An Interesting Comment from
Newt Gingrich About the Bidens


August 5, 2023 --

Last month, Newt Gingrich wondered why "nobody" put two and two together about Joe Biden's 2018 boast at a Council on Foreign Relations event that he forced Ukraine to fire the prosecutor investigating corruption at Burisma (which just happened to put son Hunter on its board for more than $80 thousand a month). Here is the text of a report, at Real Clear Politics, of the former speaker's remarks:

"Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Saturday night on FOX News that the latest FBI document released by Congressional Republicans in which a confidential source alleges a "criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Joe Biden and a Ukrainian business executive" should mean that "even The New York Times and The Washington Post are going to recognize that we have a huge problem on our hands."

"He said that this document, in light of President Biden's public comments about his work as vice president in Ukraine, paint a picture of a "criminal family sitting in the White House."

"'I looked at them and said: 'I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.' Well, son of a bitch, he got fired,' Biden said about a visit he made as vice president to Ukraine during remarks to the Council on Foreign Relations in 2018.

"'Why did nobody figure out what a huge deal this is?' Gingrich asked. 'The Democrats impeached Donald Trump over one phone call in which he basically benignly asked Zelensky to check and see if there was corruption with the Ukrainian prosecutor... Meanwhile, you have former vice president and now-President Biden saying publicly, I told them to drop him or you lose a billion dollars. So he is using the taxpayers' money to bludgeon the prosecutor on behalf of a company which is paying his son. This is all out in the open and it is all public.'"

Now look at the text of the July 25, 2019 phone conversation between President Trump and President Zelensky:

"The President: Good because I heard you had a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down and that’s really unfair. A lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your very good prosecutor down and you had some very bad people involved. Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man. He was the mayor of New York City, a great mayor, and I would like him to call you. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General. Rudy very much knows what’s happening and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him that would be great. The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news and the people she was dealing with in the Ukraine were bad news so I just want to let you know that. The other thing, There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it… It sounds horrible to me."

Note, well, that President Trump cited "a lot of talk about Biden's son" and then referred to Biden's CFR "bragging that he stopped the prosecution....

Why didn't anyone else agree, when Mr. Trump declassified the conversation with Mr. Zelensky, that this is "a huge deal?" Most likely, because it was President Trump who put two and two together.

By the time of the phone conversation with President Zelensky, the Despotic Clique had determined to crush Mr. Trump, as indicated by the fraudulent Mueller probe, May 2017 to March 2019,

Note that Mr. Trump was already the president when Biden bragged, in 2018, about getting the Burisma prosecutor fired. Could he have been signaling President Trump just how powerful is the Despotic Clique -- powerful to get rid of a prosecutor, and, also, a president?

How Gov. DeSantis Could Improve His Standing with Registered Voters

August 5, 2023 --

Breitbart, July 26, reported a poll indicating that the popularity of Gov. Ron DeSantis has dropped "to a historic low."


LPR is confident that Gov. Ron DeSantis would vastly improve his standing with Republican voters by suspending his campaign and calling on Republicans to rally round the former -- and future -- President Donald J. Trump, noting that "Mr. Trump has been targeted by Biden/Garland for vindictive persecution by prosecution to destroy effective political opposition to the current occupant of the White House, who presides over the most repressive administration in the history of the Republic."

Gov. DeSantis might add: "President Trump needs a second term to complete the job he set out to do, January 20, 2017 -- to 'drain the swamp' and break the stranglehold of the Despotic Clique on America. I pledge to join him in making a MAGA reality of the idea that we have government of, by and for the people -- not government by insiders to the people.'

From Conrad Black
in the New York Sun:

August 5, 2023 --


"There is no evidence nor any conceivable possibility that Mr. Trump had any thought of a coup. The idea that he had any thought at all of a violent overthrow of government is so fatuous that in any other circumstances except the frequent punctuation of sane political discourse by the faithful geyser of Trump-hate, any people uttering such nonsense would be urged by their friends to seek psychiatric help."

History will acknowledge, however, that "thought of a coup" was very much in the minds of the Deep State insurrectionists who manufactured the phony claim that President Trump was controlled by Russia, and continued to send lies about President Trump into the political atmosphere until they finally succeeded, by hook and by crook, in overthrowing his 2020 bid for re-election and, today, are interfering in the 2024 presidential election by transforming the Justice Department into the political persecution agency of the Despotic Clique.

Apparently it is now up to the House Republican majority to defend the spirit of American freedom from the depredations of the Despotic Clique. May G-d grant that the House GOP is equal to the task.

Political Reality As Noted by
Peter Navarro, His Warning to Democrats, and LPR's Response

August 5, 2023 --


An important column from former Trump aide Peter Navarro was reprinted in Washington Times, July 25. Here are the opening paragraphs:

"Roughly half of Republicans and over one-third of Democrats believe our country is on the brink of civil war. If such an unthinkable war breaks out, it will be the Democrats’ fault.

