On Friday’s Mark Levin Show, The keystone to our Republic is the separation of powers! Biden’s proposal to pack the Supreme Court is in direct opposition to what the founders of this nation intended. Democrats have historically been against the founding of this country, always trying to rejigger society. Whether it was their creation of the KKK, Jim Crow laws and their opposition to the Civil rights act, or their constant encroachments of the federal Constitutional. This was done to defeat the tyranny of the mob. Federalist 51 states, “This policy of supplying, by opposite and rival interests, the defect of better motives, might be traced through the whole system of human affairs, private as well as public. We see it particularly displayed in all the subordinate distributions of power, where the constant aim is to divide and arrange the several offices in such a manner as that each may be a check on the other that the private interest of every individual may be a sentinel over the public rights.” Then, progressive like President Woodrow Wilson, a segregationist, have always embraced Karl Marx. Marxism is the most widely spread ideology of the 20th century and its responsible for the deaths and poverty of tens of millions. Later, Court-packing requires a Constitutional amendment. This whole fiasco led by the democrats is to threaten the current Justices on the court via the media. Leftist Democrats in the media have called for the resignation of Justice Breyer for speaking up to defend the independence of the Supreme Court. Afterward, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez makes a gross comparison of the previous four years of Trump’s administration and the horrific slaughter known as the Holocaust.

Hour 1 Segment 1
Well, it’s Friday. And I want to give you some food for thought this weekend. And so what I’m going to do and I do this from time to time, but I’m going to do it especially so today. His dive deeply. Into philosophy, art history. Our constitutional construct. Because of Joe Biden, his conduct and what he has proposed today with this commission to study packing the Supreme Court. And so you cannot just. Feel emotionally and understand. The dire threat we face from this man. But understand it from a more important substantive perspective. I first of all. Let’s take a look at what it was the framers of the Constitution were trying to do. They didn’t invent the idea of separation of powers. As those of you have listened to this program before and read my books. As you know, during the revolutionary period, the most important philosopher was John Locke. And in his second treatise on government, John Locke talks about. Rather broadly, separation of powers. During the constitutional period. The most important philosopher and there are many that they look to. Was Charles de Montesquieu. And it’s not skill. In one short paragraph and a very long book. Who basically spells out separation of powers? Between and among the legislative. The judicial. And the executive. The framers of the Constitution having just fought. A revolutionary war. Putting their lives on the line. Against the most powerful military force on the face of the earth fought a revolution not to destroy their society, which is what’s taking place today. But they fought a revolution because they insisted that they wanted a representative republic and they looked at history. As very smart men. They looked at was going on. In the contemporary world, and they saw what took place in France, they had an absolute bloodbath. And so having fought a revolution against a monarchy and having watched mobocracy and France result in an absolute disaster as they tried to implement the philosophy of Rousso. Our founding fathers said we don’t want a mobocracy. And we don’t want an autocracy. That is, we don’t want a democracy. And we don’t want a centralized authoritarian government. We want to do something differently. Having looked at human history, having scanned the governments of the world, having a completely blank slate. They created a republic. A representative federal constitutional republic. The keystone to this republic. Is separation of powers. That’s the keester. They were concerned about the mob, that is factions taking over the government, having temporary control and imposing their will on the American people. You see that happening in Congress today. They were also concerned about an individual seizing power as an executive and imposing his will. From the nation’s capital, you see that in Joe Biden today. The two forms of tyranny that they feared the most. And the constitution was constructed. To try and prevent other two forms of tyranny. That you and I are currently confronting. Confronting. The mobocracy and the autocracy from the same political party, the same political party that never accepted this country is founded. The same political party that was behind the Confederacy, the same political party that for one hundred years was behind segregation and today the same political party that is tearing this country apart, the Democrat Party. It has never embraced our founding principles. Always want to rejigger society. Always want to change human nature. It is an alien force within our nation. Joe Biden. Signed an executive order today, if it’s Friday, it must be executive order day like the rest of the days of the week. To form a commission to study packing the Supreme Court. I want to begin reading something to you. This is your country. This is your history. Your country and your history. That is not taught to recent immigrants, which is why you have the progeny of recent immigrants in Congress and in the media who hate our country. And feel no attachment to it whatsoever. James Madison. James Madison, Federalist number 51 pages, 347 and 53. February 6, 1788. To what expedient, then, shall we finally resort for maintaining in practice that necessary partition of power among the several departments? As laid down in the Constitution. The only answer they can be given is that has all these exterior provisions are found to be inadequate, the defect must be supplied by so contriving the interior structure of the government as that its several constituent parts made by their mutual relations. By the means of keeping each other in their proper places. Without presuming to undertake a full development of this important idea, I will hazard a few general observations which may perhaps place it in a clearer light and enable us to form a more correct judgment of the principles and structure of the government plan by the convention. In order to lay a new foundation for that separate and distinct exercise of the different powers of government, which to a certain extent is admitted on all