Conservative Mark Levin, author of American Marxism, made the argument on his Fox News program, Life, Liberty & Levin this week that Americans in 2021 actually have “less liberty today than we did before the Revolutionary War.”
Of course, Levin was taken totally out of context by the pretorian guard media, however the crux of his argument is virtually impossible to dispute.
Breitbart News reported that in making his argument, Levin was particularly incensed at the nineteen Republicans who “jumped ship” and voted along with Senate Democrats to pass a behemoth $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” bill. He also rued the fact that Americans were going to be taxed to death in order to pay for the Democrats’ economy killing spending.
“I was thinking about this before the show. Do you realize we have, in many respects, less liberty today than we did before the Revolutionary War?” he asked. “Look at taxation…look at taxation. It’s a disaster.”
Leftists unsurprisingly seized on his comments and left out his qualification where he said, “in many respects.”
Clearly overall America is in a better place in some regards than prior to the American Revolution, but leftists, as they are wont to do, left the qualification out and criticized Levin. We won’t give their comments justification by publishing them here. Google it.
Or better yet, Duck Duck Go…tech tyrants and all.
Of course, part of the impetus for the American Revolution was “taxation without representation.” And for Levin, that is still an issue in 2021 America.
“Look at representation. Do we have representation today? Have you even tried to meet your member of Congress lately? It’s impossible. And if you do meet your representative, what are you going to tell them? They are passing 2,700 pages of omnibus spending bills, and they’re doing it in the middle of the night. You have no idea what’s in those bills,” Levin said.
“That is less liberty than you had when we didn’t have representation because what happens here is you get to vote, but you don’t get to know anything. And that is the great irony of what is taking place.”
Levin was no doubt referring to Pelosi’s use of proxy votes in the House, where representatives don’t have to show up in person to vote and instead have a “proxy” vote on their behalf. This was put in place ostensibly due to COVID when it was at its peak, but Pelosi has seized upon using the pandemic for her own political purposes.
“The Democrat Party has decided that it is going to take control of this country, and it is going to take control of this society and every aspect of this culture,” he said. “And it is doing so devouring one piece at a time. And we have reached a pinnacle now where we either claw our way back, or we are going to lose the country.”
Levin then took aim at the RINOs in the Senate, in particular Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell:
“Is it too much to ask the 19 Republicans of the United States Senate who sold out at least half of the American people to vote the right way?
You know, you look at the founders of this country; they put their lives and their fortunes on the line. All we ask them to do is vote the right way, and they can’t do it—led by Mitch McConnell, the McConnell Republicans, all 19 of them,” Levin said.
“Thirty did the right thing, but McConnell leads a minority of a minority—19. And he helped greased the skids for what’s going to be a massive expansion of already a massive welfare state.
And most of our laws are not made by Congress. They’re made by this massive welfare state—unelected bureaucrats, millions of them, who work in allegiance to and alliance with the Democrat Party.”
Levin accused the “McConnell Republicans” of laying the “way for what is now a massive transformation of America that will make the FDR New Deal look like a walk in the park.”
“Was it too much to ask 19 Senate Republicans to vote the right way?” Levin asked.
“We didn’t ask them to fight the British crown. We didn’t ask them to put their wealth on the line. We asked them to vote the right way. Instead, they sold us out.”
“Yes, you were freer before the American Revolution than we are today,” Levin concluded.
In case you missed a recent report we filed about Levin’s evisceration of Joe Biden, we invite you to:
Conservative firebrand Mark Levin is apoplectic about what he sees going on in America and in fact has written a book describing what he sees and what he feels patriotic Americans can do to fight back in American Marxism.
On his Fox News Sunday night program, Life, Liberty & Levin, the former Reagan Justice Department chief of staff went off.
Fox News reports that Levin, in describing the Biden presidency, said Biden is engineering “the most diabolical presidency and most diabolical Democratic Party since slavery.”
