Coup-Plotters Frantic To Sabotage Trump’s Asia Trip

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouchePAC:

As President Trump prepares to leave for Asia this week, for crucial meetings with Xi Jinping, Shinzo Abe, Rodrigo Duterte, Moon Jae-in, and perhaps also Vladimir Putin — meetings which could bring the United States directly into sync with the new paradigm for mankind emerging from China’s New Silk Road process — the British Empire’s flunkies in the U.S. are frantically trying to discredit or even indict the President, to sabotage his intention to form friendly and constructive relations with China and Russia.

Legal assassin Robert Mueller’s indictments of Paul Manafort, who was briefly Trump’s campaign manager in 2016, and George Papadopoulos, who was likely a British plant in Trump’s transition team (with no apparent influence), has been plastered all over the nation’s press as if it were the first blow in bringing Trump down. Trump responded with tweets saying that the charges against Manafort have nothing to do with either himself, nor with Russia, adding that “Few people knew the young, low level volunteer named George, who has already proven to be a liar.” David Gergen, the CNN commentator, gave it away Monday night by warning Trump that he should not undertake his Asian trip while he is facing such a deadly legal attack. Hogwash.

China, in the meantime, is rolling out the red carpet for Trump’s presidential visit—the first by a head of state since the historic 19th CPC National Congress, which concretized the transformation of world history initiated by Xi Jinping’s launching of the New Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road during his first five-year term.

The barrage of media attacks on Xi in the U.S. and British press — as a ruthless dictator, “the new Mao” and “the new Stalin,” among others — cannot cover up the reality of the incredible pace of development, within China, and across the developing sector nations of the world, through the Belt and Road Initiative. Even the IMF and such historic British banking institutions as HSBC are forced by reality to report the transformation taking place internationally due to China’s initiative — if only because they want to contain it.

The difference between the two futures facing mankind is stark. Xi Jinping presented a vision for China and the world for 2050, with China becoming a fully developed nation, while helping to lift the world’s formerly colonized countries out of poverty to become modern industrial nations. He bases this on the concepts of a “community of common destiny,” and a “new type of great power relations.” He fully backs President Trump’s stated intention to work closely with China and Russia in this new type of great power relations, driven by the New Silk Road vision for a common destiny of progress for all.

Then there is the current lack of vision in the West. The British imperial interests behind the coup attempt against Trump are the same City of London and Wall Street forces which have driven the western economies into industrial decay, the collapse of infrastructure, the demise of our nuclear industry and our space programs, a horrendous drug epidemic, vast unemployment and increasing rates of poverty and suicide.

Yet the means to escape this dying culture are in our hands. While the New Silk Road is the pathway, the evil of the bankrupt gambling institutions in London and on Wall Street, which have taken control of most of our government institutions, must be destroyed if we are to realize such a vision. Franklin Roosevelt showed that this is possible with his New Deal, imposing Glass-Steagall to clean out the filth on Wall Street, and establishing Hamiltonian national credit to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure and unleash the productive powers of labor and scientific development.

Prof writes book calling for ‘Marxist Education’ in K-12


from Govt Slaves:

Toni Airaksinen–University of Washington-Bothell professor who trains aspiring K-12 teachers is publishing a book that advocates for “Marxist and socialist ideas” in education.

A Marxist Education: Learning to Change the World will be published on June 5 by Haymarket Books, and is authored by Wayne Au, a long-time social justice educator who teaches classes in the UW-Bothell School of Educational Studies.

The forthcoming book—a preview of which was reviewed by Campus Reform—frames the adoption of Marxist and socialist values as a much-needed strategy for educators to help students resist capitalism, white men, the U.S. President, and much more.

HUGE! Email Shows FBI ‘Informant’ Stefan Halper Was Still Spying on Trump Well Into 2017

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

It has been widely reported that the Obama administration had a spy working inside the Trump campaign.

As previously reported internet sleuths have determined the identity of the FBI spy inside the Trump campaign.

Jeff Carlson at theMarketswork on Thursday put together a piece where he places an individual by the name of Stefan Halper as a potential FBI spy into the Trump campaign. (Note that some believe that Obama may have had more than one spy on the Trump campaign).

It was a lucrative business for Stefan Halper.

Bad Faith Nation

by James Howard Kunstler, Kunstler:

There’s a simple reason that the old US Ship-of-State has turned into a garbage barge of toxic politics: both sides are operating in obviously bad faith — making arguments and taking positions that they know are false— and it’s been on full display this past week.

For instance, the Trump rally in Evansville, Indiana, Thursday night. The Golden Gloating Golem of Greatness presided over the spectacle in full gloatissimo mode, playing his audience of economic losers like a Hammond B-3 organ at a roller rink. His performance was oddly like the sort of rant that Uber drivers must suffer through with a fare who has been tweaking cocaine for three days en route to a funeral or a foreclosure. And, yes, I know that the President is said to abstain from mind-altering substances, but it appears that his mind has been sufficiently altered by his bizarre life experience to produce a similar effect. How else could he stand before an audience of millions (if you include the folks watching TV) and bellow, “I’m president and they’re not!”

