Bring in a New Silk Road ‘Infrastructure’ Policy for the New Year
Dec. 26 (EIRNS)—The post-Christmas week started in the U.S. with a bang, when President Donald Trump tweeted very early Tuesday that the 2016 anti-Trump dossier was not only “bogus,” and was not only funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign, but the FBI used “this pile of garbage” to go after the Trump candidacy. Trump’s message was occasioned by a Fox News commentator pointing out that the big scandal is not the lies, it is “weaponizing the intelligence community” to go after a political campaign.
The fat’s in the fire. What is critical to understand is that the pedigree of the whole operation is British. When it comes to election interference, the British did it, from “ex”-MI6 operative Christopher Steele, to his media flunkies, and his sordid U.S. intelligence contacts. They started “Russia-gate,” when the reality is “Britain-gate.” The full British provenance is made clear in the LaRouchePAC special report, “Robert Mueller Is an Amoral Legal Assassin: He Will Do His Job If You Let Him.”
It is long past time to vanquish this menace, and restore the U.S. to its founding identity, of what came to be known as the “American System” for the general welfare. The enemy is simply the “British System”—as seen in its current manifestation as the Wall Street/City of London tyranny, including their deadly geopolitical foreign policy schemes.
Thus, the fat’s in the fire on the economy, as well as on political subversion. This puts the question of the science of political economy foremost, whose applied principles needed for the present time were laid out in 2014 by Lyndon LaRouche in his “Four Laws.” Now they are in circulation, as an action plan, in the LaRouchePAC pamphlet, “LaRouche’s Four Laws & America’s Future on the New Silk Road.”
In 35 days, Trump is to deliver his State of the Union address to Congress and the nation. There is no more lag time or public forbearance left for simply hearing yet again about the virtues of rebuilding America and creating jobs. The action must begin. That is what is expected of Trump, who has pledged his conviction. On Jan. 6-7, Trump is set to meet at Camp David with Congressional leaders, including minimally Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, on an infrastructure program, according to a Christmas Eve report from the White House legislative liaison Marc Short. The LaRouche “Laws” and “New Silk Road” are the only way to go.
Helga Zepp-LaRouche today cautioned that we are coming into a period where we must keep an open mind. There are two options—particularly in the trans-Atlantic. There are those intent on defending the status quo, when that status quo is untenable. But secondly, there are those intent on moving forward toward the Belt and Road Initiative.
You want an “infrastructure” policy? It’s the New Silk Road for the New Year!
Correction: In the Editorial for the Dec. 26 EIR Daily Alert, the date for Lyndon LaRouche’s speech in Rhodes was mistakenly reported as October 1999. The correct date was October 2009.
Editor’s Note: As usual we will skip the EIR Daily Alert issue for Monday, Jan. 1, 2018.
U.S. POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC
Trump Exposes That Tainted FBI Used Bogus Dossier To Go After 2016 Trump Campaign
Dec. 26 (EIRNS)—At dawn this morning, President Donald Trump fired off this tweet:
“WOW, @foxandfriends Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED. And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!”
The 6:30 am tweet was occasioned by a review on Fox News about the funding and unverified nature of the 2016 anti-Trump dossier, commissioned through the Washington, D.C. trash-for-cash firm Fusion GPS, and written by “ex”-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele.
Commentator Buck Sexton, on the Fox News segment said, “What we really want to know is, was the dossier—which you all are quite aware, was a Clinton-funded opposition research document—the basis for weaponizing the intelligence community against a political campaign as it was happening. This would be the greatest scandal certainly of my lifetime.”
Adding to the heat, Rep. Francis Rooney (R-FL) charged in an interview with MSNBC today, that “the DOJ and the FBI, whether you want to call it ‘deep state’ or what, are kind of off the rails….  Look at what that Strzok guy was texting. What that Ohr guy with the dossier Clinton oppo research people, and then this McCabe guy’s wife takes $600,000 from Clinton related sources while she’s running for state senator?” These people are undermining my confidence—“that those agencies don’t respect the Constitution and will put the ends before the means….”