During the program in which he hosted economist Stephen Moore of The Heritage Foundation and former Trump adviser Stephen Miller, Levin sharply criticized the sudden hard-left turn of the Democratic party, calling the move toward a neo-Marxist ideology a “massive degrowth movement dress[ed] up as climate change and the Green New Deal.”
Levin slammed Biden’s willingness to go along with the hard-left wing of the Democratic party which he said is seeking to permanently turn the United States from the most successful capitalist country in the world to one that embraces what he calls “American Marxism.”
This, Levin said, is being done through a process of pushing through massive spending bills such as the current behemoth $3.5 trillion package disguised as “infrastructure” and so-called “voting rights.”
The voting bill in particular, along with the push for open borders is designed, Levin says, to nullify Republicans and gain control of “all levers of power” in a way that hasn’t been seen in a century and a half.
“The economics of that, how that’s going to impoverish so many Americans in the war on success, the destruction of the voting system to make it [so] only one party can ever win, blowing out the Republican state legislatures so they have no say on it,” he said.
“This is probably the most diabolical presidency and diabolical Democratic Party, probably since slavery,” Levin continued.
As history details, most of the Southern states where slavery—and Jim Crow segregation following the Civil War—was commonplace were controlled by the Democratic Party.
Levin then detailed what is currently standing between 245 years of American liberty and tyranny—what he referred to as the “collective thin reed”—as two “moderate” Democrats, Sens. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Joe Manchin of West Virginia.
“Every other single Democrat senator is marching right behind Chuck Schumer and the American Marxists,” Levin said.
Schumer (D-NY), the Senate Majority Leader only because Kamala Harris is vice president, is pushing S-1, the so-called “For the People Act” also known as the voting rights bill, and a $3.5 trillion human infrastructure bill which is light on “infrastructure” and heavy on social engineering programs.
Levin refers to that mega-spending bill as a package of “far-left ‘degrowth’ policies.”
Manchin and Sinema are the only ones standing between maintaining some semblance of a capitalist society and going full-bore neo-Marxist.
Levin asked Americans to reach out to both moderate senators and plead with them to break from the hard left of their party. Levin added that their role as one of the few congressional moderates remaining proves that our country is “always one election away from tyranny.”
“[Democrats] will ram through whatever they have to. They don’t play within the boundaries of the Constitution. They play outside the boundaries,” Levin said.
Levin reminded viewers that the Democrats’ razor-thin margin is dependent on the mid-term elections next year, with the ability to either be expanded, or (hopefully) eliminated. Levin cited key senate races in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin as examples of seats Republicans have a chance of regaining.
Appearing on Fox News’ Hannity last week, Levin also eviscerated the nineteen Republican senators, let’s call them reprobates, who supported the Democrats’ $1.2 trillion infrastructure scheme, calling them the “Bernie Madoffs of the Republican Party.”
Levin said it was disconcerting that a number of Republican senators don’t have the same concerns as he and many others have over the Democrats’ spending spree and Marxist agenda.
Miller, a former Trump speechwriter and presidential aide added later in the program that Biden is “the vessel that American Marxists have been waiting for their entire lives to advance their radical program.”
“What they are doing is they’re putting it all into one bill,” Miller said. “Everything you just listed off from the equity agenda to the destruction of voting rights to the climate agenda to, of course, the open borders agenda.”
Continuing, Miller said, “And the reason that if we did this in five or six bills, we would get crushed by the sheer weight of the exercise…it’s up to everyone watching this program, and it’s up to all the American people to say to their senators, no, do not pass this bill. Do not destroy our country. Do not take away our treasured American way of life.”
One wild card for Democrats, Miller noted, is Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ), who is up for reelection in 2022.
Miller said Kelly has reportedly shown reservations about the size and scope of the $3.5 trillion spending bill. Miller said Kelly hasn’t indicated on how he would vote on such a bill, but Arizona is still a purple state, so Kelly could possibly commit political suicide by voting for such a behemoth.
