In the middle of the impeachment circus engulfing Washington, in which the frenzied congressional Democrats issued two lying articles of impeachment Tuesday in pursuit of the British attempted coup d’état against the United States, President Donald Trump did two things—each more odious than the other in the eyes of the British, who are out to overthrow his government.

First, he met in the White House with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had engaged in lengthy, if tense, talks with Lavrov on a number of pressing issues, most importantly the matter of nuclear arms control.

Second, Trump travelled to western Pennsylvania late in the day for a campaign rally in that hotly contested state. He will follow up with a Dec. 18 rally in Michigan, another battleground state for the 2020 elections.

In other words, just as the British were escalating their coup drive, President Trump was doing precisely what the British have repeatedly warned him not to do: meet with the Russian leadership to try to get U.S.-Russian relations on a sound footing; and take the political fight to his base in the population. One can almost hear the outraged British Establishment gathering itself up haughtily and snarling: “How dare you?!”

Everything is at stake for the British Empire and their American subjects, such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has taken to bragging about how she knew there were no WMD in Iraq but allowed that deadly war to proceed, regardless. With their trans-Atlantic financial system ripping apart at the seams, the possibility of the U.S. joining China’s Belt and Road Initiative gives the British nightmares. And on the strategic front, a working U.S.-Russian relationship is key to ending the era of British geopolitics and war.

And so the British are not amused by Trump’s general assertions that he wants good relations with both Russia and China. But they are particularly alarmed about Trump’s insistence that he and Putin agree that the nuclear weapons issue is critical and must be resolved. On Dec. 3, Trump used his joint press conference with Macron at the NATO meeting to push the issue of arms discussions with Russia, And then again the next day, on Dec. 4 before meeting German Chancellor Angela Merkel in London, Trump was asked: “Mr. President, how do you respond to President Putin’s offer on a moratorium for medium-range missile systems, which he made at the end of October?” To which Trump replied: “We’re talking to Russia about many things, including a cessation on nuclear and nuclear creation. It’s, in my opinion, the biggest problem the world has today. I think it’s bigger than any other problem the world has today. And we’re working very hard on it. And he [putin] wants to see something happen and so do I, and so does China.”

Trump is doing the right thing, Helga Zepp-LaRouche commented yesterday. But more—much more—will be required to actually defeat the intended coup. The financially and strategically bankrupt British system behind the coup can only be defeated by entirely replacing it with a New Paradigm, along the lines long-specified by Lyndon LaRouche. Although they may seem more “practical,” lesser fights will not lead to lesser victories; they will only lead to defeat.
