WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 23: TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew takes questions from Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) before the House Energy and Commerce Committee in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill on March 23, 2023 in Washington, DC. The hearing was a rare opportunity for lawmakers to question the leader of the short-form social media video app about the company's relationship with its Chinese owner, ByteDance, and how they handle users' sensitive personal data. Some local, state, and federal government agencies have been banning the use of TikTok by employees, citing concerns about national security. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)

On Thursday’s Mark Levin Show, the Communist Chinese regime headed by Xi Jinping is monstrous and still persecuting Uyghurs, but you won’t hear about it in the Democrat media. Xi is also responsible for the death of tens of thousands of Americans from fentanyl manufactured in China and smuggled through Mexican drug cartels through our southern border. Now we have TikTok allowing China to track our children; China has already declared war on the United States, and Joe Biden is bought and paid for by the Chinese. Also, it couldn’t be clearer that there are different rules of law in this country for Democrats, as shown in the lack of prosecution of Hunter Biden for lying on a gun permit. Hunter Biden is on video, email, and text proving him guilty, and should be facing years in prison, but they refuse to bring a case against him because they would rather go after parents and pro-life protesters. We are in a soft tyranny, from the way the language is being used to manipulate us to the way big social platforms are used to shut down debate. Then, Ron DeSantis is great governor of Florida, and his state is an example of conservatism and freedom working in the face of federal tyranny. DeSantis and Donald Trump are the most conservative options we have for 2024, but we will lose if the conservative base keeps fighting itself. We can’t afford to suffer under another term of Democrat Marxism and the Biden Administration. Later, it’s now looking like the Manhattan Trump case is dead no matter what Alvin Bragg does, so the media is shifting focus entirely to the Georgia Trump case. Democrats used the Covid pandemic to create new election laws and applied them in ways the constitution rejects, all for the sake of taking down Trump in 2020. Democrats have protested past elections and claimed fraud, but they are acting like Trump is the first to challenge the legitimacy of an election.

