Som I alle ved, så befinder vi os netop nu i en nedtælling til »sandhedens time«. Fra og med kl. 1:00-2:00 her i eftermiddag, under Det hvide Hus’ pressebriefing, står det klart, at [præsident] Obama vil nedlægge veto mod JASTA-loven (Senatslov 2040). Vi vil straks skrive telefonnummeret på skærmen, så I kan ringe til Kongressen og komme i kontakt med senatorerne og kongresmedlemmerne (i Repræsentanternes Hus, -red.) fra jeres stat, så I kan være mobiliserede under vores udsendelse. I skal slet ikke udsætte det. Ring. Sørg for, at jeres stemme bliver hørt. Sig til hvert enkelt kongresmedlem, at han/hun skal være stærk i sin forpligtelse over for at gøre Obamas veto ugyldigt. [Capitols omstillingsbord: 202-224-3131]

 Et længere, dansk uddrag vil blive udlagt på hjemmesiden senere i dag.

LaRouche PAC International Webcast Sept. 23, 2016

        MATTHEW OGDEN: Good afternoon! It's September 23rd, 2016. My
name is Matthew Ogden, and I would like to welcome all of you to
a special broadcast here from LaRouchepac.com on Friday
{afternoon}. We are broadcasting {early} our regularly scheduled
webcast this week at 4:00 Eastern Time (1:00 pm Pacific Time)
because we are in the midst of a showdown in Washington, D.C.,
where every minute counts.
        I'm joined in the studio by Jeff Steinberg, from {Executive
Intelligence Review}; and we're joined via video by Elliot
Greenspan, coordinator for LaRouche PAC activities in New York
City.
        As all of you know, we're in the countdown to the "moment of
truth" right now. As of 1:00-2:00 this afternoon, during the
White House press briefing, it remains clear that [President] Obama is committed to vetoing the JASTA Bill (Senate Bill 2040).
We're going to put, right now, the phone number on the screen for
you to call in to Congress in order to contact the Senators and
Representatives from your State, in order for you to be mobilized
{during the show}. Don't even delay. Call in. Make sure that your
voice is heard. Tell every single Member of Congress to remain
strong in their commitment to override Obama's veto. [Capitol
Switchboard: 202-224-3131]         This Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (or JASTA,
so-called), despite {unbelievable} pressure, threats, lies,
money, intimidation coming from the Saudi lobbying machine and
from the White House directly, at last reading on Capitol Hill,
Congress is still set to override this veto, delivering a very
historic first veto override of Obama's entire Presidency.
There's a {New York Times} article just earlier today, "Obama is
on the cusp of a rebuke he has long avoided — a veto override."
        What's become clear from the coverage, is that this has been
an all-out battle behind the scenes. Very, very quickly I'd like
to read just the beginning of a {New York Times} that came out on
Wednesday, September 21st, which was headlined "Fight Between
Saudis and 9/11 Families Escalates in Washington." I think this
gives a dramatic overview of exactly what has gone down behind
the scenes, and in public view, during the course of just the few
days that have occurred this week. It reads, in the beginning:

        "On Monday, a constellation of lobbyists for Saudi Arabia,
which has spent more than $5 million this past year to buy
influence in Washington, called a crisis meeting to try to stop
legislation allowing the families of victims of the Sept. 11
attacks to sue the Saudi government for any role in the plot.
        "On Tuesday, the 9/11 families, represented in their
multibillion-dollar lawsuits by lawyers including Jack Quinn, a
former White House counsel with deep relationships in Washington,
demonstrated outside the White House to pressure President Obama
not to veto the legislation, as he has vowed to do.
        "On Wednesday, these two powerful forces, one operating in
the shadows and the other more in the open, converged on Capitol
Hill in the culmination of one of the biggest and most emotional
lobbying fights of the year. The battle is a reflection of the
enduring dominance in Washington of the 9/11 families and the
diminishing clout here of Saudi Arabia, which once advanced its
agenda unencumbered in the West Wing and corridors of Congress."
        Now, I think it's very clear that what has happened, is the
central role that the 9/11 families — but also other citizens,
including those of you who are watching this broadcast here today
— have played in fueling this showdown. This showdown has been
fueled, despite $5 million in Saudi lobbying money, by the
activism of citizens like you. And that's why we're asking you,
{right now}, if you haven't called in to your Congressmen, to
call right now — 202-224-3121 — to say "Override Obama's
threatened veto of JASTA."
        This couldn't have been made more clear than during the
rallies that occurred in front of the White House on Tuesday
morning, and later in the day in front of the United States
Senate, by members of the 9/11 families and others. We do have
some clips from the press conference that occurred on the
Senate side of the Capitol on Tuesday afternoon, where Terry
Strada, Kaitlyn Strada, Alison Crowther — all three members of
the 9/11 families — and also Sen. [Richard] Blumenthal
absolutely demolished and debunked the lies that were coming out
of the Obama Administration and the Saudi lobbying machine.
        But before we get to that, I'd like to just very briefly ask
Jeff Steinberg to say, in brief, what Mr. LaRouche's marching
orders for this moment were, in the face of Obama's upcoming
threatened veto of the JASTA Bill. And then we will play this
press conference clip. So, Jeff, I'm going to let you just
summarize what Mr. LaRouche's comments were today.

