Nedtælling 45 dage!
En mobilisering for LaRouches Fire Love
som emnet for Trumps ’State of the Union’!
LaRouche PAC Internationale Webcast, 15. dec., 2017.

 

Vært Matthew Ogden: I mandags indledte vi vores nedtælling på 50 dage (se mandags-opdatering her); 50 dage til præsident Trump holder sin State of the Union tale (Tale om nationens tilstand), der er planlagt til den 30. januar, 2018. Vi er nu fem dage inde i denne nedtælling, så vi har 45 dage tilbage til State of the Union-talen. Lyndon LaRouches og LaRouche PAC’s erklærede hensigt er at sikre, at kernebudskabet i denne State of the Union-tale handler om det økonomiske program, der er nødvendigt for at genoplive den amerikanske økonomi for at bringe USA ind i det nye paradigme, som det er blevet initieret af Kina. Indholdet af dette program er selvfølgelig indeholdt i de fire økonomiske love i Hamiltons tradition, som Lyndon LaRouche har forfattet, og som er blevet cirkuleret vidt omkring af medlemmer af LaRouche Political Action Committee og aktivister her i USA. Dette vil vi gennemgå i detaljer.

Et hurtigt overblik; dette omfatter: en genindførelse af Glass-Steagall; en tilbagevenden til et nationalbanksystem i Hamiltons tradition; anvendelsen af den føderale regerings kreditskabende mekanisme til omgående at øge den amerikanske arbejdsstyrkes produktive evne og til at genopbygge infrastrukturen og det nødvendige, næste stadium af den amerikanske økonomis platform; og den indeholdte faktor i alt dette – et nationalt, forceret program for rumforskning og fusionskraft. Det er den videnskabsmotor, som er det lim, der holder hele programmet sammen.

Vi vil senere annoncere og vi har nogle billeder, men en ny brochure, der indeholder dette program, vil blive cirkuleret i begyndelsen af næste uge. Dette bliver det kernemateriale, I har brug for, for at hjælpe os med at mobilisere de tilbageværende dage af nedtællingen på 50 dage. Jeg sætter dette på skærmen.

Dette er et smugkig af forsiden af den kommende brochure, som bliver udgivet i begyndesen af næste uge. Her ser man, at titlen er »Lyndon LaRouches Fire Love – De fysisk-økonomiske principper for USA’s genrejsning; Amerikas fremtid på den Nye Silkevej«. Og på bagsiden ser man et fint billede af Verdenslandbroen. Dette er det udviklingsprogram, som vil blive forlængelsen af den Nye Silkevej; og dernæst opregnes LaRouches Fire Love. Dette bliver selvfølgelig et meget afgørende materiale for os at cirkulere i den kommende periode.

Det andet, som selvfølgelig meget hurtigt er ved at udvikle sig i løbet af denne 50-dages nedtælling, er en komplet kovending af dette kupforsøg mod det amerikanske præsidentskab, som er blevet kørt med baggrund i det såkaldte »Russiagate«-hysteri. Dette svindelnummer er blevet brugt som en kølle i et forsøg på at bringe dette præsidentskab til fald og forsøge at drive en kile ind mellem ethvert nyttigt og potentielt produktivt samarbejde mellem USA og Rusland. Vi ser nu også, at dette udvides til at forsøge at drive en kile ind mellem USA og Kina. Her er tingene vendt rundt og har givet bagslag mod dem, der har kørt dette kupforsøg, ved at komme frem i dagens lys og er meget dramatisk. Vi har set afsløringen af hele spindet af korruption hos det personel, der var involveret i denne såkaldte efterforskning, og det er blevet klart, at, endnu før Donald Trump var blevet indsat, eller blot valgt, var der en kernegruppe af disse folk, der havde gjort det til deres egen, personlige mission at gøre alt, de kunne – inklusive at arbejde internt fra den amerikanske regerings institutioner – for at forsøge at bringe dette præsidentskab til fald. Dette er blevet afsløret på forskellig vis. Som I får at høre Helga Zepp-LaRouche sige i et kort uddrag fra Schiller Institut-webcastet fra i går, sagde hun, med sine egne ord, at »anklagerne er blevet de anklagede«. Dette åbner op for en helt ny, strategisk dimension.

Jeg vil nu afspille et kort uddrag af Helga Zepp-LaRouches bemærkninger i går i hendes internationale webcast:

(Hele Helgas webcast på dansk her)

Her følger resten af fredags-webcastet i engelsk udskrift:

HELGA ZEPP-LAROUCHE:  This is very fascinating
because exactly the opposite of what was the intention is now
happening; namely that those people who tried to prove collusion
between Trump and the Russian government are now the target of a
potential investigation themselves, with quite incredible
implications.  There are already calls out that all of these
people — from Mueller, McCabe, Bruce Ohr, Peter Strzok, and
various other individuals — that they should all be led away in
handcuffs.  This is the demand of a former judge and state
attorney, Jeanine Pirro, on Fox TV, and what she referred to is
the fact that now it is becoming very clear in the hearings in
the House of Representatives and in the Senate that there was
collusion of people who were absolutely a taskforce against Trump
even before he was elected, who wanted to have sort of a life
insurance against the possibility that Trump may be elected.
They worked together with the “former” MI-6 agent Christopher
Steele on this dirty dossier.  Now it turns out that the degree
of corruption is even much more deep.  For example, the wife of
the recently laid-off Associate Deputy Attorney General, Bruce
Ohr, worked for the very firm which was dealing with Christopher
Steele on behalf of the Obama administration and the Clinton
election team; namely, Fusion GPS.
So, there is very clearly a conflict of interest to say the
least, and what happened in the hearing was basically, the
situation became so hot that McCabe at the last moment discovered
a so-called conflict of his agenda, and he didn’t appear.
Congressman Nunes immediately said he does not believe that for a
second, because obviously it was incredible.  The cover-up is not
functioning anymore, because the questions were asked to these
individuals that they should have brought this information on
their own; if there was an investigation against the President,
they should have prepared the material as evidence and not
covered it up.
So, I think this is turning the whole situation around.
“Russia-gate” is crumbling, and this has incredible strategic
implications, because this whole thing, if we recall how this
developed, was all intended from the very beginning by the Obama
administration and the leftovers from the previous Bush
administration to prevent President Trump from developing a
positive relationship with Russia.

OGDEN:  This is excerpt from Helga Zepp-LaRouche’s remarks
yesterday on her international Schiller Institute webcast.  As
you just heard her conclude there, this whole thing is turning on
its head.  The accusers have become the accused; and she said
that this whole “Russia-gate” hoax is crumbling.  This has
enormous strategic implications.  Obviously, as she was just in
the middle of saying, the purpose of this was to drive a wedge
between any potentially useful collaboration between the United
States and Russia; and then also by extension, the United States
and China.  But this entire thing really now has crumbled in just
the last 48 hours; and it’s moving very quickly as a result of
the probes from various Congressional committees move ahead.  The
most telling are the text messages that were published between
Peter Strzok, who was a agent on the Mueller investigation, and
his would-be mistress, Lisa Page; who were texting back and forth
during the entirety of the campaign and then even after the
election, leading up into the inauguration.  I would just like to
read some of the content of these text messages that have been
released to the public.  It will show you that this is just
symptomatic of, as Helga Zepp-LaRouche called it, a taskforce
which really was put together inside the institutions of the FBI
and the Justice Department; that were planning and plotting how
to bring down President Trump after he was inaugurated.  So,
here’s some of the contents of the text messages.  You’ll see
that not only did they have it out for Donald Trump, they had it
out for Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley, and John Kasich.  These
were Clinton partisans; and I think this really goes to the point
that there is a stay-behind apparatus inside these institutions
that really were doing everything they could from {inside} of the
institutions to get Clinton elected.  Talk about a rigged system!
And then once she lost the election, they’ve been trying to do
everything they can to bring down President Trump.  So, here are
some quotes.
Lisa Page said in a text message, “I just saw my first
Bernie Sanders bumper sticker.  Made me want to key the car.” —
this is from August of 2015.  What was Strzok’s reply?  “He’s an
idiot like Trump.  Figure they cancel each other out.”  Later,
Lisa Page said about Donald Trump, “What an utter idiot!”  She
went on to say in another text message, “God!  Trump is a
loathsome human! OMG!  He’s an idiot!”  Strzok replied, “He’s
awful.”  Strzok wrote to Lisa Page in March of 2016, “God!
Hillary should win 100 million to zero!”  He identified himself
as a conservative Democrat, apparently.  Then here are two of
maybe the most telling text messages, that really get at the
heart of what the personnel in this so-called “investigation”
have really been up to.  Lisa Page wrote to Peter Strzok, “Maybe
you’re meant to stay where you are, because you’re meant to
protect the country from that menace,” she said, referring to
Donald Trump.  And Peter Strzok replied, “I can protect our
country at many levels.”  Then later, here’s another text, and
this is perhaps the most intriguing.  Peter Strzok wrote to Lisa
Page, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration
in Andy’s office” — referring to Andrew McCabe, the Deputy
Director. He said, “There’s no way he”, referring to Trump, “gets
elected.  But I’m afraid we can’t take that risk.”  So, what were
they plotting in Andrew McCabe’s office?  And then later on,
shortly after the election, Lisa Page wrote to Peter Strzok,
“Just bought {All the President’s Men}.  Figure I needed to brush
up on Watergate.”  Of course, {All the President’s Men} is the
famous book about how Richard Nixon was brought down through the
Watergate scandals.  So, this shows that shortly after the
election, these two Federal employees were discussing how Trump
might be brought down by this sort of scandal.  So, there you
have it — “Russia-gate”.
As Helga Zepp-LaRouche said, this entire thing is falling
apart.  That’s just one small sliver of the story.  There are
entire other aspects of these conflicts of interest and the fact
that Mueller did stack his team with people who were known
partisans, and who had very clear conflicts of interest.  This
entire thing is now turning on its head.  As Helga Zepp-LaRouche
said, this has enormous strategic implications.
Indeed, we see the potential again for a relationship
between the United States and Russia moving forward just today.
As we heard news reports, yesterday President Trump initiated a
call to President Putin, where they discussed several things, as
President Trump said while he was on the south lawn of the White
House this morning, getting on the helicopter to go down to
Quantico.  He said, President Putin talked about some of the
positive things that have been accomplished here in the United
States during the past year of President Trump’s Presidency.
They also talked about some of the conflicts that the US and
Russia have abroad.  But most of all, the subject matter of that
phone call last night was discussing how to resolve the Korea
crisis; North Korea specifically.  As we know, President Trump
has worked very closely with President Xi Jinping of China to try
to address this hotspot.  But he has repeatedly said, if we could
get along with Russia, that would be a good thing, not a bad
thing; because that would enable us to resolve some of these
hotspots around the world, including North Korea.  So, hopefully
we’ll see some progress as we move forward with that.  We
obviously know that that’s a major aspect of the discussion at
the United Nations Security Council today with Secretary
Tillerson.
President Trump also said, during this interaction with
reporters this morning when he was getting on the helicopter, he
said this Russia scandal has been a fraud from day one, and
everybody knows it.  He said there is no collusion.  He said,
even my worst enemies come out of these committee hearings and
declare “Yes, that’s true.  There’s no evidence of collusion yet,
but we’ll just keep going and we’re sure to dig up something.”
But President Trump said, the point is, {there is no collusion}.
Let’s now get back to the business of running this country and
dealing with the problems that we have before us here in the
United States.
So, I think that gets directly back to the point.  We have a
45-day countdown now between now and President Trump’s State of
the Union.  Our mission, as LaRouche PAC and the LaRouche
movement, is to ensure that the central core theme of that State
of the Union is “How are we going to revive the economy of the
United States, and how are we going to join this New Paradigm of
‘win-win’ development that’s been initiated by China?”  That is
by no means a long shot, especially if you — as we did on Monday
— take a survey back on some of the positions that this
President has taken on some of the core themes of that Four Laws
economic program.  Glass-Steagall — he espoused it during the
campaign.  It’s been twisted and undermined by Steve Mnuchin and
others, but this is still a stated part of President Trump’s
agenda.  $1 trillion for infrastructure; we know that that was
the core theme of his joint address to the Congress last
February, and he’s come back to it several times.  In what form
it’s not clear; but that immediately must be mobilized.  The way
that it can be mobilized is through a Hamiltonian national bank
or a national infrastructure bank similar to the way that
Franklin Roosevelt did it during the New Deal.  He also talked
about restoring the skills and the employment of the forgotten
man; especially in the formerly industrial Midwest and heartland
of the United States.  Absolutely!  This is an entire layer of
the population that needs immediate relief, but also needs
immediate productive jobs on the cutting edge kinds of
technologies that can be mobilized through a crash program for
space and for ultimately the achievement of fusion power.
We took a large step forward, so to speak, a giant leap in
the direction of bringing mankind back to the Moon this last
Monday afternoon, with President Trump’s signing of the Space
Policy Directive #1.  The speech that he made upon that signing,
was a very inspiring speech.  He said we intend to bring
Americans back to the Moon, not just to put our footsteps on the
surface of the Moon and plant a flag; but to set up more
permanent research and settlement capabilities there, and then
ultimately to use that a launching pad to send men to Mars and
ultimately beyond.  So obviously, that was the 45th anniversary
of the Apollo 17 landing on the lunar surface; which was the last
manned Moon landing that we’ve had in 45 years.
We had the opportunity last night to hear from Kesha Rogers
on the Fireside Chat.  And many of you maybe got to participate
in this, but Kesha Rogers is a declared candidate — and I can
put her image up here [Fig. 3].  An independent candidate for
Congress, for the US House of Representatives in the 9th
Congressional District of Texas for the upcoming 2018
Congressional elections.  And as Kesha Rogers pointed out in her
talk last night, in her entire lifetime — she’s 41 years old —
we have not had a man or a woman land on the surface of the Moon.
Our entire lifetimes, and now we’re talking about the entire
lifetimes of another generation who are now reaching adulthood;
those students in college and those who are graduating high
school, their entire lifetimes have passed up to this point
without human beings returning to the surface of the Moon.  This
is a tragedy and this is an utter travesty when we look at the
legacy of what John F Kennedy and those original Apollo
astronauts intended when they were laying the groundwork for what
was going to be permanent settlements on the Moon and manned
missions beyond.  That was derailed with John F Kennedy’s
assassination, and we as a nation have fallen far behind where we
were even then with the failure to follow through on those
amazing breakthroughs.
So, this is one of things that has obviously inspired Kesha
Rogers in her declaration for candidacy in the Texas 9th District
US House of Representatives campaign.  But she also, in this
talk, called on others to join her; to take this kind of
leadership that her campaign will be the flagship for the
leadership required.  But that others must join with her to take
the leadership to make this vision a reality.  She in no
uncertain terms, made it very clear that in order to make this
vision into an actuality, we needed to make a breakthrough in the
next 45 days on securing Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Economic Laws as
the core law of the land when we’re talking about the agenda for
this Presidency.
So, what I’d like to do for you is actually just play a few
short excerpts from Kesha Rogers’ opening remarks during that
Fireside Chat call last night, just so you can hear this kind of
authoritative voice of leadership in her own voice.

