MARK LEVIN: These sleazy intimidation tactics will not work

Mark Levin is now being attacked by McConnell’s NRSC ‘hit man’ and he’s not taking it sitting down:

Mitch McConnell’s National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) hit man, some idiot named Brad Dayspring, does not intimidate me and will not silence me with his sleazy inside-the-beltway tactics. In fact, I am more fired up than ever.

Liberty and Tyranny is nearly 5 years old, sold nearly 1.3 million copies, and was on the New York Times best-seller list for half a year during 2009. The Senate Conservative Fund (SCF) has been using the paperback version of the book in recent months to encourage donations in support of conservative candidates. This has nothing to do with best-seller lists that date back to 2009. I am told that the number of books distributed by the SCF represents about 3 percent of the total. In addition, the SCF worked directly with the publisher, not me, in making these arrangements, and SCF apparently received a deep discount because of the bulk purchase of the paperbacks as would others who use the book for promotion purposes. I am told this is typical.

Now, let me be clear. I hold McConnell and the chairman of the NRSC – Jerry Moran of Kansas – personally and politically accountable for the sleazy intimidation tactics of their current and former staffers. My opposition to McConnell’s re-election is underscored by pathetic behavior like this. Conservatives should not give a dime to the NRSC, money which is used to pay the salaries of these hit men and empower McConnell, et al.

I will address this more fully on my radio program tonight.

  1. This doesn’t surprise me. Every time I hear about one of these cookie cutter books going to #1, I have a good chuckle. Yes I agree with most of the conservative principles mentioned in the book, but who buys all these books that say the same thing over and over?

    1. Clearly you’ve never read any Mark Levin book at all if you would categorize anything he writes as “cookie cutter.” You perfectly illustrate the saying, “a man is only suspected of being a fool until he opens his mouth and removes all doubt.”

  2. Because the progs fill warehouse with their books to up the ratings, they accuse conservatives of the same thing. Typical libtard projection.

  3. Form The Tea Party Now! I will vote only for a Tea Party (True) Conservative Candidate! No More Voting For The Lesser Evil For Me! The Republican Party Sucks Too By The Way!

  4. Mark Levin, we need a completely new party to defeat both the democrats and the big government Republicans, not a “new Republican Party” as you have been saying recently.

    It is a total waste of our efforts and resources to try and take the Republican Party back. This will never happen in anyone’s lifetime.

    A new party based on the founding principles of our nation will accomplish more than our endlessly wasting our time trying to take the Republican Party back.

    1. unfortunately reality is going to destroy your idea. There are about 20% of voters who will hear about your new party, and that’s the pool you have to convince. The other 80% are going to vote their party as always, and will beat your candidate. The only way to win is to take over one of the existing two parties. That’s all. I don’t care if you don’t like it, that’s the fact.

      1. Obviously you haven’t been keeping up on current events.

        In 2010, the grassroots did take back the GOP from the ruling elite in the primaries and before our candidates got to the general election the vast majority of those grassroots candidates had been turned by the very very deep pockets of the ruling elites in Washington. By the time they were sworn in to office, the overwhelming majority of them were owned lock stock and barrel by ruling elites in Washington so your notion that you can “take the GOP back” is just an outright delusion which a lot of people fool themselves into to believing is going to work.

        That’s reality sir. You can’t take this party back no matter how much you want to delude yourself in to thinking you can – need I say any more than Chris Krispy Kreme Christi – the hope of all Big Government republicans AND democrats.

        And it is also reality that Romney didn’t lose because conservatives didn’t vote for him. Conservatives, including myself did vote for him. It was a lot of big government liberal republicans in the Northeast who did not vote for him just as they did not vote for Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia.

        And if you can’t take the GOP back – which you won’t – then what? What is your alternative besides surrender?

        Well we are at “then what” in the history of our nation. And I’m not interested in surrender.

        And that’s reality too.

    1. I honestly think that the Republicans are afraid of being elected. I think The republicans are the perpetual second stringers in this nation and that the only thing they despise about Obama is that he uses the same, weak, lead from behind style.

      A pox on the RNC.

