Debra Freeman: Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen. On behalf of LaRouchePAC, I'd like to welcome all of you to this afternoon's event. It is traditional in the United States, that around this time, the President delivers a State of the Union address, and that address traditionally outlines the prospects for the nation, and because of the importance of the United States, very often, the prospects for the world, in the period immediately ahead.

However, things being as they are, I don't really think that we can expect that kind of an address from Barack Obama. Yet, given the depth of the crisis, both the crisis in our own nation, and the crisis internationally, it were imperative, that, in fact, a State of the Union be delivered. It's necessary for the citizens of our country; it's necessary for governments all over the world.

And so, without any further ado, I'd like to introduce to you the person in the United States who's best suited to give that address, Lyndon LaRouche.

Lyndon LaRouche: Thank you! Thank you. Thank you.

We have now entered a period of hyperinflation, inside the United States. It's also going on internationally, which means that people who are talking about adjustments in policy, during the coming months, or the coming weeks, months, whatever, are not in the real world. I happen to know that most of the Democratic Party leadership, which has been meeting and discussing things this past week, have no idea of what's about to hit them, and therefore, are debating matters which are actually irrelevant. That the usual things, the assumption, for example, that this President can remain to be the incumbent President, for more than fairly short period of time remaining, which is a very popular belief among Democrats, even those who despise this President, is a gone bunny. Because if you're going to have a United States, he's going to be gone. If he's not gone, you're not going to have a United States. That's where we are.

So, we've come to a time, where this useless creature, or worse than useless creature, called the President, is about to leave office soon, because we are now in a period of a rate of acceleration of international inflation, which is approaching that of what hit Germany in 1923. We're in, already, a 1923 type of syndrome. Any government that continues the policy of this President, or policy under this President, is a doomed government, this year!

Now, we don't have to have a doomed government. All we have to do, is get rid of this President. If you don't get rid of this President, you're not going to have a government. It's that simple. The Democrats have to come to understand that. If they've got any interim plan for accommodating to this President, they're wasting their time. Reality will not allow that to happen.

Just what do you think the Germans were thinking in Germany in 1923, during the Summer and Autumn of 1923? Something quite similar to what many Democrats, for example, are thinking out there, what many people are thinking wishfully out there, today. We do not have a long time to play around with this thing.

However, on the other hand, there is a narrow selection of measures which are appropriate to this problem. It is possible, within a short period of time, to change this situation, beginning with the Glass-Steagall action; the actual, original Glass-Steagall being re-enacted, at some time during the weeks, or so forth, ahead, would be sufficient to open the gates, for alternatives for recovery, not only in the United States, but because of the United States, the planet.

The other qualification is this. There are certain features of the United States, its system, its legacy, which is not replicated in any other part of the world. For example, if the United States were to go under, Europe is doomed, automatically. If the United States and Europe are doomed, the entire trans-Atlantic region is doomed; if the trans-Atlantic region is doomed, then Asia is doomed. And you're talking about a long dark age, with a very deep-going depopulation of this planet.

So, the time has come: You can no longer postpone, you can no longer make accommodations, and therefore, the kind of State of the Union address that's required, has to deal with a very limited number, but crucial options, which will save this nation, and make possible the saving of civilization.

Now, therefore, for this occasion, this is not the time for a discussion of options—one guy debates this, another guy debates this, another guy debates this. There's no room for debate, in the ordinary sense of debating policy. There are certain policies that must be put through now, or the United States goes to Hell. And if the United States goes to Hell, the world goes to Hell.

That's reality. And this current President has no relevance in the future of this nation, or of this planet. There's no way that this nation can survive under the continuation of this President in office, and I need not specify more than orally, here, that he should be thrown out of office, on the 25th Amendment, section 4. He's eligible, he should have been thrown out of office, now! If he's not thrown out of office—and he will have to be thrown out of office—there is no United States! The existence of the United States, and the role of Obama as President of the United States, have come to a screeching halt, now!

Right now, you're in a state, where any accident in the economy, can cause a general chain-reaction collapse of this world economy, starting in the United States—or someplace else. Brazil is ready to go! Russia's on the edge of going! You think the British are powerful? Yes, the British are controlling the planet, politically, through groups like the financial group, the Inter-Alpha Group. That group does control the international financial system! But that financial system, itself, is what must be gone, if the world is to survive. So that's the kind of situation we're in.

And therefore, on this occasion, I shall open my remarks by reading—something I usually don't do on an occasion like this—reading the text of my own draft statement. Because this is a period in which argument is irrelevant. There are certain specific things, which must be done in a specific way, and in a specific sequence, if we are to save this nation. Therefore, this must be precise. This is not a matter of opening a discussion of a broad-ranging debate. This is laying down exactly, as if it were a military plan of operation, in warfare, a precise program for getting the United States out of this alive, and now!

And therefore, I shall read this, shall we say, word for word, in order to put this on the record. Because the issues which I am presenting are not inherently debatable. They are discussable, but the argument is not debatable. The argument must be discussed, because it's the only chance we have, to save this nation, and to save civilization.

