As the Democratic Party leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives are racing to impeach Donald Trump, the President tweeted on October 1, "As I learn more and more each day, I am coming to the conclusion that what is taking place is not an impeachment, it is a coup." The Democrats who have begun impeachment proceedings, such as Representatives Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler, have been demanding the removal of Trump from office since virtually the day of his inauguration. With the announcement of a "whistle blower's" complaint that Trump abused his position to demand that Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky aid in digging up "dirt" on Joe Biden, his possible opponent in 2020, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who had previously tried to tamp down discussion of impeachment, suddenly shifted her position on September 24, and the race for impeachment was on.
What led to this sudden rush to judgement against Trump?
There are three significant reasons for the flight-forward lunacy coming from the anti-Trump crowd:
1. The investigation launched by Attorney General William Barr into the origin of the whole fabricated Russiagate fiasco, which was first announced by President Trump on May 24, is moving into a decisive phase. In that announcement, Trump said he tasked Barr with the job of conducting a broad probe, saying he hopes he looks into the role of the United Kingdom, Australia and Ukraine, at a minimum. Along with the soon-to-be-revealed findings of Justice Department Inspector General Horowitz on fraud committed by Obama administration intelligence officials in obtaining FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign, Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham are honing in on the networks which launched the attack against Trump. They are investigating what role was played by foreign governments in the operations against the Trump campaign in 2016, and then in the regime change coup against him after his election. What they will likely prove is that Russiagate was a continuation of British imperial geopolitical manipulations to insure that there could be no improvement in U.S.-Russian relations, with Ukraine serving as a key battleground to disrupt Trump's efforts to develop cooperative relations with Russia. The February 2014 regime change coup against a democratically-elected government in Ukraine was run by British and U.S. intelligence operatives, working with "left-wing" Soros' -funded networks and "right-wing" neocons, who backed violent Nazi militia networks involved in the Maidan Square uprising. The point man for the Obama administration in handling Ukraine was Vice President Joe Biden.
2. The failure of the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller to find evidence of Russian meddling, Trump collusion with Russia, and obstruction of justice by the President, freed him to move forward with his intent to improve relations with Russia. The firing of the Director of National Intelligence Coats and National Security Adviser Bolton, both of whom are committed war hawks who had been acting within the administration against Trump's desires to put an end to the regime change wars of the last two decades, demonstrated that he was now taking control of his administration, especially its foreign policy. This has been a fear of the imperial geopoliticians from the beginning of his presidency, and it was reaffirmed by his discussions at the Osaka G20 summit with Putin, Xi, India's Modi, and then his trip to meet with North Korean President Kim following the summit, that he is committed to follow through with his intent to pull the U.S. out of the provocative strategic geometry of his predecessors, Bush and Obama. The potential for a realignment organized by Trump, outside the Old Paradigm defined by geopolitics, represents an existential threat to the Trans-Atlantic elites who have used divide-and-conquer schemes and endless regional wars to enforce their designs.
3. The onrush of a financial crisis, which combines the threat of the popping of the "everything bubble" with the collapse of a staggering volume of unsustainable debt, has been met by the global financial elites and their central bank operatives by a return to short-term bailouts, in the form of overnight loans of up to $75 billion per day to "ease" a liquidity crunch, and a concerted push for creating a new Green financial bubble. The recent threat by Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, at the U.N. Climate Summit, that those banks and firms which do not accept a Green financial dictatorship will be cut off from credit by central banks, is a key feature of this agenda. Trump's repeated denunciations of the Federal Reserve policy, combined with his open rejection of the fraud of "man-made climate change", has heightened the panic of these financial circles that he may respond to the collapse with economic nationalist measures, which reflect the influence of American economist and statesman Lyndon LaRouche. Those behind Russiagate come from the same circles as those who ran the persecution of LaRouche, including William Weld, who is running against Trump for the Republican nomination, and Robert Mueller, who took over from Weld the running of the Get LaRouche task force.
The excuse for launching the latest impeachment frenzy is the release of a "whistle blower's" report on a call made by Trump to Ukraine's new President Zelensky, on July 25. Trump acknowledges that in that conversation, he asked for Zelensky's aid in investigating leads into the role of Ukrainian networks in setting Russiagate into motion, as well as the involvement of Joe Biden, when he was Vice President, in shutting down an investigation into charges of corruption involving his son, Hunter, who was a board member of a Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. Trump attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who has been looking into a variety of leads involving Ukraine, stated that he began the investigation because he believed "there was a lot of evidence" that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Clinton campaign -- which were involved in launching the initial charges against the Trump campaign in the summer of 2016 -- "had a close connection to Ukrainian officials."
Among matters under investigation, in addition to the charges of Biden's personal role in shutting down an investigation into his son's role at Burisma, by threatening to cancel aid to Ukraine if the prosecutor in that case was not fired immediately, was the surfacing of a "black book", which was allegedly a ledger of payments to Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, from the Yanukovych government. While this ledger was never produced as evidence, its purported existence was used by Mueller in the conviction of Manafort for money laundering. Manafort's conviction was the first big success for Mueller. Giuliani said that Manafort's attorney told him that the "black book" did not exist! In addition to Giuliani's probe, Senators Grassley and Johnson wrote a letter to Barr saying they will investigate the Ukrainian government's role on behalf of the Clinton campaign in framing Manafort. "Such allegations of corruption deserve due scrutiny," they wrote in the letter.
