On Wednesday’s Mark Levin Show, NBC’s latest poll of registered voters, not likely voters, indicates that Joe Biden will defeat Donald Trump in a landslide. Does anyone really believe that? Republicans are outnumbering new voter registrants in key battleground states, yet these polls are indicating that Biden wins by 16 points, something that not even Barack Obama pulled off. Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are taking cheap shots at the President for not agreeing with her blackmail scheme which would include Billions of bail-out dollars unrelated to the coronavirus relief bill. Pelosi wants to reward the cities and states that reward unions for political activity and this would have nothing to do with unemployment or business recovery or bankruptcy. This is a massive redistribution of wealth equivalent to the amount spent on the federal spending budget. Then, Kamala Harris has a stellar record on support for the Green New Deal which would eliminate our economic system as we know it. She supports the de-funding of police despite being a former prosecutor. Based on her voting record, she’d be the most radical politician to ever run for the presidency. Later, Jane Fonda says that COVID-19 is God’s gift to the left. However, Anthony Fauci himself called Trump’s immediate coordinated response to the virus was “impressive” adding that no one could have done more, way back in March at the height of the pandemic. Finally, Congressional candidate Mary Miller calls in with an update from Illinois’ 15th district.

Rough transcript of Hour 1

Hour 1 Segment 1

For those stations smart enough to carry us live. You’ll hear the debate of the potential vice presidential while she is a vice presidential candidate, Kamala Harris and the vice president, Mike Pence. Some comments on that later, plus I want to hear from you about that later. But I have some cleaning up to do around here with the media. The Democrat Party in their one in the same. Well, this poll from NBC. That polls registered voters. This late in the game, nobody polls registered voters. They polled likely voters. Do you want to get accurate? But NBC doesn’t want to be accurate. They say that Biden has a nationwide 14 percentage point lead CNN. Not to be outdone, also polled registered voters, not likely voters. They said, no, no, no, it’s 16 percent. I got to thinking about this. Do any of you believe that Joe Biden will defeat Donald Trump in a massive landslide? That’s what those numbers mean. One of the great modern landslides was Ronald Reagan’s defeating Walter Mondale in 1984. Ronald Reagan won the popular vote, got slightly over 18 percent more votes than Mondale. Do you think Joe Biden would get 14 to 16 percent of the popular vote against Donald Trump? When you look at the Republicans out registering the Democrats in key battleground states, not by a little, but by a lot. Do you believe that? Course not. Ronald Reagan defeated Jimmy Carter in 1980 in what was considered also a landslide by nine point seventy four percent popular vote. You think Joe Biden would do better than that? You’d think he’d get 14 to 16 percent against the president, United States. Dwight Eisenhower beat Adlai Stevenson in1956. In a popular vote slaughter by fifteen point four percent. You think Joe Biden would get fifteen point four percent more popular vote, the Donald Trump 1932 FDR beats Herbert Hoover. By seventeen point seven, six percent. You think you’d think Joe Biden would beat the president of the United States by 14 to 16 percent? You get my point, Mr. Producer. It’s ridiculous. Obama beat McCain by seven point to seven percent of the vote. And so according to NBC and CNN. Biden is on track of beating Donald Trump by twice that much. Twice the percentage. That’s just not in the cards. And so these polls are not to drive your mental state or emotional state. Don’t let them dispirit you, because that’s their purpose. If you’re still polling registered voter as opposed to likely voters. That’s the goal. So I wanted to address that. I want to address something else you’re hearing all day long. The media in this country say Donald Trump made a political mistake. He pulled the plug on discussions. Over a corona virus relief. And Nancy Pelosi goes out there making her. Disgusting comments while her face is melting right before our eyes. That because they may have given some steroids to the president. He’s not having a good mental health day. Why doesn’t Nancy release her medical records and why doesn’t she release her tax records after all, she’s second inline to be president United States. Why? Cause she’s insane. She’s a nasty old lady, Iva. Pelosi. Now. Well, are they talking about this is supposed to be. A relief bill to help certain industries like the airline industry that’s cratering some of the other industries, restaurants, small businesses, people who are unemployed and need help. Those are easy bills to pass. They come to about one point some odd billion dollars really one excuse me, trillion dollars, really one trillion. So the Republicans and the president go all the way up to one point six. But Nancy says, no, no, no, no. She wanted three point two. Listen to this. Then she wanted to point four. Then she wanted to point to where where’s all this money going to go? Trillions and trillions and trillions. And by the way, the states, many of them still have billions. From the prior relief bill’s well, I want to read something to you so we get our facts straight before we jump into other issues here. This is why I hope you listen to the program. Betsy McCauley was the lieutenant governor. Of New York. She’s very solid, very intelligent. And she wrote in The New York Post today, the House speaker has been badgering the GOP to pass her two point two trillion dollar coronavirus relief bill to, quote, crush the virus so that we can reopen the economy and our schools safely, unquote. And of course, she knows and they know that the media will run with their lies and their mischaracterizations. And so it cost to point two trillion dollars, you see. To reopen the economy and help our schools. She’s a liar. She’s always a liar. Instead, though, Pelosi never mentions it. Her bill would rewrite election law for 2020, barring voter ID requirements in all states, forcing all states to count absentee ballots that arrive as late as ten days after Election Day and opposing same day voter registration everywhere. Though currently