Obama's Opium War on America

October 28, 2016

Every one of President Obama's signature programs, starting with Obamacare, has brought nothing but death, destruction and economic ruin to the American people. Today, Obamacare is totally collapsing, as millions of working families, living just above the poverty level, are facing premium hikes of 60-70 percent a year, as coverage shrinks. The so-called millions of Americans, who Obama boasts now, for the first time, have health insurance, are mostly people whose earnings have collapsed to the point that they qualify for Medicaid, the health care program for people living at the poverty level—or who are living slightly above the poverty level and qualify for subsidies. For everyone else, Obamacare is a ticket to reduced medical care, potential early death and impoverishment.

People are dying needlessly because of Obama's so-called health care reforms, which were written by and for the insurance companies, who are now themselves fleeing from the Obamacare insurance pools because the program is collapsing and the reimbursements are shrinking.

President Obama's drug enforcement policies, which he got from George Soros and ultimately, from the British Crown, are as murderous, if not worse. The United States has been experiencing an epidemic of opioid addiction and overdose deaths since Obama came into office. In the past week, the {Washington Post} has been reporting on the fact that the Obama Administration, through the Department of Justice, effectively shut down all drug enforcement programs aimed at the major pharmaceutical companies and drug distributors that were cranking out highly addictive opioids and flooding them directly onto the black market, often through unregulated online pharmacies. According to the {Post} account, there were 249 million prescriptions for opioids written in 2015, and overdose deaths have been growing at an annual rate of 15 percent. From 2007 to 2014, deaths due to opioid overdose have tripled in the United States.

Remember President Obama's 2008 campaign promise that he “owned” the Afghanistan war? The US and NATO are still occupying Afghanistan on behalf of the British Crown, eight years later, while the Taliban, ISIS and the Haqqani network are controlling more and more territory with opium production through the roof. According to a report issued on October 23 from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, opium production this year is up by 43%, to over 4,800 tons, and eradication has been all-but shut down entirely. Afghanistan today produces over 90% of the world’s heroin supply, increasing four-fold from before U.S. occupation!

Officially, the amount of opium captured or eradicated is down by 91 percent over the past year. No wonder, throughout the United States, opioid addicts who can no longer afford prescription OxyContin can buy heroin on the street for a quarter of the price.

Obama is playing a leading role in a new Opium War against the United States, which is ultimately being run out of London.

It is no wonder that Colombian President Santos, who just suffered a humiliating defeat when the Colombian people rejected his rotten amnesty deal with the narco-terrorist FARC guerrillas, is soon to travel to Buckingham Palace, to confer with the British Royals on how to salvage the FARC deal. For the past several years, in anticipation of the amnesty, coca production in the FARC-controlled region of southern Colombia has also skyrocketed.

You cannot possibly consider the consequences of having tolerated eight years of the Obama presidency without adding up this body count. For every innocent person killed abroad by Obama's drone wars, overseen personally by President Obama through his regular Tuesday "kill sessions" at the White House, how many Americans have died as the direct consequence of the Obamacare fraud and the flooding of the country with illicit drugs?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

SUPPORTING MATERIAL


ObamaNation: Drugs, Wars, and Wall St.

Obama is exposed and isolated internationally, and he is finished politically. With a psychopath like Obama, created and deployed by the British Crown, this means even more danger, his only option—other than resigning—to launch war on Russia and China, a war that would certainly mean the nuclear extermination of much of the human race.

On Friday, Oct. 21, Obama and Defense Secretary “Nuclear” Ash Carter sent a guided-missile destroyer through Chinese waters, unannounced, near China's Xisha (Paracel) islands in the South China Sea. China Daily, a voice of the Chinese leadership wrote an editorial which notes that the Philippines, under their new President Duterte, has rejected the Obama war policy—as well as Obama’s drug culture—in favor of cooperation in development with China, Russia, and others. By deploying the destroyer, breaching both Chinese and international law, the editorial makes clear that Obama is “telling the world that it can tolerate neither a tranquil South China Sea, nor a peaceful and stable Asia-Pacific. Since it cannot find a puppet troublemaker any longer, the exasperated Washington has to create a disturbance by itself.”