KESHA ROGERS:  I will just start by making
clear for many people who have already heard and those who may be
new on the line who haven’t heard or may not be familiar with my
campaign.  I have just recently, as Dennis stated, filed a
statement of intent here in Texas to run as an independent for
the US House of Representatives in Congressional District 9 in
Texas.  That is the seat that current Congress member Al Green
holds.  Now I’m going to be petitioning for a position on the
November 2018 ballot as an independent following the March
primary elections here in Texas.
I wanted to start just with that, from the standpoint of
first of all, to give you a little bit of background about my
qualifications, my work with Mr. LaRouche over the past now
nearly 15 years.  I have run Congressional campaigns going back
to 2010, when I ran my first campaign and secured the Democratic
Party nomination and also again in 2012 securing the Democratic
Party nomination.  Leading the charge and calling out front to
end and destructive policies against our nation by
President Obama.  Calling for Obama’s impeachment during those
periods; particularly for his continued criminal actions against
our country, including his commitment to war policy,
regime-change, his Tuesday kill list, and most emphatically —
which we’ll get into more — the destruction of our national
space program with the brutal cuts to the Constellation program
and the destruction of our Moon return program that was set into
motion by the Constellation.
But what we saw during the Obama administration was an
outright commitment to defending the interests of Wall Street.
This is what my campaign and many of my colleagues on the
national slate that I ran with as LaRouche candidates on a
national slate, acted immediately to reject this policy of Wall
Street looting of our national economy and to call for the
shutting down of Wall Street and a restoring of Glass-Steagall
banking reorganization.  So, it’s important to understand that
history right now, because this is what actually garnered a great
success with my campaigns here in Texas, despite the fact that
there was a real backlash from the national and local Democrat
Party.  As I said, the victory came about when people in not only
in the district, in the state, supported my campaign calling for
a return to a national mission.  A visionary perspective as
outlined by President John F Kennedy and also President Franklin
Roosevelt, which has been the commitment of Lyndon LaRouche and
his economic policies for many decades now.  Many people
responded to that call of leadership and recognized that our
campaign actually offered solutions.
This is what is absolutely required today.  What I’m hoping
to see is that more people take it upon yourselves to actually
launch into this fight, to run political campaigns yourself.
What we need right now is we need a form of leadership emerging
throughout the country of people all over the nation.  This is
not a matter of party politics; this is a matter of who will
commit to a restoring of a national mission for the country.  I
think it’s very important right now to recognize that we’re not
talking about what’s going to be needed for almost a year from
now in a November election.  But what is required immediately,
and what must be implemented at this present time to save our
nation, to save the US economy, to turn around the decades-long
physical economic collapse that we’ve seen in the country.  We’re
at a very unique opportunity to be able to do that.  It’s going
to require the educational process of the American people; it’s
going to require a number of you and others stepping up to the
plate to provide the leadership that’s needed.  I think it really
is going to require a new commitment and understanding of what
the idea of a national mission really should constitute.  Mr.
LaRouche the model, the mobilization of my
campaigns has been the direct influence of the work that Lyndon
LaRouche has been involved in for many years now.  The national
mission orientation and a science driver crash program for
restoring the productivity of our nation.
So, I think that is the fight at hand right now.  As we look
at the rapid shift toward development in the world at the present
time, you see what’s happening in terms of a commitment by
nations that are joining with China in the Belt and Road
Initiative.  The direction for a national mission for our country
isn’t just for the benefit of the United States itself, but the
world is looking right now towards a unified global paradigm.
Which is a paradigm shaped around the idea that an international
commitment to collaboration, to ending poverty, to ending the
threat of war, to ending hunger, to ending in the United States
and elsewhere the rapid increase of drug abuse, and the collapse
of physical infrastructure.  This has to be our commitment; not
just to our own nation, but to that in collaborations around the
world.  The best way to define, to actually secure the victory of
accomplishing those goals, is through a commitment to a national
driver which is our commitment to reviving our national space
program.
So, that’s what has been my number one priority, is
continuing to campaign even in off-campaign seasons and continue
to be very present in the space community and the scientific
community.  This is what we have a very important obligation to
see through.  So, I think we are in a very unique position to
respond to this demand of leadership.  I take on that challenge
willingly, and I am looking for people to join me and take on
that challenge as I do, and to make sure that we can move the
country in the needed direction in the next 50 days now.  Get the
President to immediately adopt these policies of an economic
recovery program that’s been defined by Lyndon LaRouche in his
Four Economic Laws.

OGDEN:  So there you heard.  These were the opening remarks
from Kesha Rogers during the Fireside Chat last night.  You can
listen to the entire dialogue on the LaRouche PAC website if you
missed it, but her remarks there right at the conclusion; she
said we have this 50-day countdown — now 45 days — to secure
Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Economic Laws as the policy of the
Presidency of the United States.  So, you can see here on the
screen [Fig. 4], this is again the sneak peek to the cover of the
LaRouche PAC pamphlet which will be coming out at the beginning
of next week.  “America’s Future on the New Silk Road.
LaRouche’s Four Laws — The Physical Economic Principles for the
Recovery of the United States.”  And it says on the back there,
these are LaRouche’s Four Laws; and then we have a beautiful map
of the World Land-Bridge as it was conceived originally by the
LaRouche movement over 20 years ago.  Now, this is actually
coming into fruition.  The core contents of this pamphlet are the
text of the keynote speech that Helga Zepp-LaRouche made at the
Bad Soden conference in Frankfurt, Germany about two weeks ago.
Where she goes through the entire vision of what was originally
conceived of by Gottfried Leibniz as the Eurasian collaboration
between European civilization and Chinese Confucian civilization,
reaching across, bridging between those two great civilizations
to bring development to the entirety of the Eurasian continent.
That was Leibniz’s idea originally for what is now this New Silk
Road that the Chinese have initiated.  Now our mission is to
extend that to include the entire world.
Also, we have Lyndon LaRouche’s original document — “The
Four Economic Laws” — reprinted in full in that pamphlet.  Then
we have four sections that break down those four economic laws
and elaborate them a little bit more extensively.  This is
exactly what Kesha Rogers said; we need to have an educational
process for the American people over the coming 45 days in order
to really bring this idea of a recovery program to life.
So, I thought it was very useful to listen to the remarks
from Kesha Rogers, and to hear that in her own voice.  As she
said, we’re in a very unique to respond to the demand of
leadership that’s needed today.  She said, I think that if we
take this kind of national sense of mission, we can really
inspire people across party lines.  This is not a question of
party politics, she said.  She called for a swarm of leadership
from across the nation; she said, “We need a swarm of leadership
of people who will commit to restoring this sense of national
mission for our country”; bring us into this New Paradigm of
development which is now sweeping the globe.  She said what’s
required is for you and for others to step up to the plate and to
provide the kind of leadership required.  She said, “I take on
that challenge willingly, and I’m looking for others who will do
the same.”
So I think on that note, we have our sense of mission for
the next 45 days.  Things will continue to develop very rapidly,
I’m sure; around both the crumbling of this entire so-called
“Russia-gate” investigation, as things become more and more
revealed and brought out into the light of day.  And also as we
continue to make breakthroughs on this campaign to make Lyndon
LaRouche’s Four Economic Laws the law of the land here in the
United States.
So, continue to tune in, please, over the coming days as we
continue our now 45-day countdown.  We will guarantee that we
will continue our mobilization and do everything required to make
sure that we secure a victory in this campaign to restore the
Hamiltonian principles as the law of the land in the United
States.  So, you can follow more about what Kesha Rogers is doing
as we cover her campaign here on larouchepac.com.  And you can
look forward to next week, the publication of this new pamphlet,
“America’s Future on the New Silk Road.  LaRouche’s Four Laws —
The Physical Economic Principles for the Recovery of the United
States.”  And also, we have the 10,000-print run of the Mueller
special dossier that has already penetrated the highest levels of
policymaking here in Washington, DC and across the country, and
will continue to have — I’m sure — a very groundbreaking
effect.
So, thank you for tuning today.  Please stay tuned to
larouchepac.com and good night.




Trump annoncerer USA’s tilbagevenden til Månen:
Vi har brug for LaRouches Fire Love for at gøre det.
Helga Zepp-LaRouche i Schiller Institut
Nyt Paradigme Webcast, 14. dec., 2017

Jeg mener, der også er en aftale mellem USA og Rusland om sammen at bygge en rumstation på Månen. Og Trumps beslutning – jeg mener, man kan virkelig se, hvem, der er hvem, når man ser, hvordan folk reagerer til dette. ESA, det Europæiske Rumagentur, var fuldstændig entusiastisk og hilste dette velkomment; den kinesiske regering udtrykte glæde over denne beslutning. Alt imens de europæiske medier dækkede dette, som om Trump var fuldstændig sindssyg for at ville tage tilbage til Månen – dette er virkelig utroligt! Alle mennesker, der har været i rummet, astronauterne, de kommer altid tilbage og siger, dette er en utrolig oplevelse, for i rummet betyder det ingen ting, hvilken nationalitet, man har, for man må stole på hinanden, ellers kan man ikke gennemføre en så ekstremt udfordrende mission. En russisk kosmonaut har netop sagt: Vi bør udvikle en holdning til at løse problemer på Jorden i samme ånd, med hvilken vi samarbejder i rummet.

Russiagate kupforsøg imod Trump i
problemer – kommer kupmagerne i fængsel
og USA med i Kinas Ny Silkevej?
Politisk Orientering og diskussion med
Schiller Instituttets formand Tom Gillesberg
den 14. december 2017.

Tom Gillesberg: »God aften, og velkommen her, ti dage inden juleaften. Jeg tror godt, jeg kan fortælle, at det er ikke alle, der får rare julegaver under juletræet. Én af dem, som nok ville have været vores julegave foruden, det er Robert Mueller; denne særlige anklager i USA. Og beskeden om, at vi lige har genoptrykt i USA 10.000 yderligere kopier af en meget speciel rapport, der hedder, ’Robert Mueller er en umoralsk, juridisk morder: Han vil gøre sit job, hvis du lader ham’, er de nok ikke så glade for, fordi det, vi over den sidste over en måned har lykkedes med at gøre med det dossier, som afslører denne Robert Mueller for, hvad han egentlig er, nemlig som sagt en juridisk lejemorder; en person, som på vegne af oligarkiet, på vegne af de globale, private, finansielle interesser, fjerner ubelejlige sten på vejen, som f.eks. lige nu, Donald Trump, der uheldigvis blev valgt til USA’s præsident. Men også tidligere, folk som Lyndon LaRouche, der jo i USA og internationalt repræsenterede et alternativ til det globale, umoralske system, man satte op. Jamen, dengang nu for årtier siden, tilbage i 1980’erne, fik Robert Mueller dengang opgaven at fjerne Lyndon LaRouche og hans organisation. Og tilsyneladende var han fremgangsrig, for det lykkedes ham faktisk, på falske anklager, at få kørt en retssag igennem, som satte LaRouche og seks af hans folk bag lås og slå i de næste fem år; og det lykkedes ham også at sætte andre folk i LaRouche-organisationen endnu længere i fængsel, folk, som Rochelle Ascher og Michael Billington fik over 60 års fængsel, som de dog heldigvis ikke fuldt ud kom til at afsone. Så han lykkedes med det, han blev sat til dengang; fjern LaRouche, og derfor blev han promoveret, derfor kørte han op gennem graderne, derfor blev han tilsat som FBI-chef, hvor han så sad, da 11. september 2001 fandt sted, og hvor han så sad i en position til at dække op, hvad der egentlig var foregået, og sørge for, at ingen af de ansvarlige kræfter bag terrorangrebet 11. september 2001, med over 3.000 døde amerikanere, trods alt; at ingen af de ansvarlige blev stillet til ansvar, alle fik lov til at gå fri, bortset fra dem, der meget belejligt døde i forbindelse med terrorangrebet … «

En plan for at besejre et kup og gå med i et
nyt paradigme for økonomisk fremskridt

Leder fra LaRouche PAC, USA, 13. dec., 2017 – LaRouche Political Action Committee (LPAC) udgiver to dokumenter til massecirkulation for at besejre kuppet mod præsident Trump, og for at realisere – og gå hinsides – de økonomiske politikker, amerikanere troede, han stod for under sidste års valgkampagne.