Interviewer Hallie Jackson shot back that comments like this have some people saying that the Republicans are out to discredit the DOJ and the Russia investigations. Unfazed, Rooney said no, but, “I would like to see the directors of the agencies purge” themselves of “these people who are kind of the deep state.” The word “purge” seemed to unnerve the MSNBC host.
Virginia State Senator Black Cites New Silk Road as Alternative to U.S. National Security Strategy
Dec. 26 (EIRNS)—In remarks prepared for RT and made available to this news service, Virginia State Sen. Richard Black (R) voices a number of criticisms of the administration’s new National Security Strategy, released Dec. 18, including the document’s unjustified hostility to Iran and placement of blame on China and Russia for conditions of instability along the NATO borders. Senator Black also takes note of the discrepancy between the written document and the more moderate remarks on strategy doctrine delivered by President Donald Trump.
Black states his belief that the document is part of the effort to override the President’s instinct for peace, and to continue the war-hawk policies that “cater to the entrenched foreign policy elites.” The loss of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn cost President Trump an ally who embodied the foreign policy vision expressed in his presidential campaign and who knew how to achieve it, Black states.
Taking pointed issue with the criticism of investment policies of Russia and China, Black argues that “the U.S. would do well to realize that hospitals, highways and infrastructure earn more good will than simply designating nations as bad actors and bombing them into oblivion, as we did to Libya and are helping the Saudis to do in Yemen. The Chinese Silk Road Initiative will have vastly more influence than our efforts to topple Libya, Syria, Egypt, Yemen, and Iran. Hopefully, we will come to understand that economic competition need not be a zero-sum game with winners and losers.”
U.S. Capital Has Closed Down the Natal and Nursery Services at Its Sole Community Hospital
Dec. 26 (EIRNS)—The one community hospital in Washington, D.C. has closed its obstetrics delivery and nursery units, forcing women to seek services at facilities elsewhere, or do-for-self in childbirth. (There are other Washington hospitals, but no others are public hospitals.) The District of Columbia-owned United Medical Center (UMC), closed such services last August, after deficiencies were identified, with a plan to reopen within 90 days, after improvements were made. Instead, earlier this month, the hospital board voted, in a secret ballot, to permanently shut the obstetrics ward. There is now no facility in Southeast Washington, home to many of the poorest in the nation’s capital, where women can give birth in emergencies, or obtain emergency pre-natal care. Howard University is trying to add another 10 beds to its natal unit.
This shutdown of obstetrics services is also occurring in hundreds of rural counties nationwide. Apart from citing deficient services from lack of resources, the argument often given for closure, is that there are only a “few” (dozens or hundreds) of birth cases yearly, so why keep facilities open at all. This rationale is exactly contrary to the principle embodied in what originally built up the U.S. hospital system, under the 1946 Hill-Burton Act. That act mandated a certain ratio of licensed beds, and natal services per population, no matter what.
UMC was taken over by the District of Columbia in 2010, because of financial stress, as it now is again experiencing. Before that, the full-service D.C. General Hospital provided close to two centuries of excellent service from 1806 to 2001, but was deliberately shut in early 2001, in the name of cost-cutting for the District of Columbia, with the connivance of Congress and the Bush-Cheney White House.
Anti-Trump Cabal Takes Credit for New Round of ‘Human Rights’ and ‘Corruption’ Sanctions
Dec. 26 (EIRNS)—On Dec. 21, the White House issued an Executive Order (EO) implementing the “Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act,” an abomination signed into law as a parting shot by Barack Obama in December 2016. The EO reasserts the regime-change policy which has so damaged the United States and the world, “declaring a national emergency with respect to serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world and providing for the imposition of sanctions on actors engaged in these malign activities.” The 13 people sanctioned under the EO, followed by one day the announcement by Steve Mnuchin’s Treasury Department of sanctions against five more Russians, under the 2012 Magnitsky Act aimed just at Russia on which the “Global” act is based.
