War Party Flails Against the New Reality Defined by the Singapore and Helsinki Summits

War Party Flails Against the New Reality Defined by the Singapore and Helsinki Summits

On Friday Russian President Vladimir Putin said while in South Africa for the BRICS Summit that he had invited U.S. President Donald Trump to Moscow for talks. The Administration reciprocated later in the day, saying Putin is welcome to visit the White House next year. Despite major Senate opposition and hysterical press and social media cries of ‘treason!’, the two sides are slowly working towards easing tensions. The response from the British-led trans-Atlantic deep state and their front men in Congress has been to propose more sanctions and accuse Moscow of hacking into the U.S. power grid and the campaign of Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill.

The deep state dead-enders are doubling down on the Russiagate scandal, with former attorney Michael Cohen contradicting his previous Senate testimony and public denials that candidate Trump did not know about a summer 2016 meeting between his son Donald Jr. and Fusion GPS paid “Russian government lawyer” provocateur Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower (Ms. Veselnitskaya was coached by Fusion GPS CEO Glenn Simpson before the meeting and after it). The President tweeted out that Cohen has likely hired old Clintons crony Lanny Davis and turned on his former patron to save himself and his Ukrainian-born father in law from an indictment over fraud in their New York taxi business — charges that, like the indictments against former campaign chair Paul Manafort, have nothing to do with Russia collusion. But they have everything to do with special counsel Robert Mueller’s desperation to find any witness who can testify for him against President Trump.

After the Helsinki Summit, Trump Threatens Iran in ALL CAPS tweet

After the Helsinki Summit, Trump Threatens Iran in ALL CAPS tweet

A week has passed since the Trump-Putin summit, and a RogueMoney reader asked me for my thoughts on the outcome. Rather than give the stock answer of ‘it’s too soon to say’, I thought I’d do what analysts do and emphasize the knowns, then contrast those with the greater part that remain ‘known unknowns’ in the ongoing negotiations to defuse Cold War II (or more accurately, to revive the USA’s geoeconomic fortunes because Kissingerian realists in Washington realized by 2016 fighting Russia, China and Iran all at once while dominating the EU, Japan and the Koreas was no longer feasible). The problem with this traditional analytical framework including labels like ‘realism’ vs. neo-conservativism, is that Trump defies easy characterization.

On the one hand, Trump appears to sincerely want to improve U.S.-Russia relations because he has taken more heat for this than any other aspect of his platform, culminating in this week’s insane allegations that he has committed ‘treason’ by questioning the ‘intelligence community’ finding that Russia interfered in the 2016 elections in support of his candidacy. On the other hand, on Sunday night Trump escalated his anti-Iran rhetoric, hours after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) delivered a speech in southern California calling for a 1980s Reaganesque policy of rollback against the Islamic Republic.

Hysteria Dominates Official Response in U.S. to Trump-Putin Summit

Hysteria Dominates Official Response in U.S. to Trump-Putin Summit

July 20 -- In reaction to the outpouring of rage, bitterness and hysteria towards him following his successful summit and press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on July 16 in Helsinki, Finland, President Donald Trump sent out a tweet on July 18 which further angered his opponents.  "Some people HATE the fact that I got along well with President Putin of Russia," he wrote.  "They would rather go to war than see this.  It's called Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Responding to this in her July 19 Schiller Institute webcast, Helga Zepp LaRouche said it is not simply "Trump Derangement Syndrome...some of these people really have a deranged mind...they are deranged; because any peace-loving person in the world, should be happy about this," referring to the result of the summit (*****see article on summit).

How then should one assess the overwhelming rancor toward Trump exhibited by his political opponents in both parties, the intelligence community and the mainstream media?  Is it possible that the anti-Trump networks really would prefer to go to war with Russia, than to engage in dialogue?  And does this represent the view of the American people?