        JEFF STEINBERG: It's pretty straight forward. He just simply
said that if Obama goes ahead with this veto, then he should be
immediately impeached. This is such an act of overt and witting
treason against not just the 9/11 families, but against the
United States as a whole.
        One of the news accounts today said that if Obama goes ahead
with his veto, then once again he's siding with the terrorists,
against the interests of the United States.
        In the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution, one of the first
responsibilities of the President is to defend the national
security of the United States: to "provide for the common
defense, and to "promote the general Welfare," and if President
Obama cannot see why it is in the urgent interests of all
Americans, and of anyone around the world, who wants to actually
fight against this terrorist scourge emanating from Saudi
Wahhabism and from the Saudi Royal Family, then they basically
better think about what the implications of this are.
        So, Mr. LaRouche's "marching orders" are very simple: Get
the veto override. Mobilize your Senator, mobilize your
Representative. But, on top of that, anyone who is unclear about
the strategic implications of an Obama veto, should think long
and hard and should join in the chorus that must immediately
demand his impeachment from office. This is a dead serious
matter, and that's the step that must be taken.

        OGDEN: Great! We're going to elaborate a little bit more on
the context of that a little bit later. Also, with the
developments that are occurring internationally. But right now, I
want to play a very short excerpt from the speeches of Terry
Strada, Kaitlyn Strada, Alison Crowther, and Sen. Blumenthal,
where they debunk every single media propaganda line that you're
going to hear coming from the White House and the Saudi lobbying
machine on the subject of the JASTA Bill. So, here's that
excerpt:

        TERRY STRADA: In our quest for the truth, accountability,
and justice for the murder of my husband and the thousands of
other innocent souls lost and injured, my colleagues and I have
worked tirelessly with Congress for over four years advocating
for the 9/11 families in support of the Justice Against Sponsors
of Terrorism Act (JASTA).
        I am frustrated, angry, and tired of the mis-truths being
carelessly spewed about this legislation, and I am here today to
set the record straight. The President's rationales to veto JASTA
hold no weight. They are 100% wrong. The issues the White House
and [unclear: 0:08:35.4] are raising now, concerns of reciprocal
laws or lawsuits, have all been considered, repeatedly, and
addressed.
        This issue about the possibility of threats of reciprocal
laws and lawsuits is a kneejerk reaction, raised by all novices
looking at the Bill, until they actually read the text and
consider the policies. Then, only those who would favor Saudi
interests seem to cling to the mis-truths. Those who favor sound,
anti-terror-financing policies, support JASTA.
        The most recent statement from the White House Press
Secretary, Josh Earnest, last Monday, when he told the White
House press corps that there were concerns about judges all over
the country designating terror organizations for U.S. sanctions,
is nonsensical. No judge overseeing a civil jury trial for
injuries would ever be imposing U.S. sanctions. That is simply
outlandish.
        To be crystal clear: JASTA does not and cannot have anything
to do with suing our diplomats. That issue is controlled by
something entirely different from JASTA — the Vienna Convention
on Diplomatic Relations. And, if {I} know it, I suspect the White
House knows this, too.
        Very importantly, JASTA has nothing to do with whether a
private citizen, or even a private company, can be sued for
alleged wrong-doing. JASTA deals with immunity of foreign States.
So, the White House's press comments that enacting JASTA will
threaten suits against the U.S. — which Mr. Earnest emphasized
as a risk of JASTA — are categorically untrue. I am sure the
White House knows that, too.
        And most importantly, our military is not at risk for being
sued if JASTA is enacted. The narrow text of JASTA, like our
legal history, specifically distinguishes between acts of war and
acts of terrorism. The text of the Bill, for anyone who cares to
read it — and it is surprisingly short — specifically excludes
acts of war. I'm sure the White House knows that, too.
        No one who seriously opposes terrorism disagrees with a bill
that at its core, accuses no one. All JASTA does, is simply ask
those accused of sponsoring terrorist attacks on U.S. soil, to
answer on the merits and to stand account for those accusations.
        For us, the 9/11 families and survivors, all we're asking
for is an opportunity to have our case heard in a courtroom.
Denying us justice is un-American. In our case, the existing and
still growing mountain of evidence against the Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia, demands that they address those accusations, if for
nothing else, to normalize our relations with a nation that
claims to be our ally.
        I would suggest, that if the Kingdom had no part in the
horrific attacks of 9/11, they should welcome the opportunity to
address the allegations head-on, and fix our relationship.
Instead, they have hired dozens of highly-paid lobbyists, who
roam the halls of Congress, intimidating our Members of Congress,
and trying to strong-arm our legislative process. This, too, is
un-American.
        We, the 9/11 community, have suffered far too long at the
hands of far too many that would prevent us from seeking
accountability before a jury of our peers. Neither the President,
nor Congress, nor the lobbyists for foreign kingdoms should be
permitted to make us wait another day to pass JASTA.

