On Tuesday’s Mark Levin Show, Americans must choose between liberty and tyranny. The Democrats do not embrace movements for the people, they are for the government. We the People must never accede to the terms of our economic and political surrender and servitude. Americans must never abandon their children and grandchildren to a dark and bleak future. Never accept a fate that is alien to the legacy we’ve inherited from America’s ancestors. Never accept social engineering by politicians and bureaucrats who treat us like lab rats, rather than self-sufficient human beings. Those who choose tyranny will vote for Joe Biden and the Democrat Party. The rest of America choosing liberty will vote for Donald Trump. Then, Biden has been sucking at the government teat for 47 years. Trump gave up his life of luxury to serve in Washington, meanwhile, Biden gave up nothing to make a living on the taxpayer’s dime. Later, The New York Times printed that the experts believe the pandemic will end sooner than expected and the President’s efforts have been working with remarkable efficiency. Americans ought to be proud of what America has done. Trump has brought this country through the most dangerous pandemic in 100 years by embracing science, while critics were maligning him and trying to remove him from office. Trump didn’t kill 200,000 Americans he saved millions because of his decisive action and Operation warp speed. Afterward, Dr. Mark Siegel, author of the new book COVID: The Politics of Fear and the Power of Science, joins the show to stress the dangers of lockdowns and how it undermines people’s liberties. In fact, CDC data now indicates that 79% of COVID infections occurred in mask-wearers. Siegel referred to masks as fear-props adding that people that stay home will spread the virus amongst the people in their homes. Finally, Congressional candidate Wesley Hunt calls in with an update on his campaign for Texas’ 7th District.