Okay, I shall read as follows:

I. The Crisis

At this present moment, we are now at the breaking-point at which civilization throughout our planet is wobbling at the brink of what could probably soon be, the greatest crisis of humanity since Europe's Fourteenth-century plunge into an new dark age. At this moment, the cause of today's crisis of civilization, is centered within the British Isles. But, the crisis itself reaches throughout Europe: from Portugal to, and throughout Russia. It is a crisis which has been steered, by the British empire's often controlling political interference into the functions of our government.

Fortunately, there are still moments of opportunity for changing all this during the very short time ahead; but we can not wait longer than that. The brief opportunities to rescue our republic exist only if we find leaders who show both the needed wisdom and courage to act immediately.

The needed current strategic reality is as follows.

Right now. Since the beginning of 2011, the world as a whole has been now gripped by accelerating rates of price-inflation, in a pattern which is already, comparable, as a pattern, to the Weimar Germany hyper-inflationary blow-out of 1923.

A world-wide spread of a breakdown-crisis, is now accelerating. Nothing but our United States, if it comes to its senses, could stop this crash's leading into a threatened, planet-wide "new dark age."

Simply said: Either the 1933 Glass-Steagall law is put into operation again now, without any change from the original, or our United States is doomed. In fact, the entirety of this planet would be taken down, chain-reaction-style, in the same process. No action but the immediate restoration of the 1933 Glass-Steagall law, and nothing different than that, will enable our republic to defeat the crisis of the immediate period ahead.

There had been remedies for this crisis at some time earlier, but those options have been wasted by the President and the Congress so far. Either that pattern of obstruction of urgently needed measures, will be reversed now, or there will soon be no United States, nor much of the rest of the planet, either. This breakdown-crisis is rapidly accelerating, now.

I have never erred in any forecast which I have issued since my Summer 1956 forecast of a major recession to strike somewhere in a short interval between late February and early March, 1957. That 1957 crisis came like an earthquake when it happened. That crisis came exactly on time, as I had forewarned. I had not made a "market forecast;" I had made a carefully crafted reading of inside technical information on the inner workings of the automobile marketing industry; statistical forecasting is for failures.

That said, turn our attention to the present world crisis.

To the extent that certain circles inside the United States had acted, since the Autumn of 2007, in opposing my Homeowners and Bank Protection Act of 2007, as that opposition to my action from inside the Congress itself, was led by such as Representative Barney Frank, all of whom were acting under the guidance provided to Presidents George W. Bush, Jr. and Barack Obama, it has been those two Presidents who have been chiefly responsible, however, together with their unconstitutional "signing statements," for the actual launching of what is now rapidly becoming the greatest, and most worthless financial bubble in the known history of mankind. Our United States, too, would be destroyed, inevitably, were we to permit a continued support for the so-called "bail-out" policies which were wrongfully unleashed by the combination of those two failed choices of Presidents, as also by the role of the most recent two heads of the Federal Reserve System, Morgan stooge Alan Greenspan, and Ben Bernanke, and, now, the shameless Timothy Geithner.

As a result of the bail-out, a world-wide, hyper-inflationary time-bomb is about to blow, now.

If that "bail-out" policy is permitted to continue, it will blow out the nations of the world, probably the trans-Atlantic region first, and, barring exceptional new developments, Asia second, with the imminent disintegration of that hopelessly bankrupt British monetarist system, which is known variously, either as the "Inter-Alpha Group" or its doomed subsidiary, the "BRIC." That British Inter-Alpha Group has been the chief causal factor, since 1971, in the presently onrushing hyper-inflationary disintegration of the trans-Atlantic region, and, therefore, the principal source of the current threat to global civilization generally.

Unfortunately, although the leading Asian nations, such as China and India, have been relatively competent in the conduct of their own affairs, especially as compared to the trans-Atlantic sector, even the great Asian nations could not withstand the ricocheting effects of a presently careening, general hyper-inflationary blow-out of the trans-Atlantic group of nations.

That ultimate breakdown associated with the creation of the Inter-Alpha Group is in progress now; so, it must be stopped now. Go back one crucial step earlier, to the crisis developments which led directly into the 1971 crisis.

The Factor of the Kennedy Assassination

The present condition of world-wide financial crisis, which has dominated this planet in the present form since the August 1971 cancellation of the Bretton Woods system, was, in large part, made possible by the effect of the earlier assassination of President John F. Kennedy. That assassination had enabled the launching of a worthless and ruinous war in Indo-China. That war had been a war even more ruinous in its ugly effects on the citizenry and youth of the United States, than on the Southeast Asian field of battle.

This war was not the fruit of an honest error. What had been done was according to a war-plan denounced by President Kennedy and General Douglas MacArthur, a war which ruined us, not only economically, but also morally. It was a war which could not have occurred without both the assassination of that President and the ensuing, frantic effort, in some leading circles, to prevent any serious public investigation of an assassination which coincided, in several respects, with what had been, already, the repeated efforts from Spain-based fascist operations against France's great President Charles de Gaulle.

The Warren Commission was, thus, the actual turning-point, since which our United States has gone down, down, and down, even despite that great space achievement which had been set into motion by that murdered President.

