This is the Editorial in the current issue of EIR, on the dramatic developments in regard to the appointments to the Obama Cabinet - the absence of the Soros crowd, and the presence of several representatives of the Clinton faction. This gives LaRouche a voice -- which he intends to use. LaRouche has just returned from India (more on that later), and will be engaged in further intense diplomacy in preparation for the new administration's first crucial days. Mike
Who Will Shape the Obama Presidency?
There is more than a little touch of irony in the
current situation around the incoming Obama Administration.
On the one hand, we have a President-
elect who was backed by the British and their
lead agent George Soros, and has shown virtually
no understanding of the current existential strategic
and economic crisis which the world faces. On
the other hand, that same President-elect has appointed
a cabinet in which, to their obvious chagrin,
Soros interests have no predominance.
Rather, a good section of Obama’s appointments
hails from a grouping associated with the
Clintons. By this very fact, it is obvious that the
institution of the Presidency—which supercedes
and shapes the term of any particular President—
is pushing back against the British influence. The
battle for the control of the Presidency is on.
Reality is on the side of the Clinton grouping,
which has shown tendencies toward a Franklin
Roosevelt perspective. The overwhelming “issue”
facing the incoming Administration is the breakdown
of the world financial system, and the physical
economy—a situation for which nothing but
the bankruptcy reorganization proposals of
Lyndon LaRouche, in the tradition of FDR, represent
a solution. Obama will be pushed in that direction,
and the broad popular base for such measures
is readily available. Should the relevant
members of the institution of the Presidency show
sufficient courage, the new President could be
moved in the right direction.
The “deadline,” so to speak, to address the
breakdown crisis with LaRouche’s ideas, is January
2009, or February at the latest.
But, don’t count on the Soros crowd being inactive.
Indeed, Soros and his British backers are
moving aggressively at this very moment, to try
to set up the crises which they hope will define the
agenda for the incoming Administration, and put
them in a commanding policy position.
One element of this British-Soros offensive is
the legalization of narcotic drugs, a top priority of
the Nazi collaborator. Soros is pouring billions
into orchestrating a propaganda campaign in
favor of this policy—from setting up the Latin
American Commission on Drugs and Democracy,
to promoting legalization in the nation’s press.
Even more devastating, are the set-ups being
prepared for Obama in Africa. This “Africa bomb”
is being orchestrated by Sir Mark Malloch-Brown
of the British Foreign Office, in collaboration
with his de facto puppet, Soros, and elements of
the Cheney-Bush Administration. If successful,
they will lay at the doorstep of the new Administration,
genocidal conflicts in Zimbabwe, the
Democratic Republic of Congo, and Somalia,
with the pre-set option of an imperial response.
The pretext for these crises has been created
by the joint actions of the Bush Administration
with the British Blair and Brown governments,
which, over recent years, have facilitated the outbreak
of the current humanitarian disasters. The
case of Zimbabwe is particularly egregious, as it
has been the imposition of British (and IMF) economic
policy which has led to the horrors now afflicting
the populations—and for which the British
blame the government.
There is no time to spare in moving to shut
down this Soros/British gameplan. A glaring spotlight
has to be shined on Soros, his Nazi past and
present, to keep him and his flaks far away from
the new Administration, at the same time that an
escalating effort is made to promote LaRouche-
FDR policies for survival. It’s time to take back
the Presidency for American principles. But be
assured, it’s going to be an all-out war.
