Democrats To Call for Presidential Transformation?

April 1, 2014 --

LPR has divined that Democratic leaders in Congress have drafted a resolution calling it "intolerable" that President Barack H. Obama is term-limited, while Russia's President Vladimir Putin is into his third term. LPR senses that Sen. Harry Reid and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi will ask the president to determine that term limits applied to him, and not to members of Congress, are discriminatory, on an institutional basis. They will also note that the Twenty-second Amendment to the Constitution was a Republican reaction to President Roosevelt's four terms and that the two-term limit for presidents "must be seen for what it is: typical Republican mean-spiritedness that hampers U.S. conduct in international affairs."

A New York Times editorial will suggest that under current circumstances, President Barack H. Obama has authority to annul the Twenty-second Amendment by presidential directive as a denial to him of the equal protection of the laws.

The Times editorial will add: "If President Barack H. Obama has authority to delay implementation of the Affordable Care Act as he sees fit, the president clearly has the authority to do with the Twenty-second Amendment as he deems reasonable and proper."

US Media to Adopt Guidelines on Putin?

April 1, 2014 --

Look for a statement signed by major U.S. news organizations that agrees to refer to Russian President Vladimir Putin by his surname, only, adding, to current preference for "autocrat," terms including "strongman," "bad man," "bully", "renegade," and "isolated." The guidelines, reportedly, will also recommend an end to the use of "czar" to refer to any member of the Obama administration.



Red Line

Extension of Sanctions against Russia?

April 1, 2014 --

Bans are forthcoming on Russian literature and music. No more performances of Tschaikovsky ballets and Chekhov plays. American cities and towns named Moscow are to be renamed Kiev. Russian vodka is forbidden. Borsht is to be known as Maidan soup.

Senate Republican Hostility to Putin Explained?

April 1, 2014 --

LPR has a hunch that Senate Republicans are particularly annoyed with Putin because he is willing to confront President Barack H. Obama. Their own refusal to confront the President highlights their weakness in this regard.

They thought, at first, they were referring to Palin.

LPR Explains Robert M. Gates

April 1, 2014 --

Former bi-partisan administration official Robert M. Gates, writing in The Wall Street Journal, March 26, noted that Putin "deeply resents the West for winning the Cold War." LPR believes that Mr. Gates resents Putin for refusing to submit to Washington's notions of democracy in the manner of the defeated Germany and Japan, after the Second World War. (It is unfortunate, LPR avers, that Mr. Gates is quoted, in The New York Times review of his book "Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War" --"'This White House's word means nothing.'"

Compare Putin, March 18, announcing Russia's annexation of Crimea: "[The West] lied to us many times, made decisions behind our backs, placed us before an accomplished fact. This happened with NATO's expansion to the East, as well as the deployment of military infrastructure at our borders....")


Red Line

Look for Senate leader
Harry Reid ...

April 1, 2014 --

... to call for probes into any possible ties linking the Koch Brothers to Putin. Senator Reid, LPR believes, has no information on the matter but Reid might be wondering if Putin worked with the Koch brothers to undermine implementation of Obamacare.

Also look for Senator Reid to remind Republicans that notwithstanding elections in November, under Article I, Section 5.1 of the Constitution: "Each House shall be the judge of the Elections, Returns and Qualifications of its own Members...."

The message, in brief: the people may vote, but the Senate majority will be the final judge of the returns.

LPR Predicts!

April 1, 2014 --

There will be no basic political change in Washington if, next November, the Senate gets a Republican majority and the House of Representatives stays Republican.

LPR expects that with Republican majorities in Senate and House, the GOP leaders will complain that they hold only one-third of the federal government and remain powerless against an active president backed by a supporting media.

Look for Republican leaders in Congress to keep lips buttoned if President Barack H. Obama announces, after the November 2014 elections, that he will use all the authority he can muster to issue presidential directives -- formerly known as executive orders --to make sure undocumented immigrants stay at the head of the line, to keep the climate from changing, to implement income reform, including the right of college athletes to organize, and to change the name of the Washington Redskins to the Washington Rainbow, among other things.

Meanwhile, in New York City ...

April 1, 2014 --

... Mayor Bill de Blasio is expected to announce the establishment of debtor's prisons to ease the plight of the elderly poor who, presently, must choose between paying parking fines in full, to avoid additional penalties, or buying food. Under the de Blasio "Jail the Elderly" fairness plan, poor people hit with parking tickets, will be able to work off their fines at $10 a day, fortified with three meals of gruel and water.

Will NATO declare ...
... a model airplane no-fly zone extending 180 miles into Russia from the Ukraine border? (To insure against drones.)


April 1, 2014 --

LPR Does Not Discount the Possibility ...
... that First Lady Michelle Obama's trip to China was cover for ultra-secret negotiations with Putin to obtain the return of Edward Snowden to the U.S. Was the Ukraine crisis also part of this very deep cover?


April 1, 2014 --

LPR Does Not Rule Out ...
... the possibility that President Barack H. Obama is especially miffed at Putin for not recognizing that the center of "progressive" government is now in Washington, not Moscow.


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?

4/2/2014 -- LPR invites you to particpate in our latest poll.
1) Demonstrations in Ukraine and Egypt make it clear that elections by ballot are obsolete in the 21st century. It is time to elect governments via participatory democracy, that is: by mass demonstrations in the squares of country capitals. Note: where there are no individual votes, there can be no voter fraud.

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.
