Biden's "Infrastructure" Bill Is No "New Deal"

William Gropper's "Construction of a Dam" (1939). The public mural was commissioned by the federal government as part of FDR's New Deal.  

by: Harley Schlanger
Oct. 22 -- Since Bill Clinton's election as President in 1992, he and his four immediate successors all campaigned on the need to upgrade and modernize American infrastructure, and each one made a show of trying to pass a bill to do it. Yet a quick overview of the dilapidated state of infrastructure in the U.S. today makes it painfully obvious that each failed to reverse the ongoing decline of the basic platforms of infrastructure serving the economy. Worse, the collapse in most areas has been proceeding at an accelerating rate.

MI6 Lying Hitman Resurfaces as COP26 Swirls Down the Drain

Vladimir Putin has been outspoken about the idiocy inherent in the "climate change" policies being pushed for the upcoming COP26 summit, which he will not attend.  Not surprisingly, Christopher Steele, who fabricated the dossier at the heart of Russiagate, re-emerged on ABC-News, regurgitating his discredited dossier, which falsely implicated Putin and Donald Trump in collusion to rig the 2016 election.  Also not surprisingly, the same war hawks who embraced Steele's lies, have delivered emotional eulogies praising Colin Powell, who used a lying dossier -- compiled in part by Steele's former boss, MI6 head Sir Richard Dearlove -- in a speech he delivered to the U.N. in 2003, which was credited with rallying support for the invasion of Iraq.

Behind the Attempted Murder of Lyndon LaRouche on October 6, 1986, Was his Exposure of Schachtian Fascism 

By Harley Schlanger

[This is an edited transcript of a presentation by LaRouche spokesman Harley Schlanger at The LaRouche Organization's Manhattan Project event, on October 9, 2021.]

HARLEY SCHLANGER:  We are in the midst of a dizzying array of events, which is enough to make the heads of even sober people spin. We have a systemic breakdown, there’s no other way to look at it. You can try to look at different sectors and what’s happening here and there, but if you take it in its totality...we’re in what Lyndon LaRouche described as a systemic breakdown.

Multipolar Cooperation, Or Unipolar Push for More Wars and Austerity: You Choose!

While the mainstream media is focused on censoring real news, and increasing polarization around hot-button issues, there are significant strategic developments occurring: 
---Meetings of Afghanistan's neighbors to help build an economy, to prevent a dissolution into civil war, starvation and drug production;
---China's development of a hypersonic, low-orbit glide vehicle, which caught western intelligence by surprise;
---a new report on how wild liquidity pumping by central banks is behind accelerating inflation, and how it benefits 1.1% of the population;
---Putin blaming Europe's leaders for causing energy shortages and soaring prices, on the eve of the next climate "summit", COP26.

No Time for Moping, The Future Is Ours If We Move Now!

All the symptoms of a systemic economic breakdown -- shortages, inflationary prices, the failure of institutions to address the explicit dangers, while pushing for a global central banker's Green dictatorship -- are signs of the WEAKNESS of the Davos billionaires who think they are the Kings of the Universe.  In their frantic pursuit of their utopia, with its drastic reduction of human population, they have planted the seeds of their own defeat.  What's needed to defeat them is a strategy.  Join with the Schiller Institute to rally the millions of those suffering from the policies of the establishment, to put them out of business!

Do the War Hawks in the U.S. Really Want a War with China?

by: Harley Schlanger
On September 9, the White House reported that President Joe Biden and China's President Xi Jinping held a lengthy, substantive phone conversation.  The U.S. initiated the call, after months of no contact between the two leaders, a period of time in which tensions escalated significantly, especially around Taiwan and the South China Sea.  
The White House described the interaction with Xi as a "broad, strategic discussion", and the Chinese said the call ended with a pledge to keep up "in-depth communication between the leaders of China and the U.S."  Biden said that he wants no "new Cold War", and he sent National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan to hold a follow-up meeting with China's top diplomat, Yang Jiechi, in Zurich on October 6.  Both sides confirmed there is a plan in the works to convene a virtual Biden-Xi summit before the end of the year. 
Of note was a comment by Biden the day before the Sullivan-Yang meeting, that the U.S. will "abide by the Taiwan agreement", which was interpreted to mean the "One-China policy", which the U.S. has supported since diplomatic relations were restored in 1979.  Under this and subsequent agreements, the U.S. acknowledges that Taiwan is part of China, and has had no troops permanently stationed on the island since then.

Friday Questions: How Insane Is the Concept of Transitory Inflation?

What is the significance of the debate as to whether inflation is "transitory"?  It is an academic ruse, to avoid discussing the real cause, the hyperinflationary liquidity pumping to pave the way for the Great Reset?
Why is China supporting COP26?  Its actions, including increased electricity production from burning coal, shows it is not complying with COP26 demands.

Mobilize Now to Defeat the Green New Deal

Mark Carney, Climate Change Tsar for the U.N., and former Director of the Bank of England, laid out in an Oct. 12 interview what the Green New Deal is.  He said it will require between $100 and $150 TRILLION to be spent over 30 years in new "green" technology.  To do this, he said, requires a change in financial "plumbing".  He is demanding a "Reset" that will give private banks and financial institutions control over the credit policies of nations; further, the move in this direction is already driving up energy prices, by cutting credit to producers, and pouring liquidity into speculators.  As stated in the {Economist}, the mouthpiece for the City of London, "Get used to it."  But Carney admitted there is resistance, citing China, Indonesia and South Africa as three who will fight it.  Join us to defeat this insane project of the globalist banksters.

The Globalist's World Order Is Collapsing: That's Why They Are So Dangerous!

While the Great Reset/Green New Deal is poised for an inglorious collapse, there is a different "reset" underway, based on Eurasian integration.  While this has been at the center of nightmares among the imperial geopoliticians tied to the City of London, and the speculative swindlers of Wall Street, for more than a century, there is no reason why the citizens of the U.S. and Europe should fear it.  Instead, it represents an opportunity for the "West" -- should we choose to give up wars, austerity and the central banker's dictatorship -- to participate in projects which would provide great benefits for U.S. producers, and fuel an industrial, agricultural and trade bonanza.  Download your copy of "The Coming U.S. Economic Miracle on the New Silk Road", and join our mobilization to implement it.  Your participation will make the globalists most unhappy!
