Mark Levin: Republican leadership doesn’t know how to deal with a radical left-wing president

Mark Levin told WMAL yesterday morning that it’s time for some new fresh faces in the Republican leadership and it’s time for Boehner and McConnell to go. He says this leadership doesn’t know how to deal with a radical left-wing president and that unlike Reagan, who understood the existential threat from the left because he came from the left, they think the existential threat is the Tea Party.



When asked if he was going to use his powerful voice on radio to go against those like John McCain and Peter King who undercut Ted Cruz during this Obamacare fight, he replied “you can bet on it…you’re damn right I am.”

Two of them had no problem dealing with leftist radicals in Syria, but that also involved giving away the store. The Tea Party wing of the party are the only ones with a spine – and they catch flack from the spineless for being willing to take a stand against the communist onslaught.

You are correct Mark to a point…can it still be fear of being considered racist by the media, AND fearful and jealous of the new mavericks entering the picture. Men who have integrity, tenacity, grit and don’t cow-tow to the Washington insiders! They stand for principle…they stand with the troops, not the elitists in Washington! As Senator Cruz said today…he would rather be loved by Texas and hated by the politicians then the other way around! We still have so many parasites in the Republican Party (Jeb Bush) to name one. Don’t you think it’s time for a third party, and elect one who knows how to stand up the this establishment governance? We have witnessed several such men in the past few weeks. There was a great article in the Washington Times today by a Washington radio host by the name of Kuhner I believe is his name. It… Read more »

Prohibition was law too and actually part of the constitution, yet it is overturned defeated and no longer with us, because it was a bad law (or amendment) ,might take a while ,but I think obamacare will have the same fate

Exactly. The argument that Obamacare is a “settled” law of the land is ludicrous, along with the request by MoveOn.org to have Congressional leaders arrested for sedition. It’s the job of Congress to defund or repeal bad law, and they are not bound to continue a law forced down our throats from a previous Congress.

Levin says the repubs don’t know how to deal w/ a radical. I don’t think that’s right. Two problems as I see it.

First, Repubs don’t know what the democrats actually are. They’re still referring to them as “our colleagues across the aisle.” They don’t know they’re un-American, anti-American marxist subversives. If you don’t know who the enemy is, you can’t fight him.

Second, repubs don’t know how to deal w/ a real radical because it takes gonads to fight like a man.

How is the Republican leadership any different from the Democrats? 87 Republicans in the House voted with 100% of the Democrats to give Obama everything he wants. How horrible was the damage to the economy and the people that was predicted for the sequester by all the fear mongering of doom and gloom? LOL. How horrible was the damage to the people and the economy that was predicted for the shutdown by all the fear mongering of doom and gloom? If it weren’t for Obama ordering his minions to make it as had as possible on his subjects, there would also have been no ill effects except for Obama’s tyranny. The path they just voted for America to follow, will have us hit $20 Trillion in national debt in just 2 more years. (At the August 2012 debt ceiling crisis they said we would hit it in 2020) It will… Read more »

We just gave our souls over to the devil. Obamacare is not about healthcare, you are now owned by Barack Hussein Obama. He will now know every rash, pimple, scar, tattoo on your very body. He will now decide your next breath. You will now spend the rest of your American life working 3 to 4 part-time jobs for emperor Obama so that he can spend $100 million dollars a year on lavish vacations and shower the Muslims (exempt from obamacare but we are not), illegals and his welfare buddies with the fruits of we the people, the few that are still working. And when you can no longer work, you will be exterminated and your belonging given to those who voted to keep the emperor in.

Exactly. The Republican establishment is comfortable in their place way up on the ivory tower or aristocracy. It is apparent that they don’t care very much about principle or various ideologies, even though they throw around the jingle words on cue. Their concern is merely about position. Any challenger to that, whether he be communist or constitutionalist is equally and enemy, in their view.

“…it may take 25, 30 years, but what the he__, we got the time and we gotta do it.”