hands to be essential to the preservation of liberty, it is evident that each department should have a will of its own and consequently shall be so constituted. That the members of each should have as little agency as possible in the appointment of the members of the others. With this principle rigorously adhered to, it would require that all the appointments for the supreme executive, legislative and Judiciary MAGISTRIS should be drawn from the same fountain of authority. The people through channels having no communication, whatever with one another. Perhaps such a plan of constructing the several departments would be less difficult in practice, and that may be in contemplation appear. Some difficulties, however, and some additional expense would attend the execution of it, some deviations, therefore, from the principle must be admitted in the constitution of the judiciary department in particular, it might be inexpedient to insist rigorously on the principle first, because peculiar qualifications being essential to its members, the primary consideration ought to be to select the mode of choice. So what he’s getting at here is look. It can’t be a perfect separation of powers. Because there would be an inability to function. And so what he’s saying here is he’s justifying separation of powers, but he’s also justifying that the president makes the nomination and the Senate confirms in this particular instance. But the great security against a gradual concentration of the several powers in the same department consists in giving to those who administer each department the necessary constitutional means and personal motives to resist encroachments of the other’s. The provision for defense must in this, as in all other cases, be made commensurate to the danger of attack, ambition must be made to counteract ambition. The interest of the man must be connected with the constitutional rights of the place. It may be a reflection on human nature that such devices should be necessary to control the abuses of government. But what if government itself, but the greatest of all, reflections of human nature? If men were angels, you’ve heard this, no government would be necessary if angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. And framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this. You must first enable the government to control the governed and in the next place, obliged to control itself. A dependence on the people is no doubt the primary controlling government, but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxillary precautions. The policy of supplying by opposite and rival interests in each department, the defect of better motives might be traced through the whole system of human affairs. So what he’s saying is, look, human beings. As a matter of fact. Like power. And may try and take power from each other, so we’ve tried to establish through separation of powers the separate departments of government, that is the three branches. Where these branches check each other, they have independent in some areas, overlapping responsibilities. So this policy of supplying by opposite and rival interests, the defect of better motives might be traced to the whole system of human affairs. First. In a single republic, all the powers surrendered by the people is submitted to the administration of a single government. He’s saying what we’re not doing and usurpations regarded against by the division of the government into distinct and separation documents. I’m going to move on. Second, it is the great importance in a republic not only to guard the society against the oppression of its rulers, but to guard one part of the society against the injustice of the other part. So you get the idea. And they spent a lot of time on this at the constitutional convention in Philadelphia, the Federalist Papers, where they were trying to convince the state legislatures. To adopt the Constitution, to ratify it. And it was the key concept. Unique in all human governments up to that time. To prevent the tyranny of the mob. And to prevent the tyranny of the dictator. Now, what does this have to do with anything? Well, this segment’s over, I will explain it when we return. I’ll be right back.
Hour 1 Segment 2
We can’t rush through this, ladies and gentlemen. Now, we have commercials over the course of this program, obviously, and news breaks, but we really can’t rush through this because this is your country, this is your republic, and it’s being destroyed. I don’t want to give you some context for what’s taking place so you can be the Thomas Paine’s and over the weekend with your family and friends, social circles, anybody who will listen, explain to them what’s taking place in this country. There’s no more effective way. And the stem and blunt, what’s taking place, and for us to be well informed and not on our heels, but on our toes. This is the construct set up under the Constitution of the United States since the late 1980s. When an ideology. Was exported from. Europe to the United States. Which was self-identified as progressivism, an ideology that is born from Marxism. Also born in Germany and Britain. The battle has been to destroy separation of powers. The battle has been with every other tyranny and totalitarian regime to centralize power. This was the ideology of the early progressive intellectuals. This was the ideology, whether people like it or not, of Theodore Roosevelt. It was an early progressive Republican progressive. And this was the ideology of a outright racist by the name of Woodrow Wilson. Wilson dismissed the founding, he dismissed the Declaration of Independence, you know, it was Lincoln embraced the declaration before and during the Civil War, and Wilson denounced the declaration and its principles as he advanced segregation and bigotry in the United States. So think about that. But Woodrow Wilson. Despise the declaration and you despise the Constitution, he wasn’t alone, and the reason is because the Constitution hemmed in. The power of a president or the power of the masterminds, the Constitution and Marxism or its bastard child progressivism. Cannot possibly. Work together. And they don’t. And so for over 100 years now, the Democrat Party. Has identified with this. This Marxist or progressive movement and has been attempting. For the over 100 year period to chip away at the firewalls in the Constitution, including separation of powers, it started with Theodore Roosevelt. It moved strongly with Woodrow Wilson. Franklin Roosevelt did enormous damage to our constitutional system and it’s been working that way. That’s been the trajectory ever since. I want to pick up from here. I hope you’ll stick with me after the bottom of the hour. I’ll be right back.
