Call the British Bluff: They Are Bankrupt, and They Are Lying About Trump and Russia-gate

From Seattle to Greenwich, from France to Spain, the international LaRouche movement is hammering away at the British Empire's plot to topple the Trump government, a plot premised entirely on the Big Lie that Russian President Vladimir Putin hacked DNC computers to throw the 2016 U.S. presidential election to Trump.

That mobilization is drawing blood, but it must now be escalated on a foreshortened timeline, before the British Empire succeeds in their attempted coup, which would bring the world to the brink of thermonuclear war. We are in a position to break the situation wide open, with the assistance of the VIPS memo, because the majority of the American population does not buy the whole fairy tale about Russia's role, nor the drive for confrontation and war with Russia and China. They don't have a clear idea of what policies should be adopted--that is an educational task which also falls to us--but they do know that the whole anti-Trump media uproar stinks to high heaven.

The British bluff must be called; neither the American people nor President Trump should continue to play by the rigged rules of their game. Theirs is a thoroughly bankrupt empire, which begs to be buried by FDR's Glass-Steagall policy and the establishment of a Hamiltonian credit system linking the Americas and Europe to China's Belt and Road Initiative.

President Trump, Helga Zepp-LaRouche noted today, could outflank the whole gambit around the Congressional stampede for sanctions against Russia, Iran, and North Korea--a bill unfortunately signed into law today, albeit with a Presidential signing statement which correctly characterized the bill as unconstitutional--by new, unexpected initiatives, such as calling an urgent summit meeting with Putin to jointly address common concerns regarding the economy, terrorism, the drug trade, etc.

Meanwhile, a highly visible policy fight is raging in and around the Trump administration in Washington. Vice President Pence is on a tour of Balkan nations to promote conflict with Russia, descending to such absurd depths as characterizing Montenegro (population 600,000) as an "inspiration to the world" for standing up to Russia and joining NATO. At the same time, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told the press that he and Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov are "trying to find ways that we can bring this relationship back closer towards one another," and that "we're working closely with Russia and other parties" in the fight against terrorism in Syria.

Which it will be--war or peace, depression or development-- is largely in our hands.
