Party Over Principles? What is Happening with Levin and Gingrich?

With due respect to a couple guys I normally like their reaction is bulls&$t. Mark Levin and Newt Gingrich are out bashing Matt Gaetz and the other seven Republicans that had the courage to what no one else would do by standing on principle. These guys are beating up Gaetz claiming he’s unprincipled because he showed loyalty to the country over the party and it is inexcusable. The GOP has sold Trump and the rest of our nation down the toilet since 2016 – it’s time to clean house and this was a good start.

Let me start by sharing my position – we cannot sacrifice principles for a party that, even when it held both parties and had a Republican president in 2016, could not repeal ObamaCare (without which we would not have had the COVID debacle but that’s another story). We have CBDCs coming, a world on the brink of war, a wide open border with military age men from all our enemy nations pouring through, a weaponized justice system holding patriots in prison with nothing approaching a fair trial, rampant election fraud, the destruction of health freedom, a collapsing economy, Donald Trump (republicans presidential front runner btw) being attacked by corrupt prosecutors, and Speaker Kevin McCarthy did NOTHING to negotiate ANY sort of legitimate deal on ANY of these issues before increasing the debt ceiling or passing the latest spending bill… And speaking of the spending bill – where were Newt and Levin in screaming at McCarthy for partnering with Democrats on that?

At the end of the day the lesser of two evils is still evil and I’m not willing to blindly support a party that sells out on my principles because they are the lesser of two evils. As I am seeing the Republican Party ramp up attacks on Gaetz and anyone else that steps out of line, let me say for the record that if the GOP continues its attacks on Trump, Gaetz and other principled America First Conservatives I will put everything I have into facilitating a national discussion on a third party. There is no question that the best approach for our country is to retake the GOP but if the sellouts running that party will not support a presidential candidate that is winning by 40%+, continue to throw elections by failing to fund America first candidates (like McConnell and McCarthy did in 2022), and want to continue negotiating our country into a globalist nightmare I’m done with them.

I appreciate Levin and Gingrich but want to know how much of this outrage is based on principle and how much is based on pay? Levin gets a LOT of money from Fox News – the same news network that was purchased by BlackRock and then fired Tucker Carlson. In fact, according to https://coopwb.in/info/mark-levin-fox-news-salary/# Levin is paid $10 million per year. It is pretty well documented (and Tucker’s situation demonstrated) that getting paid by Fox means backing their agenda and to hell with principles.

As for Gingrich – he is owned by the party. Going back a number of years there were numerous reports of the GOP “helping him out” and that does not happen unless the party has some guarantee of control (https://publicintegrity.org/politics/newt-scores-loot-from-gop/). Gingrich, up until recently, was also paid heftily by Fox and others and his outrage is more than a little suspect (here’s more on him though I do not love the source: https://www.caclubindia.com/wealth/newt-gingrich-net-worth/).

My intent is not to knock Levin nor Gingrich but they both seem to be being “compelled” to be more angry about people falling out of line than they are about America’s decline. As these guys continue to run their mouths and write op-eds that are so willingly republished by leftist outlets, I simply am curious as to where their outrage was when McCarthy signed the debt ceiling deal without defunding the 87,000 new IRS agents or defunding the politicized DOJ attacks on Trump.

For me there is no more compromise. I’d work with any Democrat on the planet to get people like McCarthy or McConnell out of their seats. These guys threw the last election to keep America First candidates out and now we are supposed to show them loyalty? I’m just done with this crap! Thank you for your courage Matt Gaetz and you seven other republicans that choose to stand for principle over party – I hope more supposed America first leaders decide to do the same.

  1. Mr. Renz,
    Thank you for the article. We have a two-party system in the US of A: The Democrat/Republican Uniparty vs the Conservatives (MEGA). Period. Have never heard this Levin and could not even tell you what he looks like. Sounds like a paid loudmouth shill for the New World Order Marxist crowd. I gave up on national network television news in 1978. I was awakened but not woke by the lies. Had to depend on conservative radio back in the day.

    Newt should just be quiet and go away. A no class fool with a closet full of skeletons pimping for the swamp.

