That career ladder climbing traitor to constitutional conservatism should have been removed ages ago.

Exclusive — Mark Levin: Boehner’s Retaliation Against Conservatives Means War, Time to Take Him Down


It’s time for conservatives to take out House Speaker John Boehner and all of his comrades in primaries, nationally syndicated radio host, New York Times bestselling author, and conservative movement thought leader Mark Levin argues in an exclusive comment to Breitbart News.

I watched the tribute video, I somewhat found it disturbing to see no one else standing up and take note (besides Diana West, author of American Betrayal) of what was THE most pressing issue for this great man, who was still busy sounding the clarion on these issues (that West alone raised in her speech) right up till the time of his death.

The ignoring of M.Stanton Evans‘ factual and extensive documentation of the subversion of the US government during the Roosevelt years by Stalin’s agents of influence (as well as Diana West’s book American Betrayal that continues the theme) can only lead to future subversions, as in the Muslim Brotherhood’s pedlars of influence on both the Bush, (and especially so) and that of the Obama administration(s). Stunning.

UKIP chief Nigel Farage insists, as he visits America and warns that ‘if the Republican Party sticks with the establishment it will LOSE’

'WE'RE NOT THE TEA PARTY': Nigel Farage, whose UK Independence Party is challenging both Tories and Liberals, said his is a real political force, not just an influence group trying to reform a wayward party

  • Farage spoke with Daily Mail Online after a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference
  • The UK Independence Party leader tried to buck up American right-wingers who see their tea party goals dissolving in a sea of centrist Republicanism
  • He insisted that UKIP is ‘not just retired half-colonels who’ve always voted Conservative … We’re dragging them from across the spectrum’
  • Bashed David Cameron for refusing to publicly identify ISIS executioner ‘Jihadi John,’ saying ‘we should have heard it weeks ago’
  • Complained about ‘politically correct’ groups like CAGE ‘saying and shouting things that if you and I did them, we’d find ourselves behind bars’
  • Farage addressed controversies involving Richard Crouch and Rozanne Duncan, admitting: ‘Yes, we get people who say stupid things in UKIP’ 

Nigel Farage warned Thursday night in America that the U.S. Republican party will become a dinosaur – not an elephant – if it continues to embrace the political center.

‘I suspect that if the Republican Party sticks with the establishment it will lose,’ he told Daily Mail Online after a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference.

The GOP ‘has got to reach the Hispanic community, but it’s also got to reach that blue-collar community that Reagan got to vote for him in huge numbers. I’m not sure at the moment that they’re positioning themselves to do that.’

CPAC is an annual three-day mecca for constitutional evangelists, anti-Obamacare shock troops, full-throated abortion opponents and gun rights activists. Many of them think the Republican Party is only slightly less liberal and nanny-statist than the president.

Farage fit right in, keeping backstage handlers waiting for his appointment to test a lapel microphone while he smoked a cigar in the cold, outside the Maryland resort hotel where more than a thousand stayed into the dinner hour to hear him.

‘I think the Republican Party is going through the same crisis of identity as the Conservative Party in Britain,’ he said in an interview backstage.

The British political contrarian, long at the helm of the UK Independence Party, plied the conservative audience with a dry-witted vision of how his political travails could show disaffected American right-wingers the way forward.

UKIP, he boasted, is ‘an insurgent political force that has taken on the political establishment and rocked them to the backs of their heels.’

But don’t confuse him with the tea party, he said after the applause ended.

‘We’re not the tea party,’ Farage insisted one-on-one. ‘Our job is not to influence one political party. We’re not an outlier from the Tories.’

And unlike the tea party phenomenon, which peels off disaffected Republicans who believe their traditional party has moved too far left, he said, his group ‘is not just retired half-colonels who’ve always voted Conservative and now they’re UKIP. We’re dragging them from across the spectrum.’

Farage’s rhetoric about immigration, Britain’s Judeo-Christian foundation, political correctness and regulation run amok made up a song he sang to a crowd that had already memorized the verses.

‘If you discuss immigration, it means you’re a bad person,’ he complained – ‘that you harbor dislike or hatred or prejudice of somebody else.’

Portrait Of Ronald Reagan

Conservatism is the antithesis of the kind of ideological fanaticism that has brought so much horror and destruction to the world. The common sense and common decency of ordinary men and women, working out their own lives in their own way — this is the heart of American conservatism today. Conservative wisdom and principles are derived from willingness to learn, not just from what is going on now, but from what has happened before.

