Great Power Cooperation To Return to Westphalian Principles

The ongoing United Nations General Assembly in New York City is becoming an important forum for thrashing out the crucial ideas of statecraft needed to put an end to the era of British geopolitics and globaloney, and, above all, to define the principles of physical economy required for mankind’s survival.

Not least of which is the crucial input of the LaRouche movement—both in the streets outside the UN and among the delegations on the inside—of LaRouche’s science of physical economy and his call for the creation of a New Bretton Woods through the bankruptcy reorganization of the currently dying system.

As part of this discussion process, the semi-official Global Times yesterday editorialized on Trump’s speech to the UN General Assembly, praising his defense of national sovereignty but adding that this has to go hand in hand with equality among sovereign Nation-states. “Historically, the concept of sovereignty and equality among nations was born at the same time in the Peace of Westphalia, a peace treaty that first introduced and assured the equality of national sovereignty,” the editorial noted.

Another editorial in the Chinese media, this one in China Daily, spoke to the urgency of the U.S. and China cooperating on shaping a win-win future for all mankind, and stressed that the real danger of “tit-for-tat” trade sanctions and other conflicts is not the specifics of each issue, but “the accelerating drain on mutual goodwill” that they are causing. This is a point that Helga Zepp-LaRouche has repeatedly emphasized regarding US-China relations: that the close working relationship forged by Trump and Xi Jinping is of crucial importance to solve the strategic crisis, and that both sides must fight to preserve it—especially with Trump in the cross-hairs of an ongoing attempted British coup d’etat.

Zepp-LaRouche also emphasized today, in her weekly German-language webcast, that the most dangerous Achilles Heel of the entire strategic situation remains the bankruptcy of the derivatives-sodden trans-Atlantic financial system, which could implode at any time. It is therefore all the more urgent, she stressed, to make sure that leaders in every nation understand that real wealth is not the stock market or other financial instruments, but rather that real physical-economic wealth is created through the creative powers of the human mind, in a fashion uniquely explained by Lyndon LaRouche.

Trump at the UN — The Institutions Have Failed, We Must Make All Nations Great Again

President Donald Trump, speaking at the UN General Assembly yesterday, after taking credit for the accomplishments of his first two years — especially the expansion of production and job creation in the U.S. — then expanded his “Make America Great Again” slogan, emphasizing repeatedly the crucial importance of the culture and values of each and every nation in bringing about peace and development internationally. As he said in regard to the horror of the drug gangs and human traffickers in Ibero-America: “Ultimately, the only long-term solution to the migration crisis is to help people build more hopeful futures in their home countries. Make their countries great again!”

For over 50 years, Lyndon LaRouche has identified the crisis facing mankind in the 20th Century, and still today, as the existence of the legacy imperial institutions, set up and run by (and for the benefit of) the British Empire and its financial institutions. This includes the wretched WTO, enforcing “free trade” policies which function to keep the former colonized nation in perpetual poverty, never achieving industrialization. It includes such imperial courts as the International Criminal Court (ICC), used exclusively to punish African and other developing nation leaders who refuse to follow the dictates of their former colonial lords. It includes many of the agencies of the UN itself, parading as “human rights” enforcers, but actually used to justify economic and military interventions against sovereign states, under the imperial “responsibility to protect” doctrine of Tony Blair.

After 16 years of Bush and Obama subservience to London, there is finally a President who has the courage to take on those institutions, and to insist that mankind can do better. Just as President Trump has stuck to his insistence that the U.S. should be friends with Russia, so also his open rejection of the British “globalization” hoax, designed to sustain the Empire, has enraged the British and their assets in the U.S. who are running the British coup attempt against the President. Their panic is clear, as the overt role of the British in that coup attempt, identified by LaRouche and {EIR} from the beginning, can no longer be hidden. George Papadopoulos, one of Mueller’s targets, just last week blew the whistle on the British and their “Five Eyes” control over the set up of Trump. On Monday, former U.S. Attorney for Washington, D.C., Joseph diGenova, said on WMAL radio that “the U.K. is at the center of the conspiracy to frame Donald Trump and Carter Page and George Papadopoulos,” pointing to both MI6 and GCHQ, which he identified as “the head intelligence operation out of the U.K.”

