On Monday’s Mark Levin Show, the individual mandate portion of the Obamacare law (Affordable Care Act) was removed by a vote in Congress at the behest of the President of The United States. Six justices are likely to uphold it for the sake of severability and with the individual mandate severed from the ACA, the law is likely to stand. The Democrats know this yet they turned today’s hearing into a theatrical campaign commercial. Joe Biden is going to pack the Supreme Court and Congressional Democrats are subsequently intent on destroying it. Then, Anthony Fauci claims he’s being taken out of context in the latest Trump campaign ad when he says that Trump’s coordinated response was “impressive” and that the President has always “followed the science.” Fauci was unequivocal in his statement to Mark Levin on “Life Liberty and Levin” during the height of the pandemic. Later, RINO’s and other radical leftists like AOC and renowned communist Angela Davis are excited about a Biden Presidency and have signed on to endorse Biden. Afterward, Sen. Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee joins the show to discuss today’s hearing to confirm federal judge Amy Coney Barrett to the US Supreme Court. Graham also discussed using federal grants to get states to take control of their own healthcare. Graham stresses the importance of re-electing Trump in November. Finally, Congressional candidate Matt Rosendale calls in with an update on his campaign and why Democrats and Nancy Pelosi must be defeated.

Rough transcript of Hour 1

Hour 1 Segment 1

America. Let me tell you why you despise so much that goes on in Washington, D.C. Let me tell you why you despise politicians generally and liberals in particular. You had an entire hearing today on the Democrats side on nothing. Let’s talk about Obamacare. The individual mandate was voted out of Obamacare a couple of years back. And that was the part. That was the part that was constitutionally sketch. In other words, unconstitutional. It was removed by Congress at the behest of the present United States. It’s not there anymore. So the administration is trying to strike, choose me, strikeout the rest of Obamacare. And unfortunately, from my perspective, it’s unlikely to succeed. We have six justices already that have indicated. They’re likely to uphold the rest of it. Now why? Because they like it. Because they believe in the policy, because they think it’s such a wonderful law. No. Because there is a judicial term called severability. Judges, particularly Supreme Court justices, if they can uphold a law, the law, uphold it if they feel it’s constitutional. With the individual mandate now gone. That’s been severed. From the rest of the law. So the rest of the law is likely to stand and six justices have inferred at least that that’s their intention. Now, the Democrats know this. The media know this, but they don’t care. They don’t care. And so. Half the day you’re subjected to were subjected to photos of people who, if they lose their health care, they’re going to die or go broke or what have you. Now, these are very sad stories that have absolutely nothing to do with this hearing and absolutely nothing to do with this case. Zero. And so they turned. A hearing. With the nomination of a Supreme Court justice. Into a Democrat Party commercial. Intending to pull at the heartstrings of senior citizens and women. Look what Trump is going to do to you. Look what Trump. Trump’s not going to do anything to you. Even though this is aimed at suburban women, in particular tech seniors. So unfortunately, Obamacare is likely to stand. It’s likely to stand. All those photos, all the drama, all the theatrical and outrageous, contemptible act by the Democrats who think everybody’s stupid. Who think everybody’s stupid. And this is entirely intended to help Joe Biden. That’s what they did to the oversight hearing today on whether or not to confirm. Judge Barrett, to the Supreme Court of the United States. Another mockery. Another complete mockery. Obamacare. Obamacare sucks. For those who are required to use it, it stinks. The premiums are through the roof. The deductibles are through the roof. Some states you have no choices whatsoever. Other chases states maybe, too. But the fact of the matter is, the coverage is quite poor. But Mark, what about pre-existing conditions? First of all, again, this law is very unlikely to be struck down on the legal theory that I mentioned and the fact that there’ve been inferences made by at least six justices who are currently on the court. But I don’t know of a single Republican senator or for that matter, a single Democrat senator. Who has said they don’t support mandating pre-existing conditions. So they would pass a law compelling insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions. That’s it. Nobody is going to fall through any hole. Moreover, states already do that for the most part. Remember, most of these insurance companies are regulated by the federal government. They are regulated by the states. And in virtually every instance, they’re required to cover pre-existing conditions. So another straw man, another phony issue. Pre-existing conditions won’t be covered. And then finally, Judge Barrett, we have no idea how Judge Barrett would rule. When it comes