The LaRouche PAC is loosely based on the LaRouche movement which is a political and cultural network promoting Lyndon LaRouche and his ideas. The LaRouche movement used to be considered a left-wing group. however, since the 1970’s it has moved to the right and is currently anti-climate change calling support for Green Fascism. It also promotes fear of world war 3 through videos and questionable news. The LaRouche movement is seen as a fringe political cult. In the summer of 2009, LaRouche’s followers came under criticism from both Democrats and Republicans for comparing President Barack Obama to Hitler. Media figures as politically diverse as Rush Limbaugh and Jon Stewart criticized the comparison.

Analysis / Bias
In review, the website primarily publishes news and opinions that favor the far-right such as this Empire Overreaches in Attack on President, Nation; Time to Outflank Them and this Regarding Today’s Bogus Impeachment: Let’s Call It Fascism, Because That’s What It Is. As of this date, they appear to be 100% Pro-Trump in their support, despite losing the election. In fact, during the 2020 Presidential election, they promoted election fraud from other sources, as well as original reporting REVERSE THE FRAUD: The Fight for a Legitimate Vote Count Continues. There wasn’t evidence of voter or election fraud presented to courts in the 2020 election as the Trump administration only won one case out of dozens.
Overall, we rate LaRouche PAC to be a strong right-wing biased conspiracy website based on the promotion of unproven or false claims. (D. Van Zandt 1/9/2017) Updated (01/20/2021)
