Trump Declares Dead, the One-Sided, Unsigned, Un-Agreed-Upon, Non-Agreement

On Tuesday night, Mark Levin was speaking of the Iran Nuclear deal that was just sent to the scrap heap by president Trump. To this Levin said it was a great decision. And he added that it was also a Statesmen’s decision with an accompanying Statesmen-like speech to the American people. I agree.

However, as Mark continued, he said something I disagree with and which I thing is quite important – ultimately the most important thing to be gleaned from this whole Obama/Kerry foreign policy scam.

That is that this deal wasn’t and isn’t foreign policy. It’s not a deal, an agreement, a treaty or anything else. It was merely a wish list laid out by Obama and his anti-colonialist, anti-Semitic brothers and sisters – no different than ones crafted for Santa Claus.

But then Mark went on to say that, “Barack Obama cut a deal with this rogue regime. John Kerry negotiated it.” Unfortunately this is not accurate. I know that Mark knows this and was merely making a point, but many less erudite do not – which is why I think it important to boil this Iran “agreement” down to its essence.

The essence of the agreement between the United States and Iran is as real as are unicorns. There is no essence because there is no deal. Never was one. read more

Life Liberty & Levin is a Must See

Media Research Center’s Brent Bozell and Tim Graham explain why Mark Levin’s latest television venture is must see TV. The Fox news program, which airs each Sunday night at 10 PM Eastern time is real educational TV, unlike the soundbite filled clap-trap presented as news on other shows.

I can personally attest – you’ll be smarter for watching it.

Learning from ‘Life Liberty & Levin’

 

Liberal journalists have spilled a whole lot of ink in the Trump era boasting how they’ve suffered watching a week or so of Fox News programming to explore the strange informational terrain of the Trump voter. They pompously proclaim it’s television for your crazy Uncle Frank, pushing conspiracy theories for dumb people while nurturing resentments toward the elites — meaning, of course, them. read more

Mueller Indictments are Old News

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Monday night on his radio program, Mark Levin raised some rather compelling points and posited some interesting questions regarding the 12 count indictments “Special Council” Robert Mueller and his dream team of hack lawyers.

I’ve said many times that I am not a Trumpster, but the American people should not allow the President to be railroaded.

But as should be patently obvious, and should’ve been from the get-go, Mueller was selected to do one thing – bring down Trump. Or if that is not possible, damage him badly enough as to render him completely ineffective.

One can tell that Mueller has taken his task seriously, judging by his choices of attorneys on his dream team.

In September, Business Insider hailed the choices saying, “Mueller’s team boasts a storied amount of experience both prosecution and criminal defense, hailing from prestigious law firms like WilmerHale to top spots within various divisions of the Justice Department.”

Yes – they have plenty of experience dealing with the criminal element, as virtually all of them are former Obama or Clinton hacks and had donated to both their campaigns. Some clerked for the most leftist supreme Court justices, yet not a single one clerked for any conservative justice. Weird. read more

Innovation can not be Statically Scored

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Mark Levin had a great point the other day when he was a guest on Fox News. Of course, when does Levin not make great points. He was debating Eric Bolling over whether the Republicans should go ahead and repeal Obamacare without a replacement bill.

Naturally the debate shifted to the elephant in the room – the CBO scoring of the Senate healthcare bill which stated that 22 million fewer people will go without healthcare should their bill pass.

Now, to most other guests, this predicament would see the them stammering or trying to change the subject. Not Levin.

He said the Insurance companies will immediately begin offering plans like a-la-carte and bare-bones catastrophic plans. Plans that people actually want and can afford. He added that these companies may already have them waiting in the wings – that there’s just too much money out there for companies to just ignore. In other words, entrepreneurs will step in to fill the gap as rapidly as they are allowed.

This is the beauty of America ingenuity and innovation. The need for insurance will be filled, and it will be better and cheaper than with government heavy-handedness. read more

Mark Levin Says to Just Repeal ObamaCare

Mark Levin, was on the Fox News program, The Five, yesterday. He was brilliant as usually. But by brilliant, I mean brilliantly simplistic. He discussed repeal and replacement of ObamaCare with Eric Bolling, who appears to be shilling for the GOP and is more concerned with the outcome of the 2018 midterms already, than doing what the Republicans promised prior to winning majorities. In other words, party trumps country.

