I wrote “What Lurks over the Horizon?” November 2008 just before the General Election. At that time, several “conservative” outlets were routinely publishing my commentaries, but none of them wanted to publish this piece. Go figure. A few months later I started my own blog, The Millstone Diaries. It was my first blog post, and I posted it for posterity’ sake March 2009. Read it if you dare. Peace.

What Lurks over the Horizon?

America stands poised at the edge of a precipice; her next step could send her plummeting headlong to an untimely death. Yet, to even suggest such a possibility opens the door to charges of alarmism or hyperbolic fear-mongering. The chattering classes preach that a dictatorship can’t happen here; America will survive even with one-party rule and a radical socialist in the White House. The radio talk-show host, whose persistent pipes of “Let not your heart be troubled,” has done little to allay my fears for what is likely to happen to my country if the Democrats gain a super majority in Congress and Barack Obama wins the presidency.

It seems that conservative and libertarian pundits and commentators have not connected the dots to see the picture that I see, for they would be sounding the alarm and warning Americans of the radicalism that is about to bring down their nation. Then again, perhaps some have captured the image through their rose-colored glasses but are so attached to their celebrity status that they dare not point it out for fear of being ostracized and labeled a “kook” by their more “sensible” colleagues.

Call me a kook and detest me, but name-calling and rejection will not stop this watchman from warning our fence-sitting Americans of what lurks over the horizon. Facts are stubborn things; they are not opinions subject to debate, and for that reason, two plus two always equal four, not five, contrary to the slogans in Stalin’s Soviet Union or the announcements from the Party of Big Brother in George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. Orwell’s protagonist, Winston Smith, who works in the media and creates the Party’s deceptive propaganda, doesn’t know for sure if two plus two equal five, as the Party claims, “If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable—what then?”

Here we stand a divided country on the brink of entering a nightmare world, unprecedented in American politics, with an undecided electorate who are unsure for whom they will vote in this election. They see Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum, six of one, half-dozen of the other, without a dime’s difference between them. Like Winston Smith, they don’t know if two plus two equal four or two and two make five.

Unlike Smith, our undecideds don’t live in an Orwellian society under a totalitarian government, at least not yet, so why don’t they know a radical socialist when they see one? Perhaps they can’t distinguish a radical socialist from a moderate conservative because they have absorbed so much conflicting information from the media making it impossible to sort out.

Conservative pundits and commentators have made a critical error in judgment by depicting Obama as the most liberal member of the Senate. Obama is anything but liberal; he is a radical socialist ideologue whose worldview and personality traits align him more with the revolutionary demagogues Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez than they do George McGovern and Jimmy Carter. This is why Castro writes in a column that Obama is “the most progressive candidate for the U.S. presidency.”

Add the word progressive to the word Democrat and you get activists demanding a socialist agenda; i.e., massive income redistribution from corporations and the wealthy to low income workers and the poor; massive reductions in military spending; an increase in social welfare spending; universal healthcare; living wage laws; the right of all workers to organize into labor unions and to engage in strikes and collective bargaining; the abolition of significant portions of the Patriot Act; the legalization of gay marriage; strict campaign finance reform laws; a complete pullout from the war in Iraq; a crackdown on free trade and corporate welfare; and the Freedom of Choice Act, which would cancel every state, federal, and local regulation on abortion, abolish all state restrictions on government funding for abortions, and if Obama is elected, use income taxes to fund abortions.

In other words, you get the issues and causes championed by both the House Progressive Caucus (HPC), which is now the single largest partisan caucus in the United States House of Representatives, and the country’s most radical socialist presidential candidate. HPC, a group made up of the most radical social democrats in Congress, is involved in symbiotic relationship with the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which is the largest socialist organization in the United States.is the principal affiliate of the Socialist International, which claims to be the successor to Karl Marx’s “First International,” founded in London in 1864.

During his commencement address at Harvard, Alexander Solzhenitsyn said, “socialism of any type and shade leads to a total destruction of the human spirit and to a leveling of mankind into death.” Eric Hoffer correctly analyzed that socialist movements attract the misfits who are dissatisfied with themselves and their lives, who blame their own condition on outside forces, and think that a change in the world around them will suddenly transform their identities and magically cure their problems. The people caught up in socialist movements are searching for meaning in their lives; therefore, they often hate the present and passionately seek a perfect tomorrow.

