President Trump, while holding massive rallies several times a week around the country to directly connect with the population in the weeks preceding the crucial mid-term election Nov. 6, has also made himself available to the "fake news press" far more often than before, where he is directly attacking the imperial mental constructs imposed on the population by the former governments and their controlled media outlets. Sunday night, CBS's 60 Minutes ran an interview with the President conducted by Leslie Stahl, whose disgusting and disrespectful performance was quite handily judoed by the increasingly comfortable President Trump.

Climate change? The climate changes, Trump said, but, "I don't know that it's manmade.... Scientists also have a political agenda." This entirely refutes the genocidal IPCC report demanding de-carbonization and stopping meat consumption.

Defend the Western Alliance? "What's an ally? We have wonderful relations with a lot of people, but nobody treats us much worse than the European Union."

Will you pledge not to shut down the Mueller probe? "I don't have to pledge to you.... I'm the President, and you're not."

Did Russia interfere in the election? "They meddled. But I think China meddled, too. And I think other countries—" [quickly cut off by Stahl, going back to Russia].

Are you going to impose more tariffs on China? "They want to negotiate. I have a great chemistry also with President Xi of China. I don't know that that's necessarily going to continue."

Since his speech to the UN on Sept. 25, President Trump has taken the gloves off in defense of the fundamental tenets of Western Civilization, defined at the Peace of Westphalia — the sovereignty of nations, based on the will of the people, and in concert with the interests of all other nations. This is blasphemy to the Lords of the Empire, both in the City of London and on Wall Street. Globalization — the modern euphemism for global imperial control — has failed, says Trump, bringing only economic subservience to international financial institutions, imperial wars, supra-national courts imposing imperial rule, criminal drug cartels, and economic decay.

Trump is letting it be reported — without confirmation as yet — that he plans to meet Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin soon after the election, hopefully then free of the Russiagate lies and the Democrats' impeachment scam.

It is our responsibility to assure that he also returns to his earlier commitment to American System reform, with Glass-Steagall and Hamiltonian national banking, as presented powerfully in Will Wertz's presentation in Manhattan Saturday. Only this can unleash the scientific and technological potential of our nation and all other nations, in the spirit of the New Silk Road. Trump's intention to rebuild American industry, to "make America great again," and to "make {their} nations great again" (as he said of the Ibero-American nations in his UN speech), depends absolutely on the success of our effort to make LaRouche's Four Laws intelligible to the American people, and bringing the US into cooperation with the Belt and Road Initiative. Japan has fully embraced the BRI; Italy has broken from the EU and embraced the BRI; all of Africa embraced the BRI at the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation on Sept. 3-4; and Ibero-American nations are now turning to China and the BRI, and fighting for their right to participate. In no case does this mean turning away from the United States — in fact, President Trump's defense of sovereignty at the UN was enthusiastically received by the nations of Asia, Africa, and Ibero-America.

Nonetheless, the world knows that Trump is surrounded by powerful figures who are desperate to undermine his intentions. In his 60 Minutes interview, he told Leslie Stahl: "I don't trust everybody in the White House... It's a tough business. This is a vicious place. Washington DC is a vicious, vicious place."

To hold the trust of the American people, he must first defeat the coup-mongers and the impeachment party; then re-establish his personal relationships with Xi and Putin; then restore the American System; then invoke a new Bretton Woods conference with the world's great powers to create a new world creditary system, to end the British Empire once and for all — peace through development.
