Tensions Mount—Leaders Summit Urgent

As State Department security personnel broke into the Chinese Consulate in Houston just hours after the 72-hour deadline to vacate, the U.S. Consulate in Chengdu is being quickly vacated to meet the reciprocal 72-hour deadline imposed by Beijing on Monday. The mounting tensions, from a U.S. perspective, must be seen as part of the continuing coup by the military industrial establishment against President Donald Trump. Trump has committed his administration to an end to foreign adventures and a full set rebuilding of the U.S. economy. Instead of concentrating on those American companies and financiers who sold this country out to the globalist regime put into place after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the war party, centered in London and Wall Street, is continuously attempting to place the U.S. into a second Cold War, this time with both Russia and China.

The Schiller Institute sponsored two international fora in the past three days featuring former NSA technical director William Binney, who reviewed his proof that the intelligence community claim of Russian interference in the 2016 election was a hoax, calling for the end of the NSA surveillance state and the jailing of the perpetrators of that criminal policy. Binney also implicated Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the continuing coup attempt against President Donald Trump, describing his briefing to then-CIA Director Pompeo on the fraud of “Russian interference,” which Pompeo ignored, endorsing instead the Obama intelligence team’s lie that Russia hacked the Democrat emails to help Trump get elected. If there were any doubt that Pompeo is part of the campaign against his own boss, his trip to London last week, giving fulsome support to the current “China-bashing” campaign being run by former MI6 officials Richard Dearlove and Christopher Steele—the very kingpins in the Russiagate coup attempt against Trump—put those doubts to rest.

As to the bellicose fat boy’s willingness to risk a nuclear war with China to preserve the imperial power of the British Empire, listen to Pompeo’s words in London: “And if we don’t act now, ultimately our children’s children may be at the mercy of the Chinese Communist Party.... General Secretary Xi is not destined to tyrannize inside and outside of China forever, unless we allow it.” To an imperial oligarch, vast infrastructure development through the Belt and Road Initiative constitutes “tyranny.”

The Anglo-American war party is still pushing for confrontation with Russia, despite the near-collapse of Russiagate. In both Washington and London, military leaders are accusing Russia of launching a “weapon-like projectile” into space (with no effort to describe what a “weapon-like projectile” may be), and announcing therefore a review of their militarization of space policies.

In the case of Russia, President Trump continues to counter the provocations from the Washington D.C.’s National Security State through personal diplomacy, conducting a long phone call with President Vladimir Putin on July 23. The call covered many critical areas—most importantly, plans for a Summit of the leaders of the five Permanent Members of the UN Security Council, which would bring Presidents Trump, Putin and Xi Jinping together. President Trump has demonstrated in many crucial situations that his personal meetings with potential adversaries can override the confrontational and provocative policies of the war party in the government including the military. Never has such personal diplomacy been more urgent. The Democratic Party leadership, including their pathetic presumptive Presidential candidate Joe Biden, far from posing an alternative to the insane anti-Russia and anti-China hysteria, are promising to be even tougher on them than the Trump Administration.

The summit of world leaders, proposed by President Putin, could not be more urgent as the world faces multiple crises. There can be no robust recovery in the United States without a resort to the methods of Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon LaRouche. Both knew that without a reorganization of the world’s financial system, based on creating credit for massive jobs producing infrastructure programs and development, the bankers’ strangulation on credit and the means for development would continue. This is what must be taken up at the P5 summit –the ability to create a prosperous future for humanity.
