From the beginning of Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign, there was no doubt he would face fierce opposition from the Democratic Party, whose nominee Hillary Clinton raised questions about her opponent's mental stability. For example, at a campaign rally on June 2, 2016, in San Diego, she taunted him for expressing a willingness to cooperate with Russian President Putin: "I'll leave it to the psychiatrists to explain his affection for tyrants," she quipped.
In the aftermath of the successful Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki on July 16, the divergence of opinion on matters of war and peace between President Donald Trump and the American people on one side, and the majority of members of Congress and the mainstream media on the other, has become more striking than ever. The shrill attacks on President Trump and Russia's President Putin, which have characterized the outbursts of the War Party since the summer of 2016 during the election campaign, have increased to a roar, despite the progress in improving U.S.-Russian relations at the historic meeting between the two Presidents. These attacks escalated during a hearing held by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on July 26, when members of both parties confronted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with accusations that Trump is being "submissive" in the face of Russia's "malign intent" towards the U.S.
With Russiagate Turning into "Mullergate", Will the Trump-Putin Summit Finish Off the US/British "Special Relationship"?
As the world awaits the upcoming summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, the battle over Russiagate in the U.S. is heating up to a boiling point. Developments in the last days, which include a new level of partisan recrimination in the U.S. Congress, show that those who created the "Russian-meddling-Trump-colluded" narrative, to prevent Trump from breaking with the anti-Russian policies of the Obama administration, are escalating their efforts to sabotage any agreement which might be reached between the two leaders. Watching this unfold, there can no longer be any doubt that peaceful cooperation between the two nuclear superpowers is seen as an existential threat to those London-based geopoliticians who created the post-Cold War order. Their greatest fear is that Trump is committed to dismantling this order, and that there is growing support within the populations of European nations for that to occur.
"Unbound" Trump Opens the Door for the U.S. to Join the New Paradigm, Exposes Why Russiagate was Launched
Geopoliticians Try to Sabotage Emergence of New Paradigm, Push Sanction & War, Rather than Diplomacy
Developments of the last weeks have demonstrated that the potential is emerging to bring the world into a new era of peaceful economic progress, centered around the diplomacy and physical economic advances associated with China's Belt-and-Road Initiative (BRI) policy. The dynamic unleashed by the BRI, which Helga Zepp LaRouche, the chairman of the Schiller Institute, has called the "New Paradigm", has brought together the leading nations of Asia—China, India, Japan, South Korea—along with Eurasian power Russia, into an alliance which is causing increasing panic among those still yearning for the days when the British Empire's geopolitics dominated every aspect of international relations. Many nations in Africa and South and Central America have also joined the BRI, accepting the offer of the Chinese to be part of a "win-win" approach based on mutual benefit.
