Stop "Russiagate" — Let Trump, Xi, and Putin Build!

Once again in the case of Texas, and the tremendous economic and human destruction of Hurricane Harvey, we find that truly comprehensive infrastructure projects to prevent such destruction were planned in the 1960s. This was JFK's era of Apollo and the great western "TVA" called the North American Water and Power Alliance. These potentials were stopped, stripped of funds and commitment, by the eruption of British geopolitics in American policy — the Vietnam War. What are now called — under Britain's Blair and Bush and Obama — "regime-change" wars, have ever since been the enemy of taking care of the general welfare in America. For the lack of new and bold infrastructure platforms which would have cost tens of billions, we have seen whole cities devastated by floods and hundreds of billions lost to the American economy.

This has coincided with Wall Street's increasing dominance over American economic policy, up to and including a huge financial crash from which we have not recovered. It is not nature, but "greed and neglect" causing the hurricanes' destruction.

Now, with serious leadership from President Donald Trump, an understanding of the need to rebuild has spread among Americans, along with a deeper sense. The poet Shelley, who was also a political writer, wrote that in times of crisis, many, people in large numbers may cease to think solely about themselves and their immediate families, and rather suddenly shift their passionate concern to helping others and to "the general good." This is now having its effect in the United States, as seen in some recent political decisions and in the outlook of Americans more generally.

Part of this, is that they want "Russiagate" stopped, and stopped now. This flagrant British intelligence injection of a geopolitical scare, into what became virtually a new McCarthyism in America, must end.

EIR has contributed to ending it by a major public event in New York on Saturday burying the hoax of "Russia fixing our Presidential election." Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, now demanding even communications from Air Force One as if the President were on the NSA's terrorist enemies list, is defying the overwhelming will of the American people and keeps preparing to force a constitutional crisis. This must end. So must the transparent attempts at racial warfare, in which the hand of George Soros and the British, and the hand and hood of Mueller's FBI, can be seen.

President Trump and Congress must proceed rapidly with economic rebuilding, conquering Wall Street with a new Glass-Steagall Act and issuing national credit in trillions for new infrastructure and productivity, new advances in science and manufacturing.

This is already being done across Asia and Africa by China, in clear strategic partnership with Russia; and the Belt and Road Initiative is where Trump's United States will find partnership in credit and engineering of projects, and strategic cooperation to stop regional wars. It's a new paradigm toward which President Trump has at times been drawn. It needs to become policy, and "Russiagate" must go.
