Webcast: The Strategic Shift Inherent in Putin’s ‘Sputnik Shock’

Tune in this Friday, March 9, 2018, Noon EST, 6 PM CET!

In a statement issued at the end of last week, Helga Zepp LaRouche addressed what she called a “new Sputnik shock,” delivered by Russia’s President Putin. Zepp LaRouche wrote, “In a trans-Atlantic atmosphere of hysteria against Russia and China that can only be understood as pre-war propaganda, President Putin dropped a bombshell in his annual State of the Union address which has redefined the strategic balance. He announced that Russian forces had acquired weapons based on new physical principles, including a new intercontinental missile capable of moving at 20 times the speed of sound, with excellent maneuverability….These new systems, which include nuclear-propulsion cruise missiles, fast submarine drones and laser weapons, were Russia’s answer to the unilateral termination of the ABM Treaty by the U.S. in 2002, and the launch of the global U.S. missile defense system. Since then, all negotiations have fallen on deaf ears. ‘They did not listen to us. Now they will listen to us!’ Putin emphasized.”

She continued: “The response from the Western media and politicians ranged from attempts to ridicule Putin’s new arsenals as technologically impossible, mere pre-election bluster — to concerns about a new arms race, as if one were not already long in progress, thanks to NATO’s eastward expansion.

“These responses once again reflect the fact that adherents to neo-liberal dogma can only see the world through their geopolitical concave glasses, and they obviously underestimate Russia’s military science capabilities, just as they underestimated the dynamics of China’s New Silk Road for years.”

As Mrs. LaRouche indicates, the strategic situation is moving very rapidly, with real prospects for mutually beneficial relations, if the efforts to define relations in terms of British geopolitical dogma can be cast aside, and replaced by the “win-win” approach of China’s President Xi. One striking example of this potential was the announcement Tuesday by South Korean officials, following talks with their North Korean counterparts, that the North is offering to freeze its nuclear missile programs, and open talks with the United States — a development which, if followed through, demonstrates how the dynamic of the New Paradigm is replacing the confrontational approach of the western unilateralists.

Join Mrs. LaRouche this Thursday for the full implications of the changing global strategic geometry.


Webcast: Why Geopolitics leads to War

Tune in this Thursday, March 1, 2018, Noon EST, 6 PM CET!

If anyone doubts what Helga Zepp LaRouche has been saying about how the failure to replace the Old Paradigm, which is based on geopolitical assumptions, will lead to war, they should look at the most recent insanity produced by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). On February 20, CSIS released their latest report, “Coping with Surprise in Great Power Conflicts.” It warns that the U.S. is threatened with military “surprises” from Russia and China. These include the danger that China might launch pre-emptive cruise missile strikes against Washington and assassinate U.S. leaders, while invading Taiwan, while Russia is preparing to unleash its military to overrun the Baltic states!

While London and U.S. neocons have been making increasingly hysterical allegations about Russia and China, the leaders of those nations have made clear they are focused instead on a moving into a New Paradigm, based on strategic and economic cooperation. This is what the neocon lunatics are actually afraid of, not alleged threats from Russia and China which they themselves have concocted, but that the unstoppable momentum of the Belt-and-Road Initiative is gaining support worldwide, even in Europe. The New Paradigm, which has been presented in great detail by Mrs. LaRouche at conferences and seminars all over the world, has created opportunities for the poorest nations to benefit from the “win-win” policy outlined by China’s President Xi Jinping.

The Chinese published a psychologically insightful response to the CSIS lunacy. In “Global Times”, on February 25, an author said that what really frightens those behind the report is that the “U.S. is frightened by its own Mirror Image”!

Join Helga Zepp LaRouche this Thursday, as she will provide the strategic guidance to bring the Trans-Atlantic world out of its suicidal impulses, and into the collaboration with the other great powers of the world, as President Trump continues to stress is his true intent.


Webcast: ‘Old Paradigm’ Defenders Target China At Munich Security Conference

Tune in this Thursday, February 22, 2018, 12 Noon EST, 6 PM CET!

