On Monday’s Mark Levin Show, The media says President Trump’s character is defective, even though there are Presidents that have used the FBI against newspapers and political opponents in the past. Yet, people criticize President Trump for Tweeting. In fact, our 2nd President John Adams jailed his dissenters, and JFK used the IRS and FBI to go after political opponents. LBJ took it a step further using the CIA against critics. Still, critics are obsessed with Trump’s Tweets. Then, just two weeks before an election Dr. Fauci was on 60 minutes to hurt President Trump’s chances. Fauci and Biden oversaw the Swine Flu pandemic and way more people were infected than with coronavirus. While the coronavirus is more deadly it hasn’t spread as much as the Swine Flu did, and if it were just as lethal the casualties on Biden’s watch would have been catastrophic. Even VP Biden’s then Chief of Staff, Ron Klain, says that Obama and Biden dodged a bullet concerning the lethality of the disease. Later, Hunter Biden isn’t the issue, Joe Biden’s lies to the American people are the issue. The left inside of the media rushes to cover Biden by ignoring the story. Even the US Director of National Intelligence has stated that the information found on Hunter Biden’s laptop is not part of any Russian disinformation campaign. John Ratcliffe added that politicians like Adam Schiff are politicizing the intelligence community to lie and cover-up for Joe and Hunter Biden. Biden has a history of lying that cost him an earlier run for the presidency and he has kept up the lies for 47 years. Afterward, Sen. Steve Daines calls in to discuss what’s at stake in the Montana US Senate race. Finally, House candidate Yvette Harrell calls with an update on her campaign for New Mexico’s 2nd congressional district.

Rough transcript of Hour 1
Hour 1 Segment 1
We had a lot to cover and we’re gonna do it enthusiastically here, but before I do. You know, there is an odd thing on TV and radio that people will say they support Trump, but he’s very defective. He’s got character flaws and all. I hear this all the time. Especially it’s tweets. I just wish he would stop tweeting. Maybe, maybe not. But let me give you some context. You’ve had presidents. Who views the FBI and the IRS and the CIA against their political opponents, against newspapers? You’ve had presidents. Who’ve arrested political opponents? You’ve had presidents who’ve closed newspapers. And Donald Trump tweets. I am sick and tired of people. Who think they’re above it all and above the fray. We know Donald Trump has character flaws. I know everybody has character flaws. This election is about the survivability of this country. George Payton had character flaws. In fact, John Adams was the one who started locking up political opponents in. Journalists, he didn’t like shutting down newspapers. John Adams, our second president, one of the founders. Woodrow Wilson. Same thing. Franklin Roosevelt. Unleash the Internal Revenue Service against his political opponents, against publishers he disagreed with. Rounded up 120000 Japanese Americans and Americans of Japanese descent. Considered our great president. JFK used the IRS and the FBI against his political opponents, conservative groups and newspapers. It will give. Tax return information does buddy Ben Bradlee, who would print it in Newsweek at the time? LBJ did him one better use the FBI, the IRS and the CIA. We all know about Nixon. Nixon was following on LBJ SEALs. But the media hated Nixon. Obama We know all about Obama and his use of the IRS. We know all about it fast and furious, we go on and on. His attack on the Associated Press, his attack on Fox News, his attack on a New York Times reporter. President Trump hasn’t done any of that. He tweets. So let’s not pretend he has character issues that are that are offensive or that he abuses his office or any of the anything of the kind. He’s actually been. One of the most well-behaved and ethical of our presidents, regardless of what people say about him and think about him. Regardless of what media matters at phony criminal front group says, regardless of what media it says, hey, by the way, you hear about Jeffrey Toobin, legal analyst from CNN. Mr. Meadows, did you hear that one? Well, we’ll have to circle back. You know. This thing zoom. United’s tended to zoom into your genitalia, are you Mr. Producer? But CNN has no standards. So there you go. We’ll get into that a little bit later. So it’s not hard for me to come on here and attack our president over his tweets, then say I’m going to vote for him anyway. Twitter irrelevant. The vast majority of people are going to vote against. We’re not voting against him because of a particular tweet or his tweets. They’re going to vote against him because he’s been brutalized and they’re too stupid