As Democratic Party Disintegrates, Trump Aims for the Stars

The Trump Administration has challenged the Congress to live up to the tremendous optimism of the Artemis program—to place “the first woman and the next man” on the Moon by 2024, and to establish a functioning base on the Moon as the launch site for a manned visit to Mars. The budget presented to the Congress this week has called for the full funding of the project. The Artemis program is already functioning, as intended, to inspire the citizens of the United States and throughout the world in the same manner that John F. Kennedy did in 1962 by declaring that mankind would land on the Moon and return safely “within the decade.” Reaching for the stars, breaking mankind of its Earth-bound restraints, trusting and believing in the creative powers of the human mind to make the required scientific discoveries to make that happen—this is the true nature of the human race.

But will the Congress comply? Will the champions of a return to the dark ages, the Green fascists who wish to cut off all credit to industrial progress under the false god of “climate change?” This will be a crucial test, especially for the Democrat Party, which is no longer the party of John F. Kennedy.

The Democratic Party has transformed itself into a virulently anti-science and anti-development cult, demanding that all policies be subservient to the fake science of man-made, carbon-induced climate change. It is now in a state of disintegration—the party faithful long ago lost interest in the baseless Russiagate and impeachment campaigns, and are now being presented with a group of pathetic Presidential candidates who inspire no one and have virtually zero chance of beating President Donald Trump in November.

But wait! There is always the Last Great Hope from Wall Street and London, as “Mouselini” Mike Bloomberg has been programmed to ride onto the scene in a golden Rolls Royce and save the Democratic Party, and the world, from the horrible Donald Trump.

This is indeed a real danger. As EIR has documented, Bloomberg, together with Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, are the sponsors and leaders of Green Finance, the planned Wall Street/City of London dictatorship to cut off credit to all carbon-producing projects—i.e., virtually every productive enterprise in the world.

This afternoon, however, a recording of a speech given by Bloomberg in 2015 at the Aspen Institute was leaked to the press, adding a useful dose of reality to the public knowledge of the character of this perverted billionaire. Trying to defend his infamous “stop and frisk” policy when he was Mayor of New York, Bloomberg said: “Ninety-five percent of murders, murderers and murder victims ... are male, minorities, 16-25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city.... And the way you get the guns out of the kids’ hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them.” He has since apologized for his racist program, but this information will make his stated policy of winning over the Black vote rather shaky.

The American people must step up, beyond the question of party politics, and demand that the Congress act for the future, beginning now with Trump’s Artemis program. Today, Wednesday, Feb. 12, marks the first anniversary of the death of the great statesman, economist and philosopher Lyndon H. LaRouche (as well as the 2011th anniversary of one of LaRouche’s greatest predecessors, Abraham Lincoln). It is also a time in history of great moment, in which the world is tipping towards either nuclear war and economic breakdown, or global cooperation in science and development. LaRouche’s entire life was devoted to preparing for a moment such as this, in which the general population was suddenly confronted with the breakdown of society around them, forcing a confrontation with the realities of the troubled world, as well as an internal confrontation with the true nature of a meaningful life. It is now more than ever that the world needs access to the power of LaRouche’s ideas. It is time for the exoneration of Lyndon LaRouche.
