Schiller Institute Holds Explosive Press Conference at the National Press Club on the Danger of Nuclear War

On Wednesday, June 12, the Schiller Institute hosted an emergency press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. to bring the imminent danger of nuclear war to an American audience. The event featured four distinguished speakers: Scott Ritter, former U.N. weapons inspector and U.S. Marine intelligence office; Col. (ret.) Richard H. Black, former head of the U.S. Army’s Criminal Law Division at the Pentagon and a former Virginia State Senator; Helga Zepp-LaRouche, founder of the Schiller Institute; and Col. (ret.) Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to United States Secretary of State Colin Powell.

The in-person gathering at the National Press Club was joined by dozens of journalists participating by Zoom from around the world, with simultaneous interpretation provided in Spanish, German and French. In addition, close to 2,000 people participated on a live Schiller Institute feed, with others joining via other electronic venues. Within 24 hours, over 30,000 had viewed the event.

The press conference took place in an exceptionally timely way, as tensions between the United States and Russia have skyrocketed over the recent weeks, prompting some in Russia to discuss the potential of changing their nuclear doctrine, which currently rules out a first strike, and referring to this as a reverse Cuban Missile Crisis. Worse, there is no semblance of maturity or comprehension of this danger within American or NATO officialdom, nor in the general public, only a seemingly mindless ladder of escalation of further involvement in Ukraine.

The panelists were excellently suited to discuss this topic, as, among others, Scott Ritter and Helga Zepp-LaRouche have been listed as targets by Ukraine’s U.S.-funded Center for Countering Disinformation (CCD) for their role in speaking out publicly against NATO’s pro-war policies. Additionally, Ritter was recently prevented from boarding a plane to attend the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in Russia, based on orders from the State Department, and even had his passport seized. When asked by one participant in the press conference why the U.S. didn’t want Ritter to travel abroad, he replied that this was going to be part of a 40-day peace mission to bring the message of friendship from America to Russia, and that this “scared them to death.”

In his concluding remarks, Ritter emphasized: “Every American needs to wake up every morning with that fear [of nuclear war] in your stomach… I don’t know what you think anybody’s been saying up here, but what I heard is we’re headed towards a nuclear conflict that the United States is going to start. How do we stop it? The first thing is the realization that this threat is real.”

Zepp-LaRouche elaborated on the needed solution: “We are going into the most important and dangerous period probably in all of history.” The World War II generation knew what war was, she stated, but the new generation is shallow-minded, and doesn’t know history. All nations must come together to organize a new international security and development architecture, in much the same way that the 1648 Treaty of Westphalia put an end to the Thirty Years war in Europe. For that, there must be a sense of higher lawfulness, natural law, Zepp-LaRouche concluded, and referenced her “Ten Principles For a New Security and Development Architecture.” “We have to lift humanity to a higher level of morality if we want to survive this great danger.”

Zepp-LaRouche on CGTN World Today Radio

The CGTN radio program {World Today} interviewed Helga Zepp-LaRouche to discuss Germany’s legalization of the possession of personal amounts of marijuana. Zepp-LaRouche spoke to the policy change as a sign of decay of German society. Drug use damages the mind and prevents people from addressing the true crises of the present world. The idea that legalization will dry up the black market is false. Exposing young people to drugs is negative for character formation. And we know that there is a history of the use of drugs by intelligence agencies to control populations — as seen in the devastating Opium Wars against China. The same motives exist today in Germany. The legalization of marijuana in Germany exemplifies a trend in European politics.

The Plan to Change the World for the Better | A Conversation with Helga Zepp-LaRouche

On April 1, the widely viewed Kim Iversen Show broadcast a tour de force interview with Schiller Institute founder and chairwoman, Helga Zepp-LaRouche.  Kim Iversen introduced the show with a broad history of both the profound impact of Lyndon LaRouche and his movement over the past 50 years, and the Washington, D.C. elite’s attempts to crush that movement and its impact. Helga Zepp-LaRouche detailed a method of thinking and of action required to move the world from the current imminent global war to an active Peace of development, highlighting The LaRouche Oasis Plan, and the coming Schiller Institute international on-line conference focused on that proposal.

On March 22, Richard A. Black, the Schiller Institute representative at the UN in New York was interviewed on The Kim Iversen Show, on the Rumble platform. Iversen engaged in an 80 minute dialogue with Black on The Schiller Institute’s proposal for a sweeping new international security and development architecture and on Helga Zepp-LaRouche’s widely circulated “10 Principles” required to achieve such a new paradigm of international relations — as an alternative to the current drive by Global NATO for nuclear war with Russia and China.

“There’s a new article by Gilbert Doctorow who says that in the recent week, there seems to have been a consensus among the Western media that the Ukrainian counteroffensive has failed and there was a lot of speculation about Ukraine tiredness and speculation about how the United States would react to the threatening defeat of Ukraine. Many said that they would just continue after throwing Ukraine under the bus, and continue with the attack against China, not to lose any energy in the debate of who lost Ukraine.

“Today Washington’s Plan B is becoming clearer. And what I see does not look good for world peace and for our chances of surviving this conflict.” He says, “Plan B took the form of the Storm Shadow strike a couple of days ago directly on the General Staff building of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol…”
