Events of the last several days make it clear that President Obama is going down–and fast. His own Democratic Party defeated his free trade bill in the Senate by an unprecedented near-unanimous “no” vote on Tuesday. Although there is subsequent talk of a compromise on four killer amendments that were demanded by Senate Democrats, there is no certainty that the renewed effort will succeed; and the votes are not there in the House.
Obama’s despicable boycotting of the Moscow commemoration of the defeat of Hitler blew up in his face, as many world leaders, particularly from Asia, joined with President Putin in celebrating mankind’s victory over fascism 70 years ago.
The latest indication that Obama’s White House days are numbered, came yesterday, when sane U.S. institutional forces intervened, and Secretary of State John Kerry traveled to Sochi, Russia, for eight hours of talks with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and President Putin. The intent of the talks was to de-escalate the British-Obama provocations against Russia before they reached the point of thermonuclear war. Kerry delivered a clear message that sane circles in Washington intend to resume collaboration with Russia on war avoidance. The clearest public expression of this intent came during the joint press availability by Kerry and Lavrov, following the four-hour meeting with President Putin, when Kerry delivered a clear warning to Ukrainian President Poroshenko to back off from plans to resume military actions to retake the Donetsk Airport.
There are other indications that talks with Iran are moving ahead towards a P5+1 agreement before the June 30 deadline. This makes it all the more urgent that the Anglo-Saudi war plans be stopped dead in their tracks–by the continued mobilization to force the release of the 28 pages from the original Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11.
This week, Seymour Hersh blew the lid off the Saudi-Obama Big Lie hoax around the killing of Osama Bin Laden. In a 10,000- word piece, Hersh revealed that Bin Laden was killed in a premeditated assassination, engineered with the Saudis. There was no fire fight with Al Qaeda guards. There was no torture-derived evidence that led to the location of Bin Laden’s Pakistani safehouse. Not one single detail of the “official” Administration account was true–and in the course of putting out one lie after the other, Obama betrayed the very Pakistani military officials who turned over the key information and ushered the US assassins into Bin Laden’s unguarded compound, where he was, in effect, under house arrest by the Pakistani ISI.
Lyndon LaRouche commented on Wednesday that the progress on the P5+1, combined with the Kerry talks in Sochi and the continuing Democratic revolt against Obama, also means that the drive to dump Obama is on an accelerated trajectory, and could mean that the looming financial blowout can be averted. This, he stressed, must be the intention.
With Obama down, it is possible to quickly cancel the financial fraud, and, through emergency legislation, launch a new financial and monetary structure to revive the productive economy. This begins with the immediate reinstatement of Glass- Steagall. There must be a revival of the productive economy, meaning that the gambling debt and the other waste must be eliminated and penalized. Glass-Steagall is more important than ever, given the current context. Credit must be developed for useful production, especially for training of a new generation of skilled workers. We must build up the fractured communities around the country that have been devastated by the economic policies of the past 40 years, and genuine economic growth must be restored on a progressively accelerating scale.
In short, the current system must be reversed, and the parasites have to go.
The shift that has taken place in the recent days is the consequence of some people facing the reality that the world was headed to thermonuclear extinction, and that the survival of mankind was directly on the line. The decision is clear: It would be beyond madness to run the risk of such a fate, and so, actions had to be taken to overturn the British-Wall Street desperate rush to war.

Kerry: Use of Force by Poroshenko Would Be Destructive of Minsk Agreement
The constant theme of the Obama Administration and its NATO allies has been to place the entirety of the blame for continued warfare in southeast Ukraine on Moscow. Therefore, according to this line of reasoning, if the Minsk agreement fails, it is because Russia has not held up its end of the bargain. It should be noteworthy, therefore, when Secretary of State John Kerry admonishes the Kiev regime for contemplating the continuation of violence to achieve its goals in the Donbass.
Kerry’s comments came during a joint press briefing in Sochi with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on May 12. A member of the Russian media asked Kerry to comment on the public vow, made by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko a few days ago, to retake the Donetsk airport by force, if necessary. Kerry said, according to the State Department transcript, that he hadn’t heard the speech,
“but if indeed President Poroshenko is advocating an engagement in a forceful effort at this time, we would strongly urge him to think twice not to engage in that kind of activity, that that would put Minsk in serious jeopardy.”
Kerry went on to give Poroshenko the benefit of the doubt, that maybe he was talking about the long term, but he warned that
“resort to force by any party at this point in time would be extremely destructive at a moment when everyone has brought together the working groups, the working groups have met, and the working groups have an ability to try to provide a path forward on all of those issues that many of us have been concerned about over the course of the last months.”
Lavrov, standing next to Kerry, said that he “absolutely” agreed with him and that “any attempts to engage again in a forceful scenario could be really undermining the efforts that we have been taking.
Overall, Kerry spent four hours meeting with Lavrov and another four hours meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In addition to discussing the Ukraine crisis and the urgent need to fully implement the Minsk Accords, they discussed the P5+1 negotiations with Iran, and seem to have particularly discussed the current Syria situation, on the eve of the Obama meeting at Camp David, Thursday, with the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) representatives (events begin Wednesday night with a White House banquet), which will take place all day.
In fact, the Kerry visit to Sochi was, in itself, a political coup against Obama and the British, who have been on a jihad against Putin and Russia since the launching of Nuland’s Nazi coup in Kiev in November 2013. Washington sources made clear that the Kerry trip was made possible by a strong intervention by sane forces in Washington, including within the Pentagon and JCS, who saw the world headed towards thermonuclear extinction and had to act. These sources reported that the open, face-to-face dialogue between Kerry, Lavrov, and Putin was a significant, albeit first step towards de-escalating the danger of general war.