While the whole world watches the strategic failures of Obama's war policy, the economic collapse created by Obama's pro-Wall St. policy is the second trumpet announcing Obama's irreversible political doom, and that of his clone Hillary Clinton. The crash of the Western financial system will hit at any point, now, before or after the election, and simply ignoring the demise of Deutsche Bank, the unraveling of the Italian banking system, the systemic fraud of Wells Fargo among many others, the chaos in Europe, etc., will not prevent the collapse of Wall St. and London banks literally overnight!

Obama’s satanic and simplistic universe can no longer be maintained by his controllers. In a panic to salvage his messianic mass killer legacy, we are being pushed to start a war before he leaves office, or even before Election Day Nov. 8—in Syria, Ukraine, or perhaps Korea, any one of which would mean war with Russia and China.

Why Russia and China?

The target is not the mythical aggression by Russia or China, but precisely the opposite—the commitment to development throughout Eurasia that has been set into motion by China and Russia, bringing nations across the developing sector into cooperation in China's win-win Silk Road development. This reaches into the heart of Europe, offering European nations an alternative to NATO's wars and destruction.

To further this process, the Schiller Institute recently held two conferences, one in Essen, Germany, and the other in Lyon, France. The purpose, as stated by Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche, is to bring Germany and France back to the de Gaulle-Adenauer tradition through cooperation with Russia and China. Essen and Lyon are key European points on China's Silk Road rail lines, now serving to expand East-West trade and cooperation. The conference’s featured speakers from China, the Mideast, and across Europe, assembled on the urgency of global cooperation to restore the European and world economy. Chinese songs and Schubert Lieder, both sung by a Chinese bel canto singer, and both accompanied by classical Chinese instruments, set the tone for the sharing of culture through the Silk Road process.

The same process is taking place in Manhattan, through Lyndon LaRouche's Manhattan Project, bringing nations together to confront together the world-historic task facing the human race today—either cooperate to build the world and crush the terrorist scourge, or descent into global war under the would-be new imperial lords of the Earth.

Obama and his British controllers are weak and exposed—it is time to push them out!



Obama Ridiculed

With his recent visit to China, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has completed a dramatic revolution in the world on behalf of his nation. In very clear language, he has renounced the Philippines' previous subservience to Obama’s war policy, established a new relationship with China and Xi Jinping's Silk Road process, and put in place extensive cooperation with China, and potentially also Russia, in both economic and strategic matters.

Speaking at the Philippine-China Trade and Investment Forum in the Great Hall of the people in Beijing, Duterte said:

"America has lost now. I've realigned myself in your ideological flow, and maybe I will also go to Russia to talk to Putin and tell him that there are three of us against the world—China, Philippines, and Russia. It's the only way.

"With that, in this venue, your honors, in this venue, I announce my separation from the United States. Not only military, not in social, but in economics also… I have separated from them. So I will be dependent on you for a long time. But do not worry. We will also help as you help us."

Speaking to a Filipino audience in Beijing (there are over 300,000 Filipinos working in China), Duterte said about the U.S.:

“Goodbye, my friend. Your stay in my country was for your benefit. We were fed with lies about China. We grew up with the Red Scare. We kept a distance from China. They characterized communism as an oppression of their people. Now I said, this has to stop because you have been abusing the courtesy of my country."

"I will not go to America anymore," he said. "I will just be insulted there." He noted that Americans "enter the Philippines visa-free," while Filipinos have great difficulty getting a visa to the U.S. "Why don't we make it even? Well, there will always be a time for reckoning," he added.

On the war on drugs, where over 4 million Filipinos, mostly young, are addicted to narcotics, Duterte said of Obama's attacks: "What is that compared to the shattered nations of the Middle East? Those which they bombed? At least here, it's the criminals, drug addicts, drug lords who are being killed. Over there, they would bomb a hospital, a nursery. We pale in comparison with their atrocities."



China Leads Mission for Mankind

Under President Xi Jinping, China has committed to become a society where scientific breakthroughs and advancements in new technology are the driving force for economic development. The Chinese Space Program is breaking new ground yearly, carrying out missions that no other nation has ever before attempted, and setting a long-term program in place that will transform China, as well as all of mankind. China is inspiring the world and giving a new vision to the future of mankind in the exploration of space.