Trump and Putin: The New Paradigm in Action, Sending Traitors into Hysterical Fits of Rage

Trump and Putin: The New Paradigm in Action, Sending Traitors into Hysterical Fits of Rage

The historic summit today between Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin has marked a dramatic phase-shift in history. It is the result of a long, difficult battle, led in no small part by Lyndon LaRouche over the past fifty years, to create an alignment of interests among the great nations and cultures of history as the necessary and sufficient force required to end the tyranny of the British Empire once and for all. In particular, LaRouche posed that cooperation among "Four Powers" — Russia, China, India, and the United States (representing the distillation of the best of European culture) — could replace the broken Western financial system centered in London and Wall Street with a new paradigm, based not on monetary power and colonial wars, but on a credit system to bring peace and prosperity through mutual development for all nations.

Before stepping into the private, one-on-one meeting with Putin, Trump told the press that they would be discussing many things, mentioning, in particular, that Russia and the U.S. were cooperating with "our mutual friend President Xi."

LaRouchePAC Statement: Mueller Issues Fake Indictment; Brits In Rug- Chewing Fit That Putin And Trump Might Accomplish Peace

LaRouchePAC Statement: Mueller Issues Fake Indictment; Brits In Rug- Chewing Fit That Putin And Trump Might Accomplish Peace

(July 13, 2018) Desperate to head off a possible accommodation between President Trump and President Putin, which could result in a principled approach to a viable peace, the British, Robert Mueller, and the "resist" holdover forces in the U.S. intelligence community and news media have staged a trifecta of calculated information warfare operations within the last 24 hours to sabotage the summit.

In the United States, two inter-related events occurred. First, embattled FBI Agent Peter Strzok appeared before a joint House hearing on Thursday to claim that the Republicans on the House Judiciary and Government Oversight Committees were doing "Putin's work" for him by continuing to examine the British and Obama Administration/Democratic Party origins of Russiagate. Strzok's charge, obviously choreographed with Congressional Democrats, was greeted by them with Jacobin cheers and endlessly cycled in the news media.

"The President Trump Europeans Do Not Know" Roger Stone's video address to the June 30-July 1, 2018 Schiller Institute conference at Bad Soden (near Frankfurt), Germany

"The President Trump Europeans Do Not Know" Roger Stone's video address to the June 30-July 1, 2018 Schiller Institute conference at Bad Soden (near Frankfurt), Germany

Roger J. Stone Jr. was unable to attend the recent international Schiller Institute conference in Bad Soden, Germany, but spoke to attendees via video conference. The reason Stone is limited in his travel budget and time these days is Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s witch hunt against President Trump, launched to block any shift against a policy of permanent Cold War II against Russia and China. Stone’s friend and former lobbying colleague Paul Manafort is being held in Virginia federal solitary confinement 23 hours a day — a vindictive measure not justified by any conduct or threat posed by or to the 69-year-old, issued as a punishment for Manafort refusing to bear false witness against Donald Trump or his former campaign associates.

We’re proud to say Stone was a guest on the RogueMoneyRadio program back in March 2016, when hardly anyone in the legacy media gave Donald Trump any chance of defeating the Clintons well oiled political machine. Thanks to Harley Schlanger and the Schiller Institute, RogueMoney is re-posting the video of Stone’s remarks and a transcript below. You can watch more of the webcast here. — JWS

Nunes Urges Committee Heads To Subpoena Obama/British Agents Behind Russiagate

July 3, 2018 (EIRNS)—Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, has urged two fellow committee chairmen to subpoena a total of 27 former Obama administration White House, FBI, and State Department officials to testify before their committees, related to potential surveillance abuse during the 2016 election, as well as the State Department’s role in promoting the Steele dossier.

As reported by both the Washington Examiner and Daily Caller, in June 29 and July 2 letters to Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Bob Goodlatte, chairmen of the House Oversight Committee and House Judiciary committee, respectively, Nunes said that his committee discovered matters “that likely fall within the purview of the joint task force of the Committees on Oversight and Government Reform and the Judiciary,” and refers to the list of people “who may have relevant information.”

‘Why the CIA Needs Its Own Horowitz Report’

‘Why the CIA Needs Its Own Horowitz Report’

June 30, 2018 (EIRNS)—Holman Jenkins of the Wall Street Journal editorial board posted a signed editorial under the above title. Although he expresses anti-Russia opinions, he strongly expresses the truth that Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper are at least equally as guilty as Comey, Mueller and their team at the DOJ and FBI of peddling lies to prevent Trump from becoming President, and their continuing effort to drive him out of office.