    Matt Gaetz, Ken Buck, Andy Biggs, Tim Burchett, Eli Crane, Bob Good, Nancy Mace and Matt Rosendale are the Heroic Eight and brave to take a stand for the truth and We the People. Now’s the time to make the Uniparty the Wee People!

    Thank you again Mr. Renz for the article and Mr. Hoft for publishing it.

  2. Levin is a blowhard. that doesn’t mean i dont agree with him on alot of stuff but he doesn’t relate to the average patriot. he has an elitist attitude and he’s a snob. “back benchers” lol … Also he referred to Zelensky as “the Churchill of our time”. so that should tell ya what you need to know. i stopped listening at about that time. when Rush Limbaugh was snobby, it was in jest. Levin actually lives and breathes it. he tries to pass himself off as a Limbugh’ish voice, but he’s a just an elitist A’hole most of the time.

  3. Joe, thankyou for publishing this piece as it cuts through the crap. This is the start to changing people’s minds about who we elect to congress. And we the people are responsible for the government we have. Our Congress and conservative media is full of good talkers but few doers. Remember the Gaetz’s and DeSantis’s who put their money where their mouth is and actually do what they say. Remember them when primary season rolls around. Remember the people that DO, not just SAY. By this standard our government would look and act very differently.

  4. Levin is uniparty, it took me a while to figure that out too. But when he softballed the interview with Bill Barr, & we found out what a traitor he was later, it was clear Levin is a sellout. The fact that he’s a Jew, I’m sure it’s just a coincidence, but those seem to be happening quite a bit with the leaders in the media, and other key figures supporting this Covid Tyranny. As Kanye and other famous figures, who have been censored, pointed out. I had to mention he was an assistant, Attorney General, if anyone could be smart enough to strategize a good lawsuit or two you would think it would be him. All he does is rant & rave & sell his books. What an assh$&$. Thank God for people that live in Midwest farm towns that got the balls to do something, to stand up to these totalitarians, I have been small game hunting in Fremont.

    • At this point anyone who isn’t aware that jews are scum is either a RINO, idiot, or someone who is willfully ignorant.

      • You horribly undercut any argument in support of Renz by your rank anti-Jewish bias. BTW, I am NOT a RINO, not an idiot and not willfully ignorant—nor am I Jewish.

        Yes, many Jews, too many actually, are liberal and conservative Jews like Dennis Prager and Michael Medved have noted this for years, but this should not lead to some kind of across the board anti-Semitic rant. Wise up.

        • “Conservative” jews are all neocon zionist RINO trash. And I already mentioned why all Jews are bad. they are not White, they are not Christian, they are left-wing/RINO and if you read your Bible (which you didn’t because you are a RINO, heretic, idiot and a fake Christian.) you would know that Jews are ANTI-Christ. And are CHRIST-killers (this is straight from the Bible 1 John 2:22 and 1 Thessalonians 2:14-15.)

          You say I “undercut my argument”.
          No, because my “argument” is the truth and biblical.
          You think I should not post the truth because it “upsets someone”? Get lost.

          Wise up. Oh and read your Bible some time.

  5. What we are witnessing is the final stages of the much needed civil war between the America first patriots (representing 80-90% of the Republican base) and the never-Trump establishment wing of the Republican Party (aka. the Swamp). Like the rest of the world, both Levin and Gingrich know with absolute certainty that the last two elections were fraudulent – where the White House and control of the Senate were stolen outright from the American people – and yet they remain silent on the two greatest political scandals in modern US history, all due their love of FNC money and their disdain for President Trump.

  7. Thank you for posting this article. I am an avid listener of Levin’s and when I heard him coming out against the group of patriots I was confused. I actually thought I may have been thinking wrong. However, you are right, and Levin is wrong. I know Mark is a smart guy. I wonder if deep down inside he agrees with us and just cannot say it. But when I listen to him, he is so impassioned about it that I actually think he’s right about Gaetz and company. That scares me.
    I sure hope you are wrong about the money part. I am sure Levin would say he can never be bought out, but you make some compelling arguments about the money. My conclusion is you are correct, and Levin is wrong, and I wish he would take another look at it and go on air and admit he was wrong. We would forgive him as we are the forgiving type.

