The European geopoliticians around London, and the American neo-cons and liberal imperialists, are so "deranged" by the continuing series of impossible summits which began in Singapore with President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un of North Korea, that is is clear their policy can really be eradicated.
The substantive problems being discussed at these meetings, especially involving the United States and Russia, are very difficult to solve. But the threat of thermonuclear war these geopoliticians are all too willing to risk, is being driven down. And the new economic and diplomatic paradigm launched around China's Belt and Road Initiative, is providing the means to replace it entirely, with great-power cooperation for the economic and scientific progress of mankind.
But geopolitics can't be killed off while the menace of "free trade" runs rampant.Read More
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.

The following is a roundup of the @FinanceExaminer Ken “the Shotgun Professor” Schortgen Jr’s posts about the hysteria surrounding the Trump-Putin summit and the intriguing discovery of a Russo-Japanese war era shipwreck reportedly containing over $100 billion in gold bars. Even if the estimate of what can be salvaged from the Far Eastern waters proves overly optimistic, the shipwreck underlines the massive mineral wealth the Russian treasury possessed on the eve of World War I that Moscow’s historic enemies in the City of London coveted, and eventually plundered while using the mass murdering Bolsheviks as their agents. — JWSRead More
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. — JWSRead More
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.Read More
“What does the British government know about Trump and Russia? Many trails in the Mueller inquiry lead straight to the UK” is the headline of an article published this week in the UK Spectator by BBC journalist Paul Wood. The nominally editorial independent, British taxpayer funded BBC and Mr. Wood have been advancing the RussiaGate Narrative almost from the beginning, in the weeks before Trump’s inauguration, leading up to the presentation to the President elect of the ‘dirty dossier’ by ‘ex’ MI6 agent Christopher Steele, and the planned leaking of it to Buzzfeed (now facing along with Steele, multiple lawsuits for libel). Then Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and FBI Director James Comey justified briefing Trump on the dossier by saying they were aware CNN was working on the story, which makes Clapper’s hiring by the same news network he almost certainly leaked the dossier to appear to be a corrupt transaction.
More recently, Mr. Wood reported — without presenting any evidence to contradict strong denials from Kiev — that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen was bribed by the Ukrainians in return for a 2017 White House photo op meeting between President Petro Poroshenko and POTUS. Despite his disgraceful track record of simply reporting rumors and innuendo (if not calculated British intelligence smears of Trump) as fact under a BBC byline, Mr. Wood’s Spectator article is important for three reasons…Read More
Two events of the day point the way for how the New Silk Road paradigm is the means to overcome what is currently being whipped up in the Trans-Atlantic as inevitable, insoluble strife: the migrant crisis and trade war.
In the Americas, Bolivian President Evo Morales met in Beijing today with President Xi Jinping, and signed commitments for Belt and Road collaboration between Bolivia and China. Morales said it will mean economic development and peace throughout the continent. Also in China, is a delegation from the Dominican Republic, conferring on economic projects and business in the Caribbean. Generalized across Ibero-America, this activity--along with defeating the narco-criminals--can end the poverty and danger driving millions to flee their homelands. At present, 200 million out of the 650 million-plus people in Ibero-America and the Caribbean live in poverty, which can all be changed.
Secondly, the Japanese government is now working on specifics for first-ever cooperation with China on joint ventures in third countries, under the Belt and Road framework. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe this week spoke of how Japan's "infrastructure exports" can be done on a collaborative basis. A task force is at work on selecting priority projects. This is a powerhouse arrangement.

The summit just accomplished in Singapore has already changed the relations of nations in Asia for the better, showed President Donald Trump's unusual leadership capacity, and should be changing the way Europeans and Americans look at what is possible. The very real potential is now emerging for an early summit of Presidents Trump and Putin, absolutely critical to ending 15 years' continuous disasters of war in Southwest Asia and North Africa. And there can be more "game-changers" — no crisis situation is fixed at this moment, if citizens and leaders will move optimistically for peace and mutual economic development.