The principles of conservatism are sound because they are based on what men and women have discovered through experience in not just one generation or a dozen, but in all the combined experience of mankind. When we conservatives say that we know something about political affairs, and that we know can be stated as principles, we are saying that the principles we hold dear are those that have been found, through experience, to be ultimately beneficial for individuals, for families, for communities and for nations — found through the often bitter testing of pain, or sacrifice and sorrow.

The New Republican Party. h/t. Mark Levin



He’s an easy choice of candidate.

The path clearly set before us is to elect conservatives, help Mcdaniel get to the senate to back up Cruz, Lee, Paul and others like them.


ELLISVILLE, Mississippi — With only three days until the polls open for the GOP Senate primary here and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin at his side, State Sen. Chris McDaniel vowed to fight President Barack Obama alongside Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rand Paul (R-KY) in front of a raucous audience of thousands.

Americans, McDaniel said, have fallen for a “great delusion”— that only government can solve all of the nation’s problems.

“It is not the place of government to solve your problems,” McDaniel said. “It is the place of strong, self-reliant, self-governing individuals to solve your own problems—your church from time to time and your community from time to time—but not that government a thousand miles away. And every time we surrender our liberty, that government grows and expands more. More of your money. More of your freedoms. And there’s a price we pay for that.”

Noting that he grew up “hanging out” in the auditorium holding the event, his father was a professor at Jones County Junior College, where the venue was, McDaniel recalled his introduction to politics.

“I became a Republican when I was 13 years old, not because I knew anything about policy or philosophy or law,” McDaniel. “But I knew there was this man—this actor from California. He would look directly at that TV and it felt like he was speaking to me. My father called me into the room and he said, ‘son, you’ve got to see this.’ We watched Ronald Reagan talk about things that intuitively made sense to me. He talked about liberty. He talked about limited government. He talked about constitutionalism. He talked about balanced budgets. He talked about traditional family values.”

Reagan, McDaniel added, painted politics in “bold colors, not pastels” and led “a party of principle, not surrender. Then it donned on me: I must be a Republican.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, your constitution is not subject to compromise. I’ve got 17.5 trillion reasons to never again compromise on the debt. We stand here fighting what I consider to be the worst president in our country’s history. In this environment, where our conservative values are being attacked, where our conservative beliefs are being attacked, where our Constitution is being attacked, silence is complicity,” McDaniel added.

McDaniel began a call-and-answer section of the speech that envigorated the crowd.

“Conservatives look at me for a moment, Republicans look at me for a moment: Name one fight that Sen. Thad Cochran has led against Barack Obama,” McDaniel said.

“Zero!” the crowd shouted, almost in unison. “None!” a woman near the front of the auditorium yelled.

Truth teller.

“These people,” Levin said,”are not about empowering the American people, they’re about empowering themselves. They see a majority in the House and a majority in the Senate, not as an opportunity to serve the people but to serve themselves.”


After the Republican establishment gloated on Tuesday for surviving primary challenges against underfunded Tea Party challengers, conservative talk radio host Mark Levin ripped into the Republican leadership for preferring candidates they can coerce to support policies their conservative constituents oppose.

Levin said the question of whether the Tea Party is dead is a stupid one, and he asked why establishment Republicans were spending “millions of dollars laundered through Karl Rove’s group and Mitch McConnell’s National Republican Senatorial Committee” to fight and trash conservatives:

These “Republican leaders” only want to be in the majority if they can control the people we send to Congress. Mitch McConnell does not want any more Ted Cruzes or Mike Lees, or anybody else who’s going to give him trouble. He wants Republicans who are going to lie down and do what he tells them to do.

John Boehner and Eric Cantor? Exactly the same thing. These people are not about empowering the American people; they’re about empowering themselves. They see a majority in the House and a majority in the Senate, not as an opportunity to serve the people, but to serve themselves.

Levin also noted that establishment candidates often do not want their constituents to know of their more-liberal policy preferences; thus, they do not run television commercials informing their constituents of their enthusiastic support for amnesty legislation.

Have you seen their ads for amnesty?” Levin asked. 

He said the same goes for their desire to spend more taxpayer dollars to fund projects for their cronies. 

“Have you seen any ads for more borrowing?” he asked. 

Levin said when it’s time to govern, Republican establishment politicians “jettison” their positions and promises made on the campaign trail.

He also blasted those in the chattering class who were once liberals, hated and did not support Ronald Reagan, and who mock constitutional conservatives, just like the liberal hippies and poets they are, choosing to work with Republican establishment operatives to trash conservatives. 

