Mark Levin: "The Republican Party
Is Going To Split, And There´s
Going To Be Two Parties"

Real Clear Politics, by Ian Schwartz

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/19/2013 11:08:24 AM

On the Monday night broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio program, Mark Levin warned the Republican party will split unless RNC chairman Reince Priebus and House Speaker John Boehner are thrown out. MARK LEVIN: The autopsy report. They don´t even know how to name a report. The autopsy report. Here´s the deal, folks: Reince Priebus was ahead of the Republican National Committee when Romney lost. Why hasn´t he been fired? Why hasn´t he been fired? Karl Rove ran the biggest independent PAC in America, or one of them.

Comments:
If we continue down the path Priebus wants to take I´m afraid he is right. That would be so destructive.

I think it is inevitable that a split will occur because a party has to stand for something to have any meaning. The Republican party as it is co-opted now has no foresight and stands for nothing.

Bravo. Let it happen. Perhaps there will be a party that believes in something to oppose the Marxist Democrats.

Right now, the Republican Party stands for nothing except promoting the political careers of its leaders.

To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, "I didn´t leave the republican party, the republican party LEFT me"
Long ago changed my affiliation to independent, since the republicans became the right leg of the socialist party of america !

"A house divided against itself cannot stand"[Bible] So better to get smart and take over existing party machinery. Only the Democrats will applaud a divided Republican Party. Then they will win. Remember Ross Perot? Go enmass to your caucuses and elect new township, county, state, and national chairmen. Also be careful who is on the Rules Committee. Have your own slate of Rules Committee candidates.

If it is to happen, please, Lord, let it be soon. We need to get our ducks in a row and prepare. That is a "we" only after the victors manage to count the survivors. Frankly, few will be standing on either side. Only if united do we have the chance to save our nation; only divided do we have a chance to save our principles.

Should the Republican party split, look for continued power in the hands of the democrats.

Remember Ross Perot.....and, remember President Reagan: His “three-legged stool” — a three-legged stool cannot stand if one of the three legs is missing.

Well said #11. What was the real difference between the Democrats and the alternative, such as Romney, McCain, Bushes, and Dole? We do not have two major parties. We have Marxist and Marxist-Lite.

I, for one, am dying to unite with those who will fight against the Marxists for freedom. Can´t fight with a pansy Republican Party who just wants to "reach across the aisle."

This is just as stupid as the republicans who think that since the Mexicans voted for Obama, we should let in more Mexicans who will still vote for democrats.

Divided we fall. We need to stand against waste and irresponsibility. We need to bombard the airwaves with commercials that extoll the virtues of marriage, hard work and living within one´s means. Focus on what makes us the same; i.e. the desire for good schools, safe streets and jobs, rather than trying to set people apart from each other. Enough of this diversity crap. That will get the votes without destroying the republican party.

The old line republicans are too busy trying to kill off conservative influence to mount a successful national presidential campaign.

They feel more threatened by conservatives than by democrats.

Democrats don´t want to totally kick them away from the pig slops trough - they just want to keep them second in line.

Conservatives have strange ideas about small government, being honest, honoring the constitution and stopping politicians from looting the treasury and the taxpayers.

As frustrated as I am with the current Republican establishment, this is a terrible idea. The party needs to stop navel-gazing and stand on conservative ideas and principles with broad appeal, like personal and fiscal responsibility, lower taxes, unleashing the private sector, etc. Things like Social Security reform should be left until after the economy improves. A stronger economy will strengthen social security because more people will be paying taxes. The theme should be The Economy--repeated over and over again. Issues like abortion and gay marriage should be left to the states. They are not issues for the Federal government. I hope the Supreme Court agrees on gay marriage, which should put that issue to rest.

The 2010 midterm landslide was a direct result of grass root activism by TEA Partiers.

Karl Rove and the rest RINO quislings then proceeded to stab the Republican Party in the back by declaring war on the TEA Partiers.

Dear RNC: What have you got to lose by trying to be Conservative for a change? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. It´s time to pop the bubble you live in and make some general observations. The History Channel has the mini-series "The Bible" which is breaking viewer records right and left. Who do you think those viewers are? A&E has a reality show called Duck Dynasty about a family that puts it´s faith in God before everything else - also breaking records. Look at the popularity of Dr. Ben Carson. Do you see a trend here? Like I said, what have you got to lose?

As an example of how well a third party would work for conservatives, let me cite the Constitution Party (www.constitutionparty.com, for those of you who care to check). It´s more conservative than the Tea Party, which has fragmented into several competing groups. The Constitution Party has been around since 1992, and its first presidential candidate, Howard Phillips, said that year that "the Republican Party is going the way of the Whigs." Well, the Republican Party is still here, and the Constitution Party has never in its 21 years of existence won a single election, anywhere, any time. Their presidential candidate in 2012, Virgil Goode, got a whopping 122,334 votes.

And you also have the Tea Party Express, Tea Party Communities, Tea Party Nation, and Tea Party Patriots, all claiming to be the real authentic Tea Party.

