On Thursday’s Mark Levin Show, Why aren’t the DC Metro Police having their funding slashed? Is it because politicians’ lives are more important than any other citizen’s? Weren’t the riots of last summer much worse than the January 6th riot? Unlike last summer, not a single firearm has been recovered by the FBI in their investigation into the Capitol Building riot. While the left calls this an “insurrection” there were no firearms. Yet, the DC Police are getting an increase to their budget in addition to the 6,000 National Guardsmen and razor wire fences currently protecting the Capitol. Nancy Pelosi called federal law enforcement officers “storm troopers” except when they’re protecting her. Then, the latest installment of the 2 trillion dollar COVID relief bill was passed straight down party lines with Kamala Harris making the tie-breaking vote. Similarly, the H.R. 1 Bill is fashioned the greatest voting reform effort of modern times, likely because it guts the country’s voting system. Anthony Fauci says schools need to update their heating ventilation and air-conditioning systems so the COVID funding is warranted. Yet, in July 2020 several pediatricians said they’d send their kids back to school, and that was before there were therapeutics and vaccines. Afterward, Dr. Marc Siegel joins the show to discuss the latest coronavirus developments in Texas and other parts of the country. Siegel praised Governor DeSantis for his leadership in managing the infection in the state of Florida and pointed to the hypocrisy of the Biden Administration.

Rough transcript of Hour 1
Hour 1 Segment 1
Mr. Producer in America, I am perplexed. Is there a reason why the Capitol Hill police force, the Metropolitan Police Force? Ana having their budgets slashed. Are being defunded in some significant way. Now, this is the reaction after. The violent riots in Minneapolis. In every major city in America. Philadelphia, New York, Seattle, Portland. Is there a reason why? The Metropolitan Police Force in Washington, D.C., is a reason why the mayor isn’t slashing their budget. Is there a reason why the speaker isn’t slashing the budget of the Capitol Hill police force? I’m being honest. Why is it when it involves the citizens of this country, their protection? In our cities, the protection of small businesses. Why is it the answer to Black Lives Matter and Antifa? Thugs and rioters and criminals. People assaulting other people, assaulting the police, actually killing other people. Why is the answer to slash the police budget? But in Washington, D.C., the answer is to increase the police budget, increase the number of police and keep the National Guard. Has anybody given that any thought whatsoever? Now they want you to believe that the attack on the capital. Was worse than the attack on the White House. Worse than the night after night attack with Molotov cocktails, I might remind you, and. And guns. On the Portland federal courthouse. But I want you to hear some testimony from yesterday on a half a minute. And the great Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, it’s a tough state for Republicans, but I hope he chooses to run for re-election. We will back him 100 percent and I hope he gets re-elected. He has turned out to be a superstar FBI assistant director for counterterrorism, Jill Sandborn was testifying yesterday. And I want you to listen to this only 30 seconds hat tip, right, scoop cut to go. How many firearms were confiscated in the capital or on Capitol grounds that day? To my knowledge, we have not recovered any on that day from any other arrests at the scene at this point. But I don’t want to speak on behalf of Metro and Capitol Police, but to my knowledge, none. So to the knowledge of the FBI assistant director for counterterrorism there, taking the lead on the investigations. The federal government’s taking the lead on the prosecution. So she’s speaking for the FBI, she’s speaking for the Department of Justice as far as they know, not a single instance, not one. Not one was a firearm recovered. Nobody has been arrested. For having a firearm, not one. At some insurrection. Go ahead, with an actual firearm weapon in the capital or on capitol grounds, correct, the closest we came was the vehicle that had the Molotov cocktails in it. And when we did a search of that vehicle later on, there was a weapon. But how many shots were fired that we know of? I believe the only shots that were fired were the ones that resulted in the death of the one lady. No gun. The only gunfire was. A Capitol Hill