to the Obamacare case, we’re not supposed to. So the Democrats just view this as a polar pure that they want to control. And the irony throughout all this. They complain about the process. Is that the very senators sitting there and pontificating? Starting with Kamala Harris. Have every intention of destroying the Supreme Court by packing it so all the niceties of the Constitution, all the niceties of the issue of Obamacare and preexisting can do, they intend to destroy? The Supreme Court. And we should stop asking Biden whether he’s going to do it. And we ought to tell the American people he’s going to do it. He is going to destroy the Supreme Court. The is sitting there on the Judiciary Committee have every intention of destroying the Supreme Court. So when they sit there. And want to know about Bharat and. Want to know about the court and want to know what? None of it matters to them in the end. Because their plan is to add six more justices, and I hear that’s the plan to make it 15. Just like FDR wanted to, but was blocked by his home party. Then Barrett is of no consequence. Then Clarence Thomas is of no consequence. Let Sam Alito’s have no consequence in the rest of them are not of no consequence. Because they’re going to pack the court. So when you watch these court gestures up there with big posters of individuals who presumably won’t get the magnificent Obamacare coverage. Here’s my problem in part. The Republicans are utterly unprepared, Mr. Producer. They’re ready to debate the technicalities of this section or that section of the Constitution, which is perfectly fine. But the Democrats are playing on a political level. They’re trying to win this election and they’re using this nomination politically. So it’s OK to argue the Constitution, but you must pushback. How about some photographs? A veterans who died over 300,000 of them. When Obama and Biden. We’re running the federal government, Obamacare and Obamacare. They died. And they had V.A. coverage. Veterans Administration, which is even more comprehensive than Obamacare. They died. They have got to learn how to pushback. They have got to learn how to play the Democrats game. I know it’s unseemly. I know it’s frustrating. But this isn’t a serious hearing for the Democrats, it’s exploitive. And so they played to the media. They played to the cameras. Obamacare. And next, Roe v. Wade, they say. And then they lie. We have six conservative justices, ladies and gentlemen. John Roberts is not going to vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. Period. Period. That’s five justices. And I doubt that Gore message would agree to that. And I doubt that Cavanaugh would agree with that. So those of you who favor slaughtering human babies, you’re safe. It’s okay. It’s a choice. Don’t worry about. And so this is a lie and Roe v. Wade is a disgrace. It’s a pathetic opinion. It’s incoherent. Everybody agrees. But there is another policy objective. If Congress and the American people so overwhelmingly want abortion on a demand, on demand and paid for by the American people, then why don’t they amend the Constitution? The answer is the American people don’t. That’s the answer. But for you, left this out there. Roe v. Wade will not be overturned. So you should be very excited with your death cult. Very, very excited. So that’s the second lie. And we even have one senator. Chris Coons, he’s on TV all the time, is considered, you know, this is a rational guy. This Chris. Oh, yeah. He’s a rational guy. We got to bring him on TV to show that, you know, that we’re gonna have Democrats on that. You know what he claims today? Well, let’s get cut 16, Mr. Producer, cut 16. Go. Judge, I’m I’m deeply concerned about ways in which your approach to something that may sound abstract to folks watching starry decisions or precedent. That means your approach to reviewing and reconsidering and possibly overturning long settled cases may limit. Let me stop you right there. Was Dred Scott a settled case? Dred Scott. You remember Dred Scott, right? Chief justice of the United States, Taney wrote the opinion. Holding that slaves are not people. That was a settled case. How about Plessy vs. Ferguson? Separate but equal as equal. That was a settled case. How about Korematsu? When FDR rounded up Japanese Americans and Americans of Japanese descent, that was okay. I’d go through a whole bunch of cases where we really don’t want the precedent and cases should be overturned. Right, ladies and gentlemen? You’re damn right. Anyway, let’s go to this low IQ, Senator. Go ahead. Some of the very principles for which Justice Ginsburg fought her entire adult life. Principles that protect settled fundamental rights for all Americans. What might this mean? Cases like Griswold vs. Connecticut that established married couples have a right to obtain and use contraception in the privacy. All right. All right. So another way you see the fear mongering in the scared tech is how many you’re going to fall for this. That Justice Barrett would vote. To allow states to outlaw contraceptives, how many of you are going to buy this? How many of you are going to believe this? It’s so outrageous. So appalling. She said nothing of the sort. You should be disgusted with these Democrat. More when I return, I’ll be right back.