I dag begyndte uddelingen af det andet masseoplag af dossieret, »Robert Mueller er en umoralsk, juridisk morder: Han vil gøre sit job, hvis I giver ham lov«; det vil blive uddelt i Washington, D.C., og i hele landet, frem til fredag, 15. dec. Det er lykkedes det første masseoplag af dette dossier at rette spotlyset, og heden, mod den politiske dagsorden for et kupforsøg mod Donald Trump, der indledtes med britisk efterretning, og som bruger Mueller som sit våben. Det afsløres nu, dag efter dag, i kongreshøringer og endda i nogle af de medier, som for blot få uger siden handlede som en del af dette kup.

De 10.000 nye dossierer, der er uddelt på tryk, og dossierets virkning på Internettet, må gøre det af med dette kup, inklusive Muellers såkaldte »efterforskning«.

Præsidentens politikker er kendt; han fastslår dem klart og gentagent. De omfatter en hensigt om at samarbejde med Rusland og Kina for at opløse arven efter Bush/Obama om »krige for regimeskifte« og undgå truslen om en konfrontation mellem atommagter.

Men kupmagernes politikker og ekstreme partiskhed mod Trump – med start i britisk MI6-efterretningstjeneste fra 2015 og frem – er blevet dulgt, mens de »ganske enkelt efterforskede russisk indblanding«. Dette hemmelighedskræmmeri er nu blevet sprængt vidt åbent; deres partiskhed er til offentligt skue og må snart komme under formel efterforskning.

Og deres politik – som, igen, starter med britisk efterretning – er en totalt optrappet konfrontation med Rusland og Kina, der endda vil gå så langt som til en atomar konfrontation.

»Efterforskerne« er i virkeligheden et netværk af angloamerikanske spioner – Christopher Steele, Glenn Simpson, FBI’s Andrew McCabe, justitsministeriets folk Bruce og Nellie Ohr, Mueller selv og hans »chefefterforsker« Peter Strzok, et al. – der havde anstiftet Obamas hardline anti-russiske politik i årevis, før kandidat og siden præsident Donald Trump blev mål for dem.

Alt imens præsidenten må befries for dette kupforsøg, så vil LaRouche PAC’s anden publikation, »Amerikas fremtid på den Nye Silkevej« genoplive potentialet for et »nyt økonomisk paradigme«, som engagerede ham i hans 14 dage lange rejse til Kina og andre asiatiske nationer. Resultatet heraf var næsten $300 mia. i investeringer i USA og et forpligtende engagement fra kinesernes side til at opbygge industri i Amerikas tredjefattigste stat.

Præsidenten og Kongressen må ubetinget begynde med genindførelsen af Glass/Steagall-loven, før de hyper-gearede amerikanske og europæiske banker atter krakker. Dette var et løfte under Trumps valgkampagne. Gå dernæst med i Kinas Bælte & Vej Initiativ (»Nye Silkevej«) og følg op på kredit fra Kina til store infrastrukturprojekter med kredit fra en Reconstruction Finance Corporation (kreditanstalt for genopbygning) eller en statslig, amerikansk bank efter Hamiltons principper. Infrastrukturbyggeri var Trumps hovedkampagneløfte, men det Republikanske lederskabs gniere har hidtil nedkæmpet hans plan.

Byg højhastigheds-jernbanekorridorer; byg havsluser og reservoirer; byg kernekraftværker og vær ikke afhængig af energi fra gas, som de nu fortrydende briter. Tag til Månen igen, og derfra dybere ind i Solsystemet med en mobilisering som Apolloprogrammet. Trump har atter erklæret, at USA vil gøre dette. Men uden de politikker for kredit og videnskab, som LaRouche forklarer i sine »Fire Love«, og uden samarbejde med Kina, Rusland og andre rumfartsnationer, vil det ikke lykkes.

Brochuren »Amerikas fremtid på den Nye Silkevej« er udgivet for at få disse love gennemført.

Det tegner til en livlig jule- og nytårsferie. Den bliver forhåbentlig god for fred og for menneskehedens fælles fremtid.

USA’s udenrigsminister Tillerson gør det klart,
at vi har brug for russisk samarbejde om Korea

13. dec., 2017 – På en pressekonference afholdt på Atlantic Council-Korea Foundation Forum, sagde USA’s udenrigsminister Rex Tillerson, at præsident Trump mener, det er ekstremt vigtigt at etablere en relation mellem USA og Rusland. Tillerson sagde også, at samarbejde med Rusland om Korea var vigtigt. »Jeg mener, præsidenten har gjort det fuldstændig klart, at han mener, det er ekstremt vigtigt, at USA og Rusland har en arbejdsrelation«, sagde Tillerson. »Det har vi ikke i dag.«

På trods af dette faktum påpegede Tillerson, at USA regner med Rusland for at være med til at løse krisen i Syrien og gøre Nordkorea atomvåbenfrit. »I det store og hele har de [Rusland] i FN’s Sikkerhedsråd igen støttet sanktionerne«, sagde Tillerson i går. »De har udtalt sig om, hvor effektive, de mener, disse vil være, men vi har brug for Ruslands støtte.«

Tillersons udtalelse på det samme forum om, at USA er rede til at forhandle med nordkoreanske repræsentanter uden forudsætninger, blev onsdag modificeret, men ikke ændret, af udtalelser fra Det Hvide Hus og Justitsministeriet om, at USA forventer en periode uden atom- eller missiltest i Nordkorea, før og under sådanne forhandlinger.

Talsmand for den russiske præsident, Dmitry Peskov, sagde om denne udtalelse, »Generelt set kan vi sige, at sådanne konstruktive erklæringer er bedre end den konfrontationsretorik, vi hidtil har hørt. Vi kan kun hilse dette velkomment, og det er i overensstemmelse med vore forslag«. Peskov forsatte, at »det er Putin, der uophørligt har opfordret alle de interesserede parter til at gøre enhver bestræbelse for at opbygge dialog. Så disse udtalelser [fra Tillerson] er afgjort velkomne«.

I mellemtiden sagde FN’s undergeneralsekretær for politiske anliggender, Jeffrey Feltman, efter sit besøg til Nordkorea, at USA forventer, Pyongyang vil signalere sin beredvillighed til at forberede forhandlinger om afgørelse af atomvåbenkrisen, selv om det nordkoreanske lederskab ikke kom med nogen forpligtelse i dette spørgsmål, iflg. Sputnik. »Vi understregede over for regeringsfolkene fra Den Demokratiske Folkerepublik Korea, at vi virkelig mener, de må signalere, at de er villige til nu at gå i en anden retning, til at indlede en eller anden form for engagement, til at begynde at tale om forhandlinger. De lyttede seriøst til vore argumenter og diskuterede dem med os. Men de kom ikke med nogen form for forpligtelse over for os på dette tidspunkt. De må tænke over, hvad vi sagde, sammen med deres lederskab«, sagde Feltman til reportere. »Nordkoreanske samtalepartnere var enige i, at det var vigtigt at forhindre krig. Hvordan vi gør det, var emnet for de 15+ timers diskussioner.«

Russisk militærdelegation i Pyongyang koordineret med Beijing

13. dec., 2017 – RT og TASS rapporterer i dag, at en russisk militærdelegation er i Pyongyang, det andet besøg fra officielle russiske repræsentanter til Nordkorea på to uger. Under anførelse af Viktor Kalganov, vicedirektør for det Russiske Nationale Forsvarskommandocenter, ankom delegationen i går og vil være der resten af ugen.

Der er intet officielt kommet ud fra selve Forsvarsministeriet, men RT rapporterer, at Udenrigsministeriet understregede, at Moskva »benytter enhver anledning til direkte kommunikation« og vil fortsætte med det, inkl. med hjælp fra Forsvarsministeriet. »Nordkorea er vores nabo; vi må udvikle relationer med dette land«, sagde viceudenrigsminister Sergei Ryabkov i en briefing i dag. »En politisk dialog er ekstremt vigtig.«

Vicechef for Forsvarsministeriets Offentlige Råd, Aleksandr Kanshin, sagde til Interfax, at »formålet med de militære, politiske og diplomatiske bestræbelser er klart: Alle sider bør vende tilbage til forhandlingsbordet for at lægge provokerende og truende militærretorik og styrkeopvisninger til side«. Han sagde, at den aktuelle mission er en del af køreplanen, der er blevet foreslået i fællesskab af Moskva og Beijing for at lette spændinger gennem dialog.

Hvad Europa bør yde af bidrag til det globale paradigme.
Af Jacques Cheminade; tale på Schiller
Instituttets konference i Frankfurt, Tyskland

Det bør stå helt klart, at den nuværende Europæiske Union er baseret på et forræderi af de bedste historiske og kulturelle kilder i Europa – og jeg mener kilder, ikke rødder, der klamrer sig til jorden. Men det bør ligeledes stå helt klart, at de europæiske nationer og deres ledere, og ligeledes deres såkaldte populistiske opponenter, også har skænket deres sjæl bort. Hvor ligger håbet så? Hvad kunne vore europæiske bidrag være? Det ligger selvfølgelig i en fornemmelse af at forstå, hvad en nationalstat er, noget, der er latent, om end skjult, i alle sande europæeres hjerte. Det er vores opgave at inspirere til, at den sovende fornuft vågner.

En nationalstat er meget mere end et territorium eller en befolknings givne tilstand, eller endda en religion eller en tradition. Det er en idés dynamik, som udvikler sig og vokser i magt og omfang i historiens løb.

Trump annoncerer, USA vil vende tilbage til Månen;
Han får brug for LaRouches Fire Love for at opnå det.
Helga Zepp-LaRouche i Schiller Institut
Nyt Paradigme Webcast, 14. dec., 2017 kl. 18.

http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com

12. dec., 2017 – Den 11. dec. underskrev præsident Donald Trump et nyt direktiv for rumfart, som åbner døren for en udvidet vision for USA’s bemandede rumfart. I sin meddelelse sagde han, »Denne gang vil vi ikke blot plante vores flag og afsætte vore fodspor. Vi vil etablere et grundlag for en eventuel mission til Mars, og måske en dag mange verdener hinsides Mars.« Samtidig med, at præsidenten kom med denne meddelelse, fandt et møde sted i den Kinesisk-Amerikanske Civile Rumfartsdialog, der bragte kinesiske og amerikanske regeringsfolk sammen i Beijing for at drøfte en genåbning af samarbejde om rumfart. Frygten blandt imperiefortalerne for en unipolær verden er, at denne form for initiativ fra Trump-administrationens side ville bevæge USA ud af de dødbringende, endeløse konflikter, som de, igennem Bush- og Obamaadministrationerne, og som står bag den nu fejlende Mueller-efterforskning med det formål at fjerne Trump for enhver pris, har gennemtvunget.

For at realisere et sådant løfterigt samarbejde – som er på linje med det nye paradigme for internationale relationer, som nu vokser frem omkring Bælte & Vej Initiativet, lanceret af Kinas præsident Xi Jinping – er det afgørende, at Amerika mobiliseres til at lukke det britiskorkestrerede kup imod præsident Trump ned. Samtidig er det nødvendigt, at Lyndon LaRouches Fire Love bliver grundlaget for Trump-administrationens økonomiske politik. Disse Fire Love leverer på enestående vis fundamentet for en genoplivelse af det Amerikanske [Økonomiske] System, som er forudsætningen for de videnskabelige og teknologiske fremskridt, der er nødvendige for at genoplive en amerikansk rolle i rumforskning. Ved at bringe den Nye Silkevejsånd til et bredere publikum, der består af aktive borgere i hele verden, er sådanne mål nu inden for vores rækkevidde.

I sin ugentlige, strategiske webcast vil dette være blandt de spørgsmål, Helga Zepp-LaRouche kommer ind på.




EU øger sit militærforsvar: Mod hvem?

12. dec., 2017 – Forsvarsministre fra EU-medlemsstaters regeringer gav i går grønt lys i Bruxelles for en fælles »forsvarsunion«, der er udformet til at forstærke koordinering inden for indkøb, effektiv planlægning, forskning og udvikling og udveksling af militære efterretninger. Danmark tilslutter sig ikke aftalen, og det gør Malta, der ikke ønsker at forpligte sig til øgede forsvarsudgifter, som det forudses af EU, heller ikke. U.K. er under alle omstændigheder ikke en del af det, eftersom det forlader EU. Af de i alt 28 EU-medlemsstater er således kun 25 en del af forsvarsunionen.

Der nævnes ingen konkret fjende, men der er næppe tvivl om, at Rusland er det land, EU-25 hævder, de forsvarer sig imod. På EU-topmødet, der finder sted om et par dage, vil sanktioner mod Rusland over spørgsmålene om det østlige Ukraine og Krim sandsynligvis blive forlænget og bekræftet. Den anden fjende er flygtninge, der forsøger at komme til Europa over Middelhavet – hvor EU ønsker at øge sin flådeafpatruljering for at skærme kontinentet mod »uønskede« immigranter fra Afrika, Sydvest- og Sydasien. Flygtningespørgsmålet er ligeledes på dagsordenen på et særskilt møde mellem EU/FN og den Afrikanske Union i Bruxelles den 14. dec., og som er sammenkaldt for at drøfte, hvordan afrikanske lande kan tage deres flygtninge tilbage med assistance fra EU/FN.




