Diane Sare leads our weekly discussion in Manhattan about the role of Lyndon LaRouche’s leadership in steering the U.S. and world into the profound moment of decision facing citizens around the globe presently.
Attorney General William Barr said at his press conference yesterday morning that what Donald Trump faced at the beginning of his presidency was unprecedented: attempting to form an administration, while his own intelligence community was investigating him as an agent of a foreign power. Perhaps Lincoln’s having to dodge British-assisted Confederate assassination attempts to get to his inauguration was worse; nothing else comes close. The British intelligence hand orchestrated both attacks.
To cite a report by Barbara Boyd on yesterday’s release of the Mueller report, “When Donald Trump was informed by Jeff Sessions that a Special Counsel was being appointed, he said, according to Mueller’s report, ‘Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I’m f**ked…. Everyone tells me if you get one of these independent counsels it ruins your presidency…. It takes years and years, and I won’t be able to do anything. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me.’
“Perversely, this absolutely true statement by the President, borne out by months of an insane inquisition which crippled his ability to act, is cited by Mueller’s crew of biased prosecutors for the proposition that the President repeatedly skirted obstructing justice. Trump, on the other hand, has constantly referred to the obstruction charges hung over his head by RESIST Congress members, the bipartisan Washington, D.C. ‘establishment’ and intelligence community, and a controlled news media as a brake on his ability to fight back and communicate directly with the American people about what was happening to their presidency and their Constitution.”
The President can now see his attorneys and the Justice Department begin to investigate the perpetrators, but the spotlight must fall on the British intelligence drive to entrap and stop or remove Trump led by Sir Richard Dearlove’s MI6 circles and “Five Eyes” collaborators.
Only then could the real traps of McCarthyism by which the President is still almost completely constrained, be attacked. His new American Moon-Mars mission; America’s industrial renewal and recovery of its heartland; his desired new infrastructure and science frontiers; his policy of great-power collaboration for the end of endless states of war: All these depend on the good, cooperative relationships with China’s Xi Jinping and Russia’s Vladimir Putin which Trump desired as candidate and President.
That has been made impossible through his Presidency thus far, and still is — until British intelligence’s new McCarthyism is defeated.
Simply “no collusion, no obstruction” won’t achieve this. In these respect to these crucial objectives, Trump’s Presidency will remain “f**ked” by British intelligence until it is defeated.
That can’t be done except by the leadership of Lyndon LaRouche’s movement, in his name. He was the British imperial system’s American adversary for 50 years, during which London controlled the key policies of American presidents. LaRouche represented the American System of economics and the real America to many nations which otherwise saw British imperialism with American power. And he, with his “four economic laws” beginning with Glass-Steagall and Hamiltonian national banking, provided the economic and scientific policies to bring the United States into cooperation with other great powers for the benefit of humanity. Now, his exoneration — investigating and reversing the prosecutorial war against LaRouche which was overseen by the same Robert Mueller for the same British geopolitical power — uniquely will free up the American Presidency.
It is becoming increasingly clear to the American population that they are the victims of a massive psychological warfare operation which engages them, intellectually, on the level of a Manichean soap opera. For or against Donald Trump? Do you believe there is any reality to the Mueller report? How could there be given that it began and has ended as a British intelligence operation aimed at subverting the rising revolutionary spirit in the advanced sector and blinding people to historic developments led by China, and trapping an American presidency into impotence. We are in position to determine the future direction of this fight. We have insisted on the British control of the operations against Trump from the beginning and now many are coming to recognize it. As opposed to everyone else, the British recognized that Trump could win, given the rebellion that had already occurred with Brexit. Hence, the ferocity of their operations against Trump.
Now, they are exposed. Destroying their influence is in the realm of a method of thinking and ideas unique, at this moment in history, to Lyndon LaRouche. How do we use this moment to advance this fight. Join us for tonight’s discussion.
On Thursday morning, Attorney General William Barr is scheduled to release the Mueller report, with redactions, according to laws regarding security and the privacy of Grand Jury proceedings. While the Trump haters and conspirators are preparing various operations to keep Russiagate going, despite the report’s exoneration of Trump’s imagined “collusion,” the reality that the British ran the entire operation, as identified from the beginning by EIR, is now bursting out into the open, and is threatening to be the subject of criminal investigations in the Department of Justice and in the Congress.
The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross on Tuesday ran an article titled: “Former British Spymaster Has Flown Under the Radar in Russia Probe, Despite Links to Key Figures.” He names Richard Deerlove, MI6 chief from 1999 to 2004, as a key operative working with fellow MI6 operative Christopher Steele, the author of the now discredited dossier on Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia. Deerlove was also directly involved in setting up several Trump Campaign operatives for fake links to Russia (George Papadopolous, Carter Page, Gen. Flynn), together with British intelligence assets Joseph Mifsud and CIA asset Stefan Halper, a close ally of Deerlove at Cambridge.
Meanwhile, Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox News Tuesday that he will immediately investigate three cases of suspected “set ups,” efforts to create fake connections between the Trump campaign and the Russians, all directly run by British operatives: the Mifsud role with Australian Ambassador Alexander Downer in falsely connecting George Papadopoulos to Russian spies; Halper and Deerlove setting up Gen. Flynn with fake Russian connections; and the infamous Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer, set up by the slimy British operative Rob Goldstone.
What’s more, the VIPS (Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity) issued a public Memorandum for President Trump on Tuesday, called “The Fly in the Mueller Ointment,” warning him that the Mueller report, despite finding no evidence of collusion, maintains the lie that the Russians hacked leading Democratic Party computers and provided their emails to Wikileaks, falsely described as a Russian front. Detailing their forensic proof that the emails were downloaded, not hacked, the VIPS warn the President that if these lies are allowed to stand, the idea that Trump was elected due to Russian “interference” in the election will remain, “and that melody will linger on for the rest of your presidency, unless you seize the moment…. You are the President, and there may be no better time than now to face them down.” (see Bill Binney interview with LPAC.)