policeman. Shooting the the protester. No bombing. No Molotov cocktails, the place wasn’t on fire, like when the Weather Underground attacked it. And they keep calling this an insurrection. So we had an insurrection, even though the president of the United States at the time called up 10000 National Guardsmen, but they weren’t used. It’s an insurrection led by the president of the United States, even though there was all this preplanning involved, as the media have reported, some of the media. There was an insurrection at the direction of the president of the United States, even though the attack on the Capitol began before he finished his speech. There was an insurrection. An insurrection, even though there were absolutely no firearms. And we have fencing with barbed wire at the top. With razor wire at the top, we still have 6000 National Guardsmen there. Something is very wrong about this, ladies and gentlemen, something is terribly, terribly wrong, and then we’re told the speaker of the House and then the leader of the Senate, the Republican leader. Now, McConnell didn’t know anything. They weren’t briefed on any of the dangers. They didn’t know anything. The FBI director testified yesterday that he never actually read the threat assessment that came on his desk until several days later. Excuse me while they’re very busy. Well, you know what? I was chief of staff to the attorney general of the United States. And we not only had to know what was going on at the FBI, we didn’t know what was going on at the DEA. The marshals, the U.S. attorney’s office, the antitrust division, the civil division, the criminal division. The Civil Rights Division, the Bureau of Prisons, at that time, the IRS, we don’t know a hell of a lot, and we had a system in place that would prioritize urgencies. Do they not have that at the FBI? Did they not see this as urgent? This guy, Ray, what a disaster he gets up there. And a snarky, bizarre kind of way. He hadn’t read the threat assessment. The sergeant arms in the house and the sergeant arms in the Senate, they were worried about optics. They really didn’t do anything. Yet the information was in the hands of the FBI, thanks to the NYPD and thanks to the Norfolk office, they had the information, but now it’s Trump. He incited an insurrection first. He did not. And second, it wasn’t an insurrection. Not only weren’t any firearms. Used during the course of this insurrection, there weren’t any firearms. According to Jill Sandborn, under sworn testimony, FBI assistant director for counterterrorism. Meanwhile, they’re slashing police all over the country, slashing them. The white supremacist White Privilege Police, which, by the way, includes black police, Asian police, Latino police, all kinds of police from all kinds of background, doesn’t matter. Apparently, the only police force that is it racist, the only police force that needs an increase in their budget is the one that protects the Capitol building. And the only time to call in the National Guard is not what our streets are burning. Not what our streets are burning, not what our stores are being looted, not what arsons taking place, not when people are being physically brutalized in some shot. No, no, no. We don’t call in the National Guard. Then you know what Nancy Pelosi calls them then storm troopers. But when they’re protecting her family, they’re not storm troopers. And we need more of them and they need bigger budgets, we need higher fences, we need more military to protect our Congress, but not our citizens. I’m going to play this testimony one more time, it’s only 35 seconds, it completely counters the narrative about the insurrection, the insurrection, the insurrection, luck. It was bad enough what took place. It was appalling enough. But they seek to exploit it for political purposes for a thousand reasons. Go ahead. How many firearms were confiscated in the capital or on capitol grounds that day? To my knowledge, we have not recovered any on that day from any other arrests at the scene at this point. But I don’t want to speak on behalf of Metro and Capitol Police. But to my knowledge, none of these have been charged with an actual firearm weapon in the Capitol or on Capitol grounds. Correct. The closest we came was the vehicle that had the Molotov cocktails. And when we did a search of that vehicle later on, there was a weapon. But how many shots were fired that we know of? I believe the only shots that were fired were the ones that resulted in the death of the one lady. There you have it. I’ll be right back.
