Trump’s SOTU and Senate Acquittal Create a Moment of Optimism, Opening for LaRouche’s Policies
The “overwhelming optimism” of President Donald Trump’s Tuesday night State of the Union address (SOTU), combined with his acquittal in the Senate vote on Wednesday, create a moment of optimism in which it is possible that the strategic and financial crises threatening mankind can now be resolved, Helga Zepp-LaRouche stated in her weekly international webcast. With Trump freed from this latest threat of being removed from office, Helga Zepp-LaRouche called on viewers of her weekly webcast to support him in a full break with the British economic and geopolitical doctrines which have created the crises. She emphasized that now is the moment in which “people should really move forward with LaRouche’s Four Laws program, including Glass-Steagall, a national bank, a crash program for fusion and international space cooperation, including mobilizing for the full funding for Artemis to be pushed through Congress.” Zepp-LaRouche also underscored the need for an emergency summit of Trump, Putin, Xi and Modi; and the exoneration of her husband Lyndon LaRouche, who passed away nearly a year ago.
The exoneration of LaRouche, she said, would enable people to study his ideas in economics, history and science, to rise to the level of strategic thinking necessary to take advantage of this moment. One of the real problems we face, which can be overcome by familiarity with LaRouche’s method, is that the connection between energy flux-density and potential relative population-density, one of the keys to success in physical economy, is not understood. Instead, both internationally and in the United States, growth of the stock market and other financial assets are mistakenly taken to represent real economic value.
The reality is, we are facing a meltdown of the British-run trans-Atlantic financial system, combined with physical economic collapse which is making it nearly impossible for most of the world to deal with crises such as the locust plague now ravaging Africa and large parts of Southwest Asia, and the spread of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). Such crises, such as the continuing danger of regional and even thermonuclear war, urgently require a summit meeting among the heads of government of the U.S., China, Russia and India, as both Helga and Lyndon LaRouche have repeatedly called for.
The optimism sweeping the United States, and President Trump’s demonstrated willingness to fight, have made such policy options a very real possibility.
In contrast to this optimism, Zepp-LaRouche spoke of the “Rumpelstiltskin Moment” of Nancy Pelosi at the SOTU, where she theatrically ripped up her written copy of President Trump’s speech; the debacle of the Iowa Democratic Caucuses; the “barrage of racism” against China on the novel coronavirus; and the Bloomberg campaign’s championing of Green fascism, as examples of the threat which must be overcome.
The year 2020 is the year that the old system likely will collapse—let’s make sure it is replaced by a New Paradigm, which acts in the interest of the Common Aims of Mankind, Zepp-LaRouche concluded.
