Time to listen to LaRouche
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.