Nye deklassificerede dokumenter giver yderligere bevis for vestlige
løfter til Rusland om ikke at flytte NATO mod øst

12. dec., 2017 – En række deklassificerede dokumenter blev tirsdag udlagt af George Washington Universitetets Nationale Sikkerhedsarkiv. Ifølge meddelelsen, der opsummerer dokumenterne, »var den amerikanske udenrigsminister James Bakers berømte garanti, ’ikke en centimeter mod øst’ om NATO’s ekspansion, under sit møde med Sovjetunionens leder Mikhail Gorbatjov 9. februar 1990, en del af en kaskade af garantier om sovjetisk sikkerhed, som blev givet af vestlige ledere til Gorbatjov og andre sovjetiske regeringsfolk under hele processen for tysk genforening i 1990 og ind i 1991«.

Sputnik rapporterer, at det omfatter et telegram fra den Amerikanske Ambassade i Bonn, som informerer Washington om, at den tyske udenrigsminister Hans-Dietrich Genscher indtrængende havde tilskyndet NATO til at udelukke en »ekspansion af sit territorium mod øst, dvs., flytte det tættere til de sovjetiske grænser«, og at Genscher ligeledes foreslog at udelukke Østtyskland fra NATO’s sikkerhedsparaply efter en tysk genforening.

Hold jer sejren for øje!

Leder fra LaRouche PAC, USA, 11. dec., 2017 – Dette er et enestående øjeblik. Det gamle, geopolitiske paradigme smuldrer, selv om det stadig sparker og er farligt, som det er tilfældet i det aktuelle kaos omkring Jerusalem. Men det nye paradigmes gensidige fordelagtighed vinder hastigt grund; og den potentielle alliance mellem Kina, Rusland og USA betyder et muligt, episk fremskridt for menneskeheden. Vi bør holde os sejren for øje.

I USA hører vi nu hyleri fra imperieslænget i Washington og London om, at deres Mueller/Russiagate-komplot ikke har held til at bringe Trump og det amerikanske præsidentskab til fald. Washington Post og Londonavisen Guardian stønner, at Robert Mueller og hans team ikke længere er »respekteret« og ikke ses som værende en »legitim myndighed«.

Det, der sker med Robert Mueller, viser »Ibykus-princippet« i kraft, med henvisning til Friedrich Schillers berømte digt, Ibykus’ traner. I dag påpegede Schiller Instituttets præsident, Helga Zepp-LaRouche, denne kendsgerning. Mueller slap længe godt fra sine forbrydelser – fængslingen af Lyndon LaRouche og hans medarbejdere, medskyldighed og mørklægning af Saudi-Arabiens involvering i 11. september. Men nu kredser Ibykus’ traner om ham. Mueller står for fald.

I Sydvestasien er der positive udviklinger, der giver håb for fremtiden, på trods af de af USA- og U.K.-støttede, saudiske grusomheder med angreb på Yemen. I dag var den russiske præsident Vladimir Putin på en russisk flybase i Syrien, hvor han takkede russiske soldater for deres indsats i Syrien og annoncerede, at kontingenter og udstyr nu er beordret hjem. »Vi vil aldrig glemme de dødsfald og tab, vi har lidt i anti-terrorkampen, både her i Syrien og i Rusland … mindet herom vil give os yderligere styrke til at udrydde denne absolutte ondskab – international terrorisme …« Den syriske præsident Bashar al-Assad takkede personligt Putin for at hjælpe Syrien. Dernæst mødtes Putin i Kairo med den egyptiske præsident Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, hvor økonomiske aftaler blev underskrevet, inklusive aftaler om, at Rusland kunne gå videre med byggeri af kernekraftværket med fire reaktorer på kysten, og om at samarbejde om Suezkanalens industrizone.

Samtidig er regionen i oprør over meddelelsen fra 6. dec. om, at USA vil flytte sin ambassade i Tel Aviv til Jerusalem. Trumps erklæring om dette – som senere blev modereret af udenrigsminister Rex Tillerson, kommer midt i en månedlang hyperaktivitet på vegne af fjernsynsprædikanter, såkaldte kristne, fundamentalistiske netværk, der kræver, at vi »står side om side med Israel«. Disse netværk er gamle kapaciteter for beskidte, britiske operationer, som går årtier tilbage i tiden. Vicepræsident Mike Pence, der er dybt involveret i disse kredse, og USA’s FN-ambassadør Nikke Haley, gik ind for, at Trump skulle tage dette provokerende initiativ før Pences planlagte rejse til Israel (17.-18. dec.) og Egypten (19.-20. dec.). Denne rejse – der tidligere var programmeret som en måde til at fremme Trumps ønske om en fredsproces, ligger nu i ruiner, endnu før den er begyndt. Den palæstinensiske præsident Mahmoud Abbas har aflyst et planlagt møde med Pence, og det samme har den egyptiske, koptiske patriark, pave Tawadros II og Egyptens øverste, muslimske klerikale repræsentant, Ahmed Al-Tayeb.

Denne form for handlinger for at skabe konflikt – hvor man sætter Israel op imod Palæstina, jøder op imod muslimer, sunnier op imod shi’iter samt andre geopolitiske spil, er det gamle paradigme i arbejde. Der er ingen mulighed for sikkerhed for nogen – inklusive Israel – i dette system af orkestrerede stridigheder. Den eneste løsning er gennem en ny æra for win-win-relationer mellem nationer, i den »Nye Silkevejsånd«. Dette forklares på smukkeste vis i Schiller Instituttets nye rapport, »Udvid den Nye Silkevej til Sydvestasien og Afrika: En vision om en økonomisk renæssance (vil snart kunne bestilles i USA).

LaRouche-medarbejdere i USA går nu frem mod målet om at opnå et skifte i politikken frem til 30. januar, 2018, Trumps Tale om nationens tilstand. Som det blev sagt i dag i LaRouche PAC’s mandags-opdatering: »50 dage til at forme de næste 50 år«.

Præsident Trumps underskrivelse af »Direktiv 1 for Rumpolitik« under en ceremoni i Det Hvide Hus er et skridt hen imod netop denne fornødne ændring. Vi vil »løfte vort blik mod himlene« og »turde drømme store ting«, erklærede præsidenten.

Putin og Egyptens el-Sisi kræver en genoptagelse af
Palæstina-Israel-dialogen om alle spørgsmål inkl. Jerusalem

11. dec., 2017 – Den russiske præsident Vladimir Putin mødtes også med den egyptiske præsident Abdel Fattah el-Sisi i Kairo i dag, for at diskutere både udvikling af de russisk-egyptiske relationer inden for politik, handel og økonomi, energi og humanitære behov, så vel som også det palæstinensiske spørgsmål i sammenhæng med USA’s anerkendelse af Jerusalem som Israels hovedstad.

Putin sagde: »Vi anser for at være kontraproduktive, alle skridt, der foregriber resultatet af dialogen mellem palæstinenserne og israelerne«, sagde han efter samtaler med el-Sisi. »Vi mener, at sådanne skridt er destabiliserende. De skaber på ingen måde en afgørelse af situationen, men fremprovokerer tværtimod konflikten.«

De to ledere aftalte ligeledes at koordinere politik vedrørende en langsigtet afgørelse af den syriske situation; diskuterede situationen i Libyen og krævede, at man sikrede stabilitet og sikkerhed i dette land ved at genoprette landets suverænitet, enhed og territoriale integritet.

Erdogan og Putin drøfter Syrien og regional
destabilisering ud fra USA’s beslutning om Jerusalem

11. dec., 2017 – Den russiske præsident Vladimir Putin mødtes med den tyrkiske præsident Recep Tayyip Erdogan i Ankara i dag, til deres ottende møde i år.

»Fokus lå selvfølgelig på situationen omkring afgørelsen i Mellemøsten, som er dramatisk forværret, samt på syriske spørgsmål, hvor vore lande arbejder tæt sammen«, sagde Putin til journalister efter drøftelserne, rapporter TASS. »Vi arbejder sammen for at forberede og sammenkalde til Kongressen for National Syrisk Dialog i begyndelsen af næste år«, sagde han. »Det er ingen hemmelighed, at jeg talte om dette med præsident Assad under mit besøg i Syrien i dag.«

Putin rapporterede ligeledes, at både han og Erdogan var enige om, at den amerikanske præsident Donald Trumps beslutning om at anerkende Jerusalem som Israels hovedstad har en destabiliserende virkning på regionen. Både Rusland og Tyrkiet mener, at denne beslutning »på ingen måde fremmer afgørelsen af situationen i Mellemøsten. Tværtimod, så destabiliserer den situationen i regionen, som allerede er spændt«, sagde han. Erdogan på sin side sagde, at de havde »aftalt fortsat at holde kontakt i denne henseende«.

Erdogan rapporterede ligeledes, at Tyrkiets køb af det russiske S-400 luftforsvarssystem skal afsluttes »i denne uge«, at handelssamarbejde mellem de to lande bliver stærkere »dag for dag«, og at »vi har et harmonisk arbejdsmiljø på det politiske plan«, rapporterede det officielle Anadolu Nyhedsagentur. Erdogan annoncerede ligeledes, at han, Putin og den iranske præsident Hassan Rouhani snart ville afholde et trilateralt topmøde om Syrien, for at følge op på det topmøde, der blev afholdt i Sotji, Rusland, i sidste uge. De tre lande er garanter for »Astana-processen«, for fred i Syrien.

Putin annoncerer russisk militær tilbagetrækning fra Syrien

11. dec. 2017 – På første stop på en hvirvelvind af en rejse til Mellemøsten, der også vil bringe ham til Egypten og Tyrkiet, annoncerede den russiske præsident Putin, at han har udstedt ordrer til det Russiske Forsvarsministerium om at indlede en delvis tilbagetrækning af russiske militærstyrker i Syrien. Meddelelsen kom fra Hmeymim-flybasen, hvor russiske styrker har hovedkvarter, og hvor han mødtes med den syriske præsident Bashar al-Assad.

»Jeg beordrer Forsvarsministeriet og generalstabschefen til at påbegynde tilbagetrækningen af den russiske militærgruppe til permanente lokaliteter«, sagde Putin til en tilhørerskare af militært personel. »Hen over lidt mere end to år har de russiske militærstyrker, sammen med den syriske hær, givet den mest kampdygtige gruppering af internationale terrorister deres marchordrer. På denne baggrund har jeg truffet en beslutning: Det meste af det russiske militærkontingent, der er i den Syriske Arabiske Republik, vil vende hjem til Rusland. I vender sejrrige hjem til jeres slægtninge, forældre, hustruer, børn og venner. Jeres fædreland venter på jer, mine venner. God rejse hjem, og tak for jeres tjeneste«, sagde Putin og advarede dernæst: »Hvis terrorister igen skulle løfte hovedet, vil vi levere dem et sådant slag, som de endnu ikke har set.

Vi vil aldrig glemme de dødsfald og tab, vi har lidt i anti-terrorkampen, både her i Syrien og i Rusland. Men det vil ikke tvinge os til at folde hænderne og trække os. Det er ikke vores nationale karaktertræk. Tværtimod, så vil disse minder give os yderligere styrke til at udrydde denne absolutte ondskab – international terrorisme – uanset, under hvilken forklædning, den måtte skjule sig …

Dette er, hvad militærtjeneste handler om; dette er førsteprioritet for dem, der har helliget deres liv til at tjene deres folk«, sagde præsidenten. »Ved at hjælpe det syriske folk bevare deres statsdannelse og modgå terrorangreb, har I leveret et knusende slag til dem, der åbenlyst og frækt truede vores land.«

Den syriske præsident Assad sagde, idet han takkede Putin for at hjælpe Syrien, »De resultater, vi har fået, er meget signifikante og betydningsfulde for os. Mødets spørgsmål – ødelæggelsen af militante kæmpere fra ISIS – er afgørende for hele verden. Vi tacklede det«, sagde Assad.

Generalløjtnant Sergei Surovikin, øverstbefalende for den russiske styrke i Syrien, rapporterede, at det militære kontingent allerede er begyndt at trække styrker tilbage, inklusive 25 fly og militærpersonel fra militærpolitiet, kommandoenheden, felthospitalet og minerydningscentret. »Den resterende styrke vil kunne tackle sine opgaver lige så effektivt.«

Udvid den Nye Silkevej til Vestasien og Afrika.
Tale af Hussein Askary på Schiller Instituttets
konference i Tyskland, 25. nov., 2017

Der er intet urealistisk ved det, jeg her fremlægger om Sydvestasien og Afrika. Grunden til, at jeg er forhåbningsfuld, er, at det nye paradigme inden for internationale relationer har fået fodfæste, og den gamle imperieorden blegner. Den anden, mere subjektive grund til at være optimistisk er, at vi vil fortsætte med at kæmpe for at få dette til at ske.

Imperiet lurer stadig farligt, som en såret tiger, og kunne angribe. Imperiets ideologi med dets aksiomer og overbevisninger om forholdet mellem menneske og natur, mellem menneske og menneske og mellem nation og nation, vil fortsat være en kilde til fare for den menneskelige race. For eksempel, den overbevisning, at penge får ting til at ske. Eller miljøforkæmpernes idé om, at menneskelige aktiviteter for at hæve samfundets levestandard altid har en negativ virkning på naturen og miljøet, og at menneskene simpelt hen bør forhindres i at vokse i antal, og i en voksende levestandard.