In preparation for long-term human exploration space activities, China's second female astronaut, Wang Yaping, taught a series of science lessons to 60 million Chinese students in a live broadcast from low Earth orbit, inspiring hundreds of millions of future scientists just in China alone to fulfill this vision of mankind!

China's sixth manned mission, which just launched and is designated Shenzhou-11, has a crew of two carrying out a one-month program of living in space inside the small Tiangong-2 orbiting module. The purpose of the Shenzhou-11 mission is to lay the basis for China's full-sized space station. The launch of this space station will begin in 2018. For comparison, the International Space Station is likely to be retired in 2024, leaving China with the only space station in Earth orbit, and the U.S. will have zero participation! In contrast, China has already invited foreign astronauts to visit its station, and astronauts in Europe are learning Chinese.

China is developing a space station to prepare for deep space travel in the future. To carry out this program, China will also have to advance to the next level of its space launch capability. Its highly successful Long March 2 family of vehicles will be superseded by an entirely new generation of rockets. The job of delivering 20-ton space station components to orbit in 2018 will require operation of the 25-ton-capable Long March 5, which will soon be flight tested. The Long March 5 will also be used for future unmanned missions to the Moon and the planned 2020 robotic mission to Mars. For manned lunar missions, the Long March 9 is under development, a Saturn V-class rocket with 100-ton capacity, which would also be deployed to bring back samples from Mars.

Our Moon

Over the past decade four Chinese lunar missions have been carried out in preparation to bring Chinese taikonauts to the Moon. The goal is not to plant a flag, declare victory, and then leave forever—which was not the goal of President Kennedy's Apollo program either—but to fulfill and sustain the unique mission of mankind to explore the universe.

China carried out its first Moon mission in 2007, delivering the Chang'e-1 spacecraft to lunar orbit. In 2010, a second orbiter carried out high-resolution mapping of the lunar surface to prepare for the 2013 Chang'e-3 lander and rover. The 300-pound Yutu rover, which captured the imagination of people in China and around the world, took the first-ever radar soundings under the lunar surface.

Next year's Chang'e-5 mission to return samples to Earth poses many challenges. It requires landing a craft, collecting samples, storing them in an hermetically sealed container, blasting the capsule off the Moon, linking the small capsule up with a ship in lunar orbit, heading back to Earth, and dropping the capsule through the atmosphere to land intact.

The Far Side of the Moon

And, China's State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (SASTIND) just announced a new, comprehensive 20-year strategy for lunar and planetary exploration.

As of now, there is only one nation that has barred cooperation with China, and that is the United States. Ultimately, the U.S. can decide to join in, or be left behind. Either way, mankind is going up!



Obama’s Police State vs. NASA’s Mission for Mankind

On October 16, a Chinese Long March 2F rocket boosted two astronauts, or “taikonauts,” into orbit for a planned month-long stay aboard the Tiangong-2, or the Heavenly Palace-2, space station module. Tiangong-2 is China’s second experimental space station module, an upgraded habitat with improved life support systems, power, communications and research equipment. China is preparing to build a permanent new space station, to be completed by 2022.

The exciting reality is that China is now leading and inspiring the world with its scientifically groundbreaking science initiatives. This includes the first quantum satellite, mankind’s return to the surface of the moon in 2013, the most advanced fusion energy experiment, and China’s 2018-2019 project for mankind’s first rover investigation— including sample retrieval and return—of the far side of the moon. China along with Russia and India are publicly offering cooperation with every nation, and most of the nations of this world are responding in kind. It is infectious, as President John F. Kennedy fully understood.

Instead, in the U.S., we are treated to the endless blare of supposed Russian hackers and tabloid reports of Chinese spies, while Obama single handedly dismantled the U.S. space program, with a little help from people like Texas Republican Congressman John Culberson. Culberson handles the subcommittee on NASA as well as the FBI, and continues to ban U.S. collaboration with China on manned-space exploration projects. Such actions not only restrict human advancement, but are part of an ongoing drive by Obama and his British sponsors for world war with China and Russia.

