Mark Levin: The Constitutionís Churchill
The American Spectator ^ | June 11, 2013 | Jeffrey Lord

Posted on 06/12/2013 6:42:00 AM PDT by don-o

“Do they even understand the founding of this nation?…Look at the Constitution!”

So begins another Mark Levin radio show in which the third most popular talk show host in the land ( behind Rush and Hannity) does his distinctly unique brand of radio, a brand that is focused on educating Americans about the nation’s founding document: The Constitution of the United States. A brand that includes a lengthening series of bestselling books discussing a subject that many once considered arcane at best if not embarrassingly irrelevant.

Mark Levin has become the Constitution’s Churchill.

Churchill, recall, the man who for years in the 1930s stood almost alone in his warnings of the dangers in appeasing Nazi aggression. Dismissed contemptuously by what biographer William Manchester called the British “social and political establishment” of the day, Churchill was the man nobody in England took seriously for years — until his predictions of disaster came all too vividly true with Nazi bombs eventually raining down on London itself.

Mark Levin is a man everyone should be listening to. His website includes archives that go back to 2011. They are free to access and share with others. They provide an education that most Americans do not get in public schools or private Universities. He truly is the constitution's Churchill as the history of his commentaries proves.

If you are not downloading Levin’s FREE podcasts, then you are missing the most important conservative voice in the nation today. I stopped my subscription to Rush 24/7 because I wasn’t LEARNING anything. Hannity just repeats, repeats, repeats...boring. With Levin, it is like being in a classroom, and you will learn something from every session.

I like Churchill, but I have never understood how he mobilized for war to free Poland in 1939 but acquiesced when Poland was made another totalitarian state in 1945.

personal observation - I learned about not only the Founding but also the genius of the separation of powers and the enumerated powers in SEVENTH grade Civics.

This was in small town East Tennessee in 1962. Later, I would learn more about all the influences and history and the remarkable men. But, that half year course formed the matrix to fit all of that in and also how to decide which side politicians were on.

He was booted out of office by an ungrateful British electorate before Poland was sold out by FDR and Clement Atlee.

Wasn’t that before Teachers Unions? I was a “63” HS grad and we were exposed to all of that stuff. Sad decline on info about this great Country.

It was that. Furthermore, all our teachers had lived through WW2. All had grown up in the community. All were upright and moral.

Thanks for the link. No receivable stations carry Levin.

You can listen to him live on line by finding websites for stations that do carry the show, then pick your best time for listening because many are at different schedules. I like the archives because there are no commercials. That let's me listen on the weekend.

I miss seeing Mark’s occasional, if infrequent, posts - the last one being two years ago. It’s said that he still scans FR, which I believe. But I wonder if he still logs in and reads his pings.

Mark Levin’s a national treasure.

Mark's copy of the Constitution does not contain Article II.

Seems he was writing a book about his dog while he was writing his book about the Constitution. Evidently, said dog ate said Article II.

Wondering what he thinks of The CCP? He has yet to recognize that it even exists.