Above all, this is a time when many should be joining with the Schiller Institute and LaRouche Political Action Committee, who for decades since the Berlin Wall fell, have held the torch for a "new paradigm" of economic and scientific progress and peace. What is happening in Asia through the New Silk Road and the Korea summits, can "break out" in Europe and the United States if there are any forceful leaders for cooperation of major nations' cooperation — as President Trump has shown he is.
Helga Zepp-LaRouche's call for an EU summit next week which actually solves the migrant crisis there — by European nations joining China in the economic development of Africa — is now circulating internationally in many languages; now the same solution has been proposed in China's Global Times newspaper. Her call should go out far and wide, to trigger action, and action now.Read More
On June 15, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his 565-page report on the FBI and Justice Department Hillary Clinton email investigation. President Trump and various supporters have expressed outrage that Horowitz did not go further in frying former FBI Director James Comey or declaring the obvious political bias he otherwise documents in the the Clinton investigation. These are legitimate issues and there is a legitimate question as to whether Horowitz softened the language in his report because of Justice Department pushback. These issues will be fully explored when the IG testifies in Congressional hearings next week. Nonetheless, the report is a bombshell even if written in carefully parsed Justice Department lawyer language. If we were not in the middle of an insurrection against the Trump presidency, it would cause an immediate halt to Robert Mueller’s investigation.Read More
RogueMoney contributor and weekly RM radio show regular Harley Schlanger was published this week by the prestigious Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC)’s online journal.

The transformation of “Russiagate” into “Spygate”, underscores that it was the United Kingdom, through its various intelligence units that "meddled" in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections. The mainstream U.S. media are attempting to cover-up for that operation, by reducing "Spygate" to a semantic debate over whether deploying operatives into the Trump campaign is "spying", "infiltration," a necessary defense against Russian aggression, or a figment of Trump's “paranoia”. The story is complicated, but enough facts have now emerged, that it can be stated definitively, that there was a joint operation by Anglo-American intelligence, designed to entrap Trump campaign officials, through a classic "sting" operation.
Key to this are three operatives with ties to the CIA, FBI and MI6 — Joseph Mifsud, Alexander Downer and Stefan Halper. These three were deployed to manipulate low-level Trump officials Carter Page and George Papadopoulos into believing they would be working with Russian intelligence networks, which wanted to help Trump, to establish links which could then be cited as channels of Russian influence into the Trump campaign.Read More

As of this writing, the U.S. media has its knickers in a complete knot because of “Spygate,” the scandal evolving from the President of the United States exercising his constitutional powers to declassify secret intelligence documents bearing on the completely illegal investigation of his 2016 presidential campaign by the Obama White House, Obama’s intelligence chiefs, and their masters in the City of London.
In the view of the Anglo-American establishment, Trump is once again being insubordinate, refusing to be told what to do, unlike every American President since the death of FDR, with the exception of John F. Kennedy. So-called “experts” have been trotted out to sniff about “unsubstantiated,” “baseless” and “wild,” accusations, and “conspiracy theories,” propagated by the “unhinged” President of the United States. He aims, they say, to undermine the “rule of law,” which, according to them, emanates solely from the personage of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. These experts are taking their cues from former DNI James Clapper and Obama’s CIA Chief John Brennan and include numerous former staffers for Special Counsel Robert Mueller when he was at the FBI, who have become official commentators on CNN and other cable ventures. As we shall show you below, this amounts to letting the future inmates run the institution. They warn how dangerous and illegal the President is being in demanding that the “independent” Justice Department submit to oversight by the Congress and how dictatorial he has become by asserting that the President of the United States can declassify documents about a coup being run against his presidency. Turning Abe Lincoln on his head, they seem to think they can fool all the people, all the time.Read More
The failure of the Mueller fishing expedition, now facing ridicule from the dreaded ‘Russian troll farm’s American defense attorneys in the federal courts and frantically shifting goalposts from investigating ridiculous allegations of colluding with the Kremlin to any Trump campaign adviser meetings with all foreigners (including U.S. allies the Israelis, Saudis, Qataris and Emiratis); the question posed by Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Charles Grassley (R-IA) regarding Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein illegally deputizing FISA authority to Mueller; the exposure of CIA/MI6 asset Stefan Halper as ‘the professor’ identified in a Daily Caller story back in March 2018, confirmed this weekend by panicked leaks to deep state mouthpieces at The New York Times and Washington Post — all of these developments have Trump supporters speculating that the reckoning with evildoers is finally at hand…Read More
Some very interesting things happened headed into this weekend in Washington as the soft coup against President Donald Trump continues to unravel. First and foremost, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III questioned whether special counsel Robert Mueller exceeded the remit of his investigation into supposed Russian meddling in the 2016 election, by indicting Paul Manafort for alleged money laundering and failing to register as a foreign agent for Ukraine — offenses that took place well before Manafort briefly served as Trump’s campaign chairman. In unusually scathing language, the judge asked whether Mueller’s indictments were simply a legal pretext to compel Manafort into testifying against Trump. While any ruling by Ellis in favor of Manafort’s petition to dismiss the charges will surely be appealed, the mainstream media hyped impeccability and competency of Mueller’s investigation was ripped to shreds by a Reagan appointed federal judge who’s served on the bench for decades.
