Will The Middle Class
Defeat the Neo-Feudalists?


July 19, 2016 --

Only recently, LPR noticed the William McGurn column in the Wall Street Journal, February 2, this year, quoting this observation by Ed Goeas, a GOP strategist: “’The middle class believes the rich get the benefits, the poor get the programs, and they [the middle class] get stuck with the bill.’” Wasn’t this the way the Top One Percent, in feudal days, held power: allying with the lowest class against the upstart middle?

LPR has a hunch that the Middle Class/Neo Feudalist split informs partisan realignment in 2016. Consider, yet again, the opening line in Federalist No. 57 – taking note of the “ambitious sacrifice of the many to the aggrandizement of the few.” What else was the essence of feudalism if not this kind of sacrifice and this kind of aggrandizement?

Consider the Never Trumpers who demand a “free trade” policy. For LPR, “free trade” is nothing more than code for “send jobs overseas” and throw a few government-sourced crumbs to the newly-jobless.

And consider, too, the leaders of the GOP anti-Trump effort. Are any of these political insiders considered part of Middle America – let alone on food stamps? Of course not. How far will these GOP Never Trumpers go in their Alinsky-ite anti-Trump venom? They deem it unethical, immoral to vote for Trump. Apparently, now, they are also contending it is anti-Christian to vote for Trump.

Never Trumper Peter Wehner, in his New York Times op-ed slot, July 5, asserted that Trump “embodies a worldview that is incompatible with Christianity.” So much for the idea that in the United States we have separation of church and state.

Wehner went on to ascribe to Donald J. Trump the mindset of the Never Trumpers – both right and left: “If you disagree with or oppose him, you are not merely wrong. You are worthless, stripped of dignity, the object of derision.”

Consider this from David McCullough, one of the anti-Trump historians quoted by Jim Dwyer, in The New York Tmes, July 13: calling Trump a “monstrous clown with a monstrous ego, with no experience, never served his country in any way—it’s just crazy’….” And what is that if not derision seeking to strip Trump of worth and dignity?

Imagine the fury of the Neo-Feudalists should Donald J. Trump defeat Hillary Clinton, come November 8, and by a landslide, no less. Another historian cited by Dwyer, William E. Leuchtenberg, professor emeritus at the University of North Carolina, complained that Trump “’has no sense of the American past.’”

LPR suggests to the Historians Against Trump Earnestly (HATE) that they get to work with articles that, citing our past, urge the members of the Electoral College to follow their conscience when they cast their ballots for the president. Should the issue go to the Supreme Court, the Court could well divide 5-4 in favor of votes of conscience by the electors, with the opinion by anti-Trump Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

LPR recalls that Hillary Clinton wanted to put an end to the Electoral College method of electing the president. How ironic if the Electoral College should salvage her quest for the presidency, notwithstanding the votes of the (diverse) middle class.

Trump’s presidential pretense

Doesn’t make sense

According to historian scholars

The man is a clown

Mark Levin Better Watch It

July 19, 2016 --

Mark Levin, the evening talk show person who seems never to resist bad-mouthing Donald J. Trump -- in between enjoying the plaudits of admirers and snarling at anyone who disagrees with him, should watch out that he doesn’t get dumped from his radio slot within days of the inauguration of Hillary Clinton as our 45th president.

LPR is pretty sure the voice of Anthony Weiner could be heard as substitute host, in the 10 A.M. to Noon slot on WABC, July 13. Weiner, of course, is the husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Anyone doubt that, as president, “whatever Hillary wants, Hillary will get?”

The New York Times: Adhering to Disinformation

July 19, 2016 --

The New York Times, June 29, continued to maintain the falsehood that the four Americans killed in Benghazi, including Amb. Chris Stevens, the night of September 11-12, 2012 were cut down “at the main American diplomatic compound in Benghazi by a mob of militia fighters who had been incited by an American-made video deriding the Prophet Muhammad.” This bizarre example of continued disinformation at The New York Times was published amidst the paper’s coverage of the House report on Benghazi that made it clear that the “video” had nothing to do with the attack.

By the way – when will the American people be told why that “mob of militia fighters” picked “the main American diplomatic compound in Benghazi” as its target. What indeed was going on at that “compound?” Haven’t the American people the right to know?

Another Slice of New York Times Disinformation

July 19, 2016 --

Jim Rutenberg, in his New York Tmes “Media” column, July 4, lambasting CNN for giving a job to former Trump aide Corey Lewandowski, asserted that the media in Britain” is avowedly more partisan” than the U.S. media.

Hard for LPR to imagine a more partisan newspaper than The New York Times. LPR cannot imagine The New York Times criticizing the leftist slant of former Clinton aide George Stephanopoulos at ABC News, or the leftist slant of CBS News, whose president is the brother of White House propagandist Ben Rhodes.

LPR’s Theory on Why the Attorney General Met with Bill Clinton

July 19, 2016 --

Attorney General Loretta Lynch intentionally met with Bill Clinton, with both making sure the meeting would be publicized, to have the excuse to “defer” to others how to deal with the problem of Emailgate. LPR agrees with comparisons of Bill and Hillary Clinton to Tom and Daisy Buchanan, with this difference: the Clintons are not careless; they are willful – while leaving, of course, for others to clean up the messes they create.

Anyone else wondering ...

…how much ad value to the Democrats will be anti-Trump media coverage of the Republican National Convention PLUS pro-Hillary Clinton media coverage of the Democratic National Convention? A billion bucks total – or more?


Support cooperative
free enterprise.

Predatory free enterprise
is bad for our
economic health.


If we don't speak out against economic bullying by Oil, Credit Cards, Municipalities, WHO WILL?

7/21/2016 -- LPR invites you to particpate in our latest poll.
1) As a society, the United States does not take an effective stand against violence in the inner cities.
2) Given the apparent acceptance of most of the U.S. media to the forcible Democrat sit-in in the House of Representatives, were President Hillary Clinton to order troops to surround Capitol Hill and bar Republicans from entering the House and Senate, The New York Times would lead the media in asserting that "this unfortunate action was made ‘necessary and proper' by the refusal of Republicans to accept Ms. Clinton’s legislative program."

LPR invites business faculty and media to join our regular clicksters for its view of the economy, among other places, as witnessed deep in the grass roots, and its advocacy of the principles of Federalist Paper No. 57, including the caution that the common good is not served when the self-serving few seek great economic sacrifices from the many.