Despite all that, still today, our U.S. Federal Constitution still equips us with a still lingering remedy for this present world economic crisis-situation; but, unless the original 1933 Glass-Steagall law is now immediately restored by our United States, very soon, as the highest priority of our government's actions now, there is no chance that our republic would now survive under its present Constitution; these United States could not outlive the presently accelerating hyper-inflationary bubble being orchestrated against us by London and London's Wall Street appendages. In that case, no part of the planet will escape the full force of the greatest, British-led process of "creative destruction"-orchestrated, hyper-inflationary collapse of civilization, in known modern history since the 1648 Peace of Westphalia.

What is inevitable is, in one way or another, the collapse of a presumed trillions of what are, essentially, financially fictitious U.S. dollars of debt attributed to "bail-out" operations, which will never be paid, simply because "play money" debts could never could be actually paid, however willing, or powerful the fool who attempted to carry out such an intrinsically hyper-inflationary bail-out.

The reason for that paradox is elementary.

Those kinds of debts created by these so-called "bail-outs" could never be repaid since they are, intrinsically, fraudulent debts, intrinsically unsecured debts which are represented by the proposed bail-outs of what are, at the end of the day, purely fictitious gambling debts; they are debts which represent no corresponding, intrinsically physical form of either present or future, actually physically efficient form of economic value.

In this paradoxical situation, Glass-Steagall would have two most notable effects. It will wipe out those fictitious debts, which are merely "gamblers' debts;" the gambler has lost the nominal value of a debt for which no present or future wealth would, or could be actually created. Glass-Steagall would solve this paradox, as President Franklin Roosevelt had overcome the lunacies of Presidents Coolidge and Hoover in 1933, which he did, by a single stroke of our Federal Constitution's already existing, intrinsic law. Glass-Steagall now, as then, would thus clear the way for refinancing the states and their principal communities which had been looted under the policies of Presidents Bush and Obama, and would serve as the basis for the launching of the greatest physical-economic recovery program ever conceived by man, NAWAPA.

The hard fact remains, that either those mere gambling debts are to be written off for the purely fictitious "gambling debts" they are, or there will be no United States, but a lot of very, very dead Americans. The means to stop this are available; they are called "Glass Steagall, or also named "NAWAPA."

The British Argument

It is necessary to emphasize here, that I acknowledge that any survival of the U.S. economy, would mean the general bankruptcy of that already hopelessly bankrupt, so-called "Inter-Alpha Group," aka "BRIC," a grouping which forms the present financial-monetarist basis for the British monetarist empire-in-fact. This is a monetarist system which has ruled over Europe, during most of the periods since the formation of the Roman Empire, the empire which was launched by the concert of Octavian and the priests of the cult of Mithra, in their negotiations on the Isle of Capri.[1] The British empire of today still exists as of yore, as the present incarnation of that legacy of the maritime system of financial empire established by Rome at Capri, as continued through the reigns of the monetarist systems of Byzantium, of the old Venice system, and of the New Venetian system of those followers of what is properly known as the "New Venetian Liberalism" of Paolo Sarpi, a scheme which secured the turn of the English throne into what was turned a British empire with the invasion of England by the "New Venetian Party's" William of Orange.

It has been, chiefly, the threatening British objection to a U.S. re-enactment of Glass-Steagall, which has threatened to block the Obama White House's willingness to give lackey-like elements in the U.S. Congress permission to vote up the otherwise popular demand for a restitution of the 1933 Glass-Steagall law. Therefore, it is necessary to state clearly the conditions under which not only the United States, but even the United Kingdom's own economic survival will depend upon the great reform which depends on restoring Glass-Steagall conditions.

The British Bankruptcy

If all the banks of Britain and its like were to be caused to vanish in a grand flop on the next morning, Britain would be better advised to learn its lesson, than to block a Glass-Steagall revival. We must suggest, most strongly, that the United Kingdom should now come to its senses in this matter.

What if all the banks of the United Kingdom, and also the "BRIC" are wiped from the scene, would the United Kingdom itself need to die, too? Could it not survive, albeit in the more modest and much more appropriate role as a sovereign nation-state minding its own nation's business, rather than its long-standing, but deplorable present habit, of meddling in the troubles of others (troubles which it did much to cause, as contributed by the case of the unfortunate British lackey George Soros)? A salvaged set of U.S.A.-style commercial banks could be created, by international agreement, to protect and promote the general welfare of citizens of a republican United Kingdom just as Glass-Steagall protects our own United States. If not the United Kingdom, or, if so desired, a pair of neighboring sovereigns such as Scotland and England.

The British influence on a problematic President such as Barack Obama, is not to be tolerated any longer as a legitimate expression of the functions of a President or a U.S. Congress of the United States. So, what if the leading financial speculators of the world go belly-up financially; the human species will have lost less than nothing, and might find consolation in a form of security provided by the honest employment which we will encourage be afforded as decent opportunities, instead of the international drug-trafficking and usury which the United Kingdom has maintained over now more than two centuries, as the British monarchy has shown such stubborn affinities up to present-day role in Afghanistan.