Ironically, despite the flurry of slanderous obituaries in the US and the UK, the death of Lyndon LaRouche in February has, at the same time, focused the attention of people around the world on the fact that LaRouche has led an historic battle over the past fifty years to expose the British effort to subvert and control the United States. British maintenance of the US as a “dumb giant,” carrying out the Empire’s colonial wars in Southeast Asia and the Middle East, was aimed primarily at keeping the U.S. divided from Russia and China, while preparing for the next global war. The fact that Trump has broken from this British leash, and insists that the U.S. should be friends with Russia and China, and must stop the “endless” colonial wars, terrifies the British and their American assets.
The potential that the LaRouche policy could be adopted has never been greater, thus returning the United States to its original Hamiltonian “American System,” and bringing the nations of the world together in a New Silk Road-based economic and cultural renaissance. This is our task — putting the exoneration of LaRouche in the forefront of the mobilization to replace the dying British Empire with a new universal paradigm, based on sovereign nations collaborating in the development of mankind on Earth and in the Solar System, and bringing dominion over the universe.
Two days ago the world witnessed, dumbstruck, the terrible fire which destroyed significant portions of the Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral, one of humanity’s great cultural treasures. The occasion unleashed an unformed sentiment of deep loss across the planet, a sense based on the universal character of Mankind which transcends all secondary differences of space and time.
Its import was best captured by Jacques Cheminade, former French presidential candidate and long-time friend and associate of the American statesman Lyndon LaRouche, who stated:
“I just learned about the fire at the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris. I want to express here the emotion that we all feel, friends and political allies; an emotion all the stronger because we just concluded our seminar at Autun, home to the St. Lazarus cathedral, the older sister of Notre Dame de Paris. Our cathedrals, centers of education for all, inspired the industrial and agricultural revolutions of the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries. Through them the connection between soul and matter which always brings about a superior good for humanity, becomes manifest.
“That in the 21st century, in France, in Paris, such an accident has been possible, overwhelms me. It is time to pull ourselves together in all areas of human activity, because we cannot remain inactive in those areas where humanity is at stake, and where human beings create objects so beautiful that they must be there forever, and for all of us sources of joy.”
The response to the loss of Notre Dame is nearly identical to the sentiment which rises up, albeit in a more positive form, with the breathtaking news last week of the proof of the existence of a black hole at the center of a galaxy 53.5 million light years away, and very possibly at the center of each of the 2 trillion galaxies currently known to exist. Equally breathtaking is the way the discovery was made, using eight telescopes spread around the globe, which together—only together—created a “telescope” with an aperture barely large enough to detect and image the process which Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity had assured us had to exist.
As Helga Zepp-LaRouche commented: “First of all, it’s a wonderful example that, in order to resolve such really fundamental questions of our universe, you need international cooperation, because this kind of imaging would never have been possible with one nation having a telescope all by itself; but they had to use eight, and even among them, they could not cover the entire spectrum, so what they did is to basically have algorithms, calculating the space in between them and therefore forming a hypothesis…. The dimension of these questions is so big that it demonstrates that if we, as the one humanity, on the little blue planet, want to get a better reading of what kind of universe we inhabit … it makes very clear that this international space cooperation is a foretaste of the kind of collaboration for the future of humanity.”
Contemplating these matters, one feels simultaneously very small—barely a speck in the created physical universe—and at the same time very large—possessing a creative capacity to contemplate, fathom, and eventually discover the universal physical principles behind such immense processes in the universe. As Friedrich Schiller wrote in his “Aesthetical Estimation of Magnitude”:
“Reason insists, in accordance with its necessary laws, upon absolute totality of perception, and without letting itself be rebuffed by the necessary limitation of the power of imagination, the mind requires from it a complete summation of all the parts of a given quantum in one simultaneous mental image. The power of imagination is thus compelled to exhaust the entire scope of its comprehensive capacities, but because it nevertheless does not complete this task to the end, and, all exertions notwithstanding, cannot extend its scope, the power of imagination sinks back into itself exhausted, and sensuous man experiences with painful disquiet his limitations.
“But is it an external force, which gives him this experience of his limitations? Is it the fault of the measureless ocean, or the infinite star-sown heaven, that I become self- conscious of my impotence while representing their greatness? Whence, in that event, do I know, that their greatness exceeds the reach of my representation, and that I can obtain no totality of their image? Do I, indeed, know of these objects, that they are supposed to constitute a totality of a mental image?—I could only know this by virtue of my mental image of them, and in no other way, and yet it is presupposed, that I cannot imagine them as a totality. They are thus not presented to me as a totality, and I myself am the very one, who first put the concept of totality into them. I thus already have this idea in me, and I myself, the thinking being, am the very one, by which I, the being who makes representations of images of the intellect, am vanquished. In contemplating these great objects, I indeed experience my powerlessness, but I experience it through my strength. I am not vanquished by Nature, I am vanquished by mine own self.”
And what does all of this have to do with the the state of the world, and solving the terrible crises we face today? Helga Zepp-LaRouche addressed the matter in a discussion with associates yesterday:
“We have to take on this anti-China campaign very much from a sovereign standpoint, because the reality is that there could be no greater discrepancy between what China is actually doing, and the neocon-neoliberal attack on China. The argument that China is an `authoritarian’ model, comes from the same Frankfurt School/Hannah Arendt kind of perspective as the attacks on Lyndon LaRouche as an `authoritarian personality.’ It is important to understand that methodology.
“What is the reality about China? For 2,500 years they have had the Confucian ideal of a beautiful character as the aim of education in society. Xi Jinping is on the record saying that the aesthetical education of man is absolutely important, because the goal of it is a beautiful mind and a beautiful soul.
“That is in total contrast to the `everything-goes’ liberal philosophy of the British system—or the West in general, because you have the same on both sides of the Atlantic, albeit with different predicates: everything from the opioid epidemic to the violence in the schools to the effects of the addiction to digital devices, which leads to brain damage.