More relevant to the D.C. swamp creatures who waged a vendetta of leaks and laundering fraudulent opposition research paid for by the Clinton camp and produced by a British spy into the U.S. intelligence agencies, the Democrat-friendly Time magazine had to admit a pending report from Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz is hanging like a thundercloud over an increasingly frustrated if not demoralized FBI. Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is facing charges of lying to investigators while trying to blame subordinates for the media leaks he coordinated, in order to distract attention from his wife accepting campaign cash from a Clinton operative. Speaking of lying to the FBI, the charge retired Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) director and briefly serving ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn plead guilty to, in testimony by then Director James Comey freshly released by Congressional Republicans, Comey doubted that Flynn actually sought to deceive federal agents. The topic of questioning at that time being Flynn’s perfectly legal and authorized by the incoming administration (and 100% recorded by the FBI and NSA) phone conversations with the then Russian Ambassador Sergey Kisylak. In other words, even though Flynn plead guilty and began cooperating with Mueller’s team after facing financial ruin, President Trump now has a stronger case for pardoning the general (whose son Mike Flynn Jr. maintains his innocence).Read More
Let us review: Every effort by the British to bring down the government of the United States under President Donald Trump has failed. MI6 agent Christopher Steele's dodgy dossier now stands exposed as the only basis for the launching of Trumpgate by the corrupt Obama intelligence team, and the perpetrators are themselves now facing criminal prosecution; the Skripal case has disappeared from the media, as the connections to the same Christopher Steele were coming to the fore; the Syrian chemical weapons fraud concocted by the British-run White Helmets has now been exposed internationally as a Nazi-like staged affair to justify a military assault. That assault, in which Trump was tricked into going along with the British and the French, effectively declared that the international law established after World War II, through the United Nations, to prevent another world war, was dead.
The Empire will not go quietly into the night. Bibi Netanyahu's antics — claiming "proof" that Iran is still developing nuclear weapons — is being ridiculed even by former Israeli intelligence officials as re-packaged news, already known by the IAEA, and proving nothing. But the British have always used the Israeli right-wing, and the Saudi Royal family, to provoke divisions and, when necessary, to start wars. With Trump having cooperated with Putin in defeating ISIS in Syria, and swearing that he wants to get the U.S. out of Syria altogether and "stop being the world's policeman," the British are desperately pulling every possible string to drag the U.S. into more wars.Read More
With each passing day, revelations are emerging which show that not only are the "news stories" proliferating in the media about Presidents Trump, Putin, Xi, and Syria's Assad full of lies, but come from London-directed networks, which are out to sabotage the potential for peace through development, which is the aim of the new "win-win" paradigm and is emerging with the New Silk Road global program. Associates of the Schiller Institute have been at the forefront in exposing these lies, while explaining their origin, in London, but also their cause: the rejection by these circles of the New Paradigm, which Helga Zepp LaRouche has played a leading role in bringing into existenceRead More

March 2—It is not exactly a secret that so-called neo-conservatives in the U.S. State Department and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), in conjunction with "left-wing" speculator and City of London operative George Soros, collaborated in the regime change coup in Ukraine in February 2014, which overthrew the democratically-elected government of Viktor Yanukovic. Former Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasian Affairs, the unabashed neocon Victoria Nuland, bragged that the U.S. and related agencies, such as the NED, spent $5 billion to lay the groundwork for the coup.