Hoffer understood that America had a vigorous and healthy society because of the quality of its common people. Until recently, most Americans have been comfortable in their own skin and satisfied with their own lives, which explains why they have not been mesmerized by socialist movements such as Nazism, fascism, and communism. But now, far too many Americans are mesmerized by Obama’s words and image, not for what he’s accomplished, but for what they hope he will become.

Never before has a politician had such a captivating effect on so many Americans. Such a grandiose claim “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for” by the charismatic leader of change about himself and the ruling clique of radical socialists in Congress is reason enough to give pause. Mark Levin says his greatest concern is whether the majority of voters will prove “susceptible to the appeal of a charismatic demagogue.”

It’s regrettable when any nation’s people surrender their hearts and minds over to a despot; but when the electorate of the freest people in the greatest nation on earth do it, “[t]his prospect frightens me much more than bombs.” What happened in Germany with Hitler, happened again in Cuba with Castro, and can happen here in the United States with Obama. It was the ordinary people who carried out the leader’s heinous crimes and murders believing in the glorious tomorrow promised them. “Of all tyrannies,” writes C.S. Lewis, “a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.”

The Germans had enormous war debts and a terrible economy, so they believed the charismatic leader who personified hope and went on to elect the National Socialist Workers Party (Nazis) that promised change. The Cubans also supported a young, charismatic leader who promised change, and they openly embraced his idea without asking what kind of change or knowing the price they would have to pay. The upshot for our undecided electorate to ponder is that freedom is not free and “is never more than one generation away from extinction.”

Defend the Constitution, Don’t Amend It

By Jerry A. Kane

“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free … it expects what never was and never will be.”— Thomas Jefferson

Many Americans are too intellectually lazy to act as vigilant citizens, so they have deferred that responsibility to lobbyists and activists promoting an Article V “Convention for proposing Amendments,” a.k.a. the Convention of States (CoS) Project.

conspirators-to-destroy-constitution2

Article V of the Constitution establishes two ways for proposing amendments to the Constitution: “whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states.”

The CoS Project wants to convene a convention to propose amendments that will “impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of office for its officials and for members of Congress.”

The problem is America’s tyrannical federal government did not arise due to a defect in the Constitution; leviathan arose because the Constitution is not being enforced and obeyed. That is to say, the Constitution is not flawed but the enforcement of its provisions is. And quick-fix repairs offered under the guise of “reining in the federal government” could backfire and open up the Constitution to revisions or wholesale rewrites.

“One of the most serious problems Article V poses is a runaway convention. There is no enforceable mechanism to prevent a convention from reporting out wholesale changes to our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Moreover, the absence of any mechanism to ensure representative selection of delegates could put a runaway convention in the hands of single-issue groups whose self-interest may be contrary to our national well-being.”—Arthur Goldberg, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, op-ed Miami Herald, 1986

We don’t need a cadre of politicians, pundits, media personalities, and establishment elites to “fix” our Constitution with their words and amendments when the Constitution is not broken. The Constitution should be preserved, protected, and defended from tinkering by these tinhorns and their moneyed interests.

Our Constitution is a historical miracle and a one-of-a-kind document that is the envy of the world. To convene a convention to alter it is not only foolhardy but it is tempting fate.

“Miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.”—Daniel Webster

In “Dangers of an Article V Constitutional Convention,” the 55 minute video below, KrisAnne Hall and Peter Boyce explain the problems with the Convention of States idea.

“For one to fundamentally transform America, it would take structural changes to the Constitution.”—Peter Boyce

A CoS would provide the structural changes that are needed to complete Barack Obama’s transformation of America. Listen carefully and weigh the arguments presented by Hall and Boyce to understand the inherent dangers of the CoS Project

Americans need to realize that once the CoS application triggers an Article V Convention for proposing amendments, the entire Constitution will be subject to amendment. The truth is a Convention of States will destroy our Constitution if it is not stopped now.