While the wealth of details about the leads from Ukraine is beyond the scope of this article, there are several points which must be made (1.). One involves the dirty role played by lead impeachment operative Rep. Schiff, who knew of the charges against Trump before the whistle blower filed his complaint. The whistle blower, who has been identified by the New York Times as a CIA official, approached a House Intelligence Committee aide to brief him, before filing his complaint. The aide then reported to Schiff, the Committee chair, raising the question of whether or not Schiff played a role in drafting what was contained in the complaint.
Secondly, there is the question raised by Trump of looking into whether CrowdStrike, the firm which claimed it had proof of Russian hacking of the DNC server, which it was supposed to be protecting, had moved that server to Ukraine. There are many reports of Ukrainian hackers having left digital finger prints all over elements of Russiagate, working with networks in the NSA and CIA. The CrowdStrike claim of Russian "hacking" was never proven -- in fact, the server was never given to the FBI to investigate, and the only forensic investigation into the charges of Russian hacking, by former NSA Technical Director Bill Binney and associates, demonstrated that the Clinton/DNC files were not hacked, but captured through a download, i.e., were taken as a result of an "inside" job.
Third is the simple fact that the Putin-hating networks involved in the Ukraine coup overlap those trying to frame Trump in Russiagate. These include "ex"-MI6 operative Christopher Steele, of the notorious "pee-pee" dossier, funded by the Clinton campaign and the DNC, who worked with State Department official Jonathan Winer, in filing dozens of reports on Ukraine in the period of the 2014 coup; the Soros networks, which provided funds for both the Ukrainian uprising and the anti-Trump insurgency; a variety of anti-Trump neocons; and CIA and U.S. intel operatives, in collusion with Russophobes and Trump regime change plotters John Brennan, the former CIA Director, and James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence. There are reports that both Brennan and Clapper are terrified by the Durham investigation. Brennan has not only been a leading instigator in demanding impeachment, but responded to the latest whistle blower report by calling for more whistle blowers to come forward. In contrast, when he was CIA chief, he took the lead in demanding prosecution of those who blew the whistle on his dirty ops, including torture and illegal spying on Americans.
The Target is Russia
As reported above, the real reason for the attacks on Trump is his commitment to break with the imperial geopolitical strategic arrangement which has dominated the post-Cold War world. He not only campaigned by saying he wished the U.S. to be "friends" with Russia and China, but acted on that from the beginning of his presidency. This is the causus belli for the London-directed financial and intelligence establishment, sometimes identified as the "Military Industrial Complex", or the shadow government. Their goal is not merely sustaining a U.S. military build-up, and continue fighting endless wars, but to protect a globalist financial regime of looting and genocidal austerity, not only against the underdeveloped sector, but increasingly against the populations of the Trans-Atlantic region. This global regime is threatened by the collapse caused by its failed economic policies, but also by the emergence of an alternative, "New Paradigm", centered around China's Belt-and-Road Initiative. This New Paradigm is gaining support from many nations, due to its commitment to offer an alternative to the disastrous policies of the IMF and World Bank, through providing credit and technologies for the building of an economy based on advancing a new platform of infrastructure, and using real science to improve the energy-flux density needed for a new era of manufacturing and agriculture.
This New Paradigm is very much influenced by the life work in science and economics of Lyndon LaRouche. The possibility that Trump could move against the Old Paradigm, and join with Russia, China and India -- as LaRouche proposed prior to the crash of 2008 -- represents a real threat to the existing system.
The destructive failure of the present system is what has provoked the global insurgency against that establishment, typified not only by Trump's victory in 2016, but by Brexit, the ongoing fight in Italy and Austria, etc. -- voters in many nations are rejecting the globalists, and electing leaders who refuse to submit to the post-Cold War geometry. The counter-attack against this insurgency has ranged from falsified prosecutorial efforts and "sting operations", such as those run by MI6 and the CIA/FBI in Russiagate with operatives such as Josef Mifsud -- whose role is under investigation by Barr and Durham, in cooperation with Italy -- to false flags, such as the attempt to start a war with Iran, and "Color Revolution" regime change operations, as in Hong Kong.
When the prosecutorial House of Cards known as the Mueller report collapsed, panic necessitated a new assault against Trump. While those pushing impeachment, such as Schiff and Nadler are deadly serious in their commitment to use the hearings to disrupt efforts to achieve peaceful cooperation between the U.S. with Russia and China, the present escalation is galvanizing an effort to defeat the putschists, as their latest efforts are increasingly being exposed. The Washington Times, for example, in an article titled "John Durham probe goes worldwide to examine spies and their Trump targets," lays out the deeper strategic implications, which previously had rarely been reported outside of LaRouche publications. The article quotes a former Pentagon spokesman and Trump campaign national security adviser, J.D. Gordon, who said, "The Trump-Russia collusion narrative was a clear attempt to subvert democracy by destroying a presidency and as many people in the president’s orbit as possible....Since the shady origins crisscross the globe from the U.K. to Italy to Ukraine to Australia and beyond, it’s only logical for Barr and Durham to pursue all credible leads and hold those accountable for any crimes they may have committed. Unless those responsible for the abuse of power that created Trump-Russia mass hysteria are punished, that sort of nefarious behavior will become the new normal in our media and politics.”
Thus, the real question facing those living in the Trans-Atlantic region, is whether they will step forward to lead the fight against the regime changers and their coup, in defense of the election of Donald Trump and the Constitution, or submit meekly to the genocidalists and allow them cause the likely destruction of life on the planet.
