Why are our college campuses and public schools run amok with left-leaning, socialism-loving young people who despise America’s founding and its basic conservative principles? It didn’t happen over night, it was in planning over a hundred years ago! The problem at our campuses is simple, we don’t teach Americanism, but we teach relativism. John Dewey was an early advocate of reconstructing education to bring it in comportment with progressivism. Dewey admired the Marxists in the Soviet Union, because they took their ideology and applied it to the classroom. Education was used to promote socialist agendas then and now in the U.S. It’s a complete rejection of the Declaration of Independence that has happened. Progressives wanted the rejection of eternal truth, history and God. To them, the world begins today. What happened to ingraining in our children with the love of country and love of principles? What about our principles? They don’t matter seem to matter anymore. Our founding principles are enduring and eternal. They don’t change with the times. Also, America was founded by mostly Christians. They were very tolerant men when it came to other people and their faiths. The diversity of views found in this nation were due to the fact that the Founders understood the Enlightenment and were men of faith. Later, those who dismiss ideas, principles and philosophy have no idea what they are doing. Chuck Schumer is operating from the position of Utopian Statism. The Democrats keep sprinting to the finish line and throw wrenches in Trumps plan at every turn. Even when they agree with Trump, they must control and be in control. It is about time conservatives fought back.

President Trump said he was going to take out ISIS and that is clearly what he wants to do. The U.S. dropped the “Mother of All Bombs” (MOAB) on ISIS in Afghanistan Thursday to target and take out an ISIS-K tunnel complex. The main attribute of this bomb was designed to crush and destroy underground bunkers and structures like the one ISIS-K had. In addition, in the space of a week, Trump has completely altered his positions from the campaign on Syria, China and NATO. Trump is consistent in his inconsistency, but in the end he will be judged by the voters on whether he was successful or not. Also, British and other European intelligence agencies intercepted communications between Trump associates and Russians. They detected multiple communications and passed them on to the U.S. They passed this information on and it was leaked by Senate Democrats. Here we have Democrat leaks from Capitol Hill and Obama holdovers from the DOJ or those sympathetic engaging in leaks. Later, the Convention of States is under attack now that we have the attention of our enemies. The groups against this are allying with the Democrats to preserve an endless bureaucracy to torment the American people. Opponents who are concerned and afraid of a runaway Convention attack the Constitution itself. Finally Michael Doran calls in to talk to Mark about his new book, “Ike’s Gamble”.

It’s amazing what a new President and new administration can do with serious people running a serious foreign policy. Look at the change in China and Russia. Russia is on its heels and reports are that China is putting pressure on North Korea. The way you defeat Vladimir Putin is the way Ronald Reagan defeated the Soviet Union, by building up the military and unleashing the economy. Then we will crush Russia and China without firing a shot. Later, almost six weeks ago this we began asking questions about the Obama administration’s alleged surveillance of the Trump campaign and transition team. Now, there’s absolutely no question it occurred and the media is trying to cover it up. CNN came up with story and have sources that say there is nothing to the statements made by Devin Nunes. CNN spoke to a couple of anonymous sources who say there is nothing here, case closed. But Adam Housely, a reporter at Fox News calls in to discuss Congress expanding the unmasking probe amid questions over Susan Rice’s role. We should be asking if the surveillance of Carter Page, a former Trump adviser, led to anything. We don’t know what he did or what he didn’t do but Page is a nonstory. At this point we don’t know what happened, but clearly Congress is concerned. Also, the FBI did obtain a warrant to survey Carter Page. This means that James Clapper’s assertion in March that there was no FISA Court order activity against President Trump or his campaign is false.

President Trump, like President Reagan before him, has displayed a strength of resolve that has put America’s enemies on notice. When Trump attacked the Syrian airbase, he sent many signals after 8 years of appeasement and capitulation. He signaled to Russia, North Korea, Iran and China that America isn’t to be messed with. President Obama gave our enemies so much leeway that they took advantage of us and we had to reverse course. Also, North Korea wants to fire nukes at us with Kim Jong-un’s finger on the button. The Trump administration is acting in ways a responsible administration should in pushing back against Russia, China, and North Korea. It is appalling for Trump to be attacked for doing the right thing from both the left and the Code Pink Republicans. Trump has decided to and has taken steps to protect this country. After that, Sebastian Gorka, Deputy Assistant to the President, calls in to discuss the White House’s view on the missile strike on Syria. Finally, David Limbaugh calls in to talk about his new book, “The True Jesus: Uncovering the Divinity of Christ in the Gospels.”

