EIR LEAD EDITORIAL FOR SATURDAY AUGUST 20, 2022
To Save the American Presidency, Do You Dare To Exonerate LaRouche?
Aug. 19, 2022 (EIRNS)—We must first start from what Dr. Martin Luther King referred to, alternately, as “the arc of the moral universe” and “the mountain-top,” to report the true progress of humanity’s “city-builders,” astronomers, and statesmen, in defiance of the merchants of Perfidious Albion, “Global NATO,” and “The dictatorship of democracies.” The international Schiller Institute counter-offensive against the NATO-orchestrated “Ukrainian” blacklisting of journalists, former and serving legislators, academics, trade unionists, whistleblowers and candidates saw breakthrough coverage in New Zealand, Italy, the United States and most notably Denmark, where the Danish foreign minister was required, in an open consultation, to answer questions about the blacklist for an hour. In Yemen, longtime friend of the Schiller Institute Fouad Al-Ghaffari was appointed Cabinet Adviser on BRICS Affairs to Prime Minister Abdel-Aziz Saleh bin Habtour, himself a co-signer of the call for an Ad Hoc Committee to form a New Bretton Woods financial system.
Today, Schiller Institute Founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche will be joined by India’s Sam Pitroda, a former cabinet minister and adviser to several Indian heads of state, and U.S. Senate independent candidate Diane Sare, in a celebration of the 75th anniversary of India’s independence, August 15,1947. That day, August 15, has another world-historical significance, in that it also marks the ending, by President Richard Nixon, of the Bretton Woods system, the destruction of the U.S. dollar, and the early emergence of economist Lyndon LaRouche, the only economist to successfully forecast that process, onto the world stage. Pitroda and Zepp-LaRouche will resume their dialogue about “India and the Emerging New World Architecture,” the subject of a speech that Pitroda gave at a Schiller online conference in April and June this year.
Today’s symposium intersects an important international sea-change, sometimes referred to as “the shift away from the ‘unipolar world’ policy.” The President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, has announced that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping will join him at the November 15 G20 Summit conference in Bali. Whether that will be in person or by live transmission remains to be determined. President Widodo may not yet realize it, and others may deny it, but the in-house presence of Putin and Xi at the G20 is only likely to occur in a world significantly transformed from the one we are in now. Widodo’s proposal, made in the present moment and involving the present configuration of world forces, that Putin and Xi attend “in the flesh,” is as implicitly disruptive to the military-triumphalist “Global NATO” status quo, as was that of President Sukharno in Indonesia’s hosting of the 1955 Bandung Conference.
The Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar of India, speaking to a group in Thailand, said that his nation, the largest democracy in the world, would, in effect, defy “Project Democracy” and purchase oil, gas and coal from Russia, rejecting the policy of “world” sanctions. Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has stated that with China, South Africa, Brazil, the Arab nations, and most of the African continent “not on board” with the sanctions policy, “It is quite possible that it will be this war that will demonstratively put an end to Western supremacy.”
Turning for a moment to “the world’s only superpower,” it must seem to many observers from other nations, looking in at the Fellini-like pageant of the morally clueless and criminally deranged that is presently marching across the stage of ostensible American political and financial institutions, that the words of Shakespeare’s Mark Anthony were as aptly spoken about the State, Defense and Justice Departments as they were regarding the Roman Senate’s assassins: “O Judgment! Thou art fled to brutish beasts, and men have lost their reason.”
The pummeling of Wyoming’s Liz Cheney in their Tuesday Aug. 16 primary election, however, indicates that something different may be happening in America. Cheney’s loss was as much an implicit statement of revulsion towards her father, Dick Cheney, “the Butcher of Iraq,” as towards her. Cheney made the mistake of appearing in an ad in support of his daughter, exuding his typical tarantula-like charm, and claimed that Donald Trump was the greatest threat to the United States in its 246-year history—conveniently leaving himself out as a contender for that very designation.
The electoral landscape in America, is, in fact, being shaped from a higher manifold than the Cheney family will ever understand. It is a complex domain, a “hypersphere,” not governed by “the rule of law,” from which standpoint the thirst for a return to sanity, and the world of the LaRouche Four Laws, of advanced-production-oriented manufacturing, mining and agriculture is now resonating among farm leaders in the United States in particular, and people more generally. Below you will find an extensive report on the joint appearance of two “honorees” from the Ukrainian blacklist: former UN weapons inspector in Iraq, author and whistleblower Scott Ritter and LaRouche independent United States Senate candidate in Diane Sare, in an Albany interview. The international and national response to Sare’s New York campaign against Chuck Schumer, one of the most prominent of Wall Street’s procurer-partisans and a 42-year Congressional “fix-it” fixture for the dying unipolar world, will be key. This is because Schumer’s primary approach to being re-elected is to make sure no one in New York State knows that Sare is on the ballot. New York State is turning into “Mississippi-on-the-Hudson,” where the Democratic incumbent suppresses knowledge about the election among his constituents even as he pontificates about giving tens of billions for wars to support “the democracies vs the autocracies” all over the world.
Everyone in the world who can, should speak out, and stop Chuck Schumer’s “lockdown on democracy.”
In an unforeseen way, the moment has now arrived at which Lyndon LaRouche can be exonerated. It will, however, not remain indefinitely. The “extreme events” now underway worldwide make correcting this supreme injustice not only more possible than at any other time, but perhaps even more necessary than in January 1989, when LaRouche was first imprisoned by the not-so-secret government of George Herbert Walker Bush. The invocation of Executive Order 12333 then, as with the Espionage Act now, was used by both international and national forces, coordinated through an “Establishment task force” organized by the banker John Train, to set the LaRouche precedent that now intends to disembowel the American Presidential System before the very eyes of the American people. The only way to stop that, is to tell the truth about what the Department of Justice did to Lyndon LaRouche, because, whether people believe it or not, the character and mode of the operation now going after President Trump, is derived from the LaRouche prosecution. Former United States Attorney General, the late Ramsey Clark, explained why many years ago. The “Department of Injustice” abuse thrown against LaRouche, according to Clark, “was a broader range of deliberate and systematic misconduct and abuse of power over a longer period of time in an effort to destroy a political movement and leader, than any other federal prosecution in my time or to my knowledge.” Twenty-seven years have passed since Clark made those remarks. That operation is now turned not only against the President of the United States, but against all Americans. The independent campaigns of Diane Sare and Congressional candidates Joel Dejean, and co-“blacklisters” like Kentucky Democratic Party independent Geoff Young, offer an alternative, but without taking apart this “secret government” FBI/State Department apparatus, how will that be safeguarded? Don’t you think it’s past time that America be freed of it? Don’t you think it’s time to free America by daring to exonerate Lyndon LaRouche?
