The import of the 10th annual summit of the BRICS nations in South Africa last week is that the emergence of a new world economic order is taking place. This was manifest in the statements and actions of the heads of state of China, Russia, India, and others, but also reflected in the engagement of the BRICS-Plus guest nations of the “Global South” Outreach, which systematically represented all the major regional economic communities across the Southern Hemisphere, from the Common Market of the South (Mercosur) in South America, to the African Union (AU), to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), through to Southeast Asia. Even before the BRICS summit convened, President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Narendra Modi had each paid a visit to Rwanda, which chairs the African Union for 2018.

The process is moving fast. Millions of people want to develop and move forward. For example, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in Johannesburg that his nation Turkey should join the BRICS, making it “BRICST.” Note that Turkey is the 2018 chair of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which has 57 member states, with 47 having a Muslim majority, and collectively representing 1.3 billion people. Erdogan’s economic advisor, Cemil Ertem, explained on July 25, that a “new politics” is beginning to blossom in Eastern countries, in contrast to the crisis in the West. Ertem said that the expanded BRICS can be the economic “equivalent of “Archimedes’ lever that moved the world.” Follow-on plans from the BRICS summit include, for example, new branch openings of credit banks for development. A BRICS New Development Bank branch will open soon in Sao Paolo, Brazil, and thereafter, Brasilia.

At the conclusion of the BRICS summit, Helga Zepp-LaRouche issued an article, “BRICS Countries at the Center of a New, Just World Economic Order! or Unprecedented in History: How China Is Changing the World!” She said that the summit was “shaped by the spirit of the New Silk Road. It signifies nothing less than that a new era of humanity has begun, where all nations of the world have the right to development on the basis of scientific and technological progress.”

In direct opposition to this advancement come such vile acts as the July 27 assassination of the chief engineer of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam on the Blue Nile, Simegnew Bekele. This is a murderous signal to engineers and scientists everywhere to stay away from development. Give up. Hide out.

So far the police have not released any definitive statements of who is responsible. But—cui bono—the paw prints of a British operation are evident. Though there are antagonisms within Ethiopia, that does not account for targetted assassination. Also, five weeks ago, was the attempted assassination of Ethiopia’s newly-elected Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who is actively working for collaboration for peace and development throughout the Horn of Africa.

These targetted killings and attempted murders hark back to those by the British geopolitical crowd at other critical times in recent history. In Germany, there were the murders of development advocates Buback (1977), Herrhausen (1989), Rohwedder (1991) and others—attributed to the likes of the “Red Army Faction”, a British concoction — and similar deployments.

Now is the time to take every action to put an end to this neo-empire evil once and for all. We must stop the British-pedigree coup-operation against the Presidency of the United States. This makes way for the Trans-Atlantic to join in the historic world development revolution now emergent. Each day the coup operation persists, strategic opportunities are blocked, critical meetings are delayed, and the dangers increase of all-out chaos and war.

Today, there were new signals of the kinds of positive foreign relations that should take place between leaders of the U.S., China, Russia, and others. At the joint press conference at the White House with President Trump, visiting Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said that, “dialogue between the United States and Russia is fundamental…[for] stability and security.” President Trump, who concurred on meeting with President Putin, also said that he is prepared to meet with Iran, any time any where. Said Trump, “I believe in meeting.”

New Paradigm Moves Forward With ‘Singapore Model’: Dialogue, Not War!

The BRICS summit last week in South Africa demonstrated how far the New Silk Road spirit has spread, shaping relations between nations on the basis of mutual benefit. Under the leadership of China’s Xi, Russia’s Putin, and India’s Modi, thel proceedings of the BRICS summit showed that a new era of peaceful cooperation has emerged. Will the Trans-Atlantic nations join it, or follow the British imperial geopoliticians to sabotage it, using assassinations, regime change and general warfare to do so?