We bring you the best of Mark Levin. This is the show that started the President Trump surveillance investigations. The big scandal here is that we’ve had the Obama administration surveilling the Trump campaign and transition team and leaking information to the public, in hopes of getting Hillary Clinton elected. Those are police state tactics! Nothing Gen. Michael Flynn or AG Jeff Sessions have done are even in the same category as that. The real question should be, was Barack Obama as President using our intelligence services through the FISA court to gather information on their opponent? In addition, where did the information on Sessions come from? The Obama administration knew exactly what they were doing. They loosened NSA information gathering rules weeks before they left office. The information was then grabbed and spread to plants in the government. The question is who they did spy on and the extent of the spying that is the Trump campaign, the Trump transition and Trump surrogates. Also, Sessions has recused himself from the investigation between President Trump and Russian ties. He met with the ambassador as matter of his duty as a senator not as a surrogate for the Trump 2016 campaign. However, Republicans in the house and Senate insisted that he recuse himself. You can bet Republicans will throw these guys overboard just like they did with Gen Mike Flynn. The left’s desire to destroy this administration is insatiable, and they are not going to stop. Did Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch ever recuse himself on anything? This is so pathetic that Republicans are all over T.V. saying Sessions should recuse himself. Republicans like Kevin McCarthy are running for the hills whenever liberals attack. Finally, Dr. John Eastman, Law professor at Chapman Law School calls in to talk to discuss Trump’s fascination with Andrew Jackson. Jackson vetoed every bill by Congress that attempted to work on local and state projects.

Adam Housley of Fox News calls in to discuss the investigation into leaks coming from the Obama administration. What he found was that Barack Obama’s national security advisor Susan Rice requested that Trump officials be unmasked during the transition period. Rice says she knew nothing about it yet she is the one who is in these reports unmasking the names. Someone had to come to her to tell Rice what was in those reports, so who else is involved? There is a lot of information here and multiple paths that this investigation could go. This has been going on for a long time now. After that, Eli Lake from Bloomberg News calls in talk about what Devin Nunes is trying to get at. Susan Rice requested data on U.S. intelligence reports that were connected to the Trump transition. It all raises a lot of questions about what Susan Rice’s purpose was. What did she do with this information and why did she unmask it? The big question is who asked for the name of Mike Flynn to be unmasked? Finally, it was Ted Kennedy’s strategy to keep highly qualified Constitutionalists from the court and it all started with nomination of Robert Bork and one of the most vile speeches ever made by Kennedy. It was Chuck Schumer’s strategy that led to effort to destroy Clarence Thomas and the strategy being used to try to take out Neil Gorsuch now. We have now reached a point where filling the Scalia seat with a decent constitutionalist is now unacceptable.

Bill Cunningham fills in for Mark Levin. Michael Flynn is about the best there is, a retired 3 star general who served his country. He was offered to be granted immunity to testify on what he knew of Russia. The only reason the FBI and the democrats are granting immunity is to try and get rid of President Trump. The media is forgetting to mention that there were at least 5 former aides of Hillary Clinton, including Hillary’s former chief of staff who were granted immunity. When this happened with Hillary it was nothing because the media wanted to elect Hillary over Trump. After that, the Democrats have to create mass distraction to keep your eyes off the fact that the Obama was conducting a criminal investigation of Trump. Obama staffers involved in leaks against Trump committed felonies against him and one of the victims of those felonies is Flynn. To add, didn’t James Comey in essence confirm that the Trump campaign was being surveilled? Comey said he opened the investigation in July of 2016. What was the core of this investigation? Comey’s mere confirmation of an investigation confirms the thrust of Trump’s tweet. Later, the things that caused us to vote for Trump had nothing to do with Russia but the fact that we had enough with Barack Obama’s policies and Hillary Clinton. We wanted to put someone in power to drain the swamp and not play the Washington game.

On Wednesday’s Mark Levin show, Evelyn Farkas, former Deputy Assistant Secretary at the Pentagon under Barack Obama, who appears to have confessed to the existence of a concerted effort to surveil the Trump team and hide the findings in the federal bureaucracy ought to be brought before Congress as a witness. She recalled how she and others worked in the waning days of the Obama presidency to hide data about members of the Trump transition team and their dealings with Russia. This is a big deal regardless of what the media think. She is more than a witness but a perpetrator. Do we or do we not need to get to the bottom of the Obama administration’s misuse of intelligence information and intelligence agencies? Also, Farkas resigned from the Pentagon in 2014, well before Trump announced he was running for president in June of 2015. So, which Trump staff was she referring to in the interview on MSNBC? In addition, Devin Nunes is referred to as controversial. When you have a gutsy Republican who stands up, he is attacked, mocked and asked to step down. Democrats attacking Nunes claim to love this country but they ought to fight for it. They seek to fundamentally transform the country and have done more damage to it than any of our enemies. The Democrat Party exploits the institutions of republicanism. Later, Bernie Sanders is getting excited about President Trump’s position on infrastructure and drug prices. Marxists think the U.S. is Venezuela or North Korea. What has Sanders created that has improved American’s welfare? Government intervention in these areas will just drive up costs.