“The antidote against that, obviously, is it is more urgent than ever to foster the aesthetical education of Man. Because when Schiller wrote as a comment to the collapse of the French Revolution that a great moment had found a little people, and that the aesthetical education was the absolute only way to improve the political situation, he said that any improvement in politics from now on can only occur through the aesthetical education. That means that you need great classical art and the confrontation with beauty in painting, literature, music, all kinds of forms of art. Because beauty belongs both to the senses but also to the realm of reason. The notion of beauty is derived in the classics from Reason, and not from the sense. But it also appeals to the senses, and therefore uplifts the person in a playful way, as Schiller describes in the Aesthetical Letters.
“There are Chinese scholars who have basically completely picked up on that in modern times.
“The older generation in the West looks at the condition of the youth and they see complete moral depravity. Youth no longer have judgment for history, for strategic issues—they don’t even know what strategic means. They have been deprived of everything. They think that knowledge is Googling or something.
“If you ask older people what is the most pressing issue, what are you most worried about, many people say: the total collapse of morality in society. If you ask people what do you think is the most pressing issue, many times you get back as an answer not necessarily unemployment, the war danger, or anything like that, but just this collapse of moral values.
“We have to make sure that we answer that. And emphatically that involves both correcting the image of China in this way, but also posing the issue of the aesthetical education and why we have to have a cultural renaissance. And the space program makes clear that this is not only a necessity, but also an absolute possibility. Because if you want to have the next generations being space generations, you need to apply the extra-terrestrial imperative of the great German-American space scientist Krafft Ehricke, because in space you have to have a different kind of discipline. You have to organize your world in a rational way, or otherwise you won’t survive in space. As Krafft Ehricke always said, what he liked about the Schiller Institute was that we have this idea that people have to become better people, and that morality has to be strengthened through the aesthetical process.”
That is a mission which arises anew from the ashes of Notre Dame de Paris.
As far as is known, there are just three men who have conclusive evidence that the Russians did NOT hack the DNC in 2016, and are willing to put it forward. Even after the collapse of the “Russia collusion” hoax, when Mueller’s investigation was unable to find any collusion, the still-surviving lie that Russia hacked the DNC and gave the hacked data to WikiLeaks, is still central to London’s intention to pit the U.S. against Russia.
One of the three is former NSA Technical Director William Binney, who has marshalled all the known forensic evidence to show that the data was taken over the DNC’s own network rather than through the internet, so that it was an insider “leak” or the like, rather than a hack. Then-CIA Director Pompeo met with Binney at President Trump’s request in 2017, but never followed up that interview, and continued to insist that Russia had hacked the DNC. Binney was never interviewed by investigators subsequently, or asked to testify before Congress.
Binney’s remains the only known investigation based on forensic evidence, in large part because the FBI inexplicably failed to impound the DNC servers after the alleged hack, as President Trump has often pointed out.
The second witness is Britain’s former Ambassador Craig Murray, a friend of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Murray told the London Guardian on Dec. 10, 2016, that the CIA claim that Russia hacked the DNC emails was “bullshit.” “I know who leaked them,” he added. “I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian, and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.” Murray still maintains this today, but has never been called to testify to investigators or to Congress.
The third is Assange himself, who told then-Representative Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) a year ago that “I have physical proof that the Russians did not give me this…” Rohrabacher wanted to discuss this with President Trump, but he was sidelined. And neither Congress nor investigators have interviewed Assange either. Assange went on to tell the Congressman, “I have physical proof that I would be very happy to provide once I can leave the Ecuadorian embassy without being arrested.”
But wait–wasn’t he just dragged out of that embassy by British police and arrested this morning? Couldn’t this have something to do with it?
Indeed it does. After the collapse of Russiagate and the beginning of Attorney General Barr’s ongoing investigation of that hoax and its origins, London is in deep coverup mode. Even though the U.S. has asked that Assange be extradited to face a hokey “conspiracy” charge in the Eastern District of Virginia, the operation to force him out of asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy has British, not U.S. fingerprints all over it. Still, many U.S. hard-liners are passionate against Assange; at a minimum, London hopes to muddy the waters to keep the truth from coming out. Let’s get it out!
The “fake news” media has now dropped its pretense of having ever had any intention of allowing the truth—as documented in U.S. Attorney General Barr’s summary of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s report, exonerating President Donald Trump of having “conspired or coordinated with the Russian government”—to thoroughly refute the Russiagate “Big Lie.” Soon, however, it is certain that the deliberate, British Intelligence-originated, military-grade disinformation campaign carried out against the United States, including to this day, will be exposed.
The truth is, that a foreign government did indeed meddle in the American Presidential election, in a failed attempt to fix the outcome, but it was not Russia. It was the City of London, and the Five Eyes imperial intelligence services of the British Commonwealth, along with treasonous, “Tory” American elements. If that admission is forced to the surface, through the vigorous actions of all that oppose the presently dominant Big Lie tyranny, that revelation will shock and liberate people all over the world. The mental stranglehold of “fake news” media outlets can be permanently broken. That is the task of the next days and weeks.
“It’s hard to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if there is no cat,” says the Chinese proverb. Yet, although the Mueller report was called a “nothing burger,” it was not: it still presented the potentially lethal lie that twelve Russian gremlins, code-named Guccifer 2.0, hacked the DNC. Sundry media meatheads thus continue to blog and broadcast about “what else is really there.”
The false Russian hack story, still being repeated, marches on, undeterred, like the emperor without any clothes. One lame-brained variation, promoted in order to cover up the British role, states that Hillary Clinton, rather than Trump, colluded with the Russians. It is being repeated by Republicans and Democrats alike, some of them malicious, some of them confused, and all of them completely wrong. The media, such as the failed New York Times and various electronic media, must be forced to either admit the truth, or be even more thoroughly discredited than they already have been. They must stop their constant repetition of this Joseph Goebbels-like Big Lie. There must be a vigorous dissemination of the truth by all those journalists, politicians, activists and citizens that love truth more than their own assumptions, including about President Trump, or other dearly-held systems of false belief.