So in actuality, we have at least four third parties already carrying the pure conservative banner.

Conservatives have fought for control of the GOP for more than 60 years. The result has been sporadic periods of limited success. The RINOs are entrenched, well-funded, and not about to relinquish control. They are proficient at teasing conservatives like Lucy could tease Charlie Brown with that football.

A split will be messy, and will probably cost a few elections until the re-alignment is complete. Don´t forget "Reagan" Democrats who will also come across, drawing from that party as well. It will be politically risky. However, doing what we have been doing over and over and expecting a different result is .. well, you know what Einstein said.

The only reason it has come to this is because the entrenched Republican Establishment has decided that it will either remain in power as the king makers or take the party down with them.

Its never been about "purity". Its been about limited government. The one thing almost all conservatives agree upon. The current Establishment is engorging itself on taxpayer money and special interest perks and will not endanger their place at the taxpayer buffet. That is the core reason why the party is collapsing. The jig is up. They have ran out of excuses. No one believes the Republican leadership anymore.

People can rant and rave about gay marriage and abortion. They, whether you like it or not, are side issues, nothing more. Government should not be involved in one the other is a muddled mess of beliefs, realities, and half truths.

If the Republican Establishment truly wanted to save the party it could, but they don´t. They truly just want to remain in power, no matter what the cost.

Its on their heads the blame should fall when, not if, the Republican party disintegrates.

End the madness. If one Republican party can´t win, two will be totally ineffectual for the next decade.

Republicans are good; Democrats are bad... forever. That´s all you need to remember. Stop the ankle biting; don´´t cater to shallow persons who would modify their views for transient advantage. They are out there. Remember the Reagan Doctrine. Do not take counsel who don´t know it or don´t practice it. Our national survival is a stake.

Why not simplify: The statists in the GOP leadership could be honest and, in the name of transparency, jump on over to the dem party and the majority base of the GOP could then save the Republican party with responsible & accountable candidates who respect he will of the people and don´t connive in secret plottings?

.....After all, the dem pols are proud to be statist lefty/libs and the GOP has always represented Constitutional principles, referred to here in 2013 as, ´´conservative,´´ views.

Character still counts, right along with the U.S. Constitution & Bill of Rights.

Like it or not, the "real conservatives" and the "Rinos" need to stick together to win and even then, they may not, due to the cheating abilities of the Dems. There are not enough tea party voters to do it alone and not enough establishment voters to do it alone. Both sides need to get over their petty, name-calling, so´s-your-mama silliness and find some common ground.

It´s so much easier to have Mark Levin´s or Rush´s job than to actually get elected to an office and then try to get a majority to agree with you and vote on something conservative.

AP President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

Sucking carbon dioxide out of the air might be used as a last-ditch attempt to stop global warming, UN scientists say. The technology is proposed as a ‘Plan B’ if Governments fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 70 per cent before 2050. Reducing greenhouse gases to manageable levels will cost up to four per cent of global GDP by 2030, according to a draft version of a report to be published in Berlin on Sunday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). That would involve Britain and other nations increasing spending ten-fold on wind farms and other green

In late March, the Chicago Board of Education announced an ambitious plan to implement its “turnaround” model for three low-performing elementary schools in poor, predominantly black neighborhoods. The turnaround process involves the sacking of every teacher and staffer at each of the schools, according to an email from the Chicago Teachers Union obtained by The Daily Caller. Naturally, the union bosses aren’t happy that the nation’s third-largest school district is employing such sweeping measures to improve some of its worst schools. Still reeling from the closure of 50 schools in 2013, embattled Chicago Teachers Union Karen Lewis called the turnaround plan “a slap

Conservatives frustrated with the direction of the country think Dr. Ben Carson can change the course by winning the 2016 presidential race. Now they just have to convince him. The group, RunBenRun.org, a super PAC, has already raised $4 million toward a Carson bid for the Republican nomination and has collected 200,000 signatures for a petition to get him to join the race. John Philip Sousa IV, the group’s national chairman, said Tuesday that members are working Carson on an almost daily basis, sending along petition-drive updates and hundreds of “clamorings” for him to run, received through letters, Facebook postings and other forms

A tragic phenomenon has affected President Obama since he became President. The more radical his audience, the more outrageous his lies. At his appearance before Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, Obama called voter fraud claims “bogus” and said his Justice Department has “taken on more than 100 voting rights cases since 2009. ” This is a bald faced lie. One need merely click this link from the Justice Department’s own website to see it is a lie. The truth is that 39 cases have been brought, not 100 – and only 13 relate to protecting minority voting rights – usually foreign

The government is putting its (big) foot down. No more junk food in schools. As Danica Lo of Epicurious writes: New rules for school food kick in this July -- and for kids going back to school in the fall, it´s sad sad news (okay, not really sad, but healthy healthy news). According to new regulations being instituted by the USDA, junk food is now totally verboten -- in school vending machines, stores, and lunchrooms. That means that fruits, veggies, whole grains, and dairy are good to go -- high-sodium, high-sugar, and high-fat foods are not. Rules, as we all know, exist

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd. But

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been