Rough transcript of Hour 1

Hour 1 Segment 1

I will have a monumental announcement on Monday, maybe Tuesday. Monday, maybe Tuesday. You folks in and out of the New York metropolitan area. You keep listening all over the country. Keep listening. But it’ll be a big announcement. And we’ve been on the air over 20 years. Same time, same place. And so we will have a monumental announcement that I say will have a monumental announcement Monday or Tuesday. All right. Let me ask you a question. Or better yet, let me start it this way. All the hearings today you’re seeing on TV, you’re hearing on radio. Tick tock in the rest and we’ll get to that. I thought the most remarkable. One minute and 10 seconds was between Rob Wilcox and ATF official and Representative Tom Tiffany, the Republican. From Wisconsin. And I want you to listen to this because this kind of says it all. Cut nine, Go. If a person lies on form 44, 73 and a user and is a user of unlawful drugs, you can get between 5 to 10 years for that. Is that correct? Is that my understanding? No, I. I believe Congress changed the sentence last Congress. What is that sentence now? Up to 15. Up to 15 years. Why hasn’t Hunter Biden been prosecuted for the crime that he committed? I’m not aware of the facts of that case and can’t comment on it. Okay. Who do we talk to to see why this case is not being prosecuted? I mean, he said very clearly in his book that he used drugs. He had a gun. A gun. At least a point of order, Mr. Chairman. So you were totally irrelevant and germane to this. He’s got his. He’s got his 5 minutes. Go ahead. Continue on. Okay. So I understand why you do not want Mr. Wilcox to answer that question. It is very clear why you don’t want. Because there’s a dual system of justice in America. That’s what’s going on right now. And everybody’s talking about it across America. There’s two standards of justice that are that are going on and amazes me that this Democrat interrupts like this. Point of order. When I’m sure there are men and women, young people in his district, as there are in every district. Who’ve been prosecuted for that offense, for lying on their forms to get weapons, even though they have drug use and drug sales in their backgrounds. A lot of guns get in the hands of killers. Tell out of guns. Get in the hands of gang members if they’re not flat out stolen or gotten on the black market and that sort of thing. And so there he is. The guy’s throwing himself in front of a bus to try and protect Biden. We don’t have people like this. We just don’t. And sometimes that’s a good thing and sometimes that’s a bad thing. But the point is very important. So here you have a top official at the ATF, Treasury Department responsible. For tracking and overseeing the purchase of weapons, particularly illegal weapons. And he doesn’t have enough facts in the Hunter Biden case. Now, ladies and gentlemen, you could be sitting on the subway, on a train, on a bus. You could be a passenger in a car going in to work in the morning. Or maybe you’re in rush hour right now and you have the facts in the Hunter Biden case, or at least enough of the facts to know how to answer. And the answer is, why aren’t we prosecuting it? Because he’s Joe Biden’s son. That’s why. Weren’t we throwing the book, Adam? Why don’t we have a special counsel? Because he’s Joe Biden’s son, that’s why. Now, the truth is that this administration is not prosecuting gun crimes as it should. Local DA’s are not prosecuting gun crimes, as they should in the inner cities and Democrat metropolitan areas. So crime has gone through the roof. Can have gun control, quote unquote, if you don’t have criminal control and if you don’t use the laws that are available at the local, state and federal level to prosecute hoodlums. This is the problem, and that’s why I led with this. It couldn’t be more clear. I mean, Mr. Tiffany, Congressman Tiffany laid it out as easy as it could be. Form four, four, seven three. You’ve got Hunter Biden on video, his own words, contemporaneous emails, texts, the whole kit and caboodle. You’ve got a slam dunk case. Even brag. Even brag. Wouldn’t know how to bring that case. But they don’t bring a case because they don’t want to bring a case. They’d rather chase. Parents had school board meetings. They’d rather chase pro-lifers. They have 1000 more people to arrest and charge you, the prosecutor, to get plea agreements. From January six, 1,000% more resources focused on one incident than any time in the history of the Department of Justice. Think about that. Really quite unbelievable. They’re focusing the resources, America. There are four Democratic controlled grand juries investigating Donald Trump. God knows how many federal prosecutors. State prosecutors. Local prosecutors. La Lone investigators and FBI agents. But Hunter Biden, he he’s busy painting now. They’re confusing his paintings, Mr. Producer, with Picasso’s paintings, which is understandable, don’t you think? And by the way, as a footnote, I wouldn’t give you five bucks for a Picasso, would you, Jim? I look at these things and I say, What the hell’s going on here? But anyway, what do I know? So I wanted to mention that now. The communist Chinese regime headed by this guy Ji is monstrous. He is a communist dictator. He’s a genocidal maniac. They’re still slaughtering the wiggers. And isn’t it funny? You don’t hear much about that from MSR City or the Constipated News Network. You don’t hear much about that from liberal Democrat hosts on TV or radio. You don’t read much about that in The New York Times or The Washington Post? No. It’s people like me who keep bringing up how the Weavers are being slaughtered. These are Muslims that the minority. In communist China, as are all faiths. By the way. But you don’t hear it. It’s an amazing thing. And let us be abundantly clear JI is responsible for the death of tens of thousands of Americans. He controls Communist China. There’s nobody else. With fentanyl. Fennel. They send the ingredients. They sent the ingredients to the. To the Mexican cartels who then make them and send them over into our country. It’d be hard enough of the border was secure, but the border is wide open. So it’s really the communist Chinese, the Mexican cartels and Joe Biden. And then we have this these Confucianism, Confucius Institutes. Better spreading communist Chinese Maoist communism in our universities and colleges because our universities and colleges are pigs. They can’t get enough money. And then we have tick tock. Those of you who have your kids, you let them go on. Tick tock. I hope you understand that a fire has been opened up on each and every one of them. In communist China and everything your kid does, they know and they keep it on a computer file. When they get older, things they want to do and so forth and so on, they’ll have the data. So communist China has already declared war on the United States. It’s already killing American citizens. It’s already tracking American citizens. It’s already indoctrinating American citizens. And they’re aimed at young people. The younger, the better. She’s at war with us. And today the secretary of defense. And the head of the Joint Chiefs willy nilly. They testified today that they are proposing the biggest defense budget in American history. And I’m sure the Putin boys and their hemorrhoids are in agreement with them. Ladies and gentlemen, that’s not how you measure spending. Because then every budget is the biggest in American history. Every school budget is the biggest in their history. And on and on and on. It’s a 3% increase where the Department of Education is getting a 13% increase in the Environmental Protection Agency’s getting a 19% increase. It is one of the smallest increases of any item on the federal budget national security. And yet that’s the number one job of the federal government. As the communist Chinese continue to expand the size of their navy, ours will continue to shrink under this budget. When you have inflation raging. Raging. And you’re only increasing your defense budget by 3%. You’re cutting your defence budget, it says. If the Communist Chinese themselves. Have proposed the amount of money we will spend on defense versus what they’re spending. As a percentage of their GDP in income. You better believe Joe Biden is bought and paid for by the communist Chinese. He’s watching what we’re watching and he knows even much more from our intelligence agencies, among others, about what the communist Chinese are doing and what they’re up to each and every day. He saw what we saw. That she and Putin, they shared a wet kiss. They sure as hell did. He sees this new axis of evil. Which we’ve been talking about for years here. What? China and Russia. And the Islamo Nazi regime in Tehran and the inbred regime in North Korea. He sees it. They are massively expanding, not just defense spending. But their presence throughout the world. And they also are co-opting sort of weak allies, the Saudi Arabians and stuff like that. Countries like that, they’re co-opting them and they’re buying their way into Central and South America. They’re buying their way into Africa. They’ve bought their way into the Middle East. They’ve muscled their way into the South China Sea. They’ve muscled their way onto islands in the Philippines, claiming islands off Japan, claiming the territorial waters and airspace of a Vietnam threatening Australia. Oh, yeah. 3% increase in defense. Don’t tell me the Bidens aren’t paid off and it has real consequences. Now we’re going to circle back to this tick tock, because many of you have kids that are using tic tac. Well, your kids are being tracked. Information on your kids is being collected forever. And I want to talk to you about this as soon as we return. I’ll be right back.