Apart from documenting the presence of “former” British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, former MI6 head Sir Richard Dearlove, and former GCHQ head Robert Hannigan at the center of the Russiagate campaign against President Trump for the past several years, we must, in order to expose this successfully, identify not only what was actually done and who was doing it, but the deeper policy motivation: why it was done.
The world is actually on the verge of ending the military conflicts among the major world powers, such as Russia, China, the United States, and India. These four powers, and not the City of London, are the key fulcrum around which a new era in humanity’s future will be decided. A new monetary and credit system brought into being through these four powers would foster the greatest physical economic growth in the history of humanity. In addition, discussions involving Italy working with China on the industrialization of the African continent (discussions which could soon also involve the United States) show that sections of Europe want to join China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and leave the dying trans-Atlantic financial empire behind.
The recent announcement of a United States commitment to return to the Moon by 2024 can, in particular, become the basis for a proposal to other nations—for example, China, Russia, and India, all of whom are space powers of demonstrated capability—to resolve their differences on Earth in a higher, joint mission. As Russia’s Roscosmos Director Dmitry Rogozin said in a recent interview:
“I am a fierce proponent of international cooperation, including with Americans, because their country is big and technologically advanced, and they can make good partners… Especially since personal and professional relations between Roscosmos and NASA at the working level are great.”
There is also the possibility of ending the danger of thermonuclear war. President Trump, speaking on April 4 of the prospects for world peace, stated:
“Between Russia, China, and us, we’re all making hundreds of billions of dollars worth of weapons, including nuclear, which is ridiculous. I think it’s much better if we all got together and didn’t make these weapons… those three countries I think can come together and stop the spending and spend on things that are more productive toward long-term peace.”This is a statement of real importance. Such an outlook is a rejection of the “perpetual crisis/perpetual war” outlook of the Bush-Obama Administration, a four-term “war presidency” which was abruptly, unexpectedly ended in 2016. The British were not amused.
It is to stop this new cultural paradigm, pivoted on the Pacific and the potential Four Powers alliance, that British imperial forces have deployed. The 2016 election of President Trump, and his personal friendship with President Xi Jinping and desire to work with President Putin, are an intolerable strategic threat to the eighteenth-century geopolitics of the British empire. They have repeatedly used Russiagate to disrupt the process of deliberation among Presidents Xi, Trump, and Putin, thus increasing the danger of war. Russiagate, in the interest of international security, must be ended by exposing it for the utter fraud that it is.
President Donald Trump has no vested interest in protecting the British “special relationship.” From his second day in office, Trump declared that he would clean out the intelligence agencies. If Trump were to do that, however, the real, tragic history of America’s last 50 years would be exhumed from that swamp. Shining a light into that darkness would illuminate the world. The American people would stop playing Othello to the City of London’s Iago. They would denounce the British “special relationship,” never again to fight imperial wars for the greater glory of the British Empire. They would learn the true story of Vietnam, of Iraq 1991 and Iraq 2003, of Libya 2011, and many other conflicts, special operations, and assassinations. The American people would know the truth, and the truth would set them free.
The current insurrection against the United States Presidency is part of a global strategic battle: will a conspiracy of republican forces overcome the modern day British imperial system, centered in the hot money centers of the City of London and Wall Street, or will the oligarchical system once again triumph, immiserating all but the very wealthy? That is the real issue of the insurrection against the maverick American president being conducted by the London and NATO-centered enforcers of the old world. To paraphrase the American Declaration of Independence,
“The history of the present Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the undermining of the United States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.”
While Robert Mueller found that there was “no collusion” between Donald Trump or the Trump Campaign and Russia, he also filed two indictments regarding alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election. The first alleges that 12 members of Russian Military Intelligence hacked the DNC and John Podesta and delivered the purloined files to WikiLeaks for strategic publication before the July 2016 Democratic National Convention and in October 2016, one month before the election. The second indictment charges the Internet Research Agency, a Russian internet merchandising and marketing firm, with running social media campaigns in the U.S. in 2016 designed to impact the election. When the fuller version of the Mueller report becomes public, it is certain to recharge the claims of Russian interference based on the so-called background “evidence” supporting these indictments.
The good news, however, is that investigations in the United States and Britain, have unearthed significant contrary evidence exposing British Intelligence, NATO, and, to a lesser extent, Ukraine, as the actual foreign actors in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. We provide a short summary of the main aspects of that evidence to spark further investigations of the British intelligence networks, entities, and methods at issue, internationally. More detailed accounts concerning specific aspects of what we recite here can be found on our website.
The Veterans Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, an association of former U.S. intelligence officials, have demonstrated that the Russian hack of the DNC alleged by Robert Mueller, was more likely an internal leak, rather than a hackconducted over the internet. William Binney, who conducted the main investigations for the VIPS, spent 30 years at the National Security Agency, becoming Technical Director. He designed the sorts of NSA programs that would detect a Russian hack if one occurred. Binney conducted an actual forensic examination of the DNC files released by WikiLeaks, and the related files circulated by the persona Guccifer 2.0, who Robert Mueller claims is a GRU creation. Binney has demonstrated that the calculated transfer speeds and metadata characteristics of these files are consistent with downloading to a thumb drive or storage device rather than an internet-based hack. This supports the account by WikiLeaks of how it obtained the files. According to WikiLeaks and former Ambassador Craig Murray, they were obtained from a person who was not a Russian state actor of any kind, in Washington, D.C. WikiLeaks offered to tell the Justice Department all about this, and actual negotiations to this effect were proceeding in early 2017, when Senator Mark Warner and FBI Director James Comey acted to sabotage and end the negotiations.
