About Mark Levinís Show Last Night . . .

Posted on 07/11/2013 12:21:54 PM PDT by Jacquerie

On Mark’s nationally syndicated show last night, he revealed the thrust of his soon-to-be launched Liberty Movement. He described once again how reform will not emerge from the men and women of the institutions responsible for the fast approaching demise of our society and republic.

If reform is to occur, it will only emerge from us, the sovereign people, the foundation of legitimate government. The vehicle for that reform will be the states, and the tool of reform is the constitutional amendment process of Article V.

He emphasized that neither of the two amendment processes of Article V provide for a constitutional convention to start over, to shake the etch-a-sketch clean. A state initiated convention would propose amendments and amendments only. IOW, Congress can and has proposed amendments, and the states can too, via the convention process. The states can call a convention to PROPOSE amendments, which, if agreed upon, are then sent to the states for three-fourths ratification, just as congressionally sourced amendments have been, from the first days of constitutional government. Says Mark, “This ladies and gentlemen, should extinguish the anxiety that the state convention process could hijack the constitution. It is impossible.”

As opposed to our colonial forebears, whose choices were either to live in tyranny or revolt, the Framers gave us a peaceful means by which to go over the heads of our oppressors. Our present situation is the reason they put it there. It is time to use it.

Mark has always emphasized bottom up conservatism. In that regard, his personal example should be an inspiration to us all. Since running and winning, at age 19 for a local school board seat, to his Landmark Legal Foundation battles with the Left, Mark doesn’t wait for superman to save his country.

Next month, Mark will release The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic. I cannot, of course, say with certainty that he will ask each and every one of us to exercise our God given sovereignty and press our state assemblymen and senator to exercise their authority to halt our slide into despotism. However, given his life-long passion and efforts, his willingness to get down in the mud with despicable men, women and organizations bent on creating a utopian hell, I am confident we will be called to action.

What we must fight: One of the strengths of the Left is their top down organization. Obama can call up protests and other actions anywhere, anytime, as his taxpayer funded agencies, dependents, goons and union thugs dutifully respond to the outrage of the day. Throw in the indispensable “Jawohl! Mein Fuhrer” media, and the disorganized republicrats cringe and acquiesce.

So, knowing this and Mark’s past activism, perhaps I’m not going too far out a limb to wonder if he has not coordinated his full frontal assault with other talk show hosts, such as good friends Rush and Hannity. Would Palin be aboard? I think so. Jim DeMint of The Heritage Foundation? Others? Considering the forces arrayed against constitutional restoration, it would a waste of time for Mark to be the lone ranger in this quest.

For the naysayers, the freeper defeatists, the Walter Mitty minutemen, recall the twenty six or so states that opposed Obamacare; recall the six year and ongoing jihad by Eric Holder’s DOJ against state sovereignty regarding border security and voter integrity. The EPA is busy setting state industrial and environmental standards designed to cripple our economy. Bear in mind that power is a drug. A federal drug is one that our state reps could develop an addiction to. In addition to state concerns, why wouldn’t they lust for input regarding federal statutes, treaties and federal court nominees via the senators appointed by them?

There is a strong whiff of resistance in the air. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to assume the offense against the Left, rather than continued, seemingly eternal defense? While I don’t believe we should wait for superman, I think Mark Levin, like Patrick Henry in 1765, may provide the spark of resistance to escalating tyranny.

I’m ready to match the lefty dorks.

If they yell, we’ll yell louder.

Violence? Make our day.

And if they want, it’s CW-II.

And I get to run the guillotine following our win.

The time to be nice (and civilized) is over...long over.

These creeps don’t play fair, and we aren’t going to do so any more.

A major and very credible Conservative voice has given-up on fixing this through elections. THAT’S the story!

It is good to see this.

... given up on fixing this through elections.

Even if the elections were error-free, it appears the takers, the liberals, those that are fundamentally anti-American and those that vote Democrat/Socialist because it is in their "blood"...have us outnumbered.

What? Voting the lesser of 2 evils doesn't work?

Good point. It is central to his argument.

As corollary, as long as we have two popularly elected houses of congress, our despotic fate is sealed.

"Mark has always emphasized bottom up conservatism."

...so long as it is led from the top down by him.

As I said on the other thread on this subject - this effort will not remain a civil endeavor, nor should we expect the Ruling Class and it’s dependents to abide by any success in passage of new Amendments when they currently do not follow the current Amendments to the Constitution except when convenient.

The history of Marxists and Fascists in high office leaves no room for ambiguity - we need to understand and gird ourselves for the fact that such tyrants NEVER leave power without enacting and perpetrating violence, bloodshed and acts of abject subjugation and murder in order to hold onto their power.

They will charge us with terrorism, treason, rebellion, racism, homophobia and every other justification their kangaroo courts and lackeys will attempt to charge and enforce penalty upon us.

The good news is that Levin’s Liberty Documents may provide us a CAUSE to rally and unify behind rather than the balkanized factionalism the Conservative movement currently finds itself in.

If the cause is single purposed and we do not deviate from the goal and contests before us - it is possible that we might be able to hold onto what liberty we have left.

I find no instance in all world history where a people who lost their liberties, ever regained them in their lifetimes, except perhaps our Founders - who simply sought to restore the Sovereign that they determined was robbed from them.

If we want to keep our rights, we will have to fight for them and we must not delude ourselves into believing that such a contest will remain civil or merely fought in the arena of the courtroom.

Good afternoon. I thought I would ping Mark because of the discussion regarding his last show. I'm sure he would be interested...then again, maybe not.

A well-stated and cogent analysis.

This issue should also be used to start weeding out conservative media personalities that have been using us to just get rich and waste their influence for practically useless stunts.

This is something of substance to get behind with real results.

Thank you for the thread Jacquerie, and OWS, thought you might find this of interest.

May God guide and strengthen us.

Mark who?
So, knowing this and Mark’s past activism,
What activizm and where did that get us?
perhaps I’m not going too far out a limb to wonder if he has not coordinated his full frontal assault with other talk show hosts, such as good friends Rush and Hannity. Would Palin be aboard? I think so. Jim DeMint of The Heritage Foundation?
All of them PLUS FreeRepublic were around both times Obama was elected. They are all still around and yet things continue to get rapidly worse. The negativity towards Palin on this forum alone should tell you something about any members getting on board with another group with a pretty title.

I'm with Rush the Mayor of Realville.

I believe you will be proved correct.

I enjoyed Mark's Liberty and Tyranny, including his Conservative Manifesto at the end. The problem of course, was how to implement it, how to correct the corruption of our constitution.

It appears he has come up with a battle plan to take on the forces that are consciously destroying our society and republic.