House Republicans Threaten Government Shut Down if PP Is not Defunded

By Jerry A. Kane

The Republican-controlled Senate will go through the motions and conduct a sham vote tomorrow evening on a stand-alone bill to de-fund Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.

The sham legislation is designed to deceive low-information conservatives and knee-jerk pro-lifers into believing Senate Republicans actually want to defund PP. Had Senate Republicans really wanted to defund PP, they would have done it by including an amendment to the Highway Bill where the Republican majority in the Senate could have easily passed it with 50 votes. But Senate Majority Leader and chief Obama enabler Mitch McConnell opted instead to adopt Harry Reid’s underhanded “fill-the-tree” trick to stop Republican Senator Mike Lee from offering the amendment to defund PP.

And now the pseudo-conservative/pro-life McConnell is sending up this sham legislation which of course will be filibustered by Senate Democrats and resoundingly defeated because he won’t get the 60 votes he needs to pass it. Then he and the Republican Senators can stand boldly before the party faithful and say they tried to defund PP, but those abortion-loving Democrats filibustered the bill and kept it from happening.

No voice

McConnell and Senate Republican can get away with this con because they know “conservative” voices on Fox News such as Charles Krauthammer and George Will and “pro-life” voices on talk radio like Bill Bennett and Jay Sekulow will downplay or ignore McConnell’s trick with the Highway Bill and blame the filibuster for defeating Republican efforts to de-fund PP.

So now there’s a group of 18 House Republicans issuing idle threats to hold up any spending bill to fund the federal government that does not contain language to de-fund PP. This ploy, too is outright laughable.

“We must act to fully defund Planned Parenthood. Please know that we cannot and will not support any funding resolution — an appropriations bill, an omnibus package, a continuing resolution, or otherwise — that contains any funding for Planned Parenthood, including mandatory funding streams,” wrote the 18 Republicans in a letter to House leaders

As he has done before, House Speaker John “Tammy Faye” Boehner will seek out the necessary Democrat support to pass any future spending bills.

And when that happens, the gang of 18 will collectively sigh, “We tried!” to Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, et al. Then Levin will go back to hawking his book, while Hannity summarily ring his hands, and Michael Savage belly aches about the excessive grease in the stir fry at Two Wong’s Don’t Make-A-White.

Eighteen I get confused every day

Eighteen I just don’t know what to say

Eighteen I gotta get away

Do you ever wonder whether or not the smoke McConnell is trying to blow up you ass is carcinogenic?

The purpose of the “Glenn Beck Show” is entertainment, and the joke’s on those who take Glenn Beck seriously.

According to a 2010 USA feature story, “Don’t judge Beck by his cover,” Beck is not a registered Republican. In fact he accuses Ronald Reagan of selling out the American people.

Although Beck masquerades as a grass roots champion of conservative values and libertarian dissent, he’s a showman and a “rodeo clown,” a Mormon entertainer who satirizes politics and criticizes society.

Like, Bufo Bill O’Reilly, his brother from another mother, Beck uses populist rhetoric and watered-down patriotism to attract patriots and evangelical Christians to his program.

He sells books and subscriptions for his internet TV program, and he promotes his internet news site “The Blaze” for ad revenues.

Sadly, too many patriots and evangelicals have deluded themselves into believing that Beck is a kindred spirit with an elaborate strategy for saving America.

The truth is Beck is a product of an intellectually-challenged generation of gutless political illiterates who are desperate for someone to lead them and tell them what to think.

He’s not a patriot or an intellectual; in fact, he’s not even a “self-made man.” Beck is famous because of his powerful connections in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was LDS members who dried him out, resurrected his career, and set him up as a superstar in the conservative movement.

American patriots and evangelicals have not only made this Mormon a personal fortune, but they’ve also helped him grow the cult and promote a false gospel.


Glenn Beck Is a Mormon Entertainer, Nothing More

This 8:05 youtube video is taken from The Millstone Report web cast at the Resistance Radio Network.

The two-hour show aired Tuesday, November 12, 2013. TMR was broadcast live M-F from 10:00 am – noon on channel 2.


God only knows if right-thinking people will stop being intellectually lazy and begin to think for themselves instead of listening to Glenn Beck for what to think.