The House Intelligence Committee hearing Monday was pointless. The Committee neglected to ask the important questions. Why wasn’t FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers asked about the NY Times reports about Obama White House officials receiving intelligence information and spreading it with various agencies and who were the source of those leaks? The Russians did try to interfere with our elections, but we already knew that, that’s not the issue. The issue is the conduct of these agencies, who has been leaking, what information was shared, and who shared it. If Comey can’t assure the American people that the leaks will go uninvestigated, how come it’s fine for Comey and the FBI to investigate alleged Trump and Russia ties? Also, the Russians we are told, wanted Trump to win because they hated Hillary Clinton. Can anybody name a single policy that Hillary Clinton had that was truly harmful to the ambitions of Vladimir Putin and the Russian government? Finally, the purpose of the Constitution is to defend the individual and his or her liberty and create a government that supports that. The phrase, “living and breathing Constitution”, is always promoted by progressives. An activist court that upheld Plessy vs. Ferguson believed in a living and breathing Constitution, so did FDR with the internment of Japanese Americans and the court that upheld the Roe vs Wade decision. You want judges to apply the facts, not a living and breathing ideology. Having an originalist interpretation of the Constitution like Neil Gorsuch has nothing to do with supporting slavery, or being anti woman.

President Donald Trump mentioned a “talented lawyer” who spoke on Fox News and immediately certain news outlets said that Mark Levin was the one Trump was referring to. That was not Mark but Judge Napolitano. This shows how corrupt, partisan, incompetent, and diabolical the media in this country is. They cannot help but lie deceive and insinuate, because Mark exposed them. The media needs to be held to account on the so called Trump and Russia ties. They have been caught red handed including the New York Times, the Guardian, CNN, BBC and others. You have to be the lowest of the low to promote a left wing meme that somehow the Russians were in collusion with Trump. They keep pushing it out there to delegitimize Trump and his election. We know that Barack Obama wasn’t wiretapping Trump’s phone calls. Now we want to know if the media’s past reports on Russia and Trump collusion are true. Now the media is trying to reverse course. Were they lying to the American people or were they telling the truth? After that, 5 judges on the 9th circuit went out of their way to rebuke their 3 colleagues on the 9th Circuit panel who decided to block Trump’s travel ban. The judges who blocked Trump now are applauded for what they do by the liberal media. This is a rogue judiciary and tyranny. If we can’t rely on judges to be judges, we are living in a third world banana republic.

President Trump’s budget proposal is overall oustanding, however the one part of the bill you won’t hear discussed in the liberal media is the debt. The national debt is out of control, but the left-wing media doesn’t care. Instead they will act as the Praetorian guard of big government and viciously attack any attempt to reign in profligate, wasteful federal spending. This is unsustainable. After that, the media is putting out statements by Intelligence Committee members saying Obama didn’t order the wiretaps. The fact that these chairmen said what we already knew is of no consequence. Information was shared with the White House about the Trump campaign. What was the information? We have a right to know what police state tactics happened and now the media just wants us to move along. Later, there are people in this country who want to use power to destroy our liberty and they are succeeding. Conservatives are not dividing the country, the left is dividing the country. They want to use the iron fist. to impose their will. Those of us who push back shouldn’t be apologizing. We have to be smarter and more resolute. Finally, if you are below the poverty line, rather than expand Medicaid, people should get vouchers to buy their own private health insurance policies. This would help unleash these companies to create all kinds of policies, that don’t need the approval of government.

3/15/17 – Mark Levin Audio Rewind

There is no evidence that Barack Obama ordered a wiretap of President Donald Trump in Trump Tower. However this is not the issue. The issue at hand isn’t whether Obama ordered any sort of surveillance on Trump or his team, it’s whether he knew anything about it. News accounts are pretty condemnatory of what the Obama administration was up to. What is curious about all this is that the media is not tracking down Obama, Loretta Lynch or Obama staffers to get to the bottom of the story. The media let the Obama administration get away with it. In addition, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is concerned about the incidental collection of individuals tied to the Trump campaign and unmasking of Americans names for political purposes. Regular Americans want to get to the bottom of this. Later, did Rachel Maddow commit a felony in disclosing Trump’s tax returns from 2005 on her show? It is a close call. She has First Amendment rights, but it doesn’t mean that she is immune from criminal charges. After that, a federal judge, Derrick Watson, in Hawaii blocked Trump’s new travel ban, hours before it went into effect. We have judicial anarchy taking place right now where judges are seizing plenary authority from the President on immigration. There is nothing unconstitutional, racist or bigoted about what Trump is trying to do. We have to admit in this country that progressives have won so we can fight back. Ben Shapiro of the Daily Wire calls in to discuss the travel ban in more detail.

