How Donald J. Trump Might Cause Serious Internal Damage  in Democrat Ranks 


January 19, 2022 --

It has become obvious, one year after peacefully leaving the presidency while remaining subject of a bizarre second "impeachment," that Donald J. Trump is still very much on the minds of Democrats, their Never Trump allies, and their media megaphones. 

Does a day pass without an attack on the former president from a Democrat and/or a media story of column?   

Democrats, remain fixated on Mr. Trump, lest he return to the Whie House, January 20, 2025.  The primary focus of Democrats is not on problems of governance but on the problem, to them, of government -- returned to the hands of a man who, by his next campaign, would have  learned a great deal of  the ways of the deep state.

With the passage of a year since his presidency, Mr.. Trump has continued to preoccupy the political mindset of the Democrats.  He has, in short, remained an obsession to the Democrats who continue to seek out ways and means to prevent a second Trump presidential term. Stated differently, Trump Derangement Syndrome continues without let-up among Democrats and their fellow Trump-haters in the media and among the decreasing numbers of Bush-GOPers.

And so a delicious thought has occurred to LPR.  What if Democrats, Never-Trump folk, the media, the deep state prepared an anti-Trump propaganda campaign that made the Russia hoax look like a tea party -- and right after the midterm congressional elections, this November,  Donald J. Trump issued a statement declining  a second term, and announcing his support for  Mike Pompeo as the Republican nominee for  president, 

The statement would remind voters that Mr. Pompeo graduated first in his 1986 West Point class and, accordingly, could be relied upon to cure the disease of Woke-ism that is sapping not only the strength, but the common sense, of the military establishment.  As a true conservative, Mr. Pompeo would be relied upon to restore the effective domestic policies of the Trump presidency that, among other things, had licked inflation, and given the country prosperity at levels never before seen. 

And as a  successful secretary of state for President Trump, Mr. Pompeo could be relied upon to restore America's standing as light among nations,  counterweight to encroachment by the Chinese along the Pacific perimeter, architect of a rational policy towards Russia, and obstacle to the nuclear arms ambitions of Iran.

LPR expects that the Trump-hating Democrats and their camp followers would be utterly confounded to the point of apoplexy by such an announcement. 

It would, after all,  deprive them of their  obsession to grind Donald J. Trump into the dust of a mind-boggling mean-spirited campaign. 

Indeed, one can imagine the Trump-haters reacting in outrage, moaning:  "He can't do this to us, when we had our base ready to bundle millions of votes, mail-in and otherwise, to defeat him a second time." 

The follow-up comment:  "How can we fire up our base against a...Mike Pompeo?"    

The Trump statement would promise his continued interest in the conservative populist cause of Making America Great Against and, with that in mind,  would suggest  Gov. Kristi Noem for vice president, with Mike Pence as secretary of state, and  Gov. Ron DeSantis as attorney general. Given Mr. Pompeo's military career, Mr. Trump would defer to him on the choice for defense secretary -- and given Mr. Pompeo's experience as Member of Congress, the House Republican leadership could, under a Pompeo presidency, undergo some reshuffling.  

To borrow from a comment made by Richard M. Nixon after his defeat in the 1962 California gubernatorial race:  What will Democrat do when they no longer have Donald J. Trump to kick around anymore?  Direct their lie-filled venom against Mike Pompeo?  In that regard, they won't even have a choir to preach to.


This article, at The Hill, appeared January 17, after LPR suggested that Donald J. Trump would bollux the Democrats by announcing he would not seek the presidency in 2024, tossing his support to Mike Pompeo.   

This report at The Hill, on Democrats effectively seeking a second impeachment of citizen Trump, would, LPR is convinced, really place the left in a Trump tizzy if he stepped aside, 2024, in favor of Mr. Pompeo. 

What, after all, have the Dems as  issues other than their irrational hatred for Mr. Trump -- along with their left-extremist zeal to run, and ruin,  the lives of the American people?

This movie:



The Command: Colin Firth stars in the unforgettable true story of the K-141 Kursk, a Russian flagship nuclear-powered submarine that sank to the bottom of the Barents Sea in August 2000.

As 23 sailors fought for survival aboard the disabled sub, their families desperately battled bureaucratic obstacles and impossible odds to find answers and save them.

Stars Mathias Schoenaerts, Peter Simonischek, Lea Seydoux, Colin Firth, and Max von Sydow in his last role. Gripping story, marvelous cast.

A "Jan. 6" 2022 report from Breitbart that points to leftist culpability in 2020

January 19, 2022 --

Breitbart reported that Democrats are looking to disqualify President Trump from seeking a second term a second time, now that he leads Biden in one poll, 49 percent to 41 percent.  Here is the link to the Breitbart story by Wendell Husebo.


At least two thoughts come to mind.  First:  the Democrats claim (falsely) that Mr. Trump would undermine our democracy? 

The  second thought is this:  if the Democrats have the chutzpah to try and manipulate the 2024 presidential election to keep Donald J. Trump off the ballot, isn't it more likely that they planned, and schemed, and manipulated the 2020 presidential election to make certain the defeat of President Trump,  the better to protect their hold on government and, therefore, their hold on the economy?