Rather then explain what Levin said, why not just watch the exchange: read more

What Happened to Trump’s Undying Support of Israel

Why is the Trump administration backing off of the President’s rather definitive campaign declaration to move the American Embassy in Israel from Tel-Aviv to its rightful place in Jerusalem?

January 22, 2017

I’m trying my best not to condemn Trump and his people for not doing what he promised (and he did promise), right off of the bat, but I am beginning to wonder and worry on a growing number of campaign promises, just what has changed from campaign to White House.

Now, despite me writing a fair bit about Israel, I don’t have any particular love for, or peculiar fetish regarding the tiny nation. But as most of us are, maybe I’m just a big fan of underdogs.

Every movie ever made about the oppressed, singled-out, or otherwise unnecessarily put-upon underdog, finds those who view, cheering for the little guy.

And it’s always the same story. The underdog is just that. He or she is weaker, slower, smaller, disabled, not as intelligent, etc. – but somehow in the end, finds a way to prevail. It’s the story of David vs. Goliath told over and over again in hundreds of ways.

But not all underdogs are cheered. One in particular evokes the opposite emotional response from many. Of course this is the aforementioned Israel. The only nation hated by more of the Globe than the United States of America. read more

Republicans Lead with the Mantra – Whatever is Easiest

Do not be fooled by the Republican or White House spin that this budget agreement is anything but a total retreat and surrender to the MINORITY party – the Democrats. But hey – fighting is hard. It’s just easier to capitulate.

I was originally going to express it as a Republican give-away – but it isn’t. You see – you have to first possess something in order to give it away – like one’s principle or integrity. The Republicans possess neither.

On his radio show, an angry Mark Levin exclaimed that the Dems passed all of ObamaCare with a simply majority under reconciliation. Mark rhetorically asked how it is that Democrats seem to always know how to play the rules in the House and Senate – use parliamentary rules and procedures to advance their agenda – to get things done, and the Republicans don’t seem to. Is the GOP just not as smart as Schumer, Pelosi and the rest of the Mensa honorees in the Democrat Party?

Of course not. The Democrats, for the most part, are believers. No – they don’t really believe in standing up and fighting for the less fortunate. They believe in the leftist ideal of big government authoritarian control and spending. In other words, they are statists. Of course they would never describe it as such, but this is what it boils down to.

They seem to always get they want because they don’t compromise. And even if they appear to compromise, as in giving the President an additional $15 billion in defense spending and unpinning it from domestic matching, it’s barely a compromise. read more

It’s Time Someone Slapped Down the Rogue Federal Courts

by: the Common Constitutionalist

On Wednesday, at a rally in Nashville, president Trump proclaimed that, “A judge has just blocked our Executive Order on travel and refugees coming into our country from certain countries….We’re going to fight this terrible ruling. We’re going to take our case as far as it needs to go including all the way up to the supreme Court. The danger is clear – the law is clear – the need for my Executive order is clear…”

Trump has now been blocked multiple times by lower court judges.

So what does he or anyone intend to do about it? It appears he intends to fight this all way to the high court – or should I say, the black-robed legislators. And then what?

This is how far we’ve strayed from the Constitution and the design of the federal judicial branch’s authority. All on the right are wailing about the courts clearly overstepping their bounds, but from what I’ve heard and seen thus far, no one has offered a solution. read more

Podcast – Trump Wants Merit-based Immigration – Orrin Hatch is a Liar

In his first address to Congress and the Senate, president Trump declared that he wanted America to return to a merit-based legal immigration system. Needless to say the left is not thrilled with this idea, as they no doubt would the current system of allowing lay-about family members would come here expressly to live off the system, and have no demonstrable skills. I discuss this proposal and the reasons why it the only system which makes any sense.

Yes – Utah Senator Orrin Hatch has lied to us about running for reelection at the age of 82. Mark Levin is not happy with the Senator and expresses his displeasure in a Facebook post. I discuss Mark’s post and add a few expressions of my own. read more