Vice President Mike Pence called into discuss the Republican health insurance reform plan and the repeal of Obamacare. Pence said that the American Healthcare Act will give Americans the ability to choose what kind of insurance they want to have. He expects that this will help us unleash the full power of the national market place. This plan is better than what the left would do, but it is not good enough. However, Pence said there are several amendments that will be added to the bill this week from conservative members of Congress that will hopefully fix critical errors in the legislation. This Healthcare Act will still leave the pillars of Obamacare largely intact. The Republican healthcare plan is not a repeal and it is not a more free market oriented system. They have a lot of smoke and mirrors built into this and are using propaganda to promote it. We will still be subsidizing people who are required to purchase health insurance approved by the federal government. The plans have to be within a certain required type of policy, such as young adults remaining on their parents’ policy until 26 and preexisting conditions. Later, Republicans are exposing themselves when it comes to repealing Obamacare. Progressive Republicans like Ileana Ros-Lehtinen are not supporting the American Healthcare Act because not enough of their constituents will be covered. After that, Bernie Sanders is claiming that the Healthcare Act being passed will result in the death of thousands of Americans. This is ridiculous. Actually, Obamacare is responsible for people dying. Rationing has already begun especially with our senior citizens and veterans. Finally, John Heubusch calls in to talk about his new book, The Shroud Conspiracy: A Novel.

Early in our Republic, the press aligned with one party or cause and would identify themselves as such. Today too many media outlets are simply dishonest about who they are and what they are doing. They claim to be journalists, pursuing facts but all too frequently that’s not the case. When you dress up partisan politics as freedom of the press, it’s destructive to freedom of the press. It’s time to focus on those abusing their power and more thoroughly call them to account. Also, Sen Mike Lee calls in to discuss the Republican replacement healthcare bill, which has ended up as something different than Obamacare repeal. It’s half repeal and half replace, which is a disaster. He’s pretty sure this bill, as of right now, won’t pass the House or the Senate. Later, John Solomon calls in to explain that the FBI investigated a Trump server in its Russia probe, but no charges are expected. If you were watching CNN you would swear there are connections between Russia and Trump but the FBI has found little evidence. Finally, the big news today is that after 3 years the Arizona state legislator passed convention of states resolution, making it the ninth state to do so. This movement has gone under the radar but if we can get 20 states people will start to realize this is a real movement.

3/10/17 – Mark Levin Audio Rewind

Full repeal of Obamacare through the budget reconciliation process in the Senate is possible and they can do it with 51 votes. Paul Ryan even said on the Mark Levin show in 2012 that 85% of Obamacare could be repealed through this process. But neither the House nor the Senate, have even attempted to pass a full repeal of the law through this process. So why won’t the Republicans do this? Because there are so many moderates and liberals in the Republican party that some of them want some aspects of Obamacare to stay. Also, the NY Times pushed sleazy reporting with their February 14th piece – “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence.” If there was no evidence of cooperation in their story then why write it? This is a smear job with innuendo and comingling of information with selective leaks. The media are caught red-handed in their propaganda. They wanted so badly to find something nefarious placing Trump’s campaign in cahoots with Russia that they engaged in Alinksy-like journalism tactics. Now, they have completely pivoted. The media are backed into a corner and all they can do is try and flip the story. Finally, AG Jeff Sessions fired 46 Obama appointed U.S Attorneys and the media is trying to make this out to be a scandal. Was there a scandal when Janet Reno fired 93 U.S. Attorneys in 1993 under Bill Clinton? A President has the right to pick his own appointees who he can trust to carry out his policy.

3/9/17 – Mark Levin Audio Rewind

Paul Ryan is way off on RINOcare and not answering any important questions. How much will the average premium or deduction go up or down? How much will the federal government be spending on subsidies for certain individuals? Where is it written that Ryan or President Trump can tell us what kind of insurance we can have? At the end of the day, the problem with RINOcare is that it embraces the Left’s assumption that government involvement is needed to make health insurance affordable. It embraces progressivism and centralization. Republicans have blown it. There is something horribly immoral about RINOcare. Also, Ryan is targeting conservatives, not democrats, with ads promoting RINOcare. Once again the establishment is against conservatives. Later, Sen Ben Cardin, who is Jewish, came out against David Friedman as Trump’s pick for Israeli ambassador. This is a prime example of how liberal Democrats put their party ideology first before their religion.