People who love America don’t put money ahead of their country and hire Democrats who support the progressive agenda, no matter how competent. Yet Beck surrounds himself with leftist Democrats.

Leftist Democrat Liz Julis is the editor of Beck’s Fusion magazine; Betsy Morgan, former CEO of the Huffington Post, former Hillary Rodham Clinton fundraiser, and former CBS News employee, runs his website, The Blaze, and Matt Hiltzik, Democrat power player who helped elect Hillary Rodham Clinton to the U.S. Senate, is Beck’s personal publicist.

After Obama was elected in 2008, Beck told CBS News’ Katie Kouric that a McCain presidency would have been worse for the country.

“John McCain would have been worse for the country than Barack Obama. McCain is this weird progressive like Theodore Roosevelt was,” Beck said.

To which Mark Levin responded, “McCain is no conservative … but to say that he would be worse than a president who’s a Marxist … is mindless.”

Not only did the right-wing values-crusader say that the Democrat Obama was better for the nation than the Republican McCain, he has routinely disparaged Republicans and the country’s two-party system, which served only to undermine the Republican Party and aid the Democrat Party.

Bill Bennett has rightly said that “there is a difference between the Republican and Democratic parties. To ignore these differences, or propagate the myth that they don’t exist, is not only discouraging, it is dangerous.”

Beck proudly claims to be non-partisan with no vested interest in helping Republicans return to power. Alexander Zaitchik was right to pen that Beck is “A Savvy Fraud Who Knows Just How to Please His Audience of Conservative Suckers.”

It’s an irony almost too mind-boggling to comprehend to think that someone who surrounds himself with leftist Democrats, thinks George Clooney is “a good, honest man,” and believes that people cause global warming has made millions off patriotic evangelicals and conservatives who desperately want to preserve their republic.


Glenn Beck Lacks Core Principles

Part 1

Glenn Beck reminds me of Larry “Lonesome” Rhodes, the persuasive con artist from Elia Kazan’s 1957 film  A Face in the Crowd.

Rhodes’ “every man” shtick and populist message bring him fame and fortune. His sagebrush wisdom and colloquial charm connect with rural Americans, whom he secretly despises.

This whole country’s just like my flock of sheep! … Rednecks, crackers, hillbillies, hausfraus, shut-ins, pea-pickers – everybody that’s got to jump when somebody else blows the whistle. … They’re mine! I own ’em! They think like I do. Only they’re even more stupid than I am, so I gotta think for ’em.” Lonesome Rhodes

Beloved and idolized by his fans, Rhodes becomes a scheming, manipulating megalomaniac who uses people and discards them in his climb to the top.

His meteoric rise from jailbird to TV star, to political king-maker reveals the public’s gullibility for demagogic media personalities.

Like Rhodes, Beck’s patriotic spiel and carney barker routine have resonated among O’Reilly’s folks and many Christians. But in truth Beck’s crew cut, wide eyes, and cherubic smile are a guise for the duplicitous chameleon whose political viewpoints change with the direction of the political winds.

 “I have no idea what philosophy Glenn Beck is promoting. And neither does he. It’s incoherent. One day it’s populist, the next it’s libertarian bordering on anarchy, next it’s conservative but not really…” Mark Levin

Beck’s an entertainer; he’s a shock jock/stand-up comedian who uses news, issues, and hysterics as bread and circuses for the folks. He comes across as being so patriotic that many Americans ignore the red flags and applaud him for anything he says and everything he does.

It’s sad that so many patriots have not yet realized that the operative word in the phrase “The Glenn Beck Show” is “show.”


This 12:02 youtube video is taken from The Millstone Report web cast at the Resistance Radio Network.


Part 2

Glenn Beck is a duplicitous assclown who portrays himself as a courageous patriot championing the country’s founding principles. But Beck’s not the only flag waving scoundrel picking the bones of America’s Founders.

Both Bufo Bill O’Reilly and Ma-hedonist Rushie Limbaugh have equated themselves to American folk hero Paul Revere, who participated in the Boston Tea Party and alerted the Lexington Minutemen of the British invasion.