Hour 1 Segment 2

So the Democrats want to pack the court. Now, what does that mean to your liberties and rights? I want to talk about rights. Let’s talk about real liberties and rights like the Bill of Rights. It means the freedom of religion will be destroyed. It means the freedom of assembly. We’ll be destroyed if you don’t assemble with the right people. It means your right to bear arms and protect yourselves under the Second Amendment. What be destroyed? It means due process in many instances. We’ll be destroyed. It means equal protection in many instances will be destroyed. It means the taking clause where the federal government is supposed to reimburse you when they take your home as an example will be eliminated. It means for certain crimes there’ll be strict liability crimes without probable cause eliminated. It means the Ninth Amendment, which they already ignore, will be eliminated. The 9th Amendment represents your unalienable rights as expressed in the Declaration of Independence. It means the 10th Amendment and federalism will be eliminated unless they think it can help undermine further your individual liberties and the constitution. Likewise, sanctuary cities. It means they will destroy the Constitution’s Electoral College clause. It means they will destroy the whole notion of a by camera Congress by forever changing the United States Senate as an appendage of the Democrat Party. Let’s talk about your liberties and your rights. It means the private sector will be the plaything of a centralized, big government iron fisted left. You’ll have government run health care, whether you like it or not. They’re going to eliminate charter schools and all opportunities to send your children to alternatives to government schools. They’ve all but said it. They will give illegal aliens the same rights as citizens and in some of their cities, they even have a right to vote. You can see that expanding. Mark, what are you saying? I’m saying exactly what they intend. Illegal aliens, they’ve already said, should get health care. Well, there goes Medicare debt because when people don’t pay into a program and they get 100 percent of the benefits, no program can sustain that. Medicare will be dead. Social Security will be dead. And what else? Our constitutional system of checks and balances will not exist any longer. What will happen to your children and your grandchildren under those circumstances? You saw what took place in the streets. The law of the streets took place over the summer riding and demands. White privilege, systemic racism. These will be enshrined in our law and enshrined to what’s left of our Constitution. Meaning individuals alone will not be judged by their own character. Individuals will not be judged based on their merit. Individuals will not be judged based on what’s between their ears and in their hearts and in their souls. What’s between their legs and the color of their skin? As the nation tribal ISIS balking ISIS. That’s what your children and your grandchildren have to look forward to. This is the Democrat Party. This is what they want to do to America. They can hold up all the posters they want. But make no mistake about it. Their target is the Constitution. It stands in their way. And they want to devour the Supreme Court, devour the Senate, devour the electorate. And then it’s over. Over for all time. I’ll be right back.

