Keeping the bastards honest. None dare mention Glass-Steagall.




LaRouche's EIR Puts White House Against the Wall on Glass-Steagall Legislation

May 18, 2010 (LPAC)-- White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs received a one-two punch at the May 17 White House Briefing, over the White House's sabotage of the Glass-Steagall legislation now pending before the Senate. EIR founder Lyndon LaRouche is leading a national mobilization demanding the passage of the McCain-Cantwell amendment (calling for a return to FDR's Glass-Steagall) to the Dodd bill, which is now being debated by the Senate, as vital to the survival of the U.S. and international economy under current conditions of global breakdown crisis.

The interchange with Gibbs, which featured EIR's Bill Jones and the Dean of the White House press corps Helen Thomas, has already been picked up by numerous blogs.

Jones started off the exchange from the moment Gibbs entered the room. Not finding a seat in the "questions answered" section of the Press Room, Jones, from the side of the room, started in on Gibbs right when he got to the podium.

GIBBS: Good afternoon. Chuck, take us away.

CHUCK TODD (ABC): Okay, thank you --

EIR: (breaking in on Todd) Robert, why is the White House pressuring Democrats to back off from the Cantwell-McCain attempt to bring back Glass-Steagall?

GIBBS: I don't have anything on that.

EIR: Why is it opposed to Glass-Steagall?

TODD: (somewhat crestfallen) Robert --

EIR: Why is the White House opposed to it?

GIBBS: I'm sorry?

EIR: Is the White House opposed to reestablishing Glass-Steagall?

GIBBS: I don't have any information on the amendment. I'm happy to look at it.