To Exit Free Trade and Build Infrastructure at Last: The North American Belt and Road Initiative

The world is currently seeing a new paradigm of cooperative relations and economic development take hold, from its initiation in China’s Belt and Road Initiative, across Eurasia, Southwest Asia, and Africa. It is also watching the major power centers of Europe, on London’s lead, insist on rejecting this new paradigm in favor of geopolitical “zero-sum, win-lose” economic policies and war confrontations with Russia and China.

In the center is the Presidency of Donald Trump: disrupting the confrontation with Russia to the murderous fury of the geopoliticians and their media; fully intending to build a new U.S. economic infrastructure and restore the American industrial worker; but in a hardening trade confrontation with China which threatens his peace diplomacy in Korea and his early good relationship with President Xi Jinping; and with his infrastructure plans having gone nowhere thus far.

There is hope, as Schiller Institute President Helga Zepp-LaRouche observed today, that President Trump will rethink participation in the Belt and Road Initiative and join in, as Japan has recently shifted its policy on this. This might occur as a result of the United States’ very attempts to oppose and compete with China’s New Silk Road in Africa and Southeast Asia, which have been intensified by announcements by Secretary of State Pompeo in recent days.

But a much better way for the confrontation policy to change, is through the proposal of independent Congressional candidate Kesha Rogers, running in Houston’s 9th C.D. against incumbent and “impeachment” leader Rep. Al Green. That proposal, quoting Kesha Rogers: “We should replace NAFTA with the North American Belt and Road Initiative (NABRI), as part of the global Belt and Road Initiatives, or World Land-Bridge, and the creation of a production-oriented New Bretton Woods international financial system.”

The candidate focuses on five areas of development: A North American infrastructure bank or credit institution; a North American Water and Power Alliance; building corridors of high-speed rail and industrial development through the Americas; bringing the Maritime Silk Road through the Caribbean and through the expanded Panama Canal and other new crossings; and sharing on the frontiers of space science.

For President Trump and his constituents fired up to support him against “Russiagate”; for the American workers waiting for NAFTA to be ditched and new infrastructure to get built at last; and for Mexico and its new President-elect, it is the happy solution, and the best.

The (Dying) Elephant in the Room

The City of London is scrambling to keep its control of the $1.5 quadrillion global derivatives bubble intact, under conditions that increasingly indicate its early demise. At issue is the British Empire’s stranglehold over the trans-Atlantic financial system and economies, under conditions of a surging alternative in the form of the Belt and Road Initiative.

One immediate flashpoint is the UK’s “Brexit,” and the City of London’s blackmail demand that they must retain their preeminent control of the world derivatives trade, even as they supposedly “exit” from the European Union. But the British Empire’s existential problem extends way, way beyond Brexit per se. They are threatened by the “exit” of half of humanity from their looting schemes. They are threatened by President Trump’s moves to “exit” from geopolitical confrontation with Russia and China. They are threatened additionally by this week’s emerging alliance between Trump and the Conte government in Italy, which could topple the entire EU structure from the inside.

And they are threatened, of course, by their own overripe bankruptcy, and the conundrum that, even if they maintain, or increase, Quantitative Easing, the speculative bubble of financial assets will contract and implode; and if they slow down QE and raise interest rates, the collapse could be triggered instantaneously. As JPMorganChase CEO Jamie Dimon moaned yesterday, we are facing a looming financial catastrophe: “I don’t want to scare the public, but we’ve never had QE. We’ve never had the reversal… and people can panic when things change.”

Given this elephant in the room, Helga Zepp-LaRouche today warned once again against the shrill anti-China campaign in the West. “Every step in the direction of confrontation, is the opposite of the New Paradigm of win-win cooperation,” of the sort specified by Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Powers proposal, which is the required replacement for the bankrupt trans-Atlantic financial system and its bankrupt geopolitical Old Paradigm.

There are reasons for optimism. Despite the terrible toll of destruction underway in Yemen, Gaza, Syria, and elsewhere in Asia and other points victimized by British geopolitically-stoked strife, developments are occurring, which give grounds for hope and action. Three events stand out.

