At the very moment that the BRICS heads of state were meeting in Goa, India, mapping out collaboration on a new paradigm of state cooperation in great projects, President Obama was dispatching Vice President Joe Biden to deliver a direct threat to Russia. Appearing on NBC TV on Sunday morning, Biden vowed that the United States would conduct a covert cyber attack on Russia at a time or place of Obama’s choosing. Russian officials, including Presidential spokesman Peskov, have condemned these threats in the sharpest of terms, calling it the most direct threat of war since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.
Those threats are coming from a President Obama who already has the blood of countless people on his hands, through his Tuesday “kill sessions” and the unrelenting drone warfare being conducted on many continents–all without any Constitutionally-mandated authorization from Congress. Now the United States is openly engaging in coalition warfare on behalf of the Saudis against Yemen, conducting artillery fire from U.S. Navy ships in the Gulf of Yemen, even as the world recoils from the Saudi blatant war crimes in targeting civilians for bombing raids in the Yemeni capital of Sana’a.
And it is this Obama Administration that is accusing Russia of war crimes in the battle to unseat Al Qaeda from its control over parts of the Syrian city of Aleppo–and is once again threatening sanctions against Moscow. Secretary of State John Kerry was in London on Sunday, following two days of meetings in Lausanne, Switzerland about the Syria war, where he met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and foreign ministers from Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, U.A.E., Iran, Iraq and Jordan. He and British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson came out of their London meeting vowing to impose new sanctions on Russia–unless they stop their assault on Al Qaeda.
Obama carries forward the legacy of tyranny associated with two former Bush Presidents, including the George H.W. Bush who railroaded Lyndon LaRouche into jail, in what former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark called the greatest case of political frame-up ever. The policies of the two Bush Administrations, made even worse by Obama, have bankrupted the United States, wiped out what little remained of the U.S. health care system, and threw millions of households onto the scrap heap of poverty and chronic unemployment. 93.5 million Americans of working age are not even counted in the labor force! Just this month, 1.8 million American households received form letters in the mail, informing them that their Obamacare premiums were going up by 50-70%, while their coverage was being slashed. Even former President Bill Clinton had the sense to publicly call this “the craziest thing he’s ever seen.”
Obama and his British masters and Saudi partners are, in reality, the ones who are bankrupt. It is their trans-Atlantic financial system that is finished. As Lyndon LaRouche observed on Sunday in talks with colleagues, the British economy is totally broken down. They are desperate to lash out and make threats against Russia and China, hoping that their lies will get some traction. They are bankrupt but dangerous. The reality is that there are clear solutions, starting with the ouster of Obama and the immediate reinstating of Glass-Steagall. The entire global derivatives bubble, amounting to more than a quadrillion dollars, must be cancelled. With those initial steps accomplished, a recovery can be launched immediately, using Hamiltonian methods, as recently spelled out in Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Laws.
The first step in all of this is for leading citizens to abandon their fears and take leadership in bringing Obama the Killer down and initiating the recovery, starting with Glass-Steagall. The recent victories in forcing Obama to release the 28 pages, damning the Saudi Monarchy as the authors of the 9/11 attacks, and the passage by Congress of the JASTA bill, are illustrative of the power that can be unleashed through a concentration of patriotic forces. The fact that the Obama veto of JASTA was over-ridden by an overwhelming bipartisan majority in both Houses of Congress is a powerful reminder that the vast majority of Americans hate Obama and everything he has done and stands for. The Saudis are trying to paper over the devastating defeat that they and Obama suffered in the JASTA fight, by spending $100 million in lobbying to try to undo the damage. They are doomed to fail.
What is now vital is that the same level of mobilization of leading citizens that went into the JASTA victory is maintained and directed against Obama and for the implementation of the Glass-Steagall and other measures.
A crucial feature of the JASTA victory was the four performances of the Mozart Requiem by the Schiller Institute chorus in the New York City area on the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. It injected a vital dimension of cultural optimism through the beauty of the performances–at a moment that a desperate British enemy is trying to bury any source of optimism through the pornographic show called the 2016 presidential campaign.
No matter what the outcome on election day, the nation and the world at large will still be facing the disintegration of the entire British-run trans-Atlantic financial system and the threat of war and chaos. The solutions are available to prevent that collapse and that is the priority agenda. That is the source of strength for overcoming our fellow citizens’ fears and achieving a tough victory. It can be done.
