New Year Message From Helga Zepp-LaRouche!

At the beginning of 2018, Helga Zepp-LaRouche said the most important goal for 2018 was ending the stranglehold of geopolitics. While we still have much to do, many historic steps have been taken in that direction around the world.

See Helga’s special 2019 New Year message for a review of what we’ve accomplished in 2018, and what’s needed in 2019.


Webcast—Lies About China, Russia & Trump Come from Neo-liberals Who Have Bankrupted Their Own System

With the success China has had in raising the living standard of its population over the last four decades, why is it being subjected to a campaign of such “malicious fabrications” (in Foreign Affairs, ARTE documentary and in the media in general), especially as it is working to help other nations achieve similar results, with its Belt-and Road Initiative? Why the constant attacks on Putin and Russia? And why the escalation by Mueller against Trump, as he has failed to produce any evidence of “collusion”, which is what Russiagate was supposed to be about?

In today’s webcast, Helga Zepp LaRouche calls on viewers to study the works of the great philosophers, including Plato, Cusa, Leibniz, Schiller, Einstein, and her husband Lyndon LaRouche, to develop their capacity to hear their own inner voice, so as to be able to engage in “self-thinking”, so they may answer these questions for themselves.

While the House of Lords is lamenting the prospect of the end of the “special relationship”, Trump took two major steps against the old paradigm, agreeing to work with Mexico in projects of economic development in Central America, and in announcing the end of U.S. military intervention in Syria.

She challenged our viewers to use the holidays ahead to read, and discuss great ideas with family and friends.

 


Webcast—French Mass Strike Decimates Globalists and Climate Change Hoax

French President Emmanuel Macron has capitulated to the Yellow Vests revolt in France—what’s really going on?

The uprising in France is not a series of “protests”—this is the type of phenomenon that Lyndon LaRouche has previously identified as a “mass strike” (referring to the insights Rosa Luxemburg).

As the Schiller Institute has warned for decades, the so-called “climate change” scare is a cover story for a Malthusian policy of radical austerity—a British-globalist plan to reduce living standards, reduce energy consumption, and reduce population.

Now we’re seeing that underlying reality bursting through.

Webcast – The Battle Lines are Clear: New Paradigm, or Economic Chaos and War

We’re happy to bring you this week’s webcast with Helga Zepp-LaRouche.

There is a rebellion in Europe!  From the Yellow Vests, to Brexit, to the political crisis in Germany—mass ferment continues to build against the imploding neo-liberal order.  The exception in Europe is Italy, which is the only stable government fighting against the EU insanity (with Portugal and Spain starting to make some interesting moves as well).

Looking at the global situation, we do have some positive developments coming out of the recent G20 meeting in Argentina.  Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping held critical talks, concluding that the U.S. and China can work together.  Unfortunately the anti-Russia chaos operations did succeed in preventing Trump from meeting with Putin, but Trump is continuing to fight back.  In a recent Tweet, Trump emphasized the need to work with with Xi and Putin to stop the arms race.

In the United States, we see an important development involving the Congress.  46 of the newly-elected Democrats have released a letter saying their intention is to focus on addressing real issues, like health care and infrastructure, and they didn’t focus on the ridiculous charade of calling for Trump’s impeachment.

And we have some new progress with the Belt and Road Initiative, with Portugal now signing on!

Webcast: Ukraine Provocations Staged to Cancel Trump-Putin Summit

In this week’s webcast, Helga Zepp-LaRouche and Harley Schlanger discuss the causes and consequences of Trump’s cancellation of he and Putin’s summit at the upcoming G20 meeting in Argentina. Zepp-LaRouche reiterates Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov’s assessment that the provocation was conducted by the same forces out to destroy the Trump presidency.

Zepp-LaRouche also discusses the so-called “Integrity Initiative” and how the “cluster groups” running anti-Russian propaganda from British embassies must be investigated, as British meddling, with dangerous consequences!