In May, Law Enforcement Today wrote about the coming collapse of America. We invite you to read our thoughts:
The following contains editorial content written by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA- We came across a podcast by a man named Jeff Dornik on the Freedom First Network and it reminded us of warnings we issued in the lead up to the 2020 presidential election. Sadly, everything Dornik says and everything we warned about is now coming to fruition. Is it too late?
The warning signs were there for anyone who opened their eyes to see and there were plenty of voices warning the American people what was headed our way. Yet here we are, at the precipice.
As Dornik says, there are three paths forward for our country, paths where we can head which are completely up to us as Americans. The left is consumed with attempting to undo within two years not only the four years of President Trump but the 245 years of the great experiment we call the United States of America.
So, what are our options?
Dornik suggests three possible courses as follows:
First, we can concede to the neo-Marxist left and dive further into socialism. Two, we can hold our ground and split our nation in two.
Or finally, we can continue to expose the corruption and try to turn the Titanic before it hits the iceberg in a last-minute attempt to save our great nation.
Heading into the November election, most people especially on the right knew how pivotal this election would be. As Dornik and numerous others warned, as did we, if Joe Biden won the election, we were 2/3 of the way toward potentially losing our country forever.
When the Senate headed to a runoff in Georgia, the stakes became even higher. And after January 5, the fate of our country was almost completely sealed.
In the lead up to the election, Democrats made no secret about what their intentions were; end the filibuster, make Washington, DC and Puerto Rico into states, pack the Supreme Court, and open the southern border to anyone who wanted to come here.
Once they won the two senate seats in Georgia, Democrats set about to push their agenda. The very first bills to come out of the House and Senate—HR1 and SB1—their highest priority bill is nothing more than an attempt to solidify in perpetuity their hold on power.
By completely federalizing elections, Democrats would never lose a presidential election again.
In the midst of a pandemic, Democrats’ highest priority was to empower themselves. Not to find out what happened with the coronavirus, but to solidify their power. This is also one of the reasons to push for open borders…to get more potential Democratic voters.
What else is in the bizarrely named “For the People Act?” They want to lower the voting age to 16, give felons the right to vote, implement ballot harvesting…all initiatives which will benefit Democrats…all to hold on to power. Nothing in HR1/SB1 benefits the American people as a whole. Only Democrats.
What else? Critical race theory has been around for a while, but since last May, it is on steroids. When Donald Trump was in the White House, he attempted to remove it from being forced down the throats of government employees.
But like everything else Donald Trump did, one of the first things Biden did was reverse the policy. Now we’re seeing all manner of woke videos coming out from inside our intelligence community (CIA) and the military (U.S. Army).
What are their other priorities? Reparations, equity, climate change, gutting our history through the bogus 1619 Project, gun control, ,defunding the police. Nothing is safe with these people.
The amount of destruction to our country that can be fomented within two years is mind-boggling. Four years? There is literally no coming back, as Dornik said.
So, what of the three scenarios? He believes the most likely scenario is the worst one…Conservatives (more accurately Republicans) “concede and go back to business-as-usual and the globalists take over.”
This of course would lead to the “fundamental change” Barack Obama talked about in 2008. To quote Dornik as America is changed “from the beacon of freedom and liberty to yet another socialist and globalist society.”
Under such a scenario, America will no longer be a free country; we agree with Dornik.
Under a second scenario, conservatives would actually take a stand, as we have seen indications of from several red states such as Texas, Florida and others with overreaching government mandates. Under this scenario, red states may ban together and push back against tyranny of the federal government by refusing to submit to illegal and unconstitutional laws.
Civil War part II? Not likely however unlike the last time, this would be more of an ideological war rather than actual combat.
Funny, it has actually been floated as an idea (albeit mostly tongue in cheek) that the country should be divided in half between red, freedom and liberty loving states and blue tyranny and socialist loving states and let’s see who is still standing in five years. Not (obviously) a likely scenario but the idea is fascinating.
