Pompeo and Bolton Drive World Towards War While Trump Moves for Cooperation

May 9, 2019

The intensity of the violent declarations against both Russia and China coming from the US Secretary of State and the National Security Adviser, Pompeo and Bolton, stand in stark contrast to efforts by President Trump to establish friendly relations with Russia and to negotiate a constructive cooperation agreement with China. Provoking crises in multiple hotspots Venezuela, Iran, Korea — and issuing extreme attacks on China and Russia, Pompeo's current tour of Europe is an open drive for military confrontation, intentionally declaring that peaceful cooperation must be replaced with geopolitical conflict. At the Arctic Forum meeting this week, he lectured the member states that their historic approach to joint, peaceful development of the region must end, that they must join the US in denouncing imagined Chinese and Russian "aggression," even comparing China to Nazi Germany. Pompeo then cancelled a planned visit to Germany without informing the Germans as to the reason, flying off to Iraq, where he lectured the Iraqis that they must protect US troops in their country from an imagined Iranian attack. (The Iraqi Foreign Ministry issued a statement after Pompeo had left, that Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi had told him that "his country will continue to strengthen friendship and cooperation with all friendly and neighboring countries, including Iran.")

Pompeo then visited the UK, where he gushed: "It was evident in my conversations both with Jeremy Hunt and with Prime Minister May that the special relationship does not simply endure, it is thriving." He told the press that Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn's refusal to support the US-backed fake "President" Guaido in Venezuela was "disgusting."

And yet, President Trump was, at virtually the same moment, issuing yet another tweet branding the British as the primary culprits in the treasonous coup attempt against his presidency. He wrote: "This British spy, Christopher Steele, tried so hard to get this (the Fake Dossier) out before the election. Why?"

Trump is referring to the revelation contained in an FOIA-procured document, released on Tuesday, of heavily redacted notes by Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec from a meeting she held with former MI6 agent Steele on October 11, 2016 — a month before the election and just ten days before Comey et al. filed a brief with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA Court) requesting approval to spy on the Trump campaign, which request depended entirely on the fake Steele dossier. Kavalec's notes show that Steele was "keen to see this information come to light prior to Nov. 8 [i.e., election day]". This report confirms that Steele was acting on his earlier confessed hatred of Donald Trump, on behalf of the British Empire and the Hillary Clinton campaign (which had paid Steele for his dossier). This constituted direct interference in the US election on behalf of a hostile foreign power — not the Russians, but the British Empire.

Ironically, Joe Biden, the septuagenarian Democrat who has now announced as a candidate for President, told a fundraiser that he had received a call from Prime Minister Theresa May expressing "anxiety" about Donald Trump and calling on Old Paradigm Joe to run against him. Thus, not only was British intelligence interfering in US elections, but the head of the British government is also directly interfering, desperate to defeat Trump. Indeed, the House of Lords released a report in December 2018 warning that the "special relationship" could not survive a second term for Donald Trump, and must not allow it.

Those who have, over the past half-century, attempted to dismiss or refute Lyndon LaRouche's insistence that the British Empire was the historic — and continuing — primary enemy of the United States of America, and of a civilized world, are now being forced to deal with that fundamental error in their understanding of history and of current affairs. The emergence of a President who is not afraid to expose British calumny, who opposes Imperial wars, and who promotes cooperation between Russia, China, and the United States, has forced the British to betray themselves as the controlling force behind their corrupted assets in the United States, who have increasingly served the Empire since the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the assassination of John F. Kennedy. This is especially true of the administrations of the Bush family and Barack Obama, whose supporters today are desperately trying to continue the coup attempt against Trump despite the collapse of the "Russia collusion" hoax. Worse, the Bolton/Pompeo/Pence trio is openly countering virtually every step Trump has made to restore sovereignty to the United States, preaching geopolitical divisions and war-threatening confrontations which threaten a new global war.

This dichotomy within the American body politic can and must be resolved, bringing the US into a new paradigm of cooperation with China and Russia in the New Silk Road, in combatting terrorism, and in establishing a new world economic order. The only certain means for accomplishing this existential task facing the human race, is for President Trump to exonerate Lyndon LaRouche, thus placing LaRouche's ideas for this new paradigm before the the citizens of the United States, and the human family of nations.