Trump has pointedly rejected the free trade pacts, the “global warming” hoax, the ICC, the “human rights” mafia, and the “East versus West” imperial divide — all created by the Empire to impose the dictates of the City of London and Wall Street over the rights of sovereign nation states. Defending these rights, which were the fruit of the Peace of Westphalia and the European Renaissance, requires the final end to Empire, and to the geopolitical thinking behind it.

The LaRouche Political Action Committee yesterday held a rally at the UN, welcoming delegates from around the world with a beautiful poster reading, “Blessed Are the Peace Makers,” with pictures of Trump shaking hands with Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, and Kim Jong-Un. In his speech, Trump denounced Iran, claiming that they were sponsors of terror and were suppressing their own people. It should be recalled that in his speech last year at the same UN event, Trump railed at “Rocket Man” Kim Jong-Un as a threat to humanity. This is Trump’s style. In a tweet yesterday, he said that Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani had not accepted his invitation to meet, but that, “Maybe someday in the future — I am sure he is an absolutely lovely man.” President Rouhani, on his side, said in his speech that dialogue is possible and necessary, while also denouncing Trump’s rejection of the JCPOA. Such a dialogue is necessary if the festering crisis across the so-called Mideast is to be resolved — not piece by piece, but comprehensively, with the Syrian crisis and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict included. This would deprive the British of their primary “cockpit for war,” just as the Korean peace process has foiled imperial efforts to force Asian nations, and others, to “take sides,” rather than to join together in the Spirit of the New Silk Road.

The LaRouchePAC rally also distributed the petition: “The Leaders of the United States, Russia, China and India Must Create a New Bretton Woods!”The petition identifies the pending explosion of the financial bubble in the West, as well as the growing panic in Europe as the EU itself is falling apart. Trump continues to conflate the stock market with the real economy, which will come back to haunt him, especially if the stock market bubble explodes before the crucial midterm elections — a danger that the British might decide to provoke for exactly that reason. It could be resolved if Trump were to act now, with the other nations of the “Four Powers” and others that choose to participate, to convene a New Bretton Woods conference, to implement the necessary international reorganization of the financial system along Hamiltonian lines, as presented in LaRouche’s proposed Four Laws.

Sign the Schiller Institute’s Petition – LaRouchePAC Greets Trump at the UN

The Schiller Institute’s international call for a New Bretton Woods, with 50 of the more prominent of its thousands of signers, is circulating today at the opening of the United Nations General Assembly; will circulate through the U.S. Congress this week, and is going out internationally. Helga Zepp-LaRouche stressed today that it is the only effective antidote to the British monetarist regime, marked by deeply unpopular and tottering governments, trying to issue orders to governments with broad popular support, which are moving to work with China on the Belt and Road and with Russia.

This mobilization is led as well by the independent campaign of Kesha Rogers in Texas’s 9th C.D. backed by LaRouchePAC — uniquely led, because Rogers has spelled out the program for a North American Belt and Road Initiative and North American Infrastructure Investment Bank; and because she can defeat Rep. Al Green, who leads the Democratic Congressional impeachment circus. All those who want to defend the Presidency should be supporting Rogers’ campaign against “Impeachment Al” in any way they can, while helping to push the leaders of Russia, China, and India and Donald Trump Into the formation of a New Bretton Woods monetary system to replace the present globalism speculative casino which has robbed the entire world. Seventy-five years ago Canadian economist Robert Bryce observed, of the Franklin Roosevelt Administration’s moves to create a new post-War Bretton Woods monetary system and to develop the economies of nations such as China:

“This looks to be the opening for that New Imperialism which one hears about these days — a benevolent, liberal and far-sighted, if not actually socialist, imperialism — a TVA imperialism. The new imperialists would have as objectives, not a high return on capital, but rather a flourishing trade built up on the basis that would be created by the rising standard of living in the capital-importing country. More distant objectives would be the peace and strategic security for the lending country, achieved not so much through political influence, as through the political stability that a prosperous trade and progressive economic and social development would ensure in the borrowing country.”

Since today this rather precisely describes — not U.S. policy or British “public-private partnerships” — but rather, China’s new paradigm of the Belt and Road Initiative, all the attacks from American and European neo-Cons and Keynesians claiming China is “imperialist,” practicing “debt-trap diplomacy,” and so on, should be dismissed for the garbage they are. These are fearful squawkings of those who, having done away with bank regulation, let the global crash of 2008 come on, and who are complicit in the greater crash coming on now.

