Mrs. Boyd’s 50-minute live webcast interview with Matthew Ogden on Saturday, November 16 provides the latest update with video documentation, and is available here.

Nov. 15—On LaRouche PAC’s Fireside Chat, on November 14, our analysis was presented of the shameless impeachment charade that occurred Wednesday, November 13, in the House of Representatives. We emphasized that which passed by most people unnoticed, as being its most significant event and will continue to provide updates.

Two State Department bureaucrats, George Kent, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs (since Sept. 4, 2018), and William B. Taylor, Jr., Acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine (since Nov. 2019), inculcated with the British imperial view of the world, defended that view as being central to the entire post-war “order,” and portrayed the President of the United States as a bumbling uninformed character who would topple that glorious order solely for some personal gain. One of them, George Kent, went so far as to portray the neo-Nazi thugs used by the British and the Obama Administration to conduct the 2013-2014 coup in Ukraine, as equivalent to the Minutemen of our Revolution, and U.S. aid to keep the war in Ukraine going, as in the tradition of Lafayette and von Steuben.

Then, within one paragraph, Kent was praising his old professor Zbigniew Brzezinski, and Henry Kissinger, as paragons of virtue—whose 21st Century doppelgängers were the key State Department witnesses now testifying against the President.

Democrats fell all over themselves in fawning praise of this “legacy.” Republicans were afraid to touch it; most of the Senators who will vote on the President’s impeachment are up to their ears in supporting it. Ukraine’s viability for years to come has been ruined in a blood-soaked ethnic cleansing occurring in the Donbas in the wake of the 2014 coup, conducted by neo-Nazis. Most of the thousands lost were citizens of Eastern Ukraine of Russian heritage and inclinations.

Yet, Rep. Adam Schiff, his witnesses George Kent and William Taylor lied outright about this, portraying the dead as brave Ukrainians fighting Russia. Our State Department calls the coup and the ensuing war in Eastern Ukraine, the “Revolution of Dignity.”

Together, Kissinger and Brzezinski are guilty of more war crimes and genocides than perhaps anyone in the 20th Century, and in doing so they created many of the axiomatic views of the world propounded enthusiastically by Kent and Taylor yesterday, to the applause of House Democrats. As Sen. Rand Paul will tell you, he, in the Senate, is like the President, an island of one when it comes to issues of war and peace.

For those who confidently predict that impeachment will die in the Senate—have you looked at your Senators’ contributors lately, or the sins that can be dredged up from their past life, to spring up in a moment of crisis? Do you understand who you are actually fighting?

The Alternative to Thermonuclear War

Tucker Carlson ventured out to take this on directly in his show on Nov. 13, putting up clips of Donald Trump speaking during 2016, saying simply, “Wouldn’t it be nice if we all got along with Russia?” That, and the fevered opposition to it by those who cling to the past, and to their own graft in the intelligence community and foreign policy apparatus, constitute the real battle lines in the ongoing coup, Carlson said. Donald Trump promised to end the permanent warfare state; his voters voted for him to do that. But, Tucker then fell into his stupid rants about China.

Nonetheless, on Nov. 14, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, once again struggling to keep her dentures in her mouth and noting that she could no longer chew gum, instantaneously confirmed exactly what Carlson had said. “Trump is an agent of Putin,” she told her press availability, explaining what impeachment has been and is all about. Ray McGovern, in an article in Consortium News, presented a short and accurate sketch of U.S. and British perfidy in Ukraine, the policy which the two idiots who testified yesterday are responsible for enforcing. McGovern neglected to note the obvious point: that pursuit of the policy outlined by Kent, that is, Ukrainian membership in NATO, is a hair trigger for the nuclear war that could annihilate us all.

The process undertaken in the House to date, is rigged in ways not stated so far. There will be more “bombshell” surprises, since we are witnessing an internal coup, with the British and their U.S. intelligence community allies determined to unseat this President by waging war from within the Administration. As Mark Zaid, the so-called whistleblower’s attorney, said in his infamous texts, when one internal seditionist falls, “two will rise in their place.” And the biggest potential surprise is something neither the Republican nor Democratic partisans understand—the dynamic within the world’s physical economy which appears to be approaching another boundary condition, at least as perceived by the Bank of England’s Mark Carney and others, who propose a bankers’ dictatorship to handle the coming new collapse.

Lyndon LaRouche said the economy will fail because it is not a productive economy by design; it is incapable of reproducing itself at the higher levels necessary for sustained growth, which requires leaps in productivity. He said in October of 2001:

I understand how a systemic collapse unfolds, as opposed to a stock-market prediction, which every idiot likes to talk about. Idiots say, “Why don’t you make a prediction? A statistical prediction.” I say, “I don’t make predictions. I make forecasts, which are based on the systemic characteristics and the boundary conditions within which the system operates. . . .”

The President’s most effective flank on this entire matter, is found in the “Four Laws to Save the USA Now,” set forth by LaRouche to address a collapse of the world system. Those same Four Laws, if undertaken as organizing principles by Donald Trump, would flank the entire coup apparatus, because sustainable economic recovery and growth would be underway. Educating and organizing for this must be our highest priority now.