        SEN. RICHARD BLUMENTHAL: The basic objective here is to hold
accountable wrong-doers and law-breakers and evil-doers. Because
that is the rule of law. Behind that over-arching, seemingly
abstract ideal, is a loop-hole in the law. And it's a modest
loop-hole. The loop-hole is that a foreign actor or agent can
commit an atrocity in this country, but be immune from any kind
of legal accountability if the aiding and abetting is done
outside our boundaries. That's basically what may well be shown
in a court of law about the Saudi agents or operatives who aided
and abetted the 9/11 terrorists. There's a basic principle here.
If a foreign agent or actor gives a bag of money or a ton of
explosives to someone who then does harm in our country, and it
happens outside the country, there still should be legal
accountability. That's a loop-hole that Congress never intended.
        Take an analogy: If another country launched a missile from
[within] its borders, from its soil, that blew up an American
citizen, nobody would say, "Well, that's okay, because they did
it within their own borders." And the same principle applies
here. A foreign government that aids and abets an act of terror
that does harm in our country, should be held accountable, even
if those actions occurred outside our borders.
        I want to deal with the reasons given to oppose this
measure. And I want to say, with great respect to the President
of the United States, that he has a different perspective. He
conducts our nation's diplomacy. I respect him and his office and
his reasons for opposing this measure. But I disagree. Strongly,
and powerfully, with those reasons.
        If the Saudi Government is innocent, it has nothing to fear
from a day in court. If it is culpable, it should be held
accountable. And there is mounting evidence, revealed in the 28
pages, kept secret for so long, about potential Saudi complicity.
        So, I'm urging the President, as I did in a letter with my
colleague Sen. [Chuck] Schumer about ten days ago, to sign this
measure, and I believe that there are now, and there will be,
well more than the necessary votes to override this veto. It was
unanimously passed, and I believe it will be overwhelmingly
approved again, if need be.

        KAITLYN STRADA: After hearing our cries for justice, our US
Senate and House of Representatives unanimously passed
legislation called the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act
— JASTA. This bill would give me and thousands of other children
who lost their parents on 9/11, the opportunity to see some
degree of accountability. JASTA does not determine whether the
accused foreign state is actually responsible; the accused just
wouldn't get a free pass on accountability. Under existing law, a
foreign state alleged to be responsible for a car wreck has no
free pass and must face the music; the same should be for
terrorist attacks that kill or cause injury to Americans on US
soil. It is the right thing.
        So, I am imploring Congress to override the President's
impending veto, and help my family and all the 9/11 families and
survivors seek the justice we deserve. Fifteen years is far too
long for us to have to wait already. The veto should be
overridden at [the] first opportunity, and we should not be
forced to wait a day longer. Please show that you, our elected
officials, stand on {our} side; that of the American citizens. Do
not yield to the pressure of powerful foreign influences looking
to escape accountability. It's past time to enact JASTA.

        ALISON CROWTHER: I've come here today along with many other
9/11 families and victims in support of the Justice Against
Sponsors of Terrorism Act. The purpose of this act is to hold
accountable individuals in nations that fund terrorist activities
in our country. JASTA, if passed, will open pathways to choke off
foreign sources of funding and bankrupt terrorism. We first and
foremost exhort President Obama to approve JASTA. We are engaged
in an insidious war of hearts and minds; an epic battle for the
soul of humanity. To quote President Franklin Delano Roosevelt,
"The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself." If we allow
fear of potential consequences to rule over right action, the bad
guys will win. JASTA is a weapon in our nonviolent arsenal to
fight against those who would intentionally target and perpetrate
heinous crimes against innocent men, women, children, and the
unborn. If President Obama decides to veto JASTA, we trust that
the Senate and House, who represent the will of the 9/11 families
and the citizens of our great country, will stand by their
unanimous convictions and override a Presidential veto of JASTA
without delay. Thank you very much.

