Mark Levin: Democrats Want To End The American Republic


Mark Levin speaks about how the 2020 election is “crucial” to the future of the United States, arguing that Democrats want to pack the Supreme Court and add states to tip the balance of power in Congress to assume permanent power.

MARK LEVIN: This is our country. This is our election. Everything is on the table here. The Democrats want to change this country, turn it into a post-Constitutional, post-Republican type of society. Bernie Sanders’ agenda is on the table. They’re not hiding it from us. They’re going to burn down the Supreme Court by packing it. This was tried before and denounced. They’re going to add four Democrat senators to the Senate, they’ll have the power to do it. They’re going to change the power to legislate so nothing can be slowed down.

Nothing can stop them. They want to change our electoral process so only Democrats have representation to elect a president. Rural and suburban areas — the areas of the country which produce the food and the energy will have no representation. This is not a joke.

This is serious as a heart attack. This is what the election is about. This is why the 1619 project exists, to brainwash and destroy the minds of our kids, brainwash them against this country. You’ve seen this in the streets. The presidential nominee of the Democratic party doesn’t even acknowledge the existence of Antifa – a Marxist, communist organization that says it wants to destroy our country and burn our streets.

This election is a big deal. If you’re on the fence, I don’t know what fence you’re sitting on.

If you’re leaning towards Joe Biden, he says, “I am the Democratic Party.” He ain’t kidding. If you’re leaning towards Joe Biden, this is what you’re going to get. There’s a reason he won’t tell you whether he supports stuffing the Supreme Court — because he does. There’s a reason he won’t tell you about the nominees he has in mind — because they are radicals. This election is crucial. Are you Thomas Paine? Are you Paul Revere? Now’s the time to speak up.

He Found His Spine: Vulnerable Senator Cory Gardner Vows to Support Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee


Published By

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has often been at odds with the Trump movement, being a favorite of the GOP establishment’s Senate Leadership Fund. This is why his recent declaration that he will be supporting President Donald Trump’s choice to succeed the deceased Ruth Bader Ginsburg is so surprising. He made the announcement in a Twitter post on Monday.

“When a President exercises constitutional authority to nominate a judge for the Supreme Court vacancy, the Senate must decide how to best fulfill its constitutional duty of advice and consent,” Gardner said in his official statement.

“I have and will continue to support judicial nominees who will protect the Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and uphold the law. Should a qualified nominee who meets this criteria be put forward, I will vote to confirm,” he added.

The official statement can be seen here:

The president’s pick for the Supreme Court will certainly fit Gardner’s criteria. Trump has announced that he will be appointing a woman to the bench.

One top contender – Amy Comey Barrett – recently made a trip to the White House, as Big League Politics has reported:

Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.

Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.

Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.

President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.

Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.

Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.

The Republicans have a great opportunity to score a major political victory and really stick it to the extreme Left with this expedited SCOTUS confirmation. The fact that a moderate like Gardner is on board is a great sign that the confirmation is likely to occur before November’s election.

Kochs Gear Up To Back Trump In Supreme Court Battle


waving flagAuthored by Photo of Christopher Bedford Christopher Bedford | Senior Editor, The Daily Caller; Editor in Chief, TheDCNF  | 8:19 PM 01/30/2017

PALM SPRINGS, CALIF. — Charles Koch’s Seminar Network is prepared to launch digital ads and knock on doors in blue-leaning Trump-voting states in support of President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, a number of Koch network lieutenants told reporters Sunday evening. “Everything is on the table,” Americans for Prosperity chief government affairs officer Brent Gardner said.

Left-leaning states won by Trump will be a focus, particularly those with senators who are up for re-election in 2018. “A number of those folks are going to be necessary to the [60-vote] threshold required for confirmation,” Gardner said. Despite former President Barack Obama’s inability to gain traction for his Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, the Koch representatives are confident the issue is important to activists and voters.

The plan is new so details are not concrete, but senators Americans for Prosperity (AFP) will target will depend on how senators vote, they said. As for vulnerability, “November broadened the map,” AFP Chief Operating Officer Sean Langsing said, listing Wisconsin, Montana, Michigan and New Hampshire as examples of states more in play for libertarian politics.

Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennett, who won re-election in 2016, is another potential target for pressure, despite not being up for six years. Bennett has said that he would oppose the nomination of 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch, a top contender for the nomination, AFP Director of Policy Akash Chougule said.

Held twice a year, the weekend meeting is a gathering place for the Seminar Network, a large group of wealthy donors interested in libertarian and conservative causes. The weekend’s seminar, held in the temperate desert outside of Los Angeles, was the first since Trump’s election and inauguration.

The network spent hundreds of millions on advertising and advocacy for limited-government politicians — namely, Republicans — running for the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives, but notably stayed out of the presidential primaries and race. (RELATED: As Trump Presidency Dawns, Kochs Plan To Bring Hundreds Of Millions To Bear On Next Two Years)

And after scaling back early projections on their spending during the 2015-2016 cycle, the Seminar Network intends to ramp up spending on work to build grassroots networks and impact U.S. policy. That spending is expected to rise from the $250 million in the 2015-2016 cycle, to an estimated $300-400 million in the 2017-2018 cycle. (RELATED: Kochs Come Out Against Trump Travel Ban)

Despite a socially liberal trend in the donor network, Freedom Partners Vice President of Policy Andy Koenig said the they support a judge in the mold of the late Judge Antonin Scalia, a socially conservative strict constitutional constructionist whose seat has remained empty since he died unexpectedly in 2016.

At a Saturday night dinner kicking off the two-day seminar, Republican Sen. Mike Lee told gathered donors that Trump’s eventual nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court is going to be confirmed by the Senate. (RELATED: Mike Lee Is Certain The Senate Will Confirm Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee)

“It’s a fantastic list,” he said of the names floated as in the running for Trump’s nomination. “I’m very confident that whoever the president nominates is going to get confirmed…. I can tell you this: At the end of the day, any one of the people that President Trump is looking at will be confirmed by the Senate — we will make sure of that.”

Sen. James Lankford, who spoke alongside Lee, included confirming a Supreme Court justice among actions the Senate can take without 60 votes, implying that Republicans would use “the nuclear option” to pass their choice and would not need outside support. Seminar Network representatives declined to weigh in on the pros or cons of this strategy.

“We don’t want someone who is going to be legislating from the bench,” Seminar Network James Davis said. “We want someone who cares about the Bill of Rights.”

The Seminar Network is co-chaired by Charles Koch Institute President Brian Hooks and Mark Holden, general counsel for Koch Industries. Called “A Time to Lead,” the meeting was hosted at the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort and Spa, and is focused on local, grassroots initiatives Americans can take in what Hooks called “the key institutions of society”– “education, community, business and government.” (RELATED: Charles Koch Calls For Action: ‘We Might Not Have An Opportunity Again Like We Have Today’)

There are around 550 individuals included in the “principals” network meeting, which requires at least $100,000 donation to the network. In addition to these invited people, there were approximately 150 staff and speakers, Seminar Network spokesman James David told reporters. There was also a larger press presence than any previous conference has allowed.

Other elected officials in attendance included Republican Sens. Ben Sasse, Pat Toomey and David Perdue, as well as Reps. Jason Chaffetz and Marsha Blackburn. All elected officials attending the seminar were Republicans.