Further, as opposed to the hyperbole in the media and in Robert Mueller’s indictment, analysis of the Internet Research Agency’s alleged “weaponization” of Facebook in 2016 involved a paltry total of $46,000 in Facebook ads and $4,700 spent on Google platforms. In an election in which the major campaigns spend tens of thousands of dollars every day on these platforms, whatever the IRA thought it was doing in its amateurish and juvenile memes and tropes was like throwing a stone in the ocean. Most of these activities occurred after the election and never mentioned either candidate. The interpretation that these ads were designed to draw clicks and website traffic, rather than influence the election, must be considered.
The “evidence” for Mueller’s GRU hacking indictment was provided, in part, by CrowdStrike, the DNC vendor that originated the claims that the Russians had hacked that entity. CrowdStrike is closely associated with the Atlantic Council’s Digital Research Lab (DRL), an operation jointly funded by NATO’s Strategic Communications Center and the U.S. State Department, to counter Russian “hybrid warfare.” CrowdStrike has been caught more than once falsely attributing hacks to the Russians and the Atlantic Council’s DRL is a font of anti-Russian intelligence operations.
According to CIA Director John Brennan’s Congressional testimony, the British began complaining loudly about candidate Trump and Russia in late 2015. Brennan’s statements were echoed in articles in The Guardian. According to Brennan, intelligence leads about Trump and Russia had been forwarded to Brennan from both British intelligence and from Estonia. The former head of the Russia Desk for MI6 and protégé of Sir Richard Dearlove, Christopher Steele, fresh from working for British Intelligence, the FBI, and U.S. State Department in the 2014 Ukraine coup, assembled in 2016 a phony dossier called Operation Charlemagne, claiming widespread Russian interference in European elections, including in the Brexit vote. By the spring of 2016, Steele was contributing to a British/U.S. intelligence task force on the Trump Campaign which had been convened at CIA headquarters under John Brennan’s direction.
This task force targeted Trump campaign volunteers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos in entrapment operations on British soil, using British agents, during the spring and summer of 2016. The personnel employed in these operations all had multiple connections to the British firm Hakluyt, to Steele’s firm Orbis, and to the British military’s Integrity Initiative. Sometime in the summer of 2016, Robert Hannigan, then head of GCHQ, flew to Washington to brief John Brennan personally. Hannigan abruptly resigned from GCHQ shortly after the election, sparking widespread speculation that the British were making an attempt at damage control.
Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort were already on the radar and under investigation by the same British, Dearlove-centered intelligence network and by Christopher Steele specifically. Flynn had been defamed by Dearlove and Stefan Halper, as a possible Russian agent way back in 2014 because he spoke to Russian researcher Svetlana Lokhova at a dinner sponsored by Dearlove’s Cambridge Security Forum. Or, at least that was the pretext for the targeting of Flynn, who otherwise defied British intelligence by exposing Western support for terrorist operations in Syria and sought a collaborative relationship with Russia to counter ISIS. Manafort was under FBI investigation throughout 2014 and 2015, largely in retaliation for his role in steering the Party of the Regions to political power in Ukraine. In 2016, the Manafort investigation migrated to the Democratic National Committee with direct assistance provided by Ukrainian state intelligence. This effort was led by Alexandra Chalupa, an admirer of Stepan Bandera and other heroes of Nazi history in Ukraine. Chalupa also had deep connections to British-oriented networks at the U.S. State Department.
In or around June 2016, Christopher Steele began writing his dirty and bogus dossier about Trump and Russia. This is the dossier which claimed that Trump was compromised by Putin and that Putin was coordinating with Trump in the 2016 election. The main “legend” of this full-spectrum information warfare operation run from Britain, was that Donald Trump was receiving “dirt” on Hillary Clinton from Russia. The operations targeting Page and Papadopoulos consisted of multiple attempts to plant fabricated evidence on them which would reflect what Steele himself was fabricating in the dirty dossier. At the very same time, the infamous June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower was being set up. That meeting involved the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who, it was alleged in a series of bizarre emails written by British publicist Ron Goldstone to set up the meeting, could deliver “dirt” on Hillary Clinton direct from the Russian government. Veselnitskaya didn’t deliver any such dirt. But the entire operation was being monitored by State Department intelligence agent Kyle Parker, an expert on Russia. Parker’s emails reveal deep ties to the highest levels of British intelligence and much chatter between them about Trump and Russia.
A now-changed version of the website for Christopher Steele’s firm, Orbis, trumpeted an expertise in information warfare operations, and the networks in which Steele runs are deeply integrated into the British military’s Integrity Initiative. The Integrity Initiative is a rapid response propaganda operation using major journalists in the United States and Europe to carry out targeted defamation campaigns. Its central charge, according to documents posted by the hacking group Anonymous, is selling the United States and Western Europe on the immediate need for regime change in Russia, even if that involves war.
Much has been made by Republicans and other lunkheads in the U.S. Congress of Steele’s contacts with Russians for his dossier. They claim that such contacts resulted in a Russian disinformation operation being run through the duped Christopher Steele. Nothing could be further from the truth.
On its face, Steele’s dossier would immediately be recognized as a complete fabrication by any competent intelligence analyst. He cites some 32 sources inside the Russian government for his fabricated claims about Trump. What they allegedly told him is specific enough in time and content to identify them. To believe that the dossier is true or that actual Russians contributed to it, you must also believe that that the British government was willing to roll up this entire network, exposing them, since the intention was for the dossier’s wild claims to be published as widely as possible. By all accounts, Britain and the United States together do not have 32 highly placed sources inside the Russian government, nor would they ever make them public in this way or with this very sloppy tradecraft. Steele’s fabrication also uses aspects of readily available public information, such as the sale of 19% of the energy company Rosneft, (the alleged bribe offered to Carter Page for lifting sanctions) to concoct a fictional narrative of high crimes and misdemeanors.