        OGDEN: Now while you were watching that video, we received a
breaking news announcement; and I'm going to let Jeff announce to
you what has just developed.

        STEINBERG: At 4:27 this afternoon, President Obama signed
the veto of JASTA. Which now means that the onus is on all of you
and on the members of the US Senate and then the US House of
Representatives to deliver a unanimous rebuke to a President who
puts his future business dealings with Saudi Arabia and his
commitment to cover up the crimes of 9/11, ahead of the interests
of the American people. This is a shameful moment for the
institution of the Presidency; and I hope all of you will take
that absolutely seriously and do your part as citizens. As Mr.
LaRouche said, "This is an unconscionable act by President Obama
that deserves his immediate impeachment. But first and foremost,
he's got to be delivered a brutal message by the Congress, by the
Senate; but first by you, the American people that this is
thoroughly unacceptable. He will go down in infamy for this
hideous act on his part."
        I just want to amplify a little bit what the stakes are in
this fight. We all know that 2,997 people perished on 9/11; but
the death and destruction from that event continues to this day.
I want to read you a news item that I wrote earlier this
afternoon, just before coming to the studio; and I think you'll
understand why this is an appropriate thing to be reading to you
right now.
        "On the weekend of the 15th anniversary of the September 11,
2001 attacks earlier this month, {Newsweek} magazine published an
extensive report on the tens of thousands of New Yorkers and
other first responders who are suffering severe medical
conditions as the result of their heroics following the 9/11
attacks. The {Newsweek} story was graphically headlined, '9/11's
Second Wave; Cancer and Other Diseases Linked to the 2001 Attacks
Are Surging'. While much of the article was devoted to
heartbreaking case studies of the first responders who are now
either dead or are suffering serious illnesses as the result of
their efforts, the statistics provided in the article are
harrowing, and reveal the extent to which the consequences of the
9/11 attacks continue to take lives."
        This is a quote from {Newsweek}: "|'Doctors with the World
Trade Center Health Program, which the Federal government created
in the aftermath of the attacks, have linked nearly 70 types of
cancer to Ground Zero. Many people have fallen victim to cancers
their doctors are rare, aggressive, and particularly hard to
treat.' More than 411 emergency rescue workers died in the
immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center;
and that number has reached 1064 as of July 2016, according to
data that {Newsweek} obtained from the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention and OSHA. But the full account is
staggering: 'As many as 400,000 people are estimated to be
affected by diseases such as cancers and mental illnesses linked
to September 11th.' 400,000. That figure includes those who lived
and worked within a mile and a half of Ground Zero in Manhattan
and Brooklyn. The vast majority of whom still don't know they're
at risk. Mark Farfel, director of the World Trade Center Health
Registry, which tracks the health of more than 71,000 rescue
workers and survivors, says 'Many people don't connect the
symptoms they have today to September 11th.'
        "Dr. Michael Crane, director of a clinic at Mount Sinai
Hospital which treats 22,000 rescue and recovery workers from
9/11, told {Newsweek} that of the 75,000 people enrolled in the
World Trade Center's Health Program, 5,441 have been diagnosed
with 9/11 cancers. {Newsweek} reported that 'Today, 15 years
after the attacks, doctors are starting to understand why people
are still dying. When the towers came down, they say, they
released a massive plume of carcinogens; turning lower Manhattan
into a cesspool of cancer and deadly disease.'
        "A National Resources Defense Council report issued soon
after the 9/11 attacks estimated that the North Tower alone
released 400 tons of asbestos into the atmosphere, along with
lead, mercury, volatile organic compounds, and deadly poisons.
Among New York City firefighters, the cancer rate after 9/11
increased by between 19% and 30% over pre-9/11 rates. The
Environmental Protection Agency, however, issued a report one
week after the 9/11 attacks, declaring that the air within a
16-acre area around Ground Zero was safe to breathe. An EPA
Inspector General's report in 2003 found that there was no basis
for EPA Administrator Christine Todd Whitman making that
statement. The IG report concluded, 'The White House Council on
Environmental Quality influenced, through the collaborative
process, the information that the EPA communicated to the public
through its early press releases when it convinced the EPA to add
reassuring statements and delete cautionary ones.' So far, at
least 1140 people who lived and worked in the immediate vicinity
of Ground Zero, have died from diseases brought on by the attack;
and that number is incomplete. An unknown number of first
responders and those who were in the immediate area of Ground
Zero, are suffering from mental illnesses similar to the PTSD
suffered by returning Iraq and Afghan war veterans."
        So, the body count is continuing, and therefore, the
magnitude of the President's crime in failing to sign JASTA into
law, is that much greater.