In Europe yesterday, Russian President Vladimir Putin was received for a state visit to Austria, where the theme of dialogue was struck, going against all the British dirty operations to date, aimed at demonizing Putin and his nation. Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen said in welcome, “Russia is definitely an important part of Europe.” Moreover, as of July 1, Austria will take up the rotating chairmanship of the European Union for six months. On sanctions, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said, they won’t buck Brussels on the EU’s current policy of anti-Russian sanctions. But Austrian leaders have indicated they will move to downsize Brussels, i.e. get a large cohort of European Commission bureaucrats fired!

President Putin said on sanctions, that the measures are “harmful for everyone–those who initiated them, and those who are targetted by them.” Today Gazprom and Austria’s OMV signed an extension until 2040, of their original 50-year-old agreement for natural gas supplies from Russia to Austria. When media pestered Kurz on why Austria isn’t buying U.S. LNG, he pointed out that it’s three times more expensive.

Helga Zepp-LaRouche observed yesterday, that more of Europe is moving towards Russia, though sometimes for the wrong reasons–namely because they can’t deal with the United States. Meantime, the NATO confrontationists continue their provocations. This week, NATO’s Operation Saber has 18,000 troops in a military exercise in the Baltics to practice defense against alleged potential “Russian aggression.”

What people need to understand, to make the whole picture come into focus, is the British (dying) Empire factor in all this, especially behind the coup attempt against the American Presidency. Of significance for this, is the article which was posted yesterday on the site of the Russian state-connected Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC) think tank. Titled, “No More Doubt: It’s the U.K., Not Russia, That Meddled in the U.S. Elections,” by Harley Schlanger, identified as Vice President of the Schiller Institute USA, and National Spokesman for Lyndon LaRouche. The RIAC’s Board of Trustees includes Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Andrei Fursenko, Aide to President Putin.

The Schlanger article states,”From the beginning, the LaRouche movement in the United States has reported that there was no Russian meddling or Trump collusion, but a joint effort by U.S. and British intelligence agencies to defeat Trump, or remove him once he was elected.”He concludes,”That Trump might bring the U.S. into a full collaboration with the emerging New Paradigm, led by China and Russia, generated the hysterical response to his election, and the fiction known as Russiagate. It is this which completes the picture, and makes clear why this regime change operation against Trump must be shut down.”

Putin made reference to the consequences of the induced turmoil in the U.S. in a lengthy interview June 4 with Austria’s ORF TV network. In response to a pushy question about what is taking so long for a Trump-Putin meeting, Putin said, “As for personal meetings, I think that the possibility of these meetings depends to a large extent on the internal political stiuation in the United States.” Putin reviewed specific areas in which there is work going on between the two nations, saying “I hope that some day this work in the interests of the United States and Russia, indeed in the interests of the whole world, will begin, including between us personally.”

Thirdly, developments are moving ahead for the Korean Peninsula. The White House said last night that on June 12 in Singapore, the first meeting will start at 9 a.m., between Chairman Kim Jong-un and President Donald Trump. U.S. and D.P.R.K. officials have had their fifth session on preparations, held this time in the DMZ. This morning, Trump tweeted, “Meeting in Singapore with North Korea will hopefully be the start of something big…we will soon see!”

These events-of-the-day show that there are solutions in the world, and also indicate that they come in relation to the dynamic underway between Russia and China, where, along with India, the area accounts for nearly 3 billions of the world’s people. If we further the collaboration, and defeat the coup operation in the United States, optimism will be rewarded. There is just vengeance. Helga Zepp-LaRouche noted again today, “The principle of the Erinyes, and Ibykus is at work.”

