Executive Intelligence Review

Full article: Executive Intelligence Review

Lydon LaRouche founded Executive Intelligence Review (EIR), which is still a useful source of reference due to its addressing third rail topics, such as the Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism.

Schiller Institute

The Schiller Institute is a German based political and economic think tank founded by his wife Helga Zepp-LaRouche, with members in 50 countries. It is among the principal organizations of the LaRouche movement. The institute's stated aim is to apply the ideas of the poet and philosopher Friedrich Schiller to what it calls the "contemporary world crisis." Their constitution (adopted in 1984), is defined in opposition to international financial institutions and other supranational bodies for causing a state of tyranny in the world, especially amongst developing nations.[1]

Criticism

Wikipedia

Wikipedia does not hold back when compiling a biography, which might indicate he broached taboo subjects, with articles like "George Bush: Crack Kingpin of the 1980s".[2]

It states he "was an American political activist, convicted fraudster, cult leader and founder of the LaRouche movement," which "engaged in conspiratorial beliefs and violent and/or illegal activities" and "created disinformation" Later in the 1980s, criminal investigations led to convictions of several LaRouche movement members, including LaRouche himself."

Another taboo subject was the "October Surprise" allegation, namely that in October 1980 Ronald Reagan's campaign staff conspired with the Iranian government during the Iran hostage crisis to delay the release of 52 American hostages held in Iran, with the aim of helping Reagan win the 1980 United States presidential election against Jimmy Carter. The Iranians had agreed to this, according to the theory, in exchange for future weapons sales from the Reagan administration.

The analysis was later confirmed by former Iranian President Abolhassan Banisadr and other sources.[3]