        OGDEN: Now, we had a memorial series of concerts that was
sponsored by the Foundation for the Revival of Classical Culture,
and members of the Schiller Institute chorus participated in
these two weeks ago. This was the context in which Terry Strada
made some very prescient remarks in the prelude to the Monday
concert that occurred in Morristown, New Jersey; at which she
said Obama is nothing but a spokesman for the Saudi regime. And
despite overwhelming pressure from the entire Congress, from the
American people, Obama and a lot of the other members of the
Saudi lobbying machine have acted on orders from Riyadh and from
London to shut down the JASTA bill. The threats have been
immense. The kinds of blackmail and intimidation — including the
European Union entering this discussion and saying that this
would be a systemic crisis; the European Union said, "harm to the
international order, if the JASTA bill were to take effect."
        So, as you can see, the activities of the LaRouche Movement
in collaboration with the 9/11 Families and other citizen
activists have really, really changed the course of history and
have put the entire Obama-Saudi-London establishment on the
rails.

        STEINBERG: I want to say something about this EU issue,
because people may remember that President Obama was in London
prior to the Brexit vote that took place in June, and intervened
into the internal political affairs of Britain; by basically
threatening that if Brexit passed, then Britain's role as a
critical ally of the United States within the European Union
would be diminished. It was considered to be a crass and really
impolitic intervention. The idea that the White House clearly
solicited this comment from the European Union, I hope will have
a backlash effect on legislators and all of you out there, and
that the message will be that this kind of foreign interference
is a slap at the sovereignty of the United States and it should
assure that the overwhelming vote of both Houses of Congress goes
to overriding President Obama's shameful veto.
        Yesterday, at hearings on Capitol Hill, Defense Secretary
Ash Carter and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Joseph Dunford
lied through their teeth shamelessly; and claimed that the
passage of JASTA would jeopardize the security of American
soldiers overseas. As you heard from Senator Blumenthal, these
arguments are preposterous; they're the height of sophistry, and
they reflect the actual morality of this administration. This is
disgusting.

        OGDEN: I'm going to hand it over to Elliott right now in New
York City. The activity on the ground is intense, both in terms
of forcing an override on this JASTA veto; but also activity on
ushering in a New Paradigm, a new international economic order,
which is now on the table for discussion at the United Nations
General Assembly meeting. So, I'm going to let Elliott say a
little more about the situation there.