Neither O’Reilly nor Limbaugh have exhibited anything that comes close to the courage, valor, and bravery displayed by Revere to warrant the comparison. Yet, patriotic Americans will stand in line for hours just to hear them speak or to get their autograph.

I’m not just an entertainer. I’m an influence, a wielder of opinion, a force… a force!” Lonesome Rhodes

During one his shows on Fox, Beck – who is a Mormon – demonstrated what he claimed were similarities between ancient American Indian earthen structures and the Egyptian pyramids.

He claimed that the Bat Creek stone, which was found in an Indian burial mound in Tennessee in 1889, was in fact a Hebrew artifact.

Beck didn’t tell his audience upfront that the authors, scientists, and teachers he cited on his program were Mormons. He presented Mormon theology as “historical fact,” and accused historians and scholars of rewriting American history and engaging in a cover up.

Beck never mentioned that mainstream archeologists, with no ax to grind, have thoroughly debunked Mormon claims that Hebrew artifacts have been found in American Indian burial sites.

The Mormon Church teaches that American Indians are descendants of a lost tribe of Israel even though there’s not a shred of evidence that the civilization Joseph Smith wrote about ever existed in North America.

Major media know that Beck can do more harm than good to the conservative cause. They promote little-known personalities like Glenn Beck to national prominence in order to distract Americans from ever finding another effective, articulate spokesman for conservatism like Ronald Reagan.



This 11:55 youtube video is taken from The Millstone Report web cast at the Resistance Radio Network.


Part 3

Many Glenn Beck supporters found his August 18, 2010, Fox program strange because he failed to tell them that he was presenting the Mormon doctrine on ancient American peoples and the propaganda of a Mormon group known as the Heartlanders, which produced “Lost Civilizations of North America” the DVD “documentary” that Beck referenced in the segment.

Adding insult to injury, Beck stated that the belief in Manifest Destiny (a 19th century belief that Americans were destined to expand their political, social, and economic influence over North America) resulted from an American conspiracy to hide the story of an ancient North American Indian culture.

The Heartlanders claim that the Book of Mormon records events that took place in the northeastern United States. The Heartlanders say that Hebrew descendants lived in North America but not Central America, and in the “documentary” they twist the words of archaeologist and anthropologists to justify their beliefs.

But Beck did not disclose the connection to the Mormon legend because the make up of his audience is not Mormon and could care less what “evidences” a Mormon group has for believing the Book of Mormon is a literal historical record of real people and places.

In a December 29, 2010, response to the program published in the Columbus Dispatch, archaeologist Bradley Lepper of the Ohio Historical Society wrote:

The Lost Civilizations of North America DVD can be ignored since it misrepresents reputable interpretations of Midwest archaeological data—except, perhaps, by those interested in the persistence of pseudoarcheological claims about the cultures and peoples of North America before European colonization.

It is unfortunate that Glenn Beck did not use his forum to emphasize the true charge that Manifest Destiny propaganda fed the racist denigration of America’s past and its ethnic citizens.”

The bottom line is Glenn Beck used deceit and lies to proselytize his Mormon beliefs in an attempt to evangelize an unsuspecting audience.

He presented Mormon legend, Mormon revisionist history, and Mormon propaganda as historical fact; then he stated the reason people don’t know their history is that there’s been a vast American conspiracy to keep it hidden.

Beck is a liar and a hypocrite. He tells his audience to check out what he’s saying, knowing full well that he hasn’t done so himself. Yet he claims that he has to purposely deceive his listeners.

Beck is far worse than just a distraction. He’s a real danger to patriots and tea-party members who are trying to remove Democrat statists and neoconservative Republicans from power to reestablish Constitutional principles and the rule of law and set America right.

It’s heartbreaking that so many Americans ignorantly assume that he’s well read, knows Republican politics, and is good for the nation.

US Senator John McCain (R-AZ) is in the wrong party. He’s not a conservative, or a libertarian, or anything in the middle. He doesn’t fight for truth, justice, or the American way. And what’s more, he isn’t a hero either.

As a POW, McCain was given special treatment and tended by Soviet surgeons at a hospital reserved for the North Vietnamese military, which was a far cry from the way other American POWs were treated.