Putin Confirms the ‘Acute Political Struggle’ in the United States Is Delaying Meeting with Trump

Russian President Vladimir Putin gave a lengthy interview to Austria’s ORF news service yesterday, on the eve of his visit to Vienna today. Armin Wolf asked the questions, one of which was, “Why is it taking so long” for there to be a meeting between President Donald Trump and Putin? According to the Kremlin translation, the President replied:

“You should ask our colleagues in the United States. In my opinion, this is the result of the ongoing acute political struggle in the United States. Indeed, Donald Trump and I have, firstly, met more than once at various international venues and secondly, we regularly talk over the phone. Our foreign affairs departments and special services are working fairly well together in areas of mutual interest, above all in the fight against international terrorism. This work is ongoing.

“As for personal meetings, I think that the possibility of these meetings depends to a large extent on the internal political situation in the United States. The congressional election campaign is getting under way and then there will be the next presidential election, and the President of the United States is coming under attack over various matters. I think this is the main reason.

“In a recent telephone conversation, Donald said he was worried about the possibility of a new arms race. I fully agree with him. However, to prevent a possible arms race (we did not initiate such a course of events, we did not withdraw from the Anti-Missile Defense Treaty, we merely responded to the threats that arise for us from this, but I agree with the U.S. President) we should think about it, we should do something about it, give corresponding instructions to our Foreign Ministry and the U.S. State Department. The experts should start working in a concrete way. I hope that some day this work in the interests of the United States and Russia, indeed in the interests of the whole world will begin, including between us personally.”

Don’t Sleep The Summer; History Could Change Completely

Three events by the Schiller Institute show that the new paradigm of economic progress and cooperation among nations which has emerged from Asia, and is starting to transform Africa, can reach into Europe, into war-afflicted Southwest Asia, and can engage President Donald Trump’s America.

On May 30 the Institute joined with China’s embassy in Sweden and the China-Sweden Business Council, to gather a large diplomatic and business audience and make clear why China’s Belt and Road Initiative has grabbed the attention of Eastern Europe and offers economic revival to Western Europe as well. On June 6, the Schiller Institute and Yemen General Investment Authority present a new report on how to rebuild Yemen with the Belt and Road Initiative, even as Saudi Arabia and its “coalition” are attacking and bombing Yemen’s sole lifeline port of Hodeida.

And on June 9 at the Schiller Institute conference in New York, its founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche will be joined by speakers from UN consulates and American leaders pushing President Trump to have a summit with Russian President Putin — indispensable for peace in the Mideast and security worldwide.

That the President’s summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un next Tuesday may lead to thawing the world’s oldest, “insoluble” frozen conflict, is testimony to the new paradigm of national cooperation which has developed in Asia. China, Russia, Japan, India, of course South Korea, are all working for President Trump’s success, allowing him greater freedom to change his approach to a summit process toward denuclearization.

His success will be theirs as well, because of the infrastructural connectivity breakthoughs for all of Eurasia, which can follow peace on the Korean Peninsula.

Later, a Trump-Putin summit, now being worked on against the screaming opposition of British geopolitics and its followers, could bring the same process even into the war zone of Southwest Asia.

Helga LaRouche today described the prospects of the work toward “principles of a shared destiny of mankind” as hopeful. Western Europe, she added, will either replace its current principles (of austerity toward mankind), or explode. Even the halting signs of economic growth in America during Trump’s presidency, have been enough to cause financial circles to decry “decoupling” with a Europe falling back again toward zero growth or worse.

And they are halting, combined with cultural and post-industrial diseases causing American life expectancies to fall and great missions like space exploration to be lost.

We will campaign for Lyndon LaRouche’s “four new economic laws” method for economic revival. Glass-Steagall to break up Wall Street, and national banking to replace it with productive credit, have already been tentatively raised in Italy’s new government. In the United States they have to lead to “science drivers,” crash programs for fusion power and exploration of the Solar System, which bring explosions in productivity.

That is the new paradigm on which the Asian powers want the cooperation of the United States.

