    Saturday at the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference, nationally syndicated conservative talk show host Mark Levin gave an rousing speech hitting on the topics of Obama’s executive overreach, immigration and the threat of ISIS.

    Levin opened by quoting the early American patriot, Thomas Paine saying, “These are the times that try men’s souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.”

    Speaking directly to the president, Levin said, “Let me say this to you Mr Obama, you may have a pen and you may have a phone, no doubt an Obama phone, but we have the constitution of the United States. And we, not you, we own that constitution, we own this country, and you Mr Obama do not have any legitimate authority to fundamentally transform what does not belong to you.”

    On immigration, he added, “We are not a nation of immigrants we are a nation of citizens. A nation immigrants who have become citizens. We are a nation of citizens and I’m sick and tired of the American citizen being demeaned and treated as a second class citizens while anyone who crosses the border is treated as the most virtuous human being on the face of the earth.”

    Levin also criticized Jeb Bush, saying the only dynasty he liked was “Duck Dynasty,” and ended his speech saying, “I end with two words, kill ISIS.”

    And these are not our immigrants of yesteryear who use and abuse our resources. In Md very little if any ID needed. I blame our Md democrat legislators like viva la babs McCulski, Cardin, Guttierez, Leudtke, and all the rest of them that continually without fail cater to illegals with our jobs and resources. Now they have a legit drivers license which of course is all you need to vote. Voting ballots are also in Spanish yet a criteria for being a citizen is the ability to read write and speak English. Yes they are voting. Most of our democrat legislators would not be in office if it weren't for voter fraud and illegals voting.

    Levin tells CPAC that GOP has ‘no guts’: ‘It’s time for a new Republican Party’

    By Kellan Howell - The Washington Times - Saturday, February 28, 2015

    Conservative radio host Mark Levin criticized Congressional Republicans for having "no principles, no strategy and no guts" on immigration.

    Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday, Mr. Levin said "It's time for a new Republican Party," The Hill reported. "No more excuses. No more whining. No more lying to get you elected. No more crony deals with the U.S. Chamber of crony capitalism," he added.

    Mr. Levin said that while Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is "one of the most despicable, dumbest men to ever be leader in the Senate," he is "running circles around the Republicans," referring to ongoing debate in Congress over funding for the Department of Homeland Security, which would include funding for President Obama's executive actions on immigration.

    "We are not a nation of immigrants. We are a nation of citizens," Mr. Levin said, The Hill reported. "I am sick and tired of the American citizen being demeaned and treated as a second-class citizen while anybody who crosses the border is treated as the most virtuous human being on the face of the earth."

    Mr. Levin also criticized potential 2016 GOP candidates like Jeb Bush for being too inclusive on immigration policy.

    He said some GOP presidential candidates have referred "to us as essentially lazy and racist and themselves rejecting the belief of American exceptionalism, insisting that the nation owes its current and future greatness, if not existence, to uninterrupted massive waves of low-skilled and unskilled aliens from the third world."

    "This has never been the American experience. Immigration is to be managed, limited, gradual to allow for assimilation and Americanization," Mr. Levin said, The Hill reported. "You see, Mr. Bush, we love our country, too."

    On immigration, he added, “We are not a nation of immigrants we are a nation of citizens. A nation immigrants who have become citizens.
    No we are nation of citizens, period. We are not immigrants who came here and became citizens. Most of US are natural born citizens, born after our country was formed, born to US citizens, usually 2 US citizens. We are the posterity mentioned here:

    We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
    Yes, we have some citizens who were first immigrants and become naturalized citizens. But that does not make our nation a nation of them, it makes US a nation of what we are before they arrive as immigrants, a nation of citizens, and only that. Would someone claim that we are a nation of slaves because some imported slaves, and eventually slaves were freed and became citizens? No, we are not a nation of slaves, any more than we are a nation of immigrants, we are a nation of citizens who fought a civil war to end slavery, the bloodiest war ever fought by Americans, with more casualties than WWII, the only country in world history to fight a civil war to end slavery. No, we are not a nation of immigrants on any level under any definition.

    It's time to pass a 10 year moratorium on all new immigration and grind this nonsense to a halt, so we can fix this travesty and reset the system so what's going on now in this country never ever happens again.