Hour 1 Segment 2
The House passed by 10 votes, this two trillion dollar monstrosity, two trillion dollars. It rolls off the tongue. You can’t wrap your head around it. The entire federal budgets, four and a half trillion dollars. They call it this covid relief bill. Only 25 percent of the bill has anything to do with the virus, so that’s one and a half trillion dollars down the toilet for the teacher’s unions. For cities and states that had massive debt even before the virus. It’s really an appalling abuse of power, appalling abuse of power and in the Senate. Well, the Republicans stuck together, 50 of them voted against the 50 Democrats where they stuck together and the vice president finally showed up. Kamala Harris and she voted with her side, 51 to 50 to proceed with a vote. And to the credit of the Republicans and led by Ron Johnson, he’s objected, so they have to read the bill, which is almost 700 pages, and they have to read every amendment that they propose. But Schumer says delays you may will get whatever we want. That is. Two trillion dollars on top of four point one trillion dollars that’s been approved, so that’s. Six trillion dollars. And as I told you last evening, out of that four point one trillion dollars, they haven’t even spent one trillion. And this clown, Fauci, has gone all along with this. He says the schools really do need to change their systems. Excuse me. The hell are you talking about, man? Turns out one of his kids, I say kids, he’s 80 years old, one of his kids are probably in their 50s and 60s. Works for Twitter. Did you know that, Mr. Producer? Maybe that helps explain why Twitter bans and censors virtually anybody who disagrees with Dr. Fauci. And behind this is a two trillion dollar infrastructure bill. And in front of this was the massive H.R. one, and if you don’t listen to this show and you don’t follow, it’s an H.R. one, the way the Associated Press and Reuters report it. This is the greatest reform effort in a. Law in half a century reform effort. This bill has, as its purpose, to steal our republic. And handed to the Democrat Party. It’s that simple. I would ask you, do you want the Democrat Party in power forever without any effective challenge? When you go to vote, you want your vote to be utterly meaningless because they claim that all these other people who are voting, even though they don’t know if they’re voting properly, if you dare to challenge them, show I.D., signature, so forth and so on. That there’s something wrong with you. We know this is a scam. The whole thing’s a scam. But the Democrats are revealing themselves at Surbiton and the question is, how much damage will they do until everybody wakes up? And one of the things I want to get into here is. The Joe Biden child migrant disaster. We didn’t have a migrant disaster, let alone a child migrant disaster on the southern border six weeks ago, we didn’t have a disaster two months ago. It’s gone pretty smoothly, rather rather well. The fencing was going up the wall 500 miles, it was going to be completed, we were going to get by the end of a second Trump administration of full 800 miles a wall that’s effective. He backed the border patrol. He backed ice. He had deals with countries from which many of these individuals are coming, particularly Mexico, they said it couldn’t be done and he did it. He cut a deal with Mexico. You want refugee status in the United States. You seek status while you’re in Mexico or in some other country. You don’t seek the status in America because we know you will not show up for your court date. Ninety five percent of the people are given a court date and there are always two, three, four years away, do not show up. Everybody knows that. So Biden does away with the processes that Trump puts in place for the purpose of allowing chaos and anarchy to take place. Now we have it. We have a human disaster on the southern border. So all those who want an open border, all the immigration front groups, all the big mouse and clowns and Hollywood and professional sports who pretend that they’re compassionate and humane. I have an idea. Open your doors, open your homes and take these kids in. They have nowhere to stay. We’re 94, 95 percent capacity, we’re going to be over 100 percent capacity by the end of the month, we’ve never seen anything like this in the first six weeks of this idiot president. Axios, a left wing site. Breaks the story, somebody leaked the HHS documents to Axios, now we’ve been hearing Psaki say day in and day out, it’s not a crisis. We’ve been hearing the that cloud that runs the homeland security tell us it’s not a crisis. We’ll manage this thing. It is a crisis. It’s a disaster. It’s a disaster for these kids, it’s a disaster for the people on the border, it’s a disaster for this country and they’re coming in here. And if they test positive for covid, they’re being released in the United States, in our communities, people traveling to Massachusetts, to North Carolina, throughout Texas, all over the country. And this idiot, Biden, calls governors in Texas and Mississippi Neanderthal, Neanderthal. He would know, no, I’m not done. I’ll be right back.