If the globally admired model of the Tennessee Valley Authority, and its deliberate recreations in China’s Three Gorges Dam, its water-transfer projects and high-speed rails, its elimination of rural poverty — if those are imperalist, that is the imperialism we need, as it was in FDR’s Good Neighbor and anti-colonial economic policies.

The real question is whether the leaders of the United States, Russia, India, necessarily taking the point for other very qualified nations, will join with the President of China in launching a new Bretton Woods monetary system, for the purposes President Roosevelt saw in the original. The Belt and Road Initiative has already provided a launchpad for that policy — capital and credit flowing from “volcanoes” of economic and technological productivity, to developing nations, and flows of speculative capital being deliberately suppressed in the process.

Washington Media Circus in Overdrive: Rosenstein Remains At Least Until Thursday

The national news media went wild on Monday morning, reporting that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was on his way to the White House to meet with Chief of Staff John Kelly to either resign or be fired. The drama unfolded over a New York Times story leaked late Friday afternoon which had Rosenstein, the man in charge of the illicit Robert Mueller Special Counsel investigation against Trump, arguing that the 25th Amendment should be invoked to remove Trump from office, and offering to wear a wire to gather dirt on the President. The meetings in which these statements were made occurred shortly after the May, 2017 firing of FBI Director James Comey by the President. While it is a very short distance from the Justice Department, on Pennsylvania Avenue, to the White House, media reports about Rosenstein being on his way to a dramatic confrontation lasted for some hours. Finally, White House Press Secretary Sara Sanders read an official statement, saying that, “At the request of the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, he and President Trump had an extended conversation to discuss the recent news stories. Because the President is at the United Nations General Assembly and has a full schedule with leaders from around the world, they will meet on Thursday when the President returns to Washington, D.C.” This did not prevent Democrats from going wild and declaring that Trump was engaged in a “slow moving” Saturday night massacre like President Richard Nixon’s firings of DOJ officials.

In comments to the press after his meeting with President Moon of South Korea in New York, President Trump stressed that he had spoken with “Rod” Monday and that he would be meeting with him on Thursday and that he, Donald Trump, wanted to have “complete transparency” about the matter.

There are several overlapping dynamics at work here:

1. It is clear that Rosenstein attended a meeting of top FBI and DOJ officials in March of 2017 in which invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Donald Trump from office and wearing wires to set the President up was discussed. The Times story asserts that Rosenstein advocated this course of action. Rosenstein denies this. His denial, however, really does not matter because he never reported these treasonous conversations, acting instead, in the wake of the firing FBI Director James Comey by Donald Trump, to appoint Robert Mueller to conduct an unprecedented and ultra vires counterintelligence investigation of the President of the United States. As Alan Dershowitz has repeatedly pointed out in the last 24 hours, invoking the 25th Amendment in these circumstances amounts to declaring a coup d’etat in the United States. Nothing less is implicated by the New York Times story. According to several reports, Rosenstein concluded after the New York Times story came out, that he could not testify to Congress about these meetings and keep his job, offering his resignation on Friday. There is now a widespread recognition that there is an ongoing coup against the President which threatens the governability of the United States itself. Senator Lindsay Graham, speaking on multiple media channels Sunday, called it a “bureaucratic coup d’etat.” Many Republican stalwarts and the President’s attorneys also recognize that Robert Mueller is a legal assassin, not the embodiment of legal rectitude as portrayed by Washington D.C.’s best PR shops.

2. The British are screaming about Trump’s September 17th declassification order regarding several foundational documents central to the coup and exposing the British hand in the matter. Trump’s declassification order came in the week when George Papadopoulos began talking about the CIA and British efforts to entrap him and fabricate evidence against the Trump campaign, efforts which provided the pretext for the FBI’s unprecedented and completely unfounded counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign. Rosenstein went to the White House on Friday of last week to urge the President to hold off from immediate declassification based on objections from Britain and Australia. The President agreed to have Michael Horowitz, the Department of Justice Inspector General, review the documents but stated that he expected that review to be expedited and that speed was very important to him. In an interview on WMAL radio Monday morning, former Washington D.C. U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova said, “”The UK is at the center of a conspiracy to frame Donald Trump and Carter Page, and George Papadopoulos. This is all about Mifsud, and protecting Halper, and Alexander Downer. Downer is a big fish. And all of the work that all of them did with GCHQ…. This is a huge, huge problem for the UK. They may ultimately say, `Look, you can talk about Steele, but please don’t talk about Alexander Downer.” They are very worried about the role that Downer played in this.” Pat Buchanan noted yesterday that the integrity of the American republic is far more important than the embarrassment of the British in this affair. Buchanan cited a Wall Street Journal piece to the same effect.