3/8/17 – Mark Levin Audio Rewind

President Trump is 100% behind the RINOcare replacement plan, which is a combination of establishment Republicans and the Trump administration pushing a massive government program. This plan will create a massive amount of regulation that will have a devastating impact on the economy. They are leaving price hike regulations in place and getting rid of the individual mandate, and then putting in place a 30% fine for those who don’t have insurance and decide to come back in. In addition, there will be tax credits, where the tax payer is going to be subsidizing an enormous amount of money. How will we ever move towards a completive market system for insurers to market to the middle? Also, the government is throwing money at the states to help them deal with high risk pools but it won’t be enough. The Republican plan doesn’t address the cost increasing mandates and it will affect Republicans at the ballot box. Why are the Republicans talking like liberals to get their big government program through? Conservative’s opposition is not based on purism or perfectionism but based on promises to fully roll back the core pillars of Obamacare which are hurting the country. After that, GOP leaders, like Steve Scalise are trying to shore up support for the bill are sending a dire message to conservatives. He’s telling principled constitutional conservatives that they have 2 choices, either you support Donald Trump who supports the American Healthcare Act, or you support Nancy Pelosi and Obamacare. These Republicans are acting like leftists and are creating a false dilemma. Later, Jim Jordan calls in to discuss his effort in fighting RINOcare. Finally, the fact that it was revealed that there were wiretaps on a Russian ambassador is outrageous. Why did the New York Times put a story out there about wiretapping if it wasn’t true? What was the point of the story? It was to create suspicion and a false impression.

3/7/17 – Mark Levin Audio Rewind

The problem with the Republican RINOcare healthcare plan is that it is not a market-oriented plan. The substance of this thing is politics through and through. Republicans embraced the progressive agenda, and Barack Obama and the Democrats have won. The worst part is that the Republicans are dressing their RINO plan up with conservative propaganda. Every one of the Obamacare fundamentals is being preserved, because Republicans fear being blamed. In addition, more and more of our society and what the government does revolves around the centralization of power, because the people are apparently too stupid to decide for themselves what kind of healthcare they need. Now, we need politicians, professors and surrogates to develop our healthcare plans. Later, Daniel Horowitz, Senior Editor at Conservative Review, calls in to talk to explain that the new RINO care not only doesn’t replace Obamacare, it doesn’t repeal it either. Also, Rep Dave Brat of Virginia calls in to talk about his opposition to the Republicans replacement healthcare plan. After that, we are leaving our children and grandchildren a broken Social Security system, a broken healthcare system, broken education system and trillions of dollars of debt. We have gone from a nation that was consent of the governed to a nation where the government gets to make every decision for us. What kind of a country do we want to be? Finally, Chuck Todd sounds shocked to hear from James Clapper there were no FISA warrants issued. This is an important revelation. The media in the aggregate have reported about FISA warrants. They allowed this story to hang out there. Are the media so ideologically driven that they have to take ten sides on one issue? At the end of the day, whether there was FISA Court involvement or not or wiretaps or not, the media reported it.

3/6/17 – Mark Levin Audio Rewind

The media have been caught in a web of contradictory lies when it comes to the FISA court issuing a warrant for wiretapping on President Trump’s 2016 campaign. Why is the media now denying that the Obama administration asked for FISA court warrants to surveil the Trump campaign? For weeks the media wanted us to believe that so serious were the connections between Trump, his campaign and Russia, that a probable cause standard was reached to launch wiretaps on Trump and his campaign. Now they would have you believe that there was no FISA warrant and no investigation. If there were no FISA court warrants issued last year, then why did the media report that there were for weeks? When is the media, including Jake Tapper, and Joe Scarborough going to track this down? Why didn’t Chuck Todd or Brian Stelter raise this issue about whether or not there were FISA court orders weeks ago? The media were basing their information on anonymous sources. The media is so ideologically driven they can’t even get their story straight. In addition, James Clapper former Director of National Intelligence denied there was a FISA court order. If Clapper is telling the truth, it helps Trump and his presidency. It shows that not only was there nothing, but there was never anything there. After that, is this a criminal investigation or intelligence investigation? You won’t get any help in answering this question from the newspapers such as the New York Times. James Comey should come out with a statement to say, not only did Barack Obama not give an order to investigate the Trump campaign but there was no FISA warrant issued.