only 21 states allow it. These changes don’t belong in a relief for a stimulus bill. And that is how they permanently changed California from a truly two party state leaning Republican to a one party dark blue state where the Republicans never have a chance. She took the policies out of her home state of California and put them in this bill. The president said, no, we’re not doing that. How does this have to do with helping people and businesses? There’s almost no disagreement between Republicans and Democrats over sending every American adult twelve hundred dollar check. It’s a small part of the total of the bill. Small part. Pelosi’s version would fritter away hundreds of billions of dollars, closing state and city budget gaps with nothing long term to show for it. We won’t be any more prepared for the next pandemic. The president has said, look, I’ll help cities and states related to the pandemic, but I’m not going to bail out states, pre-K, corona virus, whatever their fiscal situation was, then that’s their problem. It’s not up to the national taxpayer in the middle of a pandemic where we’re trying to help people who suffered as a result of this pandemic to use it to bail out blue cities and blue states. And she’s blackmailing the president and the Republicans and she’s blackmailing everybody out there who needs help. Pelosi is doing now, if we didn’t have a corrupt media in this country, you would be getting the facts. Pelosi’s bill promises school districts two hundred and twenty five billion, but only five billion or 2 percent of that will go to making schools safer for improving air quality or installing sinks and other hygiene upgrades as a result of the virus. Five billion out of two hundred twenty five billion. It is a sop to the teachers union right before the election. That’s what they want. The rest is a teacher’s union protection plan. Astonishingly, school districts that economize and reduce per pupil spending or change labor contracts are automatically ineligible for stimulus funding. So in other words, Pelosi wants to reward. The cities and states that reward the unions. This is in this bill, it’s diabolical. The bill allocates 417 billion dollars to state and local governments with absolutely no strings attached. Having nothing to do with the virus, unemployment or business bankruptcies. And she’s doing that again to enable them to use it any way they want. Can you imagine turning all this money, massive sums of your money? Really the money of the next generation’s. Over to these Democrat mayors. When office buildings and convention centers, railroad terminals and other workplaces are empty. The businesses around them fail, retailers, shoe shines, food trucks, restaurants have no customers in Manhattan and St. Paul, Minneapolis, only about 10 percent of office workers are back on site, worse than anywhere else in the nation. Soto solve that problem, a sizable portion of the stimulus money should go to environmental improvements such as air cleaning systems, anti-microbial coatings on desks, keyboards, subway poles, she writes, and antiviral technologies that improve workplace and transit safety. But that’s not what Pelosi’s bill does. The 600 billion plus allocated the city, states and school districts a staggering amount equivalent to the nation’s entire defense budget. Would be used to plug budget holes. For these school districts and cities. And it would all be gone by the end of the year. It’s a massive redistribution of wealth to the blue states, cities and blue states. That’s what she’s trying to pull off here. The bill allocates one hundred and twenty billion dollars in grants for restaurants. New York City needs this help because half its restaurants are on the brink of closing in the next six months, taking 160000 jobs with them. Unfortunately, the funding is saddled with unfair and possibly unconstitutional preferences from minority and women owned businesses. Everyone needs help. But Pelosi puts in there the priority is for minority and women owned businesses. Did you know any of this? Did you know any of this? This is why the president got fed up. And said you’re not negotiating honestly with integrity. And this president who knows how to negotiate, make a deal, that’s why cut it off. You either get your act together and get your ass in gear or that’s the end of it. And of course, the media turn on him. Look at this. During an election year, Trump is throwing the unemployed and small business over the over the over the edge. The airlines over the edge. This has nothing to do with any of that. If Trump signed off on this bill, this country would be changed forever on elections. On subsidizing states. This is a massive power grab in this bill. The House bill spend some money wisely. Two hundred million for a vaccine awareness campaign, 20 million to upgrade the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s disease early alert system. 500 million for a nursing strike force to respond fast when a nursing home as it would cover 19. But these important items are getting millions of dollars, while the politically cynical provisions get tens of billions. For example, five billion for community development block grants that the bill labels flexible resources. In other words, 5 billion dollars for walking around money for local politicians. That’s what’s in our bill. There is no compromising with this. This is evil. This is diabolical. This is unconscionable. This is immoral. While people are hurting. And then I have to listen to liberals because, you know, we need to be balanced here. They live and the Liberals on cable TV and network TV telling us that it’s Donald Trump. Who’s just politically hurt himself by cutting off Pelosi? They’d like to have their charts and their graphics on TV. How come they don’t have charts and graphics about what the Democrats are demanding in these bills? They never do. Ever. Why? Because these newsrooms agree with the Democrats. And they hate Trump. And so you’re never gonna get. Facts from these newsrooms never. That just took me 10 minutes to read. Betsy McCaughey, his column where she did the research and laid it all out. And by the way, unlike other broadcasters, I give her credit, but she just went through the particulars. Tommy, ladies and gentlemen, should the president, United States continue negotiating with a witch like this? And should have signed a bill like this. No, of course not. I’ll be right back.