What is not generally known, however, due to the lying coverage in the Trans-Atlantic "Fake News" media, is that included in this unholy alliance of coup plotters were armed militia units made up of neo-Nazis, who were responsible for the bloodshed on Maidan Square in Kiev, and which threatened the ethnic Russians, which constitute the majority of the population in the eastern Ukraine regions of Donetsk and Luhansk. The lie that there was no neo-Nazi involvement has been maintained, despite ample evidence to the contrary, including interviews with militants pronouncing admiration for Hitler's collaborators in the Bandera movement in Ukraine during World War II, when Ukrainian units murdered ethnic Poles, Russians, and other "non-Ukrainians", including Ukrainian Jews. The armed "Banderistas" and related thugs have been incorporated into the security apparatus of the Kiev regime, and continue to march in the halls of Parliament and on the streets, under banners with pictures of Bandera, the Nazi collaborator, and symbols going back to their alliance with the Nazi SS.Read More
Feb. 20, 2018 (EIRNS)—The coup crowd is pretty much making things up as they go. Indicative is Rep. Adam Schiff’s response to Robert Mueller’s indictment of the 13 Russians, to he effect of: well, this set of indictments may not have shown Trump "collusion," but just you wait—maybe the next ones will.
The Boston Herald today joined the New York Times and Yale Law School’s Media Freedom & Information Access Clinic in calling for the FISA court to declassify the Obama administration’s application for a surveillance order on Carter Page and the FISA Court order, wishfully hoping that the Steele dossier was not the only basis for the surveillance order. In any case, the Herald editorial staff concluded:
"To continue to keep the FBI’s warrant application secret at this point and in a case where there is intense public interest is counterproductive. It’s high time for a dose of sunlight on this case."
Sunday's thorough indictment of the FBI by New York judge and former prosecutor Jeanine Pirro was needed, and completely accurate as far as she went. America does not need, and should not have, such a Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Since its creation under Anglophile President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt in 1908, at British instigation, the role of the FBI has been to delude Americans as to who their adversaries and enemies were, not to fight crime.
Its first job was to tar and feather "Russian and Eastern European reds"; then to arrest, exile, or kill American leaders who did not believe in 1915 that the United States should go to war with Germany. Then it was East European "reds" again, and dossiers to blackmail Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy (as well as JFK's brother Attorney General Robert Kennedy) against detente with Russia; harassment, surveillance, arrests and murders to destroy the Civil Rights movement. And then the post-J.Edgar Hoover "modern era" of making serial murderers into FBI informants and protected witnesses, including protecting the Saudi accessories before-and-after-the-fact to the 9/11 attacks.

Feb. 9 -- Recent events in the ongoing "Russiagate" saga in the United States fully confirm what Lyndon and Helga Zepp LaRouche said when the anti-Trumpers first began peddling the "Russia meddled/Trump colluded" fairy tale about the 2016 presidential election: It is not Russia, they charged, but the British who attempted to rig the election, colluding with the Obama intelligence agency leaders and the Hillary Clinton campaign to defeat Donald Trump. To end the coup danger, they added, the British must be exposed, and their operations in the United States must be permanently shut down. With the release of memos in the last week, by Republican Representative Devin Nunes and Senators Grassley and Graham, focused on the pivotal role of "former" MI6 operative Christopher Steele in the attempted coup against President Donald Trump, there is no longer any doubt that the LaRouches were right.
An article published February 7 on the Sic Semper Tyrannis blog of former intelligence officer Pat Lang echoes what the LaRouches have been saying since Trump's election. The article, by a blogger under the name Publius Tacitus, is titled "Did British Intelligence Try to Destroy the Trump Presidency?"Read More
