LaRouche Plan Presented in Peru's Congress
LIMA, Dec. 15 (EIRNS)At the invitation of Congressman Aldo Estrada Chiroque, head of the Constitution and Rules Committee, EIR's Lima correspondent Luis Ernesto Vásquez Medina yesterday presented the "LaRouche Plan" for saving civilization from the collapse of globalization to a select audience gathered in the historic "Francisco Bolognesi" Room of the National Congress.
Businessmen, politicians, press, educators, and trade unions participating in the forum on "A Real Solution to the Worst Crisis in History" filled the room to its capacity of 100 people.
In introducing Vásquez, Estrada Chiroque emphasized that it is necessary to listen to those who know the true evolution of the current international crisis, and what solutions exist as an alternative.
Vásquez explained the origin and unfolding of the crisis, based on LaRouche's Triple Curve, in such a way that it was clear to those present that the world economy has become a casino. Vásquez, author of a groundbreaking history of the fight for American System of Economics in Mexico, detailed the LaRouche Plan to resolve the crisis from the standpoint of the substantial difference between that American System and the British system of looting.
Peru, located on the Pacific coast of South America, is situated to take advantage of the ongoing shift from an Atlantic-centered economy to one whose center of gravity is the Pacific, where more than two-thirds of the world's population resides, Váquez stressed. Just as the LaRouche movement in Peru had indicated in its 1990 program, Mercantilist Manifesto for an Industrial Peru, the density of transport of both people and goods in the Pacific region, underscores the urgency of launching the transcontinental integration of the southern part of the Americas. Vásquez gave a map briefing emphasizing Peru's geostrategic advantage for becoming South America's gateway to the Pacific Basin.
An animated discussion, including the implications of such ideas for the 2011 elections, followed the presentation, and similar forums were announced for the future.
Argentine President Targetted with Death Threats
Dec. 15 (EIRNS)As she was traveling by military helicopter on Dec. 11, Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner received death threats, when a voice interrupted radio communication between the helicopter and the control tower with the words "kill the mare" and "kill her." The voice repeated several obscenities, after which military music was played.
These threats have all the markings of an intelligence operation, taking place in the strategic context of global instability, caused by the breakdown of the world financial system. This is the environment in which an attempt on the life of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi occurred Dec. 14 in Milan. Threats to the Argentine President should also be seen in this light.
Chief of Staff Anibal Fernández said the government is taking these threats "extremely seriously," although he attributed them to "coup mongering" related to the beginning of a trial of 19 Army and Navy officers, charged with human rights atrocities during the 1976-83 military dictatorship.
Colombian Senate Dumps on Soros
Dec. 17 (EIRNS)Much to the horror of George Soros's dope lobby, on Dec. 10 the Colombian Senate voted 60-14 to ban drug possession and consumption for "personal use," reversing the Constitutional Court's 1991 ruling which made such acts legal on grounds that they contributed to the "free development of the personality."
The vote, which amends Colombia's Constitution, is a major victory for President Alvaro Uribe, the only Ibero-American head-of-state who hasn't succumbed to British agent Soros's lying assertion that anything except legalization is doomed to failure in the war on drugs.
"I thank the Senate for having taken this step in defense of the country," Uribe told Cadena Melodia on Dec. 10. "I believe that what we've seen in the world for many years is a process of drug legalization. Why? Because they've legalized consumption; and with legal consumption it's very difficult to deal with crops, cocaine production, trafficking, chemical precursors and money-laundering.... Consumption is at the root of everything."
The Colombian President vowed that with the new law, which must be approved by the Constitutional Court, the government would be able to pursue distributors of drugs for retail sales, who have operated with impunity to date, "even though they were poisoning Colombians with drugs, and pulling children and young people into this criminal business of drug distribution." Uribe also emphasized that the new law wouldn't punish the drug addict, but offer him treatment at a rehabilitation center.
Soros's outlets in Colombia and abroad are pulling out the stops against Uribe. Colombia's Semana magazine, run by the family of the deceased drug 'Godfather' Alfonso López Michelsen, went overboard in a Dec. 16 editorial charging that Uribe is resorting to "authoritarian" and "paternalistic" policies, typical of a fascist government.
Successful Strike at Mexican Cartel
Dec. 17 (EIRNS)The Mexican military now have in their possession the central financial files of the Beltran Leyva drug cartel, one of Mexico's biggest. The files were captured in a Navy commando assault yesterday on a luxury apartment building in the center of Cuernavacajust an hour from Mexico City. That cartel's kingpin, Arturo Beltran Leyva, was killed in the firefight. The success emphasizes what could be done against the drug trade, were the current British stranglehold on Mexico broken.
Brazilian Scientist Warns of 'Malthusian' Global Warming Hoax
Dec. 15 (EIRNS)Brazilian meteorologist Luiz Carlos Molion, director of the Institute of Atmospheric Science at the Federal University of Alagoas, and a specialist in paleoclimatology, is not afraid to take on the global warming fraud. Carbon dioxide (CO2) "is not the villain, or a polluter," Molion told UOL magazine in an interview published Dec. 13. "It is the gas of life.... When you double CO2, plant production increases." Moreover, he explained, "It's the Sun," not CO2, which determines the Earth's temperature. There is "no solid science" to prove that global warming even exists.
In 2008, Molion told Istoe magazine that it's quite possible that the population-reduction theories of Britain's genocidalist Thomas Malthus, "are being resuscitated and imposed through global warming...." It's impossible, he said, for man to produce enough carbon emissions to, in any way, affect the Earth's temperature.
By his own account, Molion, who is an Ibero-American representative to the World Meteorological Organization, is one of a growing number of Brazilian scientists who dispute what they call the "religion" of anthropogenic global warming. He admits that he's suffered reprisals as a result of his outspoken attacks on the climate hoaxters, but explains that when governments do that, "they hurt the nation and society, not me."
"There are many factors that affect global climate. Without exaggerating, I say that the Earth's climate is the result of everything that happens in the universe. If the dust of a supernova that exploded 15 million years ago is dense and passes between the Sun and the Earth, it is going to reduce the entry of solar radiation into the system and change the climate," Molion stated.
