‘Obamagate’ Launched, as Trump Calls Up Kennedy Space Program and Crew Dragon Success To Inspire Unity

As the internal disintegration in nearly 50 major U.S. cities is shocking Americans and people throughout the world, two events launched today mark a fightback against the anarchy being fed by the media and many elected officials, who are attempting to turn the orchestrated chaos into “phase three” of the coup attempt against President Donald Trump.

The first event was the release by President Trump’s Presidential Campaign of a video campaign ad titled “Make Space Great Again.” He began the ad with Democratic President John F. Kennedy at Rice University: “This country of the United States was not built by those who waited and rested and wished to look behind them.” Then, Kennedy’s famous call to “go to the Moon in this decade, and do the other things,” followed by Neil Armstrong stepping on the Moon, with his “great leap for Mankind.”

Trump then points to “that magnificent moment,” which demonstrates what Americans can do when they all work together, adding that we are now writing the “next chapter in American space exploration,” based on a “new platform” which will allow American pioneers to return to space exploration.

Never has the nation been more in need of such optimism and inspiration, as was invoked by the successful Falcon 9 launch and the Dragon Endeavour docking over the weekend. Although the mass rioting, looting, and arson across the nation was significantly reduced Tuesday night, evidence from mayors and governors and police chiefs throughout the country is demonstrating the organized nature of the violence, taking advantage of the legitimate rage of millions of people, disgusted not only by the brutal murder of an unarmed man by a racist cop, but also by the unprecedented collapse of the American economy, the 50 million people out of work, and the strain of the lockdown. The same forces who ran the three-year witch hunt against President Trump, known to have been directed by British intelligence, are now frantically trying to turn the national crises into an anti-Trump campaign, which will be documented in coming issues of EIR and the EIR Alert Service.

The second critical event launched today took place in the Senate Judiciary Committee, where the investigation into the attempted coup against the President began with testimony and questioning of former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed “legal assassin” Robert Mueller as Special Counsel to investigate the (non-existent) collusion between Trump and Russia. Trump has labeled this “Obamagate”—the primary culprits within the U.S. were part of the Obama intelligence team—but it were better called the “third war against the British Empire,” following the American Revolution and the Civil War. Committee Chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham asserted that there will be criminal prosecutions coming out of the DOJ investigation, and that his Committee will thoroughly investigate the Mueller probe and the case against Gen. Michael Flynn, intending to demonstrate also that that investigation had no justification to have been launched in the first place. The principal actors are already trying to deflect the blame onto one another, as Rosenstein accused McCabe, and McCabe quickly called him a liar. Senator Graham, unfortunately, is part and parcel of the continuing lie, by both parties, that Russia hacked the DNC computers and “interfered in the 2016 election.”

The onrushing financial tsunami continues to build as it gets closer to shore. Argentina was declared in default on June 1 by the vultures of the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, sparking approximately $1.5 billion in credit default swaps. Visions of 2008 are appearing everywhere, except that the bubble of derivatives “gambling debts” today is nearly double that of 2008, and the incredible pace of money printing—mostly not going into the real economy, but keeping bankrupt banks afloat—threaten a hyperinflationary explosion this time.

The only solution for all of these crises is an immediate revolutionary transformation of the system itself, creating millions of jobs in emergency reconstruction in the U.S. and worldwide, and putting the banking system through a Glass-Steagall reform such that credit can begin to be directed into the real economy: space exploration, and frontier discoveries in basic science, such as fusion energy.