Finally, the last scenario proposed by Dornik is, as he says the least likely but with it comes the greatest reward, not a “short-term sprint, but a long-term marathon.” We’ll let Dornik explain:
“We win this battle by changing the hearts and minds of the American people with the truth of the Gospel and of the freedom and liberty written into the Constitution of the United States of America. In this scenario, an army of American citizens would wake up to the evils of socialism and push back against the tyranny of the globalist agenda.”
Under this scenario we actually disagree with Dornik that it is the least likely.
We have seen across the country parents starting to speak out against policies being taught in schools such as critical race theory, speaking out against children being forced into distance learning because teachers refuse to go back to in-person learning, and finally against tyrannical emergency orders being issued by power-hungry Democratic (primarily) governors.
The United States Constitution was written to give power to the citizens, placing restrictions on the federal government, not the other way around. Dornik notes that our system was set up with a system of checks and balances, with the ultimate check and balance being the American people.
That is one of the reasons for the Second Amendment…not for “hunting” but to defend against a tyrannical government.
Radio and television host Mark R. Levin has written a book called American Marxism, which is currently available for pre-order on a number of sites including Amazon, Books-a-Million, Barnes & Noble, and other retailers.
Levin has promised that this book, aside from detailing much as Dornik did the Democrats’ run on our Constitutional Republic, will also provide a guidepost to help the American people fight back against the tyranny of Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and the other neo-Marxists in the Democratic Party.
Is option 3, the last option possible? Dornik thinks it has a slim chance of success, but we give the American people a little more credit than that.
“…if we pull it off, we’ll experience the saving of America and the preservation of the rights that we acknowledge are bestowed upon us by God Himself,’ Dornik said in closing, adding, “Do not get complacent. Do not give up. Now is the time to wage this battle over the minds and hearts of the American people.”
America can be saved. Time is running short, but we are a resilient people. We beat the world’s greatest military, the British. We survived a Civil War that tore our country apart. We survived Nazi and Japanese aggression in World War II.
Finally, we survived two passenger jets flying into the symbol of our economic might, the World Trade Centers and another into the symbol of our military might, the Pentagon. We can survive the socialists trying to take down our great nation.
The collapse of law enforcement will usher in the end of America as we know it
Editor note: Late last year, our National Spokesman Kyle Reyes launched an article about the challenges America is facing right now. It exploded. And it’s arguably even more relevant today than it was then.
Many of you have been asking about how you can get involved. We’d invite you to consider joining our membership program – LET Unity. We take the proceeds and reinvest them into capturing more of these stories.
The majority of our content producers for Law Enforcement Today are active, retired or wounded law enforcement officers. The revenue we make helps provide for their families and helps bring a TRUE voice about what’s happening in America.
For the rest of you… simply keep following, keep reading, and keep sharing.
I, [name], do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
It’s something that you don’t really consider when you’re young. You can do anything. You’re invincible.
But as we grow older, we start considering that mortality.
It’s time we start considering the mortality of America.
I spend a substantial amount of time working in two different arenas – the world of law enforcement and the business world.
By day, I run a marketing agency. Among the areas we work in, we do extensive work in the firearms industry. My travels take me across the country – often to some of the most rural parts of America.
By night, I am the National Spokesman for Law Enforcement Today. I’m not a police officer. I was tapped because I can do one thing cops can’t do. I can give them a voice. I can run my mouth and no agency can fire me.
That travel that I referenced – both in the business world and supporting the LE world – has afforded me countless opportunities to work side by side with some of the greatest patriots in America.
My closest friends are either in law enforcement or either active or retired members of some of the most elite military forces in America. And from our greatest warriors to our everyday citizens… I can tell you the underlying fear that so many are thinking about – and that’s the seemingly inevitable collapse of society if we don’t make some monumental changes.
As a Christian, I believe we are in the middle of some serious spiritual warfare. But you don’t have to be a Christian to understand that the very soul of America is under attack right now. And the rapid erosion of the Thin Blue Line has us sitting on a powder keg.
Historically, if you look at the collapse of some of the greatest empires in the world, it happened from within. Simply put, it raises the distinct danger that America won’t be conquered by foreign enemies … but rather from domestic ones.