On the cuts to the NASA Constellation Program alone, Obama deserved immediate impeachment. It is clear that Obama, and Congressmen like Culberson, along with the operations of groupings such as the FBI represent a British-treason operation against the development of our nation’s future.

Subverting Science

The FBI—the investigative arm of the Department of Justice—has shown again and again its hostility to American advances in science and technology. It attempted to strip Albert Einstein of his American citizenship. It attempted to frame-up the very competent NASA Administrator James Beggs, and eventually succeeded in forcing his resignation, with disastrous results for American science. In the 1980s, the Bureau went after Lyndon LaRouche and put an end to the Strategic Defense Initiative, a program based on U.S.-Soviet scientific cooperation to implement new physical principles, and, eventually, sent LaRouche unjustly to prison. It is the FBI—in connivance with the Obama administration and media outlets—which dominate the surveillance police state otherwise known as the 2016 national election—all while threatening a race to thermonuclear war with Russia and China, rather than a race to the moon.

Under FBI dominance and with the death of President Franklin Roosevelt, followed later by the targeted assassination of President Kennedy, the United States has had no higher mission, and currently has no effective space program to speak of. No plan to return to the Moon, not even a manned rocket program to get to the space station. We cannot get reliably beyond Low Earth Orbit—except with Russia’s help.

John F. Kennedy’s Speech to the United Nations

Recall President Kennedy’s September 20, 1963 speech to the United Nations, only months after the Cuban Missile Crisis, and just two months before his assassination:

“Finally, in a field where the United States and the Soviet Union have a special capacity—in the field of space—there is room for new cooperation, for further joint efforts in the regulation and exploration of space. I include among these possibilities a joint expedition to the moon… Why, therefore, should man’s first flight to the moon be a matter of national competition? Why should the United States and the Soviet Union, in preparation for such expeditions, become involved in immense duplications of research, construction, and expenditure? Surely we should explore whether the scientist and astronauts of our two countries—indeed of all the world—cannot work together in the conquest of space, sending someday in this decade to the moon not the representatives of a single nation, but the representatives of all of our countries.”

President Kennedy proposed then what China proposes today!

The Case of Albert Einstein

During the Truman/McCarthy Red Scares, Albert Einstein stepped forward against the lies. Below is an excerpt of a letter from Einstein, originally a personal letter of advice to a targeted high-school English teacher in Brooklyn, William Frauenglass. The two of them then jointly submitted that letter to the New York Times:

“Reactionary politicians have managed to instill suspicion of all intellectual efforts into the public by dangling before their eyes a danger from without. Having succeeded so far, they are now proceeding to suppress the freedom of teaching and deprive of their positions all those who do not prove submissive, i.e., to starve them out…”

Albert Einstein’s letter, which reveals the moral strength of character required of great scientists, calls upon fellow intellectuals to act in, “the revolutionary way of non-cooperation in the sense of Gandhi’s. Every intellectual who is called before the committees out to refuse to testify, i.e., must be prepared for jail and economic ruin, in short, for the sacrifice of his personal welfare in the interest of the cultural welfare of this country…”

The letter appeared on the front page of the New York Times, June 12, 1953.

Not surprisingly, J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI had been targeting the world’s greatest living scientific genius since 1932, and were, at that very time, attempting to build a case for stripping Einstein of his American citizenship! Should we be be surprised that the Nazi leader, Heinrich Himmler, was on J. Edgar Hoover’s special correspondents list until 1939?

The Nazi FBI

Then there’s the targeting of the pioneers of our U.S. space program, many of whom were German-American, brought to the U.S. after Hitler was defeated. When we read about the lives of Wernher von Braun, Krafft Ehricke, Robert Goddard, or Hermann Oberth, we encounter an optimism that sprung up and grew, almost entirely without the “necessary objective or propitious conditions.” What they shared—and this is most fully and beautifully expressed in the writings of rocket scientist Krafft Ehricke—was the power of genius: to create what had never existed before!

Yet is was the inspired German-American rocket scientists and engineers, who built both the U.S. ballistic missile and the space program, who were singled out and targeted by the Justice Department’s Office of Special Investigations and the FBI for their Nazi sympathies, but the only thing Nazi was the FBI itself.

