As We Enter the New Year:
The Clear and Present Danger of
the British Empire’s Coup
Based on Mrs. Boyd’s notes for her presentation on the LaRouche PAC Fireside Chat, December 26, 2019. She was joined on the program by William Binney, a former technical director of the National Security Agency who is now a member of the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS). The full discussion, lasting more than 90 minutes, including a wide-ranging question and answer segment, is available here. Subheads have been added.
As we enter the first week of the New Year, it is well to remember how dangerous and treacherous this coup against the American presidency actually is. The Senate, the battlefield to which the action is about to shift, has 53 Republicans, 45 Democrats, and 2 independents. Many of the Republicans are not allies of Donald Trump. They are wedded to the globalist and imperial war policies and ideas of the Bush and Obama regimes that this President, to their undying rage, continues to disrupt. While the two-thirds vote required for removal from office is not there, there is plenty of room to play havoc with the rules and procedures of the Senate trial using the anti-Trump Republicans. Moreover, not dismissing the impeachment outright for the fraud it is, continues to delegitimize the U.S. Presidency at a most critical time in world history.
Forcing the President to bargain with these Senators, allowing them to continue to demonstrate their independence through such permanent warfare policies as the recent National Defense Authorization Act, creates the appearance that the President is not in control of U.S. policy. And it is not an accident that Ukrainegate was set into motion the day after the previous stage of the coup collapsed with Robert Mueller’s disastrous appearance in the Congress. The very process of keeping this attack alive in the Senate encourages the traitors in our midst to act, because they believe they are protected by Washington’s most corrupt legislative body. In short, allowing the coup to continue is a clear and present danger, and we should be telling everyone we talk to that this impeachment nonsense should be ended now and decisively, so that we might concentrate on this nation’s and the world’s future.
I am told there is a powerful revulsion now, out there in the population, to this impeachment and the coup, as people can’t stand it while they struggle to get healthcare, struggle against an epidemic of drugs and suicides, struggle to make ends meet, and recognize that the coup is limiting the President’s ability to act on their behalf.
The Surveillance State
Now there have been some extremely useful elements coming forth. What I am going to emphasize is the issue of culture, and this movement’s unique role of educating the population about physical economy—classical culture and the science of physical economy are the twin pillars upon which to build a new political movement based on the ideas of Lyndon LaRouche. And that movement, particularly the component of a new youth movement, is essential in 2020, right now in the new year which is approaching, a year that, because of our Presidential election and the mass strikes against globalization occurring throughout the world, presents itself as a turning point in human history.
Joe diGenova, the former U.S. Attorney for Washington, D.C., gave an interview on Monday morning, Dec. 23, in which he said that U.S. Attorney John Durham, examining the origins of the coup against the President, is spending lots of time with Mike Rogers, who used to be the head of the National Security Agency (NSA). DiGenova says the broader story of Russiagate is that Barack Obama, in 2012, undertook to create a complete surveillance regime, explicitly targeting anyone who might upset Obama Administration policies in the Presidential election of 2016, and that Mike Rogers has the goods on it, and is providing the information to Durham. Obviously, Donald Trump was the major and most consequential target of this surveillance, but it went way beyond that. Larry Johnson, a former CIA analyst, had earlier reported the same shocking fact.
A significant addition to the surveillance policy occurred in October of 2015, when John Brennan created a cyberwar unit within the CIA, the Directorate of Digital Innovation. And, as Larry Johnson has reported, there is plenty of reason to believe that this unit created the personas “DCLeaks” and “Guccifer 2.0,” to camouflage the fact that the documents published by WikiLeaks from the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta in June and October of 2016 were the result of an internal leak, not a Russian hack over the internet. Instead, John Brennan’s false flag creations, these two internet personas, created a fake cyber trail pointing graphically to a Russian GRU author, and thus brought Russiagate, which was already in full bloom in Britain, to the United States.