    • I agree with your confusion. I couldn’t believe, having listened to Levin a lot, that he would come out like he did against “The 8”. Two of them are from my state, AZ. They are both honest, excellent people. I listened to Eli Crane talk to a local Tucson talk radio host, Garret Lewis, after the vote. He is a rational, clear thinker, unable to be bought, ready to “go home” if voted out for his vote. I was so impressed I made a donation to him right after his interview. Levin and Newt are wrong in this and hope these and other representatives will stand up for the USA, not the Republican party.

  8. Regarding Mr. Newt, he is a creature of the 90s, of the Bush/Clinton eras. I don’t think he fully realizes the treacherous waters we are treading. Our country is burning down. This isn’t the go along to get along, or the both parties want the same end, just having different ideas how to get there, politics of the past. The Democrats and the Swamp (McCarthy included) are purposely destroying the country we grew up in and love. We need measures like this to save what is left. Party loyalty and political decorum be damned.

  9. Both men support the Uniparty. What they do not understand is that the only viable party that is going to be left standing in the end is the MAGA party. #MAGA

  10. My question is Why would all democrats vote to remove McCarthy if he is so bad for MAGA and woorks well with them? They know another more conservative Republican will come next. They don’t have the votes to have a dem speaker.

  11. The Eight drew the short straws to be the scripted martyrs, that’s all. There can be no salvation for the USSA unless Congress immediately cuts spending by 50%, and of course, that will never happen. The best these fake Conservatives will pull off will be, maybe, one or two reams of paper from the money printer. So, The Gaetz Coup is all just theater to hide our slide into oblivion. Don’t worry, though: WW3 will save us just like the first two WWs did. Yay War!

    • A 10% cut in spending would be a great start. If an attitude adjustment by the republicans can be implemented, the impending collapse might yet be averted. I keep thinking about McCarthy’s attitude – he was so sure he would ride this revolt out because he knew how fearful of the party leadership and corrupt the members were. They were disciplined around legislation – just their self interest and personal ambitions. It was the democrat Nazi like party discipline, missing from the republicans, that McCarthy underestimated and which removed him. He assumed he bought them enough favors that just enough of them would defect in his favor. None did! They lived up to the guiding principle: WHAT”S MINE IS MINE, AND WHAT”S YOURS IS NEGOTIABLE.

  12. Even before this, I’ve found Levin to be an overbearing, loudmouthed propagandist. His flagship call for a ‘convention of the states’ seemed very suspect which was confirmed by CA governor Newsom’s call for the same exact thing. It would be the height of idiocy to allow these people, who cannot be trusted, a shot at altering out formational document i.e. the constitution. Gaetz was totally correct to go after McCarthy for reverting back to his duplicitous ways as speaker. The country is being destroyed and he was kicking to same can down the road. The fact is that the GOP is out of touch with the people it is elected to serve. The party might learn the value of discipline and solidarity, as opposed to selfish, self serving self interest, which, as displayed by the democrats, is what got McCarthy booted.

  13. Agree with all of this piece, other than Fox news being bought by Blackrock.
    I also despise Blackrock, but they are a 5.34% owner of Fox. Behind Vanguard @ 6.85%.
    Just a correction.
    Keep up the great work.

  14. Why are you waiting to seriously discuss a third party for real conservatives, sir? Do you believe doing the same thing over and over (always “waiting” for this, or that) and expecting different results is sane…especially in the face of all evidence to the contrary? If not now, when? We watched this party sabotage the people’s president for four years…we’ve watched them constantly yellow-belly up to Democrats for decades. McCain should have been the final wake-up call…yet here we are. Still waiting….pretending the GOP isn’t just Dems in Drag…seriously. Willful blindness!! Any Conservative who has ANY loyalty to the Republican Party is a RINO or Pollyanna crazy. Every Conservative should re-register as an Independent. New party or not, we must 3D the GOP NOW!…Defund, Dismember, Destroy! They’re only in our way.

  15. Kudos to Tom Renz for reducing to writing what a multitude of Republicans think.
    To describe one Party is to describe both. The only difference between Democrats and Republicans, their desire for power and personal profit, is the letter “D” or “R” following their name.
