Old Paradigm Dying in the Trans-Atlantic Region — British are Panicking
Over the past week, President Trump has trashed the efforts by the British and their assets in the discredited Obama intelligence apparatus to invent a justification for war with Russia and China. The Western media unleashed a tirade of denunciations of China, and especially of President Xi Jinping, following the announcement that term limits were being dropped from China's Constitution, calling Xi a ruthless dictator, a new Emperor for life, and a danger to the world. Trump responded at a private dinner with Republicans: "He's now president for life. President for life. No, he's great. And look, he was able to do that. I think it's great. Maybe we'll have to give that a shot some day." The pathetic media whores went ballistic.
Legal Assassin Robert Mueller's coup attempt against Trump on behalf of British intelligence, aimed at stopping Trump's cooperation with President Putin, is floundering. One of Mueller's targets today said he was ignoring Mueller's subpoena, calling it a "witchhunt," adding: "Let him arrest me." Two Republican Congressmen have called for a special prosecutor to investigate the crimes of the FBI in using the scurrilous report by British intelligence agent Christopher Steele to justify spying on the Trump campaign. Trump, himself, tweeted today that the witchhunt was on Obama's shoulders: "Why did the Obama Administration start an investigation into the Trump Campaign (with zero proof of wrongdoing) long before the Election in November? Unprecedented. Bigger than Watergate."
At the same time, Trump is demonstrating that he is fighting the neocons in the Republican Party as intently as those in the Democratic Party. Speaking at a Republican fundraiser in Florida, Trump called the Iraq invasion "the single worst decision ever made," equivalent to "throwing a big fat brick into a hornet's nest. Here we are, like the dummies of the world, because we had bad politicians running our country for a long time. That was Bush. Another real genius. That was Bush."
The British are panicked. The New Yorker magazine this week published an expansive cover-up of MI6 official Steele's role, titled "How the ex-spy tried to warn the world about Trump's ties to Russia." The interview with Steele tries to cover up the role of the British in the treasonous effort to bring down the government of the United States and provoke a war with Russia.
The panic is also driven by the shock effect of President Putin's announcement on March 1 of new Russian military capacities which render the US/NATO ring of missile defense systems around Russia impotent and useless, which Helga Zepp-LaRouche characterized as a new "Sputnik" wake-up call to the world. The systemic take-over of U.S. economic policy by Wall Street speculators since the assassination of President Jack Kennedy allowed the drugged-up boys in the City of London and Wall Street to wallow in their fake money, but it is now clear that the destruction of the Western productive and scientific capacities, in favor of funny money, has its down side in the destruction of any real wealth. Putin makes the same point by insisting that the Russian military breakthrough was the result of a complex that "includes science, education, personnel, and modern manufacturing facilities," precisely what the U.S. has abandoned in favor of quick profits through gambling. Putin adds: "It gives us great hope that all of that can be used and applied in civilian industries."
Far from being a threat to the West, Putin has called for the West to finally reverse their unipolar fantasies, and to sit down with Russia and others and work out the means for global peace and cooperation.
Trump is also working with South Korean President Moon Jae-in to create the conditions for resolving the North Korea crisis. A South Korean delegation to the North met today with North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un, to "deliver President Moon's intent to maintain the flow of inter-Korean dialogue and improving relations to obtain permanent peace and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula..., as well as dialogue between the North and the US and the international community," as the head of the South Korean delegation told the press. Trump this past weekend said that there would definitely be talks between Washington and Pyongyang. The British and the neoconservatives are horrified, since the Korea crisis is their primary (artificial) justification for their military ring around China.
The old paradigm is crumbling. Italy's national election on Sunday threw out both branches of the established political institutions, just as the German elections five months ago left the traditional parties in disarray. After five months of squabbling, the has-been German parties (SPD-CDU-CSU) finally put together a government on Sunday, which is as stable as a two-legged chair. As in the U.S., the only path to growth and stability in Europe is to acknowledge the death of the old paradigm, and adopt the policies formulated long ago by Lyndon LaRouche — Glass Steagall banking reform; establishment of Hamiltonian national banking institutions; massive sovereign credit generation for science drivers and infrastructure; and full cooperation with China and Russia in the New Silk Road. This is the moment of truth.
