LaRouche Was Right About HSBC!

July 17, 2012 (LPAC)–In 1978, Lyndon LaRouche and his
associates launched a national campaign to block the Hongkong and
Shanghai Bank (HongShang, now known as HSBC) from taking over the
Marine Midland Bank of Buffalo, NY. The HongShang was then, and
remains, the flagship bank of the British Empire’s global drug
trade. As part of that campaign, we produced the book {Dope,
Inc.}, which exposed the British Empire’s historic control over
the global opium trade and the way in which large sections of the
empire’s global banking apparatus were created specifically to
launder the proceeds of the dope trade and hide the flow of that
money back into to the imperial coffers. Here we present a small
sample of our 34-year battle to defend the U.S. and the world
against the Brutish Empire’s Dope, Inc. apparatus, and its
“central bank,” HSBC.
* {In 1978}, we issued the first edition of {Dope, Inc.,
Britain’s Opium War Against the U.S.}, a groundbreaking book
which detailed how the British Empire runs the global drug trade
through a combination of chivalric and Masonic orders, trading
companies, and banks, and dubbed this drug cartel Dope, Inc. We
also identified the key role of the British territory of Hong
Kong and its dominant bank, the HongShang, in the dope trade. The
HongShang Bank, we noted, was “created in 1864 to finance the
drug trade” and quickly became “the financial hydra unifying the
production, transportation, and distribution of Asia’s opium.”
* {In 1979}, our {EIR} magazine defended the efforts of U.S.
patriots to block HongShang’s purchase of Marine Midland bank,
identifying the move as a “projected City of London takeover of
direct control of the world monetary system.”
* {In 1985}, {EIR} reported that the worldwide drug traffic
had doubled in dollar terms since 1978, and previewed the
upcoming updated edition of {Dope, Inc.} Among the new
revelations was the role of Henry Kissinger’s Kissinger
Associates as a board of directors of sorts of Dope, Inc., due to
its banking and political connections.
* We issued updated versions of {Dope, Inc.} in {1986} and
{1992}, adding new information and showing how the warnings we
had issued were coming to pass. The dope trade had become a major
problem for society, and our banking system had become hooked on
the dope money.
* {In 1999}, {EIR} reported on the visit by New York Stock
Exchange Chairman Richard Grasso to Colombia, where he met with
the leader of the narco-terrorist FARC, Raul Reyes. Reyes, Grasso
declared, is “a man Wall Street can do business with.” This was
proof that Wall Street was not only hooked on dope money, but
shamelessly seeking it.
* {In 1999}, {EIR} re-stated its long-standing attacks
against “HongShang’s 150-year tradition as the central bank of
the British opium trade in the Far East, from the time of the two
British Opium Wars of the 19th century.”
* {In 2009}, {EIR} updated the picture yet again,
identifying the role of British-run mega-speculator George Soros
as the key operative behind the move for drug legalization. To
shut down the drug trade, observed Lyndon LaRouche, we must
“eliminate George Soros. Shut down his offshore operations,
remove him from any access to the American political process.
Cart him off to jail.” Then we can talk about an appropriate
strategy to clean up the mess.
* In the same {EIR,} we noted: “But behind each of these
considerations, there is a single underlying reality: {That the
drug trade is the marker of humanity’s descent into a New Dark
Age.} The British Empire is wielding Dope, Inc., today, just as
it waged its Opium War against China in the 19th Century, with an
eye towards menticide and the bestialization of the entire
planet’s population.”
* {In 2012}, as new revelations surfaced about HSBC’s role
in money-laundering, EIR wrote: “Briefed on the HSBC case, Lyndon
LaRouche posed a crucial question: How much of the drug money was
funneled into the 2008 Obama Presidential campaign? LaRouche
cited the pivotal role of British agent and dope legalizer George
Soros in promoting the Obama Presidential run and financing it,
noting that the Mexico-U.S. border area from Arizona and Texas
was flooded with dope money, coming back into the United States,
during the relevant period.”
Today, this enemy agency now known as HSBC, stands exposed
by the U.S. Senate as a criminal enterprise, laundering money for
drug cartels and terrorists. To those who know their history,
this is no surprise. It is past time to put this evil outfit out
of business!