to realize what’s on the line. They have responsibility, too. They have accountability to people who vote. One other thing before I jump in. Anthony Foulkes. Why is Anthony Fauci on 60 Minutes a little over two weeks before the general election? He says he doesn’t want to be political. He’s never been political, never been partisan, never used in ads. Why is he on 60 Minutes? Before the election, trashing the president. And the president’s rally basically saying, yeah, he kind of knew that he was gonna get. The virus. Anthony found she is a liberal and he found she loved Hillary Clinton. And I want you to remember something in 2009 with the swine flu, the H1N1 flu, which was handled in a disastrous way. According to Joe Biden’s own chief of staff. Anthony Fauci held the same exact position in the federal government that he holds today. Far more people got the swine flu than got the corona virus. And can you imagine if the if the swine flu was as deadly as the Corona virus, Mr. Producer? We’d be talking about hundreds and hundreds of thousands of more deaths. And even Ron Klain, again, the former chief of staff to Joe Biden. He said they really dodged a bullet. Because if the swine flu had been a truly deadly flu. There would have been enormous amount of carnage because Biden and Obama and foul, she mishandled. In fact, she never gets tough questions because fouled she is another foil to use against the president. He is another foil for a narrative. And so the people in the suburbs and senior citizens who aren’t supporting this president, aren’t you folks talking about your neighbors? Always criticizing Fauci and then all TB. That’s an unforced error. Why don’t they explain things on TV rather than the surface level nonsense? Why was Fauci on 60 Minutes, he was on 60 Minutes to do harm to the president. That’s the swine flu. And Joe Biden says, I keep him on and I listen every word. So if Fauci says shut down the economy, they’d shut down the economy over the virus. All the other maladies that that result from shutting down. All the other physical, mental. And life disasters that occur as a result of that apparently are of no consequence to why you can’t have somebody who is myopic. Who’s myopic, who only operates from things that show up on his or her desk. Running a country. The person running the country has to make decisions across the board that affect a lot of people. Now, I want to jump into this again laptop, these e-mails and text these photos and videos involving Hunter Biden and Joe Biden. The big story here is Joe Biden. If we’re just Hunter Biden, nobody will give a damn. The big story here is Joe Biden. Joe Biden has lied repeatedly to the American people. He lied about knowing nothing about charisma. Nothing about Hunter Biden’s business deals. That’s what he said. He said it repeatedly and he’s on video saying. And this is the problem the Democrats have. The New York Times, The Washington Post and the Democrat Party media, they’re trying to figure out how do they protect Joe because Joe lied to the American people, lied to you. And the way they’re trying to do this is to raise questions about the authenticity of the information and to attack those who’ve brought it forward. Whether it’s a gentleman who runs a computer shop. Whether it’s Rudy Giuliani, it’s a Republican plot, and now it’s the Russians had it again. It’s a Russian disinformation campaign. No, it’s not. It’s a Biden disinformation campaign. It’s a Biden disinformation campaign. John Ratcliffe is on the Fox Business Channel today with Maria Bartiromo, who has terrific. So he oversees. He has an umbrella organization since 9/11, they set this up. The director of national intelligence, he oversees all the intelligence agencies and all the intelligence information. That is gathered by our country. Adam Schiff doesn’t. John Ratcliffe does. And here’s what he said today on the Fox Business Channel to Maria go. Is this Russian disinformation director? So, Maria, it’s funny that some of the people that complain the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing intelligence. And unfortunately, in this case, it is Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who, as you pointed out on Friday, said that the intelligence community believes that Hunter Biden’s laptop and the e-mails on it are part of some Russian disinformation campaign. Let me be clear. The intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there’s no stop there. So Adam Schiff lies. He is a he is a poison. He’s a cancer. He makes an assertion, another lie. That the intelligence community doesn’t believe this. So the head of the intelligence community says that’s not true. Specifically calls out Schiff as the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, says it’s not true. The intelligence