Mark Levin opens his comments in response to a question from Sean Hannity as to the response or lack thereof from Obama to the ISIS threat, saying that Obama is the current commander-in-chief and that we only have one.
Levin points out that â€œThese cockroaches organized, funded themselves, built a forceful military, started conquering geographic areas all around the world under his nose. He ignored it, he did nothing about it. He didnâ€™t talk to the American people about it; as a matter of fact he downplayed it. This is one of the worst military, national security screw ups in modern American history and heâ€™s still screwing up.
Levin asks, â€œHas he rallied the American people, has he spoken to Congress, has he asked for a declaration of war or at least a joint resolution to fund an aggressive offensive attack against these cockroaches? No he hasnâ€™t.â€
He then moves on to another aspect of this Imperial presidency, saying, â€œIf this â€˜presidentâ€™ thinks, that by changing the word treaty to accord or treaty to deal that he can violate article two section two clause two of the United States Constitution, which involves the essential rights of the unionâ€¦then this is number 1200 example of a lawless, imperial president.â€
He says there has never been a debate that the Senate has the right, under the Constitution, granted by the people, to ratify treaties.
Hannity says there are three issues on the table now where Obama may choose to dictate rather than honor the Constitution and go to Congress, air strikes in Syria, immigration and dictatorial amnesty, and his climate change dictates. He asks, â€œHow should republicans deal with this?â€
Levin says he doesnâ€™t know how the Republicans under their current impotent, cowardly leadership should deal with it. He says, â€œBut I do want to say this to the American people. We are living in an increasingly post-Constitutional period. This â€˜presidentâ€™ is destroying the United States Congress, with the help of his party, with the help of Harry Reid in the Senate.â€ He says, â€œWe do not have these ethical leading Democrats anymore who are standing up to this â€˜president.â€™â€
Levin says, â€œLet me be very clear about this, He is attacking American sovereignty. With this UN deal that they are talking about, with the open borders and the executive fiat that he is talking about, these are all efforts to destroy American sovereignty by Barack Obama.
Hannity asks Levin about the largely unused power of the purse to which Levin responds â€œItâ€™s a power if they use it. If they donâ€™t use it itâ€™s just words on a piece of parchment, and the fact of the matter is, within weeks of becoming Speaker of the House, John Boehner surrendered it.
Levin closes saying, â€œIf theyâ€™re not going to act like Congress, then Congress is going to be destroyed. And let me be clear, Mr. Boehner, and Mr. McConnell and the Republicans, he is destroying Congress. And the Senate has been eviscerated, and none of you guys have the guts to stand up and tell the American people over and over and over again, who he is and what heâ€™s doing.â€