Hour 1 Segment 3
So this Web site got these internal documents from Department of Health and Human Services that show how quickly the number of child migrants crossing the border is overwhelming. The administration stretched resources. This is a self-inflicted wound. Against our country, against the people in America who live on the border and the towns on the border against the people trying to come across the border and the spread of covid-19, I notice nobody has Fauci about this. And the week ending March one, the Border Patrol referred to HHS custody, an average of 321 children per day. According to documents obtained by Axios. That’s up from a weekly average of 203 in late January and early February and just 47 per day during the first week of January. The same document says the shelter system is 94 percent occupied and expected to reach its maximum this month. Meanwhile, some of President Biden’s top officials responsible for immigration policy are planning a trip to the US Mexican border this weekend. Wow. So we’re going to pay for a junket. That’ll fix things. The influx of unaccompanied minors is a mushrooming problem for the new president and his policy and social welfare agencies. Behind the scenes, HHS has already moved to open overflow shelters and to increase the speed with which it releases children, the caretakers already in the U.S.. That’s what’s going to happen. What’s happening is parents are sending their kids ahead. This is what’s happening because they know the policy. The kids are not going to be sent anywhere, they’re going to be sent within the United States somewhere. And then the Biden administration wants to bring the parents in to be with the kids. Presto! And then on top of that, we’ll have chain migration. And the week ending March 1st, an average of 174 children were released from HHS custody every day, that was up from a weekly average of 90 in late January, early February, according to the documents. But the number of migrants held in Border Patrol custody longer than three days has been rising nearly each day, according to additional documents reviewed by Axios kids and teens caught crossing the border without legal guardians are being held in Border Patrol facilities for more than three days for an average of 77 hours, as CNN first reported. This week, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas insisted the current situation is not yet a crisis. Don’t worry, it’s not yet a crisis. He’s a liar. That’s all these people do is lie. It’s clear the number of children crossing the US Mexico border could fast overwhelm government systems in ways similar to the crises in 2014 and 2019. And Trump move quickly. Remember what happened then? He said their caravans coming. And then he really pressured Mexico and they didn’t come anymore and notice a cost in their media back then. What do you mean a caravan’s coming? What do you mean this is happening? What do you mean that is happening? The uptick comes while the administration continues to use an emergency public health order to quickly deport migrant adults and some families, including asylum seekers, in other words, were overwhelmed now. The same time Biden has reversed a Trump administration policy of using the public health order to quickly turn away unaccompanied children. And so. The parents. Send their children. The source who provided the internal Biden administration documents expects to see family migration rise over the next months as well. Of course they do. Internally, government officials have been sounding the alarm bells, DHS is expecting a record number of child migrants this year. They figure about 170,000 or more. HHS told the White House it needs 20,000 beds to humanely accommodate. The children who are coming over now. Remember when Biden was sitting there and say, were the people in the Trump just wasn’t ready. Trump didn’t do anything. Trump didn’t do enough. Look at this. Look at this, China. Unleashes this virus on the world. Trump moves heaven and earth to confront it, wrestles it to the ground, gets therapeutics, gets vaccines and on and on and on, and he’s attacked. Joe Biden, opens our borders, encourages parents to send their children into this country. God knows what’s happened to these children during the trip. Some of these people have the virus, we know they’re being tested, not all of them, and they’re being let loose in the country. And by the way, do you know who’s testing them? You know, testing them? Mr. Producer, federal government is not testing them. The towns are the border towns are testing them. Because they’re coming into the border towns and they’re being released into these border towns, so they’re testing them. HHS isn’t testing them. Homeland Security is not testing them. Nobody in the Bush administration is testing them, the towns and the states are testing them and they have nowhere to put them and they released them. The whole country is a sanctuary city. Have you ever in your life seen a president of the United States who doesn’t give a crap about the citizens of the United States? Have you ever seen anything like that? He spends time attacking governors who know exactly what the hell they’re doing and the citizens who live in their states, who know exactly what they’re supposed to do in order to protect themselves from the virus. But he has created now. A human catastrophe on the border. Just as if they take over a health care, they will create a human catastrophe when it comes to our health and medical treatment. They’re creating a human catastrophe with their massive spending, another two trillion and Schumer can’t wait. Schumer wants the money because first and foremost, it bails out California. It bails out New York. If outside Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, it bails out the darkest of the blue states and the lousiest run states of the bunch in the cities to. You and I, we the people. The people who live in these states, the majority who vote for them, not you, the majority who vote for them. They’re going to keep voting