doesn’t support that. But that doesn’t stop the Democrat Party and the Biden campaign from regurgitating this. Go ahead, dance that supports that. And we have shared no intelligence with Chairman Schiff or any other member of Congress that hundred Biden’s laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign. It’s simply not true. And this is exactly what I said. I would stop when I became the director of national intelligence, and that’s people using the intelligence community to leverage some political narrative. And in this case, apparently, Chairman Schiff wants anything against his preferred political candidate to be deemed as not real and is using the intelligence community or attempting to use the intelligence community to say there’s nothing to see here. Don’t drag the intelligence community into this one. Hunter Biden’s laptop is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign. And I think it’s clear that the American people know that. No, but it’s part of a Biden Democrat Party disinformation campaign just like 2016. Was part of the Obama Biden Clinton interference in our election and disinformation campaign. And they’re trying it again. But this is a treasure trove of evidence, emails with names, dates, texts with names, dates, photographs, videos of Hunter Biden and lewd situations also taking illicit drugs. Signature of Hunter Biden on the contract when he turned in the computer. 90 days to take it back. And after that, it belongs to the shop owner. There’s tons of evidence. If the media would follow it. But they don’t want to follow it. They don’t want to follow because it would expose Joe Biden as a pathological liar his entire life. He has lied about so many things. Cheating in law school, plagiarism on his run for president before lying about his academic status, lying about scholarships, lying about his IQ, lying about grades. Now lying about where he stood when it came to integration 40 years ago. Lying about his position on the 1994 crime bill when his name was attached to that bill, it was the fault of the state’s, don’t you know? Forty seven years as a politician, a liar. But he’s got sweetheart relationships with these journalists and these news outlets after half a century. He’s leaked to them and they have leaked to him. Not so with the president. He’s an outsider. And let me show you what a fraud the media are. Here’s Andrea Mitchell on The Today Show today. Complete, absolute. Unbelievable. Well, cut three go. There are new questions about an unverified report targeting Joe Biden’s son and not verified report. We don’t get an unverified dossier. An unverified face application. And unverified story in the Atlantic, unverified. This is unverified. If this is unverified, I’d love to see what verified is, ladies and gentlemen. So I would ask, whatever her name is. I would ask the people. On The Today Show, what have you done to verify your reporter’s? You have research and you have in and what have you done? Have you tracked down any of the names I see? Fox News is beginning to do that and people have said, yes, that’s my name and yes, that happened. How hard is that? Go ahead. Think about possible ties to a Russian disinformation effort aimed at influencing the US election. NBC senior Washington correspondent Andrea Mitchell has details on this. Hey, Andrea, good morning. Hi there, Hoda. NBC News has confirmed that U.S. spy agencies have gathered intelligence that the president’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, was dealing with alleged Russian intelligence agents last year on a trip to Ukraine as part of his effort to dig up dirt on Joe Biden. It’s not what I meant, but what does this have to do? Anything. What is this character assassins story has to do with anything? Who cares what Rudy was doing a year ago with the Russians? We have evidence in front of your face, Andrea Mitchell. And you’re reporting like a Russian. Mouthpiece. I’ll be right back.
Hour 1 Segment 2
Let me help Andrea Mitchell, Chuck Todd. Jake Tapper and all the other frauds. All Joe Biden has to do is pick up the phone and call his son Hunter and say, Hunt, is that your laptop? Yes or no? Those are your e-mails. Are those your texts? Yes or no? I’m running for president, the United States, and I need to know. That’s what any other father would do. And you know what, I bet Joe Biden did it. And I bet he got an answer he doesn’t like. That’s why we’re going with Russian disinformation, with Andrea Mitchell on the rest of the media that are lying to us. Absolutely lying to us with propaganda. That’s why we’re getting. You can’t verify these e-mails. All the sudden, the media, that one with the dossier wants the e mails verified. Well, the e-mails are being verified. No thanks to Andrea Mitchell and her ilk. I’ll be right back.