Levin reminded his audience that in 2006, “George W. Bush and his right-hand political hack Karl Rove lost the House of Representatives and the United States Senate.”

He said nothing good was happening within the Republican party until 2010 when the people “rose up through the grassroots” after they had enough of George W. Bush’s policies and the direction Obama was taking the nation after the election.

Actor Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. passed away today of natural causes. He was 95.


Zimbalist was also one of Hollywood’s most prominent conservatives. He campaigned on behalf of Barry Goldwater during the 1964 presidential election. Zimbalist was also a friend of Ronald Reagan. After Reagan completed his second term as Governor of California, it was Zimbalist who persuaded him to try his hand at radio commentary. These commentaries helped keep Reagan in the public eye and, in the days before talk radio, provided the conservative movement with daily food for thought. In 1982, President Reagan appointed Zimbalist to the Board of Trustees for the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. Zimbalist was also a devout Christian and made many appearances reading Scripture on the Trinity Broadcasting Network.

In 2003, Zimbalist released his autobiography My Dinner of Herbs and here is an excerpt of an interview he conducted promoting the book.

You can’t just complain about the news and direction of the country, you have to make the case to the American people that there is another way, constitutional republicanism, or as Mark Levin like to say, embracing the constitution in order to save the constitution.

There is an answer, there is a way forward out of the mess, and the answer is you, your family and neighbors, your colleagues at work and anyone else that you can influence.

When the political situation becomes that desperate, people will look for answers, and a few good people within the conservative movement have them, they have something to point to that the Left doesn’t, a return to constitutionalism.


by MATTHEW BOYLE 9 Nov 2013, 5:07 PM PDT 

In a speech Saturday evening to the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition at the group’s 13th annual fall banquet in Des Moines, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) argued that now is the time for the Tea Party movement to take its next steps, take control of American government, and frame America’s future with a focus on conservative and liberty-minded principles.

Lee compared the movement’s next stages to those of the American revolution, noting how the earliest stages of revolution began in Boston with the Boston Tea Party, where a band of protesters dumped British tea in the Boston Harbor as a sign of disapproval of the high taxes the British had levied on them. That eventually turned into the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia after Americans fought and won their independence from the British.

“In order to chart our course forward, join me on a journey back,” Lee said in the speech, according to an advance copy provided to Breitbart News. “Back to a time when the people of this continent were just as frustrated with their oppressive government as all of us here tonight are with the Federal government today.”

Lee noted that in 1773, “a group of Americans had had it with the King George establishment which was too big, too expensive and too intrusive in their lives.”

“What would become known as the Boston Tea Party became a clarion cry against the kind of government the colonists did not want,” Lee said. “It turned out to be a pretty important party and a very big deal. But had they stopped at just protesting against the kind of government they didn’t want the Boston Tea Party would not have been even a footnote in history. It would have been just one more vain protest against an oppressive federal establishment.”

Karl Rove seen busily scribbling on his whiteboard.


This is the reason why the Republican RNC hasn’t supported Attorney General Ken Cuccinnelli with either words or funding, they want a certain Chris Christie win in New Jersey to be weighed against a Cuccinelli loss, to show that conservatives can no longer win in a ‘changed’ America.

Keep in mind that in spite of McAuliffe’s massive war chest, over 30 million dollars worth, outspending Cuccinelli in media spending 10 to 1, as well as the support from key democrat officials, including both Obama and Biden, Cuccinelli has brought himself within a few points from McAuliffe. It’s that tight of a race, and with no help from his own party who are shooting spitballs at him.

Levin asks in his broadcast last night, ”why is it that Democrats are pouring money, time and effort into the Virginia race, and not into the gubatorial race in New Jersey?” It’s because that, in spite of all of the bombast, they have nothing to fear from a governor Chris Christie, he has signed on to just about everything they want him to sign on to. Democrats love establishment republicans, and loathe the conservatives just as much as the RINO’s do.


by MARK LEVIN 4 Nov 2013, 8:46 AM PDT

Many in the GOP establishment, from major fundraisers and consultants, to GOP officeholders such as the GOP Lt. Gov and mayor of Virginia Beach, have either trashed Attorney General Ken Cuccinnelli or endorsed McAuliffe outright. The GOP national machine has done next to nothing for Cuccinnelli. And GOP bag man, Karl Rove, is all over Fox without a word of support for Cuccinnelli, while he schemes and whispers behind the scenes against conservatives nationwide.