Lavrov og Tillerson mødes i Wien om Syrien, Ukraine, Nordkorea, Afghanistan

8. dec., 2017 – Den russiske udenrigsminister Sergei Lavrov og den amerikanske udenrigsminister Rex Tillerson mødtes på sidelinjen af et møde i Organisationen for Sikkerhed og Samarbejde (OSCE) i det Europæiske Ministerråd i Wien. De diskuterede Syrien, Nordkorea og Ukraine.

Lavrov informerede Tillerson om, at Rusland er rede til at hjælpe Nordkorea og USA med at etablere en direkte dialog om sikkerhedsgarantier for Pyongyang. »Vi ved, at Nordkorea først og fremmest ønsker at tale med USA om sikkerhedsgarantier. Vi er rede til at støtte det. Vi er rede til at promovere sådanne forhandlinger«, understregede Lavrov. Det Russiske Udenrigsministerium sagde, »De russiske og amerikanske topdiplomater gav ligeledes udtryk for det fælles standpunkt, at Nordkorea strengt må overholde FN’s Sikkerhedsråds resolutioner.«

Om Syrien lød udtalelsen fra Ministeriet, »De to sider diskuterede yderligere skridt for at afslutte den civile konflikt i Syrien via en etablering af en holdbar forhandlingsproces, der involverer alle syriske, politiske kræfter, inklusive inden for rammerne af Genève-processen og i den forestående Kongres for National Dialogs regi i Sotji (Rusland), med den samtidige fuldførelse af besejringen af internationale terroristgrupper.«

Tillerson sagde, at Ukraine var hovedforhindringen i de amerikansk-russiske bånd, men at den amerikanske præsident altid har søgt at etablere gode relationer med Rusland. »Vi kan være uenige i andre arenaer, i Syrien. Vi kan være uenige inden for andre områder«, sagde Tillerson. »Men det spørgsmål, der står i vejen, er Ukraine.«

I et separat møde med medlemmer af OSCE’s særlige overvågningsmission til Ukraine sagde Tillerson, at USA arbejder sammen med Rusland om FN’s fredsbevarende forslag iht.

Ny polsk premierminister ønsker at prioritere industri og infrastruktur

8. dec., 2017 – Den polske premierminister Beata Szydlo, der trådte tilbage i går, vil blive erstattet af Mateusz Marowiecki, der hidtil har været økonomiminister. Det forventes, at han vil give højeste prioritet til investeringer med en stærk statslig intervention i især infrastruktur og industri – hvilket kunne flytte Warszawa endnu længere væk fra Bruxelles. Dette indebærer en øget rolle for Kina, fordi Polen allerede er det østeuropæiske land, der har flest kinesiske investeringer, og i de seneste måneder er orienteringen mod den Nye Silkevej øget i Polens offentlige og gængse medier.

Marowiecki har været en stærk kritiker af den overdrevne privatisering i den polske økonomi og bankpraksis i løbet af de seneste 30 år. Han ønsker at standse kapitalflugt ved at tage de banker, der i dag for det meste er udenlandsk ejet, tilbage, for at få øget finansiering til rådighed for investeringer i jernbane- og vejinfrastruktur og i 20 udvalgte industrisektorer, og han ønsker øget beskæftigelse og en udvidelse af skattegrundlaget og en fortsat vækst af BNP på mindst 4 %, som blev opnået i 2016, for de kommende år. For den neoliberalistiske lejr af eksperter og økonomer, som Leczek Balcerowicz, der har domineret Polens økonomi under hele den katastrofale periode efter 1989, har Marowiecki været en slags fjende nummer ét. Det faktum, at han tiltrådte embedet en uge efter 16+1-topmødet i Budapest, hvor diskussion af infrastrukturprojekter havde en fremtrædende plads, er sandsynligvis mere end blot en tilfældighed.

»Med det voksende tempo mod
Verdenslandbroen, må særlige anklager
Mueller gå!« Dansk Udskrift.
Schiller Institut Nyt Paradigme Webcast,
7. dec., 2017, med Helga Zepp-LaRouche

I Europa ser det endnu mere dystert ud, for de europæiske nationer befinder sig i en totalt kaotisk tilstand. Der er de øst- og sydeuropæiske nationer, der ønsker at gå sammen med Kina i Bælte & Vej Initiativet; der er et totalt hysteri fra EU’s side og også i vid udstrækning fra den tyske regerings side – hvad der så er tilbage af den – og som siger, »Kina opsplitter Europa«. Hvilket ikke er sandt! Kinesernes svar på denne anklage var, at Kina ikke behøver opsplitte Europa, det har det allerede selv gjort. Men der finder ingen diskussion sted i Europa om bankopdeling. Faktisk traf EU for blot et par uger siden beslutning om nye retningslinjer, der forbyder bankopdeling. De europæiske nationers overlevelse og disse EU-politikker er således uforenelige.

Vi må have en offentlig diskussion i Tyskland om f.eks., at vi må vende tilbage til den form for kreditpolitik, vi havde i perioden efter krigen med Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (Kreditanstalt for genopbygning); men, vi må have finansiering af realøkonomien, og hele denne kasinoøkonomi må lukkes ned.

Jeg mener, at den største fare lige nu består i et ukontrolleret kollaps. Disse advarsler fra Bundesbank og BIS er virkelig en advarsel om, at folk må se at vågne op og ændre politik, før det er for sent: Så gå sammen med os i kampen for at få Glass-Steagall på dagsordenen, også i de europæiske lande.

Tiden er inde til at forsvare præsidenten, overvinde kuppet,
overvinde Det britiske Imperium og gå ind i en totalt ny og fremgangsrig, skøn fremtid.
LaRouche PAC Internationale Webcast, 8. dec., 2017.

»Tiden er inde til at forsvare præsidenten, overvinde kuppet, overvinde Det britiske Imperium og gå ind i en totalt ny og fremgangsrig, skøn fremtid. Jeg mener, dette er et vidunderligt perspektiv.« (Citat af Helga Zepp-LaRouche.)

Vært Matthew Ogden: God aften. Det er 8. december, 2017; jeg er Matthew Ogden, og dette er vores fredags-webcast med en strategisk oversigt fra larouchepac.com.

Jeg vil straks lægge ud med en meddelelse, som nogle af vore seere måske så i går, fra Kesha Rogers; nemlig, at hun opstiller som uafhængig kandidat til USA’s Kongres, for en plads i Texas’ 9. Kongresdistrikt. Mange af jer kender Kesha fra hendes tidligere kampagner for føderalt embede. Hun har to gange tidligere stillet op som demokratisk kandidat, både i 2010 og i 2012, hvor hun stillede op til USA’s Repræsentanternes Hus. Dernæst stillede hun op som kandidat til USA’s Senat i 2014. I denne kampagne fik hun stemmer nok til at fremtvinge en anden valgrunde (mellem de to kandidater, der får flest stemmer). Alle disse tre kampagner for føderalt embede tiltrak national, og faktisk international, opmærksomhed, pga. den valgplatform, på baggrund af hvilken Kesha dristigt kørte sin kampagne.

For nylig har Kesha været omtalt i en video fra New York Times, om orkanen Harveys ødelæggelse i Houston, Texas, og som på tragisk vis kostede Keshas far og stedmor livet. Hun har nu registreret som kandidat til USA’s Repræsentanternes Hus, hvor hun igen opstiller i Texas’ 9. Kongresdistrikt som uafhængig kandidat. Jeg vil nu afspille Keshas video, som hun optog ved Udenrigsministeriet, efter at have indgivet sit kandidatur med det nødvendige papirarbejde. Kesha Rogers:

(Video)

Her følger engelsk udskrift af Keshas video og resten af webcastet:

KESHA ROGERS:  Good afternoon everyone.  This is
Kesha Rogers, and I’m here to announce some very exciting news to
you.  I have just filed here in Austin, Texas with the Secretary
of State for an independent candidacy for the House of
Representatives District 9 for the US House of Representatives.
I look forward to bringing more news and information concerning
this campaign that I’m launching at a very timely and needed
circumstance as we find ourselves with a void of leadership in
the country.  Where the discussion of real economic policies,
real solutions for the country are being avoided and you have
much grandstanding going on by political media [inaud; 02:57] and
Congressional representatives.
But what is clear is that there is a shift going on in the
world that’s ready for economic development and cooperation, and
I’m ready to lead the fight in the United States.  Many of your
recognize my campaigns from before, of providing real solutions
to the American people.  So, as I said, I wanted to just bring
that information, that bit of news to you, that I will be running
an independent candidacy for the 9th Congressional District from
the state of Texas for the US House of Representatives.  So, look
forward to more breaking developments around the campaign.  Thank
you.

