President Trump arrived in London on today, where he has an opportunity to directly challenge the crimes of the British Imperial operatives who are now publicly exposed for their failed effort to depose the President of the United States. This crime matches earlier crimes of Perfidious Albion against America and the American System since the Revolution, including the War of 1812 and the British sponsorship of the Confederacy in the Civil War. The fact that the British Empire has carried out multiple assassinations against U.S. Presidents, including that of JFK, requires that the British intelligence operatives who directed the failed coup, including former MI6 Director Richard Dearlove and GCHQ Director Robert Hannigan, be publicly and loudly identified and denounced — something that Lyndon LaRouche asserted as the "factitious advantage" attained by pre-identifying the actual controller of a would-be assassin.

Trump has, after all, publicly identified the British and Five Eyes member Australia as central operatives in the attempted coup. Now, in regard to his state visit, EIR has compiled "Seven Questions and Demands President Trump Should Have for His British Hosts If Any Intelligence Relationship Is To Continue."

Exposing the historic role of the British Empire in efforts to restore control over its former American colony has never been more urgent, nor more feasible. The American people have awakened to this reality due to the blatant British hatred — and covert actions against — the Presidency of Donald Trump. People of good will, as patriots of their respective nations, must do all within their power to help expose this evil, and end the existence of Empire and geopolitics in the world once and for all.

The urgency in this effort is seen in the escalating danger of the confrontation between China and the Trump Administration, despite Trump's personal declaration that he wants good relations with Xi Jinping and China. Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan, speaking at the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore on June 1, issued a series of lying diatribes against China, with only a few moderating statements offering cooperation. He denounced China as a "disruptive actor" challenging the "regional order," and "the greatest threat to the vital interests of states across the region," retailing multiple accusations from the hysterical campaign against all-things-Chinese taking place in the U.S. and the U.K. today.

The other nations of Asia, of course, do not consider China a threat, but welcome China's rise, and the huge benefits of the new paradigm offered by the Belt and Road Initiative, despite the "instructions" from the West that they must side with the U.S. against China and avoid the "predatory economics and debt for sovereignty deals" (Shanahan's words) coming from China.

The danger is great. Chinese Defense Minister Gen. Wei Fenghe addressed the same forum in Singapore today. He began: "Humanity is at a crossroad," contrasting "Xi Jinping's great vision of building a community with a shared future for mankind" to Shanahan's attempt to restore "military blocs," and openly attempting to "undermine the interests of others." General Wei continues: "See the world with an open and inclusive mind, and there will be friends and partners everywhere. See the world with a narrow and exclusive mind, and there are only enemies and adversaries. This is a self-fulfilling prophesy."

China's State Council also released today a White Paper on "China's Position on the China-U.S. Economic and Trade Consultations" (see below). It strongly rejects the accusations issued by U.S. trade negotiators Robert Lighthizer and Steven Mnuchin that China had reneged on agreements, or that China's incredible progress is due solely to stealing technologies from the West. The White Paper stresses: "The trade war has not 'made America great again.'" Nonetheless, it argues for renewed negotiations.

The coming month, leading into the G20 meeting in Osaka on June 28-29, is a crucial moment in human history. The heads of the four great civilizations identified by Lyndon LaRouche as the "Four Powers," will all be present — China, Russia, India and the United States (representing the distillation of the best of European civilization). Trump has indicated that he intends to meet with Putin, Xi, and Modi at this summit. It is this grouping which LaRouche identified as the necessary minimum to constitute a New Bretton Woods conference; to establish a new global creditary system; to replace the broken London-based monetary system; and to create a new paradigm of win-win cooperation to replace the Anglo-Dutch liberal system forever.

A Memorial for Lyndon LaRouche will be held on June 8 in New York City. There could be no more fitting action to honor his memory than for the Four Powers leaders to meet and to begin the process of forging the new paradigm. Were President Trump to announce the exoneration of Lyndon LaRouche during this auspicious month in history, the potential for that new paradigm would be much enhanced.
