Time to lis­ten to LaRouche

The Calvert Recorder - - Community Forum -

The fol­low­ing was de­liv­ered late in the week of Aug. 21 to staff of Sens. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) and Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), as well as Mi­nor­ity Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md., 5th) to give them a chance to com­ment on the con­tents. All three were un­able or un­will­ing to do so:

An ar­ti­cle in The Na­tion dated Aug. 9 con­cerned a sum­mary of the find­ings of a group called Veteran In­tel­li­gence Pro­fes­sion­als for San­ity (VIPS), founded in 2003. This group wrote a let­ter re­spond­ing to Colin Pow­ell’s re­port to the United Na­tions. They warned Ge­orge W. Bush that a war with Iraq could lead to “un­in­tended con­se­quences” which “are likely to be cat­a­strophic.”

This ar­ti­cle re­ferred to their find­ings that the meta file said to be hacked by the Rus­sians from the Demo­cratic Na­tional Com­mit­tee (DNC) and sent to Wik­iLeaks was in fact an in­side job. It was down­loaded in­ter­nally from the DNC server and doc­tored to look like a Rus­sian hack.

The group mak­ing this claim comes highly cre­den­tialed with mem­bers from the CIA, the NSA, the DIA and var­i­ous other in­tel­li­gence and diplo­matic fields of en­deavor, in­clud­ing a for­mer FBI spe­cial agent. The ar­ti­cle also ref­er­ences two anony­mous sources, one who is be­lieved to be a cur­rent FBI com­puter spe­cial­ist.

If this re­port is true (and at this junc­ture it is the work­ing ex­pla­na­tion of how the meta file got to Wik­iLeaks and the DNC ex­pla­na­tion is a con­spir­acy the­ory), the quid pro quo ref­er­enced so of­ten as to have ex­isted be­tween Rus­sia and the Trump

cam­paign and the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion goes up in smoke.

There should be im­me­di­ate pub­lic con­gres­sional hear­ings to de­ter­mine the ve­rac­ity of the charges lev­eled by VIPS.

If found com­pe­tent, there should be a joint res­o­lu­tion rec­om­mend­ing that the pres­i­dent dis­miss the spe­cial pros­e­cu­tor, as his in­ves­ti­ga­tion would be clearly ir­rel­e­vant, and any con­gres­sional in­quiry sparked by the false re­port of Rus­sian in­ter­fer­ence in our elec­tion should also be shut down.

In ad­di­tion, the House and Se­nate should re­scind the Sanc­tions Bill, which not only harms our best po­ten­tial ally against ISIS, but harms our Euro­pean al­lies as well. The only re­main­ing rea­son for the sanc­tions would be our support for the Neo-Nazis who re­placed the le­git­i­mate govern­ment of Ukraine by force.

Hav­ing ac­com­plished the

above, Congress and “We the Peo­ple” would be freed from the el­e­ments within the na­tional se­cu­rity group (FBI, CIA, NSA, etc.) that have their own agenda, and from the group’s spokesper­sons in the na­tional me­dia.

Con­cur­rent with that ef­fort, it is time to heed the guid­ance of the world-renowned econ­o­mist and statesmen Lyn­don LaRouche and im­ple­ment his Four Laws. In gen­eral, this in­cludes bank­ing re­form an­chored by the re­in­state­ment of FDR’s Glass-Stea­gall law; credit cre­ation for in­fra­struc­ture cre­ation and en­hance­ment, and to foster pro­duc­tiv­ity surges in crit­i­cal in­dus­tries; and im­ple­ment­ing large sci­ence driver projects.

In do­ing so, we could “pur­sue hap­pi­ness” as a na­tion and ful­fill the destiny ap­pre­hended by the found­ing fa­thers.
