Thanks, Akito!

The political moment is clear. The President is acting on behalf of the future of the world in his vision of relations with Russia and China. Most in Congress and official Washington are stuck in a deadly past in which they serve a foreign master, the British Empire.

As long as they act on world events in the mode of a British colonial administrator, they will prosper, regardless of their "errors." A different generation would not have tolerated an "error" which killed millions after the U.S. invasion of Iraq set the entirety of Southwest Asia ablaze. Now, one of the authors of that war, John Brennan, who was actually promoted for his genocidal actions, is allowed to call the President "treasonous" for attempting to open frozen communications channels between the United States and the Russia.

It is time for the actual traitors, the perpetual warfare profiteers to be run out of Washington. Russia, China, India, and Trump need now to escalate and show the world the concrete benefits of their new paridigm. The American people need to be brought in on the deal, to find their identity in it.

“In this 2000 show in NYC, I discuss the making of the D-cell and then McLuhan themes (Sputnik in 1957, later instant-replay effects).

Then I play an excerpt from my recording of talking with Frank Zappa via the Evergreens (channeled by Michael Blake Read in 1996).”

Trump Will Win This Round With the Deep State

by Conrad Black

When the cant and emotionalism subside, the Helsinki summit will go down in history as a turning point in this American president’s struggle to disembowel the bipartisan regime of complacency and lassitude he successfully ran against. It may also be a modest inflection point in U.S.-Russian relations.

Trump’s response causes the ultimate evocation to the voters in this epic battle that has been lurching and raging over America and astonishing the world for two years. Many of the president’s political supporters expressed genuine regret. The Democrats offered almost uniform expressions of shock and anger that the president had humiliated the country.

They all missed the point. The real issue surged to the surface and into the ether in a blinding flash about five minutes after the joint press conference ended in the form of a tweet from former CIA director John Brennan.

Perhaps the most virulent (and fearful) Trump-hater of all, Brennan described Trump’s public performance (not any imagined private betrayals) as “exceeding the threshold of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ and justified impeachment” as “treasonous” and “imbecilic.” Although this was defamatory lunacy, it attracted unctuous hand-wringing and robotic nodding of talking heads among Trump’s most consistent cable network detractors. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said it was clear Putin “had something on” Trump.

The president could have made the point that former U.S. Ambassador Jack Matlock made last week that the intelligence community had in fact only tentatively concluded that there was official Russian meddling of a very insignificant and ineffectual kind in the 2016 election. He could have dwelt on the fact that all that has really been unearthed is about $10 million of rather vague advertisements on Facebook decrying the general condition of the country, compared to an unprecedented $250 million of Clinton attack ads against Trump in that campaign.

Trump & Putin | The New Paradigm in Action, Sending Traitors into Hysterical Fits of Rag

LaRouche Pac

The historic summit today between Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin has marked a dramatic phase-shift in history.

It is the result of a long, difficult battle, led in no small part by Lyndon LaRouche over the past fifty years, to create an alignment of interests among the great nations and cultures of history as the necessary and sufficient force required to end the tyranny of the British Empire once and for all. In particular, LaRouche posed that cooperation among "Four Powers" — Russia, China, India, and the United States (representing the distillation of the best of European culture) — could replace the broken Western financial system centered in London and Wall Street with a new paradigm, based not on monetary power and colonial wars, but on a credit system to bring peace and prosperity through mutual development for all nations.

Before stepping into the private, one-on-one meeting with Putin, Trump told the press that they would be discussing many things, mentioning, in particular, that Russia and the U.S. were cooperating with "our mutual friend President Xi." Continue reading at LaRouche Pac

Mexico Considers Legalizing Drugs to Bring Narcotics Wars Under Control

Mexico's new government is set explore the possibility of legalizing drugs, as part of a policy to tackle the violent crime that grips the nation, incoming Interior Minister Olga Sanchez Cordero said on Tuesday.

Sanchez Cordero, a former Supreme Court judge, made the remark at a university seminar on the nation's cartel-fueled violence. Mexico's drug traffickers are the biggest suppliers of cocaine, heroin and other narcotics to the US.

"On the subject of decriminalizing drugs, [President-elect] Andres Manuel told me, and I quote: 'Carte blanche. Whatever is necessary to restore peace in this country. Let's open up the debate,'" Sanchez Cordero said.

Since Mexico deployed its army to fight drug trafficking in 2006, the country has been engulfed in a wave of violence that has seen more than 200,000 murders. The incoming interior minister said that this militarization policy was in violation of the constitutional statute that public safety should be in the responsibility of civilian authorities.

"What no one can deny with hard data is that, at least in the past 10 years, the Mexican government has been incapable of stopping violence and responding to it with institutional mechanisms," Sanchez Cordero said, in a clear rebuke to previous administrations. Continue reading at Deutsche Welle