Hour 1 Segment 2

You know, most people ask me, Mark, Mark, who do you support for president? I’m asked this endlessly and we don’t take any calls on this. It would be very monotonous. I’m going to support the candidate who can save our country. I’m going to support the candidate who can prevent our national suicide from continuing. And to support the candidate who understands the enemy, foreign and domestic. And has the guts to confront the. I’m going to support the candidate who takes the battle. To these various American Marxist forces who are destroying the nation for more than. And I’m going to use whatever power I have on every platform I have. They’re trying to stave off. What would be a disastrous and bleak future for this country. My eyes are wide open. I said the other day, I think it was on Fox and Friends Sunday when I was asked. In response to a question that I can remember right now, that we are in a soft tyranny and we are. That is a phrase. That was. Written by Alexis de Tocqueville. And democracy in America. And we are in a soft tyranny. There’s simply no question about it. Some of you haven’t felt it yet, or some of you don’t recognize that you’re dealing with it. Many of you do. The way the language is being used to manipulate us. Totalitarian regimes do that. The way that big social platforms are being used by government and the radical left to shut down debate. The new ideas and thinking totalitarian regimes do that. There’s constant talk about. Killing off disinformation and misinformation. From whose perspective? The state again. That’s evidence of totalitarianism. What’s going on after January 6th. The hunting down of people like their animals. Sending in. Over armed militarized SWAT teams to arrest them. That’s what happens in totalitarianism. Going after pro-lifers and parents totalitarianism. Attacking the greatest Constitution man has ever devised more totalitarianism, destroying law enforcement, empowering central law enforcement. Yes, it’s a soft tyranny. I’ll be right back.

