Indeed Robert S. Mueller III succeeded William Weld as the acting U.S. Attorney and prosecutor against LaRouche in 1986. As a result, in October that year; authorities from five federal agencies (300 federal and state agents) raided in Leesburg, Va. his national headquarters offices after a Boston grand jury indicted 10 of his followers / associates and 5 of his organizations on charges of credit card fraud and conspiracy. The only person under investigation in the “Mueller report” who can be related to LaRouche was Roger Stone. Three years later in 1989, LaRouche was incarcerated to 15 years in prison and was released 5 years later on parole in 1994.
Having therefore lost his U.S. government connections which LaRouche and his adepts enjoyed in the 1980s, the larouchites focused to expand their ties with political elites in other countries — above all Russia or China. In recent years, LaRouche and his adepts have indeed increasingly emphasized the importance of Russia on the world stage, and have largely aligned themselves with President Vladimir Putin’s international policies, for example on the conflicts in Syria and Ukraine.
The dissolution of the Soviet Union occurred in December 1991. While still in jail, LaRouche's "Schiller Institute" sponsored its first-ever conference in Moscow, Russia, on October 30-31 1992 to announce the release of a Russian-language edition of LaRouche's textbook on physical economy, “So You Wish To Learn All About Economics?” The next year, the widely read daily Nezavisimaya Gazeta printed a full-page article on how LaRouche had achieved his status as an "American political prisoner" by his claimed authorship of Reagan's “Strategic Defense Initiative!” (S.D.I.) policy. More than a dozen Russian elected officials and other political activists signed appeals for LaRouche to be freed from prison. LaRouche was released on parole in January 1994 and travelled for the first time to Moscow in April that year. The following year during his second trip to Moscow he was invited to speak at the Russian State Duma and has been regularly invited on Putin's RT national television channel since 2008. LaRouche was supported by important Russian nationalists. See Sergey Glazyev and the American fascist cult from the Anton Shekhovtsov blog.
