On Tuesday’s Mark Levin Show, Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has bitten off more than he can chew. McConnell’s political power must be eviscerated because he’s clawed his way to the top and has held on by scheming and destroying those that oppose him. In a statement released today, Donald Trump blasted McConnell. If McConnell had his way, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Mike Lee, would not be in the Senate today because McConnell attacked all of these tea party candidates. If McConnell were around in 1860 he would have opposed Abraham Lincoln. If McConnell wants a criminal investigation, perhaps he should be the one facing it. Afterward, Peter Schweizer joins the show to discuss Mitch McConnell’s wife’s ties to the communist Chinese government through her family’s shipping business which has earned them millions of dollars. One particular deal quadrupled their net worth and explains why McConnell has never taken a strong position against Beijing. Then, Anthony Fauci is a liar! He now defends Kamala Harris when she says the Biden team was starting from scratch on the stockpile of vaccines. Should he be fired for failing the Trump administration? After all, the Biden Administration says that there was no plan in place, wasn’t it Fauci’s job? Later, President Biden wants to be greater than FDR and has become the leader of Marcuse’s Critical Race Theory movement. Biden is leading the charge on controlling the economy and natural resources through industrial unions embracing the European Marxist idea of climate change known as the Green New Deal. Biden’s also destroyed women’s sports for America’s daughters by allowing more than biological girls to compete in them.

Hour 1 Segment 1

So much to get to, so little time, welcome to the program. I think this time, Mitch, Mitch McConnell, I must have Mitch Pelosi. Mitch McConnell has bitten off more than he can chew. Now, he won’t think he can he won’t think he did because he lives in a bubble where everybody praises his genius and his kerogen and all the rest of the B.S., but the president of the United States just a little bit ago. Unleashed. Against Mitch McConnell and completely eviscerated him. Donald Trump is not going to stay quiet forever, ladies and gentlemen. He’s not going to stay quiet forever, nor should he. He’s not a punching bag for. Stupid lawsuits, which I’ll get to later from the NAACP in this congressman from Mississippi, it’s a. It’s a PR act, more disgusting attacks on people who they disagree with, calling them Klansman or sympathetic, the Klansman. This is sick, sick, beyond belief, but there’s pushback now. Pushback people aren’t going to put up with this and so they’re going to fight back. Oh, I use the word fight, they’re going to argue back. And here’s the statement. That President Trump released. The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political so-called leaders like Senator Mitch McConnell at its helm. McConnell’s dedication to business as usual status quo policies, together with his lack of political insight, wisdom, skill and personality, has rapidly driven him from majority leader to minority leader and it’ll only get worse. The Democrats and Chuck Schumer play McConnell like a fiddle. They’ve never had it so good and they want to keep it that way, we know our America first agenda is a winner, not McConnell’s. Beltway first agenda abidance America last agenda. In 2020, I received the most votes of any sitting president in history, almost 75,000 every incumbent House Republican, one for the first time in decades. And we flipped 15 seats, almost costing Pelosi her speakership. And that is her job. Now, let’s continue. Republicans won majorities in at least 59 of 98 partisan legislative chambers and the Democrats failed to flip a single legislative chamber from red to blue. And images sent it over the last two election cycles, I single handedly saved at least 12 Senate seats, more than eight in the 2020 election cycle alone. And then came the Georgia disaster. What we should have won both U.S. Senate seats. But McConnell matched the Democrat offer of two-thousand dollar stimulus checks with six hundred dollars. How does that work? Became the Democrats principle advertisement, a big winner for them, it was McConnell then put himself one of the most unpopular politicians in the United States into the advertisements. Many Republicans in Georgia voted Democrat or just didn’t vote because of their anguish at their inept governor Brian Kemp, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and the Republican Party for not doing its job on election integrity during the 2012 presidential race. It was a complete election disaster in Georgia and certain other swing states, McConnell did nothing and will never do what needs to be done in order to secure a fair and just electoral system into the future. He doesn’t