Hour 1 Segment 3
And when you look at some of the celebrated leaders of the Democrat Party. Since the late 80s and hundreds in the early 1980s into current times. You look at Woodrow Wilson, he was a racist, he was a segregationist, he was born in segregated Virginia. He resegregated the military and this is very well known. You look at Franklin Roosevelt. Franklin Roosevelt, who Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden and most Democrats in Washington, D.C. consider the greatest of the president’s. Even people like Conrad Black are blinded by it. This is a man who rounded up 120,000 Japanese Americans and Americans of Japanese descent without any due process, issued the military order. And they were forcibly removed from their homes, their businesses were taken from them, and they were moved into the interior of the country into internment camps. This is also a man who worked with The New York Times in The Washington Post and other media to cover up the Holocaust. And refused to allow Jews who are escaping certain death into the United States. Less than a thousand of them. That’s one of their great heroes, and then Barack Obama, our first black president. Barack Obama was befriended by and befriended domestic terrorists. Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn. Among others. Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn escaped long prison sentences based on a technicality, but they were involved in violent actions against our government far more than ever took place on January 6th. Barack Obama also. Pardoned the leader of the FDLA terrorist Puerto Rican movement. He and his fellow terrorists created mayhem and some death in New York. He refused to show any remorse and Obama pardoned him anyway. These are not great men. There’s a big government man. These are big government, man. They didn’t expand liberty for anybody. Not in this country. Woodrow Wilson. Despised our constitutional system. And today. Joe Biden. Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi. Most of the people in media, these radical movements, whether it’s black lives matter. Or the leftist women in the House of Representatives. They do everything they can day in and day out. To separate us from our history. And to destroy our founding. They want you to believe that this nation in its DNA. Needs to be abandoned. And I sit here and I think to myself. Slavery, segregation. All Democrat Party policies. How does it help? To remedy what took place 150, 160 years ago in terms of slavery and 50 years ago when it came to the Democrat Party and segregation to embrace Marx. How does it how does it fix anything, reform anything, repair anything to embrace an ideology, even the bastard child they call progressivism very quaint. An ideology that has killed 100 million people and enslaved over a billion people and impoverished even more people than that, what is it exactly what kind of redemption and reformation are we going to get out of Marxism or its cheap sister progressivism? How does enslaving the entirety of the country? To a failed ideology. Do anything to resolve anything. It doesn’t, doesn’t. How many more experiments with human beings? With other countries, do we need. You notice? Communist China, a genocidal regime. You notice not a single person in this country who embraces so-called progressivism. Marxism ever leave this country to move the communist China? Have you noticed that, Mr. Producer? Even more? The purest form of communism in terms of a government on the face of the earth today is North Korea. It’s North Korea. You don’t see athletes going to North Korea and living there. You don’t see leaders of Black Lives Matter surrendering their. Their passport, their citizenship in the United States and moving to North Korea. They’d be insane if they did. They’d be insane if they did. What is happening here, ladies and gentlemen? It’s a very diabolical politicians and diabolical movements. Power hungry individuals. Who are abusing this country? How are using our freedom to destroy our freedom, who are using our Constitution to destroy our Constitution? They feel empowered by this. They feel a a rush of self-righteousness revolution could be very exciting to some people. They have power where they never would have power before, fame or at least acknowledgement where they wouldn’t have fame or acknowledgment before. They don’t care about this country, quite the opposite, they’re destroying this country. And there were zombies can be found everywhere. In our public schools. In our courtrooms. Throughout colleges and universities, the tenured faculty. They can be found in the media. Throughout the media. In Hollywood. Because these are armchair revolutionaries. They were celebrating violence all summer long. They are telling us that these people were mostly peaceful or if they were mostly peaceful, then you and I wouldn’t care about it. If they were mostly peaceful, why were they calling federal law enforcement storm troopers, if there were mostly peaceful? Why are they trying to rush the White House? Using Molotov cocktails and other weapons to attack a federal courthouse. Brutalizing our police officers. And yes, killing people. I’m burning things. Far more damage than was ever done on January 6th, and I don’t defend January 6th, one with. And yet these people do defend what took place all summer long and you’ll never forget, I believe. That Joe Biden, for the most part, sat silently even as nominee of the Democrat Party, put out a sentence or two late in the game, and that was it. Kamala Harris encouraged her friends in California. They contribute to an organization, as did a number of staffers on Biden’s campaign staff. That paid for bail for people who are arrested and put in jail to get out. Joe Biden is going through this country. Level by level, degree by degree. And destroying it. He’s just proposed a budget with domestic spending increase of 16 percent. 