We are at war for the soul of the United States, with our continued existence as a Constitutional Republic in the balance. More than that: today, as in the 1930s and 1940s, the fate of an entire crisis-wracked world may rest on the leadership which America can provide, once it is restored to its American principles. For these reasons, the 2024 Presidential campaign and election will be the most important in living memory. The ongoing takeover of the Republican Party by the MAGA movement and President Trump, can and must revive the spirit and scientific legacy of the United States and its American System of political economy. President Trump is the only candidate capable of building a broad coalition of Americans, a coalition of producers uniting blue collar families, scientists and engineers, people of religious faith, veterans, farmers, immigrants, and many others. Such a coalition can overcome election fraud, media lies, and the illicit tactics of the Department of Justice and others, and go on to rebuild our nation.
Before reviewing the entire basis of our endorsement, we need to clarify one thing. LaRouche PAC is not affiliated with or associated in any way with Helga Zepp-LaRouche and has not been for a long time. She and those associated with her had previously expressed adamant opposition to endorsing Donald J. Trump.
Blessed Are the Peacemakers
President Trump is the reason that the wars in the Middle East are now over, despite the attempts by traitors in the intelligence community to keep those wars going in places like Syria and Ukraine — the same traitors who ran a perpetual coup against this sitting President. Given the current threat of war in Ukraine between the U.S. and Russia, it must be noted that President Trump had the courage to personally meet with President Putin in 2018, in the face of threats from the Mueller investigators and Department of Justice, and in direct opposition to the so-called intelligence community. This courage in the face of real political and personal threats, is the courage of a true President, and harkens back to President Kennedy’s courage against the same military-industrial complex that was dragging us into wars like Vietnam then. And as President Trump has said, he would end the war in Ukraine. This is what it means to put America First. Only under a leader of such courage can we restore our Republic.
There are many reasons to endorse President Trump for his 2024 election. Perhaps most obvious, given the unprecedented attacks against this President, is his clear opposition to what Lyndon LaRouche identified as the British Empire, and what people refer to today as the globalists or the deep state. President Trump gives us the chance to end the tyranny of our current “Washington consensus” of police state surveillance, forever wars, and central banking control of our money and finances.
Our enemy is the modern British Empire, with the City of London and the Crown at the center of a globalist agenda. It's not surprising, but little noted, that the British House of Lords declared in 2018 that a second Trump term was a clear threat to British control of U.S policy via the "special relationship." This special relationship has been the driving force behind the destruction of the US industrial economy since 1913 and the creation of the Federal Reserve, and is equally responsible for instigating the forever wars, beginning with WWI, and then Vietnam, Iraq, and now Ukraine. This same special relationship pushed the globalization agenda since the 1960s, with its offshoring of industry, first from our major cities and then our small towns, all for the sake of cheap labor and a weakened United States.
Most recently, British spies like Christopher Steele and British agents-of-influence orchestrated the attempted coup against President Trump and our Republic–all because of the unique role the U.S. can play in defending the God-given rights of each nation to grow and develop.
In this light, President Trump’s courage to challenge the “special relationship” and break from the Crown’s agenda of global depopulation, by pulling the U.S. out of the Paris Accords, proves him unparalleled in his ability to fight for the hard-working people of the USA, and in doing so, for much of the world.
It is LaRouchePAC’s view that this special relationship must be ended entirely, which requires the political backing of the American people to establish a patriotic U.S. foreign policy based on the sovereignty of nation states.
“The future does not belong to globalists. The future belongs to patriots. The future belongs to sovereign and independent nations who protect their citizens, respect their neighbors, and honor the differences that make each country special and unique.
“It is why we in the United States have embarked on an exciting program of national renewal. In everything we do, we are focused on empowering the dreams and aspirations of our citizens.”
Restore the American System of Economic Growth
Despite incessant attacks from all sides, President Trump's first term still demonstrated what is possible if we were to unleash the power of the American System of political economy. President Trump made reference to this American System when speaking to leading Republicans in March of 2017:
“I have called this model, the model that you’ve been watching, the model that's created so much value, the model of bringing back jobs and bringing back industry -- I called it the American Model. And this is the system that our Founders wanted. Our greatest American leaders -- including George Washington, Hamilton, Jackson, Lincoln -- they all agreed that for America to be a strong nation it must also be a great manufacturing nation.”
This American Model was the power of manufacturing and national banking established by Washington and Hamilton. It was the driving force of Lincoln's transcontinental railroad during the Civil War, and the industrial revolution led by Americans like Carnegie, Bell, Edison and Ford. It was the Arsenal of Democracy and TVA under FDR, Atoms for Peace under Eisenhower, and the Apollo Program under JFK.
President Trump single-handedly challenged the assumptions of British free trade and globalization and won. It is time to expand this kind of national industrial agenda, and make this the basis of a new international system of reciprocal trade based on long-term contracts between sovereign nations.
The expansion of energy, via oil, coal and natural gas, was a key part of President Trump's first term, and remains even more necessary today. Our intent should be to expand the production of energy and industry on a global scale. Let's make the zero-growthers and Malthusians scream!
Equally important, President Trump planted the seeds of a nuclear renaissance based on new plant designs, new reactors, and the potential for the mass production of modular reactors from start to finish here in the United States. Let's move on this aggressively, which will require rebuilding entire industrial enterprises.
