Mark Levin chats with Sean Hannity about the timidity of the establishment Republican Party and their refusal to stand against the Democrats. Levin adds that the only true conservative presidents in the last 100 years were Calvin Coolidge and Ronald Reagan and that the other Republican “leaders” have merely built on top of what the Left has created. He then went on to talk about the establishment’s love for Common Core and open borders. Leven went on to say that “…We need principled Conservatives and that people under 50 in this country have never had an opportunity to actually vote for a Conservative president…” And that he thinks “…it’s up to us and millions of others in our generation to give them the opportunity. And that’s exciting and invigorating to support somebody not because you want to stop the democrats, but because you really believe in what they are saying…” He then went on to say “…that a Conservative candidate will in fact reignite the excitement of the Reagan Democrats and others.”
They went on to talk about how both the left and right have attacked Conservatives at every turn. Levin talked about the Bush operatives, both Jeb and George, and the Karl Rove operatives using super PACS to trash the new Conservatives who are trying to break through. He said that “…We Conservatives, we Constitutionalists, will never have an opportunity to beat the Democrats unless we bust through, muscle through the Republican Establishment that despises us. People need to remember, particularly young people out there: They tried to stop Reagan; the Bush family tried to stop Reagan; the Republican Establishment tried to stop Reagan. There would have been no Reagan had they succeeded. And we talk about the next Reagan. Look, it doesn’t matter if we have the next Reagan, we need the next fresh faced Conservative, who will connect with the American people, but we’re not going to have that chance as long as we keep getting these long in the tooth, dug in Republicans, these corporatists who are perfectly happy with big government as long as they’re running it.”
In the final portion of the segment Levin and Hannity discussed President Obama’s mishandling of the negotiations with Iran and how he is succeeding in taking this country down. Levin said that it is up to “…People like us, and the Republican Party and Conservatives to try and stop him and then when he’s out of office to try and rebuild what’s left of our Republic.”
Mark Levin is a Constitutional scholar, a former official in the Reagan Justice Department and a radio talk show host.

When President Obama announced on March 31 that he intends to ensure that the U.S. will slash its “greenhouse gas emissions” 26% below 2005 emissions levels by 2025 in order to keep pledges made to fulfill the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, he failed to mention that such levels would be comparable to what they were in our Civil War era, 150 years ago.
He also failed to mention that the U.S. has made no such pledges as regards the 1992 “Kyoto Treaty” which was resoundingly rejected by the U.S. Senate when then Vice President Al Gore brought it back from the U.N. conference.
There is no need, globally or nationally, to reduce such emissions. It would be a crime against humanity, especially for the millions that would be denied electrical power or would see its cost rise exponentially. “The President has no credible evidence to back up his claims,” said H. Sterling Burnett, a Research Fellow with the free market think tank, The Heartland Institute. “Obama’s climate actions are likely to cause far more harm to people, especially the poor, than any purported threats from global warming.” Read more at canadafreepres.com.

One thing I have often pointed out about the Affordable Care Act (ACA alias Obamacare) is that very few doctors participated in the conceptualization of the legislation. The final bill focuses on expanding Americans’ access to health insurance with a total disregard for increasing the supply of medical professionals or facilities for treatment. Some doctors are directing their efforts to educating their patients and the voting public of what they believe the bill is doing to harm patient care.
To better learn the effects upon doctors and thus their patients of this new law, I had a conference call with a group of them who have formed Our Patients First Pac. Dr. Joel Strom, a dentist from Los Angeles and the principal organizer of the group, arranged for the call with himself and five other doctors from across the country. Strom has been working and organizing in the political arena for over three decades and is the author of Learn to Lead: Finding Success as a Grassroots Political Leader.
The group was formed initially to help a fellow physician, Bill Cassidy, in his successful U.S. Senate election in Louisiana. They expanded their efforts to produce 10 radio spots and a video which were aired in Iowa and New Hampshire. They are now looking forward to further expanding their membership and fundraising toward educating the public about the shortcomings of the ACA.
In a conference call with a group of doctors, we went back to the period prior to the ACA’s passing and the fact that the American Medical Association (AMA) had endorsed the bill. None of the doctors are members of the AMA except for Nikan Khatabi, who practices family medicine in Laguna, CA. Khatabi stated “I am a member of the AMA because advocating for the health of my patients and rights for my colleagues doesn’t take a back seat. Either you’re at the dinner table or you’re on the menu – period.” [bold type: mine] All of the doctors were strongly against the actions of the AMA regarding Obamacare. They all questioned why if the AMA was at the table they did not abandon the bill when they found out what was in it before it was approved. Read more at townhall.com.