3. There is a sitting grand jury in Washington D.C. which has begun to hear evidence about the crimes implicit in the coup against Donald Trump. The initial focus is on former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe who is under investigation for lying about media leaks. McCabe’s memos are the source of the New York Times leak about Rosenstein’s perfidies. It is clear that McCabe is intent on bringing down his co-conspirators and those he thinks hung him out to dry in order to save himself.

The remedies lie, as Alan Dershowitz has said, in getting everyone involved in the March, 2017 meetings involving Rosenstein, under oath about what happened there, and doing so, in whatever forum, urgently and quickly. The American public needs to know this now, and urgently. The President is right. This needs to be completely transparent. In addition, the documents the President ordered released on September 17th must be released now and the British government should be forced to detail its role in the coup and the reasons for its extraordinary actions and everyone involved in them. That is the only basis for assessing any relationship the British will have in the future with the United States.

LaRouche and the Battle for the American Presidency



In her remarks to the Sept. 22 weekly Manhattan Project meeting, Barbara Boyd referred to the implications of President Trump’s announcement that he intends to declassify the crucial documents related to the ongoing attempted coup d’etat against his Presidency:

“If this stuff comes out and is understood in all its implications by the American people, the coup is over. The people will fully understand that a foreign power, the British, acting in a conspiracy with a sitting President, Barack Obama, fabricated evidence against the President’s political rival, a candidate for President of the United States: Donald Trump….

When these documents come out, people will go to jail. The entirety of the corporate news media will go belly up. The professional class will have to just `shut up’ and re-educate themselves about our Constitutional and fundamental human values.

“And, I might add, Lyndon LaRouche will be exonerated. That is, if, and only if, this organization tells the story. Because we are really the only ones who can get this right, based on the vast library of knowledge Lyn has bequeathed to us to get this exactly right.

“Like Trump, the British demanded LaRouche’s head. Like Trump, they proceeded under a `counterintelligence’ secret rubric to surveil and fabricate evidence. In LaRouche’s case, it was not under FISA, but under Executive Order 12333. Like Trump, they proceeded with a blunderbuss and illegal prosecution in which extant legal rules and precedents were completely abandoned; and associates of LaRouche stared at jail sentences lasting decades if they stuck with him and refused to become a Judas. The President has it somewhat right when he describes himself as a `stable genius.’ That is, an agent of fundamental change. That is the type of person the British and their imperial predecessors target for absolute destruction.

“LaRouche, of course, is a much better and more able stable genius because he acted to constantly expand his field of knowledge; he was driven to make breakthrough after breakthrough in knowledge of the human mind and the physical universe; he acted on the principle of constant and progressive change; the enemy of any fixed social arrangement such as the present British Empire.”

Key among those breakthroughs, stands LaRouche’s critical policy for a New Bretton Woods—the bankruptcy reorganization of the trans-Atlantic financial system, and its replacement with a new credit system designed to foster science-driven fundamental economic advance—and to bring this into being in concert with other like-minded nations, led by such great powers as China, Russia and India. Its urgency is great: the world financial system now teeters at the brink of a new blowout, far more devastating than that of 2008.

That is the central policy issue on the agenda for the U.S. mid-term elections.

Manhattan Town Hall with Jason Ross and Barbara Boyd

Jason Ross and Barbara Boyd address the real target of the ongoing coup against President Trump: how you, the population, thinks. Fortunately, Lyndon LaRouche’s discovery and lifelong work provides the most powerful weapon to avoid the trap of the British Empire’s efforts to control your thinking. Likewise, his discovery is the key to provoking the citizens of the U.S. to restore our commitment to scientific, cultural and economic progress.