Hour 1 Segment 3

Man Joe Morgan died today. Great second baseman, maybe one of the greatest. The Cincinnati Reds, you know, last month, Tom Seaver died last week. Bob Gibson die today. Joe Morgan died. You know, my childhood are not childhood, but my teen years at least. These were my sports icons. It’s really sad to see this. And three of the greatest ever. Just tremendous. Perhaps you’ve been watching the last 24, 48 hours where the Trump campaign ran an ad. Which features in part Dr. Fauci. Praising the administration. Now we’re going to get into this center was my show and my interview and the one on interview Dr. Fauci at the old executive office building where he made these comments. And I’ll tell you what’s shocking. Heights. They’ve been playing this allover Fox, and not once have they mentioned it was on life, Liberty and Levin. Can somebody explain that to me? They’ve been playing it all over cable TV, other networks, and not once did they mention it was my interview. In the newspapers, they almost don’t mention it was my interview. This is how much. Well, I better not say. But it was a serious interview. Like all of my interviews, a serious interviews. Watching my friends on Fox and Friends this morning never said a word. I don’t know why. I, you know, it’s bizarre. Because I’m the one who can dig into this. I’m the one who can explain what he said to me face to face. I’m the one who raised them and we’re going to get into this. Because Dr. Fowler, she is deceiving the American people. Donald Trump is the head of the Trump administration. Donald Trump chose the task force. Donald Trump appointed the vice president. All the final decisions are made by Donald Trump. Mr. Foust Dr. Fauci said to me that Donald Trump each and every time he would raise an issue with them about science, even if Trump disagreed, he would go along with Fauci. He praised the president. And now you are fools at the Washington compost, fools at the New York Slimes, fools at CNN and MSNBC and elsewhere trying to pretend he didn’t. Why are they trying to pretend he didn’t? Other than the fact that they had this narrative that the president, United States screwed up on the virus? This is the Democrat Party narrative. They spent tens of millions of dollars pushing this. And yet. Fauci praised the president, praised the administration, praised the taskforce, all of them. And now he’s reversing course, he’s spinning and I would argue lying. And I was there face to face with Dr. Fowler. This is the Trump ad. And again, it is bizarre to me. I interviewed for an hour, a half an hour Fauci and a half hour, the vice president, United States as head of the task force. So we really dug into the Corona virus. And Dr. Fauci said that I was very forthcoming. And so I would encourage cable TV and network TV. The next time you use my interview. Have a chi run or at least say it. Here’s the ad cut one go. President Trump is recovering from the Corona virus and so is America. Together, we rose to meet the challenge. Protecting our seniors, getting them lifesaving drugs in record time, sparing no expense. President Trump tackled the virus head on as leaders should. I can’t imagine that anybody could do it. We’ll get through this together. Not a. I’m Donald J. Trump and I approve this message. A perfect commercial. I’ve been wondering and waiting, when are they going to run something like this? Well, of course, Dr. Fowler, he’s been in Washington longer than Biden halfa century. His liberal friends in the media don’t like this. Hillary Clinton, who he wrote love letters to, clearly doesn’t like this. The Democrat Party. How dare you use the foolish? You can’t use the pouch. Why not? So let’s cut into some of this. This was March 22nd on Life, Liberty and Levin, March 22nd. Cut 4, a 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 thought as well they’d been impressive. Wow. The coordinated response has been impressive. Which administration is this is it that the Obama Biden administration, no. It’s the Trump Pence administration. Go ahead. One of them. I mean, we’re talking about all hands on deck. Is that I. 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. Hughes may ask where you. You’re down at the White House almost every day is your office at the White House. Now to dine at the White House almost every day working with the task force. In the Trump administration. Imagine that. Go ahead, boss. 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. There’s a whole group, I think we call it the task force that the president appointed and the vice president is in charge of. Imagine that. Any similar thing with Obama by now? Of course, that. Go ahead. Every single day, so I can’t imagine that that under any circumstances that anybody could be doing more. Oh, he can’t imagine anybody could be doing more. The team, right? The administration right. Of course, that’s what he was talking about. Not himself. Go ahead. Obviously, we’re fighting a formidable enemy, this virus, this virus is it is a serious issue here. Take a look at what it’s done to China, to Europe, to South Korea. I mean, it’s serious and our response is aim. Then I know you’ve heard that many, many times. And this is true. I mean, I deal with viruses. My entire career, when you have an outbreak virus, if you leave it to its own devices, it will pickup and then come back down. Well, we learned from China that letting it pick up is really bad because it can do some serious damage. So we have focused now like a laser on doing whatever we can. And there are two or three things that deserve mention to make this peak actually be a mound, which means you’re going to have suffering, you’re going to have illness, you can have death, but it’s not going to be the maximum that the virus can do. Couple of ways to do that. Wait a minute. So it’s not going to be the maximum because. What the team. A task force. The Trump Pence administration are doing. Imagine that my head burst was, as we say, all the time. The very timely decision on the part of the president to shut off travel from China. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. The very timely decision by the president of China was from China, which Biden opposed. He posed for like two months. Wow. So Biden had been president, potentially a million or two people would have died in this country. You just heard Fauci did you, Mr. Producer, did you America? And by the way, Fauci posted. Go ahead. We saw that there was this possibility of people coming in and seeding in the country. We did it early. And as it turned out, there were relatively few cases in the big picture of things that came in from China. Unfortunately for our colleagues and many of whom were my friends and people that I’ve trained actually in medicine in European countries, they didn’t do that and they got hit really hard and are being hit really hard. The first thing. Second thing, when the infection burden shifted from China to Europe, we did the same thing with Europe. We shut off travel for any saying this save lives. The president. Shut off travel, the infectious disease director does not have the power to do that. The president shut off China. The President shut off Europe. Wow. What Joe Biden have done? No, he would not have done that. Now, this has found she. Go ahead. Which again, was another safeguard to prevent influx from without in the other way you do it is by containment and mitigation. And now everybody knows what the word mitigation means because it’s the things that we’re doing. No crowds work from home. Don’t go to places that you can be susceptible. 10 people in a room, not 50 and 100people. Stay away from theaters. Take the elderly people who are susceptible and have them do self isolation. Stay at a bar, stay at a restaurants. If you’re in an area where there’s a lot of coronavirus activity closed, the bars close the restaurant. That’s heavy duty litigation. So I think with all of those things going on at the same time, I believe we will. We’re already doing it. But you just can’t notice it yet because you have the dynamics of the virus going up. We’re trying to put it down. You’re not really sure quantitatively what you’re doing, but you can be actually certain that we’re having an impact on it. This sounds like a man. I was very proud of what they’ve been doing, that they’re on top of the issue. Who do they all work for? They work for the president, the United States, president, United States can be proud of what his team has done. And his decisions. And so the ad is misleading. It’s had a context. Here’s the whole context, Mr. Producer. Here’s the whole context, America. He’s beating his chest, he’s so excited about what the administration has been doing. Go ahead. Now, there’s another part here, I hope we captured it somewhere in these clips where I asked him if the president follows the science. He said yes. President follows the science. Let’s see if we can find a we’ll be right back.