With momentum building behind China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), with more projects announced each week and more nations joining, the would-be enforcers of the old, collapsing paradigm gathered in Bavaria for the annual Munich Security Conference. With a few notable exceptions, the message from the Western “elites” was one of pure geopolitics, that they must work together to counter the BRI, to prevent China from dividing the West and supplanting the U.S. as the world’s dominant power. It was a repeat of the empty rhetoric of the previous week, when U.S. intelligence officials told the Senate Intelligence Committee that Russia and China are greater threats to the U.S. than terrorism.

Countering this provocative rhetoric in Munich, a statement from Fu Ying, the chairwoman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of China’s National People’s Congress, was circulated in a special edition of the {German Times}. Fu Ying wrote that “China has no intention to export its political system and ideology.”

Her statement continued, “The U.S.-led Western world has been attempting to Westernize all the globe by exporting its own values and models. Those attempts have not only failed to address old problems but have also created new ones.

“China’s diplomatic goals in the new era include promoting the creation of a new type of international relations, with more prominence given to lasting peace, universal security and common prosperity and a call for the building of a community with a shared future of mankind. These are not only our expectations for the world’s future, but also a necessity for our domestic development.”

The comments from Madame Fu highlight the fundamental difference between the zero-sum game of Western financial interests, and the “win-win” philosophy underlying the BRI. What can be done to bring Western governments to join the New Paradigm? Helga Zepp-LaRouche will address that, and more, in this week’s webcast.


Webcast: Growing Neo-Con Hysteria over China Offers Proof that the Silk Road Spirit is Unstoppable

Tune in on Thursday, February 15, 2018 12 Noon EST, 6 PM CET!

The escalating drumbeat against China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) coming from Trans-Atlantic geopolitical institutions and their political puppets, such as U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, is a testament to the growing influence of Xi Jinping’s “win-win” diplomacy. What Helga Zepp-LaRouche first identified as a “New Paradigm” has gained adherents worldwide, as the “New Silk Road Spirit” is contagious. Nations in Africa, Asia and South and Central America, which have been looted under IMF and World Bank austerity demands, are turning to the BRI, which is demonstrating that real economic progress is possible. The BRI process offers hope that poverty can be eliminated worldwide, as it has been dramatically reduced in China.

Instead of celebrating this process, or joining it, the Trans-Atlantic elites are up to their old tricks, in a desperate effort to prevent the New Paradigm from succeeding. Their old paradigm, of regime change and wars, of deploying terror operations, of free trade deals combined with austerity that produce murderous economic devastation, continues, even as the basis for their survival has been severely weakened.

In the U.S., the regime change operation against President Trump stands exposed as a made-in-London coup attempt. New revelations coming from Senators Grassley and Graham are expected to show how deeply involved Obama administration officials — including Obama himself — were, in concocting the “Russiagate” fraud story. We are closer than ever to breaking this operation, which would free the President from the constraints imposed on him, to pursue the goals he campaigned for.

These developments, and more, will be the subject of Helga Zepp-LaRouche’s webcast this Thursday.


Webcast: With the Regime Change Coup Exposed, NOW is the Time to Crush the Coup Plotters and Consolidate the New Paradigm

Tune in this Thursday, February 8, 2018, Noon EDT, 6 PM CET!

The release last Friday of the four-page memo, produced by the chair of the House Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, Representative Devin Nunes, which details FBI corruption in the “Russiagate” fiasco, and the subsequent release of an eight-page memo by Senator Grassley, have evoked howls of rage and despair from those out to remove President Trump. As the authors of the memos have stated, there will be more to come. Former NSA technical director and whistleblower Bill Binney, who was himself a target of FBI persecution, said this has “opened a crack” through which the “corruption of the secret government” is now exposed.

The deeper issue posed by these developments is not just stopping the efforts of the anti-Trumpers to overturn the result of the 2016 presidential election. Putting an end to the disruption caused by the ongoing regime change operation will free Trump to fulfill the pledges he made during his campaign, and in his first months in office. These include, most significantly, ending U.S. involvement in the endless wars launched by Bush and Obama, through strategic cooperation with Russia; bringing the United States into the New Paradigm, in full cooperation with China’s New Silk Road; and ending the speculative swindles of Wall Street and the City of London, which have created an unsustainable debt and stock market bubble, which may be on the verge of popping NOW.