Glass-Steagall: How Our Constitution Works

To understand our Federal Constitution's economic provisions for a crisis of the present type, there are two most crucial points in our history which demand the leading attention of all among our actual patriots at this moment.

The first is, that the precedent for our U.S. Federal Constitution, is to be located within the implementation of that originally uttered Royal Charter which launched the Massachusetts Bay Colony as a sovereign entity under the authority of the English Kingdom at that time. This charter was employed by the leaders of the Colony, such as the Winthrops and Mathers, as the authority for the creation of a credit system for the Massachusetts colony, rather than a monetarist system of the European type then, as now, still today.

That constitutional principle is not a matter of merely ordinary law; it is the expression of a universal physical principle, a truly constitutional quality of principle on whose observance the continued existence of our republic now absolutely depends. To oppose that principle, is to attempt to destroy our republic by means which would be tantamount to treason; in this case, it would be submission to the will of a foreign power, the international drug-trafficking British Empire since the 1790s, which is precisely the intention behind President Nixon's cancellation of the Bretton Woods agreement at the urging of such as Arthur Burns, George Shultz, et al., acting under the failed President Richard Nixon, at that time.

The historical evidence is, that the cancellation of the Massachusetts colony's sovereign powers, essentially as by the New Venetian Party's tyrant William of Orange, left the London-betrayed tradition of the economic policy of Massachusetts, one to be continued by successors such as the former Boston man, Benjamin Franklin, who presented the utterance of a paper currency as the proposed instrument of a credit system, and the man who became the virtual author of our republic.

The second principal consideration, is that the immediate authority for the credit policy of our U.S. Federal Constitution, as opposed to a monetary policy, came into being through Hamilton's initiative on this account, an initiative which served as the cornerstone for crafting the entirety of the design of our original Federal Constitution.

Today, Hamilton's role in the crafting of that Constitution has become a rarely known story; yet, as a matter of practice, it is of cardinal importance for any U.S. citizen today, or, therefore, for any person intellectually competent to hold Federal office still today. Unfortunately, few elected officials of our republic have competent knowledge of this central feature of principle in the design of our constitutional republic. Therefore, the essence of this crucial matter must be spelled out here, as follows. Our nation's life, and perhaps your own, depends upon the citizen's adopting the fact of this knowledge.

It must be emphasized here and now, that there is a difference between a mere ordinary law, and a law premised upon a demonstrably truthful expression of a principle of nature, a demonstrable principal of what is properly conceived to be constitutional law, rather than a merely customary principle of law, as the latter inferior, regrettable notion of law is typical of the parliamentary traditions of Europe thus far. The notion of the German constitutional court is a notable case of an implied attempt to maintain that distinction respecting ordinary law-making and a fundamental principle of law implicitly embedded in our own Federal Constitution. The argument presented by Alexander Hamilton, shows the meaning of that distinction of true principle from merely a more or less arbitrary caprice in legislating in law, a distinction from that which, quite clearly, corresponds to the proven virtues of actual historical experience of mankind's best nature, such as that which inspired the original colonists of Massachusetts, prior to the invasion of the British Isles by the so-called "Liberalism" of the imperial New Venetian Party's William of Orange.

Hamilton's argument for the existence of a Federal Constitution is fairly summarized in effect as follows.

The Setting of Hamilton's Principle

The victory of the United States over the British imperial tyrant, was accomplished with the aid of the leading nations of continental Europe at that time. France was the leader in providing this assistance. The kingdom of Spain then joined France in the role as an ally of our United States. In addition, powerful forces, headed by the role of Russia's Catherine the Great in the League of Armed Neutrality, together with the conscience of many in the British Isles, all joined in aid of the cause of our struggle for liberty, which was seen by them as their cause for freedom from the rapine inherent in the outcome of that Seven Years War which had been unleashed through the schemes which that New Venetian Party of England, and the Netherlands, had already ensconced in England during the reign of William of Orange.

However, from the time of the role of the British East India Company's Lord Shelburne in the launching of the British Foreign Office, from 1782 onwards, Britain was enabled to replay the kind of role in Europe which history witnessed in the run-up to the French Revolution and those Napoleonic wars which were orchestrated as an echo of the model of the British East India Company's orchestration of the so-called "Seven Years War" of 1756-1763.

Once Napoleon had been chastised with the defeat of his attempted invasion of Egypt and the Levant, Napoleon changed wives, dumping the Josephine associated with the pro-Ottoman alliance against the Habsburgs, and was given a Habsburg princess as a wife instead. Napoleon, thus married to a new fate, then led the wars throughout Europe, which wrecked France and continental Europe, all done to the not exactly kindly intentions of that British monarchy and Prince Metternich who created the infamous peace which imperial London and Metternich imposed at Vienna upon a defeated set of the nations of Europe. As former Chancellor Bismarck had foreseen on the verge of World War I, that war, would be, as Napoleon's rape of continental Europe had been, "a new Seven Years War."