Hour 1 Segment 3
The enemy of the people. The clowns in the media. One’s supposed to be this way. What do we need to do? Lay out the breadcrumbs so the reporters know how to follow so they know how to do a story. They don’t want to do this story. They don’t want to do this story. Andrea Mitchell is a fraud. So what does she do? She goes after Rudy Giuliani. NBC News has confirmed that U.S. spy agencies have gathered intel that the president’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, was dealing with the alleged Russian intelligence agents last year on a trip to Ukraine as part of his effort to dig up dirt on Joe Biden. So what? Was there dirt to dig up on Joe Biden, is Rudy running for president? Giuliani has been digging for information on Hunter Biden’s work from Paris to Ukraine energy company and Joe Biden’s dealing with Ukraine and China’s vice premier. So what, Andrea? Andrea? Focus. You’re having attention deficit. Focus hands. Yeah, give you that. Come on now. We’re talking about Hunter Biden. His laptop in Delaware, which he turned over to a gentleman who has a little retail store. His laptop got wet and he wanted the gentleman to fix it. He signed a document. And yes, you can actually go see the signature. It’s Hunter’s signature. Then he forgot it or he left it in violation of his agreement. So the retail store owner got to keep it. He turned the hard drive over to the FBI after he looked at it, and Rhea noticed Rudy wasn’t involved in their. And he kept some copies. And then because of the unconstitutional impeachment of our president over a perfectly fine phone call, he got annoyed and he gave a copy to Rudy. Now, let me ask you a question. And yet. Have you made any effort to verify any of the information? Have you tracked down any of the people on the e-mails? Have you tracked down any of the meetings? Have you looked at the dates and the times that. And we’re. Why are you attacking Rudy? Because you’re an ass, that’s why you’re before. You’re a fraud and you’re not the only one. The conga line of reprobates, miscreants and malcontents on MSL US Day is infinite. What are you going to do? Bring back this guy, douche, what’s his name? Donnie Gauche. Hey, tramps, Hitler and all of his followers are our brownshirts. Oh, very good, Comcast. And then they say, why is the nation so divided? Why can’t we unite? Why can’t we unite? Andrea Mitchell, I’m starting to think she’s Adam Schiff in drag. If you get my drift, Mr. Producer, there’s really not a dime’s worth of difference between them. And so if you’re part of the Biden campaign, is that all you have to say is I asked my son, he said it’s not as with the. That’s all. We asked Biden, Hunter Biden, then number one hundred Biden as he’s hiding under some rock, but they know which rock hunter had there. Hi there. Can’t do my Jerry Lewis. Is that your laptop, son? You stupid little bastard. I mean, the hunter is at your laptop. No, dad. Oh, okay. So why don’t they just say that it’s not his laptop? We asked. Hunter says it’s not his laptop. Those fingerprints are all over it, even though it is not a hamper. Why don’t they say that? Apparently, they can’t. Apparently they can’t. And so Jenna Arnold. A Biden mouthpiece. Very senior official in the Biden campaign is on Fox News yesterday. And I was actually shocked, Leland Vitter. Committed an act of journalism. And I want to congratulate Leland. You know, the funny thing is, my father never liked Leland, Mr. Produce. You know, he would why he would watch Fox. I don’t like that guy with the hair, you know? But Leland, let me just say this. I watched YouTube yesterday. I’m writing my book. You’re in the back when I watched you. Let me tell you some fellow. You actually were pressing. The Biden surrogate and you weren’t taking any crap, you just give us an answer. And here’s how it went with Jenna Arnold and Leland Vitter. Cut. Whatever it is. Go. Linda. Thank you so much for bringing this up. And I really appreciate Jillian pressing Steve. The representatives from the Trump campaign on the fact that so much of this is unconfirmed, Jenna. Jenna is real simple. You say it’s unconfirmed. Tell us what parts are not true. Hunter Biden knows what e-mails. He hasn’t hasn’t said. Are you saying in the campaign saying that these e-mails aren’t his? It’s unclear to me. I would say that what’s so important right now from the American citizen and media, yourself included, Lee Lynch, is to continue to ask clarifying questions about why the FBI is investigating. Imperative to note that the NSA wrote that Giuliani was being played by these e-mails. But again, I that the easiest for Jenna and Jenna, the easiest thing in the