Mark Levin explains to Republican Senators why Trump’s National Emergency does NOT violate the Constitution

Mark Levin opened his show tonight hitting back at all the misinformation and bad information being put out there people who think they know what they are talking about when it comes to Trump’s national emergency and the Constitution.

Levin explains for the umpteenth time why Trump’s national emergency is legal and does not violate the Constitution.

And it’s not just Republican Senators, but they are a big part of who Levin is addressing tonight.

Listen below:



Levin mentions Mike Lee (from The Right Scoop baby!) after the 8:30 mark. But I wouldn’t skip there, I’d listen to the whole thing because it’s very good.

Also, this is Levin’s podcast embed so if you want to keep on listening, I’m sure you’re in for a great show.

You may also use this as an open thread if you like.

Enjoy!

No Mark, the Constitution DOES NOT give the Executive branch the “authority to move money around.” Feel free to point to the sentence in Article II of the U.S. Constitution to prove me wrong, however. https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/articleii Yes, Trump has the authority to declare a National Emergency, as have the other US Presidents before him. And what happens after EVERY “National Emergency” is declared? Congress takes up a SPENDING BILL to fund said National Emergency. Mark mentions the Military Construction Codification Act of 1982. The FIRST page defines the term “construction,” and that it must be on a “Military Installation.” The southern Border is NOT a “Military Installation,” (See page TWO). While it would make SENSE for the Military to be in control of our borders, we’ve actually created a bureaucracy called the United States Department of Homeland Security. “(2) ‘Military installation’ means a base, camp, post, station, yard, center, or… Read more »

Thank you for posting this. It won’t be popular, but you stated the case brilliantly. It’s just that in today’s society, facts don’t trump feelings. Yes, there must be something done about the border, but this isn’t the way.

That’s nice of you to say. To some here, posting facts usually leads to someone calling you “stupid.”

And I was sincere in my admiration for Mark. He was the only one who wasn’t full ‘trumpster’ when it would have been easy for him to follow Hannity and Rush. Sadly though, soon after his show on FOXNEWS he started putting words in Trump’s mouth to make excuses for him. Still hoping he returns to objectivity but it’s not looking good. He recently went on a (well earned) rant about the Cradle Act (forced paid paternity leave, and it’s a GARBAGE bill) but not ONCE while railing against the Republicans did he mention Trump. Seems Mark is willfully and dishonestly omitting that A) Trump boasted about wanting this on the Campaign Trail, and B) Asked for it in his 2018 Budget proposal! sad

Thank you, Talitha.

BR1, if you are going to criticize Levin’s comments, why don’t you listen to him 1st? Your lack of understanding of Levin’s case undercut any criticism you may have. Levin never said the CONSTITUTION gives the prez the “right to move $ around.” Levin said it was the statutory authority granted in both the 1974 National Emergencies Act & the Military Construction Act of 1982 that grant the prez that authority. Additionally, in your race to the bottom of the stupid pit, you seemed to gloss over this part of the 1982 act that says: may carry out a military construction project not otherwise authorized by law if the Secretary determines (1) that the project is vital to the national security, and (2) that the requirement for the project is so urgent that deferral of the project for inclusion in the next Military Construction Authorization Act would be inconsistent with… Read more »

I don’t think Lee has an issue with the declaration, but the funding mechanism.

Although, to be honest, I can’t help but wonder if Trump brought this reversal by Lee on himself during the “negotiations” between Trump and GOP Senators.

And I suspect Lee’s new position is a result of that meeting and is likely personal.

It’s also symbolic, though, since there’s NO WAY they muster 2/3rds of the Senate to over-ride a VETO.

What this boils down to is a fight by Americans over our sovereignty and right to live our lives in peace against a Congress that wants an unfettered illegal alien invasion to satisfy one of two things: 1) Dems want a new voting base; 2) Repubs want cheap labor for their Chamber of Commerce masters.

Your comment is built on the assumption that Republicans are always right and Democrats are always wrong. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

It’s also worth noting that values have no group allegiance. A key indicator that one has no values is group allegiance. The reason why the west was founded on individualism is precisely so that values could thrive and the reason why collectivism is an utter moral failure is because collectivism (i.e. group allegiance) is where values go to die.

I didn’t say Republicans are always right. On the illegal immigration issue, Republicans are way more right than Democrats who just a few years agreed publicly that illegal immigration was wrong. Now, though, they see that their power grab is unstoppable so they don’t even bother hiding it. “collectivism (i.e. group allegiance) is where values go to die” Huh, now who has an assumption of something being always wrong? The USA was founded on the importance of individual liberty, but to pretend that collective action wasn’t a key part of the government in the beginning and a good when used properly is to ignore history. Collectivism isn’t always wrong. It’s wrong to apply top-down collectivism when smaller more local applications of it are good. Your family is a collective that should cover most needs that it can cover. Your neighborhood is a collective and at times it’s appropriate for neighborhoods… Read more »

Levin says it’s constitutional and then cites a few laws, passed by congress?

Congress cannot change the constitution with an act. It can only be amended, and ratified, by the states.

Per the constitution, only congress can allocate money. The acts attempt to cede this power to the executive, a violation of the letter and intent of the constitution, and is therefore unconstitutional.

Is it an emergency? Yes. Is a border wall a national defense issue? Yes. Is it the right thing to do? Arguably, yes.

But violating the constitution to do a right thing is still wrong.