        ELLIOTT GREENSPAN: Thank you, Matt. Let me begin by picking
up on what you indicated. Four concerts — this is now two weeks
ago — four concerts; a living memorial to the 3000 who perished
on 9/11, to the first responders, to the survivors, to the
families, to the millions of victims in regime-change wars caused
by the Bush and Obama administrations. A living memorial. We had
upwards of 3000 New Yorkers at these concerts; we had reached at
least 100,000, probably hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers in
the run-up to this, for the purpose of focussing the city, the
metropolitan area, the nation, on 9/11; on the implication of the
declassification of the 28 pages, on the potential of a
breakthrough with JASTA. So, this goes back a couple of weeks.
Then, we come to the UN General Assembly.
        Among other events at the General Assembly, is the
intervention by the Saudi government spokesman [inaud; 30:49] before the General Assembly — that is, before the world —
saying that JASTA was an affront to the sovereignty of Saudi
Arabia. At the same time, you have the {Wall Street Journal} in
New York editorializing against JASTA; you have the {New York
Post} with a Congressional op-ed supporting JASTA; you have two
{New York Times} major articles in the last two days. This is
super-charged. In that context, we released — twice this week —
the {Hamiltonian} editions 5 and 6 of the LaRouche newspaper
{Hamiltonian}; which people can see on this website. Which had
headlines "Traitor Obama Stalls on JASTA; Impeachment Is Nigh",
and "Obama's Doomsday: First JASTA; Next Glass-Steagall". Insofar
as Obama has perpetuated the Bush-Cheney policy, the
British-Saudi policy of regime-change war, of international
terrorism, we took the gloves off in Manhattan over these last
days, targetting Obama. We had banners at our rallies throughout
especially the East Side near the UN, midtown, Upper West Side:
"LaRouche: Cameron Is Out; Make Obama Next!"; "Good-bye Cameron:
Take the Pig with You", which had a picture of a pig with Obama's
face on the pig; "Duterte Was Right! Obama is a Son-of-a-B****";
"Obama's Legacy — 5 Wars, 60 Million Refugees"; "Obama Backs
ISIS in Syria"; and it goes on like this. That is, we hammered
away at this.
        Let me, however, locate this in the broader context of the
UN General Assembly. You have a revolution to finish off the
British Empire on the 4th and 5th of September at the Hangzhou
summit of the Group of 20; led by the Chinese under the direction
of President Xi Jinping. You have the creation of a new financial
architecture, of an international governance agency — the G20 —
which is committed to a new economic order; the New Silk Road, a
World Land-Bridge, which ideas were put forward in 1975 by Lyndon
LaRouche. And brought by LaRouche's allies, in particular
Ambassador Fred Wills, to the United Nations General Assembly for
the first time 40 years ago this week. Without going through this
history, those ideas, which we've organized for day by day over
40 years, have now created such a new economic foundation based
on scientific and technological progress, great projects of
infrastructure. This occurs at a moment when Deutsche Bank, the
Italian banks, the London and Wall Street banks are facing their
demise; far beyond the 2008 explosion.
        In that context, you have the creation of this new system.
The Chinese government, under Premier Li Qeqiang, over the last
several days, has brought the breakthrough, the commitment of the
Group of 20 summit to the United Nations General Assembly. What
he has done, is to address on the sidelines of the General
Assembly, 16 international organizations; and he put forward the
conception of the UN Sustainable Development 2030 Agenda, which
is a commitment adopted a year ago by the UN General Assembly to
eliminate poverty by the year 2030. Except much of the
trans-Atlantic leadership, the Obama leadership, much of the
Western European leadership, the London-Wall Street oligarchy
posed sustainable development in terms of an orientation toward
global genocide. What the Chinese have done, is to emphasize the
development part of sustainable development; and they've enlisted
the United Nations Development Program in a first Memorandum of
Understanding between the UNDP and the Chinese government that
there is a transformation building as a result of the leadership
of President Xi with President Putin, with the BRICS nations as a
unit, which has taken the several summits — the G20 of early
September — into the General Assembly and from here into the
BRICS summit in mid-October in India. You have the unfolding of
this new economic potential for humanity. The Chinese have
standing on the matter. As President Xi put it at Hangzhou, they
have eliminated for 700 million Chinese; they will eliminate
poverty for 57 million more by 2020. They're spreading this
through the New Silk Road already to at least 70 nations, and
soon 100.
        The great question is, what is the United States doing in
response? What is Western Europe doing? In a discussion with Mr.
and Mrs. LaRouche this morning, Mrs. LaRouche emphasized that
China is the stellar nation fighting for this perspective; but
you do not have any such thing coming from the US or from Western
Europe yet, and therefore, the treason of Obama. Obama, who
beyond aiding and abetting ISIS, al-Qaeda, al-Nusra,
international terrorism — the irony at the UN this week of Obama
convening a summit on the refugee crisis; well, Obama created the
refugee crisis. What we have created with an international
alliance under President Putin's leadership, and an international
development orientation into Syria and Iraq and the entire
region, is that we've created the solution to the refugee crisis.
        So, finally in this regard, in our work on the streets of
Manhattan this week, you had a super-charged environment. You had
a battleground there. There was, for example, a demonstration
heavily funded by George Soros and the neo-cons attacking the
Presidency of Rouhani of Iran; about 500 demonstrators attacking
Rouhani. Joe Lieberman becomes the spokesman of that
demonstration; and Joe Lieberman announces that it's Iran that is
responsible — he says — for the mass murder of Syrians. Daniel
Burke, LaRouche PAC leading organizer in the city, happens upon
this demonstration; and he yells out, "Lieberman, you're lying!
Obama, the Saudis are responsible for the mass murder in Syria."
And there's a short dialogue and Lieberman at some point seems to
agree with Daniel Burke. Then there was a demonstration organized
by the Syrian-American Forum, large numbers of Syrian-Americans
and others there, and Lynne Speed — leading LaRouche organizer
in New York — takes the microphone and she outlines what we have
done to create the potential for this transformation in Syria.
One of the Syrians there said, "What about Senator Richard
Black?" And Lynne said, "Yes, he just spoke at a Schiller
Institute conference which was addressed by Jeff Steinberg, by
Helga LaRouche, by Ambassador Jafari of Syria." And Lynne
develops the potential to end this regime-change policy by virtue
of the G20 agenda, of the Chinese and Russian agenda. To crush
terrorism militarily, and to develop, to reconstruct that region.
        Daniel was interviewed at the same time by ABC Television in
New York, who said, "Well, President Obama is giving his final UN
address. What do you anticipate?" And Daniel said, "It's going to
be treason; it's going to be a disaster. Obama has created the
refugee crisis," and he spelled out the alternative policy which
is what we now have on the table.
        Let me conclude this way. A few hours ago, in our midtown
New York organizing with the new {Hamiltonian} — and I should
emphasize that the lead report in the {Hamiltonian}, the banner
headline is "Appeal to the UN General Assembly: A New Paradigm
for the Common Aims of Mankind". Helga LaRouche penned this
appeal explicitly to build upon the G20 breakthrough; the G20
revolution. And the challenge that she posed to the governments
of the world, many of whom are receiving this {Hamiltonian};
we've gotten out about 4000 {Hamiltonian}s in several days. We
will intensify this over the weekend and into next week, with
that LaRouche PAC – Schiller Institute appeal. The idea is the
challenge to the governments of the world to join China and
Russia and India and the BRICS; to join LaRouche under LaRouche's
leadership. What happened this morning as we were distributing
this and organizing, a Chinese businessman came to our table, and
he said, "If the US and China work together, we can solve all the
problems of the world. Drugs; terrorism; war. But the US doesn't
want to do it. India and China are doing things; in the US, it's
just talk and fighting. If you want to be rich, build a road. It
makes everyone richer. If more Americans were like you," he said
to our organizers, "we could solve all problems." I think that's
a useful microcosm. The LaRouche Movement, the new Presidency,
which LaRouche is creating, centered in New York with the
{Hamiltonian}; working with China with the BRICS countries.
That's my report.

