President Donald Trump, living up to his self-description as “an island of one,” is breaking through the British imperial mentality which dominates the U.S. political parties, the media, and Wall Street, and forging friendly ties with Russia and China. In his Sunday announcement that a U.S. Special Forces raid had killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and several other top ISIS terrorists, he explicitly thanked Russia and Syria (as well as Turkey, Iraq and the Kurds) for cooperation in the raid, although it was conducted entirely by U.S. forces and intelligence. He repeatedly told the press that Russia has as much hatred of the ISIS terrorists as does the U.S., and that he is confident that the Russians and the Syrians can contain ISIS while keeping the peace along the border with Turkey.

This comes just days after reaching a partial agreement with China on the trade crisis, and reining in his anti-China Vice President Mike Pence, whose anti-China speech at the Wilson Center this past week, while full of vicious lies about China, was also interspersed with several statements that President Trump wants to build friendly relations with China and does not want to contain China’s rise—statements totally lacking from his speech a year earlier at the Hudson Institute railing against China.

This comes at a moment in history in which massive social upheavals are occurring in every part of the world, mostly protesting the “Washington Consensus” economic austerity policies which have caused economic decay and misery throughout the world. In Chile, in particular, the home of the “Chile Model” so beloved by the City of London and Wall Street, put in place by the fascist Pinochet government in the 1970s, the population has risen up, demanding not just token handouts to pacify them, but for a new system based on development and jobs, to restore dignity to the people. Similar mass mobilizations are occurring in Iraq, Lebanon, and Argentina, where the election today removed the Wall Street puppet Mauricio Macri, whose policies have bankrupted the nation and destroyed the standard of living. Even in Europe, farmers are revolting against the austerity destroying family farms.

Yet, there is reason for hope and optimism that the paradigm of perpetual war and financial looting can finally be replaced with one of global development and cooperation of all nations, based on the common aims of mankind. The “Russiagate” coup attempt against President Trump was not only exposed as a total fraud, but now U.S. Attorney General William Barr has turned the investigation into the roots of that scam into a criminal investigation. The corrupt intelligence operatives in the Bush and Obama Administrations, together with British intelligence—the same institutions which falsified intelligence in order to precipitate the wars in the Middle East, and who ran the Russiagate scam against the President—are now facing criminal prosecutions for their crimes.

Note that these are the same institutions and individuals who ran the illegal prosecution of Lyndon LaRouche in the 1980s, in an effort to prevent the world from knowing the genius of this man, and his programs for the development of the world. Now, President Trump is adopting those programs formulated by LaRouche over the past 50 years—a Moon-Mars mission; ending the regime change wars; joining with Russia and China infighting terrorism and drug trafficking, while cooperating in space and scientific investigations; reviving U.S. industrial and infrastructural development; and exposing the notion of anthropogenic climate change as a British hoax to justify their anti-growth austerity measures. The current fanaticism of the Democratic Party in trying to manufacture an impeachment out of thin air, is not only intended to stop President Trump from implementing these programs, but is also out of the fear that he will also adopt LaRouche’s solution for the collapsing financial order, through Glass-Steagall reorganization of the banking system, which, if adopted internationally through a New Bretton Woods system, would spell the death knell of the British Empire once and for all.

Our effort to convince the President to exonerate Lyndon LaRouche, even following his death earlier this year, is precisely aimed at placing these great ideas before the American citizenry, and the citizenry of the world, to launch the new paradigm which is now within our grasp.
