U.S. Post-war Policy Toward Afghanistan Sets the Stage for More War

The freezing of Afghanistan's national funds held in the N.Y. Federal Reserve Bank, ordered by Treasury Secretary Yellen on August 15, is setting the stage for further chaos in that war-torn country.  You don't have to love the Taliban to demand the unfreezing of those funds -- they belong to the sovereign nation of Afghanistan, and are needed to feed people, provide medicine, purchase fuel, etc.  By withholding those funds, the U.S. and its allies are starving children, exactly as the British colonial administrators did to their colonies.  Is this what the Biden administration intends, when it says the era of endless wars is over???

California Recall -- A Terrible Process Nevertheless Delivered An Overwhelming Defeat To Narrow-minded Fanatics

by: Harley Schlanger
Sept. 15 -- On September 14, the voters of California rejected the attempt by Trump supporters and disgruntled libertarians to use the state's "Recall" process to remove Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom from office.  Voters were asked to decide whether they wanted Newsom removed, in which case they could vote "Yes" for recall; or whether he should remain in office, in which case they vote "No".  The full count of mail-in ballots may take another week to ten days, but with more than 70% of the votes counted, nearly 64% voted against the recall.  While the margin may narrow a bit, it is a decisive defeat for those who gathered nearly 1.5 million petition signatures to place the recall on the ballot.

The Issue Facing Humanity: Development Versus Depopulation

As the United Nations General Assembly convened in New York yesterday, the only real issue before the members is that of Development versus Depopulation.  While British PM Boris Johnson was openly pushing depopulation, President Biden made an effort to hide behind rhetoric about "diplomacy" and "no Cold War"; but his actions last week, in formally announcing a new strategic alliance with the Brits and Australia -- against China and Russia -- shows why so many nations no longer trust the U.S.  In contrast, China's Xi called for a new Global Development Initiative, based on multilateralism, and non-interference in other's internal affairs.

Green Policies Will Freeze Europeans This Winter

Rising energy prices, exiting from safe, clean and reliable sources of electricity production -- e.g., clean coal and nuclear -- and deregulation of energy markets, are producing a perfect storm, threatening the lives of many in Europe and the U.S. this winter.  The same confluence of policies, with sanctions added to the mix, is responsible for Malthusian genocide in whole sectors of the developing sector.  Join us to reverse this, to defeat the Fake Science of "man-made climate change" of the Green New Deal, and the deadly neoliberal financial looting of deregulation.  The LaRouche Organization pamphlet, "The Great Leap Backward: LaRouche Crushes the Green New Deal Fraud," is available HERE

Taking on Strategic and Economic Insanity

The world moved deeper into an extinction mode with the announcement last week of a new Australia-UK-US geopolitical security arrangement, and with a series of upcoming conferences focusing on moving toward "nature positive" methods of production, driven by the genocidal lunatics of the Davos World Economic Forum.  The former represents a direct threat to China, the latter to the food supply and production of goods essential for human survival.  Will  enough voices of sanity be heard to counter these absurd conceptions?

The Aukus Deal — Pivot to War

The new "strategic partnership" announced yesterday between the U.S., Britain and Australia represents a reaffirmation of British geopolitics, with the U.S. again providing the muscle to enforce an imperial world order. This is not just about selling nuclear submarines to Australia. Despite claims that this targets no nation, the Chinese know better. That this occurs so soon after the U.S.-NATO withdrawal from Afghanistan lends credence to the charge that, while the decision to leave was right, using it to free up the allies to adopt a "Pivot to Asia" sends the signal to the Chinese that they should be prepared for war.

General Milley Confesses -- Do You Still Doubt There Was a Coup Underway Against Trump?

The book "Peril", authored by Woodward and Costa, raises disturbing questions about the role of U.S. military leadership in sabotaging President Trump's efforts -- and now those of President Biden -- to end the "endless wars."  The same U.S.-British military-intelligence-corporate networks behind the 9/11 terror attacks, and the subsequent coverup, ran the attempted regime change coup called Russiagate, and continue to oppose replacing geopolitical confrontations and wars with peaceful cooperation.  It is now an urgent priority that citizens get behind the demand for a full investigation of the coup plots, and support the shift to a new era based on multilateral efforts to achieve peaceful economic development.

Addressing the War Danger More Urgent Than Ever

The moment of opportunity opened by the end of the war in Afghanistan, for multilateral cooperation for economic development, could close very quickly.  A False Flag event, occurring in the midst of almost daily military encounters by U.S.-NATO forces with Russian and Chinese military forces, could lead to a devastating war, either by miscalculation, or intent!  Dialogue is essential, as Gen. John Hyten, Vice-Chair of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, expressed in a speech two days ago.
We also present a preliminary report on the smashing defeat of the California Recall.  Lyndon LaRouche famously warned, in 2003, that Recall is dangerous, as it is designed to manipulate momentary emotions, to undermine the American Presidential System, and replace it with a parliamentary system.

BEWARE FALSE FLAGS: How the Coming Financial Crisis Is Driving the Danger of War, As Before 9/11

It is still unknown whether the withdrawal of U.S./NATO forces from Afghanistan is the end of the era of endless wars, or a move to a new phase of geopolitical confrontations, directly challenging Russia and China.  The push for continued war comes from the onrushing financial collapse, for the same reason that the wars were launched following the 9/11 attack: wars are used, by the globalist financial and corporate cartels who fund the war hawks, to justify the imposition of emergency measures, including austerity economic policies and the surveillance state.  That is why it is necessary that LaRouche's economic policies, for collaborative mutual economic benefit, represent the only real alternative to chaos.

Who Benefited from 9/11?

The first 9/11 documents declassified as a result of President Biden's order show active involvement of Saudi officials in the events of 9/11.  What must be answered now is 1.) Who in the U.S. government covered up the Saudi role for 20 years?; and 2.) Who benefited from the coverup?  The place to begin to answer these questions is with Lyndon LaRouche's forecast on January 3, 2001, in which he warned that a "Reichstag Fire" event would be used by the Bush administration to impose emergency crisis management policies.