Hour 1 Segment 3

All right, ladies and gentlemen, the CEO of Tick Tock Shall Chew was at a hearing today, Republicans and Democrats. I do notice the Marxists, actually the Trotskyites within the Marxist Party in our country, the Democrat Party, the Trotskyites think they questioning this communist front company is racist. But of course they would. I think they know three words and one of them is racist. And of course, the fact that they themselves are racists. Rarely goes without notice, but it ought not. Hsiao Chiu is the CEO of Tik-tok. He’s a rich man. Shouldn’t he be attacked for being rich? Apparently not. At a hearing today, and he’s asked by a fantastic congresswoman, Debbie Lesko, May I say woman? I think I did. Let’s go to cut one. Go. Mr. Chu, do you agree that the Chinese government has persecuted the weaker population? Congresswoman, you will. If you use our app and you open it, you will find our users will get all sorts of that. My question my question is, do you agree that the Chinese government has persecuted the weaker population? Well, it’s really because learning to hear about all accounts of human rights abuse. My role here is to explain why the platform does understand. It’s a pretty easy question. Do you agree that the Chinese government has persecuted the weaker population? Congresswoman, I’m here to describe, but to talk and what we do as a platform and as a platform, we allow our users to freely express rights on this issue or any other that matters to them. Well, you didn’t answer the question and he can’t. Because he’s a lapdog for the regime in China. If he goes home, they’ll disappear him, a.k.a. kill him. Here’s Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Republican of Washington State. I believe she’s the chairwoman. You know, I never used to use that word. I always said, Chairman, that because they tell us we really can’t say woman because they can’t describe it. That is, Democrats are use it. And now she’s questioning the CEO as well. Cut to go. Have any moderation tools been used to remove content on tik-tok associated with the wigger genocide? Yes or no? We do not remove that kind of content. Tik Tok is a place of freedom of expression and terror. Just like I say, if you use our app, you can go on it and you will see a lot of users around the world expressing content on that topic and many others. Thank you. What about the massacre in Tiananmen Square? Yes or no? I’m sorry. I didn’t hear the question. The massacre in Tiananmen Square, that kind of content is available on our platform. You can go and search it. I will remind you that making false or misleading statements to Congress is a federal crime. I understand. Again, you can go on the platform. You will find their content. Okay. Thank you. Reclaiming my time. Can you say with 100% certainty that by Dancer, the CCP cannot use your company or its divisions to be content to promote pro CCP messages for an act of aggression against Taiwan? We do not promote or remove content at the request of the Chinese government. We will repeat The question is are you 100% certain that they cannot use your company to promote such messages? It is our commitment to this committee and all our users that we will keep this free from any manipulation by any government. If you can’t say 100% certain, I take that as a no. Chao Chu at the hearing today. Questioned by Tim Walberg, Republican Michigan at three Go do bite Dance employees in Beijing have access to American data. Congressman, we have been very open about this. We have relied on global interoperability. You have access to American data. Congressman, I’m answering your question. If you give me just a bit of time. We rely on global interoperability and we have employees in China. So, yes, the Chinese engineers do have access to global data. Have access to global data. Hmm. Representative Anna Eshoo, who is a left wing Democrat representing a big chunk of Silicon Valley. Cut, Forego. You’re sidestepping or I haven’t read anything in terms of tick tock, how you can actually say and you spoke in your opening statement about a firewall relative to the data. But the Chinese government has that data. Well, how can you promise that that that will move into into the United States of America and be protected here? Congresswoman, I have seen no evidence that the Chinese government has access to that data. They have never asked us. We have not provided. Well, you know what have asked that I find that actually preposterous. I have looked and I have seen no evidence of this happening. Hmm. She’s a liar. He is the tool of the communist regime in China. That’s why both parties. Except for the Trotskyites and the Democrat Party. Maybe I should call them Maoist, but they are Trotskyite. Are pounding away. But here’s one of the Trotsky, Jamaal Bowman. He’s new to Congress. This guy was like an assistant principal in New York City. So that tells you how great the school system is. This is all a red scare. What’s with the red Scare here? Cat five, gulp. Why the hysteria and the panic and the targeting of tick tock? Because they’re the enemy, you idiot. That’s why. Because they killing our children, you idiot, with fentanyl because they are gathering data on little kids, you moron. Because they’re building nuclear missiles to blow us off the face of the earth, you jerk. That’s why. Have I helped edify you? Now. Go ahead. Republicans in particular have been sounding the alarm, creating a red scare around China, a red scare around China. So yesterday Putin and JI are exchanging wet kisses and I guess. Jamaal Bowman. Missed it. Or maybe he thought it was great. These are people who hate this country. Absolutely despise our country. That’s who they are. On the Trotsky wing. Of the American Marxist Party. That’s who they are. They hate us with a passion. Go ahead. They’ve been doing it in a variety of ways when it comes to economic competition. When it comes to semiconductor manufacturing and when it comes to technology. So, hey, pow! POW. They’ve been stealing our technology. You’ve got a problem with that. You had a problem with that. You jerk. They’ve been stealing our technology. They’ve been killing our children. You have a problem with that? You have a problem with their colonialism and their imperialism when it comes to Hong Kong. You have a problem with that. You got a problem of what they’re doing in the South China Sea and all their neighbors. No, no, no. They have 27. I’ll call them bases, as I’ve told you before in Central and South America. Why? What do they want? They control both sides of the Panama Canal. What do they want? What did he just say yesterday? It’s the beginning of a new 100 year. Relationship or whatever the hell it was. Sky’s deaf, dumb and blind. May I say, with all due respect, go ahead. It’s. And it’s risk to national security. Poses a word about national security. Just not ours. You see. Skye was an assistant principal and believe that I believe it. Who is a dues paying member of the. Go ahead. Same threat that companies like Facebook and Instagram and YouTube and Twitter pose. You see, this guy loves. This guy loves. Censorship. Now look at what China is doing to the Wiggers. Not a word. Look at what China’s doing to the Christians. Not a word. Look what China’s done to the Tibetans. Not a word. Look what China’s done to Hong Kong. Not a word. Look at what China’s done to millions and millions of people. Nothing. Nothing. America’s the bad. How? What kind of a brain functions this way? Seriously, what kind of a mind that you have to have to think this way. You got to be in one hell of a safe district to burp up this crap. Go ahead. Marginalize and target. Tick tock. Mm hmm. Marginalize and target. Tick tock. He defends communist China’s horrific propaganda machine that’s focused on your kids. Then the word about not nothing. The Trotskyites have spoken. It’s just and these are Democrats. Let’s not make any mistake here. They run as, Oh, they’re Democratic socialists. No, they’re not. They’re Marxists. They don’t use that word. And we have to use that word. Something democratic about Jamal. Whatever. His name is Jamaal Bowman. What’s Democratic about Jamaal Bowman endorsing the the largest communist regime on the face of the earth? What’s democratic about that? And of course, he’s not alone. You got the other Stooges there, too. And this is the Democrat Party. They’re never required to answer for any of their members ever. Ever. Amazing thing to me. And in fact, these people are propped up. AOC, AOC. Has the intelligence. Of a 25 watt light bulb. That’s it. She’s a moron. She’s learned how to regurgitate phrases. She does little videos of how to cook spaghetti. If you don’t know how to cook spaghetti. You shouldn’t be allowed to drive. I’m just being honest. It’s like when you get on a plane and they say, basically this is how you use a seatbelt. I’m so said. If you don’t have to use seatbelt, what the hell are you doing on the plane? Obviously, you figured out how to get here to get through the TSA. You know, they get a ticket. You figured out how to get to the gate. Had to put your ass in the chair, and now they’re going to teach you how to use a seat belt. Whoa, whoa, whoa. What’s going on here? And it’s like this. I’ll be right back.