have what it takes. Never did and never will. My only regret is that McConnell begged for my support, my strong support and endorsement before the great people of Kentucky in the 2020 election, and I gave it to him. He went from one point down to 20 points up and then won. How quickly he forgets. Without my endorsement, McConnell would have lost and lost badly. Now his numbers are lower than ever before. He’s destroying the Republican side of the Senate in so doing, seriously hurting our country. Likewise, McConnell has no credibility on China because of his family’s substantial Chinese business holdings. He does nothing on this tremendous economic and military threat. Mitch is a dour, sullen and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again. He will never do what needs to be done or what is right for our country and where necessary and appropriate. I will back primary rivals who espouse making America great again and our policy of America. First, we want brilliant, strong, thoughtful and compassionate leadership. Prior to the pandemic, we produced the greatest economy and jobs numbers in the history of our country and likewise our economic recovery after covid was the best in the world. We cut taxes and regulations, rebuilt our military, took care of our vets, became energy independent, built the wall and stopped the massive inflow of illegals into our country and so much more. And now illegals are pouring in, pipelines are being stopped, taxes will be going up and we will no longer be energy independent. This is a big moment for our country and we cannot let it pass by using third rate so-called leaders to dictate our future. Now. You see, Mitch McConnell has used leverage in terms of fundraising donors, the Chamber of Commerce, political action committees, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, his stranglehold on the party in Kentucky to claw his way to the top, ladies and gentlemen, and to hold on. He’s not a leader of any sort. He’s a schemer, he’s a schemer permit. And he attacks those with whom he disagrees. He tries to destroy them. He went after the Tea Party with the hope, with the help of Karl Rove and others, literally went after the Tea Party. They failed, but that was their goal, to destroy the Tea Party after the Tea Party won around 66 seats in the House and Boehner becomes speaker. And then he attacks the Tea Party along with The Wall Street Journal. And in the Senate, they won several seats, two or three, and then McConnell blamed the Tea Party for losing two or three or four more that they could have won, he says. And the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal agrees with them. These are full. These are full. And they want to drag us down their hole with them. And as I said yesterday, Mitch McConnell stands for absolutely nothing. And don’t hand me the judges, Harry Reid did more to set the stage for judges than Mitch McConnell ever did. He’s a great tactician, they say we need a leader, we need a statesman, if he wants to resign and become the parliamentarian of the Senate, good for him. And yet Schumer runs circles around him. Harry Reid ran circles around him, the longest serving Republican leader in the Senate, if you can believe that, in the history of the Senate and the Republican Party. And to what end exactly? Are you folks pleased with Mitch McConnell, Mitch McConnell says he will only back candidates who can win. Now, what kind of an idiot makes a comment like that? You can’t be 100 percent sure which candidates can and cannot win. We were told Ronald Reagan couldn’t win. He won a massive popular vote, massive Electoral College victory, despite Mitch McConnell. And he did it twice. Twice. We were told Donald Trump couldn’t win. McConnell didn’t think he could win, but he won. And Trump this last time around. Look at all the House members who won as a result and the senators who won as a result. And then this chick goes to the floor of the Senate after the president, the United States is acquitted of an unconstitutional rogue Senate hearing. And begs prosecutors to charge the former president of the United States. This is what he does. Gives aid and comfort to the Democrats. Aid and comfort to the media undermines the Republican Party, divides the Republican Party. That’s what McConnell’s done. And you need to ask yourselves, why is it that the Republican senators keep electing him to be their leader? Because he threatens them. He tells them he’s going to take their power away. He’s going to use the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the massive amounts of money they raise from big, big corporations and so forth to defeat them, 20 says. And he’s going to keep them off major committees. Then he’ll go around their backs to Politico. To The Washington Post, to The New York Times and others and trash them, I remember the way he did that in trashing