OGDEN:  Kesha Rogers said in that video announcement, and what
has in fact been the reality over the last few months, is that
there is, indeed, a shift going on in the world in the direction
of economic development.  Of course, led by the initiatives from
China, the Belt and Road Initiative and the New Silk Road.  That
is absolutely the paradigm shift which the United States must
join, and we need leadership that will bring us into that
paradigm.
Now, there’s one thing to note about this announcement by
Kesha Rogers, who made saving NASA and the US manned space
program, the restoration of the US space program, a central
feature of all of her Federal election campaigns.  This
announcement by Kesha Rogers came on the 45th anniversary of the
Apollo Moon landing; that occurred December 7, 1972.  This was
the last time that human beings walked on the surface of the
Moon.  The last living astronaut of that Apollo 17 mission,
Harrison Schmitt, gave an interview which was published also
yesterday, to the {Albuquerque Journal}, in which he outlined the
tragedy of the decision that was taken in the aftermath of the
assassination of John F Kennedy to abandon the US commitment to
the manned space program.  To make the next step after the hugely
Apollo missions to the Moon, the logical next step would have
been a permanent settlement on the Moon and manned missions to
Mars.  What Harrison Schmitt said is that the decision that was
made by the Johnson administration to cut NASA’s budget, and
especially to cut back on the Saturn V class program, the Saturn
V rocket program, the heavy lift rockets; in effect killing the
US space program and preventing us from taking those next steps.
The permanent settlement on the Moon, and the landing of a man or
a woman on Mars; both of which, he said, could have already been
accomplished in the last 45 years.  So, the article in the
{Albuquerque Journal} began by saying the following, and I think
this was right to the point.  It said, “A settlement on the Moon;
mankind well on its way to Mars.  A potential clean power source
so powerful that about 200 pounds could provide electricity to a
major city for a year.  New Mexico astronaut Harrison Jack
Schmitt says that these are a few of the possibilities that might
well have been a reality by now, had the administration of
President Lyndon Johnson not decided to limit production of the
massive Saturn V rockets that carried Apollo astronauts —
including Schmitt — to the Moon.”  The article quotes Harrison
Schmitt, and I’d like to put that quote on the screen [Fig. 1]
here.  He says, “We really gave up on deep space exploration.
Had things gone differently, we could be much farther along now
than we are today.  No question, we would have had a settlement
on the Moon, and would seriously have a program going to Mars if
not already there.”
Then, Harrison Schmitt pointed out in the interview the
importance of mining resources on the Moon which are not readily
available here on Earth; most notably, Helium-3.  He said, “Those
are resources derived from the solar wind and particles of the
Sun.  One of those, Helium-3, isn’t readily available on Earth,
but is embedded in the lunar soil.  It is a nearly ideal fuel for
fusion power.  If we had it here on Earth, I’m convinced we would
be using it right now.”  He went on to say, “It doesn’t produce
neutrons, but it does produce alpha particles and protons; and
those can be converted directly to electricity without any waste
products.  We would have a plentiful, clean power source.  It’s
still there, and it’s not going anywhere.  Two hundred and twenty
pounds of Helium-3 would provide the power necessary to serve
Dallas for a year.”
Then later, the article actually points out that China is
already working on plans to mine Helium-3 on the lunar surface.
Then it concludes by saying the following:  “Schmitt believes
that the current administration” — the Trump administration —
“is committed to continuing construction of a large rocket for a
space launch system.  He said that this new spacecraft, which is
larger and much more powerful than the original Apollo capsules,
is ‘built to take humans farther than they’ve ever gone
before.’|”  Then it ends by quoting Harrison Schmitt, saying that
another benefit of America having this large rocket system is,
“Settlements off the Earth can be very important philosophically
into the future.  It is one way in which the human species can
perpetuate itself against the very remote possibility of a very
large asteroid impact on the Earth.”
So, this is an extraordinary interview with Harrison
Schmitt, talking about the kinds of manned missions to the Moon,
lunar settlements, manned missions to Mars, Helium-3 mining on
the Moon, fusion power here on Earth, and the idea that we have
to protect mankind against the possibility of an asteroid impact
here on planet Earth.  So, I think that’s a very clear statement
of exactly the sort of vision which is needed right now.  And it
really requires the type of political leadership that you heard
from Kesha Rogers to make that happen.  Absolutely, those are a
number of the things that the LaRouche Movement has been focusing
on and calling for, really for decades; going all the way back to
Lyndon LaRouche’s initiative back in the 1980s around his
nationally televised video “A Woman on Mars”, and all of the
crash programs for fusion and space exploration that the LaRouche
Movement has led for decades.
With everything else that we reported on in the recent
period in terms of the New Silk Road and the mega-projects which
have been initiated by China, the same really is true of space.
In that article, they did point out that China has already taken
the initiative to begin a program for exploring the mining of
Helium-3 on the Moon, and really some breakthrough projects in
terms of lunar exploration.  The article that I pointed out, that
article cites the fact that the future is being led by China.
And you can really look at space exploration, I think, as the
fourth facet of this Belt and Road Initiative.  We focus mainly
on the aspects here on Earth.  We can look at the rail
connections over land, that’s the One Belt, One Road.  We can
look at the Maritime Silk Road via sea, we’ve even discussed the
idea of the Silk Road on Ice for the development and exploration
of the Arctic.  But look at the fourth aspect here, and you can
see that China is also leading the way.  The Interplanetary Silk
Road in Space you could call it, for the development of cislunar
space — that’s the space between the Earth and the Moon — not
just low-Earth orbit where the ISS [International Space Station]
is right now, but the other aspects of this cislunar space.  The
settlement and development of the lunar surface, which includes
this Helium-3 mining; and the manned exploration of Mars and
beyond.
In fact, this was said really beautifully in an interview
with a former astronaut from Romania, which was published in
Xinhua this week.  This is Dumitru-Dorin Prunariu; he was the
first man in space from that country, from Romania.  He said the
following.  This is the interview [Fig. 2] “China Values
Cooperation in the Aerospace Industry”.  This is the quote:
“After the Belt and Road Initiative, I think China has a Galactic
Initiative in mind.  China has invited all developing countries
to conduct experiments on its space station, planned to operate
in orbit in 2022.  In 2022, China will have its own space
station, and it is currently encouraging the developing countries
to take part in space programs for the benefit of mankind.”
So, that’s a beautiful quotation.  He says, “After the Belt
and Road Initiative, I think China has a Galactic Initiative in
mind.”  And indeed, the Chinese have just announced that they are
actively planning the next steps of their lunar exploration
program.  This will follow the robotic missions to the Moon that
are being launched over the next two years.  There are various
possibilities that are being discussed in terms of a permanent
lunar research station to be built by the Chinese.  Either
unmanned with robots carrying out scientific research and
technical experiments on the surface of the Moon, or a manned
permanent research station there on the lunar surface.
A Chinese space science professor by the name of Joao
Weixing from Beijing University was quoted in an article by the
{Global Times} saying the following:  “By constructing lunar
research stations, we can carry out lunar explorations which
would be much larger in scale and richer in content than are
possible with short-term forays.  Such a station could slash the
cost of returning rock samples to the Earth.  It would enhance
lunar geology studies,” he said, “and would have better energy
efficiency than lunar rovers, as the station can deploy a much
bigger solar power generator.”  So, in other words, the lunar
rovers could be stationed at that station, and could go out on
exploration missions, but then come back to recharge; leading to
a much more permanent presence there for research purposes and
exploration on the surface of the Moon.  So, with the
construction of that lunar station, obviously that would require
a heavy lift rocket, similar to those Saturn V class heavy lift
rockets which carried the Apollo astronauts to the Moon almost 50
years ago.  But indeed, China already has a rocket of that
magnitude under development.  In the meantime, China is moving
right along with its other lunar programs, the Chang’e V mission,
which would bring back lunar samples from the Moon, from the
Earth-facing side of the Moon.  And also, a Chang’e 4 mission
which is still in operation and on board, which will land on the
completely unexplored far side of the Moon, which has never been
done before.
So, those two missions by China are already in motion, and
may be launched as soon as next year.  Then close on the heels of
those two missions, there are reports that there a number of
other very significant missions by China that are on the books,
to investigate the geological structure and the mineral
composition of the Moon’s South Pole which has never been
explored before; and to return samples from the Moon’s polar
region.  So, extremely ambitious and extremely important lunar
research missions.  That’s exactly what we would have already
been doing over the last 45 years, Harrison Schmitt said, if we
had not abandoned the commitments that the United States had
under the Apollo Project.
Now, not coincidentally, the LaRouche Political Action
Committee has just announced the pending publication of a new
pamphlet, which is a revival and a further exploration of the
immediate necessity of the implementation of Lyndon LaRouche’s
Four Economic Laws.  And the final of those four economic laws is
to adopt a fusion-driver crash program; which really encapsulates
the subsuming principle from which the other three of those four
laws flow:  1.  Reorganizing this bankrupt financial system with
an immediate Glass-Steagall reform.  2.  The creation of a
Hamiltonian national bank.  3.  The issuance of massive amounts
of Federal credit to swiftly upshift the productive powers of the
US labor force.
But all of those are towards the goal of achieving a giant
leap in the technological platform of our economy as a whole, by
means of this fusion-driver crash program.  That’s the fourth law
as Lyndon LaRouche stipulated it in those Four Laws in his
original 2014 document.  As he states in the conclusion of that
document, and I’m going to put the quote right here up on the
screen [Fig. 3].  This is Lyndon LaRouche’s description of what
the ultimate goal of this program is.
“Man is mankind’s only true measure of the history of our
Solar System and what reposes within it.  That is the same thing
as the most honored meaning and endless achievement of the human
species now within nearby solar space, heading upwards to mastery
over the Sun and its Solar System; the one discovered uniquely as
a matter of fact, by Johannes Kepler.  A fusion economy is the
presently urgent next step and standard for man’s gains of power
within the Solar System and later, beyond.”
So again, that’s Lyndon LaRouche in his June 10, 2014
document, “Four Laws To Save the United States Now”.  And that is
the subsuming principle behind the entirety of that integral
document, that Four Laws vision in terms of what must be done to
immediately mobilize an economic recovery and a dramatic
transformation in the economy of the United States.  Now, since
LaRouche published that document, there have been extraordinary
breakthroughs in terms of the commitment to exactly that kind of
vision that’s coming out of China.  That is this New Paradigm
that we continue to discuss, with these mega projects and the
development of these completely undeveloped parts of the planet.
That’s coupled together with what I just demonstrated as China’s
commitment to a lunar and extra-terrestrial exploration for their
space program there.
Now, what Kesha Rogers stated in that video announcement,
and what she has consistently stood for in her campaigns for
Federal office, is exactly that kind of vision.  We see the
continued campaign to bring the United States into this New Silk
Road; and there have been major advancements along those lines
just even over the last few weeks.  Including with President
Trump’s recent “state visit-plus” to meet with President Xi
Jinping, and their very important personal relationship and this
new era of cooperation in US-China relations.
Now, I should state that 50 days from now, President Trump
will be delivering his first State of the Union address to the
Joint Session of Congress.  It’s been announced that this State
of the Union will take place on January 30th; this will be
President Trump addressing both the House of Representatives and
the US Senate, in addition to the other representatives of the
branches of government — the Supreme Court and the Cabinet.
This will be his first speech to this full Congressional body
since his Joint Address which he delivered in February of this
year.
Now, I think it’s worthwhile to go back and recall a few
aspects of that speech that President Trump made.  Both in terms
of demonstrating what his commitment was when he first came into
office, which he in large measure has retained this commitment,
despite the kind of ongoing, 24-hour around-the-clock attacks on
his Presidency.  But also as sort of a measuring rod against
which we should hold up this next 50 days, as we now initiate
this countdown to the first State of the Union address on January
30th, and recommit ourselves to the implementation of this Four
Laws, Hamiltonian economic program that the LaRouche Political
Action Committee has been leading the fight on over the last
year.
So, let’s recall a few aspects of President Trump’s speech
in February of this year to the Joint Session of Congress.  In
that speech, he said the following — and I’ll put the quotes up
on the screen here [Fig. 4]:  “In nine years, the United States
will celebrate the 250th anniversary of our founding.  250 years
since the day we declared our independence.  It will be one of
the great milestones in the history of the world.  But what will
America look like as we reach our 250th year?  What kind of
country will we leave for our children?  I will not allow the
mistakes of recent decades past to define the course of our
future.”  Then he listed a series of promises [Fig. 5].  He said,
“Dying industries will come roaring back to life.  Crumbling
infrastructure will be replaced with new roads, bridges, tunnels,
airports, and railways gleaming across our very, very beautiful
land.  Our terrible drug epidemic will slow down and ultimately
stop.  And our neglected inner cities will see a rebirth of hope,
safety, and opportunity.”
Now, to accomplish these goals, President Trump referenced a
few key aspects of what he would later identify, correctly, as
the American System of economics.  He quoted Abraham Lincoln,
stating the following.  President Trump said [Fig. 6] “I believe
strongly in free trade.  But it also has to be fair trade.  It’s
been a long time since we had fair trade.  The first Republican
President, Abraham Lincoln, warned that ‘The abandonment of the
protective policy by the American government will produce want
and ruin among our people.’  Lincoln was right, and it’s time we
heeded his advice and his words.”  Then later in the speech,
President Trump cited Dwight D Eisenhower [Fig. 7]. He said,
“Another Republican President, Dwight D Eisenhower, initiated the
last truly great national infrastructure program — the building
the interstate highway system.  The time has come for a new
program of national rebuilding.  America has spent approximately
$6 trillion in the Middle East.  All the while, our
infrastructure at home is crumbling.  With this $6 trillion, we
could have rebuilt our country twice, and maybe even three times.
To launch our national rebuilding, I will be asking Congress to
approve legislation that produces a $1 trillion investment in
infrastructure of the United States, creating millions of new
jobs.”
Then later in the speech, he returned to his theme of the
coming 250th anniversary of the founding of our country with the
Declaration of Independence [Fig. 8].  He said, “On our 100th
anniversary in 1876, citizens from across our nation came to
Philadelphia to celebrate America’s Centennial.  At that
celebration, the country’s builders and artists and inventors
showed off their wonderful creations.  Imagine the wonders our
country could know in America’s 250th year.  Think of the marvels
we can achieve if we simply set free the dreams of our people.
Cures to the illnesses that have always plagued us are not too
much to hope.  American footprints on distant worlds are not too
big a dream.  This is our vision.  This is our mission.
“But we can only get there together.  We are one people with
one destiny.  The time for small thinking is over.  The time for
trivial fights is behind us.  We just need the courage to share
the dreams that fill our hearts.  The bravery to express the
hopes that stir our souls.  And the confidence to turn those
hopes and those dreams into action.  I am asking all members of
Congress to join me in dreaming big and bold and daring things
for our country.  I am asking everyone watching tonight to seize
this moment.  Believe in yourselves, believe in your future, and
believe once more in America.”
Now, that was February of this year.  Again, we have 50 days
until the State of the Union address.  But I think that for any
{honest} member of Congress, or political-minded citizen of this
country, this is the yardstick according to which President Trump
and President Trump’s actions should be measured.  Has he
accomplished these stated objectives for the good of the people
of the United States?  Granted, those are very ambitious and
beautifully stated visions for what the United States could
accomplish over the coming eight, nine years until our 250th
anniversary celebration.  Indeed, over the last several months,
President Trump has repeatedly returned to some of those stated
missions and has clearly retained his commitment to that kind of
bold vision for the United States.  But indeed, we have yet to
see an significant action along the lines of the central core
aspect of what he called for in that speech to Congress, which
was the $1 trillion infrastructure investment.
Now, this must come not in the form of public-private
partnerships or PPPs, or any of those kinds of ill-conceived
concepts; but must come in the form — as we’ve repeatedly made
clear — of a Hamiltonian national infrastructure bank.  This was
stipulated as such in Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Economic Laws.  The
necessary precursor to that is absolutely the restoration of
Glass-Steagall.  We are on the cusp of what could possibly be
another massive trans-Atlantic financial crisis.  So in
anticipation of that, we must immediately erect that kind of
Glass-Steagall firewall.  But, an infrastructure bank, or a
national bank of the form that Alexander Hamilton created, could
then secure these massive amounts of Federal credit flows for the
rapid increase of the productive powers of our labor force;
exactly what is spelled out there in Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Laws
document.
That’s not to say that the kinds of joint investments that
President Trump secured from China, as in the case of the $87
billion in investment in the state of West Virginia; that’s not
to say that that’s not significant.  Of course, that very much is
significant.  But that comes nowhere near the $1 trillion plus
that’s necessary in terms of this massive Hamiltonian Federal
credit investment in the infrastructure of the United States.
But what should be said, and this directly goes to the core of
what we must be telling members of Congress, including those
Democrats such as Al Green from the 9th District of Texas who
would rather spend their time introducing completely unfounded
articles of impeachment against this President.  These articles
of impeachment, by the way, failed miserably; notably the day
right before Kesha Rogers announced her candidacy to run in Al
Green’s district.  These members of Congress should be ashamed
that instead of getting to work, accomplishing jointly in
collaboration — Republicans, Democrats beyond these party
factions.  Instead of getting to work accomplishing these goals
that were set out by President Trump in this speech 10 months
ago, they have spent the majority of their time engaged in
partisan politics and getting swept up in this political hit-job
or witch hunt against President Trump around the so-called
“Russia-gate” collusion.
We have a 50-day countdown, and we should seek to make very
rapid progress in securing these very specific goals that are
contained in the Four Economic Laws of Lyndon LaRouche, between
now and the State of the Union address on January 30th.  And
indeed, this is the context for Kesha Rogers’ announcement for
her candidacy for the US Congress.
Now, this is what should be being discussed on the morning
talk shows, in the editorial pages of the leading national
newspapers and magazine covers. But rather, what are you hearing,
day in and day out?  Russia-gate, collusion, Mueller
investigation, etc., etc.  How much coverage did this ill-fated
impeachment resolution receive, despite the fact that the
majority of the House of Representatives voted against it,
including two-thirds of the Democratic Caucus.  And in spite of
the fact that a CBS poll has just put out that nearly 50% of all
Americans are very clear that this Russia-gate investigation is
100% politically motivated; it has nothing to do with justice.
But what are you hearing about?  Al Green’s grandstanding speech
was played over and over again on Wednesday.  That’s what you’re
hearing about.
What are you not hearing about?  Well, what’s not being
reported is the fact that the entire Mueller apparatus is coming
apart at the seams.  This entire thing is taking on water; and as
the {Wall Street Journal} rightly but uniquely stated in a signed
editorial earlier this week titled “Mueller’s Credibility
Problem; the Special Prosecutor Is Stonewalling Congress and
Protecting the FBI”.  This editorial is the notable exception to
the rest of the propaganda and hype out there from these national
news outlets.  But this is the quote from the {Wall Street
Journal} [Fig. 7].  It says, “The public has a right to know
whether the Steele dossier inspired the Comey probe, and whether
it led to intrusive government eavesdropping.”  Then they say
that they doubt “that Mr. Mueller’s ability to conduct a fair and
credible probe of the FBI’s considerable part in the Russia-Trump
drama.”  This of course is with regards to the bombshell
revelation that has come out about the now-fired FBI agent Peter
Strzok; who was not only responsible for changing the language in
the Clinton prosecution announcement, which led to her being
taken completely off the hook.  But also was central in the
operation to set up General Flynn.  It’s come out through his
text messages and his emails to his mistress, that he was 100%
virulently politically biased against President Trump and in
favor of Hillary Clinton.  But also, it’s not only him; it’s the
entirety practically of this Mueller team, which is hopelessly
biased and conflicted when it comes to their anti-Trump politics.
This was elaborated in detail by Representative Justin Amash
during the hearings yesterday in Congress; also by Representative
Jim Jordan.
Then, as the {Wall Street Journal} goes on to say, “The
latest news supports our view that Mr. Mueller is too conflicted
to investigate the FBI, and should step down in favor of someone
more credible.  The investigation would surely continue, though
perhaps with someone who doesn’t think his job includes
protecting the FBI and Mr. Comey from answering questions about
their role in the 2016 elections.”  So, this should really serve
to demonstrate, along with all the other initiatives that are not
being reported but are steadily proceeding in the US Congress by
Senator Chuck Grassley and others, this should serve to
demonstrate how effective the LaRouche PAC campaign to expose
this entire coup network has been.  With the special
investigation dossier, the “Robert Mueller Is an Amoral Legal
Assassin”, that special report which came out from LaRouche PAC;
this is now going into its second printing.  This has penetrated
the very highest levels of the US Congress and those who are
involved in this investigation on both sides.
So, this is the fight of our lives in terms of the battle
which is now raging over the heart and soul of the US Presidency
and what policy the United States will adopt.  I think if we
juxtapose these two channels, in terms of on the one side, this
ongoing daily ghost of Russia-gate McCarthyism-style propaganda
that you’re being inundated with.  But then on the other side,
this clearly inspired commitment of this reinvigoration of the
vision of the United States.  What Kesha Rogers stands for, and
what she has now initiated in terms of her campaign for US
Congress once again; and then also what is coming from abroad in
terms of the initiatives from China and elsewhere, in terms of
this One Belt, One Road initiative.  And then, as was
characterized, a Galactic Initiative that China has now
undertaken.  This is what Harrison Schmitt is calling for us to
rejoin now 45 years after the shutting down of the Apollo
mission.  The last man to walk on the Moon, 45 years ago today.
So, let me end this broadcast with the words of Helga
Zepp-LaRouche.  She said, during a discussion earlier this week
with associates the following:  “Countries which do not cooperate
with the Belt and Road Initiative are going to be sidelined to
the detriment of their populations.”  She said that this tectonic
shift which is now underway globally with the collapse of the old
trans-Atlantic financial system of speculation and short-term
profit, she said the collapse of that system and then the
tectonic shift which is occurring with the rapid rise of the new
system, this Belt and Road Initiative, we’re seeing an
unbelievable dynamic which is now going on.  She said, as we
covered extensively, “There are conferences every single day from
all across the world; be it South America, Africa, Europe, Asia.
There are more countries, more forces, more businesses and
industries now joining this New Paradigm.  The recent statement
by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe,” she said, “that Japan
will cooperate with the Belt and Road Initiative is extremely
important.”  She said, “Countries which do not cooperate, indeed,
are going to be sidelined and left in the dust of history.”  She
said that “The Chinese policy, contrary to what you’re being fed
in the Western media, is not a policy geopolitically against any
nation.  Nor is it somehow a conflict between the United States
and other countries.”  She said “This is a question of joining
the future, joining this vision for an absolutely fantastic
perspective of ‘win-win’ cooperation and development for the
entire world.”
So, she said, “Our campaign must be focused on Lyndon
LaRouche’s Four Economic Laws; on LaRouche’s economics.  On the
United States joining the New Silk Road; on US space cooperation
with other countries.  And I think,” she said, “this is a perfect
moment to turn all of the United States towards an optimistic
campaign.  This can become the absolutely decisive turning force
for the whole United States.  Now is the time to defend the
President, to defeat the coup, to defeat the British Empire, and
go into a completely new and prosperous, beautiful future.  I
think this is a wonderful perspective,” she said.
So, with that as our final word, I’d like to thank you for
joining us here in our broadcast today.  There are going to be
rapid developments that occur over the coming days and weeks, and
we implore you to continue to stay tuned to larouchepac.com.  To
keep your eyes out for the second printing of this dossier on the
Mueller coup apparatus, and to also keep your eyes out for the
coming publication of a new pamphlet on Lyndon LaRouche’s Four
Economic Laws.   We enter now a 50-day countdown between now and
the State of the Union address, and I think we have our work cut
out for us.  So, thank you again for tuning in, and please stay
tuned to larouchepac.com.




