McConnell As Spokesperson
for The Swamp

February 19, 2021 --

Mitch McConnell must be replaced as Republican leader in the Senate -- if the party is to go forward within the Federalist No. 57 mindset, by staying close to the people, as our former president advocated. 

The reason the Swamp reacted in horror to President Trump, certainly from his Inaugural address, is because Trumpism represents government of, by and for the people, not government by the insiders, to the people.

McConnell's denunciation of Mr. Trump, following the vote ending the impeachment farce, reflected, in LPR's view, the Swamp's loathing for our former president because it recognized him as a threat to their aggrandizing grip on our government. 

McConnell and his fellow swampsters must have shuddered in dismay as they heard President Trump say, as he began his Inaugural address:  "What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people."   Opposing this declaration, the Swamp shows that it is the true enemy of our democratic institutions.

The following  observation in Mr. Trump's Inaugural address could only have rankled further McConnell and his ilk:  "For too long, a small group in our nation's capital has reaped the rewards of government, while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth."

And so the Swamp responded to Mr. Trump's first statement as president by deploring it as "dark."   What is "dark" about this statement in the Inaugural: "When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice"?  And what has the Swamp done ever since January 20, 2017 but maliciously and tortiously try to smear Donald J. Triump as a  traitor, a racist, an  anti-Semite, anti-Muslim homophobe.   

Mr. Trump continued, "The Bible tells us, how good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity. We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements, but always pursue solidarity."

What is the approach taken by the Swamp but to  suppress open minds, to stifle free debate, to pursue division to maintain its   grip on government.

Imagine how McConnell and his fellow swampsters must have recoiled in rage as they heard President Trump go on to note, in his Inaugural: "We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining but never doing anything about it. The tije for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action....We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again."  We should steer to course navigated by Prfesident Trump. We must be demoralized by the malicious machinations of Biden and his handlers.

The response from the 74 million (or is it really 80-plus million?) to McConnell, co-chair with Schumer and Pelosi, of Swampsters Anonymous, must be to retain solidarity, to encourage stalwart Republican defenders of liberty, including Rep. Jim Jordan and Sen. Rand Paul, to stay close to us in the true spirit of Federalist No. 57 and, staying close to us, lead us in the fight -- yes "fight" -- to drain the Swamp so that our legacy of liberty on which Trumpism is based, takes a giant step forward in 2022, leading to complete victory over a drained Swamp by January 20, 2025.   

And LPR would invite the impeachment "trial" lawyers, Michael Van der Veen, David Schoen, and Bruce Castor -- who were outstanding in defense of our founding legacy --  to remain active on behalf of all patriotic Americans. (LPR reminds its visitors that prior to the "trial," this site pointed out that the "trial" violated the ban on bills of attainder, set forth in Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution.  It is a disgrace that 57 senators (including seven Republican turncoats) acted in open defiance of the plain language of our Constitution.  It is these 57 senators who are not fit to  hold positions of trust at any level of government in our country.

May the number of these traducers of the Constitution -- 57 --  call attention to Federalist Paper No. 57 which, among other things, declares that tyranny happens when government officials are distant from the people.  And the people must also be wary that tyranny happens when our officials are not faithful to the Constitution.

May the Almighty continue to bless the United States of America with leadership faithful to the tenets of the Founding Fathers.

LPR will not sully itself by dredging up that political obscenity.)
