Mark Levin To Trump: “Build The Damn Wall”; “Screw The Art Of The Deal, Should Be Art Of The Victory”


On Tuesday's broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio program, Mark Levin told Trump it is time to "build the damn wall." Levin reminded Trump he has the House, the Senate, and the presidency as well as the bureaucracy. "Screw the art of the deal. It should be the art of victory," Levin advised Trump. "There is no excuse for what Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are doing or not doing," Levin said. "There's no excuse for the fact that the President doesn't yank them into the Oval Office and read the Riot Act," he added. LEVIN: The president's having a tough time with Congress, a Republican Congress. I want you to listen to me. There's no excuse for this; there's no excuse for it whatsoever. There is no excuse for what Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are doing or not doing. THere's no excuse for the fact that the president doesn't yank them into the Oval Office and read the Riot Act… We have a president who was elected to fund border security. It was also preposterous when he said that Mexico was going to do it. I told you that. And I don't care about that. Build the damn wall! You got the House. You got the Senate. You got the presidency. You got the bureaucracy. The art of the deal, screw the art of the deal. It should be the art of the victory. The art of victory. It's time to roll Schumer. It's time to roll the Democrats.

Mark Levin: New Info Shows Obama Lied About Iran Deal


Radio host Mark Levin reads from this story Monday in Politico by Josh Meyer titled: 'Obama's hidden Iran deal giveaway' calling it a "shocking story." Politico reports that the Obama administration lied about Iranians held by the U.S. and traded to the Islamic Republic for Americans. "Obama portrayed the seven men he freed as 'civilians.' The senior official described them as businessmen convicted of or awaiting trial for mere 'sanctions-related offenses, violations of the trade embargo.' In reality, some of them were accused by Obama's own Justice Department of posing threats to national security," according to Politico. "Obama freed these people. Sent them back to Iran. Any pending charges were dropped… and he lied. And his surrogates lied, and therefore the media lied, about who they were and the significance of this," Levin said. "Obama was in a frenzy to get this deal done, and he surrendered America's national security to do it." "Barack Obama has done more damage to America that Putin could do on his best day," he continued. "Barack Obama did more damage to our national security, the military, border security, police, than any foreign enemy or opponent could possibly achieve. This is a stunning story. It gags me to say to Politico: I tip my hat, for once."

"Let me show you how to play. I'm calling for Adam Schiff to recuse himself from the intelligence committee, given the fact that he was such an avid supporter of Hillary Clinton… and a coverup artists during the Benghazi investigation, given the fact that he has demonstrated his unwillingness to be non-partisan."

"I'm calling on Republicans to demand that Shciff recuse himself as ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee."

Mark Levin: Trump’s Comments On Health Care Were “Outstanding,” He Is Playing “Long Ball”


Radio host Mark Levin comments on President Trump's statement following the decision to pull Paul Ryan's Obamacare repeal plan. "I've been saying for a year and a half that the best thing we could do –politically speaking– is to let Obamacare explode," the president said Friday afternoon at the White House. "I think what will happen is Obamacare, will, unfortunately, explode. It is going to have a bad year." "I thought the president's comments today were actually outstanding," Levin said on his radio program Friday evening. "He said okay, we'll fight another day." "In essence he said that events will reach a point where this will have to be resolved," Levin said. "'Mark, that's not leadership!' [you might say] But it kind of is. I'm not making a comparison. It is the way that Dwight Eisenhower managed. When things reach a certain point, they'll be knocking on my door and we can move forward."

Mark Levin: Was Obama Using NSA Against Trump During 2016 Campaign?