  5. I sent my first donation to the SCF today, and I made it a good one. SCF thanks you, Mitch.

      1. Thank you Duckie! Good to see you too!! I’m here more than you know … I stop in a couple of times a day, but I do admit I was much more vocal in the past. I’m getting back in the swing of things …. which I attribute to Ted Cruz, who has made me care again. For a while, I felt all was lost (not to mention, I lost my dad in 2013, so I had a rough year personally). Good to be back among friends. 🙂

  6. A desperate man will take desperate measures. McConnell is a loser who is being primaried…let the games begin!

  7. Cannot wait for the radio response. McConnel’s going to be wearing another set of Depends, for the next few days, to staunch the bleeding.

  8. Taking on “the Great One” is something I would recommend against.
    He is a REAGAN/Constitutional FIGHTER and there is a lot of Conservatives behind him all the way who actually love this man !
    Kind of like tugging on SUPERMAN’s cape if you get my drift.
    He actually cracks me up, I really ENJOY him ranting his way through the idiots M-F. And this man rarely takes off, and is working for us all weekend
    usually to prepare his shows and books.
    An Awesome Patriot.

  9. Hey, I was reading posts and all of a sudden the words got thicker and easier to read. Cool! Thanks !

    P.S. Oooops, they got skinny again. Oh well, can read them either way.

  10. I don’t care if it’s a conservative or liberal who uses this type of sleazy attack on a media pundit. It’s always a losing strategy and a sign of weakness by the politician.

    Mark Levin if he chooses, will have a radio show and website long after McConnell has left office. You are either very ignorant or in a desperate race to maintain office to use such a tactic.

  11. I’d love to see Boehner and McConnell lose, and even if it’s to a Dem. At least we don’t have to worry about figuring out who’s on our side.

    1. A fence post is better than ANY (D)em-wit…But ALL (R)inos should be primaried..enough of the “go along to get along” CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. I agree. I think the best thing to do in Boehner’s district, is to stay home an let the D win. It’s one way to get him out of there. It’s only one seat, and what good is it anyway. He always does whatever the left wants. He should just switch parties.

  12. another sign that the GOP Establishment is most definitely AT WAR with the Conservative Electorate

    it can’t be hidden …. the power structure of both Private Political Parties in DC, who are responsible for bringing Constitutional America to the brink of DEBT DOOM, must be depowered …. and it is *WE The People* led by *WE The People* Leadership who must do it ….

    Ted Cruz: You don’t get a $17 trillion debt without a whole lot of bipartisan cooperation.

    Ted Cruz: “”I don’t work for the party bosses in Washington. I work for the people of Texas. And I fight for them.”

    I believe that The Cruz Missile is Madame Steel Spine’s point-man in DC

  13. mark was going off on the show last nite. im reading a book called “Extortion” on what goes on in DC..our reps have now become extortionist, they are now the aggressor going after capitalism.

  14. Trying to smear Mark Levin? Really?
    That Dayspring must be a real numbskull (I’m being polite!).

  15. People like McConnell will never get why they will never have the popular appeal that someone like Mark Levin has, but it’s as clear as day to the rest of us. He is so wrapped up in himself, rather than in service to our country, that he doesn’t understand Mark’s criticism of people like himself.

    “Levin is aggresively critical of us? O.K., we’ll attack him even more aggresively. Then people will abandon him and run to us.” What he doesn’t understand, and never will, is that Mark’s criticisms are substantive. He and his croniies criticisms are dishonest and personal. Big differance. And we’re going to abandon Mark and embrace him instead? Pathetic!

  16. What Mitch McConnell doesn’t realize…and perhaps it’s his many long years thinking he is an important person, understandably, that going head to head with Mark Levin is NOT in his best interest…here’s a clue for you *itch..err. Mitch…You are too stupid to stand in the same room as Mark, let alone utter the man’s name in contempt, you pompous windbag!

  17. Fox News was just doing a puff piece on the Chamber of Commerce saying how hard they are fighting against Obamacare. We all know what they are really fighting for and it is not for American workers.

  18. Wow…is this a sign that McConnell is getting desparate or what? I don’t even know what poll numbers are like in the good state of KY but to attack Levin is just a sign to me that McConnell is worried! Good! He should be!

    Don’t think Levin is going to let this one go! Watch his radio ratings go through the roof! Good!

      1. HaHa! Money and booze probably works in a lot of states unfortunately! While I understand being an incumbent carries far more weight in many voter’s minds, I just wonder if people in KY are just as fed up with the status quo as everywhere else. Seems to me if Brad ‘Daysprung-a-leak’ isn’t so worried about it (or for that matter, McConnell) then why go bother to try and intimidate Mark Levin? His book sold to Senate Conservative Fund was legit as Levin clearly stated he did not try and curry favor with the organization. He had nothing to do with it! But these sleeze-balls make up stories only to stir up the pot and create controversy, to distract from McConnell’s poor performance!

