On Friday's Mark Levin Show, many define Liberty differently than the statist-progressives do. Leftists rarely quote Lincoln. Could it be because he was the Great emancipator? Or is it because of Lincoln's commitment to Liberty over Tyranny? Isaiah Berlin's concept of positive and negative liberty is that negative liberty is the absence of obstacles, barriers, or constraints. Positive liberty is the possibility of acting — or the fact of acting — in such a way as to take control of one's life and realize one's fundamental purposes. Then, Democrat Klansman Senator Robert Byrd's name is attached to many taxpayer-funded bridges, buildings, and other public structures - his name should be removed! Whether it's progressivism, socialism, or statism, all the "ism's" trend toward a perceived utopia - which is an artificial construct that's actually anarchistic. In reality, we're not all monolithic Marxists. Later, Cornell Law School Professor William Jacobson calls in to explain how the Black Lives Matters (BLM) movement was built on a fabrication and promoted by anti-police and anti-capitalist groups. What's more, the Dean of the law school has denounced him for having an opposing viewpoint. Similarly, Mort Klein the President of the Zionist Association of America (ZOA) joins us to share how BLM is trying to destroy him and his organization after criticizing them. Afterward, Senator Tom Cotton joins the show to rebuke to ‘cancel culture,’ the censorship of any media or business that doesn’t conform to a specific set of extreme left-wing ideologies.
In this episode I address the growing pressure for Americans to subjugate themselves to destructive liberal narratives. Please, this is the time for strength.  News Picks: Declassified intelligence shows they all knew that the dossier was garbage.  The Spygate colluders included the debunked dossier in the ICA despite knowing it was false. Congressional candidate banned from Facebook ads heads to run off in GOP primary.  No, we haven’t defunded education for years. This is another liberal myth.  Copyright Bongino Inc All Rights Reserved.

George Floyd’s killing has prompted a national outcry and a wide reassessment of the ways in which racist systems are intrinsic to America. The anti-racism trainer Suzanne Plihcik argues that racism occurs even in the absence of people who seem like racists: “We are set up for it to happen,” she tells Dorothy Wickenden, and changing those systems will require sustained white action. Plus, the political reporter Eric Lach follows a congressional Democratic primary race to learn how the coronavirus pandemic has changed modern campaigning.

Attorney General Bill Barr was in on Trump’s scheme to bribe and lean on Ukraine’s president. He let his boss’ criminal cronies off the hook. But the worst part, former DOJ prosecutor Glenn Kirschner says, was Barr’s crackdown in Lafayette Square on people just expressing their First Amendment rights. And if Barr isn’t under criminal investigation in 2021 for that, he tells Rick Wilson and Molly Jong-Fast, then “shame on us.” It’s part of a jam-packed episode of The New Abnormal. Rachel Bitecofer of the Niskansen Center for Public Policy, joined Molly and Rick to present her forecast for this November. Of course, the dynamic duo tackle the ultimate fuckery that is the Donald Trump White House, including the president “playing footsie” with Confederate flag truthers, his Twitter-gasm over his Tulsa rally and how the “Bitch Boy” and his minions did the seeming impossible: became even more racist.

On Thursday's Mark Levin Show, Abraham Lincoln's second inaugural address was a compelling address focused on faith, harmony, and unity. Lincoln urged "With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan—to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations.” Then, Speaker Nancy Pelosi calls for statues that have been in the Capitol building to be removed. Interestingly when she was Speaker, Barack Obama was President, Joe Biden was Vice President, and Harry Reid was Senate Majority Leader (all four of them Democrats) they did nothing to remove the statues then. Later, the violence that the hard left has embraced is the acceptance of totalitarianism. The media's silence is the acquiescence of the takeover of a Seattle police precinct and six blocks surrounding it. Afterward, the Democrats thrive when Americans have their hands at each other's throats. Sen. Tim Scott is labeled "a token" by the left for being a successful African American because he's a Republican and the left never seeks to lift up, they only seek to tear down. Meanwhile, then-Sen. Joe Biden praised the daughters of the confederacy as "very fine people" for continuing to display the confederate flag.
The idea of police "reform" has been tried and has failed. Rather than call for milquetoast reforms that leave the structure of U.S. law enforcement in place, many of the protestors are calling to "defund the police." Michael is joined by Alex S. Vitale, author of "The End of Policing" to explain what this means, how this works, any why settling for half-measures will result in more police violence against Black Americans. Download Alex's book "The End of Policing" for free: https://www.versobooks.com/books/2426-the-end-of-policing The answer to police violence is not 'reform'. It's defunding.

A Friday-afternoon story we couldn’t ignore: The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced new rules Friday afternoon that would effectively exclude trans people from protection against health care discrimination. The news  comes amid the pandemic, during LGBT Pride Month and at a time when America is in a fury over systemic oppression of a different sort… We discuss. But it’s not all dark on this Friday show. We’ll also journey back into the thicket of HBO’s sophisticated/weird branding. As always, you can find links to everything we talked about today at makemesmart.org
For weeks and weeks, when millions of Americans were still under lockdown, there were pretty clear rules about what to do. Now that things are opening up, many people are having to decide for themselves what's safe and what risks they're willing to take.

In this episode I address the continued media misinformation campaign about the protests and the Wuhan virus. I also address the hiding of this key Spygate player, and the potential reasons why. I also discuss this enormous threat to policing in America.  News Picks: There’s going to be a massive brain drain in America’s police departments.  The hapless WHO is now changing their minds, AGAIN, on the Wuhan Virus.  Los Angeles City Council member, who is advocating to cut the LAPD budget, had a security detail for herself.

Two years ago, Vox's David Roberts wrote a piece arguing that The New York Times opinion section is not honest about the state of American conservatism. The animating force behind conservative politics in this country, he wrote, is Trumpism. Therefore, to invite conservative writers who truly articulated Trump's views to readers would mean inviting a strain of authoritarianism and illiberalism that would never actually be welcome in its opinion pages. Instead, they invite relatively palatable conservatives who make irrelevant arguments about politics. It's a losing game. Last week, however, the paper invited Senator Tom Cotton, R-Ark., to write an opinion piece arguing for the military to be sent to American streets to "restore order." Former Times opinion editor James Bennet (who has since resigned) also admitted that he had not read it before it was published. So, what does this latest episode tell us about the media's role in upholding America's values? This week, David Roberts once again wrote about the Times opinion section for Vox, in a post arguing that the Cotton op-ed "revealed a pathology on the editorial side... an insistence on extending the presumption of good faith to the GOP, even in the face of its rising authoritarianism."
On Wednesday's Mark Levin Show, there's no proof of systemic racism, yet there is proof that the justice system reacted very quickly in response to George Floyd's murder. This tragedy has been hijacked from the mourning of a loss to a political attack on America's society, police, and President. Then, Lebron James says that our economic system, our cops, and our voting system are systemically racist. What we're witnessing is a communist-styled purging of police stations, professors, and administrators that dare to disagree. It's the end of free thought. Later, the Black Lives Matters movement has wrongly accused the Israeli Defense Forces of training American police to be systemically racist. This is becoming more and more like the French Revolution and the armed ANTIFA militants receive no criticism. Afterward, Rep. Mike Johnson joins the show to discuss a solutions-oriented plan for preserving American leadership around the globe and promoting a U.S. foreign policy that advances the interests of the American people at home and abroad.

Today on the Matt Walsh Show, we are told the privilege in this country is reserved for white people, especially white males. But I think the real privilege in our modern culture is leftist privilege. I’ll explain why.