As we have written, Christopher Steele, operating at the highest levels of British intelligence, preceded his war with Donald Trump by blaming Brexit on cyber manipulations by the Russians, in papers he wrote in the early part of 2016. Steele represented the terrified, incompetent, and thoroughly reckless response of the world’s elites to the end of globalization represented by Brexit and by Donald Trump’s campaign and election.
Now, why did Obama initiate this latest and most crude iteration of the surveillance regimes dating from 9/11? Mass surveillance remains a huge, compelling, and cultural problem here. The New York Times just ran a series, “One Nation, Tracked,” showing how, once you accede to location apps on your smart phone, your every movement is tracked by Silicon Valley; you have volunteered yourself to be a surveillance subject, just like Carter Page became one through that fake FISA warrant.
Dr. Robert Epstein has demonstrated, to Congress and elsewhere, that Silicon Valley, Google, et al. literally control, through artificial intelligence, 2.6 million to 10.4 million votes, the margin of the popular vote in 2016. Now that everyone knows which states determine the outcome, and Silicon Valley—as well as the British House of Lords—have declared that Trump must be defeated at all costs, what do you imagine they are doing now?
Obama Targets Political Opponents
But, again, let’s go back to 2012. When you look at the year 2012, when Obama started targeting all of the potential political opponents of his programs, certain strategic facts hit you over the head, so to speak. Lyndon LaRouche characterized 2012 as the beginning of a final march to war with Russia and China, beginning with the 2011 NATO bombing of Libya and the assassination of its head of state, Muammar al-Qaddafi. At or around the same time, in 2011, NATO countries called upon Syria’s President Bashir al-Assad to step down and resign in the wake of the City of London-orchestrated protests dubbed the Arab Spring, first imposing sanctions, and then beginning a bombing campaign, and threatening all-out war with Syria by August of 2012. That war proposal was based on a NATO false flag operation which had Assad “using chemical weapons against his own people.”
When the British Parliament blocked British participation in NATO’s planned escalations toward all-out war in Syria, and the U.S. Congress got cold feet as the result of a popular uproar in the population here, Obama backed off. But, he continued to use actual terrorists, the predecessors of ISIS and the remnants of Al Qaeda, as the shock troops for regime change against Assad. Through all of this, Iran was also a constant target in a surrogate warfare campaign, aimed at mercenary wars on the borders of Russia and China, just as LaRouche outlined in his epic 1999 national television documentary, Storm Over Asia.
Then in 2014, NATO, a front for the British since World War II, in complicity with Barack Obama’s State Department, Brennan’s CIA, the National Endowment for Democracy, George Soros, and the British Foreign Office, captured Ukraine, which Carl Gershman of the NED had been describing in the pages of the Washington Post as the ultimate prize in waging Cold War 2.0 against the Russians.
Like the terrorists deployed under the U.S. flag in Syria, in Ukraine that nation’s longstanding Stepan Bandera Nazis were used as the shock troops for regime change. This set off a civil war, which pioneered new uses of cyber and whole-of-nation propaganda warfare, both to control the captured Ukrainian population and to use the new base to conduct propaganda operations against Russia directly. That Joe Biden, who performed the role of modern-day British viceroy for Obama in Ukraine, managed to place his coke-addled son in position to profit to the tune of millions, is really only a secondary aspect of this corruption story. Right now, the neo-Nazis we empowered are actively preventing Ukraine’s new President from pursuing peace or an end to oligarchical corruption, the policies Ukrainians overwhelmingly voted for in their March/April 2019 elections.
Similarly, the “whole of nation” black propaganda techniques first employed in Ukraine have been brought home in the coup against Donald Trump in the United States, in which repetitive, negative, and false media are the primary instrument.