Totally overlooked was President Trump’s request to the Academy of Sciences to define a time-frame for the development of a viable commercial thermonuclear fusion energy plant. In their report, the Academy estimated a mere fifteen years. This mission, a viable fusion commercial energy plant, can be the Manhattan Project for a new generation of young scientists and engineers, and once accomplished, would fully expose the fraud of “limits to growth” and unleash new horizons for exploration.
When we commercialize fusion energy, and all the related new industries, we will vastly accelerate the rate of growth of human development on a global scale, while at the same time ensuring economic security for our nation for generations to come. It is impossible to overstate the effects of this total revolution.
Build our Nation and Civilization
President Trump repeatedly called for infrastructure development, but the dead-beat Republicans and treasonous Democrats were unwilling to work with him to rebuild our seaports and airports, locks and dams, roads and railroads. Instead, the Washington Uniparty worked with the Biden collective to pass a massive inflationary Green New Deal program, which they called infrastructure, but which contained only a small percentage of real-world steel and concrete projects. We need to build the nation, not increase the ideological obsession with carbon dioxide (otherwise known as plant food), nor print more money, nor engrain more bureaucratic regulations. Mr. Trump is a builder in the real world, and this is what America needs today.
It is not enough to simply repair our nation–we need to build an entirely new, higher economic platform of industrial and agricultural production. To rebuild the old cities, we need to commence building new industrial and cultural centers where our families will thrive, and where minds will be uplifted and inspired by new works of beautiful art. Donald Trump knows this better than any President in American history.
“But to embrace the possibilities of tomorrow, we must reject the perennial prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse….
“They predicted an overpopulation crisis in the 1960s, mass starvation in the ’70s, and an end of oil in the 1990s. These alarmists always demand the same thing: absolute power to dominate, transform, and control every aspect of our lives.…
“For anyone who doubts what is possible in the future, we need only look at the towering achievements of the past. Only a few hundred miles from here are some of the great cities of Europe — teeming centers of commerce and culture. Each of them is full of reminders of what human drive and imagination can achieve.
“Centuries ago, at the time of the Renaissance, skilled craftsmen and laborers looked upwards and built the structures that still touch the human heart. To this day, some of the greatest structures in the world have been built hundreds of years ago.
“In Italy, the citizens once started construction on what would be a 140-year project, the Duomo of Florence. An incredible, incredible place. While the technology did not yet exist to complete their design, city fathers forged ahead anyway, certain that they would figure it out someday. These citizens of Florence did not accept limits to their high aspirations and so the Great Dome was finally built….
“The Cathedrals of Europe teach us to pursue big dreams, daring adventures, and unbridled ambitions. They urge us to consider not only what we build today, but what we will endure long after we are gone. They testify to the power of ordinary people to realize extraordinary achievements when united by a grand and noble purpose.”
Let us stress, it is not merely repair that is required. We need a whole new platform of productive infrastructure. We need hundreds, yes, hundreds of giga-watt sized, or equivalent, new advanced power plants to get the ball rolling, just to make industry and manufacturing viable in the long term for the next two generations of fifty years, which is a minimum time-frame for any real industrial platform.
We should declare a national emergency that energizes the construction of hundreds of nuclear energy plants, and all the industrial inputs that requires, along with the rapid expansion and renewal of energy transmission, rail and water transportation, water supply, and food production and processing. For a start, let’s consider NAWAPA XXI!
Free markets play an important role, but to secure our nation long-term we need to wage a war on fifty years of neglect, globalist looting and cultural degeneration. To rebuild and rejuvenate national industries and infrastructure after 50 years of severe attrition will require a war-like mobilization–free markets will not suffice. The free market never won a war. A national security directive combined with effective legislation could enable red tape to be cut and ideological obstruction to be overcome. Combine this with a Hamiltonian National Credit System that can provide the necessary large amount of financing and credit required, even under increasingly turbulent global financial circumstances. Together, they will enable us to finally restore the proper role of government as declared in the Preamble of the Constitution, i.e. the general welfare and our posterity. This is how wars are won.
Perhaps one of President Trump's greatest unsung achievements was reestablishing our nation as the leader in human exploration of space. The Artemis Project of NASA, to not only return to the Moon, but to build a permanent lunar manned base using lunar resources and robotics, and then continue onward to the manned exploration of Mars, was a monumental decision. In this project lies the future of human civilization, on earth and in the heavens, as we explore and participate in the creation of our Creator. This is what makes human life a miracle in itself, and gives a profound mission to future generations.
In 2026, we will celebrate our Nation's 250th birthday. We are a nation built as a testament to the creative powers of man to participate in the joys of creation. No nation is perfect, but our founding fathers saw the potential to form “a more perfect Union.” There is no better way to bring to life this profound idea of self government, than to unleash the creative and productive powers of all Americans through a profound national economic renewal. This is not an option–it is an imperative for peace and stability throughout the world. President Trump has demonstrated a profound understanding of our nation’s role, and perhaps most important, he has a great love for the American people. This, above all else, qualifies him to be President of the United States.
We are proud to give President Donald J. Trump our complete and total endorsement for his election as President in 2024. We ask every American to join with us, and with President Trump, to make this vision of America a reality. Together we can once again shape the course of human history, in a world of sovereign nations fit for men and women made in the image of our Creator, as we enter this Third Millennium.