Do not ridicule the French on account of King Louis XVI's, and the Emperor Joseph II's foolish reactions to the British Foreign Office-orchestrated affair of "the Queen's Necklace." We of the United States, sometimes repeated exactly the same mistake which most of Europe had made in the so-called "Seven Years War" of 1756-63, and France in the Napoleonic wars. We did so in the regrettable Polk's own Mexican war, and in our own lunatic plunge into a virtual decade of useless, bleeding war in Indo-China, following that assassination of President John F. Kennedy which prepared the way for the U.S. entry into the prolonged Indo-China war against which both President Kennedy and General Douglas MacArthur had warned.

The Soviet Union made the same mistake in its sucker's move into Afghanistan, which became the downfall of the Soviet system, and we have made the same mistake, again and again, as under the corrupt influence of Britain's perennially lying Prime Minister Tony Blair in the 2003 launching of an Iraq War which has not really ended yet, but is merely on the road to a new war of British concoction, the war through which the United States would follow the former Soviet Union's precedent, by defending the British opium traffickers in Afghanistan, with the prospect of a new regional war yet to be set off, with British instigation, and the Obama Administration's convoluted consent, against Iran.

So, the British empire uses such puppets as former Prime Minister Tony Blair's nasty, current favorite, the narcissistic and vicious President Barack Obama!

From the time of the fall of France into the Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars, our United States' very continued existence remained in peril until the surrogate victory over the British enemy led by President Lincoln and both the Lincoln Administration's end of the British system of slavery and the launching of our United States to its greatest accomplishments on a world scale. Under President Lincoln and his legacy, our United States emerged as the greatest, virtually continental nation which the world had seen since the qualified precedent of the work of Charlemagne in the development of the continent of Europe for as long as he had lived.

So, there we were, when the decline of France over the interval 1782-1789, brought us from a state of cautious triumph as a republic, into the time of the peril which the French Revolution expressed. Our former hero, Thomas Jefferson, went essentially mad, during this time, as did other leaders who, like Jefferson, returned to their senses during the times of President Monroe's and John Quincy Adams' leadership of our republic. It was in this process of that interval, 1782-1789, that the genius of our great republic had showed itself, a genius expressed by the creative insight of Alexander Hamilton in his own time, an insight which led into the principle used for the creation of our Federal Constitution.

Hamilton's Principle as Such

The once-victorious states of the United States, once the victory over the British had been secured, had found themselves buried in a war-debt incurred by the respective former colonies. Hamilton's genius saved the United States, as the same principle, expressed by the re-enacted Glass-Steagall law of 1933, would save our United States, again, today—if we acted to force through that reform, whatever that requires, immediately, now.

By creating a Federal Constitution, one designed under the great guiding, inviolable principle of the present Federal Constitution's general welfare clause, all of those elected officials who oppose that constitutional principle affirmed as the Preamble of that Constitution, are morally obliged either to change their opinion, or leave office out of a desire not to pollute our government with their unwholesome, misguided opinions.

Hamilton's turning our United States to national banking under a credit system, rather than a European type of monetarist system, provided the solution, a unique solution which sometimes influenced both European and some American states, in particular, but which rose to a more outstanding degree of durable quality than other leading nations to the present date. On that account, since 1776, the British empire has sought to subvert and destroy us, from that time to the present day of the anglophile corruption expressed by such putative protégés of the most regrettable, lying, former Prime Minister Tony Blair as President Barack Obama.

That principle of a credit-system, emphasized by Hamilton, rather than a typically European monetarist system, is the credit principle, a principle directly counterposed to the monetarist principle which was established as that principle of usury of the Roman Empire which is continued by the present British empire, and tolerated, still, among most of the nations of Europe and elsewhere, still today.

That principle is also a moral principle, enshrined against that principle of monetarist usury which has been employed to wreck our republic, as has been especially notable since President Nixon's implicitly treasonous, great criminality of August 1971.

The principle is elementary. It is the principle of the Pine Tree Shilling of the original Massachusetts Bay Colony. Honest debt to the future can be paid only through honest creation of future physical and equivalent wealth, including the development of the relevant creative powers of the individual citizen and also the children and adolescents of those families.

Such debts of a credit-system must be paid by the fruitfulness of future production, as this principle was already understood by the Winthrops and Mathers of the original Massachusetts colony. Such debts require that the government delimits such accumulations of debt to the efficient commitment to promote that production. Such debt can be lawfully incurred only by a decision premised on a reasonable expectation of the relevant creation of the increased physical wealth, and of the increased physical productivity of the nation. Debts incurred on the account of financial speculation are not legitimate debts of a government.

This describes, in rather plain language, Alexander Hamilton's great principle as embedded in the subsuming intent of the Preamble of our Federal Constitution.

Debts are good, when they are designed to be made good, as by a credit system based on a commitment to increase the creation of net wealth per capita, and per square kilometer of the territory of a nation. The famous Saugus Iron Works typifies the genius of successes which horrified the more backward, and often useless souls reigning jealously over England at that time.

In practice, the success of the United States' economy has always lain, chiefly, in the production of those public works through which the increase of the physical productivity of the nation is effected, as it is measurable per capita and per square kilometer of territory. No true republic was ever a mere collection of parts; but is the summoning of diversity to the effect of an intended greater and better unity.

