Mid-term Election Victories Create Great Opportunity for a New Bretton Woods and LaRouche's Four Laws

President Trump held a long press conference yesterday to express his delight at the "big victory" in the midterm elections, which have resulted in a clear majority for the Democrats in the House and a strengthening of the Republican control in the Senate, as well as Republican victories in several gubernatorial races in key battleground states. Trump had focused on the Senate and Gubernatorial races, with dramatic results — of the eleven rallies he held over the last week of the campaign, nine of the candidates won — several of whom had been behind in the polls.

The fact that the Senate is now solidly Republican means that winning an impeachment trial in the Senate would be virtually impossible, so that a Democratic effort to launch impeachment proceedings in the House would be recognized as nothing but an attempt to block any actual business in the Congress. Interestingly, Trump reported that he had called Nancy Pelosi to congratulate her on the Democrats retaking the House, and told the press that he considered her to be a qualified leader, that she "loves her country," and that he looks forward to working with her and the Democrats in passing legislation needed by the American people. Even more interesting, he said that he considers the current outcome to be the best of all possible outcomes — if the Republicans had won by two or three seats, he said, the Democrats would continue voting as a block against everything Trump proposed, while a few Republicans usually cross over, so nothing would get done. Now, the Democrats will have to propose legislation, knowing that it must pass in the Senate, and, he said, there are many important areas where we agree and can make progress. He emphasized infrastructure, but also trade, drug prices, border security, immigration, and more.

Or, he said, the Democrats could use their new power in the House to launch witch-hunts against the Administration, which would fire back, and nothing will get done.

It is of note that nearly all of the Republican members of Congress who have worked to expose the criminal actions by British intelligence and the Obama administration to interfere in the 2016 election, and then to attempt "regime change" against Trump after that election, have nearly all been re-elected in this midterm election, despite fierce efforts to unseat them. Trump also told the press that he was now, again, looking at declassification of the damning documents that prove the British/Obama criminal activity, saying that he had only held off until after the midterm elections. Within hours of his press conference, Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned, which will allow the appointment of someone who can pursue this crime — the greatest crime against the United States since the British instigation of the Civil War.

Helga Zepp-LaRouche's historic visit to Moscow last month, in which she exposed to the Russians the fact that the British — not the Russians — have been caught subverting the democratic process in the U.S., has set the environment for the upcoming full formal meeting to take place between Trump and Putin at the G20 Summit in Argentina at the end of November. As to the trade conflict with China, Trump tweeted this morning that some of his "foreign friends" had been "waiting me out, and hoping on Trade Deals. Now we can all get back to work and get things done." He will also hold a full formal meeting with Xi Jinping at the G20.

The situation is now wide open for mobilizing the necessary support for the President to fully embrace the necessary solutions to the economic and strategic crises facing mankind, as formulated in LaRouche's Four Laws, and for the leaders of the "Four Powers" to issue a call for a New Bretton Woods, restoring the original intention of Franklin Roosevelt for American System methods to replace colonialism, to build a world of modern, industrial, sovereign nations. That method is already partially in place in the New Silk Road, launched by China's Xi Jinping, and now engaging over 100 nations. Not only the U.S., but every nation on Earth must be provided the right to participate in this new paradigm for Mankind.
