The historic meetings of President Trump with President Putin, and then with President Xi Jinping, on the sidelines of the G20 meeting in Hamburg, have set in motion a new potential power in the world — not a geopolitical power to impose itself on others, but a power for the Good, bringing nations together to advance their common humanity. While Trump and Putin are now working together to end the terrorist insurgency in Syria, and potentially across the Mideast, Trump and Xi Jinping have rededicated themselves to cooperation internationally as part of the New Silk Road.
This is viewed with horror by the enemies of peace, who are in a state of panic to sabotage the “new detente” (as one scholar put it) between the U.S. and Russia. The corrupt former CIA chief John Brennan railed that Trump proclaiming he was honored to meet President Putin was a “dishonorable thing to say.” Nikki Haley, despite the fact that she was appointed to be Permanent Representative to the UN by Trump, said after his productive and friendly meeting with President Putin that “we can’t trust Russia and we won’t ever trust Russia.”
Not ever? “Such venom is insane,” Helga Zepp-LaRouche said yesterday in a conference call with members of the EIR intelligence team. “We must engage in a dialogue of cultures. Each country is an entity, with a language and a culture. It may not be perfect, but it is made up of people, which make up humanity.” To say that we can never trust Russia, she added, “is worse than the KKK insisting that Black people should never have political rights. Each nation has a history, with periods of development and periods of decay, but nations are made up of human beings.”
Trump, she said, “has demonstrated that you can talk to people, both in the U.S. and in other nations, in a way that they do not feel they are being run over. We are in a situation where we can now fight for humanity as a whole.” The U.S.-China Comprehensive Economic Dialogue, scheduled to meet on July 19 to discuss the results of the “100 day plan” set in motion by Trump and Xi at the Mar-a-Lago Summit on April 6, “can demonstrate what a new economic reality can look like internationally,” Zepp-LaRouche said.
There is unquestionably an upsurge of anger in the U.S. at the attempt to overthrow President Trump, and at the Russophobia which is at the center of that effort. This anger can and must be turned into optimism, based on the fact that the new Russia-China-U.S. cooperation provides a basis for bringing the United States back to its historical role as a “Beacon of Hope” to the world, rather than its role under Bush and Obama as a tool of Wall Street austerity and British neo-colonial warfare.
Lyndon LaRouche, in the same conference call yesterday, said that to bring this to fruition, there must be a national movement, an organized process to deal with the ongoing breakdown of the nation’s financial institutions and the decrepit infrastructure of our nation. July 10, yesterday, was Day One of the “Summer from Hell,” as New York Governor Cuomo called it, as sections of the Penn Station rail hub for regional trains and the New York subway system are shut down for desperately overdue repair, setting off even greater chaos than what has become the normal course of de-railings, delays, and breakdowns throughout the system. Only a “New Silk Road”-style approach to rebuilding the New York transportation system, and the other decrepit infrastructure in New York and other American Cities, can reverse the cascading collapse now unfolding across the nation.
The necessary program is spelled out in LaRouche’s Four Laws: Glass-Steagall, national banking, directed credit for the physical economy, and the required science drivers centered on fusion power and the space program. The defense of Trump’s presidency and the consolidation of the partnership with Russia and China requires this national focus by a mobilized citizenry.