“Weeks after leaving office, Obama discovers a leak under his sink so he calls a plumber to fix it…”
While it might sound charitable at first glance, be very wary, for socialism in any form always produces the most horrific of results, as this example demonstrates:
Only weeks after leaving office on Jan. 20, 2017, former President Barack Obama discovers a leak under his sink, so he calls Troy the Plumber to come out and fix it.
Troy drives to Obama’s new house, which is located in a very exclusive, gated community near Chicago where all the residents have a net income of way more than $250,000 per year.
Troy arrives and takes his tools into the house. He is led to the guest bathroom that contains the leaky pipe under the sink. Troy assesses the problem and tells Obama that it’s an easy repair that will take less than 10 minutes. Obama asks Troy how much it will cost. Troy checks his rate chart and says, “$9,500.”
“What?! $9,500?!” Obama asks, stunned, “But you said it’s an easy repair. Michelle will whip me if I pay a plumber that much!”
Troy says, “Yes, but what I do is charge those who make more than $250,000 per year a much higher amount so I can fix the plumbing of poorer people for free. This has always been my philosophy. As a matter of fact, I lobbied the Democrat Congress, who passed this philosophy into law. Now all plumbers must do business this way. It’s known as the ‘Affordable Plumbing Act of 2014′. I’m surprised you haven’t heard of it.” Continue reading at: conservativetribune.com.
It is futile to think that Obama will cease from his assaults on Israel in the remaining 22 months of his second and final term in office.

This is hardly the best week to demonstrate his intense hatred of Israel, but since he has devoted 18 months to a fruitless and foolish negotiation with Iran, one can understand why Barack Hussein Obama is in a bad mood. His foreign policy “legacy” is close to being flushed down the Iranian toilet.
On March 31, the Defense of Democracies’ Iran Press Review quoted the Deputy Commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri, who said, “All should know that we will not allow the inspection of the country’s military and defense industries.” Or, as they say in Farsi, “No deal.”
This week began with Palm Sunday celebrating Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and proceeds to Good Friday which, at sundown, coincides with the Jewish observance of Passover and Christianity’s “last supper.” It concludes with Easter; holy days that occurred in the holy land that was Israel then and now.
Jesus was a Jew preaching primarily to Jews, whose disciples were Jews, and doing so entirely in Israel, the homeland of Jews for more than a thousand years at that time. The ancestors of Arabs in those days would have been regarded as Assyrians or Egyptians. The people called “Palestinians” did not exist until designated as such by Yassir Arafat in the 1960s.
So why is Obama leading a virtual war on Israel by declassifying information about Israel’s nuclear defenses and a purported effort to get the United Nations to declare “Palestine” a separate state?
At what point will it be understood that the United Nations has no power to create states or to grant formal “recognition” to state aspirants and that the Palestinian Authority and/or Hamas does not meet even the most basic characteristics of a state, lacking for example either a capitol or a currency.

Last week week the Army finally decided to charge Sgt Bowe Bergdahl with desertion. Perhaps the person most disappointed with the charges against the man whose freedom was gained via a trade for five senior Taliban leaders is President Barack Obama. According to Newsbusted anchor Jodie Miller just before the announcement the President had decided to award Bergdahl with the nation’s highest military honor, The Medal of Honor.

March 31st, 2015 • On The Kelly File, retiring Senator Harry Reid smugly all but admitted that he lied to the American people during the 2012 presidential election when he falsely accused Mitt Romney of not filing tax returns. Megyn Kelly and Dana Loesch discuss the Nevada senator’s brazen behavior. Finally Progressive “child pundit” Richard Fowler joins in and tries to make the case that it’s just fine to lie. After all, it was an election. My jaw would have dropped had I heard this a few years ago, but today, it’s typical. How sad … and demented.