Also discussed is the significance of Chinese diplomatic/economic initiatives and conferences in Europe. Helga has called for surrounding Germany with nations working with China—it is happening, e.g., with Xi in Spain.

Whatever happens at the G20—and don’t expect much of anything from the G20, but the side meetings are important—we must keep our offensive going, for a Four Power agreement leading to a NBW, and LaRouche’s Four Laws.


Webcast: Only Mr. LaRouche’s Program Can Reverse the Economic Breakdown

In this week’s Schiller Institute webcast, Helga Zepp-LaRouche covered the following subjects:

1. Various people are now warning of a coming crash—this confirms the warnings of Lyndon LaRouche, and underscores the need to move from a monetarist focus to an emphasis on physical economic development!  This is not just a “financial” crash, but a physical breakdown that’s already taking lives, just look at the U.S. state of California: record forest fires, a homeless crisis, the spread of “third world” epidemics, etc.  And, across the Atlantic, we have the “yellow jacket” revolt in France.  LaRouche’s 4 Laws economic recovery program must be implemented now.

2. Going against the western media attacks on China, we have a major media outlets now raising a reassessment of China.  The U.S. New York Times and France’s Le Monde are now discussing the success of China’s “different model!”

3. The upcoming G20 summit in Argentina could be incredibly important.  We can have “careful optimism” that President Trump’s meetings with President Xi and President Putin can initiate a global strategic shift, but there must be a mobilization to support Trump’s desire for this (given all the anti-China and anti-Russia hysteria).

4. In the U.S., the Trump administration needs to move forward with the declassification of documents showing that it was the British that interfered in the U.S. 2016 Presidential election.  Americans must again reclaim their republic from the British Empire!

5. We’re organizing a Renaissance!  Real economic change requires a change in culture, back to the classical method, and we saw an excellent demonstration of this with the recent Schiller Institute concert in New York City.

Humanity Is At a Crossroads for a New Paradigm: A Dialogue with Helga Zepp-LaRouche

In order for humanity to do what it needs to do, it should be focused at its highest cognitive capability and inspired by the work of the poet Friedrich Schiller. There’s nobody on the planet that is more capable of getting that across to humanity, and to you, than Helga Zepp-LaRouche. Enjoy this dialogue between Mrs. Zepp-LaRouche and an audience gathered in Manhattan.


Webcast: Missed Opportunity in France, Huge Potential at G20

Helga Zepp-LaRouche discusses the following matters:

How Macron’s vanity prevented an opportunity for a crucial discussion between Trump and Putin taking place, during Nov. 11 Armistice commemoration: Macron put forward a new “European Empire” as opposed to “nationalism”, precisely as the European project is collapsing: Brexit, Italy versus EU.

There is NO threat from China: contrasting the positive developments from the Singapore summits, and the reopening of U.S.-China talks (Kudlow, Ross) with the insane war mongering from Rubio and Congressional neocons.

The Democratic Party, caught between the Obama-Hillary tradition, favor of impeachment and war, and those who wish to do something about the collapse of living standards, etc.— especially now, as the devastating fires in California call for a reconstruction policy above parties.

A final appeal to join the Schiller Institute to address the deep moral crisis confronting mankind, with a new Renaissance, based on cooperation for mutual benefit.


The Schiller Institute’s New Silk Road Dossier in French Presented in Paris

The French edition of the Schiller Institute report “New Silk Roads Becomes the World Land-Bridge Vol II,” was presented on Nov. 6 at a Paris seminar. Among the 100 participants were representatives of 10 embassies from Europe, Africa and Eurasia, Chinese and Russian media, strategic analysts, and African associations particularly interested by the industrialization perspective for their continent.

This dossier will help to counter the negative propaganda about the New Silk Road promoted by many of the national think tanks and media in France, including the French Institute of International Relations (IFRI), which just published a very hostile report. While the French government is open to participating in the Belt and Road Initiative, it is so far only involved in small joint projects in the area of artificial intelligence, and a couple of joint projects in Namibia and Cambodia.

