Thursday Night Fireside Chat—Why Trump Failed and How We Must Win

This week's Fireside Chat featured Mike Billington and Dennis Speed. On March 17, 2017, a transcript of Billington's webcast on "Why the British Hate Trump" was published in EIR. Looking back, it is clear that the British terror arose from the fear that Trump was threatening to promote a number of ideas which the British and their US assets believed had been buried for good when they prosecuted Lyndon LaRouche and his associates. Ending the colonial wars which were being waged on behalf of the Empire; being friends with Russia and with China; ending the green Malthusian policies; hinting even at the American System and Glass-Steagall; these sent the British into conniptions, and into an overdrive coup effort. By the time of the 2020 election, none of Trump's original goals had been achieved, and even the baby step of pulling out of the Paris Accord went nowhere when he capitulated and cancelled his planned science debate featuring Prof. Will Happer against the Greenies.

Deep State? Yes, but he appointed them to his cabinet. His failure was to not exonerate LaRouche, even knowing that the coup attempts were run by those who had persecuted and prosecuted LaRouche. His only pool of qualified cabinet members, those in the LaRouche movement, fought to get him to cooperate with Russia and China, but instead he allowed his cabinet to mobilize for war against them. The LaRouche Organization’s means to succeed where Trump failed are based on the refusal to compromise on the truth, the building of the international forces for a new world economic and political order, and the continued, living ideas of Lyndon LaRouche.

    Trump’s Presidency was one of the most successful in history.
    He forced the enemy out in the open with their desperate gambit to
    defeat Trump and blame China. The fact that Trump will
    learn that he and China were set up by the British replay of
    the deadly “Spanish Flo” of 100 years ago!

    Here was my Chat, submitted at 8:18pm on Friday – Biden & Putin must truthfully agree on how to lessen conflict, and then maybe 1 or 2 other things. Then, under worsening conditions – like hyperinflation, provocations for war, disease + starvation – a much bigger P-5 + India Summit could be arranged, whereby leaders would agree to both damage control & to setting up a New Bretton Woods credit architecture !

    perr 1. Below

    Never say that Trump doesn’t have the U.S. Courts, based on his private winning streak over a 40 year career

    Backround

    Trump who was briefly a Democrat (Marrano) in 2011 has a tried and true business model. Threaten entrenched interests with economic loss, then accept surreptitious payments to make the problem go away.

    If we agree that in essence he is an owned con-man masquerading as a 21st century populist, his agenda was ..

    1. ALLOW COURTS TO ANNUL AN AMERICAN NATIONALISTIC, AND QUITE LAWFUL ANTI-ILLEGAL CLEANSING POLICY, IN FAVOR OF GENERAL ECONOMIC DECLINE IN THE FORM OF INTERNATIONALISM AND HUMAN RIGHTS.

    2. CREATE DEADLY RIVALRIES WITH #1 TRADING PARTNER CHINA AND #1 MILITARY SPACE PARTNER RUSSIA AS A SCARE TACTIC TO INCREASE THE WORLD’S MILITARY BUDGETS.

    3. FEINT AN ANTI CAPITALISM WAR WITH FOREIGN LOW COST SUPPLIERS, TO COVER UP ENDEMIC UNDEREMPLOYMENT HERE AT HOME, THOUGH OUTSOURCONG HAS BEEN A BI-PARTISAN POLICY SINCE THE 1980S.

    4. ALLOW INTERNATIONALISTS TO FLIRT WITH BREAKING UP THE UNION BY WITHHOLDING TRANSFER PAYMENTS TOO STATES.

    Trump was successful in one essential area.
    1) Halting demonization of Socialism with direct payments to Citizens

    Conclusion

    The World remains the same as a result of Laziness, Petrification of a 20th Century world by those remaining/preying on our Dimension.

    Trump tended to be an economic nationalist, but was cacophonied out of this by staged incidents like Charlottesville in 2017. There is still time to establish agreements for the Common Good of peoples, and build the concordance needed to set up a New Bretton Woods credit architecture !