Principal incidences of violations of that principle are notable for the case of the corrupt "environmentalist" policies of the Confederacy-inspired President Theodore Roosevelt, the trained nephew of a Confederate spy, James Bulloch, who had worked for Britain from London. There is the kindred corruption of flagrant Ku Klux Klan backer and U.S. President Woodrow Wilson. There are kindred evidences against the similarly perverse views of Presidents Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Harry S Truman, Richard M. Nixon, and Presidents George H.W. Bush, Vice-President Al Gore, and Presidents George W. Bush, Jr., and the virtually would-be "Emperor Nero" of his time, Barack Obama.

The entirety of the Federal Constitution rested upon that single conception which echoed the precedents set by such as the Winthrops and Mathers of the Seventeenth-century Massachusetts Bay Colony, under the Pine Tree Shilling, as revived to be part of our Federal Constitution through the influence of Cotton Mather's young protégé Benjamin Franklin and Franklin protégé Alexander Hamilton. Call it the legacy of President Franklin Roosevelt, who was the fully witting descendant of Alexander Hamilton's ally, Isaac Roosevelt, who had been the founder of the Bank of New York established in opposition to the Manhattan Bank of the traitor and British agent of Lord Shelburne's Foreign Office lackey Jeremy Bentham, the de facto traitor, assassin, and former U.S. Vice-President Aaron Burr.

The Remedy, Our Recovery

If we simply cancel the mistakenly presumed obligation to pay the worthless debt represented by the operations led by former J.P. Morgan agent and later Chairman of the Federal Reserve System, Alan Greenspan, and Greenspan's muddled follower, Ben Bernanke, at the Fed today, we will be doing nothing different respecting principle of practice than President Franklin Roosevelt did in the 1933 promotion of that original Glass-Steagall law which saved the United States from Hell at that time, and which also served as the beacon of our national financial and related economic stability until the swindle of the Alan Greenspan-steered repeal of Glass-Steagall in 1999.

That simple action of a Glass-Steagall revival now, will save the United States; any failure to resume that 1933 legislation will doom the United States to a very early general destruction. Those who choose one or the other option, earn the praise or hatred of the present citizens and their families of the United States accordingly.

The debts known by such names as Alan Greenspan's concoction of "financial derivatives" are nothing different than "gambling debts." They are to be treated as such. The assumption of such forms of debt is contrary, pure and simple, to the clear intention of the Preamble of the Federal Constitution.

Freeing the United States' government of the grip of those essentially fictitious financial obligations to Wall Street, London, et al., immediately frees our Republic of that burden. The urgently needed recovery of the U.S. economy can, then, begin an initially slow and cautious, but accelerating rate of physical economic recovery to health and wealth, and to the halting of presently accelerating, global entry into hyperinflation, all done from the moment the implementation of the original, 1933 Glass-Steagall law is put into operation.

That return to the 1933 Glass-Steagall law, is the single decision on which even the mere continued existence of these United States now depends, on which your own personal existence now depends, in fact. Any member of the legislature who has any different immediate intention, is being worse than a useless waste of time, and should, perhaps, either reform, or turn himself, or herself in, for a more appropriate opportunity in employment.

II. Glass-Steagall's Effects

The virtually instantaneous effect of the re-enactment of the original 1933 Glass-Steagall Act, is to rescue the Federal states of the United States from a presently accelerating slide down the chutes into otherwise virtually inevitable social-economic Hell. The "bail-out" of Wall Street and London ends, thus, with the restoration of the essential functions of the governments of the Federal states. We shall not sacrifice the citizens of our states on the altar of a Wall Street, or London's Baal, as President Barack Obama has done even far worse, thus far, than the wretched President George W. Bush. Jr. before him.

The ability to sustain the needed full measure of a recovery of each among the states, depends, in large part, on the "multiplier" effect of increasing the amount of Federally promoted employment-incomes within the economy of each of the states. Every person so employed, spends the income so promoted in expanding the market within the state's economy, and in the freeing of our nation of the direct and other, actually enormous costs of the breakdown of state and local society under the wrongful, post-August 2007 policies of Presidents George W. Bush, Jr., and Barack Obama, thus far.

While all that is necessary must be done, it not sufficient to repair the ability to sustain the benefits which must be returned to the Federal states. The productivity of each of the states now depends desperately upon a combination of Federal assistance and the general increase of the productivity within each and all of the states. The ruin of the states by the Presidencies of George W. Bush, Jr., and Barack Obama represents a degree of incompetence by those Presidents which is tantamount to treason in its effects. For the broader purpose, we require large-scale, long-term, science-driven and related investments in major public works of long-term development, works which raise the level of capital intensity and higher energy-flux-densities of applied sources of power across all of the states of the Union.

You need cuts? Cut the "bail out"! How? Simple! Restore the original Glass-Steagall of President Franklin Roosevelt. Otherwise, our President is behaving as a traitor, a mentally ill person, or, a lunatic, in effect. The remedies for our distress exist in relevant changes in policy which begin with scrapping virtually everything done by both the Bush and Obama administrations since the end of August 2007.

