Jan. 28 (EIRNS)--On the weekly ``EIR Talks'' syndicated radio show today, Lyndon LaRouche declared war against the British Monarchy-led apparatus that has launched the latest assault on the U.S. Presidency through the so-called Monica Lewinsky scandal.

In his interview, LaRouche underscored that the British, working through a longstanding treasonous apparatus inside the U.S. media and political establishment, have escalated their campaign to destroy the Clinton Presidency ``to destabilize the ability of the government of the United States to play a key, effective role in making policy with respect to both the Middle East crisis, secondarily, but primarily, the international financial crisis.''

LaRouche ``named the names'' of the key players in the latest phase of a ``Get Clinton'' campaign that was launched even before the President was inaugurated in January 1993. From the top, the most blatant British Monarchy links to the treasonous assault upon the Presidency run through the Hollinger Corporation and Rupert Murdoch media empires.

The London-based Hollinger Corp., which owns over 100 daily newspapers in the United States, deployed the Sunday Telegraph's self-described MI6 stringer, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, from 1993 to 1997 to Washington, where he played a pivotal role in soliciting Paula Jones's lawsuit against the President; published articles blaming President Clinton for the Oklahoma City bombing--while trumpeting the militias as legitimate secessionists; and penned a constant stream of other libels against the First Family and the President's key advisers.

Rupert Murdoch, owner of the London Times, the New York Post, and Fox TV, has likewise been a leading Crown propagandist for the unending smears against the President, using the tabloid Post to publish the most egregious lies.

Sugar Daddy Mellon Scaife

Richard Mellon Scaife, of the rabidly Anglophile Mellon family, has been the chief money source for a network of rightwing thinktanks and propaganda outlets leading the charge against the President. Whitewater Special Prosecutor Kenneth Starr is himself an important player in the Mellon Scaife stable. He has been promised a lucrative post at the Mellon Scaife-bankrolled Pepperdine University in California, as soon as he finishes his assignment of destroying the Clinton Presidency--and the United States, along with it. Prior to his appointment as Independent Counsel, Starr was doing pro bono legal work against the President in the Paula Jones case.

LaRouche also highlighted the role of the Wall Street Journal and the Moonie Washington Times in the current assault.

Also, the entire latter-day ``Elmer Gantry'' apparatus of fake Christians, led by Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, have been stirring up a modern-day Ku Klux Klan insurrection against the Presidency. LaRouche scored these fake Christians, in his ``EIR Talks'' interview, as a collection of sexually fixated Gnostics whose tradition traces back to the Bogomil pornographic cults of the Middle Ages.

It is no coincidence that both Falwell and Robertson recently threw their public support behind Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's efforts to derail the Middle East peace process, and possibly provoke a hideous new religious war in the region--a longstanding British goal.

Indeed, the nominally ``American'' networks doing London's bidding in this latest assault on the Presidency are, for the most part, throwbacks to the early-1970s Republican Party dirty tricks apparatus--which, not coincidentally, got millions of dollars from Richard Mellon Scaife, and was politically protected by George Bush.

The Bugsy and Meyer Gang

In recent days, much media attention has been rightly focussed on New York City literary agent Lucianne Goldberg, the Svengali who purportedly convinced Bush mole Linda Tripp to begin illegally taping telephone conversations with Monica Lewinsky, in August 1997.

Goldberg, by her own admission, was part of the Nixon dirty tricks apparatus, deployed against George McGovern and the Democratic Party during the 1972 elections. Her handler at the time was Murray Chotiner, a well-known member of the Meyer Lansky/Bugsy Siegel Murder, Inc. crime syndicate, who was once hauled before the McClellan Committee probing the influence of organized crime in America. Chotiner had been the attorney for Bugsy Siegel, and had represented all of the leading figures in the Meyer Lansky syndicate for decades.

Goldberg, through her son, also admitted to having had a relationship with New York City mob lawyer (and former Joe McCarthy chief of staff) Roy Cohn. While the details of her links to Cohn are not yet known, the fact that Goldberg is associated with a collection of rightwing mobsters says a great deal about the moral caliber of the people behind the so-called ``sexgate'' attack on the President.

Linda Tripp, as New Federalist reported last week, the pivotal player in the ongoing effort to bring down the Clinton Presidency, was a Bush ``mole'' who was foisted on the incoming Clinton team through the efforts of several prominent Bush people, including the chief of staff of First Lady Barbara Bush. Tripp concealed her deep hatred of the Clintons to insert herself into the White House staff. She began feeding dirt on the Clintons to Goldberg, and, apparently, to ex-FBI agent Gary Aldrich, as early as 1993.

Shortly after Kenneth Starr was appointed Special Prosecutor, Tripp became a source for that witchhunt, initially providing testimony about the death of Vincent Foster. In the meantime, Tripp was shopping around a proposal for a vicious smear book against the Clintons--through Goldberg.

It is this tightly linked collection of sleazy characters who are doing the British bidding in the latest drive to destroy the Presidency.

White House Counterattack

After a week of near-silence, the White House launched an effective counterattack against the President's detractors on Jan. 26. President Clinton appeared at a White House press conference to forcefully and credibly deny that he had had an affair with Monica Lewinsky, or had told her to lie.

The next day, First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared on NBC-TV's ``Today Show'' to deliver a scathing attack against the rightwing conspiracy to destroy her husband. She singled out Kenneth Starr as a ``politically motivated prosecutor who is allied with the right-wing opponents of my husband,'' and then went even further, warning, ``It's just a very unfortunate turn of events that we are using the criminal justice system to try to achieve political ends in this country.''

LaRouche concluded his ``EIR Talks'' remarks on a similar note. ``The overall purpose of this operation is a sex scandal, which is the British technique, used to divert attention ... and divert effective action away from the real issues of this moment, the issues which will determine the future existence of civilization on this planet, issues not of the distant future, but issues of today.''