16 percent. In addition to the one point nine trillion, that’s really three point two trillion, in addition to the 2.5 trillion, that’s really another three trillion, in addition to two more massive spending bills he hopes to put. Through after these first two and this budget bill go through, he will destroy our currency and he will destroy our economic system. But hey, everybody’s demands will be satiated by our generation. Joe Biden has unleashed within the federal government the most radical fringe. Racist movements. Hatched by communists, promoted in our law schools. Into our society. Into our federal government, into the United States military, into West Point. They are pushing it into our elementary school classrooms that our middle school classrooms into our high schools. The teachers unions, the NEA and the AFT, which is basically an army of foot soldiers for the Democrat Party, with some exceptions, obviously. Radicalized. And are bringing this propaganda into our classrooms. And are now fighting with parents and identifying parents who should be. Threatened. And marginalized. So they’ve been politically militarized now our teachers and our teachers unions against the parents, the students and the community. And now Joe Biden. Signs an executive order to create a commission. A commission to essentially study packing the Supreme Court. He wants to get rid of the filibuster rule so far with one man, Manchin, who’s standing in the way, I don’t know how strong he is. He’s been very weak. One man, but what happens in the next election if they have 52 senators? The Democrats did nothing stop them. I would just sit on the edge of our chairs after every single election and wonder if we’re going to lose our freedom and our country. Is that the way this republic is supposed to function? That we’re always one election away from totalitarianism. There were always one election away. From destroying separation of powers. That we’re always one election away from open borders, that we’re always one election away from massively confiscatory taxes. One election away, is that what the Constitution says now? It’s not. We have been betrayed. By successive supreme courts and lower courts. We’ve been betrayed. We’ve been trained by the media, which is specifically protected under the First Amendment. But chooses not to protect the First Amendment, the Bill of Rights or the rest of the Constitution, it has in fact thrown in with the mob and thrown in with the autocrat. We have been betrayed. By a Democrat party. That seeks to populate and control all the elected branches of government, all the appointed branches of government. But when the framers put together this construct of separation of powers, they could never have dreamed that there would be a political party, because keep in mind, there were no political parties. They could never have dreamed there would be a political party. That would use whatever branch of government it controls. To destroy the constitutional construct in order to create a centralized autocracy. So rather than have branches of government jealously protecting their own powers. We now have branches of government that are controlled by the Democrats that are aggressively colluding and conspiring against the rest of us. This latest act by Joe Biden to form a commission to study packing the Supreme Court. I want to ask the Republicans in the House of Representatives a question. I want to ask Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise a question. You’re in the minority. But ideas honestly do have consequences. What will it take? For the leadership in the House. And what will it take for the other Republicans in the House of Representatives? To tell the American people. That we have a president of the United States. Was violating our Constitution on multiple levels. That is utterly out of control, that is conducting himself. Like a monarch. And what will it take for those Republicans? For those Republicans. To draw up articles of impeachment. I’ll be right back.
Hour 1 Segment 4
Joe Biden is leaving a stain on the presidency far worse than Bill Clinton ever did, and impeachment isn’t reserved for Republican presidents. It’s the only option we have, and I do understand that the Republicans are in the minority, but at some point you need to stand up and be counted. And when you have a. Pyromaniac in the Oval Office. Who’s burning down our country and burning down our system, burning down our military, our law enforcement, burning down our borders? Burning down our courts. In other words, doing what was done this summer, but doing it from within with a jacket and tie on and with cue cards. The outcome is the same. We’re going to have a special life, liberty, and in this Sunday, 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time. We’re going to have Shelby Steele back. We need to hear his wisdom. And he’ll be back on the first half of the program. We’re going to talk about what Joe Biden is doing and what’s happening in that respect. And we’re going to have Charles Payne on the second half hour to walk us through what’s happening with the spending, the debt and the future to our economy. And I can’t tell you I’m going to open with the biggest blockbuster monologue you’ve probably ever heard. I don’t always open with monologues, but I opened with a monologue Sunday, that’s for sure. Hope to see you then. If he can’t watch it live, you can always DVR. I’ll be right back.
