House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is among the "munchkin" Republicans who are afraid of alienating women by opposing reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, conservative talk-radio host Mark Levin said Wednesday night. Levin blasted Cantor for "going to war" with conservatives by pressing them to support the Democrats´ version of the bill. ""Mr.Cantor, I hate to tell you this: We´re already in political war with you," Levin said. "I mean Eric Cantor is the number-two Republican in the House," Levin said. "He´s the majority leader because we, the conservatives,
Comments: This is just not good for the party. I remember Cantor going on Fox News right after their retreat in Virginia and he was flat and uninspiring to say the least.
I liked Levin a lot better when he was just an occasional appearance on Limbaugh´s program, many years ago. The constant yelling has worn down my patience these days, however. The man needs to see about a calm-down pill.
I liked Cantor a lot better when he was just an occasional conservative presence in Congress. The constant capitulation to liberals has worn down my patience these days, however. The man needs to see about a stimulant pill so he can show a little concern for the Constitution.
Anyone that picks Cantor over Levin must be a Moderate, at best. "Levin yells too much, Palin´s voice irritates me, Rush is too rich....." Moderates are so like Leftists. They talk about silly things, not facts.
Screaming Levin shows an awful lot of "courage" tearing people apart and hocking berries and lightweight books from the confines of his gold plated bunker. Canter, Boehner, and every orher "elected" official that must actually appear sane in public have a much less charmed existence. I´d like to see Screaming Levin take some time off from tossing rhetorical grenades in the general vicinity of Republicans from the bunker and actually run for an office -- any office. He might learn him some humility as voters kick him in the teeth.
Ok, I´ll bite, #13. How in the world is a solid conservative with, as an earlier poster pointed out, the same ACU rating as revered Jim DeMint, qualify as a "RINO", much less the person lacking sufficient male equipment you describe? Do we have no loyalty to any of our own who has stuck his neck out on our behalf in the past? And must our criticisms be so crude and loud? Is Mark Levin the standard and if Levin yells "froggy", we all jump?
Mark Levin´s passion for equal respect for the inherent AND Constitutionally secured Rights of each individual citizen equally in America the beautiful is inspiring! It is refreshing and invigorating. It expresses what many are thinking & wakes up the slumbering! ...It seems to have become alarmingly, ´missing in action,´ inside the dems´ beltway Boomtown lately. Freedom in the USA has endured throughout our history because of such passion for America & that Life, Liberty & Pursuit of Happiness for which it stands!
America´s ship of state´s determined course toward that, ´shining city on the hill,´ has always been enthusiastically embraced & encouraged by such passion as Levin´s for freedom!
Freedom is rare in human history & is fragile to maintain, as the blood of patriots prove. This sovereign country is the most exceptional & successful democratic republic, which it is, in all of history because of America the Beautiful´s Founders who labored to express Liberty´s true concepts with clear & understandable wording, risked their all as they prayed for Wisdom to express the Constitutional principles upon which the U.S.A. was established. Such determination requires integrity, selflessness, courage and thus demands passion for freedom.
But freedom won can be lost to tyranny due to lethargy. ´´´Eternal vigilenge is the price of freedom.´´ Pres. Reagan reminded us that the loss of freedom is always but one generation away. Let´s have more of Levin´s wisdom, knowledge and passion for Constitutional freedom in America´s Boomtown beltway and throughout the land!
#18, your "big picture" is fuzzy, seemingly coming into and out of focus depending on which person has upset you on any given day. My opinion is that we shouldn´t be so frivolously warned off our own people.
How far down the drain does the nation have to go before some Republicans think it´s ok to show some passion? When I saw the spot on Cantor and wife on 60 Minutes - it was uh-oh time. Thank God we have Mark Levin - still smarter than Boehner, Mitch and little Eric put together.
I think Mark mentioned that this law could make it a crime to raise your voice and other not so uncommon things that happen in relationships at times. The thing is, once these type of things are on a person´s record, good luck with that background check for that hunting rifle. Hell, it´s hard enough to pass it now. I was put on a hold last fall, trying to buy a squirrel shootin´ .22. I´ve had a CCW permit for years and a spotless record and someone in a basement in Quantico or wherever just didn´t think it was important enough to see if I was the same person they must have confused me with. In this gun grabbing era, we should all be on guard for anything such as this bill- for which Cantor probably got a special dinner and a backrub from Diane Feinstein.
What a treat, just saw/heard the brilliant Mark Levin on Neil Cavuto!!!! Great, two times in one day...
If it weren´t for Mark Levin there wouldn´t be a Landmark Legal Foundation... The man is fighting for our country as well as your rights not to like him. At least he is fighting, more than I can say for the entire leadership of the GOP.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Barack Obama delivered a statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela yesterday. During his speech he told about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College. “I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings.” But, Barack Obama forgot to mention that his speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists. Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
