To read the book reviews in The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post or The Boston Globe, you might be unaware of the existence of the work of Mark Levin. Unless you skip to the page with the bestseller lists. Levin’s new book “The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic,” last week hit No. 1 on all three New York Times bestseller lists for which it qualified — hardcover nonfiction, e-book nonfiction and the combination of the two. Yet the paper, like the others mentioned and their counterparts on the magazine rack, continues to ignore Levin,
Same reason they ignored over a million people attending the Tea party rally in Washington saying there were only 10´s of thousands there. They covered up massive voter fraud by the democrats this last election. I suspect there will be even more in 2014.
They do not want us to know how successful his and our ideas are.
Agree, no one, not even the GOP, paying slightest attention to massive vote fraud in 2013 (buses filled with ´early voters´, Somalis, and Acorn rent-a-mobs), why would we ever expect anyone to pay attention to Mr. Levin? Let alone a Communistic media?
It is real simple because the only way that liberals can maintain their belief system is by not listening to any views which do not reflect it. I just had someone unfriend me on Facebook because I posted an article telling women that they can reduce their risk of being raped by learning to understand how men think, that if a woman acts in a way that men interpret to mean that she wants to have sex with him, many men are less likely to believe it when she says "No." He made it clear that he considers it wrong for a man to continue when the woman says "No," but not all men think the same way he does.
I once tried to have a discussion with a pro-abort friend where I tried to explain to her that the "choice" she valued more than anything else is, in fact, the choice to kill a baby. This grown woman actually put her hands over her ears, shook her head back and forth and screamed, "don´t say that," over and over. I asked her why I should not say that and she replied that thinking so might change her mind. That is the NY Times. That, my friends, is the left.
Liberals consider any ideas which do not help them to feel good and smart are ´hate speech´.
Your observation can be polite, well reasoned and spoken gently and softly but if it leads the liberal listener into the dilemma of having to either refute the idea or feel foolish when they can´t....then you have attacked them and their vicious and hateful ad hom response is to be expected.
Many liberals, IMHO, simply can´t face the notion that the world is inherently competitive and no amount of pretending is going to change that.
Levin is giving conservatives the much needed leadership to restore the constitution which provides the basis for prosperity. Conservatives are self reliant and so they are not invested in government as liberals who depend on government rather than themselves and so pay much more attention to it and control it. Liberals hate the constitution and shred it because they need big government while the constitution is written to limit the size and power of government. Government is like a cancer growing and metastasizing and finally killing the host. We are at a critical stage in this process and Levin´s efforts are coming late in the game. I for one hope he succeeds for the sake of everyone including many who do not welcome his voice.
The question about Levin´s book is answered in the article:
It’s thoroughly reasoned and ably backed up with quotations ..."
"Some of his ideas might command bipartisan support ..."
They may talk about Mark Levin - perhaps even mention his book - but, they won´t discuss the content in a serious and ´thoroughly reasoned´ manner. Mark Levin´s book is designed to defeat everything they have helped so diligently to achieve over a goodly portion of the past century.
Just as always, they will rely on their bright shiny objects of distraction, and co-ordinated talking points, as the need arises to protect the leftist agenda.
Fox News began as a conservative and patriotic leaning cable news service [remember the flag in the upper right hand corner of the screen]? For reasons that are debatable, they have slowly morphed into the "fair and balanced" fantasy world in which all manner of leftist idiots like fat Beckel and the repugnant Alan Colmes are allowed to spew their claptrap talking points with no regard to logic. On the plus side, however, they still have the good sense to keep their leggy blondes on the ends of the debate tables where their hiked-up over the knee dresses are on prominent display.
It is because 95 plus per cent have been educated and indoctrinated by American Hating educators and are continually paid by American Hating employers. The vast majority believe that if they can turn the whole country into a socialist(communist) nation they will all turn into great leaders. They keep forgetting that with each communist takeover, such traitors to the People are the first ones killed.
Last week, I saw on the internet (I think on the Blaze, but I´m not sure) video of the crowd at Levin´s book signing at the book store Book Revue in Huntington, New York. The line wound all around this large store, outside, down the street for at least a block, and around the corner. Similar to a crowd in New Jersey recently, everyone was patiently waiting and in good humor.
But the MSM ignores Mark Levin´s books, because they want to ignore the people who read them.