Hour 1 Segment 2

Vice presidential debate night. Now, ladies and gentlemen, you need to understand, and most of you do, but your friends and family and co-workers need to understand. The Democrats lie. The media lie. And so this so-called relief bill, a small percentage of the money is actual relief. If the president, the United States to go along with this. He would have been a disaster in so many respects. The Democrats really believe the present United States should have signed off on this, but let me tell you something. They hold the House when the Senate win the presidency. This is exactly what they’re going to do. This is exactly what they’re going to do. They’re going to bail out all the blue states. They’re going to bail out all these blue state cities. They’re going to bail out all the pension funds are going to use debt. And your tax money, you’re going to see a massive transfer of wealth. From the working class in this country, I don’t care what party you are to government, massive because the power of the Democrat Party really isn’t in the people, it’s in government. It’s in the iron fist. You will see a change in our election laws. You will see a rewrite of the election laws barring voter I.D. requirements, forcing states to count absentee ballots that arrive as latest 10days after the election, requiring all states to accept same day voter registration everywhere. And these changes will be permanent and they will make the Democrat Party a permanent majority party. In addition, getting four Democrats to the Senate and then stacking and packing the Supreme Court. So any decisions that go all the way to the Supreme Court, the outcome will be known in advance. And so right here in the bill, you can see their plans, trillions of dollars to bail out the pension funds and the blue states and the blue cities. Trillions will never come up from under in this never again, a massive transfer of wealth from working people, the middle class to the Democrat Party, their governors and their mayors, other.