Well-known players in the British coup operation against President Trump want it known that this is “their baby.” The lead co-sponsors of the law, Senators Ben Cardin and John McCain, issued a statement thanking the administration for implementing their law, but expressing their “gratitude to the career professionals whose expertise and dedication to justice made today’s Global Magnitsky sanctions designations possible. David Fried, State Department sanctions coordinator during the Obama administration, told the Washington Post’s Josh Rogin that “despite all this talk about the deep state, it shows how the professionals who run the policy are capable of working under difficult circumstances and doing great work. And if the Trump administration gets credit for it, so be it.”
And according to Rogin in his Dec. 24 article on the EO, the high-level British agent whose role in the ‘Get Trump’ coup and in setting up both “Magnitsky” laws is detailed in LaRouche PAC’s “Robert Mueller Is An Immoral Assassin” pamphlet, William Browder, “compared the Trump administration’s action favorably to that of the Obama team.”
Among the dozens of individuals from across the globe targetted in these new sanctions are:
Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of the Chechen Republic who has worked closely with President Putin to crush the British-run Chechen terrorists whose fighters fed al-Qaeda, ISIS, etc.
Artem Chayka, son of the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, for allegedly “leverag[ing] his father’s position … to unfairly win state-owned assets and contracts and put pressure on business competitors”;
Gao Yan, director of the Beijing Public Security Bureau Chaoyang Branch, blamed for human rights activist Cao Shunli dying in custody;
Sergey Kusiuk, commander of the Ukrainian police unit, the Berkut, held responsible by the U.S. for attacks on “protesters” in the Nazi-led uprising in Kiev’s Maidan in 2013 and 2014;
Maung Maung Soe, former chief of the Burmese Army’s Western command;
Roberto José Rivas Reyes, president of Nicaragua’s Supreme Electoral Council, who “has been accused in the press [sic!] of amassing sizable personal wealth, including multiple properties, private jets, luxury vehicles, and a yacht.”
THE NEW GLOBAL ECONOMIC ORDER
China, Pakistan Offer for Afghanistan To Join Economic Corridor at Foreign Ministers Meeting
Dec. 26 (EIRNS)—In the first-ever trilateral meeting, the Foreign Ministers of China, Pakistan, and Afghanistan reaffirmed their commitment to improving relations, deepening mutually beneficial cooperation, advancing connectivity under China’s ambitious Belt and Road Initiative, and fighting terrorism in all its forms and manifestation without any distinction, China’s Foreign Ministry reported today.  Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi hosted the first China-Afghanistan-Pakistan Foreign Ministers’ Dialogue in Beijing with Afghanistan’s Salahuddin Rabbani and Pakistan’s Khawaja Muhammad Asif.
In his proposal to extend their $57 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) to Afghanistan, Wang, talking to the reporters, pointed to Afghanistan’s urgent need to develop and improve people’s lives, and his hopes it can join inter-connectivity initiatives. “So China and Pakistan are willing to look at—with Afghanistan, on the basis of win-win—mutually beneficial principles, using an appropriate way,” he said, Afghanistan’s TOLOnews reported.
In his bilateral meeting with the Afghan Foreign Minister Rabbani, Wang said China hoped to synergize its development strategy for Afghanistan and expand bilateral cooperation. China expected to see a wide and inclusive political reconciliation process in Afghanistan, led and owned by the Afghan people, he said, Afghanistan’s Pajhwok reported. Rabbani, welcoming the proposal and hailing China as a reliable partner, said his country was ready to actively participate in the Belt and Road Initiative, and enhance cooperation with China in areas of inter-connectivity, infrastructure and energy.
Six Corridors Highlighted at Program for Infrastructure in Africa Conference in Namibia
Dec. 26 (EIRNS)—The 2017 Program for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA) Week took place in Swakopmund, Namibia on Dec. 10-14. Countries throughout Africa and especially member states of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) showcased major development projects to promote regional integration.