        OGDEN: Thank you very much Elliott. As can be made no more
clear, the lever of history is in our hands in terms of every
single element. I think if you're inspired by that kind of
intensity of organizing, as many members of the LaRouche PAC New
York City chapter, activists with the New York City were engaged
in on Tuesday; they took the bus down to Washington DC to be
involved in these JASTA rallies. That made a huge difference in
the White House rally and the Senate rally. These are people who
have the physical means to do that. You, right now, can pick up
the telephone and call Congress. We still have a few more minutes
on the East Coast before Congress leaves for the weekend. Call
them now! That's why we're recording at this early time; we're
going to display again the phone number on the screen. This is
the Capitol switchboard; you can call both of your Senators, and
you can call your House of Representatives member, and tell them
now is the time to override Obama's veto.
        Jeff, I know you want to follow up on that report from
Elliott. I think some of these developments over the weekend also
in terms of the situation in Syria on the ground, underscore even
more how critically important it is right now that Obama is
receiving this sort of rebuke from inside Washington DC.

        STEINBERG: I want to say two things. Number one, I think for
those citizens out there who've not engaged in this kind of level
of political mobilization, let me be very clear. If you walk into
any office on Capitol Hill, the first thing you encounter are
several young people, usually they're new employees — fresh out
of college — sometimes they're even interns. They're there
taking phone calls. And they are instructed by every member of
Congress, to take detailed notes on every constituent call that
comes in there. Those members of Congress — and of course, we're
two months away from elections in which every member of the House
and one-third of the Senate are up for re-election. They want to
know what issues are on their constituents' minds. When Congress
was considering whether to give President Obama the authority to
bomb Syria back in September of 2013, the switchboards were
ringing off the hook on Capitol Hill. Every office received
massive numbers of phone calls, emails, letters; and they were
running 100 to 1 against any kind of new wars in the Middle East
involving the United States. So, you do make a difference.
        I think the other thing that needs to be remembered in the
context of what Elliott just reported, is that one of the things
that is going on, on both sides of the Atlantic, is that the
entire financial system is crumbling at an accelerating rate. If
anything, we are also at a moment where not only is it necessary
to pass JASTA and to get this treacherous President out of office
— not wait 'til January, not wait 'til the November elections —
but now! After what he's just done, it should be clear as day.
But the other thing that's got to be done immediately, is
Congress must take up the Glass-Steagall Act. There are bills in
both Houses of Congress to reinstate Glass-Steagall; which means
breaking up the too-big-to-fail banks.
        Now, the FDIC, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
which insures your deposits in the Federal commercial banks
across the United States, has issued a report in the last few
days in which they reported in great detail and with great alarm,
that the major banks of Europe and the United States have once
again built up such a mountain of leveraged debt that they could
blow at any moment. The bank that stands out above all others is
Deutsche Bank, which is notionally a German bank but really is
headquartered in London and is the largest bank in the world in
terms of derivatives exposure. But Societe Generale of France,
Credit Suisse, the Union Bank of Switzerland, Goldman-Sachs, and
a number of the other major European banks — Banco Santander of
Spain; the leverage that these banks have built up criminally, is
worse than where things stood at the time that Lehman Brothers
blew out. The leverage of debt to reserves of Deutsche Bank is
over 37 to 1; and all the other banks that we're talking about
here have leverage ratios of 25 to 1, 30 to 1. So, this whole
system is about to blow; and once again, the Obama
administration, in the same way it's opposed to JASTA, is opposed
to reinstating Glass-Steagall. Congress has to really stand up;
and you've got to be the spine that pushes that issue forward. As
well as what we've been talking about in the first part of this
show; about the urgency of a veto override of JASTA and moves to
bring this President down all together.