        McConnell is doing it cause he’s uncertain of his fate! Question is: Will people buy into it?

  19. Interesting. This approach taken by the NRSC is a tactic of the progressive left. There is no better way to show a politician as a progressive RINO, than to display their devious and shameful tactics that match their counterparts on the left.

    Nuff said. McConnell MUST go.

  20. It is time for Americans to take over BOTH parties. If you have a couple of nickels to rub together then bring them forward. I am up for this fight against these greedy corporate bastards that support this scam we are living under!

  21. I personally bought 3 copies… No money from the Senate Conservatives Fund was used for these purchases.

  22. I haven’t and won’t give any money to Republicans unless I know they are conservatives and I will donate to individual campaigns. They wanted a war so it looks like they now have one.

    Time for the Constitutional Freedom Party.,

    Let’s get rid of the RINO party.

    1. Refreshing, somone (sjmom) that actually wants to do something about the RINO/GOP than just complain, which does nothing!

      1. Thanks, but I’m weary of complaining and if that’s all I do I’m no better than the GOP. The RINOS gotta go.

  23. About eight years ago I received a mailing from the NRSC wanting a donation. I informed them I would not donate one dime until they pushed for conservatism. Eight years later, still haven’t heard back from NRSC.

  24. Jerry Moran recently introduced an amendment to the unemployment bill to expand immigration. What an idiot! He either has no concept of basic economics or he is nothing, but an RNC bagman. Well, maybe both apply.

  25. So what? We need to get back to our Constitution to SAVE THIS
    COUNTRY! And if that means that Mark’s book was bought by every single American then that is FANTASTIC! Go Senate Conservative funds!

    The real question is what has Mitch McConnell and National Republican Senatorial Committee done to save this country from Marxist and communist? I would say McConnell and NRSC are progressives and align themselves with Obama, Biden, Hillary, in addition to Chis Christie!

    1. If McConnell were around during the Revolution, he would have been a crown loyalist. I imagine he and his cronies would have tried to impune Thomas Paine’s motives for writing ‘Common Sense’ and tried to disparage its popularity.

  26. McConnell has to go. That’s a new low.

    Matt Bevin is running against McConnell. If people are serious about getting rid of rinos, we need to put our money and efforts into DOing something- volunteer time and whatever it takes to get these candidates names out to others.

    Matt Bevin is running for US Senate against incumbent Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell.

    Matt was commissioned as an officer in the US Army after graduating from Washington and Lee University, ultimately rising to the rank of Captain. He spent four year on active duty with primary responsibilities as the 5th Mechanized infantry Division Artillery’s counterfire officer.

    Matt Bevin is no stranger to hard work and personal responsibility. Since moving to Kentucky with his family in 1999, Matt founded several local firms and invested in other companies in Kentucky and around the US. He also began to help out at Bevin Bros., a bell manufacturing company that had been in his family since 1832. The company faced bankruptcy. In 2011, Matt became President and in a year, he paid off all the company’s debts and back taxes, modernized the business model and saved jobs.

    Matt is a firm believer in this country’s founding ideals. Individual Liberty, limited government and constitutional principles. He believes it’s time to hold our representatives in Washington accountable.

    On the issues, Matt:

    Believes in enforcing Immigration laws already on the books, allowing states to enforce federal immigration laws and cutting off welfare benefits to those who come here illegally.

    Believes Obamacare is a disaster and would encourage increasing competition by allowing people to buy health insurance across stae lines and common sense tort reform among other ideas.

    Is Pro Life and will vote against any bill for federal funding for abortions and believes we must encourage ways which makes adoption easier. Matt and his family don’t just advocate pro life ideas, they live them.

    Believes the Second Amendment is the lynchpin of the Bill of Rights, as it was designed to protect all of the other Amendments. The right to bear arms is not just limited to ownership but includes the right to carry as well and he will fight to fully restore the Second Amendment by pushin for a national right to carry legislation.

    Is a believer in term limits. If elected to the US Senate, Matt will not serve more than two terms.

    Please help and support this great American who believes in the vision of America that our Founders envisioned!! Help Matt Bevin to defeat politics as usual and work to get him to the US Senate!