March to War Interrupted
Three developments interrupted and destabilized this march to war begun in 2012: In 2016, Donald Trump won election in the United States and Britain voted to exit the European Union, striking a massive blow against the globalist regime supported by Obama and his British masters. Prior to that, President Vladimir Putin had intervened strategically throughout the world to halt the course toward World War; and China in 2013 began a massive effort to develop infrastructure throughout the world in the Belt and Road Initiative, providing an island of strategic stability and a flank against the sanctions regimes used by the globalists to cripple target economies. At the same time, they declared an actual war on poverty, uplifting millions and providing a beacon of hope for the world’s dispossessed.
Now Lyndon LaRouche also said that this march to war, commencing in 2012, was really the result of the financial collapse which manifested itself in 2007-2008, and the intellectual and cultural inability of a decadent elite class throughout the world to imagine doing anything differently than they had been doing prior to the collapse.
True, they had managed to stitch together and hold the line on a false narrative about the causes of the collapse—no one could have foreseen it; it was a historical accident for which the massive cash bailout provided a remedy; populations had come to expect too much; and even then, back in 2010-2012, they were saying that a Green New Deal policy would produce thousands of needed jobs if people only had patience to transition from the “old” to the “new” economy.
Further, LaRouche said that the new regime of endless wars and green economic austerity regimes was really but the latest stage of a population reduction policy first engineered by Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski in the late 1970s and early 1980s at the behest of Prince Phillip and the Anglo-Dutch establishment. He noted that the decadent elites promoting these policies believe, ultimately, that nuclear war can be won and will be beneficial to their cause, reducing the world’s population to levels their bankrupt economic ideas can support and control. They simply do not know how to create an economy which can reproduce itself at higher and higher levels of economic development, and they oppose this idea because it would mean the realization of a truly human creation, not one run by corrupt elites or oligarchs.
Building a Strategic Leap into the Future
In the New Year, with what LaRouche was saying then about the decadence, incompetence, and murderous intent of these elites, now becoming widely recognized—the population clearly recognizes that the Emperor has no clothes, while the Emperor, at the same time, continues to assert the right to rob them blind. Now, we have a huge chance to change all of this, to reverse the entire decadent course of the last 50 years on this planet—a course which, if continued in any respect, spells doom. And, given the actual physical state of the economy, surveying the skill and education set of the population—which is the driver of any economic renaissance—there is only one path to sustained survival, not immediate survival, but sustained survival.
That path lies in building—right now—the economy of the future, making the strategic leap into a fusion energy-powered economic development program, and expanding the Moon-Mars mission which this President has announced, while talking to Russia, China, India and other full-set economies about reorganizing the world’s financial system to fund joint projects at the frontiers of science. It also lies in classical culture, in the type of music and drama that can enable a culture to actively reflect on its present mental outlook, and the state of its development, or the flaws in that development—the music exemplified by Beethoven and the dramas of Shakespeare and Schiller.
As you look at the flat world presented by Hollywood and popular culture, recognize that it is a world that holds no nuance, no irony, no metaphor, and only slap-stick humor. In that flat political world, stick figure Manichean warriors rage in wars conducted solely in the present, shifting their roles as black or white knights. That world is really nothing other than a video game with no palette of actual human emotions or thoughts.
It is a world which poets, the actual legislators of the world, can readily defeat, by launching, and maintaining, a superior culture in which any president can prevail against all foes by outlining and setting into motion a compelling vision of the future, a mission orientation that touches and moves the imaginations of the population. It is no accident that when the President spoke at the recent youth conference, Turning Point USA, his remarks about the Space Force received absolutely the most enthusiastic and lasting applause, more than anything else, and the President himself noted that extremely significant fact.
It is also a path that would end the entire system of mass surveillance, outlawing such abuses as the FISA Court and EO 12333, and substituting the rational security regime of Bill Binney and others, in which criminals and terrorists can be caught without using the excuse of their existence to justify a totalitarian regime. With what we can now cause to be exposed, it is finally possible to do that. In addition, on the path we just outlined, individuals will create and change, killing the premise of all mass surveillance—that human beings’ fixed habits and fixed modes of being, expose the never-changing flaws through which they can be endlessly manipulated.
