Fox News host melts down in all-caps rant about breaking up Texas and Florida to ‘own the libs’

Mark Levin appears on Fox News (screen grab)

Fox News host Mark Levin melted down in an all-caps rant about some of the strategies that Democrats are considering after Republicans announced that they won’t comply with their own rule about appointing Supreme Court justices ahead of a presidential election.

Levin’s first threat to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is that if Democrats “pack the courts” then Republicans will do the same thing when they’re next in power.

“NOTE TO CHUCK SCHUMER: IF YOU SHOULD WIN THE SENATE MAJORITY AND ADD SEATS TO THE SUPREME COURT, THEN WE SHALL ADD FURTHER SEATS WHEN WE RETURN TO THE MAJORITY AND PACK THEM WITH CONSTITUTIONALISTS,” said Levin.

When President Barack Obama was president, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to allow any votes on any judicial appointees, causing serious problems with trials across the country for years. It’s the reason that Trump has been able to pack the courts with his nominees. There was even a case in which McConnell created a judicial vacancy just to get his own former staffer in as a judge.

If Schumer employees his threats, it would take a very long time for Republicans to regain their power. There’s a chance the party may not even exist at that point.

“IF YOU ELIMINATE THE FILIBUSTER RULE AS IT APPLIES TO LEGISLATION, THEN WE SHALL USE IT TO IMPOSE OUR WILL LEGISLATIVELY AND REVERSE YOUR LEGISLATIVE ACTIONS WHEREVER POSSIBLE WHEN WE RETURN TO THE MAJORITY,” Levin also threatened.

This too presumes that Republicans would be able to regain power after Schumer makes good on his promises.

“IF YOU ADD DEMOCRAT SEATS BY ADDING DC AND PUERTO RICO TO THE SENATE, WE SHALL ADD AMERICAN SAMOA AND BREAKUP POTENTIAL OTHER STATES (LIKE TEXAS AND PERHAPS FLORIDA) AND CREATE ADDITIONAL REPUBLICAN SENATE SEATS.” Levin closed.

Breaking Texas and Florida into pieces to “own the libs” isn’t exactly a possibility according to Article IV, Section 3, of the Constitution. They would need Congressional approval to do so.

“New states may be admitted by the Congress into this union; but no new states shall be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any other state; nor any state be formed by the junction of two or more states, or parts of states, without the consent of the legislatures of the states concerned as well as of the Congress,” it reads.

So places like Puerto Rico, Washington, D.C. and American Samoa could be added to the union. If that’s the trade, it seems fair that all of the territories become states, which would still give Democrats the advantage. It could also give the territories the reassurance that the U.S. will come to their aid in disasters.

2020 Election

Stocks suffered worst week — and worse month — since March as election approaches

Published

on

President Donald Trump has regularly bragged about the stock markets as he campaigns for re-election.

Although a poor barometer for the economy due to the lack of stock ownership, Trump has relied upon it as a stand-in for the overall health of the economy.

But as the election approaches, the numbers are not looking good for him.

"The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined Friday, closing out its worst week and month since March in the final lap of the presidential race," The Wall Street Journal reported Friday. "Volatility reigned in the week before the Nov. 3 contest. Investors have been spooked by a record high in coronavirus infections in the U.S., fresh lockdowns in Europe that threaten economic growth and a mixed bag of earnings report from big technology companies."

Trump’s new National Guard ‘regional response units’ could deploy for election unrest: report

Published

on

A new unit of mostly military policemen has been established by the National Guard Bureau in response to ongoing civil unrest in the coming days leading up to Nov. 3.

"The unit, which also could be used to respond to natural disasters and other missions, was formed in September and initially described as a rapid-reaction force," Dan Lamothe wrote in Friday's Washington Post. "But as one of the most divisive elections in American history closes in, National Guard officials have softened how they characterize the service members, instead referring to them as 'regional response units.'"

‘Desperate’ Trump ripped as being ‘like a neglected child obsessing over being loved’ after rally meltdown

Published

President Donald J. Trump once again harassed Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from the campaign trail during his rally for re-election in Green Bay, Wisconsin Friday. With four days until Election Day, Trump appeared to be pulling out his old tricks.

"Omar. Omar is our secret weapon," he told his supporters. "She doesn't love our country, you know? I don't like people that don't love our country."

Ilhan retweeted the mention, saying, "Every freaking rally, seriously this is getting old and reeks of desperation. He is like a neglected child obsessing over being loved. Pathetic."