That is one of Mark’s blind spots. We DO NOT have years or decades. Who knows, we may have weeks left; months if we’re lucky. Mark is watching the final stages of a socialist takeover, the last several moves before the bloodletting starts, and either he’s afraid to face the truth, or he honestly thinks we’ve got years to reverse course.

Mark, you’re a lawyer and in a crisis, you turn to the only rescue tools you know laws. They won’t work in this situation. Here’s a hint, Mark. Pay attention to the words:

I’m focussing on just three things now: praying, doing what little I can politically without investing my small savings in it, and looking for ways to move to an obscure, isolated location before it all comes apart. Hopefully the leftist government will be overwhelmed by its own incompetence, and we’ll all be a little safer. If there’s not a foreign invasion.

A little gallows humor comes to mind: a Far Side cartoon showing a couple of fishing buddies in the boonies in a small boat, looking at the urban horizon many miles away. The horizon is almost blotted out by mushroom clouds. One fisherman replies to the other, “I’ll tell you what this means, Earl: no closed season and SCREW the size limit.”

People say the GOP loses national elections because they run against the opposition rather than running for something. This is true, and it is because if they ran FOR any of the principles they are supposed to believe in, they would have to actually do something about them!

That is why we admire senators Cruz and Lee.

Mark, What about issue of fighting Dems Media covering up the revolutionaries?
“Free speech” is illusion. Republicans are attacked in Dems Media because GOP goes to Dems’ media only to give it ammunition to attack and to show compliance. For example: instead of stressing a delay by one year of O’Care for all people and removing privileges – GOP complained about impossibility of defunding O’Care. GOP twisted own party members arguments in order to show compliance to Dems agenda.
. The number one enemy of Republicans is Dems Media protecting Dems’s agenda
of fundamentally transforming America.

It drives me up the wall to hear the RINOs say things like, “Obamacare is the law of the land”. Excuse me, Barry and the Dems don’t respect the law (i.e. immigration, the 2nd amendment), so why should we? Especially a law that was rammed down our throats without any Republicans “yaying” it.

The American people, unfortunately, are not intellectually capable of rewarding or punishing good governance, fiscal responsibility, or avoiding more socialist and predictable gov’t policy disasters for the next generations. Politicians flood the American citizenry with too many roles and responsibilities that the masses just cannot keep up with who and what, and this blizzard of gov’t in every nook of life becomes blinding, and we’ve forgotten what little the fed gov’t is capable doing well, and that its a subtraction from state and local resources (and private sector capital) for worse outcomes.

Outstanding! I think that’s a big part of the grander strategy, to remove these idiots who pretend to be Republicans. It was bad enough that we had to fight the statists… but we also have to fight the elitists now too. So I think we need to primary these bastards: Alexander (TN), Chambliss (GA), Cochran (MS), Collins (ME), Graham (SC), Johanns (NE), McConnell (KY) in 2014 and then, clean up the House too (Boehner, etc.). Once we remove these elitists, we can then in a more unified manner, focus on the statists in 2016. THIS IS KEY to winning this nation back. Let’s get busy and make it happen! I’ll cover Georgia.

For most of my life, the Senators you listed where the Republican Party. It changed briefly under Reagan’s stewardship.

But it didn’t take long for George H. Bush to abandon Reagan’s conservatism, abandon his pledge to not to raise taxes and then proceed to break that promise and raise taxes which Democrats praised at that time. These same democrats used that vote against him when he faced reelection against Clinton and Perot.

The only future for the GOP is to begin electing Senators like Cruz, Lee and Paul. The GOP took control of the Tea Party to help them win in 2010. Now the RINOs are attacking those who saved their sorry arses.

The GOP will die unless they support their base and that base includes Tea Party conservatives. If they continue to follow the McCain’s and Graham’s, Republicans will be singing “Amazing Grace” at their funeral.

I agree with one slight modification: The Tea Party bailed out their sorry butts in 2010… the GOP NEVER took control of the Tea Party. You’d think the GOP would be grateful.
I’m especially ashamed of Senators Flake and Thune – former Tea Party darlings who sold us out (especially Flake). The same goes for those ‘CINOs’ (Conservatives in Name Only) in the House.