Whereas, the brilliantly successful launching of the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) serves as a model of reference for the needed increase of the well-being within and among the Federal states, we had, prior to and during the 1964-1975 U.S. warfare in Southeast Asia, the avowed 1964 intention, under President Lyndon Johnson then, to follow the intended conclusion of that war with the launching of what was known as NAWAPA, which would have solved all of the major, long-term power and water problems of not only the western states of the U.S.A., Mexico, and Canada, but which would also have saved those territories from the awful depletion and destruction of those and associated regions of North America as a whole.

President Johnson is not to be blamed over-much for his conceding to the pressures for the folly of Indo-China warfare against former U.S. ally Ho Chi Minh.

Those policies which misled the United States into its Indo-China war, had been launched by the British empire, in a moment of opportunity, following the death of President Franklin Roosevelt. The British Foreign Office released the Japan soldiers then being held as prisoners of war, to resume their arms and to occupy Indo-China until the time the British empire would bring French occupation forces back to take over the former colony.

At the bottom of this business in Southeast Asia, the responsibility of the atrocity of sending our forces to die in the 1960s and early 1970s Indo-China war, lies with the role of those who composed, or merely supported the notorious "Warren Commission" which celebrated its British triumph over the assassination of President Kennedy. This deed was done in a way which must be marked down in history as the treasonous development which brought our republic into a state of ruin through a war which only the assassination of President Kennedy had made possible.

President Johnson was plainly terrified by the implications of the Warren Commission "cover-up."

Our Future: NAWAPA

This entirely feasible NAWAPA project will, among its numerous excellent effects, not only restore the presently endangered and increasingly wasted, western states of the United States, but it will become the precedent for the remedying of the desertification and kindred waste-land effects of entire regions of the continents of Eurasia, Africa, and South and Central America. NAWAPA, for example, is fully designed in all its general features, to serve as a model for other great projects in Africa such as the Transaqua restoration of the region of Lake Chad, and for the realization of certain developments of Siberia which are of strategically crucial importance for the future of large and other nations to the south of Russia, including China and India.

Essentially, this prospect means that we are becoming the real United States, once more, as Franklin Roosevelt had intended for a planetary group of respectively sovereign nations sharing a great common interest, once the so-called "Second World War" had been brought to its necessary close.

Of this, there is much more to be said on this occasion.

To realize the implementation of a great project such as NAWAPA, beginning now, compels us to put the Northeast region of our United States, also, back into full production, as much as the directly relevant western part of the North American continent. The former automobile-industrial and related regions of the Northeast and central states of the United States must build the systems needed to supply the great NAWAPA program with a great part of its own efforts. The skilled, but now unemployed machine-tool operatives, and others, who have been lately cast into the ruins of once great, productive states of the United States, must return to duty, to build the modern forms of rail, magnetic-levitation and other systems, needed in the eastern states of our region, to fulfill the great hunger of the NAWAPA and associated projects. That will be sufficient not merely to restore our national economy; we must launch leaps in progress of a type not seen since the death of President John F. Kennedy's inspiration. NAWAPA provides us the largest chunk of the policy needed to do just that.

It is fairly estimated, based on the original Parsons estimate for the mid-1960s, that four millions jobs will be created in rapid pace for NAWAPA itself. However, the need to supply support for the installation of NAWAPA will demand an additional two millions or more new employment among such states as those from New England to St. Louis, in such forms as new railway systems, magnetic-levitation systems (especially for carrying heavy loads up to as much as five thousand feet), and the proliferation of productive employment in industries generally, all as stimulated by the markets created by NAWAPA.

This will also reverse the drying out, presently in an advanced degree, of the watersheds of the Plains states and other grievous such shortfalls, through the increase of rainfall patterns across the continent, and will lead, in other respects, to the conquest of desert regions generally, thus creating a more moderated climate, and an increase of the territory available for habitation and employment.

A short-term perspective for six millions new industrial and related jobs is a fair minimal prospect for the perspective based on NAWAPA. If we add return to an earlier nuclear power policy, the increased number of productive jobs caused by these measures, alone, would be seven millions.

The urgently needed reform of our national economy, away from Wall Street and kindred, purely wasteful speculation, into forms of occupations less suited to the higher apes, and more to the stimulated, creative mental-powers of our productive citizens, is the only presently available alternative to what would be, immediately, a plunge of the planet in its entirety into a global dark age worse than that which Europe experienced, as a result of Wall Street-like, Venetian speculation, back during the latter part of Europe's Fourteenth Century.

III. TVA & NAWAPA: An American Tradition

In certain crucial respects, the launching of the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) under President Franklin Roosevelt, typifies a principle which was reflected in the Parsons firm's perfected design for NAWAPA. It reverses the policy of economic waste and rot which that nephew-of-a-British-spy, President Theodore Roosevelt, imposed upon the United States, a dirty duty done by that Roosevelt's dirty British trick of forbidding any rational progress in the development of the U.S.A.'s western lands beyond the twenty-inch rainfall line.