LPR noticed, watching "High Noon" via you tube, January 9, that one of the clocks shown marking time for the arrival of the train bringing Frank Miller to Hadleyville, for his confrontation with Marshal Will Kane, was a Gilbert clock, made in...WINSTED! 

Watch carefully about one hour and nine minutes into the movie.   Having first seen "High Noon" on its original run in 1952, it took LPR 70 years to spot the Winsted connection.

Does Eric Adams Plan to Name Himself Mayor for Life?

January 19, 2022 --

Is that why he signed a New York City law giving the vote in municipal elections to 800,000 non-citizens?  By the way, how will the city's Board of Elections separate voting for state and federal posts from local offices?   The following report, on putting his younger brother in a top police post, is copied and pasted from a New York Post online story, January 10:

Mayor Eric Adams on Sunday defended choosing his brother to serve as a deputy NYPD commissioner, saying he needs someone he can trust to protect him — including from potential threats by white supremacists.

During an appearance on CNN, the new mayor revealed that his younger brother, former NYPD cop Bernard Adams, will be tasked with protecting his safety. 

“Let me be clear on this: My brother is qualified for the position. Number one, he will be in charge of my security, which is extremely important to me at a time when we see an increase in white supremacy and hate crimes,” the Big Apple’s second black mayor said on “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper, when pressed about nepotism and ethics concerns over the appointment.

Merrick Garland v. The Constitution

January 19, 2022 --

Attorney General Garland  marked January 5 2022 as occasion to declare that the Justice Department's hunt for  for  "all January 6th perpetrators"  will continue, thereby undermining his assurance that his department will not play politics with this issue.  Of course, Garland is playing politics with January 6th.  This attorney general who denies civil liberties norms for anyone he  can snare in BIden's anti-democracy net, departed from the "Jan. 6" issue to engage in domestic politics by calling, in effect, for the federalization of state election laws, which, of course, is contrary to the Constitution. 

Here is the part of Garland's January 5, 2022 remarks that indicate his Justice Department has entered into the "political thicket" to maintain leftist hegemony over America for years to come:

In recent years,... the protections of the Voting Rights Act have been drastically weakened. 

The Supreme Court’s 2013 decision in the Shelby County case effectively eliminated the preclearance protections of Section 5, which had been the department’s most effective tool for protecting voting rights over the past half-century. Subsequent decisions have substantially narrowed the reach of Section 2 as well.

Since those decisions, there has been a dramatic increase in legislative enactments that make it harder for millions of eligible voters to vote and to elect representatives of their own choosing. 

Those enactments range from: practices and procedures that make voting more difficult; to redistricting maps drawn to disadvantage both minorities and citizens of opposing political parties; to abnormal post-election audits that put the integrity of the voting process at risk; to changes in voting administration meant to diminish the authority of locally elected or nonpartisan election administrators. 

Some have even suggested permitting state legislators to set aside the choice of the voters themselves.

As I noted in an address to the Civil Rights Division last June, many of those enactments have been justified by unfounded claims of material vote fraud in the 2020 election....

The LPR Take on
McCarthy's Vow to Remove 3 Democrats from House Committees

January 19, 2022 --

Western Journal, January 10, reported a Matthew Boyle interview, for Breitbart,  of House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy,  with McCarthy saying he will remove Reps. Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell from the House Intelligence Committee, and Rep. Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee if the Republicans win a House next November.   


The article included a poll asking readers if they think McCarthy would go through with this plan.  Eighty-eight percent said yes, 12 percent (including LPR) said no.  LPR thinks McCarthy would eventually back down, facing a solid Democratic minority ready to do battle on this issue, including boycotting House sessions and challenging McCarthy in federal court.  The reason the Democrats can get away with kicking a Marjorie Taylor Greene or a Dr. Paul Gosar off their committees is simply because the GOP lets the radical Dems get away with such political war games.  

CONSIDER -- House Republicans cannot even draft a letter declaring President Trump to be  as loyal to the Constitution as a president can be, for the purpose of forcing turncoat Cheney to stop pretending to be a Republican, of her own accord.

How the congressional Republicans seem, in a way, to resemble the PLO

January 19, 2022 --

Abba Eban famously said of the PLO that they never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

The GOP seems never to miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity to stand tall against   the radical left.

Here is a link to Rep. Jim Jordan's sharp rebuke to Pelosi partisan panel chair Bennie Thompson, noting that the select committee is not balanced, tramples on civil liberties, and has already determined the biased result.


Still, LPR wonders why JIm Jordan's signature wasn't followed by about 200 other Republican patriots.

Bills Bury Patriots with Seven TDs …

Bills fans used to Buffalo folding before the New England Patriots had no cause for concern on January 16, when their team shellacked the Patriots 47 - 17 in the AFC's wild card playoff round.  Josh Allen threw five touchdown passes  and passed for more than 300 yards.  The New York City media should cover the Bills as the home state team, but likely won't. The New York Times, for example, gave the Bengals-Raiders game (won by Cincinnati) more space than the Bills-Patriots contest.  Next up for the Bills:  the tough Kansas City Chiefs led by Patrick Mahomes.
