In reviewing developments of the last week, from the riots in the U.S. following the murder of George Floyd, to the escalation against Russia and China, as well as the ongoing coup effort against U.S. President Trump, Helga Zepp LaRouche repeatedly returned to prophetic comments made by her husband, the late Lyndon LaRouche. She began by reminding viewers that he commented at the time of Donald Trump’s election in 2016, that this was not a “U.S. event, but one of strategic significance,” associated with the breakdown of the old paradigm. Trump’s efforts to achieve cooperative relations with Russia and China drew a continuous assault against him by those who are escalating the drive for war today, from Ian Brzezinski and NATO General Secretary Stoltenberg, to the former Defense Secretaries attacking Trump over his handling of the riots, when all of them favor the wars which he is trying to stop.
She made this point in a powerful section, discussing the comment by the former Ambassador to the U.S., Jacques Bacamurwanko, that those who persecuted LaRouche should “Get their knee off Lyndon LaRouche’s neck.” She spoke of this statement in the context of the announcment by the Swedish government that they have solved the murder of Olaf Palme, which had been claimed, at the time, to have been caused by LaRouche. The Swedish government, and NBC News, which pushed this, owe an apology to LaRouche. This was part of the effort to stop LaRouche, who had been leading the fight for a new credit system, to replace the bankrupt financial system. As the bankruptcy of the system is becoming more evident, with the incredible collapse of manufacturing in the U.S. and Europe, we can now change the economic system, as LaRouche had insisted for five decades. This will be the subject of the June 27 online conference of the Schiller Institute.
Another crucial point she developed was how the Greens in Germany have become the war party, at the same time they are pushing their policies which will result in drastic depopulation. She developed such insights to make a subsuming point: one cannot act coherently to combat the injustices in the world today without grasping the “larger picture,” to start from the top, as Lyndon always demanded.