Rough transcript of Hour 1

Hour 1 Segment 1

I couldn’t sleep last night. I said, What’s the problem here? What’s the problem here? Some days, folks, don’t you feel like you got the world on your shoulders? Thank you, Mr. Producer. You’re looking out. Outside your window, outside your house, and you’re thinking, gee whiz, why is it that so many people. I persuaded. To support tyranny. To destroy their own lifestyles, you’re looking out the window. And you’re wondering. I said to myself. What else can I do? I don’t know what else I can do. Then I thought, let me let me put pen to paper, let me write something in maybe. You Levinites. Millions of you will print it out. And distributed. As part of our effort. To support you. Thomas Paine’s and Paul Revere is out there. First, you have to agree or like what I wrote. Otherwise, I know you don’t want to distribute it. But it’s. Joint effort at pamphlet tearing. Getting something in people’s hands to try and persuade them or motivate them. And so I call this piece, Do you choose liberty or tyranny? For most of us, there are few, if any, opportunities to demonstrate our devotion to this great nation. Those among us who joined the military, our law enforcement and protect us from foes, foreign and domestic are small and no. Yet we have the power to determine our own fate and the fate of our nation by the simple act of voting. And in a precious few days, we, the people will decide for ourselves, our progeny. And for the rest of time. If America will remain a vibrant and free constitutional republic, the likes of which the world has never known. Whether America will become just another nation in decline. Going the way of Athens and Rome. But in a shorter time. This election will decide. We will decide if we wish to live in freedom or tyranny. In sunlight or darkness. In prosperity or poverty. The choice could not be starker. And the choices aren’t. We must ask ourselves, what will our children and grandchildren think of us? How will history judge us?What would our ancestors say of us if we so casually and without duress? Turn aside mankind’s greatest achievement and vote four thousand years of decline, gloom and doom. Each successive generation must commit to ensuring that the next generation lives free. We must reflect on the selflessness with which Americans have sacrificed and died on battlefields throughout the world and in our own revolutionary and civil wars. So that we might appreciate what we have inherited. A country in which we live and flourish in a civil and open society. As I explained in liberty and tyranny. Too often, liberties permanence makes its manifestations elusive. Or invisible to those born into it. Even if liberty is acknowledged, it is often taken for granted and its permanence assumed. Under these conditions, the statists agenda, that is the Democrat Party’s diabolical plans can be alluring. It is not recognized as an increasingly corrosive threat to liberty, but rather coexisting with it. But all liberty loving citizens should know better. And be alarmed by the ascent of tyranny, not only in the Democrat Party, but throughout the culture. Nor should we be confused or taken by the various gnome players designed by the Democrat Party to deceive us into believing that their movement is some kind of a people’s movement, such as democratic socialism. Like all such movements, they ultimately rely on the iron fist to control the people that serve them. As I’ve noted before, the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee, Joe Biden, who has perfected the politics of deceit and manipulation, vows his pursuits in moral indignation. Intoning in high dungeon the injustices and inequities of liberty and life itself, for which only he and his party can provide justice and bring a righteous resolution. And when the resolution proves elusive, as it has during his47 year political career, he demands ever more authority to wring out the imperfections in mankind’s existence. Hence his hundred and ten page Marxist manifesto. Unconstrained by constitutional prohibitions. What is left but Biden’s own moral compass, which has already led him astray. He’s never circumspect about his own shortcomings. Failure is not a product of his beliefs, but merely want to power and resources. That’s are born endless rationalizations for seizing ever more governmental authority. So the Democrat Party’s intention to destroy the Supreme Court by packing it with kindred ideologues. The expansion of the U.S. Senate to create a supermajority. One party Democrat rule. The elimination of the filibuster rule to crush any opposition to the Democrat Party’s lawmaking agenda and the elimination of the Electoral College in order to prevent millions of Americans outside the big cities and most populated states from participating in the electoral and governing system. Thereby ensuring Democrat Party dominance for decades. In short, the fundamental transformation of America from a constitutional republic to a Democrat Party leviathan. We must never accede to the terms of our economic and political surrender and servitude. We must never abandon our children and grandchildren to a dark and bleak future. We must never accept a fate that is alien to the legacy we’ve inherited from our ancestors. We must never accept social engineering by politicians and bureaucrats who treat us like lab rats rather than self-sufficient human beings. For those who choose tyranny over liberty and vote for Joe Biden and the Democrat Party, they do not speak for the tens of millions of us who revere the principles undergirding our society and appreciate the fruits of our economic system. Nor do they get to dictate the terms of our existence is they contort the constitution and the law to accommodate their political ends. We must not be compliant to their demands and desires. We must vote. Vote for President Trump and the Republicans and rally our families, friends and co-workers and neighbors to vote for President Trump and the Republicans. And we must like our forefathers who founded this magnificent country. Become active in our own survival. If you agree with these words. Please consider making copies. Of this essay written in the early hours of this morning. Do you choose liberty or tyranny? And consider sharing it with family members, friends, co-workers and neighbors. Spreading the word far and wide. Millions of you. I get nothing out of this. Except the hope that we will overcome. I’ll be right back.