Other claims in the dossier were published, publicly, in various Ukrainian publications. The famous claim that Trump directed prostitutes to urinate on a bed once slept upon by Barack Obama seems to be plagiarized from similarly fake 2009 British propaganda stories about Silvio Berlusconi spending the night with a prostitute in a hotel room in Rome, “defiling” Putin’s bed. According to various sources in the United States, this outrageous claim was made by Sergei Millian. George Papadopoulos has stated that he believes Millian is an FBI informant, recounting in his book how a friend of Millian’s blurted this out when Millian, Papadopoulos and the friend were having coffee.
The final nail in this case has been provided by The Hill’s John Solomon. He says that Steele told former Associate Attorney General Bruce Ohr about the sources for the dirty dossier. According to Solomon, Ohr’s notes reveal one main source, a former senior Russian intelligence official living in the United States. But, as anyone familiar with the territory would know, there is no such retired senior Russian intelligence official living in the United States whose entire life is not controlled by the CIA.
Despite its obvious fake pedigree, Steele’s dossier was laundered into the Justice Department repeatedly, by the CIA and State Department and the Obama White House. It was used to obtain FISA surveillance warrants turning key members of the Trump Campaign into walking microphones. It was circulated endlessly by the Clinton Campaign to a network of reporters in the U.S. known to serve as scribes for the intelligence community. John Brennan used it to conduct a special emergency briefing of the leading members of the U.S. Congress charged with intelligence responsibilities in August of 2016 and to brief Harry Reid, who was Senate Majority Leader at the time. All of this activity meant that the salacious accusation that Trump was a Putin pawn and the FBI was investigating the matter, leaked out and was used by the Clinton Campaign to defame Trump for its electoral advantage. When Trump won, Steele’s nonsense received the stamp of the U.S. intelligence community and official currency in the campaign to take out the President.
As a result of Congressional investigations of Russiagate, it has become abundantly clear that the British operation against Trump was aided and abetted by the Obama White House, the State Department, the CIA, the FBI, and personalities associated with the National Endowment for Democracy. The individuals involved might be named Veterans of the 2014 Ukrainian Coup, since all of them also worked on this operation. It is no accident that Victoria Nuland, the case agent for the Ukraine coup, played a major role in bolstering Steele’s credentials for the purpose of selling his dirty dossier to the media and to the Justice Department. This went so far as Steele giving a full scale briefing on his fabricated dossier at the State Department in October 2016. Out of the Ukraine coup, an entire military-centered propaganda apparatus arose, first through NATO, and then out from there to military units and diplomatic centers in the U.S., Europe, and Britain, to run low intensity operations, and black propaganda, against Russia. The British end of the operation includes the Integrity Initiative, the 77th Brigade, and NATO’s Strategic Communications Center. In the United States, the Integrity Initiative has been integrated into the Global Engagement Center at the U.S. State Department. Most certainly, this operation is poised again to intervene in the U.S. elections; the British House of Lords have stated explicitly, in their December 2018 report, British Foreign Policy in a Shifting World Order, that Donald Trump must not be re-elected.
This is why the British are yelping that under no circumstances can the classified documents concerning their role in the attempted coup against Donald Trump be declassified. It would end their leverage over the United States and much of Europe. That is why these documents must indeed be declassified, and parallel investigations by citizens and government officials concerned with ending the imperial system, otherwise known as the current “war party,” must begin in earnest.
The above question is not merely a matter of speculation, or of personal opinion, but an existential challenge within the context of universal history. Never in the modern era has the human race been closer to breaking the power of Empire — from the Roman Empire, to the Byzantine, to the Venetian, and to the Anglo-Dutch Empire infecting the world still today. The U.S. President has demonstrated the courage to reject the “special relationship” with the British, and to declare the urgency and the necessity of building friendships with China, Russia, and other great cultures of the world, to end the vile regime-change wars of conquest and destruction, and restore the historic dedication of the nation to scientific and technological advancement of the productive forces, both on Earth and in Space.
And yet, we are also experiencing a chaotic collapse of culture across the trans-Atlantic region, as large portions of the population have succumbed to despair, with suicides and drug addiction striking every community; with youth brainwashed into campaigning against human progress based on pseudo-science predictions of catastrophe and extinction — not from nuclear war, but from progress itself. And the British and their neoconservative assets in the United States are frantically trying to stop President Trump’s effort to build friendships with Russia and China by provoking war — any war, be it in Venezuela, Iran, or the South China Sea — aimed at making nations “take sides,” and at maintaining the imperial divisions of the world.
Lyndon LaRouche warned that this moment would arrive, and that when it did, there must be a leadership available which addressed the whole person, and the whole world. There can be no political and economic solution which does not at the same time address the scientific dimension and the cultural, artistic nature of the creative process in each and every human being. The new Moon-Mars mission announced this month by President Trump and NASA director Bridenstine, to be carried out in full partnership with the other nations of the world, is the model for the scientific unity of effect in the world as a whole, lifting the spirit of every human being to see man in the universe, not bound to the Earth. But the cultural domain has no champion, as yet, other than this Schiller Institute, founded by Lyndon and Helga LaRouche precisely to address this world-historic question. This must be taken up as an equally urgent task by all men and women of good will.
China Daily on Saturday noted that, “With an increasing number of Chinese people, especially youngsters, getting addicted to watching short video clips on their smartphones, reading seems to have become a dying hobby. Books are not only the most powerful source of knowledge, they also open people’s minds to new, innovative ideas and give flight to their imagination.”
And how much worse is this phenomenon in the West, where what is called “entertainment” is dominated by musical and artistic ugliness, violence, and pornography?
The Schiller Institute is sponsoring memorials for Lyndon LaRouche on several continents, with the focus being the aesthetical education of man, the celebration of beauty and genius, both to honor LaRouche, but also to inspire people of all nations and all faiths to join the effort to produce, from this crisis of humanity, a renaissance of the human spirit, dedicated to the scientific and cultural development of all mankind. This is necessary, and it is entirely possible, in this moment of historical decision.