Ted Cruz. He’ll get editorial’s out of his mouthpiece over there at the Wall Street Journal editorial page. They’ll trash whoever he wants to trash to. And our friends at National Review, no different. He has no principles. He says, we want to win, I don’t care what these candidates stand for, this is what he says. Whoever they are, whatever they stand for, they can win, I want to back them. Is that what Abraham Lincoln would say? Is that what Ronald Reagan would say? Is that what Donald Trump would say, whatever they stand, whatever they believe in our back then and notice this, he never goes to war with Romney. He never goes to war with Collins. He never goes to war with Murkowski. These are liberals who undermine us all the time. All the time. If Mitch McConnell had had his way, listen carefully, please, Rand Paul would not be in the Senate. Ted Cruz would not be in the Senate. Mike Lee would not be in the Senate, Marco Rubio would not be in the Senate, these are for Tea Party candidates like them or not, these are for Tea Party candidates, none of whom we were told had any chance of winning. Mike Lee came out of nowhere. To win the convention in Utah, Rand Paul defeated the establishment. To get the nomination and win his seat in Kentucky, Marco Rubio was at five percent. We endorsed and we supported and helped him a lot, the Tea Party got behind him. Any beat Crist, among others. Ted Cruz went up against the lieutenant governor of Texas who’s worth a fortune. Of course, we were the first to endorse him and others came in behind us and he won. Any one. If Mitch McConnell had his way, none of those men would be senators even more. If Mitch McConnell was around in 1860, Abraham Lincoln would never have been the Republican nominee. There are others. Others that the so-called Republican establishment preferred a very new party, but nonetheless they didn’t think Lincoln could win any one. He didn’t get a majority vote, that’s for sure. He had a plurality vote, but he won. So this idea that Mitch McConnell can figure out in advance who’s going to win and who can’t win is absurd. What Mitch McConnell is really saying is I want to pick candidates who will do what I tell them to do. Now, who the hell does he think he is? And an hour or two, I’m going to have Peter Schweizer on my program to once again go through issues related to Mitch McConnell. Mitch McConnell wants a criminal investigation. Then maybe he should face one. I’ll be right back.

Hour 1 Segment 2

Why is Donald Trump the only one who faces endless scrutiny? Why is Donald Trump the only one who had to deal with a criminal investigation? Capitol Hill is filled with sleazeballs, self serving, self dealing sleazeballs. And it’s timely, root them all out and we give them a little bit of their own medicine. That’s my own view. You know. After I heard what McConnell said about the former president’s shocking. Shocking. Both of myself now here’s a guy. Who married into a family that has all kinds of deals going on with the communist Chinese regime, he’s made a fortune. How is it that nothing touches him? That would be enough. To have unleashed a special counsel against the president of the United States, Donald Trump. So if McConnell really wants to pursue these battles, then let’s engage, that’s fine by me. I have no problem with it whatsoever. He has been undermining conservatives. For over a decade, he and his mouthpiece at the Wall Street Journal editorial page. His friends at Politico. His cherry picked so-called reporters at The Washington Post and elsewhere, he’s been around a long time, just like Bob. You know, here’s the other thing I was thinking, McConnell’s, almost 80. Biden’s almost daily. Pelosi’s almost 80. Schumer, can you check that out, Mr. Producer? Now the whole world’s is Googling, you want to see a whole how old he is. There’s no new blond. New faces, it’s he’s 70. Well, he looks like he’s 112. All right, whatever. 70. Are you kidding me? He’s an old 70, that’s for sure. But whatever happened to 50 year olds and 45 year olds and 60 and 65 year olds in positions of leadership? So these fools, these old nasty, angry, evil, power hungry buffoons, they’re in these positions. And nobody can replace them because they’ve been around so long, they know how to hold onto power, they’re like mobsters. It’s like Washington is run by a fiefdom of mobsters. And if you go, there is a conservative. You’re either join the mob family or they try to destroy you. Now, Donald Trump would have none of this, none of it. So the mob. The mobsters. Organized repeatedly against him. I don’t understand if Mitch McConnell despised Trump so much, why did his wife become transportation secretary? Why did she lobby for that job? I want you to think about this. If he hated Trump so much, why did he ask Trump to campaign for him in a video? These people are despicable. I’ll be right back.