Schiller Institute President Helga Zepp-LaRouche opened the seminar, followed by representatives of the French Schiller Institute who gave brief outlines on the contents. Helga Zepp-LaRouche noted that the Schiller Institute’s dossier, with its development projects for Africa, the Middle East, and the rest of the world, offers the solutions to the major crises of today, including the threat of a new financial crash, the refugee flows, and world peace. In the same vein, the Belt and Road Initiative, based on the principle of win-win cooperation, proposes an alternative to geopolitics, which seeks to impose the interests of one country or group of countries (empire) on others. Zepp-LaRouche drew a parallel between Xi Jinping’s idea of a “shared community of principle for the future of humanity” and the philosophy of Nicholas of Cusa of the “coincidence of opposites”, where humanity is thought of as a “One”, which is of a higher magnitude than the “Many”.

Odile Mojon went through the 40-year historic role of Lyndon and Helga Zepp-LaRouche in the emergence of this Eurasian perspective, going back to the fights of the non-aligned movement in the 70s and the 80s and up to the emergence today of the BRICS group and China's New Silk Road. Karel Vereycken presented the secrets of the Chinese development model, which has nothing to do with British free trade, but much more with centralized long-term planning that regulates the market, such as guided the New Deal in the US and the French planning tradition.

Sebastien Périmony went through the rapid industrialization occurring in Africa as a result of Chinese investments, a situation that is creating panic in France whose market shares plunged from 11% to 5,5% between 2000 and 2017, while the Chinese share rose from 3% in 2001 to 18% last year. Périmony debunked the “debt trap” campaign designed to discredit Chinese initiatives, and concluded by presenting a few large infrastructure projects like the Trans-Sahelian Noukchott-Ndjamena railway, which would give France an excellent opportunity to engage with China in joint African projects.


Schiller Representative Presents Eurasia Canal, Belt and Road to Shipowners in Athens

Nov. 12 – The proposal to build a Eurasia Canal for ships to traverse between the Caspian and Black Seas was presented to the Board of Directors of the Hellenic Shortsea Shipowners Association in Piraeus, Greece, on Nov. 8. The idea was depicted by Dean Andromidas, representative of the Schiller Institute and the EIR Strategic Alert, who spoke for 20 minutes and then fielded questions from board members.

The Eurasia Canal was first proposed by Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev and Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2007. The project calls for a 750-km cement-lined canal across the Manych Depression in the Russian Caucasus. It would have five locks and accommodate ships of the Handymax class of up to 35,000 DWT, thus for the first time introducing ships of this class to the Caspian Sea.

According to studies by the Chinese Sinohydro company, a potential of 120 million tons of cargo could pass through the canal, including hydrocarbons from the Caspian Sea region, which accounts for 6-10% of the world’s oil reserves. It would also carry other bulk cargo, including grain and mineral resources. The container traffic from China could amount to as much as 24-30 million tons. This compares with the 101 km Volga-Don Canal, which has a capacity of only 15 million tons, accommodating ships no larger than 5,000 DWT.

By opening up all of Central Asia to maritime shipping, the Eurasia Canal would create a new economic development corridor stretching from the port of Lianyungang in China on the Yellow Sea, through Urumqi in China’s westernmost Xinjiang province, to the port of Aktau on the Caspian in Kazakhstan, through to the Black Sea and into the Aegean Sea, right on Greece’s maritime doorstep. This is a region comprising more than 11 countries and more than 1 billion people. The canal would be an important contribution to the ongoing Belt and Road Initiative composed of the Economic Silk Road Belt and Maritime New Silk Road integrating Eurasia and Africa.

Questions posed by the participants demonstrated a lively interest in the project. Many of them, who were already active in the shipping sector on the Caspian and also the Danube, quickly grasped the potential for such a channel. While one might have expected concerns about the costs of such a project, none were raised. One participant said, the real issue is the will among the concerned nations to build the project. As for financing, the participant pointed to China and how it is able to mobilize financing for major projects after it had made the decision to go ahead.