Radio host Mark Levin spent most of his Thursday evening show discussing the alleged scandal surrounding Attorney General Jeff Sessions and what he says is the real scandal: A "silent coup" by the former Obama administration against President Trump. "They are not going to stop, I told you that the day after the election," Levin urged. About Sessions' decision to recuse himself from 2016 investigations he wondered: "Did Loretta Lynch or Eric Holder ever recuse themselves from anything? This is the game they play! It is so pathetic to watch these Republicans on Capitol Hill. Not even 24 hours and they're all over the TV telling Sessions to recuse himself. Recuse himself from what?" About Obama's efforts against Trump: "There's a much bigger scandal here: We have a prior administration. Barack Obama and his surrogates, who are supporting Hillary Clinton and her party, the Democratic Party. Who were using the… intelligence activities to surveil members of the Trump campaign, and to put that information out in the public. Those are police state tactics. Nothing Flynn or Sessions has done is even in the same category as that," Levin said. "The question is: Was Obama surveilling top Trump campaign officials during the election?" he asked. "We absolutely know this is true, the FBI did a preliminary criminal investigation based on a potential connection between a server in Trump Tower and a couple of Russian banks. That turned out to be a dry hole, but one of the most outrageous things I've ever seen… totally uncovered by the media. Instead of closing the investigation, the Obama administration tried to turn it into a FISA court investigation in June [2016]. Apparently the first application they submitted named Trump." "Even the FISA court said no. There wasn't enough evidence to make out probable cause involving Donald Trump," he said. "In the middle of the campaign the administration was actively having Trump investigated." Breitbart's Joel Pollack put together this timeline of the so-called "coup" launched by Obama against Trump: 1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied. 2. July: Russia joke. Wikileaks releases emails from the Democratic National Committee that show an effort to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from winning the presidential nomination. In a press conference, Donald Trump refers to Hillary Clinton's own missing emails, joking: "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.†That remark becomes the basis for accusations by Clinton and the media that Trump invited further hacking. 3. October: Podesta emails. In October, Wikileaks releases the emails of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, rolling out batches every day until the election, creating new mini-scandals. The Clinton campaign blames Trump and the Russians. 4. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services. 5. January 2017: Buzzfeed/CNN dossier. Buzzfeed releases, and CNN reports, a supposed intelligence "dossier†compiled by a foreign former spy. It purports to show continuous contact between Russia and the Trump campaign, and says that the Russians have compromising information about Trump. None of the allegations can be verified and some are proven false. Several media outlets claim that they had been aware of the dossier for months and that it had been circulating in Washington. 6. January: Obama expands NSA sharing. As Michael Walsh later notes, and as the New York Times reports, the outgoing Obama administration "expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government's 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.†The new powers, and reduced protections, could make it easier for intelligence on private citizens to be circulated improperly or leaked. 7. January: Times report. The New York Times reports, on the eve of Inauguration Day, that several agencies — the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Treasury Department are monitoring several associates of the Trump campaign suspected of Russian ties. Other news outlets also report the exisentence of "a multiagency working group to coordinate investigations across the government,†though it is unclear how they found out, since the investigations would have been secret and involved classified information. 8. February: Mike Flynn scandal. Reports emerge that the FBI intercepted a conversation in 2016 between future National Security Adviser Michael Flynn — then a private citizen — and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The intercept supposedly was part of routine spying on the ambassador, not monitoring of the Trump campaign. The FBI transcripts reportedly show the two discussing Obama's newly-imposed sanctions on Russia, though Flynn earlier denied discussing them. Sally Yates, whom Trump would later fire as acting Attorney General for insubordination, is involved in the investigation. In the end, Flynn resigns over having misled Vice President Mike Pence (perhaps inadvertently) about the content of the conversation. 9. February: Times claims extensive Russian contacts. The New York Times cites "four current and former American officials†in reporting that the Trump campaign had "repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials. The Trump campaign denies the claims — and the Times admits that there is "no evidence†of coordination between the campaign and the Russians. The White House and some congressional Republicans begin to raise questions about illegal intelligence leaks. 10. March: the Washington Post targets Jeff Sessions. The Washington Post reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had contact twice with the Russian ambassador during the campaign — once at a Heritage Foundation event and once at a meeting in Sessions's Senate office. The Post suggests that the two meetings contradict Sessions's testimony at his confirmation hearings that he had no contacts with the Russians, though in context (not presented by the Post) it was clear he meant in his capacity as a campaign surrogate, and that he was responding to claims in the "dossier†of ongoing contacts. The New York Times, in covering the story, adds that the Obama White House "rushed to preserve†intelligence related to alleged Russian links with the Trump campaign. By "preserve†it really means "disseminateâ€: officials spread evidence throughout other government agencies "to leave a clear trail of intelligence for government investigators†and perhaps the media as well.
