Trump Being Trapped By London and Wall Street—He Must Be Protected

As Donald Trump begins his first week in office as President of the United States, the Western world is in a dangerous state of tumult and indecision, but one of extraordinary potential. The direction the Trump presidency will take is uncertain. While Trump campaigned against the role of Wall Street over Obama and Hillary, and explicitly called for restoring Glass Steagall to end the power of Wall Street over government, his choice for Secretary of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin, claimed in his Congressional confirmation hearing that neither he nor Trump want to restore Glass Steagall, since, he said, it would disrupt “liquidity and the capital markets.” This is particularly absurd, since it comes as the entire western financial system is facing a catastrophic collapse of the $2 quadrillion (that is, 2 and 15 zeros) derivative bubble — gambling debts sucking the blood out of the real economy.

“Trump is in trouble,” Lyndon LaRouche asserted today, pointing to his exposure to huge debts and creditors who are trying to hold him to account on behalf of the City of London and Wall Street. “We need to clean out the dirty operators — we need a clean operation in the U.S., that will protect Trump and protect the country.” LaRouche has called on the Congress to reject Mnuchin’s appointment to Treasury, and to immediately restore Glass Steagall as the necessary first step to restoring the nation’s real economy.

The Wall Street power over leading elements of both political parties is now exposed, as the right wing Republican’s and their fellow Obama Democrats have joined forces to instigate the removal of Trump from office by any means necessary. Members of Congress and elements in the intelligence community are “investigating” connections between Trump and his cabinet appointees with the Russian government, playing on the absolute hysteria against Russia and Vladimir Putin by the Obama circle (who, as Putin said last week, “keep saying goodbye but don’t leave”).

The London Spectator on Jan. 21 ran an article by BBC journalist Paul Wood titled: “Will Donald Trump be assassinated, ousted in a coup, or just impeached?” In this vein, the Soros-funded Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) today filed a suit in the New York courts accusing Trump of violating the Constitutional ban on office holders receiving “Emoluments” (payments) from foreign governments, arguing that foreign governments or officials paying for a hotel room in a Trump hotel is the same as a criminal payoff, and likewise for foreign government linked banks lending to a Trump company.

It should be no surprise that the head of CREW, David Brock, is the same person who ran the press campaign called “Troopergate” against President Bill Clinton. Those who think Brock has “changed sides” know nothing about the ways of the British Empire.

The fact that China and Russia have set in motion a new paradigm for mankind provides the needed direction for the new Trump administration, and for Europe and the United States generally. China’s New Silk Road process is bringing massive infrastructure development, and cooperation in scientific research and space exploration, to every nation willing to participate — and the offer stands for the US to join in that process. The Russians, meanwhile, opened a meeting in Kazakhstan today bringing together the Syrian government and the leading Syrian opposition groups, to consolidate the ongoing ceasefire in the horrendous war instigated by Obama in that once-beautiful country, while beginning a process for a political settlement. It has a chance to work precisely because the British and their puppet Obama are not involved, no longer able to demand regime change rather than cooperation in fighting ISIS and Al Qaeda.

Every development in the world today is further evidence that Lyndon LaRouche has been profoundly correct, in every forecast of the unavoidable doom of the British monetarist system, and in the necessary New Paradigm required to bring the world together for a new age of development, scientific cooperation, and a Renaissance based on the best traditions of all the world’s great cultures. It is time for people of good will to acknowledge that unique role of Lyndon LaRouche, and join forces in this pregnant moment in history to bring about that global human Renaissance.