According to an article by the SADC news agency, the six infrastructure corridor projects showcased during the event included:
1) The Batoka Gorge Hydropower Plant
2) The Zambia-Tanzania-Kenya (ZTK) Power Interconnector
3) The Kinshasa-Brazzaville Road and Railway Bridge
4) The Central Corridor in the United Republic of Tanzania
5) The Ethiopia-Sudan Power Interconnector being sponsored by the East African Community (EAC)
6) The Abidjan-Lagos Corridor sponsored by the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas).
The Batoka Gorge hydropower station which entails the construction of an 181 meter gravity dam and the installation of eight 200MW units with the power shared equally between the Zambia and Zimbabwe. The 1,600 MW of electricity the project will produce will be enough to ease shortages in Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Since the two countries are connected to the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP), which coordinates the management of electricity in the region, the proposed power station will also benefit member states of SADC, with the exception of Angola, Malawi, and Tanzania.
The ZTK interconnector entails a high-voltage power transmission line connecting Zambia, Tanzania and Kenya. Once completed it will create a link between SAPP and the East African Power Pool (EAPP), making it possible to transmit power from Cape Town to Cairo.
The 2,206 km interconnector will have a capacity of 400MW. It is a Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA)-SADC-EAC Tripartite Priority project as well as a New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) project under the PIDA program and the Africa Power Vision, and has been endorsed by the African Union (AU) heads of state and government.
The proposed Kinshasa-Brazzaville Road and Railway Bridge will be a railroad bridge across the Congo River to link Kinshasa and Brazzaville, the capitals of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Republic of Congo, respectively. It also will involve the construction of a 1,000 km railway to connect the cities of Kinshasa and Ilebo in the D.R.C., as well as development of road networks on both sides of the Congo River to link the two countries to the bridge. Sponsored by the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), the project would be part of the Central Corridor which involves the construction of the Dar-es-Salaam to Chalinze Toll Road.
SADC Deputy Executive Secretary responsible for corporate affairs, Emilie Mushobekwa said infrastructure development “requires sustained efforts from all stakeholders to maintain the momentum of implementation. Sustaining this momentum requires that in addition to political will, other necessary enabling conditions are availed.”
PIDA is a blueprint for African infrastructure transformation for the period 2012-2040. The program was adopted by African leaders in January 2012 and provides a strategic framework for priority infrastructure projects to interconnected and integrated region. The African Development Bank, African Union Commission, Namibian government, NEPAD, and United Nations Economic Commission for Africa organized the 2017 PIDA Week to present the project to potential donors.
STRATEGIC WAR DANGER
Lavrov and Tillerson Discuss Syria National Dialogue Conference
Dec. 26 (EIRNS)—Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson discussed further steps to settle the Syrian conflict to include the Syrian National Dialogue Conference, set for Jan. 29-30 in Sochi, Russia, during a phone conversation today.
The Russian Foreign Ministry posted a statement saying, “The sides discussed further steps to overcome the Syrian conflict with preservation of that country’s territorial integrity. Among the topics discussed was an intra-Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Sochi as part of efforts to promote settlement on the basis of United Nations Security Council resolution 2254, and encourage direct talks between the Syrian government and the opposition in Geneva without preliminary conditions.”
The Lavrov-Tillerson discussion followed by one day a Reuters report that a coalition of Syrian opposition groups have rejected participation in the Sochi conference. “Russia has not contributed one step to easing the suffering of Syrians and has not pressured the regime that it claims it is a guarantor for, by moving in any real path towards a solution,” they said in a statement signed by about 40 unidentified groups. “Russia is an aggressor country that has committed war crimes against Syrians…. It stood with the regime militarily and defended it politically, and over seven years preventing UN condemnation of (Syrian President Bashar) Assad’s regime,” the statement said.