        OGDEN: I could foresee Glass-Steagall being the second veto
override of Obama's administration.

        STEINBERG: Right; exactly. And it's got to happen in
September; we can't wait 'til after November for this, it's too
risky.

        OGDEN: Absolutely. I want to leave you with a quote from
Kristen Brightweiser, who's one of the widows of 9/11; her
husband was killed in the 9/11 attacks. She said — and I think
this is right to the point: "It is reprehensible that one man is
standing between justice for the murder of 3000 people and this
legislation becoming law. The President and the Congress should
be listening to American citizens, not a bunch of lobbyists who
represent a foreign nation."
        So, I think it couldn't be more clear at this point that
this is the most dramatic development of recent history. The
degree to which the Obama administration has been forced to put
itself out there, to show its true colors in the face of
unanimous opposition from both parties of the United States
Congress; we never could have reached this point without the
concerted action of citizens of the United States under the
leadership of LaRouche PAC and allied forces. It is a testament
to the fact that the kind of focussed deployment of our
operations into New York City and elsewhere across the country,
have had a substantial historical effect. We do have our finger
on the lever of history; not only in terms of what's happening
now at this very moment with JASTA and the showdown there with
the Obama White House. But also what's happening on the world
stage, with what's occurring now in the United Nations General
Assembly; the transition into a completely New Paradigm, a new
international economic world order. Which is what has been on the
table for 40 years plus, coming out of the leadership of Lyndon
and Helga LaRouche, and the development of the entire New Silk
Road, the World Land-Bridge. This is the future of the United
States. If we are able to take our government back, to take our
Constitutional republic back into the hands of the American
citizens and out of the hands of this Obama-London-Riyadh
triangle; and if we are able to force through the Glass-Steagall
Act in a timely and urgent manner, we can immediately become
participants in the New Paradigm, as has been so clearly
illustrated by what is happening in China, what's happening with
China's alliances with the other BRICS nations, and what I'm sure
will be the number one issue on the table this weekend at the
United Nations General Assembly summit.
        So, that appeal that Elliott referenced from Helga
Zepp-LaRouche, which is now going into the hands of UN
ambassadors and others as we speak, this is critical; at the same
time that I know that over the course of this weekend, everything
will be dominated by this fight over the JASTA veto override.
Congress will be in session at the beginning of next week; and as
much pressure as can be brought right now before they leave their
offices for Friday evening, and everything that can be done in
the districts. The district offices, high-profile appearances,
op-eds, call into radio shows; everything that you can do over
the next 24-48 hours, will determine what happens on Monday
morning when Congress comes back into session.
        So again, the number is on the screen — 202 224-3121 — you
can call into your Congressional office; you still have a few
moments left to do so. Circulate this broadcast as widely as you
can. That video excerpt that we showed you with Terry Strada, the
other 9/11 families, and Senator Blumenthal; that's available on
the LaRouche PAC website. You can circulate that, too. That
debunks all of the lies that are coming from the Obama White
House and the Saudi political lobbying machine; you can use that
to inform your own activism over the course of this week.
        So, I'd like to thank Jeff Steinberg for joining us here
today. Elliott, do you have any final words from New York that
you want to tag onto the end of this show here?

        GREENSPAN: Insofar as Lyndon LaRouche's objective with the
creation of the {Hamiltonian} newspaper was to launch a new
Presidency of the United States, a new institution of the
Presidency independent of these hated candidates, independent of
Obama, this is a fascinating and decisive moment; where Obama,
for the first time in his entire Presidency, is about to be
overidden. Where Obama can be brought down. Jeff emphasized
LaRouche's point about impeachment; we will now take the
{Hamiltonian} onto the streets in a heightened way tomorrow
morning and Sunday and into next week, to build both this process
of override, potential impeachment, Glass-Steagall, and the new
Presidency. And you ought to come to the New York town meeting
tomorrow, the dialogue with LaRouche.

        OGDEN: Right; and that will broadcast live also on the
LaRouche PAC website. So, thank you very much. This is a
revolutionary moment; I'm glad that we were able to join you live
today as this news broke. We hope that you will be very active
over the coming 24 hours. Please stay tuned to larouchepac.com;
and good night.