    My fellow Americans who are members of the Democratic Party, what is wrong with you? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? When I was growing up you couldn't tell the difference between a Republican and a Democrat on most issues, other than Democrats liked the income tax, Republicans hated it, and Democrats liked to spend more government money, whereas Republicans were more conservative. Beyond that, you couldn't tell the difference. Now, Democrats are like this foreign glob rolling down the beaches and highways devouring everything we cherish from jobs and wages, education and health care, to fiscal responsibility. And you're ruining our country with this bizarre fascination with losers from other countries, who for whatever reason couldn't find their way in their own nation, who come here and steal what our people have built, ravage that, and then I'm sure when we're the Pig Sty of the Planet, they'll move on and ravage another if there are any left.

    Illegal aliens are not good people. They are criminals who have no respect for our most important assets, our laws, our borders, our sovereignty, or our government. They are selfish people, who only think of themselves, who only care about themselves, it's all about them, no one else. These sob stories you read in the paper are nothing compared to what low-income and no-income Americans endure and suffer every day often for generations, a situation that at one time had great hope for a solution, and progress was being made to improve their lot, but now with all this massive immigration, illegal and legal, that hope has been dashed, the means and opportunities from jobs, better wages and educations, all snuffed out of their grasp. These immigration crimes are crimes by our government against these citizens of the United States. These are not only immigration crimes against US immigration law, but labor and civil rights crimes of the highest order by our government against US labor and US civil rights laws, targeting citizens of the United States.

    Here's another idea for States, and that is to use their State Civil Rights Laws to stop the federal government from importing labor that competes for jobs with minority citizens. If the US government for example hands out a work permit or work authorization to an immigrant, legal or illegal, including green cards and visas and any other type of federal document that on its face would enable them to remain in the state and apply for work, or if the federal government fails to remove illegal aliens without documents who are participating in the work force illegally, then States have a clear case of civil rights violations by the US government against their state residents who are citizens of the United States. Clear cut. The evidence to support such a case is overwhelming at this point. So if all 31 states with Republican Governors would file such a class action suit on behalf of their unemployed and underemployed citizens who can't find work, who can't get enough hours, who can't get a raise, who have been fired and replaced with an illegal alien with no papers or an immigrant with papers, this would stop this nonsense not only in your states but across the country. Also included in the suit should be the remaining citizens who still have jobs but are required to pay state and federal income and other taxes to pay the cost of the poverty programs paying not only for the citizens who are suffering the economic consequences of massive immigration but the illegal aliens and immigrants who are using these programs as well to supplement their illegal wages secured through violations of federal labor and civil rights laws by the US government.

    In fact, you should amend the Texas lawsuit to include these grievances and charges.

    We are paying these people to colonize us, and we don't even need them. Workforce participation is below the normal level, wages are stagnant, and even our STEM graduates are having difficulty finding jobs in their fields.

    At the moment there is no rational reason for permitting any immigration at all.

    "no principles, no strategy, no guts"

    There are no six swords in the English language that more realistically describes the present day republican party. That is a shame, the country needs a conservative like Mr. Levin in congress, but if he has ever been a republican few would vote for him. But more citizens such as him willing to speak the truth are drastically needed! Wonder if he has military experience, a whole bunch of them needed, too.

    Absolutely correct. At this time, there is absolutely no rationale or reason for any immigration at all.

    Start pressing for a 10 Year Moratorium on New Immigration. We need it now. We must have it now. There is no way we can fix the plumbing with the water on just as no one can fix an engine while it's running. Likewise there is no way to fix this immigration problem with immigrants pouring in by the tens of thousands every day.

    We must demand a 10 Year Moratorium on New Immigration and do it now. This is all immigration including all green cards and visas, (except student, tourist and business visitor visas, so long as there is no work visa associated with it), all guest worker permits, temporary worker permits, work authorizations, refugees, asylum-seekers and all illegal aliens permits, and any other document, record or affidavit that would entitle any new immigrant regardless of type or purpose or illegal alien from anywhere, border crossers and expired visas included, to be admitted to the United States.

    Do it, Republicans in Congress, do it. The numbers back you up and the American People support it. So do it, and do it quick. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi think they've pulled a fast one on the American People? No, we're not only ready to shut down DHS, we're ready to shut them down and send them back to the worm holes they crawled out from, because we want to raise the ante.

    Lets do it, America. Lets raise the ante, hold our line and stand our ground until we get exactly what we need, want and must have to save our nation from the ravages of illegal immigration and excess immigration.

    Bumper stickers: "no principles, no strategy, no guts"
    A conservative opinion of the GOP

    A few hundred to a few thousand of those in every city in the country should get someone's attention!

    Can we do it? What do others think about this? Do we need d Mr. Levin's permission?
