Humanity Is In a War Against COVID-19:

Return to the Manhattan Project and the Apollo Program


On January 28, the President came to Wildwood. My campaign team was there -- you may have seen us. We distributed my statement, “End the Coup, Colonize Mars,” in which I endorsed Helga Zepp-LaRouche’s January 3rd call for an emergency summit between Presidents Trump, Putin, and Xi, to reduce the danger of war and take measures to prevent global financial collapse. You may have seen our banner with pictures of the three Presidents.

On February 29th, at a press conference with the Coronavirus Task Force, President Trump announced that he desires to have a summit with Russia, China, the UK, and France, to discuss the question of arms control. 

This summit could not be more urgent for the immediate future of humanity. We must rapidly advance a crash international program to defeat the pandemic. The deleterious effects of COVID-19 on the world economy have exposed the widespread loss of economic sovereignty in the post-Bretton Woods, post-Glass-Steagall era. In the name of globalization and free trade, we have decimated our manufacturing capability, bankrupted our family farms and thus crippled our domestic food production, reduced our overall number of hospital beds from 1.5 million in 1975 to only 931,000 in 2017, and meanwhile blown a gigantic bubble of worthless financial paper. Many other countries are in a similar condition or worse.

Who has benefited? Only the City of London and Wall Street, parasitical swindlers and Malthusians just like their representative Mini Mike Bloomberg. Their cure for the virus? More money printing at the Fed (did you notice they extended $120 billion in secret loans to Wall Street last week?) and interest rates rocketing towards zero. The President is dangerously mistaken if he believes more monetarism will save the day.

President Trump can free the nation from those mistaken beliefs by exonerating the late Lyndon LaRouche, Robert Mueller’s first hit job, so that his unique contributions to economic science can be discussed. It was LaRouche who forecast these developments in world economy going back to 1971, only to be targeted for elimination by the same forces now attempting to destroy Trump.

We face a global crisis. At the prospective summit, it will be necessary for these leading nations to discuss not only arms control, but also the emergency installation of Glass-Steagall protections in this nation and every other, to defend the sector of the banking system that serves the physical economy from the tsunami of worthless derivatives soon to reach our shores. In addition, the chartering of new national banks to utter credit for the physical economy can be initiated. These are the first steps of Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Laws program for rebuilding the world economy.

In his inaugural address, John F. Kennedy said of the US and the USSR, “Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors. Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths and encourage the arts and commerce.” Is it not clear that we require that same commitment today?

In President Trump, Kennedy’s spirit lives on. He campaigned and won in 2016 saying, “A good relationship with Russia and China is a good thing, not a bad thing!” At the February 29 press conference, he said, “...our relationship with China is very good.  Maybe it’s closer because of what’s happened here... you know, in a certain way, this can bring the world closer, if you want to know. It can really do that.”

Will members of the Republican party continue its recent tradition of cynical sloganeering and warmongering? Or will they be inspired by Trump and JFK to seek out new, cooperative means by which to address the crisis?

If they choose the latter, we will return to grand missions for the United States and humanity, as represented in potential by NASA’s Artemis Program to land Americans on the Moon by 2024 as a launchpad for manned missions to Mars. We will, as we did during the Manhattan Project and the Apollo Program, mobilize the creative powers of our citizenry to create the breakthroughs in science necessary to move all of humanity to a higher platform of economy, one powerful enough that pandemics like COVID-19 will become a distant memory of a difficult time. We will unify the nation once again by giving a beautiful and noble purpose to our people.