Having tried to sabotage Cuccinnelli’s candidacy from the start, these GOP actors are hoping for a Cuccinnelli loss and a big Chris Christie win (built on a Huey Long style of politics) to make the case that only big government Republicans can win and limited government, constitutional conservatives, such as Tea Party activists, are too extreme to prevail. They’ve already written the script.

In fact, the GOP establishment’s attacks on the Tea Party, which is an obvious assault on conservatives and conservatism generally, are increasingly difficult to distinguish from Obama and the Left’s attacks on the same folks. The ruling class in Washington is clearly united in one respect: to wipe out conservative resistance to their corruption, cronyism, and nation-killing policies.

A Tea Party conservative.

NEWSBUSTERS: In an interview with former Vice President Dick Cheney on Monday’s NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie proclaimed a “civil war” in the Republican Party and persistently urged him to blame it on the Tea Party. Instead, Cheney began the exchange by explaining: “I think the most radical operator in Washington today is the President. I think he’s trying to take the country in a direction that is fundamentally different than anything we’ve seen before.” [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

Guthrie was undeterred and continued to stoke GOP division: “And you would think that might be a unifying moment for the party but instead you have Senator Lindsey Graham this weekend calling the shutdown ‘a political gift to Democrats’….Mitch McConnell said, ‘I think we fully acquainted our new members with what a losing strategy is.’ That suggests there is a real rift.”

Norquist is a crony capitalist Islamofriendly Svengali.

Frank Gaffney over at the Center for Security Policy, who laid the groundwork for revealing what kind of dangerous clown Grover Norquist is within the Republican party, deserves a great multitude of thanks and praise. He has consistently shown that Norquist is quite the operative who is more concerned with Republicans winning seats, than for Americans winning back their country.

Since the time of Frank Gaffney’s Muslim Brotherhood in America series, conservative Republicans have been witness to how tightly alligned Norquist is to the Republican party establishment (the GOP old guard), since then, his shine has been seriously dulled and Breitbart has as firm grasp of him in its teeth as did Frank Gaffney (who still does).

Grover-Norquist-old guard operative


by TONY LEE 19 Oct 2013, 5:00 PM PDT

Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist has emerged as the Republican establishment’s leading crusader and mouthpiece against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), repeatedly denigrating Cruz for fighting against Obamacare with a tactic that Norquist alleges hurt Republicans.

Obamacare is wreaking havoc on the healthcare choices Americans have in addition to forcing employers to reduce employees’ hours in an already down economy. This has put a spotlight on many of the law’s failures in a way those like Norquist were never able to do in a sustained manner.

Norquist has single-handedly tried to obliterate Cruz in nearly every outlet that has given him a microphone. He has said Cruz’s effort to defund Obamacare never had a chance to work without mentioning that Cruz had said Democrats in red states could be persuaded to support defunding Obamacare only if Republicans were united first, which was what Cruz sought to do from the outset.

Cruz likened Republicans who were opposed to the defunding efforts to the Air Force bombing their own troops, undermining the chances of success.

Before and especially after the government shutdown, Norquist attacked Cruz for throwing Republicans into traffic and wandering away. He has said Cruz has dragged Republicans across broken glass, dismissed Cruz’s “tactic,” condescendingly suggested Cruz was now wiser, said Cruz has “crashed and burned,” and even demanded that Cruz apologize not only to Republicans but to the constituents for whom Cruz was fighting and to whom he was listening.

Norquist’s fight against Cruz represents the broader struggle within the Republican party between an establishment desperately clinging to its past power and a growing grassroots-powered conservative movement that represents the future.

“Grover supplies grass-roots power, which is why lobbyists want him on their side,” Republican insider John Feehery said of him last decade. “He senses where he can get activists around the country riled. He’s a master organizer on specific issues.”

But in the age of new media, such establishment gatekeeping organizations are less relevant as information–even about inside Washington and its players–is democratized. Those like Cruz can galvanize the grassroots and put pressure on politicians in a way only those with the financial and institutional resources like Norquist had been able to do before.

Liberal heckling sparks stream of one-liners from Ted Cruz

After his recent 21-hour filibuster-style marathon speech on Obamacare, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz found himself heckled over and over again by liberal activists during remarks at a conservative conference in Washington D.C. on Friday.