Hour 1 Segment 2

We reposted you choose liberty or tyranny on Facebook, on Twitter, on Parler and on the home mothership Web site. Mark Levin show dot com again. I hope you’ll make copies of this and distribute it. Back to basics, back to basics and when I was writing this. I was thinking of the men who fought the Revolutionary War. And died never to even see the birth of this country. And he had fought for the principles and the beliefs. And the war is between then and the civil war and then I was thinking about the civil war and the various battlefields we visited. Thousands of men killed. Not knowing how the war would turn out. Thousands. In battles each battle. Now they’re all but forgotten. Today. World War 1. Most young people know nothing of World War 1. It was a horrific war. Horrific. With deadly gases were used in all kinds of horrible things happen. And then, of course, World War 2. The brutality of that war. And some of you fought in that war who were listening to this program. And I think of my grandfather, Mole. And what he must have been thinking. When they rushed the shores of Iwo Jima. And so many were killed right on the beach. A volcanic beach. He also fought in Guam. And his brother in law and my great uncle. For Guadalcanal. I often think of this, I think of the. The old black and white movies you watch. Of these battles. And then there’s the Korean War, which is a horrific war. The war in Vietnam. So many other wars. In Iraq and Afghanistan, it’s not my intention to list the more we’d be here all night, wouldn’t we? Do you think the people. Who fought for this country? Carrying the American flag. Which our athletes today disgrace. These men, all Americans. Diverse, but it didn’t matter. All Americans. What do you think they would say? If you were to ask them, do you choose liberty or tyranny? Do you think they would support the bastardization of the constitutional system that they fought for? Some of them died for. Do you think they’d support one party rule? Do you think they would support something called democratic socialism? There’s what they fought for. Is that what they believe them? Try interest men and women of all backgrounds, all colors, all faiths. Have fought our wars. And then I’m going to say something I’m really not supposed to say in the current culture. This phrase white privilege. The vast majority of the men who fought these wars were white. Not all. I didn’t say all. I said the vast majority were white. Well, we’re one, well, we’re two, and so for. The vast majority, not all and all deserve I respect. In our blessings and our thanks. It’s not my point. Was a white privilege. To fight in World War One was a white privilege to fight in World War Two. So hateful and contemptible. And perverse. Has the discussion become in this country, no longer do we talk about Americans. There’s a political party. That far too often. Has been the party. Of evil and diabolical purposes. Not all the time. But enough of the time. And that’s the Democrat Party. Not the Republican Party. The Democrat Party. The Democrat Party’s, you know, because your listeners to this program. Was the home of slavery. It was the party of the Confederacy. That’s what it was. After the Civil War. Many of its members. Founded something you may be familiar with, the Ku Klux Klan. It is a party that, at least in significant part, supported the abuse, the killing, discrimination against our black citizen. For another hundred years. Now, people will point to some Democrats who didn’t, of course. I’m not talking about all Democrats. Today, the Democrat Party stands for the evisceration of the Supreme Court, separation of powers, checks and balances, the evisceration of the United States Senate, the evisceration of a filibuster rule that is intended to allow for deliberation rather than the railroading of legislation and the elimination of the Electoral College, which eliminates the suburbs and rural areas from participation in this government.