for people like this because they’re all going to be bailed out by the federal government every time the Democrats run it. On top of that, they’re pushing a big. Gun confiscation and control bill that they’re developing, they’re pushing a wealth tax. They’re pushing a guaranteed minimum income. They’re pushing and pushing and pushing. Let me ask you a question. What kind of country is this? That’s not the country that was founded. With a focus is on the individual, individual accountability and responsibility, individual free will and freedom. We don’t even talk about that anymore. We don’t talk about faith, we don’t talk about family. We don’t talk about private property rights and hard work and success, we don’t talk about that anymore. It’s always about government programs, government redistribution of wealth, government transformation. Government says this group deserves reparations and this group has to pay for them. And this group is white and this group is not. And on and on and on. What the hell kind of government is this? And those of you are members of the Democrat Party, I don’t care what your race is, how the hell can you be a member of a party like this? What kind of party is the Democrat Party, it’s a party of tyranny. The totalitarian mindset. That’s exactly what it is we all now work for. Pay homage to subsidize the Democrat Party. That’s what we’re talking about here. This one point nine trillion dollars isn’t for the American people. Three fourths of it’s for the Democrat Party and Democrat Party groups and institutions. Your hard-earned income and whatever you haven’t paid in taxes, they just print. They just print it. They have a new idea. It’s not even called the earned child credit anymore. They have a proposal. That everybody who earns under a certain amount. That for every child they have who’s under seven years old, they get thirty-six hundred dollars a year. Now, that could be in addition to food stamps, in addition to other welfare payments, in addition to Medicaid, in addition to all of that. And on top of that. On top of that, they want a. A continuous relief payment. Remember that I read that to you yesterday. They are creating a minimum wage or minimum income for people, you have three kids. Under seven. You get over 10,000 dollars just for having kids, and if they’re over 70, you get 3,000 a kid. Plus, you’re going to get relief. You don’t just automatically continue, plus you’re going to get free medical care and Medicaid, and if they have their way, they’re going to nationalize and you have free medical care. Plus, you’ll get food stamps. Plus, plus, plus, plus, plus. Now, let me ask a question, why would you take a minimum wage job if you’re getting all those freebies? If he can be on the dole and get that kind of money, I’m being quite honest, why would you take a minimum wage job? What if fifteen dollars an hour, whatever the hell it is? Why would you do that? You want. You would so their answer is to flood the country with illegal aliens. The Democrat policies, and they are killing this country. What made this country great was individual responsibility. The freedom to succeed or fail, hard work, smart work, family, family, limited government, limited regulations. A basic level of taxation for basic needs. All the rest of this is a legitimate. All the rest of this pablum in the rest has been imported from Europe, it’s been imported. As a result of the German philosophers and some of the French philosophers. You never believed in individual liberty, who never believed in Republicanism, who never believed in limited government. These are societies. From which we had kings and queens, from which we had fascists and Marxists, America has never had any of this. A relatively new country. America has never had any of this, but we have it now. Right in front of your eyes. It’s unraveling. I’ll be right back.
Hour 1 Segment 4
So we have a disaster on the border right now. Solely made by Joe Biden and his big mouth, he has undone virtually every single system and process the Trump administration put in place to secure the border, protect the American people. And ensure that children were not being sent into the United States by their parents. People seeking refugee status would not be in the United States where they would disappear and not show up at the administrative law hearing. All common sense measures. All common sense measures. But not Joe Biden. And the radicals and the extremists who he has laced throughout the federal government, we haven’t even gotten a foreign policy yet. What China’s on the move again, Iran’s really on the move again, all of our enemies are on the move and all of our allies are biting their fingernails, wondering what the hell is going to happen. And what else has he done, how many of you have? Kids who are in high school. How many of you have girls who are in high school? With the sign of a signature, Joe Biden destroyed girl’s high school sports. Anybody with common sense who isn’t caught up in these radical movements knows damn well. That a boy or really a young man at that point? Whether he wants to be a girl, whether he thinks he’s a girl, whatever. That the best of the girls can’t compete against boys physically. Physically, it’s an impossibility or maybe there is a case here and there where it is, but for the most part, it just doesn’t fly. And so Joe Biden buckles to this, it’s not a civil rights movement that people identify as something that they’re not. That’s their belief, that’s their issue. That’s how they want to live. OK. But you don’t impose that on the entirety of society. You don’t oppose that on the entirety of society, you don’t oppose impose it on high school girls and destroy athletics for a high school girl. Just look how they’re treating our kids. They don’t care if the schools are open. They’re in the back pockets of the teachers unions. He destroys girls sports in high school. I don’t want to hear any more about the kids when it comes to the Democrats and look at the foreign kids, how they’re treating.