Lavrov Says U.S.-Russian Relations Held Hostage to ‘Fit of McCarthyism’
Dec. 26 (EIRNS)—Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency (the parent company of Sputnik and RIA) asked Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov if there were any news on a possible meeting between Presidents Trump and Putin to discuss North Korea, when they interviewed him on Dec. 25, 2017. And, they asked, are personal contacts between the presidents the only way to prevent the countries from “slipping into a new Iron Curtain situation?”
Lavrov answered that “the date of the next one-on-one meeting has not been discussed yet,” but “contacts between the presidents of Russia and the United States have intensified recently,” and their discussions “cover a wide range of bilateral and international matters.”  Dialogue occurs on other levels, as well, such as between himself and Secretary of State Tillerson, between the special services, etc.
There are many problems in our relations, “both old and new or, more precisely, artificially created ones,” however, he said. He elaborated:
“The main one is Russophobic hysteria which engulfed the Washington political establishment and took on a paranoid dimension, without exaggeration….
“I do not think, however, that the term Iron Curtain is applicable to Russia-U.S. relations at their current stage. Rather, we can talk about another fit of McCarthyism, which the American society, it turns out, is still susceptible to. Personally, I am sure, that similar to the witch hunt engineered by Senator McCarthy, with which everyone was fed up, in the current situation, everyone will see things for what they really are followed by recovery. However, it would be true to say that time was wasted.
“For our part, we are acting in a pragmatic manner. We respond to aggressive attacks, but we are not going to spur the confrontation.” Russia will keep working “to get our colleagues in Washington back to the fundamental principles which should form the basis for bilateral dialogue. Taking into account and respecting each other’s interests are the main ones among them,” he specified.
Kiev Regime, Donbas Republics Agree on Prisoner Swap
Dec. 26 (EIRNS)—News reports from both sides of the line of contact in the Donbas region of southeast Ukraine indicate that the two sides have agreed on a prisoner swap that was mediated, for the two eastern “People’s Republics,” by Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church, and for the Ukrainians by Viktor Medvedchuk, leader of “Ukrainian Choice-Right of People” public movement. Yesterday, Donetsk leader Alexander Zakharchenko and Luhansk leader Leonid Pasechnik met with Patriarch Kirill at a monastery in Moscow and came out endorsing the plan. “Today a crucial event has taken place, the last conditions have been agreed and on,” said a participant. The last prisoner exchange between the two sides occurred 14 months ago.
The Patriarch stressed that not all prisoners have been included in the lists, voicing hope that the dialogue will continue, reported TASS. “I have high hopes that this first stage will continue by further efforts on releasing all captives,” he said.
Medvedchuk’s role was apparently to prevail upon Putin to talk to Zakharchenko and Pasechnik about the prisoner exchange, reported Unian. “I will do everything that depends on me. I will talk with the leadership of the ‘Donetsk Republic’ and ‘Luhansk Republic.’ I hope that what you are proposing will be realized as soon as possible,” Putin had said on Nov. 15 in response Medvedchuk’s request.
It was reported this afternoon that Zakharchenko had issued pardons for 74 Ukrainian prisoners in preparation for the exchange. The Ukrainian side is to hand over 306 people in turn.
SCIENCE AND INFRASTRUCTURE
Chinese Government Approves Fusion Engineering Test Reactor
Dec. 26 (EIRNS)—The day after the Chinese central government announced it was backing the project for the next-step experimental fusion power station on Dec. 6, a competition began among cities in China to host the project, the South China Morning Post reports today. The reactor will be a follow-on to ITER, and scientists have been working on the design for an engineering test reactor tokamak that will solve engineering challenges of fusion, anticipating a government go-ahead.
Hefei, where the Institute of Plasma Physics hosts the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST), which has been setting records in fusion research, is in the running, with officials saying they are mounting an “all out” effort to have the new reactor built there. The article reports that the days after the government approval, the Shanghai’s Communist Party secretary and the city’s mayor visited Hefei, to discuss cooperation on the project. Shanghai, researchers at Hefei said, has a large pool of scientific talent, and hoped to host the project.
