Exonerate LaRouche! Assange, Snowden Pardons Can Expose Russiagate Hoax
Dec. 18, 2020 (EIRNS)—Today the Schiller Institute statement, “Exonerate LaRouche! Assange, Snowden Pardons Can Expose Russiagate Hoax” was posted for wide circulation, to further mobilization in support of urgent action by President Donald Trump. There are other calls coming forth as well.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) wrote an opinion column in The Federalist, titled, “President Trump Should Pardon Edward Snowden.” He gave many reasons for this, saying, “Snowden is not a traitor. He is a true whistleblower who was trying to expose those like Clapper who used Deep State power in secret to go after Americans.”
In the United Kingdom, former Ambassador Craig Murray called for President Trump to pardon Julian Assange, emphasizing that “the people really pressing for Julian’s extradition and pressing for Julian to be prosecuted for espionage ... are exactly the same people pressing the false Russiagate narrative. So Donald Trump has a powerful motive to go against these people and counteract their influence” by pardoning Assange. Murray was interviewed on an RT program Dec. 18, covering the newly released 2011 audio tape of a conversation between Assange and a State Department attorney, which had been entered in court proceedings in London this fall against Assange, and released this week through efforts of Project Veritas, a group also active in the U.S. against vote fraud. The recording documents that Assange contacted the U.S. State Department, about a rogue ex-WikiLeaks employee whom Assange had fired, who was preparing to leak classified U.S. diplomatic files he took with him. Assange initiated the contact in order to inform the State Department and offer to mitigate any harm the miscreant might be expected to do. The State Department refused to follow this up. This 1.25 hour-long tape provides “absolutely overwhelming evidence against the U.S. case [against Assange] in its entirety,” said the current head of WikiLeaks, Kristinn Hrafnsson.
On the central question of the exoneration of Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr, the new Schiller Institute statement makes clear the point of why he was so targeted: he was the 20th century’s leading enemy of Malthusian depopulation. LaRouche warned that, behind the green façade, the bankers’ dictatorship was out to extinguish the means to life, and cause mass death.
This grim intent was on full display in the U.S. today, at a Washington D.C.-based virtual event titled, “The Financial System and Climate Change—a Regulatory Imperative.” The discussion centered on how fast bankers’ orders could be imposed to de-carbonize—that is destroy—U.S. and world modern agro-industry, infrastructure, trade and social care, in the name of fighting “climate change.” The occasion for the event was that on Dec. 15, the U.S. Federal Reserve Board officially joined the “Network for Greening the Financial System” (NGFT) the world club of central bankers established in 2017 by Mark Carney, former Bank of England governor, and now UN envoy for Climate Action and Finance. Representatives from all the top U.S. financial institutions gave glowing green testimonials—Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Securities and Exchange Commission, Commodity Futures Trading Organization, and the New York State Department of Financial Services. Federal Reserve Governor Leal Brainard praised how the U.S., which had been the only major nation, along with India, not a member of the NGFT, now could “step up and give world leadership” on orders for only green investment.
It is notable that the platform for this was provided by the Center for American Progress, whose founder and chairman John Podesta—long a green Rasputin for the Clinton/Obama camp, spoke today on the necessity of green finance. He is notorious for his own, unprosecuted crimes in the 2016 election process, in which his illicit Hillary Clinton emails were exposed.
This green finance push is the context in which to understand and fight what is behind the huge and deep operation to subvert the 2020 election. On that battlefront, some of the latest developments include that in Georgia, authorities have announced they will conduct a statewide audit of voter signatures (random sample review). In Michigan a state senator group is exerting its subpoena power to obtain machines, records and other material in certain precincts showing patterns of irregularities and fraud.
The dramatic irony that comes out, when looking at this green madness and lawlessness in the world, is that there are striking examples of scientific advance that show how humanity could be on a sure course for advancement. The “sky is not falling!” For example, today came the announcement by Japan that its spacecraft Hayabusa2 has succeeded in connecting with the asteroid Ryugu, where it scooped up 5.4 grams of particles for analysis. The scientists had a goal of just a tenth of a gram as a mark of success; they are ecstatic. In China, the Chang’e-5 capsule which brought back Moon material is now on display in Beijing, amidst great excitement and pride, as when the Moon rocks first went on display in the U.S.
The new Schiller Institute statement concludes its call to action, by bringing together all aspects of our mobilization: “Only a vigorous campaign on behalf of justice in all forms—electoral justice, economic justice, defense of the right to know—can save the United States, the trans-Atlantic world, or the world as a whole. These next days before us give us a chance to not merely demand, but secure that justice. Action in these three cases—pardons in the cases of Assange and Snowden, and exoneration for Lyndon LaRouche—are the direct path to securing justice for all citizens throughout the world, and in every country. They are the path to justice for the President of the United States as well. Fiat Justitia ruat caelum —‘let justice be done, though the heavens fall.’ Now, in these next days, justice given, is justice gained.”