Hour 1 Segment 3

There is an arrogance with Joe Biden. Now, you can tell he think he’s got this election all locked and leaves all the polls. Maybe he’s right. Maybe he’s not. But this gives you a little bit of insight how he’s going to treat people. He’s always been a very nasty, angry man. With a rather sinister look on his face with a phony smile. And he brutalizes people with whom he disagrees. The media consider all of that. So here’s Biden with WKRC-TV yesterday. And he’s asked a question by a reporter by the name of Kyle Inskeep, cut one go. Gallup reported last week 54, 56 percent of Americans said that they were better off today than they were four years ago would have been under the Obama Biden administration. So why should people who feel that they are better off today under the Trump administration vote for you? Well, if they think that they probably shouldn’t think 54 percent American people are better off economically today than they were in our administration. Their memory is not very good, quite frankly. And in addition to that, we have a president who doesn’t share the values of most Americans with a president who doesn’t share the values of most Americans. See what I mean? Vicious, nasty man. He was asked about 56 percent, not 54 percent of the people, the better off. Well, then you probably shouldn’t support them, he said. Like screw off. That’s a majority of the people. And he says your memory is not very good. Now, that’s pretty ironic coming from him. And then he resorts to the usual. We have a president who doesn’t share the values of most Americans. Let me put it to you this way. Joe Biden. Has been sucking at the government teat. For 47 years, 47 years, we’ve paid this man tens of millions of dollars in salary, medical benefits, pension benefits, junkets and God knows what else. You and me on our Don. On our dime. This is a man who who never even tried to succeed in the private sector. Because he couldn’t. Any word? This is the kind of man they can only succeed in government. When he talks about sharing vows that Donald Trump doesn’t share our values. Donald Trump is a nonpolitician. He’s an outsider. He’s built skyscrapers. He’s built resorts all over the world. You know, they say inherited some millions of dollars. But people inherit millions of dollars. They make nothing of themselves. He built so much of New York and they try and tear him down and go after his taxes. That is a fact. That is a fact he’s employed tens of thousands of people of all races and creeds and religions and backgrounds. Not true with Joe Biden. Joe Biden says that Trump doesn’t share our values. So Donald Trump gave all that up. To run for president. Most people didn’t think he could win. He won. Since before he won. As a candidate. They’ve sought to destroy him as the president elect, they’ve sought to destroy Mr. President. They’ve sought to destroy him. That’s because he hasn’t been in bed with the media for 50 years the way Joe Biden has. That’s because he stirred things up. He wants to change the way Washington works and for the better. But Washington doesn’t want to be stirred up. And so the Democrats. And establishment Republicans. I’m more than happy. To work with the media and it turns out the hardcore leftists in order to preserve what they want. Donald Trump does share our values. It’s Joe Biden who doesn’t share our values. Most of us haven’t worked for the federal government for 47 years, even though the great people in our bureaucracy, most of them haven’t worked for 47 years. Joe Biden doesn’t even know what America’s values are. This is the third time he’s running for president. Third time. Because he wants to be president. He doesn’t care about his own health. How old he is. He wants the power and the power to do what? What is the. Last time Donald Trump talked talk excuse me, Joe Biden talked about individual liberty. When’s the last time Joe Biden said, I love my country? I support the police. I insist. On just laws and order, law and order. He doesn’t. Now, you might say, well, had a great debate performance. No, he didn’t. Unfortunately, the president was debating two people was horrific. To watch, I’m being quite honest about it, I’ve said it so the media can repeat it all. I want to watch how that how that debate was handled horribly. And subsequently. The attacks and the attacks and the attacks. But here’s Joe Biden again. This is embarrassing. Okay. This is why they don’t want him talking to the press. You heard the first point, so 56 percent of Americans probably shouldn’t vote for me because he’s arrogant. He’s cut to go. We have to come together. That’s why I’m running. I’m running as a proud Democrat for the Senate. When I had as a proud Democrat for vice president, I’m running as a proud Democrat for president. He tried to reverse course. He did that twice yesterday. What else did he do yesterday? He couldn’t remember Romney’s name. No, I don’t hold that against him. I try to put Romney’s name out of my head to. He’s quite the Rasputin. But cut three yesterday. Go ahead. I got in trouble when we’re running again, the senator who is a Mormon. The governor. OK. I took him on. I don’t know what he’s talking about, Romney ran for president, he is running against Obama. He’d been governor of Massachusetts. He’s a senator from Utah. Quite the carpetbagger. Biden never ran against Romney. And he can remember Romney’s name. You know, it’s really quite appalling what the Democrat Party has done here and what the media are doing here. Protecting this man. And what about court packing? You know, I’ve said before, why do people keep asking me more a stance? Just say he supports packing the court. And if he doesn’t, he should say I will affirmatively prevent my party from packing the court, but he’ll never say that. And so again, yesterday, WKRN, CTV, I believe that Cincinnati cut Fargo before they came. What I want to focus on is, I’d respectfully suggest, is what the packing court packing is going on now. Never before an election has already begun and millions of votes already cast. Has it ever been that a Supreme Court nominee was put forward? It had never happened. So let’s stop. So. So I’ve tried to explain this yesterday. So let me do it again, because the lies continue. We have a mishmash of voting now thanks to these Democrat liberal states. We have one state where voting occurs. I believe it’s 60 days before the election. In most states, at least 30 days before the election and all forms of voting. So when he says this is the first time in history that a nominee has been put forward while people are voting. He’s a liar. And what do I mean by that? We’ve never had situations like this in our history where voting goes earlier and earlier and earlier. And so what he’s saying, which of course, is absurd, is that let’s count it together. August, September, October, November, December, January. The last six months of a president’s first or second term, he shouldn’t nominate anybody to the Supreme Court. The last six months. Now, how appalling and absurd is that? What he doesn’t say is 22 presidents on 29 occasions have nominated people to the Supreme Courtin the last year of their presidency. I’ve also heard them throw around this name, Merrick Garland, as justification, I believe Chris Wallace did this the other day for the anger that takes place. And that the Republicans started it because. In his last year, Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland. And the Republicans wouldn’t even take it up for a vote. Let me let me try this to see if people can understand this, so I’ll talk slowly. The Merrick Garland case is precedent for nothing. It’s not the first time it’s happened. That situation has happened many times. That is, a president of one party nominates an individual. In the last year of his first or second term. And that individual. Is voted down typically because the Senate is controlled by the opposition party. There’s no requirement. That the Senate take it up. Or that the Senate confirm. And so presidents free to nominate, which is exactly what Donald Trump has done. But it turns out the Senate is have his same party. So it’s moving to act to confirm. Judge Barrett. To Justice Barrett, If Obama’s Senate had been a Democrat Senate Merrick Garland, Judge Garland would be Justice Garland. That’s how it works. It’s both a constitutional process. And a political decision when it comes to the Senate. There’s nothing do with that. So to keep saying that the Democrats were angry. And so a Republican president shouldn’t nominate when he is a Republican Senate is absurd. Illogical and a historical and I hope the media out there finally grasp what I’m saying. I said it nice and slowly. So hopefully they’re listening nice and slowly. This president did exactly what presidents have done in the last term and the Senate of the same parties doing exactly what Senates in the same party have done, confirm a nominee. That’s nominated by president of the same party, in some cases confirm a nominee who’s nominated by president of a different party, but rarely. Rarely. You know, when Franklin Roosevelt was president, one of his nominees was a fellow by the name of William O. Douglas, who nominated him I think he was 36 or 38 years old, had very little judicial experience. He was working for one of the FDR New Deal created bureaucracies. But he was a leftist and he was young. You want to get him on the court. You know how long as hearings where Mr. Producer. There were none. These journalists who pretend to know American history, particularly when it comes to the courts. No, nothing. I’ll be right back.