Schiller Institute Seminar in Sweden Cuts Through Disinformation on the Belt and Road Initiative

“The Significance of China’s Belt and Road Initiative for World Economic Development” was the theme of a seminar hosted in Stockholm on May 30 by the Schiller Institute, the Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Sweden, and China Eastern Airlines, with the support of the Embassy of China and the China Cultural Center and in cooperation with the China-Sweden Business Council.

Chinese Ambassador to Sweden, Mr. Gui Congyuo.

On the diplomatic level, the event was addressed by the Chinese Ambassador to Sweden, Mr. Gui Congyuo; the Ambassador of Pakistan, Mr. Ahmad Hussain Dayo; and the Chargé d’Affaires of South Africa in Sweden, Mr. Duncan Moopelo Sebefelo. It drew scores of highly motivated participants, including many diplomats, as well as representatives of Swedish industries and businesses, as well as Swedish government institutions. The diplomatic presence underscored that the New Silk Road or Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is not just about China and Europe, but is international in scope.

Mr. Gui Congyuo opened the proceedings on the significance of the BRI for global economic development, emphasizing that it is not a geopolitical project, but unites nations around a common goal of eradicating poverty and creating prosperous societies all over the world. He was followed by Stephen Brawer of the Schiller Institute in Sweden who gave a presentation on “The Strategic Significance of the BRI: Overcoming Geopolitics,” which included a strong attack on “the modern form of the British Empire.” He contrasted the aim of connectivity and integrated development promoted by China to the traditional doctrine of geopolitics, as associated with Halford Mackinder’s “Heartland” theory. Both in his presentation and in the Q&A discussion, Brawer challenged the Swedish government to act as an independent nation and join the BRI, as Austria did. He also called on the Swedish authorities to reopen the Confucius Institutes, whose license was withdrawn a few years ago, and convene seminars similar to this one.

Ambassador Ahmad Hussain Dayo welcomed the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which China is building in Pakistan from the Chinese border to the Indian Ocean port of Gwadar, which will bring immediate and long-term benefits to both his nation and also open up the landlocked neighboring countries in Central Asia, while providing a shortcut into China for the Maritime Silk Road. The South African Chargé d’´Affaires, as representative of a member country of the BRICS, presented a global perspective, and brought up the historical colonial past by referring to the Bandung Conference defining relations between Asia and Africa.

Hussein Askary opened the second panel with a speech on “The Potentially Transformative Impact of the Belt and Road on Sweden, Europe and Third Parties.” He presented the work of the Schiller Institute since the early 1990s in promoting the New Silk Road, and contrasted the paradigmatic shift in thinking in the West and China, by presenting LaRouche’s “Typical Collapse Function” (Triple Curve) historic forecast. Askary also presented the incredible achievements China has made at home and its willingness to share that with developing countries, focusing specifically on Africa.

 

Askary was followed by managers of various companies from China and Sweden. Tracy Suo, Deputy General Manager of Bank of China Stockholm Branch, presented the impact of the BRI policies on today’s economy. Two Swedish consultants presented ways and means to develop business, especially production and infrastructure, between China and Sweden. The head of China Eastern Airlines, who sponsored the seminar, presented his expanding airline network between Europe and China/Asia.

During the discussion period, Ulf Sandmark, a leader of the Swedish Schiller Institute, brought up the model of Swedish Chinese industrial cooperation experience from the Volvo Cars success story, calling for extending this model of Swedish-Chinese innovative industrial cooperation to the BRI projects in Africa.

This seminar came amidst a major mobilization in the media and think tanks against the BRI, describing China as a new hegemon in the world. An unprecedented number of seminars on the theme have been, and will be held around on June 4th, when a new state-backed think tank, the New Silk Road Observatory, will be established amid a lot of fanfare. The Schiller Institute Seminar is the only one with a positive and constructive tone. In answering questions, the Chinese Ambassador told the audience to ask the Schiller Institute if they had questions about the Belt and Road, because they have the best knowledge of it.