When historians say that an empire fell, it means that the central state no longer exercised its broad power. That happens either because the state itself ceased to exist or because the state’s power was reduced as parts of the empire became independent of its control.
It typically doesn’t happen because of a single cause, but rather a long process. The main factors that historically lead to imperial collapse are:
- Economic issues
- Social and cultural issues
- Environmental issues
- Political issues
Now none of these factors are causes in and of themselves, but rather are ways to categorize causes.
What that means is you wouldn’t make a determination that Rome fell because of politics, but rather you’d explore political factors to understand the collapse. And in those issues are warning signs for us as Americans.
That brings me to the threat we face today.
Have you ever heard of something called the Cloward-Piven strategy? It’s not exactly something the mainstream media talks about… but it’s something you need to be aware of, because it’s what we’re facing in America today.
American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven created the political strategy in 1966. The idea behind it is to overload the U.S. public welfare system to create a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a socialist system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty”.
If that doesn’t describe what we’re seeing from Democrats who are running for POTUS right now, I don’t know what does. But it’s a much bigger threat than you might realize. That’s because it’s so incredibly pervasive. It’s poisoning the very roots of America.
And it calls to mind the words of Jefferson:
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.”
We are seeing groups here in America demanding open borders. Demanding the decriminalization of crossing into our country illegally.
At the same time, across our great country, we are seeing the CRIMINALIZATION of law enforcement. It’s gotten so bad in states like the People’s Republic of California and Connecticut that we’re seeing the crash and burn of morale in law enforcement.
We’re seeing agencies desperate for officers, because as more and more retire (or count down the minutes to retirement), we see a deficit in the number of incoming recruits. After all, why would you want to live a life of service when you’re just going to be attacked for that service?
We see political activists masquerading as police chiefs. We see them working hand in hand with liberal politicians to not only attack the rights of law-abiding citizens, but also to destroy the morale of their own departments. We watch as they flat out disrespect the oath of office they took and put officers in no-win situations.
If I were to design a road map for how to collapse America, starting with law enforcement, here’s what it would look like.
Step one: Divide the protectors.
The refusal to allow rank and file patrol officers to cooperate with federal law enforcement to uphold the law. It’s a slap in the face to Americans and it’s a dereliction of duty. It’s also a clear and intentional move to create a divide between local, state and federal law enforcement. Divide the protectors… conquer a society.
Step two: Divide the supporters.
Force officers to choose between enforcing unconstitutional legislation like Red Flag laws, which deny citizens of their right to due process… and providing for their own family.
Make cops the bad guys. Take the people who have historically supported law enforcement and convince them that cops are now the enemy. Divide the supporters… conquer a society.
Step three: Remove their protection
Make cops afraid to be cops. Encourage disrespect on them like water bucket attacks. Don’t go after the criminals who attack them. When officers arrest criminals, let them back out on the street within hours because a liberal judge determined that the violent suspect with a lengthy criminal history isn’t actually a threat.
Then threaten law enforcement officers that if they do their job, they’ll be investigated. That if they have to fight for their lives, they’ll end up being charged. Remove both their desire and their ability to police.
Step four: Flood America
By some estimates, one million people will make illegal entry into America this year.
There are fewer than 850,000 law enforcement officers in America. Do the math.
Now let criminals create havoc in society but instead of deporting them or actually cracking down on crime, let Americans know that the real problem is guns owned by law abiding citizens and pass legislation to take away their rights.
Step five: Destroy our homes
Own the media. Own Hollywood. Force feed Anti-American, socialist and communist policies into our homes and our education system. Convince our children that right is wrong and wrong is right. Take God out of society, destroy the family structure and teach everyone that the solution to your problems is in the form of pills, porn and the government.
Step Six: Bypass Congress for gun control
Have “private businesses” like Dicks and Walmart determine what you can and can’t buy. Allow Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, YouTube, LinkedIn and snap determine what you can see and what you can say… because it’s not a violation of the 1st Amendment if it’s done by private enterprise.
