Unity Demands an End to the Two Party System and U.S.-China-Russia CooperationBy Mike Billington
Tulsi Gabbard, who did not run to keep her seat in the Congress last November, is nonetheless continuing her very useful role as a true nonpartisan campaigner. In fact, it can be said that she is an example of what Lyndon LaRouche fought for—the end of the two-party system. Today she issued a tweet: “It’s not surprising that the Senate approved Blinken as Secretary of State. After all, he is a warmonger as are most senators in both parties.” True indeed.
Ann Wright, a veteran Army officer and a U.S. diplomat who resigned in 2003 in protest to the Bush war on Iraq, has also called for Americans of all political stripes to join in calling on President Joe Biden to continue President Donald Trump’s suspension of U.S.-South Korean military exercises. “These military exercises have been suspended since 2018, but Gen. Robert B. Abrams, commander of U.S. Forces in Korea, has renewed the call for the full resumption of the joint war drills,” Wright wrote in a Truthout column Jan. 27 “and Biden’s secretary of state nominee Antony Blinken has said suspending them was a mistake. Rather than acknowledge how these joint military exercises have proven to raise tensions and provoke actions by North Korea, Blinken has criticized the suspension of the exercises as an appeasement of North Korea. And despite the failure of the Trump administration’s”maximum pressure" campaign against North Korea…, Blinken insists more pressure is what’s needed to achieve North Korea’s denuclearization." Her article was reprinted today in Consortium News.
Today the “bipartsan” U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC), which has always been a rabid anti-China voice from the Congress, issued its first report under President Biden, openly supporting the absurd claim made by Mike Pompeo (his final “scorched-earth” declaration before leaving office) that China is guilty of “genocide” in Xinjiang. Whereas anyone who has visited Xinjiang knows that it is now a zone of peace and rapid development, without any of the terrorist assaults nor of the abject poverty of previous decades, the spokesperson for the USCC asserted that China is “flatly denying the genocide the U.S. Department of State and many experts have accused it of carrying out against the Uygurs as well as lying about forced labour, detention and torture, and the destruction of religious sites, all of which have been well-documented.” “Well-documented” in the normal manner of the Washington Post and New York Times—i.e., no documentation whatsoever.
What good is a two-party system when both parties are subservient to the military-industrial complex, and both parties follow the insane monetarist policies dictated by the City of London and Wall Street? We now have the “Green New Deal” adopted by the Wall Street puppet Joe Biden, a clearly defined policy to turn sovereign economic policy over to the leading financial institutions, to cut credit to industry and agriculture while printing trillions of dollars (and pounds and euros) to bail out those same financial institutions from their current bankrupt state, while also pumping up a new bubble, this time in the useless and wasteful “green” sector, to counter a non-existent “global warming.” Any doubters of this fact must take the time to read Biden’s “Executive Order on Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad,” certainly written by the same financial institutions to which it provides such unconstitutional power. (See https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/presidential-actions/2021/01/27/executive-order-on-tackling-the-climate-crisis-at-home-and-abroad/ )
The fact that both the left-anarchist “Antifa” and the right-anarchist “Proud Boys” have been easily shown to be led by FBI assets, must be taken seriously by all citizens, both in the U.S. and in Europe, where parallel institutions are also being deployed to break down the power of sovereign states. We hear cries of “unity” from Biden, while his party is pressing the unconstitutional impeachment of the former President and declaring all his 75 million voters “suspect.” Both parties are experiencing fundamental fissures.
It is time to dump what LaRouche called the “two-potty” system. Real unity is required, both within the U.S. and internationally, to address the existential issues facing mankind in this moment of an unprecedented crisis of civilization—the global pandemic; the ongoing famine; a financial bubble many multiples of any previous bubble, which could explode at any moment; the threat of new “regime change” colonial wars under the former Bush and Obama war party; and even the rising danger of thermonuclear war if the fanatics who declare Russia and China to be adversaries rather than partners are to prevail. Both Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin described both the dangers, if the current divisions persist, and the potential for cooperation, if people can rise to the historic task, in their speeches to the World Economic Forum (both virtually ignoring the “Green Finance” theme of that conference).
This movement represents the cultural and political direction required for the required unity.
Both the cultural and the political aspects will be fully addressed in The LaRouche Organization Manhattan Project Meeting “Poetry As a Weapon: How Robert Burns Defeated the British Empire of the Mind” on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. EST. Join us, and bring others, at www.laroucheorganization.com.