Extending the New Silk Road to Southwest Asia and Africa:
A vision of an Economic Renaissance




Briterne og saudierne bruger deres Yemen-blodbad
til at forsøge at lancere krig mod Iran

5. dec., 2017 – Det britiske Imperium forsøger, gennem deres saudiske aktiv og medskyldige elementer i Washington, at udløse en bredere, regional krig mod Iran, i hele Mellemøsten. I Yemen, hvor saudiernes indsats er gået til yderligheder i løbet af de seneste tre uger, ses dette af mantraet, der konstant følges af saudierne og de vestlige medier, hvor de konstant betegner houthiernes Ansarullah-bevægelse som »allieret med Iran«. For eksempel hævdede den saudiske ambassadør til Yemen, Mohammed al-Jaber, at de såkaldte forbrydelser, begået af houthierne, for en stor del skyldes deres »iranske uddannelse«.

En rapport fra Xinhua fra 4. dec. citerer en militær kommanderende, der er loyal over for den tidligere yemenitiske præsident, Ali Abdullah Saleh, der blev dræbt i går (4. dec.), og som rapporterer, at »i nattens løb nedkastede fly fra [den saudiske] koalition våben og diverse former for kommunikationsudstyr til de kommanderende, der anfører den anti-houthiske opstand i Sana’a«. Xinhua rapporterer ligeledes, at U.A.E.-udenrigsminister Anwar Gargash den 3. dec. tweetede, »at opstanden mod de iranskstøttede houthi-oprørere ’have brug for støtte’ for at ’beskytte den Arabiske Halvø mod Iran’. Desuden rapporterer Xinhua, at »pro-Saleh-soldater også fik luftstøtte fra saudiskledede krigsfly under nattens kampe med houthier, der gjorde fremskridt og indtog væsentlige nabolag i Sana’a«.

Teheran er kommet med en stærk respons. »Yemens befolkning vil få sine aggressorer til at fortryde deres handlinger«, sagde Irans præsident Hassan Rouhani i en fjernsynstransmitteret tale her til morgen, rapporterer AFP. Tasnim-nyhedsbureauet citerede kommandør for den Islamiske Revolutionsgarde, generalmajor Mohammad Ali Jafari, der hyldede Salehs død som den seneste episode i at modarbejde en række komplotter, inklusive i den kurdiske region af Syrien og i Irak, som de giver saudierne skylden for.

Rapporter på jorden i Yemen maler et grumt billede af det, der ville være sket, hvis det var lykkedes den tidligere præsident Ali Abdullah Saleh at flygte fra Sana’a og slutte sig til den saudiske koalition. Det, de rapporterer, er, at en reel borgerkrig ville være brudt ud i hovedstaden og i andre områder, der har været under Houthi-Saleh-koalitionen (dvs., alliancen mellem Ansarullah-bevægelsen/militsen og Salehs Almene Folkekongresparti (GPC)).

Situationen i hovedstaden er nu under kontrol, og houthierne opfordrer det tilbageværende lederskab af GPC til at gentilslutte sig alliancen.

Saudierne har ikke evnen til at imødekomme den irregulære krigsførelse, lanceret af houthierne i et bjergrigt land, hvor konventionelle hære og våben er forældede, som tilfældet også var i Afghanistan. Uden at have en intern styrke, såsom det mislykkede Saleh-kup, er det næsten umuligt at besejre sådanne styrker, som det sås i Afghanistans tilfælde. Det eneste våben, der er tilbage, er masseudsultning af hele befolkningen.

På regionalt plan foretager saudierne og deres støtter i Storbritannien og USA nu træk for at optrappe imod Iran. Dette udfald og fremstød for en militær konfrontation med Iran kunne atter engang føre til, at hele Golfen og Sydvestasien sættes i brand.

Særlige anklager Muellers kupmagere
i panik: Deres forbrydelser er afsløret

Leder fra LaRouche PAC, USA, 6. dec., 2017 – De kræfter i USA, der tjener briternes bestræbelser på at fjerne Donald Trump fra embedet – Obamas efterretningsfolk; Obama/Clinton-demokraterne; samt de neokonservative republikanere – er ved at gå i panik. Deres udvalgte lejemorder til at udføre arbejdet med at ødelægge Trumps præsidentskab, Robert Mueller, vandt sine udmærkelser som chef for »Få ram på LaRouche«-specialstyrken i 1980’erne, som havde til hensigt at ødelægge den bevægelse, som Lyndon LaRouche har stiftet. På trods af, at han sendte LaRouche og flere af hans medarbejdere i fængsel på falske anklager, mislykkedes for Mueller at ødelægge denne bevægelse, og nu betaler han prisen for sin fiasko. EIR’s dossier, »Robert Mueller er en umoralsk, juridisk morder: Han vil gøre sit job, hvis I giver ham lov«, har gennemsyret USA’s politiske og diplomatiske institutioner og animeret Kongressen og andre til handling for at standse kuppet og har peget direkte på denne forræderiske sammensværgelses britiske arkitekter – MI6’s Christopher Steele og andre.

Bestræbelserne på at ødelægge LaRouche og den tilsvarende bestræbelse på at ødelægge Trump, har samme grundlæggende formål – både LaRouche og Trump har til hensigt at afslutte den britiske opsplitning af verden i Øst og Vest, som fastholder verden vaklende på randen af atomkrig mellem USA, og Rusland og Kina. Ligesom LaRouche foreslog en forening af de »Fire Magter« (Rusland, Kina, Indien og USA) for at afslutte Det britiske Imperium og udløse global udvikling, således insisterer Trump også på venskab og samarbejde med Rusland og Kina. Som Trump sagde i sin tale i Beijing: »Der er meget, der forbinder Øst og Vest«. For britiske geopolitikere er dette krigsord.

Men det britiske korthus smuldrer. Mueller-teamet er afsløret som partisankrigere, med deres bidende had til Trump og deres slaviske efterfølgelse af Obama/Hillary-krigspolitikken, der er afsløret i e-mails fra deres egen, beskidte, personlige liv. Og nu er de ved at gå i panik.

Joe Biden har, måske i et forsøg på at bevise sin underdanighed over for Imperiet med det formål at blive valgt til erstatte den mislykkede Hillary Clinton i den næste præsidentvalgkamp, været medforfatter af et psykotisk udfald mod Rusland i Foreign Affairs fra 5. dec., kvartalsmagasinet for den britiske imperieforpost i USA, Rådet for Udenrigsanliggender. Med titlen, »Hvordan vi hævder os over for Kreml – At forsvare demokrati mod dets fjender«, siger Biden, at USA må »afskrække russisk militær aggression«, gennemføre tankepoliti for at »rykke russisk misinformation og underminering op med rode og finde måder for myndigheder til at samarbejde med den private sektor for at modgå denne indblanding«. De onde russere, himler han op med en lidenskab à la McCarthy, har »med succes sammensmeltet organiserede kriminelle grupper, efterretningstjenester og korrupte erhvervsfolk« (det lyder virkelig som en beskrivelse af Obama/Bush-regimerne i USA). Han tilføjer, at Trump har nægtet at tro på (løgnen om), at Rusland stjal valget, »selv efter, han var blevet briefet af efterretningstopfolk« – hvor han her naturligvis refererer til forbryderne Clapper, Brennan og Comey.

I mainstream-medierne kommer der nu voksende krav om Muellers afsættelse – stanken er for stærk til at fortsætte mørklægningen.

Endnu et tegn på sindssyge ramte Kongressalen i dag, da demokrat fra Texas, Al Green, fremsatte lovforslag om at stille præsident Trump for en rigsret (impeachment). Forslaget blev hurtigt nedstemt, men 58 kongresmedlemmer afslørede sig selv ved at stemme for Greens forslag.

Det, som briterne mest frygter, er, at den amerikanske og europæiske befolkning vil opsnappe ånden af den Nye Silkevej, det nye paradigme, der nu gennemføres i næsten alle andre dele af verden gennem reelle, fysiske udviklingsprojekter, der anføres af Kina og Rusland. I hele Afrika, Latinamerika og Asien er nationer, der i århundreder er blevet holdt i et limbo af kolonial og post-kolonial kontrol, nu hastigt ved at blive transformeret til at blive moderne industrinationer, hvor deres befolkninger kan undfly fattigdom og får håb, ligesom Kina har transformeret sig selv på tredive korte år. Faktisk er denne ånd i færd med at vække nationer og borgere selv i Europa og USA, især i kølvandet på Trumps højst succesfulde møde med Xi Jinping, og efter kinesernes forpligtelse til at investere $283 mia. i genopbygning af den forfaldne, amerikanske infrastruktur og industrielle kapacitet – til en begyndelse.