world to do, stop with all the office station. The easiest thing in the world to do would be to say these aren’t Hunter Biden’s e-mails. Nobody, including Hunter Biden and including the campaign, has said it much so hard. Cut six. Go listen to the one time Joe Biden was asked about this. I know you you’d good. I have no response. Not a smear campaign. Right up your alley. You’re always noteworthy. That was a CBS reporter who was able to get that question in the one time that Joe Biden was available. Yes. Let me ask the question gently again. Let me ask Jenna and ask the question. Then you can respond. The question is this. I thought that demonizing the media was a threat to our democracy. Every time President Trump attacks the media, Democrats and yourself included. Can’t wait to yell about that. Don’t the American people deserve leading lender Leland? Standing ovation, Bradley. Go ahead, then, the vice former vice president attacking the person who asks a legitimate question. Well, I don’t know if he attacks the person. I think he just said it was fake news. Is it going to light up yet another smear campaign right up your alley? Those are the questions you always ask. That kind of sounds like an attack to me. That doesn’t strike me as an attack, something other than that. I’m sure you can find some other statements on behalf of the company that are specifically in attack. Like what your other guest just said, that having conversations and working with the Chinese government is the same thing with working with the Nazi party. Like compare apples to apples. OK. The Chinese Communist Party has concentration camps. It was Joe Biden who was over trying to do business with the Chinese and brought hundred Biden along with him to introduce him around. And there’s video of that. You don’t you think? Who we. Okay. So we just lost two hundred thousand Americans. Let me. Ladies and gentlemen. Leland is right. I’m right. All the Biden campaign has to say is it’s not Hunter’s laptop. Those aren’t his emails. Nothing there is, correct. They won’t say it. They haven’t said it. Once again, put yourself in the shoes of a father, your Joe Biden. This story breaks. You call your son Hunter. Hunter. Is that your laptop? That’s the black and white of it. Is that your laptop? Hunter says no. Then the campaigns all over TV this weekend. And all over TV today and all over TV tonight saying. That’s Biden’s laptop. So those are in his emails. But they haven’t said that. Instead, you get the Democrat Party press running interference. Like Andrea Mitchell. Let’s dig up dirt on Rudy. What is Rudy have to do with you digging up dirt? It’s a simple question, Andrea. Or the New York Slimes that’s attacking the new sources that are brought this forward. Isn’t it amazing? We have the vast majority, the Democrat Party media now attacking The New York Post soon to be attacking Fox News, always attacking me. And not at all giving a damn about what to play and why why is this so concerning? Again, it would underscore that Joe Biden lied repeatedly to the American. All about what he knew about his son’s business activities and people would want to know more about what Joe Biden knew. So Joe Biden could at least if we had a legitimate free media, be questioned about this. What did Joe Biden know and when did he know it? They’ve also said to look at his schedule, we looked at his official schedule, and it’s not on there. The meeting with the poorest Ukrainian executive. Really? That must mean that Joe’s in the clear. Of course not. Peter Schweitzer is on this program. He looked at the same schedule and he said there’s a two hour gap in the morning and a two hour gap in the afternoon. So I have another question to follow up that with you. If he spoke to this executive from Paris, Smith, Ukraine, in which he clearly did, according to the email, why wouldn’t they put it on the official schedule, Mr. Bruce? Why isn’t it that there. Why isn’t it there? Because that’s problematic, too, you see. Because Joe wants to hide the fact that a discussion took place. So if we had real reporters in this country. This will be the subject of a serious investigation before a national presidential election. So that the people might have information before they vote, but the job of the media today is to conceal and censor as much as possible. To try and drag their candidate. Who refuses to campaign in any serious way. Who is incapable of talking straight for 60 or 90 minutes? Who is the plaything of the radical Marxist left in the Democrat Party? It’s to drag him across the finish line. That’s the goal. And so they’re not going to do anything. Anything that might harm his presidential