Hour 1 Segment 3

I want to show you what a complete and unadulterated hack Anthony Fauci actually is. Kamala Harris says there was no stockpile, ladies and gentlemen, no stockpile of vaccines. Now the former head of the CDC. Former HHS officials and Fauci himself had said that’s not correct. That’s not correct. But let’s listen to her on HBO’s Axios on Sunday, and Axios also is busy. Changing. And altering information. To help its favorite candidates excuse me, politicians to it’s a left wing site, they’ve been caught. But more on that later, Kamala Harris on HBO’s Axios Sunday claims by an administration had to start from scratch on vaccination plan such damn lies. Meanwhile, she’s gotten her two shots. Biden’s gotten his two shots. These two were the leading anti vaccine people in the country. I have a relative who’s ninety one and a half, she hasn’t gotten any vaccine yet. I have people in my family that have all kinds of morbidities, they haven’t gotten their vaccine shots yet, no matter what state they’re in, Tennessee, Virginia. New Jersey. That these politicians get their shots. What’s that all about? I said Democrats shouldn’t get any shots, they oppose the vaccine, they said it was all political. So Republicans should get their shots first. Right, New York Times, right, Washington Post. Here’s Kamala Harris on Sunday, cut six go. What are you finding is harder about the Fantomex? Like how are you finding the hole deeper? I mean, the challenge is, first of all, listen to her like she’s actually doing something, you know? You know, Mike, he’s the clown that runs the operation. Axios. You know Mike. I’ve been working at least seven minutes a day on this issue. Really, Mike? Go ahead. Explain it to the mayors. There was no stockpile, right? It’s no, no, no, no. Right, right. You know, power right now, there was tens of millions of vaccines, you liar. She’s a liar. May I call a liar, I think I’ll call her a liar, you liar. Go ahead anyways, no stockpile of vaccines. Right, so we’re looking at there was no national strategy or plan for vaccinations lying again. Folks, what do they think these vaccines came from? And all the infrastructure that’s been placed put in place to produce them, they require very cold temperatures one more than the other. To transport them and to issue them, what do you think they came from, you think they came from Joe Biden in the basement of Wilmington, Delaware? You’d think they came from Kamala Harris in San Francisco. Two of the most dimwitted people to ever be president and vice president, the dimwit twins. Go ahead. Feeding it to the states and local leaders to try and figure it out, and so in many, it’s not a matter of trying to figure it out, you get it to the states who get it to their hospitals. That’s the way it works. That’s the way it’s working today, right now as I speak. Go ahead. We’re starting from scratch and something that’s been raging for almost an entire year. He didn’t start from scratch. You what? These are the luckiest political buffoons on the face of the planet. They walk into office. They’re stupid as hell. They don’t know what they’re doing. They’ve never they’ve never run anything. The vaccines are there waiting for them, and tens of millions of them are waiting for them, the delivery systems in place. Go ahead. And so are you having just your sights now of what’s possible given that and to challenge that everything is possible, we’ve got to figure out a way that has to be our standard. Our standard has to be everything is possible, but we’re going to have to work like heck to get it done, which means, again, no patience, no patience for delay, no patience. That’s enough. She’s a walking, talking nitwit. So here’s you on CNN tonight. Fauci does more media than Michael Avnery in the porn actress ever did. And he has a lot in common with them, I think. I really think he does. So Fauci, who in the past has said that that’s not correct, there were in fact, there was, you know. Things were online, there was a lot, you know, millions of units available. Go ahead. OK, final question then, on vaccinations, because on the issue of whether there was a plan in place before the attempt by the administration took over Kamala Harris, she spoke the vice president, of course, spoke to Bill Axios over the weekend and she said she used this phrase again, we’re starting from scratch. And I wonder if you agree with that, that the vaccination plan, come January 20th of this year, that you were starting from the beginning there or there was something in place that just needed