Hour 1 Segment 4

More Doctor Parsky from my interview, a March 22nd cut, five go. You’re impressed. Every day, 20 hours a day of what’s taking place. How about the private sector impressed for their reaction? Well, I’m impressed with the fact that when the president called the private sector into the cabinet room and into the Roosevelt room and said, we need to step up. Oh, you hear that? See, I’m doing the whole thing in context. I was taken out of context, point after point after point after point. You can see Trump leadership, the leadership of the Trump administration. It’s stronger when you hear the whole thing than when you just hear the one sentence. Go ahead out is to have a lot more bandwidth if you want to call it that. I mean, particularly with the idea of when we were stalling early on a bit with the testing. They said, OK, we need high throughput testing. We need the companies that make it to give to get it out there and can implement that. And to their credit, the company stepped to the plate. So that’s the reason why we are seeing and we’ll be seeing quite soon a major escalation in the ability to be doing testing. There is this statement putout some in the press, some of the opposition party, the president that the president doesn’t follow, the science president following the science every single time that I am and I say every day, it’s like almost every day. It’s not like a once a month we’re in in the task force meeting. There are several of us, myself included. I’m not the only one that’s a scientist or a public health person. There are other people who have other responsibilities. So we get a good sampling of expertise that you need. And it’s led by the vice president. Secretary Azar is there as the secretary of HHS. And we talk about every aspect. And we we make all of our decisions and recommendations that are based on the science. I have never in that room listen had a situation where I said scientifically, this is the right thing to do it. And they said, don’t do it. Or scientifically, this is the wrong thing to do. And they did it anyway. Then we get up and we present it to the president and he asks a lot of questions. That’s his nature. He’s constantly asking the question. And I never in the multiple times that I’ve done that, I said it for scientific reasons. We really should do this, that he hasn’t said let’s do it or when he’s decided not decided when he suggests why do we do this? And I say, no, that’s really not a good idea from a scientific standpoint. He has never overruled. All right. So let’s let’s regroup. He says the entire response has been impressive. He doesn’t think anybody could be doing more. He lauds the decision on China and the subsequent decision on Europe. And he talks almost braggadocio about the social controls that they’ve put in place. He’s impressed by the president meeting with the private sector and telling them to step it up. And he says each and every time, each and every time we raise the science with the president, the president has agreed with us. Ladies and gentlemen. The media have been lying for the last 24 to 48 hours. Obviously, Dr. Fowler, she has reversed course and unfortunately now he’s trying to undermine the president, the United States. The fact of the matter is, I did this interview. It’s on video. The commercial only takes one sentence. If you had all the sentences that failed, she used to would even be more impressive. The fact is that fact she is praising the president, praising the Trump administration, praising the task force. I’ll be right back.