The Republicans displayed this Obamacare Rube Goldberg chart when fighting against it. House Republicans just voted to implement this chart for Medicare - Email the Senate and tell them “NO” Obamacare rationing and cookbook medicine in Medicare!
Last Week, House Republicans demonstrated their hypocrisy on Obamacare, bringing nearly every key item of Obamacare into the Medicare. Disguised as a “Doc fix” bill, to correct a pending 21% cut in Medicare Physician payments, the bill actually creates cookbook medicine and outright rationing for Medicare patients. A nearly identical bill has failed to pass twice in Congress since 2013, but was finally passed when Republicans gained control. Medicare patients will now be subject to doctors who are coerced into following government cookbook and rationing standards to earn a “bonus”. The patient will be pitted against their doctor who will have incentives tied to the profitability of insurance companies and budget needs of failing government programs. In short, it will be hard for Medicare patients to trust their doctors.
Hopefully the Senate will kill HR2 and go back to the drawing board. Citizens are encouraged to call or email their Senator to tell them “No Obamacare rationing and cookbook medicine in Medicare: Vote NO on HR2!”.
The bill, HR 2, the “Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015”, passed the House with Bipartisan support with a wide margins. However, the bill stalled in the Senate were fiscal conservatives raised concerns about the bill and liberals were worried that the Children’s Health insurance program (CHIP) was only extended for two years rather than four. The main commonality of HR2 with Obamacare consists of the command and control structure becomes more formalized and structured into Medicare. This stands in stark contrast to the promise made by Congress when Medicare was originally passed in 1965. The law still stands and states (although is entirely ignored in new Congressional bill):

This girl is definitely going places.
Sydney Smoot, a fourth grader at Brooksville Elementary in Florida, had some harsh words for the Hernando County School Board earlier this month on the state’s restrictive standardized testing program.
She told the board:
“This testing looks at me as a number. One test defines me as either a failure or a success through a numbered rubric. One test at the end of the year that the teacher or myself will not even see the grade until after the school year is already over. I do not feel that all this FSA testing is accurate to tell how successful I am. It doesn’t take in account all of my knowledge and abilities, just a small percentage.”
Smoot even provided the board with suggestions for how to make the testing process – known as The Florida Standards Assessment Test – more productive, such as breaking the larger test up into smaller, more frequent tests throughout the year. read more at ijreview.com.

Wow! Can you believe how Ted Cruz is catching it from both sides in response to his powerful speech announcing his quest to win the White House in 2016? As expected, the Left is doing their typical thing calling Cruz extreme, stupid and crazy. Conservatives are taking shots at Cruz because he has not mastered walking on water.
Folks, this is what you get when you have the cojones to take a bold stand for liberty and conservatism. The hysteria, outrage, slings and arrows coming from both sides of the political aisle targeted at Cruz is what a true conservative must be willing to endure.
For crying out loud, Cruz simply trumpeted traditional principles and values that Americans have celebrated since the Republic’s founding; American Exceptionalism, liberty, freedom, hard work, God and country. The problem is without even realizing it, many have succumb[sic] to the Left successfully tainting their thinking, lowering the nation’s behavioral bar and forcing political correctness down our throats. So when a Ted Cruz comes along, his message sounds edgy to those hearing it for the first time. And yet, I believe many will be instinctively drawn to it.
Why? Because conservatism connects with our higher self/spirit. It inspires people to be the best they can be. That is what attracted me to conservatism.
Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice….and follow me.” Without a miracle, conservatism will not resonate with lazy deadbeats filled with class envy and hatred for achievers. It is a foreign language to them. All they care about is handouts and a free ride. Let the Democrats continue pandering to them; the chickens and turtles. Let’s take the higher ground, striving to attract eagles which I believe are a majority of the American people. This is why the Left is so terrified of Cruz, he knows how to spread the good news of conservatism.
Folks, we must stop Obama’s quest to diminish who we are, reducing us to a nation of part-time workers, dependent and subservient to big government. In the name of our founding fathers, we are Americans! Let’s act like it! Read more at Lloydmarcus.com.