improvements? What I think the vice president is referring to is saying. He was there every step of the way, Fauci. And he’s trying to protect her, he would never do that, the Trumper panspermia, he’s trying to protect her. I don’t know how Fauci get it. We’ll pick up on this, but I don’t know how far she gets to sit there like he’s some kind of outside observer or a third party when his fingerprints, his DNA is over everything he wants credit where he doesn’t deserve credit and he wants the distance where he shouldn’t be able to distance. He’s like one of the Flying Wallendas. Mr. Producer, remember them? The high wire act at the circus. That’s what he is, he’s a Wallenda without the integrity. Go ahead. Actual plan of getting the vaccine doses into people’s arms was really rather vague. I mean, it was not a well coordinated plan. Getting the vaccines made, getting them shipped through Operation Warp Speed was OK. But I believe with the unbelievable. Unbelievable. Do you realize he had nothing to do with the actual hands on development, the hands on production, the hands on distribution, and he’s asked these questions and he doesn’t say, look, I wasn’t involved in that aspect. Your dad talked to so-and-so as such. And so but he says the development of the vaccines were OK. It was a miracle and he didn’t develop them. It was a miracle. It was unimaginable the Democrats trashed it every step of the way, tried to politicize it. And this is how this guy comes off. Now he’s asked about Cuomo, what do you think about Cuomo? And his handling of this and his cover ups and all the rest cut eight go, you’re a New Yorker yourself, though. You don’t live there right now. Andrew Cuomo is coming under a fair amount of criticism now for the big move back to long term care facilities in the midst of this this crisis here. He’s argued that his state was following federal guidelines when he ordered those long term care facilities to accept patients returning from hospitals. I wonder, can you clear that up? Was he actually following that? Stop a second. Now he comments on all things in which he doesn’t really have authority or never did you know, the development of X and that was OK. OK, you Jack. Are you kidding me? OK. And we really are the plan was ambiguous, yet federalism is ambiguous, you see, ladies and gentlemen, the Democrats only want federalism. What it empowers them then they oppose it if it doesn’t empower them. But this is all above his pay grade. So now Fauci, you’ve been commenting on everything else. What do you have to say? You know, you once said that Governor Cuomo was doing a great job. Now, why do you say go ahead to do that? You know, Jim, I can’t. I mean, I’m sorry. I’m not I’m really honestly not trying to evade your question, but I’m not really sure of all the details of that. And I think if I make a statement, it’s probably could either be incorrect or taken out of context. So I’d prefer not to comment on that. Why don’t you tell the truth, Fauci? I’m not going to comment. He’s a Democrat. I like him. You remember the interaction between them, Mr. Producer on TV. How which is going to play what role? There was a love fest. You know, I don’t know all the details, but now and everything else I know all the details, ask me about Trump, ask me anything you want to know. And when it comes to karma, you know, I don’t know all the details. Did you know all the details when you praised a month ago? What kind of scientist is this, seriously? Don’t wear a. Now, where two masks. I’m sorry, the economy is collapsing, you’re out of jobs, you’re out of business. I’m sorry, but I’m sorry it’s inconvenient for you, while I were my four hundred seventeen thousand dollars a year from taxpayers come hell or high water. Oh, I’m sorry. Operation Warp Speed, that that was OK, you know. There’s another one. I’m not against 80 years old people, 80, I intend to retire well before me. You don’t have to, but that’s not my point. He’s there forever, 80 years old, Biden is there forever, almost 80 years old, Pelosi’s hair forever, over 80 years old. McConnell is 80 years old. What about new blood, new thinking, new people? I’m not talking about radical Marxists, I’m talking about like here. Why would you get the best possible scientist? When it comes to these kinds of pandemics. Serving in this position. How do you serve in this position for 38 years, 38 years? It’s not because he’s the greatest scientist or doctor out there. It’s because, well, like McConnell, he’s clawed his way to the top and he ain’t giving it up. What a fraud. I’ll be right back.

