Team RogueMoney's friend Harley Schlanger emailed us from Berlin, amused that the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) mouthpiece mag Foreign Policy is bashing the Bürgerrechtsbewegung Solidarität - BüSo (Civil Rights Movement Solidarity) party as pro-Chinese. This is due to BüSo putting up flyers around Berlin ahead of next week's federal elections embracing the One Belt One Road (OBOR)/New Silk Road mega-projects as Germany's future -- a future that doesn't include a failing EUro currency or US/NATO driven confrontation with German industry's indispensable technology and trade partner, Russia.
The BüSo party's cofounder Helga Zepp LaRouche, is the wife of American political theorist and economist Lyndon LaRouche, whose extensive quotes and video commentary have been featured here at RM. Ms. Zepp-LaRouche first traveled to China in the early 1970s, when the country was just opening up to the rest of the world after years of tremendous suffering amidst revolutionary turmoil. She is now known in Beijing by the honorable nickname 'the New Silk Road lady'.
This post originally published at LaRouchePAC.com on Monday, September 18, 2017 describes the implications of a country originally carved out of Colombia by the U.S. in order to build the canal linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, Panama, opening its first embassy in the People's Republic of China this summer. Along with its eco-tourist friendly neighbor Costa Rica, the Panamanian government is seeking to rapidly expand Central and South American participation in the One Belt One Road initiative. -- JWS
