“After three years of lies and smears and slander, the Russia hoax is finally dead. The collusion delusion is over.”
With these words, President Donald Trump opened a raucous rally in front of more than 15,000 enthusiastic supporters in Grand Rapids, Michigan on March 28, celebrating the release of the report by special counsel Robert Mueller on March 22. According to the summary submitted by Attorney General William Barr, Mueller found no evidence of collusion, nor of obstruction of justice, thus vindicating Trump’s repeated claim that the investigation was a “witch hunt.”
In his remarks, Trump did not merely proclaim vindication. He issued a call to action, asking those at the rally to join him in defeating the anti-Trump coup plotters, who are foolishly continuing their campaign to remove him from office. He forcefully denounced leading Democrats, such as Representatives Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler, who are using House committees to expand the “investigation.” Trump said they “need to decide whether they will continue to defraud the public,” now that Russiagate has been exposed as a fraud. He also excoriated the media, and intelligence officials who served under President Obama, such as former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, suggesting that both of them could be prosecuted for lying, and using their positions to illegally unleash the witch hunt.
In an interview with Fox television’s Sean Hannity before the rally, Trump stated that he will soon release all documents related to the attack on him, including those compiled by the FBI, which used the fictional dossier written by “former” British MI6 operative Christopher Steele, to get surveillance warrants from the secret FISA court, as well as the “302" reports on FBI interrogations, text messages and emails from the coup plotters, and more. “I have plans to declassify and release,” he said. “We must never let this happen to another president. I hope they don’t get away with it....It’s an investigation that should never have happened.” In particular, on the role of corrupt leading officials of the FBI who were part of the coup apparat, he said, “They wanted to do a subversion....It was treason. It was really treason.”
That Trump survived the persistent and vicious assault against him is in itself quite remarkable. He had to endure years of media leaks and lies, attacks on his family, his businesses and his associates, many of whom were threatened and bullied, to get them to turn against him, as his former attorney Michael Cohen did. Mueller also secured fraudulent indictments of “Russians” for cyber meddling, which will never be tested in court, and convictions for “process crimes” unrelated to the assignment given him. Yet, in his final report, Mueller was forced to admit there was no proof that Trump colluded with foreign efforts to steal the 2016 election.
This conclusion represents a harsh blow to the anti-Trump fanatics committed to his impeachment, leaving them reeling, stammering that they will “go further” than the special counsel in their hysterical resolve to overturn their defeat by Trump in the 2016 election. The Schiller Institute’s Helga Zepp LaRouche, who has taken the lead in exposing the fraud behind the attempted coup, said in a webcast on March 28 that it is not surprising that Trump’s opponents will continue, as the report “did not lead to the desired result,” i.e. his removal! But now is not time for complacency, she added. Instead, “Now is the time for reckoning” for those who ran the attempted coup.
Who and Why Must Now be Answered
In her March 28 webcast, LaRouche made clear that she is not talking about revenge in pursuing the coup plotters, but of something more profound, which is a matter of war and peace. The attempted putsch against Trump was never simply about disgruntled supporters of Hillary Clinton seeking revenge for her electoral defeat. It was launched by the highest levels of British intelligence, in collaboration with accomplices from the Bush and Obama-Clinton networks, to prevent Trump from overturning the post-Cold War consensus of using geopolitical confrontation to protect the British-directed unilateral world order, which was imposed following the collapse of the Soviet Union. This imperial order is being challenged by the rise of China, and its Belt-and-Road Initiative, which is adding nations as collaborators every day, and which is occurring as the London-based Trans-Atlantic financial and trading system is following the Soviet system into the trash heap of history.
It is precisely this “systemic crisis” of the London-Wall Street financial system which Lyndon LaRouche warned of, and to which he directed the policy solutions contained in his Four Laws—for national banking, credit for infrastructure and manufacturing, and a science driver based on a revived space program and the development of fusion energy.
In his presidential campaign, and throughout his presidency, Trump made clear that he wants to lead the U.S. out of this collapsing order, as it has been defined by endless wars, regime change policy, false flag provocations, and a bubble economy, which has again built up a level of unsustainable debt which could implode at any time. Rather than preparing to go to war with China and Russia to defend this financially and morally bankrupt system, as the imperial neocons intend, Trump said he wants to achieve a peaceful, mutually beneficial relationship with the two other leading powers. He emphasized this again in his Grand Rapids rally, saying the U.S. should have a “great relationship with Russia and China,” but that “fake news” turned it into Russiagate.
That Trump understands the British role is evident in tweets he sent out March 18, when he retweeted comments from William Craddick of Disobedient Media. Craddick tweeted that “Russiagate was designed in part to help the UK counter Russian influence by baiting the United States into taking a hard line against them....Just another episode of the Great Game.” A second retweet by Trump was a Craddick retweet of a comment from Democratic Party presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, who wrote that “Short-sighted politicians and media pundits who’ve spent the last 2 years accusing Trump as a Putin puppet have brought us the expensive new Cold War & arms race. How? Because Trump now does everything he can to prove he’s not a Putin puppet—even if it brings us closer to nuclear war.”
Up until now, other than Mrs. LaRouche and a handful of other courageous individuals, such as former NSA Technical Director and whistleblower Bill Binney and his associates, the assertion in the Mueller report that the Russians did interfere in the U.S. election has gone unchallenged. In her webcast comments, Mrs. LaRouche identified the escalation against Venezuela, led by Bolton, Pompeo and Pence, members of both parties in Congress, and the same media hacks still smarting from being slapped down by the Mueller report, as part of the effort to trap Trump into a position on Venezuela against Russia and China. She said that, .”..unless this apparatus is dismantled, they will find new ways to entrap” Trump, calling the Venezuela escalation “the continuation of the coup against Trump, with other colors,” a reference to the launching of “color revolutions,” as in Ukraine, as regime change operations under the cover of “humanitarian” efforts.
In an interview done with me on radio station KTKK in Salt Lake City this week, Bill Binney fully endorsed Mrs. LaRouche’s insistence that the perpetrators from the UK intelligence community and the anglophile “shadow government” in the U.S. must be “held accountable.” If this does not happen, “they will do it again, lying as they did to get us into war in Vietnam (in the 1960s), and with the lies about weapons of mass destruction to justify the overthrow of Saddam and mass murder in Iraq,” and again with the lies from the “British and Brennan about Russian hacking.” Binney has conducted the most thorough forensic investigation into the charge that the Russians hacked the DNC and Clinton campaign computers—which is at the heart of Russiagate—and refuted it on every level. He said he knew from August 2016 that the charge was a fake, and that, instead of hacking by Russia, he proved that the data leak was the result of an “inside job,” with a thumb drive or similar device. Yet, despite his known expertise in this area, he was never called to testify by Mueller, and his reports have been blacked out of the major media.
Binney said the intelligence agencies must be “cleaned up—President Trump has the potential to do this, to give the intelligence agencies a double lobotomy!” If this is not done, they will continue to “build their empire of destruction, with full support of a submissive media.”
While the combative spirit shown by Trump in the Grand Rapids is a sign that he is up to the fight, the question which now remains is whether the American people will respond to this call to action, and join with the LaRouche movement to use this opportunity to take down the corrupt British-U.S. networks responsible for war, chaos and poverty.
