On the 75th Anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack on Dec. 7, 1941 — “a date which will live in infamy,” as FDR declared — a similar shock is spreading through the United States, and the world, as the British Empire is facing its possible final demise. Politically, economically, and strategically, the Empire is trembling, with Mt. Olympus crumbling under its feet.
Politically, the overwhelming rejection by the Italian population of the EU-dictated referendum to hand power over to the Brussels bureaucrats acting on behalf of the City of London banks, adds one more blow to the Brexit, the Trump victory, the Fillon victory in France, the Duterte victory in the Philippines, and a sense everywhere that the British “globalization” of the world under bankers control is coming to an end.
Economically, the frantic effort to keep the European banks afloat through more QE, more money printing, more bail-ins and more bail-outs — the same failed efforts used by Bush and Obama in the U.S. — are increasingly recognized as a cover for the destruction of people’s livelihoods, shutting down productive employment and productivity itself to save the speculators. Plus, it doesn’t even work to save the banks!
Strategically, the “regime change” wars waged by Bush, Blair, Cameron, and Obama across the Middle East, turning country after country over to bestial terrorist gangs, are coming to an end on the battlefields of Syria. Aleppo is nearly liberated from al-Qaeda and ISIS, the creations of the British and Saudi Monarchies. As Col. (ret.) Pat Lang noted on his blog Sic Semper Tyrannis: “What has happened in the cauldron of the civil war is that a new force has appeared in the Levant. A new Syrian Arab Army now exists thanks to Russian training, equipment and advice.”
Further solidifying this rejection of British Imperial policy, Donald Trump last night in North Carolina stated in his strongest formulation yet: “We will stop racing to topple foreign regimes that we know nothing about; that we shouldn’t be involved with. This destructive cycle of intervention and chaos must finally come to an end…. We seek harmony and goodwill among the nations of the world.”
The basis of that harmony has been presented in detail in the EIR Special Report The New Silk Road Becomes the World Land-Bridge, now circulating worldwide in English, Chinese, and Arabic. Over the past week, two political leaders from China, Patrick Ho, former Hong Kong Secretary of Home Affairs, and Vice Foreign Minister Fu Ying from Beijing, told American audiences in Washington and New York that President-elect Trump has the potential to bring China and the United States together in global nation-building by joining Xi Jinping’s Silk Road projects, the One Belt, One Road, and accepting the standing offer for cooperation from President Xi, which Obama had rejected in favor of military confrontation with both China and Russia. Trump has made extremely clear that he will work with President Putin in defeating terrorism, and in other areas to be determined. Today he made another positive gesture towards Beijing by appointing Iowa Governor Terry Branstad to be the next Ambassador to China. Branstad is a close personal friend of President Xi Jinping, stemming from Xi’s multiple visits to Iowa over the years.
To truly bring America into a cooperative relationship with Russia and China, the bankruptcy of the trans-Atlantic banking system must be resolved, preferably before an uncontrolled breakdown crisis. This requires immediate restoration of Franklin Roosevelt’s Glass-Steagall legislation, writing off the worthless derivative bubble which is driving the real economy into Hell. Today, teams of organizers from across the East Coast are in Washington, giving the usually clueless members of Congress their marching orders, to join the worldwide revolutionary ferment, ending the British Empire’s financial dictatorship through Glass-Steagall and the restoration of Hamiltonian directed national credit for industry, agriculture, infrastructure, fusion power, and space exploration. The power to do so is in our hands at this moment, a moment which will also “live in infamy” if we fail. As in 1941, all patriots of their nations, and citizens of the world, have the opportunity to change history for the better by joining this historic international fight to create a civilization worthy of the dignity of all men and women.
