The Conspiracy Against President Trump

March 19, 2017 --

While it is fashionable in leftist circles to accuse President Trump of “dabbling in conspiracy theories,” let’s not forget the charge of then-First Lady Hillary Clinton, who, January 27, 1998, told Matt Lauer, on NBC’s “Today” show, that there was a “vast right-wing conspiracy” arrayed against her husband, President Bill Clinton.

More recently, Ms. Clinton has promoted claims of a Trump-Putin conspiracy against her presidential candidacy. And it appears that congressional committees, at the demand of the left, are about to open hearings that, basically, from the left’s point of view (accepted by Sen. McCain and other Never-Trumping GOP members of Congress) accuse President Trump of conspiracy – for insisting on becoming president.

LPR wonders if congressional Republicans will have the courage to put this New York Times front page headline, January 20, in the context of an anti-Trump conspiracy: WIRETAPPED DATE/ USED IN INQUIRY/ OF TRUMP AIDES.” First question; why were these aides being wiretapped?

And how about this New York Times front-page headline, March 2: “Obama Officials Raced to Preserve Russian Trail”.

Why, at the very end of the Obama administration, where “Obama Officials, ” according to this report, racing “to spread information about Russian efforts to undermine the presidential election…across the government.”

LPR wonders if congressional Republicans will have the courage to determine that Obama officials artfully ascribed their owb aims vis-à-vis President Trump – to undermine his presidency and, indeed, end it – and turned those aims, publicly, upside down, the better to achieve them.

Leftist anti-Trump moves have gone from the sharply hostile to the merely bizarre, as indicated by the lawsuit brought by the proprietors of a Washington, D.C. wine bar to close the city’s new Trump International Hotel , claiming it is hurting their business. The proprietors want the hotel to close, or to be sold – or have the president resign. LPR is surprised the proprietors simply don’t get leftists to boycott the hotel. Consideringthe huge Democratic registration in the District of Columbia, LPR wouldn’t be surprised if the court orders the resignation of President Trump.