Hour 1 Segment 4

I just picked William O. Douglass because he was the longest serving Supreme Court justice in American history, 36 years plus 36 years plus he’d been chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. FDR calls Mendoza’s office. He didn’t know FDR that well. And FDR says, I’m going to appoint you to the Supreme Court. FDR nominates Douglas on April 15, 1939, and the Senate confirms him on April 17th, 1939, 48 hours later. But this hearing, they say today is going too fast, Mr. Bridges. It’s coming too fast. And I’ve been watching this hearing all day. It’s been in the background as yesterday. And. Judge Amy Coney Barrett has been fantastic, absolutely fantastic. Kamala Harris is speaking now. She’s talking about all the people the president killed as a result of the virus. She so many tears below intellectually. Somebody like Amy Coney Barrett, it’s just embarrassing. Embarrassing. And Biden on court packing. He showed a little bit ankle, but this is not really an answer either. Cut, forgo what before they get. What I want to focus on is, I respectfully suggest, is what the packing court packing is going on now. Never before an election has already begun and millions of votes already cast. Has it ever been that a Supreme Court nominee. So I’ve answered this. Go on. For one of the reasons is the Constitution implies that not only shocked the American people get to determine who will be on a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court or federal courts is when they pick their senator and their president, because the president names and of the Senate is nothing inthe in the Constitution that limits a president’s term. When it comes to the appointment of a justice or a senator’s term, when it comes to a confirmation vote, he has no idea what he’s talking about. He’s all muddled. Go ahead. That’s the focus. I’ve already spoken on. I’m not a fan of a court packing, but I’m not. I don’t want to get off on that whole issue. I’m not a fan. So what does that mean? Up or down, Joe? Up or down? I don’t want to get off on that issue. Ladies and gentlemen, we need to get off on that issue because that determines whether our Constitution is going to function properly. It determines whether you’re going to live in a free country. It determines and affects the kind of life you lead. This is the most important question in the whole damn campaign. What are you going to do to our Supreme Court if you get your way? Joe, what are you going to do? I’m not a fan of this, but I’m not really going to get into this. It’s shocking how most of the press, not the local press, but most of the national Washington and New York press lets him get away with this horror. We got a lot more. I’ll be right back.