campaign. So it’s left to you. Ladies and gentlemen. This isn’t a light, it’s interesting, obviously, the monitoring my comments at the White, I don’t say that because braggadocio is clear. I’ve been saying the president is running against not just the Democrat Party, but the media. This is a line the White House is now using and accurately so. And so what that means, folks, is if Joe Biden wins the corrupt media win. The corrupt media. That have done everything they can to depose a constitutionally elected president. And I won’t go through all the particulars, the ugly particulars, whether we’ve done it many times before in the same corrupt media that’s trying to drag across the finish line, a man who will be 78 years old, the oldest man ever to serve as president, who will go further downhill. During the course of a term of his president, God forbid, if he’s elected a figurehead. And the radicals in the media, the Democrats. Chuck Todd’s the Andrea Mitchell’s, the Wolf Blitzer’s, the Dean Lemons, Fredo, almost. Jake Tapper is all the liberals and the Democrats and the media, they know exactly what they’re doing. They are dishonest and deceitful to you, their audiences. It’s up to you to make this right. It’s up to you to set this straight. They’re not gonna do it. They’re not going to tell you the truth. And they’re not going to all of a sudden become professional journalists. Joe Biden has wanted to be president his entire life. This is the third time he’s running. He can taste it. He thinks he’s going to slide into the Oval Office. Thinks he’ll just slide in without really earning it. Because he believes all these polls. I hope these polls are wrong, but that’ll be up to you. It’s up to you to decide if you want a corrupt media and a corrupt Democrat party and a corrupt presidential candidate. Or if you want to put an end to this. I’ll be right back.
Hour 1 Segment 4
I’m reading this right. Want to double check me, Mr. Producer, Mr. Call’s Turner. That 50 Cent endorses Donald Trump for president. You wanna check that out? Oh, yeah. Oh, well, check that out for me. Very interesting media will go nuts, of course. I see. Barack Obama is going gonna be campaigning in Philadelphia for Biden. Why is he going to lose Philadelphia something? Yeah, Magic Johnson campaigned for Joe Biden, and I ask, quote, Does Magic Johnson familiar with Joe Biden’s record? Early on, as a racist who worked for segregationists and oppose integration, I look at. The votes of African-Americans, some black Americans, I should admit. Are they aware of who Joe Biden is? But then again, I look at my fellow Jews. Joe Biden has a number of Semite on his staff and in his circle wants to undo all the peace that’s broken out in the Middle East. And I read that 70, 75 percent are going to vote, not Orthodox Jews, of course, but the other. Do they know what the hell they’re doing? As my wife likes to say, the problem with the left is their religion and their identity is with their party. The Democrat Party. I’m afraid this is true with the vast majority of minorities. The vast majority of Jews. Vast majority of too many groups. Too many groups. Really, it’s shocking to me. If people knew the real Joe Biden and I’ll never know the real Joe Biden through the media. That’s that’s for sure. I wonder if it would even change some of their minds. I’m starting to doubt it. The magazine, the left wing kook magazine, The New Yorker, has suspended Jeffrey Toobin. Jeffrey Toobin is the legal analyst over there at CNN, or at least he was. And I’ve told you for a long time he was a reprobate, but I didn’t know the extent of it. It’s got a very seedy background and history. He really does in Google at. With his adulterous activity and the birth of a child. So forth and so on. But his it’s all right. He’s he’s standard fare for CNN. CNN, which embrace Stormy Daniels. Remember that CNN, which embraced I have a nasty. The New Yorker has suspended reporter Jeffrey Toobin, sources tell Vice. It’s because he exposed himself during a zoom call last week between members of The New Yorker and WNYC Radio. This trip does remind me never to have him on the show. Toobin said in a statement to motherboard I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake believing I was off camera, I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers. But I hate Trump. Trump, I hate Trump. I hate Trump. No, I just hate it that while there’s an update, I don’t know if it’s accurate. I’m looking at right scoop that he more than exposed himself. Mr. Producer, I’m not going to get into the particulars, but he is part of that circle, you know, schmuck. All right, that’s enough. I’ll be right back.
