The 75-day countdown to the Nov. 6 U.S. Federal elections is a critical opportunity to activate Americans to forge a plurality of leadership favorable to shifting the U.S. policy course into a new paradigm for development and peace. If not, the world goes to hell.
Predictably, the advocates for going to hell, went wild yesterday, gleefully claiming that the two legal decisions against President Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort, and Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen, mean the end of the line for Trump himself—i.e. impeachment or automatic ouster by other means. But, as pointed out in the LaRouchePAC posting yesterday, titled, “Robert Mueller’s Desperate and Phony Manafort and Cohen Blitz: Time to Organize,” the initiation and conduct of these peripheral anti-Trump court maneuvers are based on the fraudulent mandate to find Trump-Russian collusion; but there is no collusion. They are a non-starter. The Get-Trump Mueller investigation is just the front-end of British dirty operations to mobilize people and nations against the fraud of “Demon Russia,” in an attempt to distract and destroy opposition to the British financial/control empire, which itself is cracking up.
Trump himself came out swinging against the Mueller fraud, and for going all out during the elections, at a campaign rally two nights ago in Charleston, West Virginia. He asked the crowd repeatedly, ‘Where is the [russian] collusion?’ He said that he will be making campaign rally trips on 40 days during the remaining time to Nov. 6, a record for Presidential electioneering—to stump for people who will support the policy commitments that got him elected. The President stressed the importance of ensuring a Republican majority in the Senate because the Democratic Party has no policy, except “Resist!” In fact, he said, the Democratic Party “is a hostage to `Resist'” and like New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, “don’t believe America can be great.”
Aside: Trump also issued sound advice in a tweet yesterday: “If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I strongly suggest you do not retain Michael Cohen…”
The U.S. elections are now underway in earnest, given that 45 states have held their party primaries, and the candidates are chosen. The LPAC-endorsed Independents are intervening in a wide open situation. On Aug. 23 in Houston, Texas, Independent candidate Kesha Rogers (C.D. 9) hosts a policy forum, “Great Projects for a Great America; Solving Our Flood and Hurricane Threats.”
Yesterday in Mitchell, South Dakota, Independent Congressional (statewide) candidate Ron Wieczorek faced off against his Republican and Democratic opponents, in their first big public debate. It was moderated by the President of the American Farm Bureau Federation, the largest U.S. farm organization, and had a strong focus on emergency economic policy required for the rural crisis and infrastructure.
The critical intervention in the policy debate at large, is provided by the Schiller Institute’s newly-released petition, calling for a New Bretton Woods conference. The urgency for action on a new world credit system is indicated by the latest in the continuing crisis on what’s called the “emerging markets” front. Today, the value of the peso again plunged in Argentina. In Africa, Angola is in crisis; its currency has dropped 38 percent in value since the beginning of the year.
Where the world can instead be going, is shown by the agenda for the FOCAC (Forum of China and Africa Cooperation) Summit Sept. 3 and 4 in Beijing, which was previewed today by Foreign Minister Wang Yi. Sessions will be co-chaired by South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, and Xi Jinping, who will give the keynote. A “new phase” of development between China and Africa will be set in motion, with the signing of specific cooperation projects, and mega-plans for the coming years. This is the biggest heads-of-state gathering in China this year.
