Biden’s Notion of ‘Unity’ Disunites the United States
Jan. 22 , 2021 (EIRNS)—“What we will see in the next period, in the next weeks and months, and this year, will be a complete clash of ideology with reality,” Helga Zepp-LaRouche stated on Friday. “While these people think they have it all wrapped up now—with a United States government that will go for the Green New Deal, with the EU Commission going for the Green Deal, with the whole central bank plan for regime change—I think what we will see is that their plans are as unworkable as they are evil.” Why?
“Because you cannot on the one hand declare half of the U.S. population a ‘domestic terrorist movement’ and at the same time try to implement policies worldwide, or at least in the so-called Western world plus the developing sector, which would mean the elimination of millions and millions, if not hundreds of millions of people, without this policy completely crashing against the wall. And I think we should tell people that, because this is going to be the problem in many aspects.”
Zepp-LaRouche detailed the situation in the United States, just a couple of days after the inauguration, “where you had this really eerie display of no audience but altogether more than 40,000 troops of various kinds ... and the absolutely horrible spectacle of the lowest possible pop culture you could assemble, for which Lady Gaga was the sad incarnation; and then Biden’s speech, which, if you would just listen to it, sounds very nice, calling for unity and so forth, but if you look at the policies, there is no way there will be unity in the country.”
For example, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey told the Australian ABC network’s “7.30” TV program that the Republican Party doesn’t stand for anything that is valuable, that it is just another “cult of personality around a man who is a demagogue and a liar.” He said the “Republican Party has to be burned to the ground in some form or fashion,” before it can be rebuilt.
Zepp-LaRouche pointed out that this language “doesn’t sound very healing” and neither does that of Juliette Kayyem, Obama’s Assistant Secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs in the Department of Homeland Security, who said one day before the inauguration in an interview, “I don’t feel comfortable calling Trump a terrorist just because I think that then we are going to get into that debate. But it is important to say that he’s the spiritual and operational leader of a domestic terrorist movement.”
What is the new Biden Administration doing? He signed 17 Executive Orders, one of them being to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, and today White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki announced that Biden would seek a five-year extension of the New START Treaty, essentially signaling that he would take up Putin’s offer. But this offer was made with aggressive language saying that this natural extension of the only arms control treaty existing between the U.S. and Russia was made necessary because of Moscow’s increasingly “adversarial behavior.” It was also announced that the U.S. intelligence community would be asked to provide an assessment on the SolarWinds hack (blamed on Russia), interference in the 2020 election, the accusations that Russia poisoned opposition figure Navalny, and the story of Russian bounties paid to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Although Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Anatoly Antonov was invited to the inauguration, Biden has yet to speak with President Vladimir Putin. Rejoining the JCPOA arrangement with Iran has also been discussed, but Biden’s new Secretary of State insists that it may have to change due to advances Iran made following the U.S. withdrawal from the agreement.
“Now, Prince Charles launched what he calls a ‘Terra Carta,’ an ‘Earth Charter for Nature, People and the Planet,’ which is absolutely unbelievable. It basically says humanity is the problem, it has done incredible damage to the planet already, and it is really unbelievably cynical and shows that this idea of the Green Agenda is completely Satanic. But it will not work. In the next days, three days from now the ‘Davos Agenda’ virtual summit will start. It will be addressed by many heads of state, and therefore it will not be a coherent outlook ... I think it will be a mixed affair. But they will have the full agenda of the Great Reset.”
The attempts to achieve the Green goals it envisions must necessarily result in failure. Already Germany has blackouts due to its closure of nuclear and coal plants, and increased reliance on intermittent (and low energy-flux density) sources such as solar and wind. To introduce electric vehicles en masse would require a power infrastructure that is simply impossible with these retrograde technologies. Again, ideology will run into reality.
The threat of new strains of the coronavirus, which may evade the defenses conferred by present vaccines, should make us all aware of the global nature of health. If the pandemic continues to rage in areas of the world without the financial means to pay for, or produce vaccines, is any part of the world truly safe? India and South Africa are discussing with the WTO the transfer of knowledge and patents to allow greater production of vaccines. We truly need a health care system for everyone.
“I think that in the coming period, it will be very clear that the Green Deal is not going to work, that you cannot deindustrialize the industrial nations of the United States or North America and Europe, and that therefore we should go with an absolute push for Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Laws and we should go back to the idea that only the nations of the world, the most important industrial nations of the world must work together to address the pandemic, a modern health system in every single country, and that that must be the starting point of overcoming the underdevelopment of the developing countries. I think we have reached, in the history of mankind, an absolute branching point, where ideology is clashing with reality: If you go with the Green Deal there is no way you can eliminate the causes of this pandemic and other emerging diseases and pandemics which Lyndon LaRouche warned of since 1973, and unless you overcome these conditions what we are looking at is a plunge into a dark age and possible World War III. So it is high time that the full package of Lyn’s ideas, including the four power agreement, New Bretton Woods, credit system and the Four Laws must be implemented now. And we must absolutely build our movement and get more and more people, both in the United States and internationally to join that approach.”