“Operation Lightning Strike”

Mankind’s inherent spirit of cooperation, especially in the exploration of the frontiers of knowledge and space exploration, is mission critical. However in the United States, it has been simply, viciously suppressed, again and again by the FBI and related agencies, and this must now end. What has been the consequence of this sweep of FBI-policed manipulation and secrecy?

In 1991, after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the opening of the world politically, the FBI deliberately targeted our nation’s manned NASA space program, headquartered at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX. This FBI operation was code-named “Operation Lightning Strike.” Directed and coordinated from FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., Special Agent Hal Francis was deployed to Houston as “John Clifford.” A company was fabricated, complete with a phony financial history and ratings. The intention was not to actually sting a known criminal. There was no actual evidence that anyone at Johnson Space Center was committing, or intended to commit any crime. It was meant to disrupt and contaminate the environment, one ripe for new international collaboration.

"Operation Lightning Strike" officially ended in December, 1993, and after two years there was absolutely no record of criminal activity unearthed. A year later, in 1994, former NASA Administrator James Beggs said what he thought of “Operation Lightning Strike”:

“I think the whole idea of the government running stings in which you [use] government employees who lie and offer bribes with impunity, I think that’s outrageous. I don’t see any difference in that from what the Nazis did. What really disturbs me about them doing this kind of thing to NASA is that you sow the seeds of distrust among the people in the agency who are responsible for running a very difficult and exceedingly hazardous program. To sow the seeds of distrust, deliberately, in that program is about as despicable and disgusting and rotten a thing to do as I can imagine.”

James Beggs knew well. The FBI had originally targeted then-NASA Administrator Beggs in 1985, and forced his resignation. One month after James Beggs had been forced to resign as Administrator, with NASA now under the incompetent Acting Administrator, NASA Space Shuttle orbiter Challenger was launched from Kennedy Space Center in freezing weather, resulting in the death of seven of our precious astronauts. If James Beggs had been at the Florida launch site that day, as he surely would have been, that fatal launch would most likely not have occurred.

FBI Targets China Today

As China becomes the most scientifically advanced space-faring nation on the planet, more FBI witch-hunts have come to target Chinese-American scientists. Wen Ho Lee, a Taiwanese-born scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, was indicted in 1999 for stealing nuclear weapons designs and sharing them with China. He spent nine months in solitary confinement before all of the charges were dropped. Xiaoxing Xi, chair of the Physics Department of Temple University, working in superconductors, was arrested with his family at gunpoint by the FBI in 2015, before prosecutors withdrew all charges, leaving Xi and his family (and potential scientific collaborators) living and working in an environment of fear. Other cases are ongoing, including that of Szuhsiung "Allen" Ho, a nuclear engineer and consultant, who has been jailed since April and whose trial is set for 2017.

On October 20, 2016, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden reported on his blog that he had just participated in the second U.S.-China Civil Space Dialogue. This forum was organized by the U.S. State Department, so that NASA could participate—NASA is banned by Congress from working with China on manned space exploration. The Chinese freely told us about their manned program, but we could not tell them about ours. Truth be told, there is not much to tell! Indeed, we are on the outside looking in.

Returning to Alexander Hamilton, and Space

The passage of JASTA bill, which targets the Obama-British backed Saudi terror apparatus, and the overwhelming override of Obama’s treasonous veto, was a major victory! It came on the heels of the declassification of the “28 Pages” of the Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11, and more fully exposed the Bush/Obama/FBI ongoing cover-up of the British-Saudi role in the slaughter of of September 11, 2001. We must not stop!

We will have no future on the frontiers of science, and no nation, unless we regain the high-ground of Alexander Hamilton’s dictum: “to cherish and stimulate the activity of the human mind, by multiplying the objects of enterprise.” We must finally rid ourselves of the British-spawned FBI’s noxious influence, and all it stands for, in our national life.

The best option for the United States is immediate and in-depth collaboration with Russia and China on space exploration, fusion energy, and fundamental scientific advancement. It is the FBI that will be facing further investigations.