For a few hours, it looked like Americans would quietly accept the suspension of popular “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson for his unfiltered opinions about sin, sex, gays and blacks in a magazine interview. But then, as if on cue, hundreds of thousands of fans of the openly Christian, duck-hunting businessman took to social networks and started their backlash. As of Thursday night, more than 1.1 million people “liked” the “Stand With Phil Robertson” Facebook page, while about the same number had clicked their support for another Facebook page called “Boycott A&E Until Phil Robertson Is Put Back On Duck
With polls showing a precipitous decline in President Obama’s honesty ratings, and two influential barometers of trust giving him “pants on fire” and “Pinocchio” awards for his ObamaCare comments, some analysts question if the president’s effectiveness can be resurrected. A Fox News poll conducted December 14-16 asked respondents "Is Barack Obama honest and trustworthy? Some 45% said yes and 49% said no. In April of 2009, when voters were asked the same question, 73% said yes and only 22% said no. What poll numbers convey in precision, two other trust indicators -- Politifact and the Washington Post´s Fact-Checker column --
WENATCHEE, Wash.- By the end of a recent weekend, the big achievement among Ramon Rivera´s high school mariachi band wasn´t that they had logged more than 700 miles in a bus packed with musical instruments or that they had played two shows in front of large audiences. It was that eight of them, all sons and daughters of Latino farmworkers from the agricultural city of Wenatchee, had been accepted into Washington State University - the first in their families to gain admission to college. "They could be the next lawyers, senators, doctors, and the next president of the United States,"
Now that it´s been firmly established that nothing Barack Obama says has one iota of credibility, the newest addition to the "Shove ObamaCare down America´s Throat" Brigade is Mama Michelle Obama. Since she´s a mother and all, the White House has decided that she´d be a better person to promote the ACA hooey than Barack, who thus far has proven to be less than straightforward. Michelle Obama, who, Jay Carney pointed out, is both a mom and "a great messenger," is the same woman who once encouraged mothers across America to breastfeed their babies. Now, on behalf of her husband,
President Barack Obama said the Duck Dynasty family seems like a "pretty fun bunch" in an interview for People magazine that hits newsstands Friday. “The Duck Dynasty family seems like a pretty fun bunch, so I can see how that would be pretty fun," Obama said in remarks that were made before patriarch Phil Robertson got indefinitely suspended Wednesday for what were deemed to be "anti-gay" remarks. Obama, who has been referred to as the "first gay president" by figures like Andrew Sullivan and MSNBC´s Thomas Roberts for his embrace of gay marriage, was responding to a question about whether
Poor guy. Barack Obama gets to jet around on Air Force One, golfs every once in a while (/sarc), and has all the trappings and perks of the highest office in the land. But according to a headline in Monday´s Washington Post, he is the one person in the whole USA above everyone else — not those who have lost health insurance plans with which they were happy, not those who are paying outrageious amounts for far skimpier coverage than they formerly had, not the millions of potential workers so discouraged that they are no longer looking for work or
The night after A&E decided to suspend Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson over comments he made in an interview about homosexual sex, the Robertson family posted a statement to its website about the future of the show. Read the full statement below: We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered
After a rough fall spent trying to recover from the botched rollout of healthcare.gov, President Obama is no doubt looking forward to his annual year-end holiday escape to Hawaii. The Senate on Thursday approved the first budget deal in years that didn´t threaten to keep lawmakers working into Christmas week, leaving Obama, his family and a coterie of close friends free to depart for a 17-day trip to Hawaii as scheduled Friday evening. The vacation will cost taxpayers an estimated $4 million and fill the sleepy town of Kailua and its miles of beautiful beaches with street barricades and security
[Video] A Facebook page dedicated to defense of Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” has received well over 400,000 likes since it was launched just 14 hours ago. The page was created late on Wednesday evening, after news broke that A&E was suspending Robertson over his comments on homosexuality. Within 10 minutes, the “Boycott A&E Until Phil Robertson Is Put Back on Duck Dynasty” page had 100 likes; in 30 minutes, the page had 1,200 likes. It grew exponentially from there; in three and a half hours, the page had 162,000 likes. The page states: “This page is to show support
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has released a statement in response to A&E´s decision to indefinitely suspend Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson for religious comments he made about homosexuality in GQ Magazine. The Robertson family lives in Monroe, Louisiana. “Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV," Jindal said. In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive.
