The Anti-Trump Establishment’s War Against the President Continues


October 19, 2017 --

The anti-Trump Establishment (also known as The Swamp) has intensified its war against the president with a demand from leftist billionaire Tom Steyer, reported in The New York Times, October 12, that Democrats remove President Trump from office if they gain control of Congress in the 2018 election. The following day, The Times reported that Rep. Brad Sherman (D.-Cal.) filed articles of impeachment against President Trump in the House of Representatives, in July, Rep. Al Green (D.Tex.) recently submitted articles of impeachment and Rep. Steve Cohen (D.-Tenn.) plans to do so in the near future.

In The Washington Post, Octob er 15, Rep. Adam B. Schiff, (D.-Cal) suggested that Congress could consider impeachment if special counsel Robert S. Mueller III “finds evidence implicating the president” in what Schiff termed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “campaign…to sow discord among Americans and influence the outcome of the presidential election." Schiff, ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee went on to assert that his committee has “found ample evidence” in support of the assessment of intelligence agencies “that Russia was responsible for hacking our democratic institutions and dumping stolen data in an effort to turn Americans against one another, harm Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump.”

Schiff then explained “we are not at liberty to disclose evidence produced before the [House Intelligence] committee." The congressmen indicated his strong support for “Mueller’s probe” and noted that the special counsel “will determine whether U.S. laws have been violated and, if so, who should be prosecuted….” He added, however, that Congress has “the sole responsibility” of providing the facts to the public, and of prescribing remedies. Mr. Schiff did not, however, call on the FBI to cooperate with congressional committees and respond to congressional subpoenas seeking information about FBI wiretap warrants, among other things.

As The Wall Street Journal stated, in an October 16 editorial, “There is no plausible reason that reason that senior leaders of Congress—who have top-level security clearance—can’t see files directly relevant to the question of Russian election interference.” But the editorial concluded by suggesting that Democrats don’t want the full story of Russia-gate to be told. LPR points to the failure of Rep. Schiff to call for FBI cooperation with House Intelligence committee subpoenas, in his October 15 Washington Post op-ed as clear indication that Russia-gate is part of the Establishment’s war on President Trump.

The Bitterness of George F. Will

October 19, 2017 --

Washington Post columnist George F. Will probably agreed, wholeheartedly, with the title of a David Brooks column, in The New York Times, March 18, 2016: “No, Not Trump, Not Ever”. IN his Washington Post column, October 15, Mr. Will began be referring to Vice President Mike Pence as “Donald Trump’s poodle.” The vice president’s refusal to abide by protests by National Football League players during the playing of the national anthem was termed “too sycophantic” and doing “Trump’s adolescent bidding”.
Will speculated that Republicans will repent their support for President Trump in the manner of “supine American communists “ who became disillusioned with Stalin only the Nazi-Soviet pact of August 1939.

Perhaps, however, Will went too far in referring to White House aide Stephen Miller as “Trump’s 32-year old acolyte.” LPR believes that Mr. Will got to be a Washingtopn Post columnst at about age 33, after serving as editor at National Review. He is now 76, and clearly views with presidency of Dopnald J. Trump with considerable bitterness.

No Estimate Yet on the Dollar Value of the Trump-Hating Columns?

October 19, 2017 --

LPR recalls that media sources claimed that media coverage of the presidential campaign of Donal J. Trump was estimated to be worth…was it two billion dollars. Thus far, LPR is not aware of any dollar value put on the tsunami of anti-Trump columns, editorials, articles, in the media. Certainly this anti-Trump media tsunami makes it clear that there is no diversity of political thought at outlets including The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the television news organizations (with the possible exception of Fox).

The monolithic media mindset of Trump-hate certainly belies claims that the president is a threat to the First Amendment.

Indeed, it is the media’s Iron Curtain barring pro_Trump articles, letters, and columns that should trouble civil libertarians.

Some Advice to Congressional Republicans

October 19, 2017 --

Don't take The New York Times and The Washington Post seriously, along with and the Sunday TV talk Shows (except, possibly for, Chris Wallace at Fox News). All one can expect from the Trump-hating outlets is an ongoing stream of...Trump-hate, a campaign of political bigotry the extent to which our country, probably, has never experienced. Peggy Noonan, ended her October 14/15 Wall Street Journal column by asserting: "Half the country does net see what the journalists, establishment figures and elites of Washington see." Unfortunately, Ms. Noonan cannot understand that what these figures see is a reality distorted by the aggrandizing mindset Madison warned us about at the opening to Federalist No. 57.

Before you think of to supporting The Swamp's War on President Trump, which is really the establishment's war on populism, read the first half of Federalist Paper No. 57, which, in pertinent part, calls for elected officials to represent the people, not lord over them. This important expression of populism opens with implied criticism of those who are "most likely to aim at an ambitious sacrifice of the many to the aggrandizement of the few." This is the aim of politicians who dismiss ordinary Americans as "deplorables."

Congressional Republicans should stand with the president in his campaign to drain The Swamp and revive our legacy of liberty. The New York Times, in a foolish editorial, November 6, 2016, imagined that President Trump would rule as "an ignorant and reckless tyrant...."

Last week , the president acted to encourage Congress to take action to end the harm to health care in American caused by Obamacare, and also to become involved in making the nuclear deal with Iran a better deal for America. Hardly the actions of a tyrannical leader intent on overthrowing our democratic institutions.

And how about the announcement. October 12 that we will leave Unesco because of its "'anti-Israel bias?'" Hard to imagine that kind of announcement coming from a Hillary Clinton administration.

All the Trump-Hate The New York Times Can Print

October 19, 2017 --

The New York Times, October 17 ran just one editorial: "Under Mr. Trump, America Surrenders." This editorial denounced President Trump for, among other things, refusing to certify the Iran deal, threatening to leave Nafta and indicating that the U.S. will quit Unesco because of this UN agency's bias against Israel. For LPR, these moves are consistent with the president's commitment to make America great again.

Republicans should also take note of the Paul Krugman and Michelle Goldberg columns in the October 17 Times, columns that extend Trump-hate to the GOP. Krugman's October 17 column is called "No Party for Honest Men". Goldberg's October 17 rant, "Save the Phony Weinstein Outrage, Republicans" cites the Harvey Weinstein scandals to charge: "The movie business is corrupt, depraved and iniquitous -- and still morally superior to the Republican Party under Trump.

A Chilling Thought

Prof. Stephen F. Cohen, chatting with John Batchelor on the John Batchelor Show, October 10, wondered if there are policy-makers in Washington whose hatred of President Trump is greater than their fear that provocative measures towards Russia could lead to nuclear war.

LPR Applauds Michael Goodwin …

… on his October 15 New York Post column noting the media’s “collective howl of outrage” over actions taken by President Trump to reverse his President Obama’s policies.. Writes Goodwin: The knee-jerk anti-Trump coverage shows that the media didn’t learn anything from its biased performance during the 2016 campaign. It’s still shilling for Democrats, with the left’s political talking points echoed in headlines, articles and broadcasts.” Goodwin concluded, the media’s “version of Groundhog Day is that [Trump] doesn’t belong in the White House, democracy be damned.”