Hour 1 Segment 3

Which Kamala Harris will show up at the debate tonight. Which one? It’s been set out there. They’re leaking that she’s going to be very compassionate. She’s going to show the American people that she really cares. That’s not very hard to do. But which one will show up? August 16, 2020. Here’s what I said about Kamala Harris. Her record. Cut 16. Go. Let’s take a quick look at her record since she’s been a United States senator. And I want you to think as I go through this list that I made this today, each and every one of these items, how radical it is and how wrenching it would be to our society. She is farther left than ninety seven percent of the Democrats in the United States Senate. She is left of avowed Marxist democratic socialist Bernie Sanders. She is not moderate. She’s not a pragmatist like The New York Times. And the others are trying to tell you she would decriminalize the legal immigration, decriminalize illegal immigration. She rejects a physical wall on the southern border. She compared the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service that men and women in federal law enforcement who once people come here illegally, they commit crimes and other things, they try and get them and deport them. She compared them to the Ku Klux Klan. She believes in government run health care for illegal aliens. Imagine what that will do to health care. She believes in the elimination of private health care. Many of you have private health care. Many of you have private health care through your employer, through your union. That means one hundred and sixty million people would lose their health care. She is a co-sponsor with AOC of the Green New Deal. What is the Green New Deal? To put it simply, it started in Europe. It is a socialist attack on capitalism. It would affect everything from automobiles and homes, heating and air conditioning, the kind of paint you use, everything the federal government regulate, everything. In other words, it’s a war on capitalism. She wants to attack energy independence after all these decades were finally free of foreign countries and blackmail from OPEC and all the rest of it because of American ingenuity and the hard work of the American people. She wants to eventually eliminate in short order coal, oil, natural gas, all fossil fuels and eliminate fracking. She wants to repeal the president’s tax cuts for the middle class. She wants to massively increase taxes on all Americans. She supports infanticide and even more. She believes you, the American taxpayer, regardless of your religion, regardless of your moral views, that you should pay for it. Abortion on demand. Abortion as late as is demanded. She believes the federal government should have to approve any state law that seeks to regulate abortion in any way before a state could actually implement it. She wants to ban what are today legal firearms by executive order in clear violation of the Second Amendment. She wants massive new regulations across the board. She supports Joe Biden’s war on the suburbs. Obama’s war on the suburbs where the Housing and urban development will basically decide all issues for the suburbs, where libraries would be, how many schools there are, whether you can have single family homes and on and on and on. She has said that she supports, if necessary, quote unquote, the packing of the United States Supreme Court. And she believes in eliminating the filibuster now any one of these things would be destructive to our constitutional system, to our economic system, to your liberty and to your community. Any one of these things, does that sound like a pragmatic moderate to you? Ladies and gentlemen, that sounds like the most extremist radical politician ever to run for high office in the United States of America. It is about as clear of an un-American, antique, hapless, anti-individual, anti-constitution agenda as one has ever stated. And that is a fact. I’m back live. What about this virus? Is Kamala Harris made any proposal other than to attack those who’ve been working at it? I want to remind you of what Dr. Fauci said when I interviewed him way back in March about the work. The task force, the vice president who heads the task force, the president, United States. They love this guy. The foul. I want to remind you what he said. Ladies and gentlemen, cut one go high profile. She let me ask you a question. You’ve been doing this a long time. Have you ever seen this big of a coordinated response by an administration to such a threat, health threat? Well, we’ve never had a threat like this. And the coordinated response has been there are a number of adjectives to describe it. Impressive, I think is one of them. I mean, we’re talking about all hands on deck. Is that I as one of many people on a team, I’m not the only person since the beginning that we even recognized what this was. I have been devoting almost full time on this, almost full time. I’m down at the White House virtually every day with the task force. I’m connected by phone throughout the day and into the night. When I say night, I’m talking 12:00, 1:00, 2:00 in the morning. I’m not the only one. There’s a whole group of us that are doing that. It’s every single day. So I can’t imagine that that under any circumstances that anybody could be doing more. I mean, obviously, we’re fighting a formidable enemy. This virus this virus is this is it is a serious issue here. So two takeaways. He says it’s impressive. And I can’t imagine that under any circumstances that anybody could be doing more. In another part of the interview, he also says that every recommendation is given to the present. This is in March. The president has followed. He follows the science. So what’s going on here? Well, Jane Fonda, Hanoi Jane, you may remember her, Hanoi Kamala Harris was campaigning with Hanoi Jane. Kamala Harris, who contributed money and supported the bail for riders, has praised Black Lives Matter, which is an anti-Semitic, Marxist anarchist organization. Well, Jane Fonda on a video call. She kind of let the cat out of the bag. I want you to listen carefully. She’s a big Democrat. Celeb, that big Democrat donor, and they embrace her hat tip. Washington Free Beacon, cut, sex go. We can stop. Fascism. We are at a point where we can. This is a crossroads. It’s an existential crossroads. And we are people who can help determine which way humanity goes. What a great gift. What a tremendous opportunity. We’re just so lucky. We have to use it with every ounce of intelligence and courage and wherewithal we have. Because you’re absolutely right. This is it. This is it. And I know, you know, I just think culvert is God’s gift to the left. Yeah, it just a terrible thing to say. I mean, I think it was a very difficult thing to send down. That’s enough. Surkov in. It’s God’s gift to the left. They believe this. They don’t say it, but she just did. Now let’s look at the Democrat Party record, Dave Seminary, The Wall Street Journal back in April. Donald Trump is not responsible for Covid 19, but he’s responsible