"In their quest for power, radical elements within the Democratic Party have abandoned any pretense of fairness, tolerance and justice. In their “woke” new world, Democratic strategists use unscrupulous tactics to skew our election system even as weaponized bureaucracies like the Department of Justice, FBI, and National Archives now under Democratic control seek to destroy the Republican Party and its de facto leader, former President Donald Trump.

"For more than 200 years, Americans lived in a world of paper ballots with strict ID and signature match procedures where only legal votes counted. Today, through bends in the law and sleight of hand by Democratic secretaries of state, Democrats have created a “stuff the ballot box” world where absentee and mail-in voting, universal voting, automatic voter registration, drop boxes, ballot harvesting and relaxed signature match procedures have blown open the doors to fraud."

Mr. Navarro goes on to explain how the Democrats' lust for power endangers the fabric of the country and concludes with this warning to the party, in LPR's view, of rigged elections and election interference:

"And do you not understand that the perverse precedents you are creating through your weaponized bureaucracies and 'woke; attacks will come back to haunt you as soon as Republicans take back Mr. Trump’s America from your cold, 'woke' hands?"

On the matter of a vindictive response to Democrats when a Republican is again elected president, LPR would pause, because there is no doubt that a media that backs Biden/Garland's policy of persecution of Mr. Trump by prosecution would howl in outrage were local, state and federal Republican prosecutors to spends tens of millions of dollars indicting Biden and senior Democrats. Indeed, at that point LPR's idea of amending the Former President's Protection Act of 2012 to prevent retaliatory prosecutions of former presidents might draw enthusiastic support from the media and Democrats -- if only to prevent harassment of a Democrat as Democrats harass Mr. Trump.

LPR's Annual Homage to
Camps Wabigoon and Wahanda
on Smith Hill, Winsted, CT

August 5, 2023 --

As this is the beginning of August, the weeks at Camp Wabigoon for boys, and Camp Wahanda for girls, would be dwindling down to the last day of camp: August 26. By the end of July, both camps would be running on routines: sports, dramatics, evening activities, counselor day's off. Inter-camp softball and basketball games would have begun, and the boys' circus would have been held on the last Sunday in July. August would bring the Big Show, the trip to Tanglewood, the girls' circus, Color War, the season-ending banquet when the awards would be announced.

Rather than review, once again, summer at Wabigoon and Wahanda -- how LPR misses the lake where the camps spent 90 degree-days, this hot summer of 2023 -- here is the link to a video taped in connection with a Wabigoon-Wahanda reunion, June, 2019.

Alas, the passage of only a few years has brought with them the passing of some of the former campers shown in the video.

Here, LPR pays tribute to camp directors Phil and Gladys Brandstein, and longtime head counselors Millie Klotz and Saul (Rusty) Grant.


P.S: Here is a link to LPR's 2014 Homage to Wabigoon and Wahanda.

Meet Jesse Wegman, Mean-Spirited Enemy of Liberty

August 5, 2023 --


A Breitbart political story offers a rebuke to the nastiness of Jesse Wegman

Wegman, New York Times, July 27, called House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan "a bad-faith buffoon."

Such a mean-spirited slur can only come from a political hack who holds that the First Amendment only applies to people who promote censorship by the Despotic Clique currently reigning in the White House. A "buffoon" does not call Mark Zuckerberg to account for agreeing to censor conservative speech at the demand of the most repressive administration in our history. LPR urges House Republicans to rally round Dnald J. Trump for liberty's sake.

Not exactly "No one is above the law" from Rep. Nancy Pelosi ...

From Washington Times, July 28:

"'Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California said the only reason Hunter Biden is being targeted is because he is the son of the president.

“'I do think that if he were not the president’s son, he might not have been charged with some of those things in the first place,' said the former House speaker."

LPR's take: If Hunter's last name was not Biden, he wouldn't have been placed on he Burisma (Ukraine) board for a reported $83 thousand a month.


The DC vote for president in 2020 ...

LPR briefly on the Jan. 6 Indictment handed down August 1, 2023, a day that will live in political infamy.

Seems to LPR it smacks of a dictatorship majority in the District of Columbia. The House GOP and the GOP candidates must rally round Donald Trump for liberty's sake.

7/19/2023 -- LPR invites you to participate in our latest poll. We would like your opinion on the following:
1) President Biden leads the most repressive administration since Woodrow Wilson more than 100 years ago, given his treatment of "Jan. 6" political prisoners, his crackdown on "conservative viewpoints," and his persecution of former president Trump. The announcement of a call-up of 3,000 reservists points to more repression in the coming months.