The Schiller Institute has led the campaign to bring the Trans-Atlantic nations into the New Paradigm. In the last months, the New Silk Road spirit has spread throughout Africa, Asia, Eurasia (including eastern and southern Europe) and South America, and is creating opportunities to bring peace to regions, such as the Korean Peninsula and the Middle East, which have been targeted for super-power conflict by the neo-cons, with their geopolitical insanity. Join us this Thursday, for the weekly Schiller Institute webcast, as Helga Zepp LaRouche, who has personally spearheaded the battle for the New Paradigm, will provide a strategic update, and what must be done to defeat the unilateralists and their drive for new wars.

 


Webcast: Global Policy Increasingly Shaped by New Silk Road – Time for U.S. to Join!

Tune in this Thursday, February 1, 2018, Noon EST, 6 PM CET!

The discussion at this year’s just-concluded Davos conference was shaped by the keynote address given last year, by China’s President Xi Jinping, and by the continuing development of the Belt-and-Road Initiative (BRI). The presentation this year, by Chinese economic adviser Liu He, provided a rallying point for those attending who were not fooled by the cheerleading of the global stock market bubble, as he made clear that the model of China’s economic development, which has dramatically reduced poverty there, can be applied to accomplish that objective worldwide.

Much of the world is not just listening, but joining with China. It is now time for the United States to fully engage in the BRI.

President Trump has made improving relations with Russia and China a priority of his first year in office, despite desperate measures taken by the imperial oligarchy and the use of geopolitical machinations to stop him. As long as geopolitics defines the Trans-Atlantic response to China’s initiative, the danger of war increases. What is the perspective now, following Trump’s January 30 State of the Union address? What must be done to bring the U.S., and European nations, into the BRI? And what can be done to expand the mobilization, led by forces associated with the Schiller Institute, to defeat the coup being run against Trump?

These will be among the topics addressed by Helga Zepp LaRouche this Thursday.


Webcast: Crazed Neo-Cons Put War on the Agenda: Russiagate Coup Effort Must Be Defeated

As the evidence needed to shut down the London-Obama “Russiagate” regime change coup against President Trump is being pulled together and hopefully released to the public, the so-called neo-conservatives within and outside the administration are escalating war provocations against Russia and China. Trump’s stated intent continues to be to forge good, cooperative relations with Russia and China; those trying to remove him are driven by a desperate understanding that, if Trump succeeds in bringing the U.S. into collaboration with Russia and China, their old paradigm, based on geopolitical manipulation, and the wars which are an essential part of it, will be swept away, and the empire of worthless financial instruments and debt will be collapsed on their heads.

Russian and Chinese leaders have issued clear warnings of the dangers implicit in the insane “national security strategy” being pushed by the neo-cons, even while continuing to seek cooperative engagement with the United States, to address problems with North Korea, the Near East and Ukraine. The fantastic progress demonstrated by China’s fight to eradicate poverty at home, and the potential for real economic development of the world’s less-developed nations, through its global initiative, the New Silk Road, are rallying nations from Africa, South America, Asia and Europe into an unstoppable alliance.

The next days offer opportunities for building further momentum for the New Paradigm, from Trump’s appearance in the Swiss Alps at Davos, and in his January 30 State of the Union address, as well as in the meeting on Syrian reconstruction at Sochi. This is not the time to be a passive spectator, when so much is at stake. Join Mrs. LaRouche this Thursday, and become part of the dynamic, inspirational force consolidating the New Paradigm.


Webcast: Time to Shut Down British Imperial Operations!

In an article in {Consortium News} on January 11, Ray McGovern, leader of the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) and a former high-level CIA intelligence analyst, wrote that it is evident to all except those blinded by their hatred for President Trump, that a “soft-coup” is underway, directed by British intelligence and its U.S. allies, to drive him out of office. The purpose of “regime change” in the U.S. is to preserve the geopolitical machinations of its coordinators, even if it means putting the world on a course toward nuclear war. The “missile alert” in Hawaii last week should be a reminder of how perilously close we are to nuclear annihilation.