            1. absolutely. rinos/rnc/gop/rove hate conservatives, after all conservative control of the party would threaten all the bribe money they rake in from lobbyist. that’s why there has not been any real action on the irs attacks on the tea party

      1. This is great. Thanks! Mandy Connell used to be our local morning talk host. Funny, after she left, Trey Radel took the spot before running for Congress… sigh.
        Anyway thank you!

  27. I feel a Levin surge coming this afternoon. The progs are bringing out the knives. Levin is bringing a cannon.

    1. Two down votes to your comment? I can only assume we have some RINO and/or Dem/Marxist operatives lurking this thread.

      1. Yes, we do. I could ‘smell’ them before I noticed the down votes. It’s an election year and we have two foes. Rinos and communists. Ready for battle…

          1. They’re bad because much of the time they disguise their motives quite well.

            BUT they can’t help themselves in the end. They just MUST tell conservatives how ignorant and stupid we are for not supporting progressives that they flush themselves out.

            That is when they become more ad hominem than the commies. What a great group to belong too.

    1. we must do all we can to rid ourselves of the rinos.
      rnc/gop/rove love everything oblamer does, after all its what the lobbyist bribe them to do. the progpublicans need to go.

          we have to do everything we can to inform voters and defeat the progpublicans

        1. Exclusive: Tea Party Leadership Fund to Recruit Boehner Primary Challenger

          The Tea Party Leadership Fund will announce on Friday an effort it plans to undertake to search for a candidate to primary House Speaker John Boehner, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.

          The group is funding a $25,000 ad campaign against Boehner and a petition drive at with a goal of collecting 1 million signatures by Jan. 31. Radio’s Rusty Humphries, a spokesman for the Tea Party Leadership Fund, is leading the group’s effort to find a candidate.

          “John Boehner has declared war on conservatives demanding lower taxes and limited government,” Humphries said in a statement provided exclusively to Breitbart News. “Today we declare war on him. We intend to send a message to his fellow ‘Republicans In Name Only’ that such ideologically bankrupt leadership must come to an end.”

          The group’s release states it has polling that shows at least half of Republicans in Boehner’s Ohio district are willing to support a GOP candidate who is more conservative than the Speaker.

          If the effort hopes to be successful, the group will have to move fast. The filing deadline for a candidate to enter the race to run against Boehner in the Ohio GOP primary is 4 p.m. on Feb. 5. The primary is on May 6.

          In the release provided to Breitbart News, Humphries provides a list of things that the Tea Party Leadership Fund is prepared to do in its search for a Boehner primary candidate. He said the group will be “interviewing and vetting potential candidates to assure that we endorse the most qualified, most conservative and most viable candidate that will truly make John Boehner ‘feel the heat.’”

          In addition, the group is planning a “district-wide phone outreach” to educate constituents about Boehner’s record in the House and a “massive online and social media campaign” to reach out to voters in the district and around the country about the effort. The group will also be running ads in print, on television, on radio, on billboards, and online throughout Boehner’s district.

          Assuming a candidate is found and endorsed, Humphries stated his group will engage in a “historic get-out-the-vote effort” during the primary to ensure enough conservatives in his district vote against him.

          “When we reach 1 million petition signers, we will show John Boehner, the liberal media, and every other congressional sell out that the Tea Party is serious about returning America to greatness,” Humphries said.

          The specific issues the Tea Party Leadership Fund lists as the reason for its efforts against Boehner cite how he continued “the funding of Obamacare” by “defeating Ted Cruz’s efforts to defeat Obama’s signature legislation” and “doing Barack Obama’s bidding by raising taxes.”

          The group also references how Boehner helped House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) facilitate cuts to pensions for “veterans and disabled vets, while protecting his own bloated pension” during the budget deal Ryan cut with Senate Budget Committee chairwoman Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA). They say Boehner also engaged in “further bankrupting America by raising the debt ceiling without any meaningful concessions” and that Boehner is now trying to go pass amnesty legislation.

          Concerning immigration reform, the Tea Party Leadership Fund writes that Boehner has agreed “to pass amnesty for those illegal immigrants who have broken our laws.” The group further cites how Boehner, after the 2012 election, purged conservatives like Reps. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), Justin Amash (R-MI), Walter Jones (R-NC), and David Schweikert (R-AZ) from key committees so as Boehner could “remove conservative objections to his liberal policies.”
