At the time of this weekend’s U.S. Federal holiday in tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a group of 60 prominent Americans has called for re-opening the investigation of the murder of President John F. Kennedy and of other cases of assassination—Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and Robert Kennedy. Their joint letter calls for a “public inquest” into “the four major assassinations of the 1960s that together had a disastrous impact on the course of American history.” They call on Congress to oversee the release of all government documents related to the Kennedy presidency and assassination. The signers include Daniel Ellsberg, Oliver Stone, members of the Kennedy and King families, and many experts as well as reporters and leading public figures. For example, a signer is G. Blakely, Chief Counsel of the House Select Committee on Assassinations, which determined in 1979 that JFK was the victim of a probable conspiracy. The signers range from politically “pro-Trump” to “anti-Trump,” but they are acting in concert to bring out the truth.
Their action focuses new attention on the British-pedigree apparatus, which is the very same that went after statesman Lyndon LaRouche and associates years ago. This week is the 30th anniversary of their incarceration on wrongful Federal charges, for which LaRouche was jailed for five years. The policies he presented back then, for the way forward for the U.S. and internationally, were ruined. Now today, the same apparatus is threatening President Trump, perpetrating a coup operation against his presidency. It is all one complex. LaRouche’s principles are embodied in a new “The Way Forward” program, released Jan. 15, “A Proposed Basis for Bipartisan Agreement and Action on Domestic and International Economic Policy.”
The British role in Trump-Gate is fully documented in the new three-part dossier by LaRouchePAC’s Barbara Boyd, headlined in a Jan. 18 LPAC press release: “The British Were the 2016 Election Meddlers and Are Directing a Coup Against President Trump.”
Also of note in this respect, is an expose out this week by veteran investigative reporter Seymour Hersh, on the lawless conduct by George H.W. Bush, when he was Vice President, in conducting wetworks operations, completely in line with British geopolitical strategy, and completely outside any channel of U.S. government knowledge or control, including that of President Reagan. Titled, “The Vice President’s Men,” the piece, suppressed by the U.S. media, appears in the London Review of Books (Jan. 24 issue.)
Schiller Institute Chairman Helga Zepp-LaRouche, commenting on these developments, said that, “The times of cover-up are over… People have a right to know.” She drew out the point that, since the Kennedy assassination, has occurred a downward paradigm-shift in the outlook in the United States and Trans-Atlantic. Moreover, the scope of the crimes involved, is not confined to the murders, cover-up, and lies, but includes how the nation and civilization have been deprived of the policy leadership that LaRouche would have exerted, and the joy in its results.
There is widespread pessimism today, commonly expressed as the view that, you can only ‘complain,’ but not change anything. Many are so beaten down, that they have no idea how to tell what is ‘true;’ no idea what is ‘science.’
But nevertheless, there remains the human impulse ‘to know,’ and to care. A model for this is the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa, which functioned for justice and mercy, at the end of apartheid. The signees of the joint letter for investigating the 1960s assassinations, are calling for an “American Truth and Reconciliation process.”
This week in Washington, D.C., teams will be distributing to Congressional offices the LPAC “British 2016 Election Meddlers” release, and LPAC’s policy document, “The Way Forward,” challenging the lawmakers and staff to, “put principle above party and move the nation forward with the President.”
