An Important New York Times
Headline to Keep in Mind


June 19, 2022 --

The current hearings of the Jan. 6 Committee to Delegitimize the Republican Party are knee-jerkingly followed by lurid headlines in The New York Times demonizing former President Trump to make certain he cannot run again for president, and preferably will spend the rest of his life in federal prison. But any allegation from this rogue committee comes from a vicious panel spewing political hate speech that is acting like a prosecution (denying due process to Mr. Trump and the GOP), not a law-making body. Even The New York Times acknowledged in its lead story in the February 5, 2022 print edition that Pelosi's witch hunters were akin more to a prosecution than to a congressional body.

The headline for the lead article in the Times, February 6 recognized:


Here is a link to the story:


The online headline for the article, by Michael S. Schmidt and Luke Broadwater, was "Jan. 6 Panel Adopts Prosecution Tactics for Its Investigation." The story began: "The House select committee scrutinizing the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol is borrowing techniques from federal prosecutions, employing aggressive tactics typically used against mobsters and terrorists as it seeks to break through the stonewalling from former President Donald J. Trump and his allies and develop evidence that could prompt a criminal case."

This even as the article grudgingly acknowledged, "The committee has no law enforcement role...."

The hearings amount, of course, to flagrant fouls against our system of fair, representative government committed to liberty, not tyranny, The courts, long ago, should have expedited the legitimate challenges to Pelosi's rogue panel and written finis to the affront to orderly democratic government.

Instead, in the absence of appropriate judicial intervention, Pelosi and her ilk, abetted by the practitioners of putrid political propaganda, continue their campaign of brainwashing the American people to transform a free society into a monolithic entity that gets its inspiration from Orwell's dystopian novel "1984."

It is past time, long past time, for American patriots to point to the "Jan. 6" panel and warn the citizenry: "The totalitarians are coming; the totalitarians are coming."

Two LPR Predictions

June 19, 2022 --

1. If Rep. Liz Cheney loses that August 16 Wyoming House seat primary to Harriet Hageman, Ms. Cheney will land a cushy commentator's spot at one of the media outlets in Washington, D.C., the vast majority being anti-Trump.

2. After the "Jan. 6" inquisition completes its dastardly work, The Wall Street Journal will publish an editorial warning that no committee of Congress must ever again be permitted to ignore its own rules, simple fairness, due process and ordinary decency -- or the phrase "No one is above the law" will lose all meaning, and the words "arbitrary and capricious" will inform official conduct on Capitol Hill, writing finis to the idea of orderly, democratic representative government.

(Note that, hitherto, the Journal has tolerated the workings of this rogue committee, accepting its persecution of former president Trump.)

No Good Will Come of This

June 19, 2022 --

Breibart reported, June 17, that the way, way, way-out lefty Harvard law prof. L. Tribe predicts that Attorney General Garland will indict former President Trump.


If Garland does indict the former president on trumped-up charges, (the pun in unavoidable), LPR expects that Garland would put Mr,. Trump on trial in the deep blue District of Columbia, expecting. speedy conviction by a jury of leftists.

First thing the House of Representatives should do, on gaining a humongous Republican majority next November-- if Garland dares indict Donald J. Trump on false charges -- is impeach this paragon of two-tiered justice.

Liz Cheney Should Be
Called Out for Lying

June 19, 2022 --

The resolution establishing the Jan. 6 House Select Committee provides for a chairman; it does not provide for a vice chair. Please go to this link:


Yet, the media accepts the lie that Liz Cheney is vice chair of this rogue committee.

This Politico story, for example, refers to Cheney a "Vice Chair" of the Jan. 6 House Select Committee.


Politico, along with the rest of the media, should point out that the committee's rules do not provide for a vice chair, and call out committee chair Bennie Thomson and Cheney for lying when they claim Cheney is vice chair of a committee that does not provide for a vice chair.

The LPR Take On the Pelosi-Selected Committee Ratings

June 19, 2022 --


The first, prime-time blanket , television coverage of the Jan. 6 inquisition reportedly drew 20 million viewers, followed by ten million for the second day of this anti-GOP propaganda exercise. Isn't that about equal to the 10-20 million political zealots who believe democracy happens when there is no political opposition?

The Wall Street Journal Falls Prey to Anti-Trump Predators

June 19, 2022 --


The June 11/12 weekend edition of The Wall Street Journal carried a lead editorial, "The Evidence of the Jan. 6 Committee," that does the paper no credit by taking seriously the Trump-hating propaganda spewed by the ex parte House Select Committee (which deserves that appellation for it selected use of "Jan 6." video) on its prime time use of the media, June 9, to attempt at brainwashing the American people to being receptive to the indictment of former president Trump by a Washington, D.C. grand jury, followed by his conviction by a D.C. jury. (A Trump conviction by a D.C. jury would, certainly, be the mirror image of the recent acquittal of political functionary Michael Sussman of lying to the FBI: as a Democrat jury in the capital would acquit an anti-Trump defendant, the evidence notwithstanding; a Democrat jury in the capital would likely quickly convict Mr. Trump of any offense charged by the politicized Justice Department. And let's have a poll on this in Middle America!)

Oddly, the Journal's lead editorial, the past weekend, began with this rational question and answer in the first paragraph:

"Do Democrats want to unfairly besmirch the entire GOP with the Jan 6. disgrace [invidious term], while distracting voters from 8.6% inflation and $5-a-gallon gasoline? Yes." (Actually, this observer saw gas at $5.29.9 and higher in lower Westchester County, N.Y., the evening of June 12 -- a sum totaling gas tank fill-ups in excess of $70.)