The most notable fact about this, is that Theodore Roosevelt was expressing the same treasonous intention for the United States which is currently the official policy of Britain's frankly pro-genocidal World Wildlife Fund.

At that point, competent economic science intervenes in protest against such mass-homicidal nonsense as that.

The fact of the matter is, that human existence on this planet has depended upon drawing down a finite resource of mineral and other deposits left behind by, chiefly, forms of life from very long ago. As we deplete such relics of former types of life, the relative physical cost of employing that resource rises. This challenge, which is inherent in the role of life generally, has a particular significance for the case of human life. This means, in general, that the effective energy-flux density of human action, per capita and per square kilometer, must be increased, to more than offset the relative depletion of resources left behind by forms of life earlier. This means that the concentration of power, per capita and per square centimeter cross-sectional flow, must be increased constantly through scientific and related progress.

This requirement can be satisfied, in a general way, only through increasing the relative energy-flux density of the sources of heat-power being utilized. So, mankind had now reached the point in this process that national economies can not continue to be maintained without increasing emphasis on nuclear-fission as a standard resource for power of nations per-capita and per square kilometer of territory. Indeed, we are presently entering the phase at which increasing reliance on thermonuclear fusion must tend to predominate, as we see such trends in China now, and, also in India.

In the meanwhile, we are now approaching the still-higher stage of cultures at which we must acquire and employ still higher forms of the equivalent of "heat-power." Reducing the size of the population is not a solution; indeed, since the complexity of higher forms of power requires an increased number of the educated human population, there is no sane policy for mankind but that of rising to successively higher levels of the equivalent of energy-flux densities. Indeed, mankind is now nearing the stage at which the role of mankind in nearby Solar space will necessarily increase for scientific and other technological reasons.

I mention this here, because the implications of the NAWAPA program include emphasis on mankind's dependency, here, down on Earth itself, upon processes which we presently know to be associated with functions which are located essentially within not only our Solar System, but in effects on life on Earth which are governed directly by long-term processes of our galaxy. NAWAPA's development brings us into many experimental matters which are of great significance, but which are also located essentially beyond the range of life on Earth as such.

We have entered a time, now, when, for science today, human life is located functionally in such larger terms of reference. The processes which confront us in our achievements in the design of the NAWAPA project, will become the principal process of transition toward mankind's adaptation to relevant actions of management of our planet's nearby space.

For example, the development of NAWAPA brings such nations sharing the polar region, as the United States, Canada, and Russia into sharing a common destiny in the need to explore the implications of the Arctic region to great advantage for the planet as a whole, that in a way which has been barely scratched so far. Similarly, the exploration of this region brings us to place a new degree of emphasis on the implications of cosmic radiation as a crucial aspect of life on Earth, including our own nation's.

In short, with the advent of NAWAPA, we are going far beyond the implications of the TVA into dealing at close range with cosmic challenges to science and economy beyond anything customarily considered in the world up to this present time. The discovery of a North America beyond Eurasia, has effects which share the experience of the John Quincy Adams, one-time Secretary of State, President, and senior member of Congress, who played a leading role in defining our republic, from Atlantic to Pacific as a single continental power reaching across the Pacific toward our naturally destined partnership with Asia as also "Old Europe." Today, the promotion of the development of those resources of Siberia needed for the development of such populous nations as China and India, when taken together with the natural partnership among sovereign nation-states, across the Pacific among Russian Siberia and the United States and Canada, defines the future destiny of our United States to an increasingly large degree. The tunnel through the Bering Strait into Russia, from Alaska, becomes inevitable, and, on this account the relations within Asia are changed in a related way.

Together, we, China, Russia, and India, will be leaders among the nations rising from the Pacific partnership for such common missions as those of the development of the Moon.

We must define our national destiny as a commitment to breed and educate the generations among these nations which will find our cooperation in nearby space-ventures, as not merely cooperative, but inevitable. NAWAPA unleashed, will represent a development of such sheer power for development, that it will be the fulcrum that takes us, by inspiration, to the skies above. We must adopt this as nothing less than our natural destiny to be shared with our partners across the Pacific, and also among all of us here, and the future on the Moon.

Once NAWAPA were developed so, no American child would ever dream of less than such achievements as those of mankind's more notable entry upon the stage of nearby Solar space.

Therefore, we share a great destiny so placed before us; let us resolve that from this advance in our human condition, we of the United States shall never again retreat from a standard of progress and improvement of the general welfare, as our nation had tended to do since the death of President Franklin Roosevelt.

The first chapter of Genesis teaches that man and woman are made equally in the likeness of the Creator. Let it be so for all of us now. Let us never retreat from that devotion, from that image of the nature and sanctity of the purpose of the life of each human individual. Let it be now. We, as a nation, have a special dispensation to make it so for all throughout this world as a whole. Let us do the wonderful things we have been designed, as a species, to do. Let the presently descending nightmare upon our republic, and also the world, be taken away from us now, taken away by the power of willful choice awarded to us, especially that which was intended, since the time of the Massachusetts' Winthrops and Mathers, as our destined special contribution to the future cause of that community of sovereign nation-states known as humanity.