The Schiller Institute has been joined by leaders of the VIPS in exposing this coup, in several recent public events in New York City. In his article, McGovern points to the importance of “former” MI-6 operative Steele’s fraudulent dossier in running the coup. McGovern calls on Congress to take on the “J. Edgar Hoover-style blackmail on steroids, enabled by electronic surveillance of just about everything and everyone….” As more evidence of FBI corruption is pouring out, he says that “Russiagate is becoming FBI-gate.”

Putting an end to the fraudulent attacks of Russiagate, which target not only Trump, but the leaders and nations of Russia and China, would open the door for full U.S. cooperation with the Belt-and-Road initiative. This would put an end to the era of confrontational imperial geopolitics, which is what China’s President Xi means when he speaks of “win-win” collaboration.

Mrs. Zepp LaRouche will provide a strategic update on the advance of this process, and what is necessary to achieve this desirable result on this Thursday’s webcast.


Webcast: The “Silk Road Spirit” Inspires France’s Macron: Will It Ream Berlin and Brussels?

In opening a three-day visit to China, French President Emmanuel Macron declared that, with the reinvention of the ancient Silk Road, which he called a “treasure of civilization,” China “has accomplished a dream.” As China has lifted 700 million out of poverty, he said, the Chinese can now come to Europe, to help accomplish the same there. Remember, Macron stressed, the Belt-and-Road Initiative (BRI) works both ways. “The ancient Silk Roads were never only Chinese. By definition, these roads can only be shared. If they are roads, they cannot be ‘one way.'”

With these words, Macron is echoing a call made a week earlier by Helga Zepp LaRouche on her weekly webcast, when she called on European governments to become active participants in BRI projects with China, to address the growing levels of poverty in Europe.. Mrs. Zepp LaRouche emphasized that, due to the economic policies of China’s President Xi Jinping, there are now many fewer people living below the poverty level in China than in Europe. She noted today that Macron’s message from China will send shock waves throughout the world, as it represents a reversal of policy. In particular, it puts Berlin and Brussels on notice, as these capitals remain stubbornly, and foolishly, resistant to the potential for cooperation with China’s “win-win” policy, which is overturning the imperial doctrine of geopolitics.

As the battle intensifies in the United States to defeat the neocons, with their hysterical and dangerous nostalgia for a disappearing unipolar world defined by geopolitical confrontation, Macron’s promotion of the “Silk Road Spirit” demonstrates that there is a new dynamic shaping policy in the world. The Schiller Institute, and Mrs. Zepp LaRouche personally, have been the leading advocates for this new paradigm.

For a strategic update on the implications of the transformation underway, join us for this week’s Schiller Institute webcast, featuring Helga Zepp LaRouche.


Webcast: End Geopolitics, Adopt LaRouche’s 4 Laws

 

In a New Year’s greeting, Schiller Institute President Helga Zepp LaRouche concluded a summary of the outstanding issues to be addressed immediately in the New Year by stating that there is “reason for optimism for the coming years, because solutions do exist. Let us just implement them in a decisive way.” Those solutions begin with the global initiative by China, called the Belt-and-Road Initiative, she said, which in the last year has opened to include more than seventy nations.

Now, it is essential for the United States and the nations of Europe to join, as the Trans-Atlantic region is facing a new, larger financial crash, led by the corporate debt bubble which is threatening to blow, unless its economies shift from speculative bubbles to real physical production, especially in cutting-edge infrastructure technologies. The economic advances made by China in recent years demonstrate that this approach works, lifting hundreds of millions out of poverty, and creating a healthy optimism about the future. For the U.S. and Europe, this means it is now time to implement Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Economic Laws, which should serve as the basis for President Trump’s economic initiatives in his State of the Union address. Not surprisingly, those financial oligarchs who created this unresolvable speculative debt bubble are pushing geopolitical confrontations, to prevent the U.S. and Europe from participating in “win-win” cooperation with China and its expanding circle of allies.

During the latter part of last year, the Schiller Institute began the Thursday webcasts to provide its growing number of supporters a weekly update from Mrs. LaRouche, who has played a leading role in bringing the “Silk Road Spirit” to people who are otherwise held hostage by the Fake News media of the West. Join us this Thursday, and every Thursday — let’s make 2018 the year when geopolitical doctrine is rejected forever, and the New Paradigm is realized.