President Donald Trump’s approval rating among the American population has risen as the “Russiagate” coup attempt against him has been discredited; with Attorney General Barr’s delivery of the Mueller Report to Congress expected this week, investigation of the frauds of the “Russiagaters” can take off in earnest. The crucial events go much deeper than that.
The President apparently understands, if he does not yet proclaim it in his own name, what his key supporters know: that the drive to force him out came from British intelligence, because of his intent to turn American policies from geopolitics to economic cooperation and peace. Presidents since Truman, with the brief exceptions of JFK and Ronald Reagan’s SDI, have been under overall British imperial policy control since World War II.
With Trump’s inauguration a battle began to end that dismal reign over the U.S. Presidency, of Churchillian cold wars, regime-change wars and geopolitics. It began immediately with the rush by the Obama holdover intelligence chiefs to trap President Trump in the British intelligence-created “Russiagate.” The battle is still underway and the President could win.
But, it has been necessary from day one that the truth about the much more vicious prosecutorial and propaganda attack on Lyndon LaRouche, by the same British-led forces, had to be clarified — LaRouche exonerated — and his national and international development policies taken up. LaRouche had conducted a nearly 40-year fight for the American Presidency. He repeatedly stood as a candidate but with the broader aim throughout, of representing the real American System and the real American character to many nations, as opposed to the “British imperial” character those nations had seen since the Harry S Truman presidency. By becoming the leading statesman of international development programs and great infrastructure projects for the world, LaRouche was THE hated adversary of the British empire.
A campaign to exonerate LaRouche, gathering support internationally, will accelerate over the next two months leading into an American memorial for him in June, following extraordinary expressions of respect and appreciation for him already from senior South American statesmen in a memorial there last week. Its theme is “the triumph of Lyndon LaRouche.” An exoneration pamphlet is being produced setting forth his legacy.
The LaRouchePAC political organization decided this weekend to organize scores of chapters across the nation at the same time, to enable its leadership to address his many thousands of activists and supporters and recruit them, and new activists, to the exoneration campaign. Its mission is to allow President Trump to act to exonerate LaRouche, and thus defy and break the grip of the British imperial paradigm on the Presidency at last.
The President’s recent Moon-Mars mission decision is recognized as a ground-breaking new potential for American optimism and progress — but also, for scientific and technological cooperation with the other space-faring powers. Trump wanted great-power cooperation with Russia and China, as with India and Japan; “Russiagate” has blocked him; and now waves of anti-China propaganda are coming from the major media; from both political parties; from his own executive.
The Moon-Mars mission is vital. LaRouche’s movement will also be producing materials on the scientific and technological breakthroughs needed, the educational policies, international cooperation, and funding, employing LaRouche’s ideas to answer the question: Can humans return to the Moon in 2024?
This is the way President Trump’s other goal, to build a “shining new infrastructure for America,” can get underway. The attacks on China are an obstacle, and false. The genius of Lyndon and Helga LaRouche has shown that the historic “American System,” and China’s Confucian tradition, are both aspects of the paradigm of human progress which has to end Britain’s imperial paradigm.
The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) released the first-ever image of the environment immediately surrounding a super-massive black hole candidate (located at the center of galaxy M87). This provides the first1 direct visual-observational evidence of the physical existence of an event horizon — a physical boundary condition delineating a mysterious physical regime where the gravitational conditions are so intense even light cannot escape.
These first images of this anomalous physical regime provide a critical reminder to mankind: there is still so much to discover and understand about our Universe, we need to get off this small planet to continue to explore and expand our understanding—and President Trump’s Moon-Mars program provides a historic opportunity to take the next steps in fulfilling our shared, uniquely human destiny.
No one knows what actually happens within these mysterious regimes (beyond the event horizon), but, now, we do know that their existence isn’t mathematical speculation–it is a physical reality. The environment immediately surrounding an event horizon is the most extreme expression of Einstein’s general relativity mankind has ever investigated–with gravitational spacetime conditions so intense light can orbit the event horizon (as if the light were a satellite orbiting a planet). According to the scientists from the National Science Foundation who presented the first EHT images on April 10, the unique characteristics of this environment surrounding the event horizon at the center of M87 correspond beautifully to what was predicted based on Einstein’s theory.
The first EHT images are the product of an incredible international initiative, involving hundreds of scientists, dozens of institutions, and ten radio telescopes across eight sites around the world (connected together to operate as a single dish, through very-long-baseline interferometry). And the EHT is just getting started, additional telescopes are being brought into the project, and the EHT will move into observations at slightly higher radio frequencies–both of which will contribute to sharper images of their two main observational targets, the event horizon at the center of M87, and also the event horizon at the center of our own Galaxy (Sag A*). Additionally, scientists involved are noting that space-based satellites would be the next step, to further increase the potential of the EHT.
These supermassive phenomena at the centers of galaxies represent critical anomalies. Not only is the physical regime beyond the event horizon a mystery, no one exactly sure how or why these supermassive phenomena form at the centers of galaxies. Every galaxy seems to have one, and their mass systematically scales in correspondence with the size of their host galaxy—a relation no one can explain. They can be “active,” becoming the most energetic astronomical phenomena out there–shining brighter than their entire host galaxy, and emitting coherent and structured jets of plasma that can be larger than the galaxy.
The EHT is helping to open the door to many fascinating anomalies, but this is just the beginning. Mankind’s future requires the continued pursuit of these fundamental questions, and this pursuit requires initiatives like President Trump’s Moon-Mars program.
In 1986, Mr. LaRouche addressed this beautifully in his own outline for a 40 year perspective of a Moon-Mars colonization program, “The Science and Technology Needed to Colonize Mars”.
Here is the a full section of that paper, “The Scientific Objectives.”
“The astronomers are the first to tell us why we must go some distance away from Earth’s orbit. The Earth’s atmosphere prevents us from observing the full spectrum of radiation from the stars and galaxies, and we have reached near to the limit of what we can discover about our larger universe by Earth-based observatories. We can do a little better with telescopes and radio telescopes in near-Earth orbit, but for many important measurements, the area in the vicinity of the Earth’s orbit is a very dirty and noisy place. We must be able to measure the full range of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation in space, from the very long wave to the very, very short: from every distant star, galaxy, and other phenomenon to be observed.
