State Sen. Perry Clark confirms that he penned letter asking Obama to resign, praises Lyndon LaRouche

Democratic State Sen. Perry Clark of Louisville confirmed to LEO Weekly today that he penned a letter calling for President Barack Obama to resign from office.

Clark contends in the letter that the recently signed agreement to lift the debt ceiling and create a 12-member “Super Congress” to execute the policy violates the Constitution. (see below)

Parts of the letter were first posted on the website of notorious conspiracy theorist and perennial presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche on Monday.

Clark tells LEO Weekly that the letter speaks for itself.

“What he’s doing with the Super Congress is unconstitutional. Obama is defending the international bankers. What we need to do is bring back Glass-Steagall,” he said. “But I don’t think (Obama) has the balls to stand up to them.”

The Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 was designed to reign in speculation by the banking industry. In 1999, it was repealed by Congress, allowing the merger of investment banks and commercial banks. Many (including Elizabeth Warren) have blamed this repeal for the financial collapse of 2008, and congressmen ranging from John McCain to Bernie Sanders have advocated bringing Glass-Steagall back to prevent such a collapse from happening again.

But Clark goes further in his letter, comparing the debt ceiling agreement to the 1933 German Reichstag Enabling Laws “that ceded all legislative power to the murderous Hitler government.”

Clark then favorably name drops Lyndon LaRouche, who makes even people like talk radio host Alex Jones look like a mainstream figure.

“I am joining with American statesman Lyndon LaRouche in calling for the President to step down or face impeachment.”

LaRouche, notorious for 40 years worth of conspiracy theories – such as 9/11 being an inside job and the Soviet Union creating the AIDS virus and … well, too many to really list here – has also called for Obama to resign, saying the president is planning a dictatorial coup by creating a “new 9/11-style Reichstag fire.”

He also is quite fond of comparing Obama to Hitler. His supporters are well known for bringing signs to events that have a Hitler mustache on Obama, with official “LaRouche PAC” labels on them.

But Clark does not shy away from his praise of LaRouche, whom he endorsed for president in 2004.

“LaRouche is absolutely right, he has a track record of being right for many, many years,” Clark said.

“He’s been shut down by the mainstream because he’s too much of a threat to the international financiers, he’s challenging the system too much, and they’re afraid of him.”

State Senate Democratic leadership has not yet returned a call asking for comment, but Clark says he is not concerned about any criticism they might have of the letter.

“Sure, that’s fine. It wouldn’t be the first time. I’m here to serve the people, not my party.”

    ‘ jsonka’, I would ask that you take a look at : THE WEBSITE OF BOB CHAPMAN, THE INTERNATIONAL FORECASTER,
    HAS SEVERAL LPAC LINKS AND ALSO REPRODUCES THE TRANSLATLANTIC
    CALL TO ACTION. Chapman denounces the Super Congress as “Obama’s
    version of Adolph Hitler’s `Enabling Act of 1933…. The latest
    version will be more on the corporatist fascist model. This is
    the first step toward a fascist dictatorship…. They wanted to
    destroy America’s constituitonal form of government…. A
    reinstitution of the Glass-Steagall Act is needed as well. We
    fought hard against it’s [repeal] in the late 1990s, but Wall
    Street and the bankers aranged its demise. For those who do not
    know two bills exist in the House, HR2451 and 1489. They
    presently have 35 co-sponors. A new bill would end the incestous
    relationsip between banking and brokerage that had to be ended in
    the early 1930s.”

    Perry Clark has shown courage in calling for obama to resign. obama has pissed on the constitution since day 1. The bailouts are unconstitutional (America was founded on a credit system not a monetary system). Violation of the war powers act. obamas nazi health care reform and the super congress. All unconstitutional. obamas hate of glass steagall means he hates every human on this planet. obama is hitler.

    obama is just a puppet of the british empire. obama has continued the bush bailout policy. This bailout policy will kill the human race unless we stop obama immediately by kicking him out via threat of impeachment, impeachment or the 25th amendment section 4. Einstein defined crazy as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” QE3?????

    infact i challenge anyone to point out 1 thing obama has done for the general welfare of the people. Or one thing that he has done that is constitutional. Perry Clark should be praised for his courage and we should be pressure more senators and congress to join in the call for obamas removal and RESTORE GLASS STEAGALL immediately

    By the way FatLip your writing is so loaded. Why do you load your writing in defense of that nasty creature obama when he has torn the constitution every chance he gets.

    Get with it fat lip we are in a revolution your writing is a wet blanket

    Why on earth would you use Wikipedia as a source of information on LaRouche?

    Carl, it took you well over 48 hours to come here and defend the American statesman and prophet, Lyndon LaRouche.

    It almost makes me think that you’re in on the Hitler plot with Obama. How can we trust you, really?

    OK, so let’s say this joint committee (not the first one, by far) is “unconstitutional”. Let’s also pretend that there’s never been any Congressional punting of difficult issues to bodies never itemized in the Constitution.

    So, why would anyone who is coherent only target President Obama for a request of resignation? Where’s the request for Sen. Mitch McConnell, who obviously took part of the creation of this joint committee in the Senate?

    I agree with many of the complaints that Perry makes, but I also have to say there’s a confusion therein that somehow suggests we don’t have to pay our nation’s debts. That’s true whether we rein in the banks or not.

    Also, where and when did Obama get the magical power of reinstating Glass-Steagall all by himself?

    Some individuals obviously need to brush up on their civics education.

    everyone who voted for the super congress is a traitor to the United States. Steve Magruder the United States has legitimate debt that it must pay off, but the united states also has bogus debt that it should simply cancel. Those debts that should be cancelled are the gambling debts of wall street and london banks. End speculation in the United States by Restoring Glass Steagall

    the intention of the brutish monarchy is to reduce the human population to less than 1 billion people in short order. This is also the intention of the green movement. Environmentalism has destroyed the human race and ended a true revolution The industrial revolution. We are in trouble and there is only one solution kick obama to the curb, Restore Glass Steagall, and restore a system of soverign credit between nations based on a fixed exchange rate.build NAWAPA and rebuild the manned space exploration with the goal of creating a moon base and mars base. double down on 4th gen nuclear fission, nuclear fusion and anti matter.

    This is the Prometheus Principle which we must get back too

    after the United States defeated the british empire in the american revolutionary war, the United States was bankrupt because of its war debt to other nations.These debts had to be paid because they were legitimate debts that occured fighting british imperialism. It was Alexander Hamiltion who basically said there is only one thing you can do create a credit system. so in 1789 the federal constituion was created based on a soverign credit system not a monetary system. When the constitution became law in 1789 and the United States was operating under a soverign credit system that was the real victory for the United States against the british empire.

    The United States is the Greatest Republic the world has ever seen and its because it was founded on a soverign credit system based on physical production. not a monitary system. People from europe came across the oceans to get away from monetary systems. case in point the massachusetts bay colony and its pine tree shilling charter