You cannot claim to be a constitutional conservative and support this. No matter how bad you want a wall.

The irony is without this Amendment (X) the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution would likely NOT have been ratified.

The Founders were terrified of an all power Federal Government. The 10th Amendment was written to quell those fears.

I think that “what is Constitutional” was foreshadowed to eventually mean “whatever the courts didn’t overturn” back around Marbury vs Madison. Really that was because the Constitution forgot to include a way to resolve logical problems with following its rules and abdicated to the courts. An amendment spelling out some limits to Judicial Review should have been made right after MvM. Then during and after the Civil War, that foreshadowing became the effective reality. States’ Rights was fatally wounded when the combatants chose war over secession. States’ Rights died when the North won the argument over whether or not the member states had the right to object by withdrawing their membership. Really, that was another Constitutional oversight. After the New Deal, that effective reality became painfully obvious… except to Conservative Constitutionalist types… my past self included. Basically, Con Cons are hosed.

TC, Levin is saying the prez’s authority to declare a national emergency is laid out in the 1976 Nation Emergencies Act-which it is. So the prez is clearly acting within the statutory authority granted to him-what is “unconstitutional” about that? If your answer is, that the 1976 law is “unconstitutional,” then why are you just now having a problem with this? The act has been user over 50 x’s since it’s creation, now all of the sudden you find it “unconstitutional?” Is it your contention that the act is only “unconstitutional” when PDJT uses it? Additionally, you say “only Congress can allocate $.” Only Congress can appropriate $, the actual spending-some might say “allocation”-is actual done by the prez-this is not in dispute. So, if you contention is, the prez is superseding Congress’s authority to appropriate $-you are clearly wrong, that is not what the prez is doing here. Here’s… Read more »

As a constitutional conservative my stance was, under George W, BH Obama, and now Trump, that the War Powers Act specifically, and all acts that delegate congressional powers to the executive in general, are unconstitutional. Because they are. And I laid out the logic above. A federal judge does a similar service here. Constitutionally speaking, every dollar congress appropriates must also be earmarked for a specific purpose. Congress cannot simply delegate the executive a slush fund. Look, if Obama was taking tobacco, explosives and alcohol funds from ATF and redirecting it to confiscate guns you’d all be up in arms. And rightly so! But the ATF has the exact same level of responsibility as ICE has regarding national defense. And it would reveal the unlawfulness if Obama first went to congress for the funds and was told no. It’s Pen & Phone all over again. No, the executive has to… Read more »

Mark also said that the US Constitution grants the Executive the right to move funds around.

While I deeply respect Mark Levin, I could NOT find that anywhere in Article II of the Constitution.

I’ll say this, I’m fed up with Mark and other trumpsters who continue to dance around the FACT that for TWO YEARS while Trump had the majority in BOTH Houses, Trump did NOTHING.

He could have had his chauffeur and staff drive his butt to Capital Hill EVERY DAY to meet with the Republican Leaders and tell them to get it done, a phrase I borrowed from the detestable Obama, who said it to the equally detestable Pelosi and company when Obama met REPEATEDLY with Leadership to get his, once again detestable Affordable Care Act passed.

The union boss doesn’t need to be an Einstein to know that this guy is a Republican, so he shouts over to the bartender so loudly that everyone can hear: “Drinks for everyone in here, bartender…but not for the ‘Republican’!” Soon after the drinks have been passed out, the Republican gives him a big smile, waves at him then says, “Thank you!” in an equally loud voice.

Perhaps, but it’s possible he’s playing a longer game. He could let the establishment have their way twice before unleashing a strategy they weren’t prepared for. The optics would be in his favor after ceding to Congress a second time. We’re always one story away from the federal government being forced to seal off our southern border too. However, if he’s leaving everything up to Jared Kushner, we’re about to be sold down the river. He knows Trump 2020 can’t happen in that scenario, so he may start to throw the GOP establishment under the bus as the election draws nearer, and force them to choose between the wall and re-election. When you force someone into a corner, be prepared for the unforeseen consequences.

You learn more in a fifteen minute Levin opening then you would learn watching all the other networks for a lifetime. That’s like a text book example of how to address an issue. I have listened to it several times and I would say it’s as good as Denali has ever been. Brilliant so damn brilliant.

Kram NivelKram Nivel I know someone (my age) who had no clue how our government was setup. Kept asking me all these questions. I finally said if you want to learn, then listen to Mark Levin. A year later, after more and more questions, I asked if she had started listening. NO, she says. I said do it. You’ll learn. She finally did and now she’s spot on with her understanding of what’s happening. He is brilliant.

Wouldn’t you love to have had a professor like him in school? I would not have minded going in debt getting a college education if that were the case.

Kram NivelKram Nivel I’m in law school right now. Not a single mention in any of my classes of the Constitution. I’m having to read critical SCOTUS rulings to learn about it from a legal standpoint. Yes, I’d give anything to have Mark Levin as a professor in law school. I try not to miss his radio show but sometimes I do.

Wish you the best. One thing I have heard several times read the federalist papers. I was a police officer so I would mainly just study and read Court decisions on criminal cases and such, search and seizure cases etc. I am facinated by the law and it’s application.

mslibertymsliberty Thanks. It is back to normal at the moment. I am going back to work in a couple of weeks. I love working and not a fan of sitting at home and being retired. I need to star getting to bed earlier. But friends like you and so many others are keeping me up late. We have a blast here don’t we? thumbsup