for our slow, uncoordinated response. Joe Biden tweeted Friday again April 19th. Experts say that if we’d acted two weeks earlier, more lives could’ve been saved. Trump failed to take swift action and we’re paying the price, quote unquote. The Trump back to too late storyline would be more convincing of Mr Biden. And other Democrats had called for bolder action early in the crisis. But they did. Democratic candidates held five televised debates lasting nearly 11 hours from January 14 through March 15th. They offered no policy proposals that haven’t already been enacted and said little about the virus and the four events in January and February. There was plenty of talk of impeachment, but no mention of the Corona virus at the January 14 debate in Iowa. During the next debate in New Hampshire, Feb. 7, a week after Trump restricted travel from China, Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar mentioned China, but only in the context of climate change. P. Bush said the next president’s going to face challenges from global health security like what we’re seeing coming out of China. But he didn’t frame this as an immediate danger. That’s on February 7th. The virus didn’t come up at all at the February 19 debate in the. Though Mike Bloomberg warned that the Chinese, quote, are going to die just as hard, people are going to die unquote, as a result of carbon emissions, Mr. Budi shares was the first Democratic candidate dimension the Corona virus explicitly on Feb. 25in South Carolina. So it didn’t come up. For multiple debates, his only policy suggestions, so you can call him that. Worth it for the president to, quote, listen to the scientists. Listen to your own intelligence and coordinate with an international community. And this president has alienated because his idea of security strategy is a big wall. CBS is Gayle King later queried the candidates about closing the border to Americans who’ve been exposed to the virus. Ms. Club, a true vaguely asserted that she would better coordinate throughout my presidency to be ready for the next pandemic and to prepare for this one and said she favorite investing in education because I know the vaccine is out there and the head of some kid right now in school. Mr. Biden ramble about Ebola and establishing an office in the White House to handle pandemics and spoke of increasing funding to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health. Mr. Sanders said much the same. Tom Stier briefly mentioned the Corona virus before declaring that the biggest threat to America right now in terms of our safety of our citizens is climate. Mr Bloomberg accused Trump of having defunded the CDC, so we don’t have anybody to respond. In fact, though, Mr Trump three times proposed reducing the CDC budget for emerging and do not act infectious diseases. Each time a Congress raised it instead. But nothing was cut. Only on March 15 in Washington coronavirus become a central focus. March 15th. And Trump had taken many steps by then. CNN let its debate between message Biden and Sanders with a series of questions about the pandemic. Mr. Biden talked about providing assistance and ensuring every state had at least10 drive through test centers before quickly running out of steam like a boxer hoping for a bell. You see, my time is up here, he said, even though no one was cutting him off. And by the way, there weren’t any tests that were available for the drive thru. By then, thanks to him and Obama. Mr Sanders harped on Medicare for all and twice misidentified covered 19 as the Ebola crisis before saying, You’ve got Ebola in my head here, right? You’ve got Ebola here, right in my head. Mr. Biden confused Cove at19 with the swine flu, which he called, and one H1 rather than H1N1. And then forgetting the name Ebola referred to it as what happened in Africa. Jake Tapper asked Mr. Biden if he could call for a national lockdown. Mr. Biden avoided the question. What I would do is what we did in our administration, I would call a meeting in the situation room of all the experts in America dealing with the crisis. I would sit them down and I would do exactly what we did then. What is it that we need? Listen to . You see, ladies and gentlemen, they’re all full of crap. Mr. Tapper asked, well, what consequences China should face for playing down the crisis and suppressing the doctor who called attention to it. Mr. Sanders said it wasn’t the time to be punishing people and pivoted to criticizing President Trump. Mr. Biden again drifted back to Ebola and said, we should insist on having our experts in China and impose unspecified consequences if Beijing refused. At no point during any of these debates. January, February, March did a Democratic candidate suggest that the country should be locked down or taken other social distancing measures sooner. As Arthur Conan Doyle observed, it’s easy to be wise after the event. Too easy to be wise, after the event, they proposed nothing. They were slow off the start. The president was quick off the start. Jane Fonda has it right. They’re now exploiting this. For political purposes. Meanwhile, we have therapeutics that have come out. Meanwhile, we have vaccines right at the precipice. This project warp speed, and I have to ask a question, what have the Democrats done to help? Kamala Harris ever picked up the phone and called the head of the task force, the vice president, United States, and said, Hey, Mike, how can we help? What do you need from Congress? Nothing. I’ll be right back.

Hour 1 Segment 4

You know, when Joe Biden was vice president, he had his chance to show leadership when it comes to a virus, the swine flu. His own chief of staff said it was a disaster. And in fact, it was a disaster. Even Politico said it was a disaster. Now we have a vice president who’s led a task force and has worked very closely with the president, the United States, on operation war, speed and in every respect, ventilators, hospital beds, PPD, therapeutics, vaccines in every respect. You have record breaking progress. And that takes executive background and the vice president has executive background as a governor. Present United States has a private sector background. It takes experience, it takes knowledge, sloganeering is great, showing compassion is great, it doesn’t save a single life. Now, Kamala Harris has not announced. The policies that were put in place in New York and New Jersey, Illinois and California and some of the other states in which coronavirus patients were forced into nursing homes and assisted living homes that didn’t want those patients because of the frail, you know, it’s the patients that they have. And yet over 40 percent of the deaths that occurred occurred as result of decisions like that. So if they’re concerned about over two hundred thousand deaths, how come they haven’t condemned those governors and they haven’t condemn those policies, state policies, Democrat policies, not the policies of the president and the vice president, the task force. On debate night, make sure you come back. I’ll be here.