Hour 1 Segment 4

Shouldn’t she get fired? I mean, how does he get away with this if he failed the Trump administration, shouldn’t he get fired since they’re pointing his finger all the time at everybody else? And those who succeed, he even puts them down. I think I think Fauci should get fired or he should join the crack team that they have in Albany with Cuomo, he would fit in perfectly there, in my view. So, Fauci, how to accommodate? I don’t know the details. I don’t really want to get into it. It’ll be used against me or him or somebody. Not amazing. Isn’t that I mean, the guy has a press conference after a press conference does Cuomo gets a book deal from Simon and Schuster. Gets an Emmy Award for she’s not really following all this. And so he can’t comment. She’s a liar. You can sue me on that dark. You’re lying about this. Yes, you are, I wouldn’t you love access to all of his emails and text, Mr. Blitzer? We love access to all your emails and texts, maybe to Biden, meanwhile, Biden is doing a fantastic job. Ladies and gentlemen, how many press conferences has that knucklehead held on this subject? None. What did they do so magically that all of a sudden now in the last two days, almost two million people have received vaccines? What did he do? So magically, nothing. This is all crap. To be perfectly honest with you. But don’t worry. Don’t worry. Now we’re going to need to talk more. And a lot. About Biden’s activities here, because they’re going to affect our lives and they’re going to affect your families. They’re going to affect this country in a very significant way. And he’s getting away with this. Where’s Mitch McConnell, Mitch is very busy. Oops, that’s my fault. Mitch is very busy. Trashing Donald Trump. And guess what? You just kicked a hornet’s nest, you jerk, because it’s not just Donald Trump. I have in front of me a survey that shows that 75 percent of Republicans. Have Republicans want Donald Trump to have a key role in the Republican Party? Unfortunately. There wasn’t a survey of how many Republicans want Mitch McConnell to have a key role in the Republican Party. McConnell needs to be exposed. For practicing mobster politics, he needs to be exposed for what he does with the National Republican Senatorial Committee. He needs to be exposed how he goes into these various states to undermine conservative candidates. He’s been doing it for years and I’ve told you about this. And because he seeks now criminal investigations on private citizens, perhaps there should be a criminal investigation involving him, his finances. And the rest of it, I’m not saying he’s committed any crime, how do I know? Well, let me put it to you this way, he’s committed as many crimes as Donald Trump has. He’s committed as many crimes as Donald Trump has. Or to quote Mitch McConnell, this isn’t over yet. No, Mitch, it’s not over yet. So you’re doing a little backpedaling today, it doesn’t matter anymore until you backpedal the hell out of office. Let me even say this to some of these senators who have befriended me. And with whom I’m friendly. In the future, every single one of you and the others needs to be questioned. On whether or not you’re going to remain loyal to Mitch McConnell. Where are you going to support somebody else, a conservative, not part of the McConnell circle, like Thune, who’s that idiot from Missouri? What’s that? Senior senator? I can’t remember his name. Can’t remember the senior citizen Blunt. Oh, that’s right, blunt little Cornyn of Texas say there’s another spellbinder. He just got re-elected barely. But now they’re feeling they’re out, so to speak. Let them feel away. People talk about having these political lists. Well, maybe we should have political lists on who we want defeated. You know, this clown, Murkowski, Lisa Murkowski, do you know she was appointed by her father to her position, Mr.. He was the governor. So he appoints Murkowski to the position. His daughter. I remember when we backed. Joe Miller and Joe Miller won the Republican primary against Murkowski, so she ran as an independent and won with a plurality of the votes. And they’ve now changed the rules, according to National Review and Alaska, to make it much more difficult to defeat somebody like her. But she needs to be defeated, you know what else in my research I found? She is probably the most pro teachers union senator in the United States Senate, including Democrats. That the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers have endorsed her repeatedly for election. That she is their special pleader, that she is their bought and paid for serving in the United States Senate, are you folks aware of this? So she has an enormous number of individuals working the precincts throughout the state of Alaska on Election Day. More on this when I return.