Virgin Islands Allows National Guard To Seize Guns, Ammo Ahead Of Hurricane Irma


by Michael Bastasch, Daily Caller:

U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp signed an emergency order allowing the seizure of private guns, ammunition, explosives and property the National Guard may need to respond to Hurricane Irma.

Mapp signed the order Monday in preparation for Hurricane Irma. The order allows the Adjutant General of the Virgin Islands to seize private property they believe necessary to protect the islands, subject to approval by the territory’s Justice Department.

Mapp issued an emergency declaration Tuesday and mobilized National Guard units to prepare for the massive storm.

“This is not an opportunity to go outside and try to have fun with a hurricane,” Mapp said. “It’s not time to get on a surfboard.”

Irma strengthened to a Category 5 storm Tuesday, with wind gusts hitting 175 miles an hour. Irma’s eye is expected to pass just north of the heart of the U.S. Virgin Islands on Wednesday and bring four to eight inches or rain and 60-mile-per-hour wind gusts.

The National Hurricane Center is calling the storm “extremely dangerous.” Weather forecasters say Irma is headed towards the Florida coastline, and should bring devastating conditions to the region in the next four or five days.

GOP Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló both declared states of emergencies in anticipation of Irma.

Scott said President Donald Trump “offered the full resources of the federal government as Floridians prepare for Hurricane Irma.”

Four Flashpoints of Volatility

by Jim Rickards, Daily Reckoning:

1 – Trade Wars Flashpoints, From China to Canada and Mexico
Wall Street has knee-jerk reactions to any trade war related headlines.

There are legitimate reasons to be concerned about trade wars. The world is increasingly more connected than ever. Many major American companies that are household names such as Starbucks (SBUX), Boeing (BA) and Apple (AAPL) rely on their exports (and imports) from China for a sizable portion of their overall sales and profits.

If China continues to retaliate against trade war policies from the U.S. with harsh measures of their own, it could hurt revenues of those firms.


by Jim Quinn, The Burning Platform:

“Government has coddled, accepted, and ignored white collar crime for too long. It is time the nation woke up and realized that it’s not the armed robbers or drug dealers who cause the most economic harm, it’s the white collar criminals living in the most expensive homes who have the most impressive resumes who harm us the most. They steal our pensions, bankrupt our companies, and destroy thousands of jobs, ruining countless lives.” – Harry Markopolos, Madoff Whistleblower

Senate Introduces Bill Intended to Displace U.S. Tech Workers


by Joe Guzzardi, The Burning Platform:

In one of his final official acts before retiring, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) introduced the Immigration Innovation Act of 2018 that would increase the annual H-1B quota from the current 85,000 up to as many as 195,000. Cosponsored by lame duck Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), the bill would also allow H-1B visa holders’ spouses and children to work, a provision that President Obama’s 2015 executive order granted, and which the Department of Security is re-evaluating with an eye toward ending.

The press release that announced the Hatch-Flake legislation, also referred to as I-Squared and a nonstarter in the two previous Congresses, is watered down with touchy-feely language, but the end goal is obvious: fewer jobs for American tech workers and more imported overseas labor.

These well-worn, purposely misleading statements were scattered throughout the senators’ jointly released statement to the press. Among them were that thousands more visas are “vital to maintaining United States competitiveness in a global economy,” “a shortage of American workers” and “now more than ever we need highly qualified workers….” Brazenly, the press release carried endorsements from Silicon Valley’s captains of industry like Microsoft and Facebook that profit from the cheap labor H-1B visa holders provide.

But displaced, highly skilled American tech workers tell a different, more compelling story than the congressional boiler plate pap. Craig Diangelo worked at Connecticut-based Northeast Utilities. Like many of his fired IT peers nationwide, his severance package was contingent on him training his H-1B replacement. The indifference Congress has consistently shown to laid-off Americans who must, often for the first time in their lives, rely on unemployment insurance to survive propelled Diangelo to become a 2018 House of Representatives candidate in Connecticut’s 5th District.

Liberal and progressive-leaning analysts have provided substantial, fact-based evidence which proves that, despite congressional and industry claims to the contrary, no shortage of qualified American workers exists.

In 2016, Howard University associate public policy professor Dr. Ron Hira, and author of “Outsourcing America: What’s Behind our National Crisis and How We Can Reclaim American Jobs,” told the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest that IT employers who hire H-1B visa workers generate substantially higher profit margins. Replacing Americans workers with H-1Bs is, added Hira, easily done, and leads to an insatiable corporate appetite for more foreign labor. 

The media has taken a hard look at the alleged tech shortage, and concluded that it’s hyped. In its April 2017 story, The Boston Globe exposed many tech industry claims about shortages as either false or deceptive. Among its most critical findings, The Globe wrote that tech companies are prolific job-cutters. Challenger Gray & Christmas, Inc., a job-search firm that compiles workforce reduction data, found that technology companies have cut more than 413,000 jobs since 2012, including more than 96,000 in 2016. Wages, an important variable in measuring job shortages, have been flat for years, a clear indication that a domestic labor supply is abundant.