The Universe is Alive

In 1976 NASA's two Viking landers successfully touched down on the surface of Mars, becoming the first spacecraft to successfully land and operate on the red planet. While there have been many more landers to the red planet since 1976, this earliest of missions may have already found clear evidence of living microbial life!

Both Viking landers carried an experimental apparatus to test for metabolic activity in the Martian soil. When samples of Martian soil were given drops of nutrient solutions, both lander's returned positive signs of metabolic activity. Initially the Viking scientists were skeptical of the experiment, but by 1997 two of the scientists involved in the mission, i.e. Dr. Gilbert Levin and Dr. Patricia Straat, completed years of additional tests and investigations and concluded that the original 1976 results are actually best explained by the existence of microbial life on Mars!

Dr. Levin and Dr. Straat have now published a new paper in the journal {Astrobiology} presenting further evidence from Curiosity and other Mars missions which supports their argument. (see "The Case for Extant Life on Mars and Its Possible Detection by the Viking Labeled Release Experiment" in {Astrobiology}, October 2016)

The details of the original experiments, plus these subsequent further investigations, and the ongoing debates are now summarized in recent publications.

We will focus, however, on a related more important point: the ideological hostility towards Viking’s results. The obvious response to Viking should have been to include improved experimental tests on later missions (i.e. specific experiments to repeat the original tests, while also testing for homochirality in the results). However, in the half dozen NASA landers after Viking (launched between 1997 and 2012), each equipped with multiple instruments, none included an experiment to follow up the successful 1976 Viking results—despite the fact that such follow up experiments were proposed and quite feasible.

Why not dedicate at least one experiment to answer one of the most interesting questions in the Universe?

One thing is certain, modern academic investigations of life are dominated by the reductionist outlook of Alexander Oparin, rather than the superior approach of Oparin's ideological adversary, Vladimir Vernadsky. To the average modern scientist—even those studying life—the universe is fundamentally abiotic, with life being the result of a miraculous happenstance of chemical reactions. How exactly some accidental chemical arrangement became self-perpetuating, self-evolving, and one of the most complex systems known to man is not explained, but rather left to vague generalizations. What is known is that fossil records of life on Earth indicate coherent organization and rapidity of development (e.g., the Cambrian explosion and early date of the first signs of life on Earth) all of which point to life being the organizing principle intrinsic to the Universe itself—as Vernadsky argued.

In his 1930 "The Study of Life and the New Physics" Vernadsky argued that our basic "scientific picture of the cosmos" must be reshaped to include life as a fundamental principle, as intrinsic to the organization of the Universe as even gravitation. At the time of his writing, general relativity, the equivalence of mass and energy, and the paradoxical nature of the quantum had each freshly uprooted the most fundamental scientific assumptions of the Universe, yet Vernadsky, citing this upheaval, argued that the shift must go farther.

Vernadsky opens this 1930 work stating, "The revolution being carried out in physics in our 20th century places on the agenda in scientific thinking a review of fundamental biological conceptions. It is evident that it is making it possible for the first time to locate life phenomena in the Cosmos in their proper place, in a purely scientific conception of the universe..."

Deeper into the paper he says, "It is necessary to approach this process, whose progress seems inevitable to me, in another way, in relying upon the scientific conceptions of life. It is important to pay attention to the phenomena of life whose introduction in the domain of the scientific construction of the Universe is already beginning to become probable. We are approaching a very rational epoch—and that of a radical change in our conception of the scientific Universe. This change will not be, in its consequences, any less important than it was at the time of the creation of the Cosmos, based upon universal gravitation..."

Unfortunately, to the detriment of modern science, the pursuit of this principle largely died with Vernadsky, while the reductionism of Oparin has become dominant. Whatever the ultimate judgement on the 1976 Viking experiment, it is a tragedy that this highly provocative evidence for extant life on Mars ran up against the ideological brick-wall of modern reductionist dogma. It is long past time that we free science from the obstructive ideological prejudices.

As for the evidence itself, the new paper by Dr. Gilbert Levin and Dr. Patricia Straat, after 20 years of effort, is now published and freely available online, plus a video recording of Dr. Levin's presentation to the 2013 Human to Mars Summit.