Even worse, many POWs who were with him at the Hanoi Hilton said he sang like a canary.

No American POW crumbled with such ease or zeal as McCain in collaborating with the enemy and making dozens of propaganda tapes for the North Vietnamese.

Yet most Americans view McCain as a hero because the major media have refused to report the truth about his sordid military service.

Obama’s Bogus Birth Certificate Part 1

The major media have spiked stories and covered up the truth regarding Hussein Obama’s birth certificate.

Here’s the first of two brief three-minute clips that prove Hussein’s birth certificate has been altered and is not authentic.

Obama’s Bogus Birth Certificate Part 2

Unless the questions raised in the two videos are answered logically, common sense dictates that Hussein Obama’s birth certificate is fraudulent.

It’s also obvious that major media ass clowns Bufo Bill O’Reilly, Lightweight Laura Ingraham, Michael “kappo” Medved, and Loudmouth Mark Levin have been compromised and do what they’re told. They aren’t autonomous; they’re entertaining personas controlled by conglomerates that made them famous though various mediums.

Obama’s Bogus Birth Certificate Part 3

The investigation into Obama’s birth certificate went nowhere because of threatened FCC repercussions. FCC officials said they would revoke broadcaster licenses, break up conglomerates, and would invoke regulations on broadcasters that would make enactment of the Fairness Doctrine look mild by comparison.

Broadcast officials were intimidated and they issued directives and warnings threatening serious consequences to anyone who would not be a team player and agree to keep mum about the birth certificate.

Tell Levin and Hannity to Back anti-Establishment Senate Candidates

By Jerry A. Kane

If Mark Levin and Sean Hannity weren’t establishment tools, they’d be working tirelessly to promote the anti-establishment senate candidates in the upcoming GOP primaries, but they’re not.

Look, I’m not talking about a casual mention of a particular senate race here and there, or an occasional rant against one of the establishment’s candidates. I’m talking about interviewing these largely unknown candidates and dropping their names with increased frequency as each primary approaches. Name recognition is paramount for these unknown candidates to have a fighting chance against the better-known establishment incumbents and their well-financed campaigns.

If Levin and Hannity had an ounce of integrity and the courage of their professed convictions, they would be repentant for their wholehearted endorsement of Orin Hatch, a card-carrying member of the permanent political class and more RINO (Republican in name only) than Bob Bennett, who lost Utah’s 2010 primary to Mike Lee.

To jog your memory, Hatch was headed for defeat in 2012, but Mark Levin and Sean Hannity intervened to save his bacon. They endorsed Hatch, interviewed and promoted him on their shows as a stalwart conservative; then they relentlessly attacked Dan Liljenquist, Hatch’s challenger, who in truth was an actual conservative tough on fiscal issues, illegal immigration, and the GOP establishment.

Levin was the more ruthless of the two. He mercilessly attacked Liljenquist backer Freedom Works and its head Dick Armey for prompting a radical, open-borders, pro-amnesty position, and viciously smeared Liljenquist even though Hatch had been a supporter of amnesty and had sponsored the open-borders DREAM Act.

Levin endorsed Hatch without reservation knowing Hatch had been in DC since 1976; had promoted SCHIP (Obamacare for Children), TARP, the Law of the Sea Treaty, and Medicare Part D; and had voted to confirm leftists Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Ben Bernanke, Timothy Geithner, Eric Holder, and Cass Sunstein.

“I endorsed Orrin Hatch a year ago and will continue to do so,” proclaimed Levin on Facebook.

Hatch’s voting record called into question whether he would uphold the Constitution and defend liberty and freedom, but Levin was undeterred. He doubled down his support for the big-spending, Beltway-entrenched incumbents’ mascot who routinely crossed the aisle to promote and pass the Democrats’ destructive agenda.

Hatch reflected the antithesis of the spirit behind the Tea Party movement. Following his vote in support of Eric Holder as Attorney General, he said, “I like Barack Obama and I want to help him if I can.” Hatch was actually part of the overall problem. He epitomized everything Levin said he opposed on his radio talk show; yet, Levin gave Hatch his unwavering support.