Step Seven: Use “social justice” to vilify love of country
Take every patriotic American who wants to see a better country for their children and call them a racist, etc. if you don’t agree with them. Then mass report them on social media to make sure their accounts are cancelled and their voices are shut down.
Then say you think they’re a threat and have a judge determine that combat veterans and our nation’s greatest warriors need to be disarmed because of post-traumatic stress. Then force officers to go to war with their own brothers and sisters.
It’s happening right in front of our eyes. And it’s starting with a full onslaught against our law enforcement officers in every way, shape and form.
Want to save America? We need to start by understanding the enemy. And sometimes the biggest threat that an empire faces is the enemy within.
We hope you’ll consider getting in the fight with us. Here’s what Law Enforcement Today – the largest police-owned media outlet in America – is doing.
We at Law Enforcement Today want to make our stance very clear.
We strongly and firmly stand behind the Second Amendment, companies that keep civilians and law enforcement officers safe through products and innovation, and the men and women who serve and protect our communities and our country.
We are launching a new series of options to help our partners and other patriotic businesses to be able to connect with consumers. While we can’t replace Google, Bing or Facebook – we sure can provide options to ensure that these companies and our brothers and sisters have a voice.
We welcome with open arms companies that openly support law enforcement, and we are proud to offer them options to get their products to market.
We started noticing the problems a couple of years ago. Social media was scaling back the reach of content that it didn’t believe people should see.
Not that there was anything offensive about it. We’re talking about pro-police videos, stories about patriotic Americans and more.
And from our perspective, that created a huge problem. We have some of the greatest warriors in the world. Yet their voices and their stories were being buried.
The mainstream media, on the rare occasion that it would tell some of these stories, would give you only a piece of them. They’d cram as much as they could into a 90 second segment, slap their bias on it and that was it.
We needed to fix it. And so we are.
Law Enforcement Today (LET) is proud to announce the launch of LET Unity – a new home focused on bridging the gap between civilians and civil servants. We’ve merged with The Whiskey Patriots to massively expand content, rolling out hundreds of videos to members.
Many of those in our focus groups dubbed it the “Netflix of the law enforcement community”. But the truth is, it’s so much more.
The first officer in the door at the Pulse nightclub shooting.
Emergency responders from the Parkland shooting.
The bomb squad that responded to the Aurora movie theater massacre.
Survivors of the Dallas five killings.
The first Marine Guard hostage in the Iran crisis.
The CIA agent who started a counter human trafficking company.
World War II veterans.
And so, so much more.
The membership is less than the cost of two coffees a month, and those who sign up for an annual membership will get some surprise bonuses in the mail. We decided to charge a nominal fee so we could take all of the proceeds and reinvest them into capturing more of these stories. The majority of our content producers for Law Enforcement Today are active, retired or wounded law enforcement officers. The revenue we make helps provide for their families and helps bring a TRUE voice about what’s happening in America.
On top of that, we’re opening up the platform to some well-known podcasters who are going to be joining the team with some incredible content soon.
We have a problem in society. Censorship has created an existential threat to democracy. But even worse is the risk we run that some of these incredible stories of patriotism, hope, faith and our Sheepdogs would be lost.
We’ve launched a series of content with Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) to share the stories of survivors. We will also be dropping a weekly law enforcement focused newscast that addresses some of the most important topics in the country… and helps bridge the gap between those who serve and those whom they serve.
On top of that, we’ll soon be rolling out a series of private discounts and special promotions to members only as a “thank you” for being a part of the family.
You can also download the app to watch the content right from your iPhone.
We hope you’ll join us in this journey, knowing that your membership is going to give a voice to those who have been silenced for so long.
If you are one of the many companies out there that’s being censored – or you’re worried about what’s to come – don’t hesitate to reach out today. I can be reached at [email protected]
We will not be silenced. You shouldn’t be either.
God bless you all, and God bless America.
Want to make sure you never miss a story from Law Enforcement Today? With so much “stuff” happening in the world on social media, it’s easy for things to get lost.