Third, is Chengdu, which has played a major role in China’s nuclear weapons program, and its bid for the fusion project is backed by the military and the nuclear industry. Sichuan province is also already home to several smaller fusion experiments.
The article accurately asserts that “with strong financial backing from the Chinese government, Chinese researchers have extended their fusion research lead over the U.S. in recent years, setting records for the longest lasting, most stable plasma and developing new technologies and materials in state-of-the-art laboratories.” The U.S. has no plan for any experiments beyond ITER, and has been shutting down operating fusion machines, for lack of funding.
According to a timetable posted by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, design work will continue, and construction will start in 2021. The reactor will, therefore, be built in parallel with ITER, which is not scheduled to start its experiments with a burning plasma until four years later. This a more ambitious plan that waiting for results from ITER, and was the way the U.S. fusion program was carried out in the 1970s, when real progress was being made in the program.

Peru’s Former President Fujimori Finally Freed
Dec. 26 (EIRNS)—At age 79, after serving 12 years of a 25-year sentence for alleged “human rights abuses,” Alberto Fujimori, president of Peru from 1990-2000, was pardoned by President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (“PPK”) late on Dec. 24. Fujimori received the news in a hospital clinic, where he had been taken from jail earlier that day because of his deteriorating health.
Fujimori should never have been jailed. He was driven out of power in November 2000 and later sentenced to an effective death sentence by George Soros and then-U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright for the “crime” of saving Peru from narcoterrorism, and then breaking with the IMF policies which he had adhered to while fighting terrorism.
Fujimori had begun to turn the capacity for command decisions he demonstrated in fighting narcoterrorism, to development. In a short speech on Sept. 1, 2000 to the first-ever summit of South American heads of state, Fujimori proposed that the nations join forces to satisfy “our people’s longing for progress.” He denounced the “sizable and heavy foreign debt weighing upon the shoulders of our peoples, and whose principal, according to conservative data, has been paid several times, over the course of these last 25 years. We are 450 million South Americans, but 200 million of our people live in poverty, in precarious living conditions, reminiscent of centuries past,” he said. “We South Americans are no less capable than other peoples of the world, who are achieving progress. Therefore, our goals must be audacious and our actions sufficiently efficient to turn our dreams into reality.” He proposed as a goal the future formation of “the United States of South America,” premised on physical integration through great infrastructure projects. (See EIR, Vol. 27, #36, Sept. 15, 2000)
The day before that speech, the Los Angeles Times wrote that “the Fujimori regime has … a strange affinity for the far-right rambling of the U.S.-based Lyndon LaRouche movement,” and warned that “his regime could become the model for a trend.” Not public, but known to the financiers and their scribblers in the media, was that a visit to Peru by LaRouche that very October was being finalized, in which LaRouche was scheduled to meet with the nation’s top leadership and to deliver a number of high-profile speeches.
Less than three months later, Fujimori was overthrown.
President PPK released Fujimori as part of deal to stay in power. In the Dec. 21 Congressional vote on impeachment of PPK, 10 members of the majority party led by Fujimori’s daughter Keiko voted against throwing PPK out of office, giving PPK the eight votes more he needed beyond the support of the Sorbonne-run left New Peru party to survive. In an address to the nation on Dec. 25, PPK said that he had been following the gradual deterioration in Fujimori’s health. He had served 12 years after being justly sanctioned by Peruvian court, PPK said, but “we who feel we are democrats should not allow Alberto Fujimori to die in prison. Justice is not revenge.” He acknowledged that Fujimori had inherited a country in the midst of a violent and chaotic crisis, and while he violated laws, respect for democracy and human rights, PPK said, “I believe his government contributed to national progress.”
The Soros-run apparatus internationally and inside Peru have shrieked in opposition to Fujimori’s release, and have launched street protests in response. The full terms of the deal that was struck are unknown at this time, as are its implications for the immediate future of Peru.