Levin has a reputation for being a constitutional scholar and a solid Reagan conservative and his endorsement of the six-term senator with a big-government voting record and nearly four decades of costly progressive partnerships carried a lot of clout with the tea party faithful and the conservative grassroots. His endorsement helped Hatch gain credibility and trust among Utah Republicans in one of the nation’s reddest states.

Hatch, of course, went on to win the primary and was reelected. About eight months later during his radio talk show, Mark Levin read the names of the 14 GOP Senators who voted for amnesty; and of course, sticking out like a sore thumb was the name Orin Hatch. Levin made a half-hearted attempt at an apology for backing Hatch, saying, “I could never endorse him again.” The horse is gone, so what’s the point in locking the gate now, Mark?

Primaries are where the fight for the soul of the GOP take place. Primaries are where the GOP’s RINO establishment should be ousted. Primaries are where the grass roots lets the party know that they’re mad as hell and not gonna to take it anymore.

Unfortunately Mark Levin’s and Sean Hannity’s endorsements wield enormous credibility among the tea party faithful and conservative Republicans, but too often they put their shows’ ratings and personal interests ahead of their professed beliefs. The truth is what they say and do adheres more to management, advertising, and FCC guidelines than it does to principles of liberty and freedom. That’s the true nature of the beast, and it’s naive to think otherwise.

Looking to talk radio for heroes and champions is like looking for love in all the wrong places. People who do it are setting themselves up for a major letdown.

But don’t take my word for it; use the available social media and ask the dynamic duo if they’ll go all out to help these anti-establishment senate candidates get the name recognition and raise the money to rid the GOP of its RINOs.

Those with the convictions to take me up on my challenge should prepare for disappointment when the bloom falls off the rose.

Levin was the more ruthless of the two. He mercilessly attacked FreedomWorks and its head Dick Armey for prompting a radical, open-borders, pro-amnesty position, and viciously smeared Liljenquist in spite of the fact that Hatch was an original sponsor of the open-borders DREAM Act.

Levin endorsed Hatch without reservation knowing Hatch had been in DC since 1976; had promoted SCHIP (Obamacare for Children), TARP, the Law of the Sea Treaty, and Medicare Part D; and had voted to confirm leftists Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Ben Bernanke, Timothy Geithner, Eric Holder, and Cass Sunstein.

“I endorsed Orrin Hatch a year ago and will continue to do so,” Levin proclaimed.

Hatch’s voting record called into question his ability and desire to uphold the Constitution and defend liberty and freedom, but Levin was undeterred. He doubled down to endorse and support the mascot for big-spending Beltway entrenched incumbents who routinely crossed the aisle to promote and pass the Democrats’ destructive policies.

Hatch was the antithesis of the Tea Party spirit. Following his vote in support of Eric Holder as Attorney General, he said, “I like Barack Obama and I want to help him if I can.” Hatch proved he was part of the overall problem and epitomized everything Levin said he opposed on his radio talk show; yet, Levin gave Hatch unwavering support.

Levin has a reputation for being a constitutional scholar and a solid Reagan conservative and his endorsement of the six-term senator with a big-government voting record and nearly four decades of costly progressive partnerships carried a lot of clout with the tea party and the conservative grassroots. His endorsement gave Hatch more of the trust of Utah’s Republican primary voters in one of the nation’s reddest states.

Primaries are where the fight for the soul of the GOP takes place. Primaries are where the GOP’s RINO/neocon establishment should be ousted. Primaries are where the grass roots lets the party know that “we’re mad as hell, and we’re not taking it anymore.”

Sean Hannity’s and Mark Levin’s endorsements have enormous credibility, but they put their shows’ ratings and personal interests ahead of their professed beliefs. The truth is what they say and do adheres to management, advertising, and FCC guidelines. That’s the way it is, and it’s naive to think otherwise.

Looking to talk radio for heroes and champions is like looking for love in all the wrong places. People who do it are setting themselves up for a major letdown.

But don’t take my word for it; use the available social media and ask your conservative warriors if they’ll go all out to help these anti-establishment senate candidates get the name recognition and raise the money to rid the GOP of its RINOs.

If you take me up on my challenge be prepared for great disappointment and the bloom to fall off the rose.
