LaRouche PAC’s webcast of Aug. 1, 2014 was hosted by Matthew Ogden, and joined by Dennis Small of EIR and Dennis Mason of LaRouche PAC. A significant focus of the discussion was the commitment of China to develop, as rapidly as possible, thermonuclear fusion energy, both for its own uses, and in collaboration with its partners around the world. China’s reinvigorated lunar program, which is geared toward ultimately mining helium-3, is setting an example for the United States and the rest of the so-called developed world. In addition to the Chinese approach, LaRouche stated, “what Putin in Russia is now doing is also shocking to many people, but he is doing successful things, despite what others in the trans-Atlantic region are up to, and despite the international media campaign to vilify him.”
A number of additional subjects were discussed, among them: the looming bail-in of the entire trans-Atlantic sector, as the BRICS nations, joined by Ibero-America and much of Asia, move toward the creation of an entirely new international economic order.

Argentine cabinet Chief of Staff Jorge Capitanich slammed the U.S. government’s biased court officers, accurately characterizing Judge Griesa and Special Master Pollack as “agents of the vulture funds,” for their decision to declare Argentina in default. “Don’t come to us with the excuse that the judiciary is independent,” he said. What the United States is independent of “is rationality.”

The sanctions against Russia’s financial sector and energy companies adopted by the EU—with the agreement of the German government—hit Germany’s machine-building and medium-sized productive sector, the Mittelstand, particularly hard. They are part of a strategy of confrontation, which is preparing for nuclear war with Russia.

It is now more urgent than ever that President Obama be removed from office. The alternative is a growing likelihood that the British, through their White House pawn, will unleash such a direct provocation against Russia, and that the outcome will be thermonuclear World War III and certain extinction.

A 7,000-person rally in Pittsburgh, called by the United Mineworkers union to protest Obama’s war on coal, marked a dramatic line of resistance nationally against the destruction of the U.S. economy under the Obama Administration.

From his first use of fire, mankind could no longer be characterized biologically, or as existing in biological evolution: The evolution of the creative powers of the human mind became the determining factor, and biology decreased in importance, relative to the power of thought. Since then, the kernel of economic growth has been expressed in the control over successively higher forms of “fire.” Each such advance reflects a higher level of energy-flux density in the economy.
