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.