Hour 1 Segment 4

Tick tock while the clock is ticking, ladies and gentlemen, in many areas of the world. But it’s all ticking for us. Tick tock. Let me tell you, I’m not sure what’s more threatening to America. You ready for this? One of these foreign regimes of the regime in the White House. I’m really not sure which is more dangerous to the country. Let me give you an example. Today, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley. Milk toast. Molly. He told the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee. And the rest of the world and I quote, Iran could produce files on material for a nuclear weapon in less than two weeks, and it would take only several months more. To produce an actual nuclear weapon. But the United States remains committed as a matter of policy, that Iran will not have a fielded nuclear weapon. And we, the United States military, have developed multiple options for our national leadership to consider it if or when Orion ever decides to develop an actual nuclear weapon. Did you notice, Mr. Producer, the change in position there? First of all. The position of the United States has been Iran will never have a nuclear weapon. What Mel said there is. Iran, I quote, will not have a fielded nuclear weapon. By that time, the Biden administration is over. And God willing, one term and one term is it? The Islamo Nazi regime in Tehran, which continues to threaten us. We have a fielded intercontinental ballistic missile with a nuclear warhead. They already know how to do the intercontinental missile part. And now they’re going to know how to do the nuclear part. And then what are we going to do? What are we going to do? And Milea said that the prior administration had the same position. No, it didn’t. He’s a liar. He’s a liar. So the Biden administration is going to allow the Iranian regime to be armed. Communist Chinese are going to look at this. Every enemy we have is going to look at this and this gets no attention anywhere. They headlines all over television. All the back benchers. Say nothing. Not a word. And this will affect your lives. When you have fundamentalists like this. I believe that death is preferable to life. With nukes. Well, then. You have very few options. So General Milley needs to be fired. First of all, he needs to be fired. How many more people have to die? How many more people have to be enslaved overseas? How many more policies have to be imposed on our military? Recruitment is is in the toilet. The military budget is in the toilet. And this guy, he’s overseeing the whole damn thing. The whole damn thing. So let let me be clear here, because you haven’t heard this all day long and you’re not going to hear it. The head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Millie. Said. The goal now is to deny Iran. Not a nuclear weapon to deny Iran. The capacity to have a fielded nuclear weapon. It’s one thing if they have a nuclear weapon, as long as they don’t put it in the field. Well, why do you think they’re part of building it for ladies and gentlemen, to admire it? It’s run rose petals on it. Unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable. We have a ton more, as MacArthur said, have only just begun. Be right back.