The constant interrupting by hecklers throughout his speech at the Values Voter Summit led the Republican lawmaker to throw out a number of crowd-pleasing one-liners:

  • In response to one heckler, Cruz said: “Thank you, sir, for being here. You know, look, it is a great thing that people can express their First Amendment rights. And I only wish the Obama administration respected First Amendment rights that much.”
  • To another heckler, Cruz responded: “Ma’am, thank you for being here. I wish you would participate in the democratic process through speaking respectfully. … It seems that President Obama’s paid political operatives are out in force today. And you know why? Because the men and women in this room scare the living daylights out of them.”
  • Interrupted again, Cruz took aim at the president: “You know what? I’m curious. Is anybody left at the Organizing for America headquarters? I’m actually glad that the president’s whole political staff is here instead of actually doing mischief in the country.”
  • When another heckler yelled out a question, Cruz responded: “You know what’s striking, actually? In the course of this brief speech, we’ve heard more questions than President Obama has allowed in the last year.”

Bring on the primaries!

You tell me, does the current crop of GOP squish leaders sound like Reagan, or capitulating squishes? Who would you rather see leading the GOP right now, Reaganite republicans, or the continued likes of Mr. White board non-strategist Karl Rove, John McCain, Mitch McConnell, Johhny Boehner, and their pundits, former Walter Mondale speech writer, Charles Krauthammer etc etc  ad nauseum?

NOTE: These country club republicans haven’t any true conservative principles, you can see it by how they dance on all sides of the issues. Not Reagan.

“Where is he today?” Levin said of McConnell.

Levin also discussed plans by Republican establishment figures to take down the Tea Party with so-called “pro-business” candidates who love crony capitalism. The Republican establishment indicated they will target conservatives like Reps. Steve King (R-IA) or Justin Amash (R-MI) with candidates from the center.

Levin called those like John Sununu, the moderate New Hampshire Republican and former Chief of Staff to George H.W. Bush, and former Mississippi Governor and lobbyist Haley Barbour, two of the politicians behind such efforts, “losers.” He then blasted those like Sen John McCain (R-AZ), who Levin said “moves right” to get reelected and then “moves back” to the left once back in office. He also called out Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) for being the latest establishment front man and said these politicians “are not going to take down Obamacare.”

Diana is sure enough willing, but it all depends upon what the former Bolshoi plans on doing. All she wants is a rigorous / spirited academic debate on her findings, that means no ad hominem  attacks on her person and her work nor the censoring of her material and reviews that speak favorably of her work. It’s not much to ask.

UPDATE: A friend adds: Being an ex-commie is not the same as being a conservative. Actually there was a book review on Rebecca West’s late 1940s book “On Treason” in the Saturday Wall Street Journal that touched on this – that ex-communists keep a bolshie frame of mind, dividing everything into good and evil. From a reviewers brief take on a bio of Whittaker Chambers, who left communism – is a bit like Horowitz:

“Chambers seems not to realize how committed a Bolshevik he remains—not in his objectives, of course, but in his habit of mind.” He saw life, in the Puritan tradition, as an apocalyptic battle between Good and Evil.”

Add in narcissism, old-age dementia, a healthy dose of personality traits comprised mostly of bile, rage and self-pity, mix in the Bolshie parts to ferment, and there you are – a Horowitz on the rocks!

In particular, the number who have recognized the danger posed by the Muslim Brotherhood’s “civilization jihad” in America – with its extensive, subversive penetration of our government and civil society – and been willing to raise the alarm about it has been wholly inadequate to the danger we face.

Sadly, that small, but formidable, community has been riven in recent weeks due to, of all things, an ugly fight over the depiction of an earlier threat from another subversive totalitarian foe: Soviet communism. The book in question is American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character, published earlier this year by one of the anti-Islamist cohort’s most insightful and courageous members – nationally syndicated columnist Diana West.

Ms. West’s latest oeuvre started out as an inquiry into how Islamists have successfully gotten “inside the wire” of the White House and other federal agencies, our civil society institutions, and culture. She wanted in particular to consider their impact on U.S. policy and the lengths to which government officials are going to obscure these realities. In the course of researching American Betrayal, however, the intrepid journalist in Diana West prompted her to explore whether such a betrayal was unprecedented, or whether it had actually happened to us before.

It turns out that there is indeed a precedent for today’s deep, stealthy penetration and subversion of our civil society institutions and governing agencies. As American Betrayal chronicles, beginning with Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s normalization of relations with the USSR in November 1933 – which was predicated upon Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov’s written pledge not to use the opening to subvert the United States, successive American administrations of both parties were subjected to successful Kremlin influence operations and lied about them.

Ms. West systematically lays bare (including in over 900 endnotes) the evidence that supports her conclusions about: the large number of Soviet spies and agents of influence that worked in FDR’s four administrations – including a number at the highest levels; the impact they had on policy in the run-up to and during World War II; and the horrific consequences for this country, its vital interests, and the world that resulted.