Der er ikke længere noget, der kan retfærdiggøre, at det økonomiske og kulturelle forfald i Vesten bliver tolereret. De ideer, som Lyndon LaRouche har fremlagt hen over de seneste halvtreds år, bliver nu gennemført og antager en fysisk kraft i verden. Dette er vores tid.

Egypt’s 2030 Mega Projects: Investment Opportunities for Intermodal and Multimodal Connectivity

This is an edited transcript of a presentation by Mrs. Moni Abdullah to the Nov. 25-26 Schiller Institute Conference. She is the Executive Manager of Pyramids International, Cairo, Egypt.

Transcript

Good afternoon. Ladies and Gentlemen, Distinguished Guests, Dear Friends:

My name is Moni Abdullah. I am the general manager of Pyramids International group, which is a private sector company. First I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to be invited as a speaker today at such an important event. I would further extend my gratitude to the Schiller Institute, and Mrs. Helga Zepp-LaRouche in particular, for taking an interest in our company and in Egypt, and in an initiative and willingness to cooperate with the New Silk Road Project, for sharing the same courageous spirit of the Egyptians that human reason will be able to find the higher level where problems can be solved, and defending the rights of humanity to progress economically, morally, and intellectually, by development and connectivity.

My children are actually Swiss and I live in Geneva and in Egypt. I would like very much to see connectivity through Egypt to all of Africa, and possibly for the three continents to connect Europe, Africa, and Asia.

Our company is an events organizer. We organize conferences and exhibitions worldwide. We are an ISO-certified company and accredited with UFI, the global association of the exhibition industry.

Pyramids International group was established in 1993 and specializes in organizing, planning, and holding all kinds of large-scale international activities, such as conference, exhibitions, and trade shows. We work with different sectors, and organize around 115 events worldwide, basically in oil and gas, energy, and renewable energy, transportation, maritime and ports, shipping, and logistics, fashion, leather, furniture, health, real estate, general trade shows, auto shows, building and construction, household, food, machinery, and more.

In the continuous development of its business the company has established wide cooperation and interactive relations with the related governmental departments, trade associations, nongovernmental organizations, and scientific research institutes.

As a diversified service company, it also offers media services, digital information consulting services, research capacity and marketing solutions. Hence, our database marketing capacity and business connections help our worldwide international customers do business and to succeed in reaching new markets.

We organized the First Suez Canal Global Conference, last February, under the patronage of His Excellency President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the Egyptian President. Here are some photos of the exhibition and the conference at the same time.

This is the Suez Canal parallel dredging waterway canal. It’s a megaproject that was concluded in one year, to increase the depth of the canal and to have a double, parallel waterway. It reduces the time of transport, for example, from Asia to Europe, and it reduces the cost as well. It can now accommodate the biggest vessels, thanks to its greater depth. These are some photos of the different container ships. That is the Suez Canal Economic Zone, or corridor.

The conference we organized, was to market the megaprojects in Egypt, for international investors who would like to engage in the megaprojects taking place. The megaprojects taking place are in different sectors, and as Mr. Hussein kindly mentioned, Egypt wants to leap to develop, we don’t want to crawl; so in parallel, there are megaprojects in transport, in industry, in agriculture and so on.

The Suez Canal Global Conference was followed by a Suez Canal tour, where the attendees could come and engage in debates, discussing the maritime field, and then go on a tour of the Suez Canal to see it in reality.

The function of our conferences was to foster discussions of a variety of issues affecting the Suez Canal and its development, clarify the opportunities for investment, the role of the megaprojects, and how it will serve to boost the traffic handled by the canal. The Conference aimed to help develop a Suez Canal Zone area, transforming it into a world-class global logistic hub and industrial processing center to serve the global market.

The importance and invention of the Suez Canal: The Suez Canal is considered to be shortest link between east and west, compared with the Cape of Good Hope. Due to its unique geographic locale, it’s an important international navigational canal, linking the Mediterranean Sea at Port Said and the Red Sea at Suez.

The distinctive location of the Suez Canal makes it of special significance to the world and to Egypt as well. This importance is augmented with the evolution of maritime transport and world trade. Maritime transport is the cheapest means of transport. More than 80% of the world trade volume via waterways, seaborne. The canal route achieves savings in distance between the ports north and south of the canal, and that is converted into other savings for the shipping industries. These savings are reflected in saving time and saving money. Fuel consumption and operations costs are markedly reduced for vessels that transit the Suez Canal. It’s the longest canal in the world without locks, having a high level of safety and security measures, compared to other, alternative routes. Transit navigation there goes on day and night.

The Suez Canal, as I mentioned, accommodates the biggest shipping fleets now. Creating a new canal parallel to the existing one, has maximized benefits from the present canal, and its bypass, doubling the longest possible parts of the waterway, facilitates traffic in the two directions, and minimizing the waiting time for transiting ships. This certainly reduces the time needed for the trip from one end of the canal to the other, and increase the numerical capacity of the waterway, In anticipation of the expected growth in world trade.

The project goes hand in hand with the Suez Canal area development project. The two projects will add to the importance of the Suez Canal and will make it the route of choice for shipowners the world over, putting any alternative routes out of competition—hopefully. The Suez Canal Area Development Project is now a preferential market, because of the bilateral and multilateral agreements that Egypt benefits from, with Africa, with the Middle East, with Europe, and with the U.S.A., through the case agreements, for example; and then extending the operation of this law to the Suez Canal region is an important step towards transforming the Suez Canal to a global trade hub and world trade gateway.

The New Silk Road is an enormous Chinese project, which has gone global. It is composed of land routes, known as the Silk Road Economic Belt, and sea routes known as the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road, and both pass, actually, through the Suez Canal. It goes to Nairobi, Kenya and then afterwards to the Suez Canal. Together they make up the One Belt, One Road, creating a link among the three continents. Egypt has taken steps forwards towards the New Silk Road global vision: The New Silk Road will boost trade, productivity, investment, and cultural exchange, of course.

The 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road crosses the Indian Ocean, and then it goes through the Suez Canal. The Suez Canal Corridor Area Project is a megaproject in Egypt that has been launched by President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. The project’s aim is to increase the role of the Suez Canal region in international trading, and to develop the three canal cities located around it. The project involves building a new city, Ismailia, and fish farms, industrial zones, technology valleys, seven new tunnels—many, many, many megaprojects that Dr. Saad Elgioshy, former Egyptian transport minister mentioned before.

Building on that, the project will transform the canal cities into important trading centers globally. The purpose of this project is to make the region a global industrial center and a logistics services and maritime transport hub, making the Suez Canal a world trade gateway between east and west.

A number of key priorities are identified, including the Port Said port, which aims to develop all of the ports, logistics services, maritime activities and an industrial cluster on the eastern side of the canal. In addition, there are port expansion projects— expansion of Port Said West Port, Ras Sadr Port, and many other ports.

And then there’s Ismailia Technology Valley, establishing high-tech projects in the fields of electronics, communications, IT, biotechnology, medical components, and pharma-technology.

And then northwest of the Gulf of Suez, the project comprises a large industrial zone in close proximity to Ras Sadr Port covering 200 km, including industrial parks and many previously mentioned megaprojects.

Investment opportunities. And this is why I’m here: Egypt is has many opportunities for investment in different ways, with the government, or with the private sector. As previously mentioned by former Egyptian Minister Dr. Saad, Egypt is offering for the first time opportunities for development and investment in the long-term plan, to transform Egypt 2013 to a leading country in the region, a major global trading hub, and place it as a landmark on the global investment map as one of the most promising and attractive countries for investment in logistics and transport sectors. Many of its future multi-billion-dollar national projects rank it third in the Middle East and Africa region, in terms of the volume of investment availability. Egypt will also take offers for global and domestic investment in existing and prospective projects starting soon in various sectors within the medium-term plan until 2020, with investment exceeding 300 billion Egyptian pounds.

One of the most important topics of the conference was to discuss the investment opportunities in the New Silk Road, to enable Egypt to link between the continents of Asia, Europe, and Africa, to create new opportunities for countries with development wishes. Egypt has taken steps forward towards a global vision and has already signed contracts with the Chinese government for cooperation on Egyptian railway projects, because the New Silk Road promotes trade, productivity, investment, and cultural exchange.

TEDA, which is the Chinese-Suez Economic and Trade Cooperation Zone based in the Suez Canal Economic Zone, is a fine example of how the Chinese are engaged in Egypt, and is actually considered to be one of the best overseas economic and trade cooperation zones of China. It has established a good overseas development platform for Chinese enterprises, going global with the aim of creating an international capacity cooperation model of how the overseas economic and trade cooperation zones can be “win-win” situations.

Any manufacturer based in the Suez Canal Economic Zone has so many facilities and incentives to benefit from. For example now, Egypt is making many reforms, such as the new investment law, with “one-stop shop”— better licensing procedures, faster, you don’t have to go through government bureaucracy any more to get licensing. Also there is the floatation of the Egyptian currency, so now there’s no black market—there’s one currency rate. There are bilateral agreements and the multilateral agreements, as I mentioned before, and many industrial areas and free zones available.

There’s a lot of legislative reform and social reform going on as well in Egypt.

Now, I would like to talk about our upcoming events in the transport sector: for whoever is interested in participating and learning more about the megaprojects that are taking place there, and how Egypt is trying to connect the three continents. We are having one on April 16-17: It’s called the 2030 Megaprojects and it’s about means of transport in Egypt.

In tandem with the conference, there will be two exhibitions: Pharos, the International Exhibition of Maritime Transport Logistics and Shipping; and the Middle East and Africa Rail Show, the International Exhibition for Railway Systems Underground Metro and Mass Transportation. The conference and two exhibitions are being organized by our company. The conference with its two international exhibitions will be a very important event for investors, developers, professionals, and stakeholders as the Egyptian Ministry of Transport will present, for the first time, a comprehensive vision of its entire plan for megaprojects in inter-modal and multimodal transportation connecting Egypt locally and internationally, based on Egypt’s strategic location, linking Africa, Europe, and Asia, and the Middle East, of course, all in accordance with the strategy of sustainable development, the vision Egypt 2030.

The conference will be a global gathering for international experts from the east and west, with the support of many international organizations, associations, financial authorities, and government entities around the world.

Egypt now is trying to develop its rail system, as we said. Years of underdevelopment, and now, all of a sudden, there is a boost in all of the transport sectors. We’re trying to have an efficient railway system that connects Egypt internally, supported by good, proper service for truck fleets, and increasing river transport services, and development in all of the ports and the logistics centers. So Egypt will have a complete, new network, which is safe, reduces cost, and is efficient. That will enable Egypt to be able to connect internationally. Egypt-based manufacturers in the new industrial areas can actually reduce the cost of transfer and the time of products to the three different continents.

Egypt is trying to brand itself and position itself to be a world trade hub. The objective of Pharos is to emphasize the role of the private sector and investment in maritime transport and logistics, multimodal transport and logistics centers in the Arab region in Africa, and the role of dryland and river ports and logistics centers in supporting and developing the economy, elaborating the role and use of information technology, and infrastructure in the maritime transport sector, and intensifying the role of green ports and its impact on the environment.

Following Pharos, we will have the Middle East and Africa Exhibition for Infrastructure, underground roads, bridges, transportation. And in cooperation with the Schiller Institute, we will have the EWTH, Egypt World Trade Hub East and West Connectivity conference, proposed for July. That conference will focus on Egypt being a good and desirable place for world trade connectivity, and not only between East and West, but also between the northern and southern regions of Africa.

Egypt World Trade Hub is connecting east and west is proposed to take place in July. It will discuss development investment opportunities in Egypt’s infrastructure, railways, roads, underground bridges, tunnels in land transport, ports, logistics centers, maritime and shipping services, all transforming Egypt into a major world-class trade hub, and placing it on the map of one of the top potential investment countries in the logistics and transport sectors. Due to its strategic location, Egypt aims to connect the Middle East and Africa, Europe, and Asia, to become a prominent leader in the new era. The conference will discuss the Marshall Plan of intermodal and multimodal connectivity of Egypt to the three continents.

The Egypt World Trade Hub Conference will discuss ways of connecting and increasing global trade, examining latest trends in global trade with an outlook on alternative routes, and discussing the importance of Egypt’s strategic location that connects the three continents. Panel discussions will cover Egypt’s local and foreign investment opportunities in Egyptian industrial areas, free trade zones, and all of the Egyptian transport sectors that are witnessing major expansion and development, creating a wider vista of commerce for Africa, Europe, and Asia.

Inviting investors and developers to relocate to Egypt to benefit from the many incentives and facilities, Egypt is now offering and benefiting from the reduction in cargo transport costs and transfer time, by the parallel way dredging megaproject of the Suez Canal. Egypt is pursuing existing means that encourage export to east and west, and the whole region, acting as a great big hub for logistics and world trade.

China and Egypt agreed to cooperate on the New Silk Road and signed a five-year agreement to that end, calling for redoubled efforts to develop the ChinaEgypt Suez Economic and Trade Cooperation Zone. Egypt has taken steps toward a global vision, and has already signed agreements and contracts with the Chinese government. [applause]