Unfortunately, the rest of this editorial took seriously the "evidence" received by the ex parte (that is to say one-sided) Jan. 6 House committee. (By the way, faux Republicans Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, by their compliant membership on this prosecutorial and persecutorial panel, join the rabid Democrats in "want[ing] to besmirch" their GOP colleagues.)

Can there be any doubt that Pelosi's selective [cq] committee goes contrary to the notion that congressional committees are legislative in word, thought, and deed -- not prosecutorial,and not to say zealously unbalanced? Yet in its rush to demonize Donald J. Trump to make sure he cannot ever run again for president, The Wall Street Journal takes no notice of the assault on due process this witch-hunting panel represents.

It is likely reasonable to expect that once the aim is attained of ending Mr. Trump's political career (with a D.C. conviction) the Journal's editorial board will tut-tut that the "Jan. 6" committee must not become a regular feature of partisan politics on Capitol Hill lest government turn capricious and arbitrary.

To read the execrable June 11/12 Journal editorial one would have no idea that there are legal challenges to Pelosi's puppets in the federal courts, challenges from, among others, former Trump aide Steve Bannon and Mark Meadows. (And shouldn't The Wall Street Journal ask why the courts seem to be dragging their heels on this vital complaints?)

These challenges sagely cast doubt on the validity of the creation of this ex parte panel, and the subpoenas issuing therefrom demanding documents and personal testimony. That is top say, testimony before a persecutorial panel that has started out with the effective premise of a guilty verdict by a House committee authorized to take testimony for purpose of legislation, not for criminal conviction.

The Journal should have reminded readers -- and Republican members of Congress -- that the source of anti-democracy sentiment began its campaign against the Trump presidency with the lie of Russiagate, maintained the anti-Trump campaign throughout Mr. Trump's presidency, and, indeed, sought to impeach and remove Mr. Trump as president after his term expired. Yes, Donald J. Trump left office peacefully -- yet the anti-Trump cabal continues the lie that he sought to overturn the 2020 election.

The proper lesson of "Jan. 6" is that the lies hurled at both Mr. Trump and the Republican party, from the anti-democracy cult in our country, not only continue but increase in volume and vituperation. And, now, it may also be said of The Wall Street Journal: "et tu."

There Can Be No Doubt The New York Times Has Abandoned Journalism for Propaganda, and Advocates Tyranny

June 19, 2022 --

LPR commends the attention of its visitors and ALL Americans committed to our democratic principles to the following link to an op-ed piece that appeared in the print edition of The New York Times on June 16, 2022 -- called, in the print edition, "These Companies Are Still Funding Trump's Big Lie Caucus".

The screed was attributed to editorial board member Alex Kingsbury but, arguably, could have been written by any adherent of the anti-free thought mindset at this publication.


The anti-Republican spin is evident in this falsehood, obviously aimed at the GOP, that appears in the fifth paragraph: "[W]hat if a growing faction of one political party isn't committed to the rule of law and the peaceful transfer of power?"

Three paragraphs from the end, Kingsbury makes clear that he is targeting Republicans for extinction based on false accusations against the GOP:

"Not only are Republican lawmakers who refused to certify the [2020] election results still in office; their party is poised to make gains during the midterm elections. Their electoral fortunes represent not only an endorsement from voters who support their efforts to undermine our democracy; they also represent the explicit financial support of hundreds of corporations that pour money into their campaign coffers.'

There is no way to interpret this assault on freedom other than to understand that Kingsbury indicates that the Republican must not make gains in the midterm elections, opposes votes for Republicans from citizens expressing their free political will, and would ban campaign contributions to Republican candidates. This, LPR submits, is the mindset of tyranny.

LPR Recommends the Following Links to two Mahler Masterpieces

June 5, 2022 --

Gustavo Dudamel conducting the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra (made up of young musicians from Venezuela -- Dudamel is a native of Venezuela) in Mahler's Second Symphony, a marvelous performance. at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Maestro Dudamel, in addition to leading the Simon Bolivar young musicians, is music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Paris Opera.

Andres Orozco-Estrada, conducting the Frankfurt Radio Symphony in Mahler's Third, a magnificent performance.

Maestro Orozoco-Estrada just completed eight years with the Houston Symphony Orchestra.

Orozo-Estrada is a native of Colombia.




LPR Recommends...

LPR strongly recommends that visitors click this link to Orozco-Estrada conducting the Frankffurt Radio Symphony in a performance of Brahm's Symphony No. 1 in C minor. This magnificent work has no title in the manner of, say, Mahler's Titan or Resurrection Symphonies. If this work, performed so masterly by Orozo- Estrada leading the Frankfurt orchestra, were to have a title, it should, LPR believes, be Brahms' Majestic Symphony.



FYI -- the link to Maestro Andres Orozco-Estrada's home page

Finally, Julian Assange to be extradited

The Washington Examiner reported, June 17, ,that Julian Assange, of Wikileaks, will be extradited to the U.S.


Will we learn who really leaked those Democratic National Committee tidbits of information in 2016 -- and that claims of Russian hacking were just more disinformation from the Clinton campaign?


Trashing Due Process; aiding the charlatans of democratic government

The following appeared in a CNBC report June17:

"Retired federal Judge J. Michael Luttig, who advised Pence ahead of the Capitol riot, directly accused Trump and his allies of waging a “war on democracy” on Jan. 6, 2021. He called Trump a “clear and present danger” to American democracy."

LPR's view: this retired judge is a disgrace for testifying before the lawless, rules-assaulting "Jan. 6" inquisition, giving aid and comfort to the enemies of due process.