“Building observatories as far out as Mars orbit, and beyond, will make young astronomers very happy, but our purpose for spending these many billions of dollars is obviously not merely to give astronomers some special sort of personal pleasure. The point is, with aid of such observatories, our astrophysicists will be able to answer many questions very important for life on Earth, questions which can not be answered without information from such complexes of space-based scientific observatories.
“As physical science progresses, what was accepted as the best physics yesterday seems to break down around the edges. Usually, when this first occurs, the physicists mumble the ugliest curse word in their scientific vocabularies: ‘anomalous.’ At first, they look at the embarrassing experimental results suspiciously, thinking someone must have played a mean prank upon them. Sooner or later, some physicists warn: ‘It’s no good calling these embarrassing experimental results “anomalies.” We have to face scientific facts; there is something wrong with our existing scientific textbooks.’
“The history of ‘anomalies’ is the history of fundamental progress in science. Modern science began with the work of Nicholas of Cusa. In 1440, Cusa published a book, On Learned Ignorance (De Dacia lgnorantia) which accomplished, chiefly, two things. Cusa presented a discovery which modern science calls the Principle of Least Action, and which mathematicians refer to as the isoperimetric theorem. Cusa proved that geometry, as then taught, contained a fundamental error, and that this error had a bad effect on our thinking about physics. In the same book, Cusa presented a way of thinking about physics which set the stage for the later work of such leading figures as Leonardo da Vinci, Kepler, and Leibniz. Every step of fundamental progress in experimental science since has centered around discovering mistakes, called ‘anomalies,’ in generally accepted scientific doctrines.
“By about the middle of the 19th century, with the work of Karl Gauss and his collaborators, science developed a more effective way of looking at this problem of ‘anomalies.’ It was established as a rule, that to settle any fundamental principle of physics, we must move away from the everyday scale of experimental work, and study the way in which the universe behaves at its extremes, the very, very large and the very, very small. In other words, we can not say that any physics principle is true experimentally, until we have proven that principle by means of astronomical observations and also on the size-scale of molecules, atoms, and subatomic behavior.
“It has also been recognized, off and on, since the work of Leonardo da Vinci, that we must also prove principles of nature in a third region of physical experiments and observation: living processes. Today’s progress in optical biophysics is reminding us of that, once more.
“In brief: The practical importance of astrophysics for life on Earth is that without the special kind of knowledge of laws of the universe we gain from astrophysics, we are blocked in scientific progress on the scale of everyday practice. Astrophysics, microphysics, and optical biophysics, are the frontiers of all scientific progress on Earth today.
“To explore the behavior of the stars and galaxies, we must measure the full range of radiation from those sources. We must measure not only the visible light, but also microwaves and radio frequencies, the very large infrared spectrum, the ultraviolet, the X-ray region, and so forth. The farther from the Sun we make those observations, the better. What we are searching for is “anomalies” in our present textbooks’ physics. We are searching for the kind of evidence, which compared with work in microphysics and optical biophysics, will enable us not only to uncover those ‘anomalies,’ but to solve them.
“The rate at which science progresses on the surface of the Earth depends very much on these kinds of coordinated investigations.
“A considerable amount of benefit can be gained from unmanned observational stations placed in various locations around our solar system. More and more, we are faced with the fact that there must also be manned laboratories and manned observatories in space, as well.
“So far, most of our space exploration has been based on these kinds of objectives. This will continue to be a large part of man’s work and life in space for the foreseeable decades ahead.
“Once we move to place observatories and space laboratories at interplanetary distances, the idea of permanent colonies in space pops up. Once we think of putting a few dozen scientists and technicians at interplanetary distances, we are already raising the question of space colonization.
“The logic of the problem is simple enough. To support a few dozen scientists and technicians in the ‘front line’ missions of research in space, we must have a much larger number of people there to maintain the life-support systems on which those scientists and technicians depend. As soon as one has sketched the table of organization for the persons necessary simply to maintain those life-support systems, we realize that once we have decided to put a few dozen scientists and technicians into front-line space missions, we might as well put a few hundred such scientists and technicians out there. The size of the life-support staff needed to sustain a few dozen scientists, would actually support hundreds with relatively little more effort.
“Once we have decided to put observatories and laboratories a significant part of the distance toward Mars-orbit, we see it is much better to go all the distance, and take advantage of the fact that Mars is the most convenient place to establish a logistical base for the more remote stations.
“Once that point is settled in our minds, we must estimate the minimum population on Mars necessary to maintain all functions indispensable to life support on that planet. Even with continued logistical support from the industrial base on the Moon, we are in the range of a city-sized population in our initial Mars colony. We must stop thinking in terms of the word base, as we might say ‘Antarctica base’; the word we must use i s permanent colony, a chiefly self-sustaining, permanent colony on Mars.
“We might look at the project in this way. Think of it as recruiting several thousand scientists, and supporting research technicians, to staff the major U.S. laboratory in space research. However, instead of establishing this university-like research center in the middle of Arizona, we place it on Mars . To provide the goods and services the scientific teams and their families require, we develop a small city around the research center, analogous to the case of Los Alamos.
“This population is composed of human beings, not robots, and also not fellows clomping around in space suits in some Hollywood science fiction sort of space opera. Without a human ecosystem, many of them would go mad, or nearly so. Building an atmosphere on Mars so that the colonists could bicycle or hitchhike around the planet’s highways, might be a bit far fetched for the foreseeable future; cities and farms in Earth like artificial environments, under large domes, is the more likely prospect for the foreseeable future. With in such domes, human activity and environment must be as Earthlike as possible. Think of a similar center placed in the middle of the Sahara Desert: pretty bleak and unlivable outside the oasis under the air conditioned dome.”
