While purportedly fighting for democracy and human rights in Venezuela and other countries, the US neglects abuses elsewhere, including at home.

What is also interesting is that even over long decades, you will find the same individuals involved in this home-grown, perverse American persecution.

One such person is Robert Mueller.

In the 1980s, as Robert Mueller was head of the "Get LaRouche" Task Force that brought the heavy hand of the American State down upon one of its visionary dissidents, the late Lyndon LaRouche.

Michael Billington was one of the Larouche Movement's leading activists, and experienced the full brunt of these long coordinated actions first hand.

In this excerpt of our recent conversation, Billington speaks of how Robert Mueller started to prosecute the LaRouche movement after Ronald Reagan adopted LaRouche's Strategic Defence Initiative.  
Interestingly, it was Roger Stone (the same one Mueller recently had arrested using a similar overwrought display of armed State force) who brought LaRouche's ideas to President Ronald Reagan's attention. These were designed to facilitate cooperation between the USA and the USSR at the time, similar to Trump's stated goals of wanting to work together with Russia and China.

Billington recounts the dramatic events when law enforcement and military forces surrounded the LaRouche headquarters in what appears to have been a preparation for a something like a deadly Waco, Texas event, which actually occurred in just a few years later.

Billington eventually received the harshest and longest sentence from the Mueller prosecution - 77 years -in what was clearly an abuse of process and wrongful prosecution.

Last week, Lyndon LaRouche passed away at the age of 96, just a few weeks after the Larouche Movement launched a petition to exonerate him and the others from these false charges.

This is very relevant for what is occurring today in the United States. I urge you to learn more and sign the petition.