Three people, including a 74-year-old man, were shot to death within three hours on the South and Southwest sides in Chicago overnight, according to authorities. Adding to the toll are two teens who died Wednesday after being shot earlier in the week. The 74-year-old man was found dead inside a car around 4:45 a.m. today. He suffered several gunshot wounds and died at the scene in the 7000 block of South East End Avenue, police said. Not long afterward, another man, 41, was found dead in a car about three blocks north, in the 6700 block of South East End
Is this man simply expressing his beliefs or spewing bigotry?Either way, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E´s "Duck Dynasty," won´t be duck calling on air anytime soon. The network suspended him after slamming gays in a magazine interview. In the January issue of GQ, Robertson said homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity. "It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man´s anus. That´s just me. I´m just thinking: There´s more there! She´s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know
A&E broke its silence on Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson’s anti-gay comments late Wednesday. The cable network announced Robertson is off the hit show for the time being. The network issued the following statement to EW: “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”
The gay and lesbian rights group GLAAD is slamming ´Duck Dynasty´ patriarch Phil Robertson for comments he made about homosexuality to GQ magazine, and challenging the show´s network, A&E, to take action against its most popular star. In a wide-ranging interview, Robertson shared his thoughts on homosexuality and religion. After stating in very graphic terms his preference for heterosexual sex over homosexual sex, Robertson launched into more thoughts about homosexuality and sinning. “Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong... Sin becomes fine,” he said.
Yes, she really said it. On CNN’s Piers Morgan Live Tuesday, in a brief discussion about President Obama, Barbara Walters actually said, “We thought that he was going to be - I shouldn´t say this at Christmastime, but - the next messiah” (video follows with transcript and commentary): PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime. Why is Obama facing so much opposition now? Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?
O ne year removed from re-election, President Obama´s approval rating has sunk to the lowest level of his presidency. Furthermore, Obama´s popularity among the Democratic Party base — whose rejuvenated support proved crucial last November — took a huge hit this past year. Only 54 percent of self-described liberals "very strongly" approve of Obama´s job performance, according to a Pew survey released this week. That´s down from an all-time high of nearly 90 percent, and a significant decline from the 73 percent who strongly approved of the president back in June. Why the steep drop? Well, the first year of Obama´s second term
John Podesta was just named as a new senior-level adviser to President Obama last week, but he´s already ruffling Republican feathers. In a profile published late Tuesday night by Politico Magazine, Podesta is quoted comparing Republicans to the infamous cult led by Jim Jones, who was responsible for the 1978 cyanide poisoning of more than 900 of his followers in Guyana. "They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress," said Podesta of what Obama´s White House team faces.
Hours after we reported that Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson dropped some illogical “logic” on homosexuality during his GQ interview, his home network A&E decided to indefinitely suspend him from the show. While Robertson’s comments were hilariously ignorant, they were predictable — especially given his family’s socially-conservative, Bible-loving image. Suspending the lead character for his wholly predictable comments is not only an overreaction but a gross misstep. To recap: The Duck Commander patriarch remarked to the men’s magazine that homosexuality is on par with bestiality, and used fifth-grade “logic” to imply that homosexual men should give up their ways of choosing a
A&E has placed Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on indefinite hiatus following anti-gay remarks he made in a recent profile in GQ. "We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty," A&E said in a statement. "His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely." The news comes after Robertson compared homosexuality to bestiality in an interview
The Ivy-League educated half-brother of President Obama is publishing his autobiography in which he makes the shocking claim their father dished out alcohol-fueled beatings to him and his mother and in one terrifying instance held a knife to her throat. Mark Obama Ndesandjo, 48, also uses his new book to set the U.S. president straight on inaccuracies he claims exist in his best-selling 1995 memoir Dreams From My Father and confirms they have never seen eye-to-eye because ´Barack thought I was too white and I thought he was too black.´ The self-published book, Cultures: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery, which will be
Valerie Jarrett denied being a “shadow chief of staff” to President Obama on Wednesday, insisting she never talks about work during her private time with the president and first lady. “I´m not the shadow chief of staff. I have very specific responsibilities,” Jarrett, a senior adviser to the president and a longtime family friend of the Obamas, said at a Politico breakfast. [WATCH VIDEO] Jarrett said that “people sometimes presume because I am a friend of the president and first lady” that she´s able to exert influence when the Obamas retire from the office to their residence. “There is this
It’s not unusual for President Obama to tweet out messages in support of his signature health care law, but a photo attached to one online missive is not getting the type of hype the White House had hoped for. The blogosphere and TV pundits are mocking the picture of a young “hipster”-type man in plaid pajamas and black-frame glasses who, while sipping a warm beverage, looks off camera with a slight grin. “Wear pajamas. Drink hot chocolate. Talk about getting health insurance,” the ad says. The photo got prominent play on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” eliciting laughter from its panel. “You are
Phil Robertson´s anti-gay comments aren´t the only part of his interview with GQ causing controversy. The 67-year-old "Duck Dynasty" star was suspended by A&E Wednesday for calling homosexuality sinful — and putting gay people in same category as terrorists. While those quotes quickly went viral, it wasn´t his only brow-raising statement in the interview; he also implied that African Americans were happier living under Jim Crow laws. "I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once," the reality star said of growing up in pre-Civil-Rights-era Louisiana. "Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked
