tv Life Liberty Levin FOX News August 14, 2021 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT
dogs last night. the score 11 to 4. you go slider. and that's how fox reports on this saturday, the 14th of august, 2021. i'm jon scott. thanks for joining us this evening. see you again tomorrow. ♪ ♪ hello mark. i'm mark levin. this is life liberty and levin. we have a great show tonight. for the full hour former speaker of the house newt gingrich. before i get to newt, does it trouble you that our government at all levels is now in our bedrooms, in our cars, in our religious institutions, in our
schools? and they always have excuses for all this. it could be health. it could be for the god of the community -- it could be for the good of the community, whatever it is. whatever happened to individual liberty. who even talks about individual liberty or the declaration or inalienable rights? what kind of country are we turning into? we've been warned about soft tyranny. ladies and gentlemen, we're surrounded by soft tyranny, and it is getting increasingly more aggressive. you see the demands when it comes to vaccines. you see bureaucrats shutting down businesses? you see bureaucrats of the cdc telling landlords that they can't collect rent as they go broke? you see a president of the united states defying a supreme court ruling that says those bureaucrats don't have that authority? you see a president of the united states opening our borders wide to individuals, many of whom have the virus, are criminals, are ms 13 and you name it, and he could care less that he's doing this purposely?
you see democrats and republicans in congress getting together on an infrastructure bill, 2700 pages, 1.2 trillion dollars. you have people on television so called republicans promoting it who have no idea what's in it? and all the social manipulation and social engineering that the attacks of these spending bills, that's not a representative republic. that's not a constitutional republic. that's not a federal republic. you know what that is? it is what thomas jefferson called it. that's tyranny by legislature. we have tyranny by legislature. we have tyranny by bureaucracy. we have tyranny by the executive branch. they don't want to know what we think. they don't ask for our input. you can't even get into the capitol building today if you want to. we have a house of representatives with a speaker of the house rules like she's some kind of a fascist, and she has proxy voting, so members don't have to show up? they don't even have to show up. why does she do that? so she has their votes in the back of their pocket.
the house of representatives is elected every two years because it is supposed to be the closest to the people. does it feel like the closest to the people to you? the border's wide open. crime is going through the roof. we have this radical agenda. colleges and universities are out of control. public schools are now brainwashing our children to hate faith, to hate our country, to hate our founding. the corporatists who don't believe in capitalism anymore are turning their corporations into surrogates for big centralized government. we have black lives matter and antifa. i look at these as the militia wing now of the democratic party. what m atalking about? -- what am i talking about? these autocratic regimes, like to talk about autocracy. these autocratic regimes and marxist and fascist regimes, they have their thugs. all last summer their thugs were burning cities, attacking cops, assaulting people, killing
people, and the media supported it and celebrated it. their candidate for president could barely utter words that it was a bad idea. their vice presidential candidate harris was helping support a movement to get these people off. now, this isn't a constitutional republic when this sort of thing is happening. what's happening is we're empowering the democrat party. we're empowering this one force, and this is what they do in autocratic regimes. they have one party systems. look at california. look at new york. look at illinois. look at some of these other states. well, that's going to be america if they get their way. the border's open in order to flip texas, flip florida, and flip arizona. then there could be no competition. this so-called for the people act isn't for the people. it's for the democrat party. if they can nationalize the election process, they will destroy the red states. that's exactly what they want. and that bill is a horrendous unconstitutional disaster. they don't care. why do they want to ebs pand the
supreme court -- why do they want to expand the supreme court? so they can control what the judiciary has to say. every marxist, fascist regime does exactly the same thing. this democrat party is diabolical. and you have to have the courage. you have to have the bravery to explain it, and you have to have the courage and the bravery to explain what's taking place. these are spawned american marxist movements, that hate capitalism, that hate american sovereignty, that hate you as a matter of fact. all you white supremacists out there in the white dominant society. here's my problem, though. do the republicans in the senate have any idea what the hell is going on? in the house i think they do. in the senate, i don't think they have any idea. we have 18 republican senators, including the republican leader mitch mcconnell who are busy cutting bipartisan infrastructure spending deals. what kind of ridiculousness is this? they don't know what's in that bill. other people are starting to
find out what's in the bill, but putting that aside, when you have somebody in the white house, like joe biden, who is defying a supreme court decision, who is violating federal immigration law, when you have a president of the united states who is allowing people into this country by the tens of thousands, of the covid-19 virus, and the delta variant, while he's insisting that law-abiding vaccined american citizens wear masks, you don't start cutting deals with somebody like that who won't fix the border, who is creating a health disaster in our own country. you have a guy in the presidency who wants to destroy our voting system, who is destroying our financial system, and we have 18 republicans in the senate including the republican leader, we have a bipartisan bill here, bipartisan, it is wonderful. with only 500 billion of the 1.2 trillion actually going to roads and so forth? what should the republicans do? they should put their foot on the brake. they should go to the american
people and say this man, this party is completely out of control. they are destroying this country from within. they are dangerous. they're violating the constitution of the united states. they're destroying the finances of the united states. they are attacking the sovereignty of the united states. we have never seen anything like this before. and we are not going to participate in this. we are not going to be bipartisan contributors to the destruction of this country. it is shocking to me. we just went through five years with a democrat party and the press and all the rest, targeted our president, donald trump, who never violated the constitution, who never defied a court order, let alone a supreme court ruling, who believed in american sovereignty, who embraced american capitalism, who protected as best as he could the american people from viruses and so forth. they tried to destroy him. they tried to trash him. he's still under investigation.
we have never seen anything like this. investigating a former president of the united states, again, autocrats do that sort of thing. autocrats do that sort of thing. now, we have this, a disaster. can you point to anything that's working well in this country? have you been to the grocery store lately? food prices are through the roof. have you been to the gas pump lately? gasoline prices are through the roof. interest rates are going up. it is going to kill the housing market. now landlords are not allowed to collect rent. are these people aware of the founding of america, private part rights? they could care less. what are we dealing with here? all these disparate movements, these american marxist movements, the phony climate change movement and green deal movement, a war on capitalism, a degrowth movement that was born in europe in the 1970s. critical race theory, another destructive, horrific racist movement. dressed up as some kind of righteous movement. it is louis farrakhan dressed up
as scholarship pushing the destruction of our society. the only way to fix america is to tear it down, burn it down, and rebuild it. all these other efforts. a transgender movement? i mean, transgenderism is one thing, but a movement? yes. impacting what? the nuclear family. -- attacking what? the nuclear family. the nuclear family is under attack. one of the ten bullet points in the communist manifest. i'm not making this stuff up. it is true. that's what's going on in this country. joe biden busy signing executive orders left and right, enshrining, without your input, without congress's input. one of these radical elements after another, congress. congress doesn't want actually the ability to even pass legislation because they don't have the votes unless these rinos jump in. why do you think aoc and the others why do you think that the bureaucracy institutes stuff, that the president institutes
stuff, that the courts institute stuff, because they are a minority of a minority, but they have power. when you look throughout history at the marxist resolution, it is not the masses rising up demanding that chavez take over the country or castro take over the country, it is a relatively small percentage of the population behind them impoedsing their will. -- imposing their will. what am i talking about here? ladies and gentlemen, we're in the majority. we're an army of tens of millions. we need people in the senate and elsewhere who are going to take these people on, who are going to go on offense, who aren't going to play bipartisanship in the destruction of this country, who understand what is swirling around us, what's swirling around in our classrooms, swirling around in the border, swirling around in our corporate boardrooms and all the rest. this is america marxism. the book is not called marxism. it is call american marxism.
you saw the professor on here last week, an expert on marxism, communism, the cold war and he said it. he said you are right levin, you've hit on something here. what's happened here decade after decade of tenured marxist professors brainwashing our kids, our kids are now in power. you have the media in this country, journalism schools, education schools, same thing, as i have said before, there's not a dime's worth of difference between most of the media in the country and the agenda being pushed by aoc, being pushed by speaker pelosi, and being imposed by joe biden, not a dime's worth of difference. why? because our media have been corrupted like so many of our other institutions. we need to stand on our toes rather than our heels. we need to say what do you mean bipartisanship? bipartisanship? you need to use every tool available to you in the senate, to help stop this. just how the democrats use every tool available to them to promote it, 24/7.
it's like the democrat party is so radicalized now and is on the move 24/7, and the republican party's stuck in the 1960s and the 1970s, with no foggy idea what's going on in this country. and one other thing, before we turn to the great former speaker newt gingrich, the fact is, what this has demonstrated is we have to rely on ourselves. we need to be the ones who show up at shareholder meetings, shareholder meetings at corporations that make demands. we need to be the ones who show up at school board meetings and more than that, file lawsuits, when they violate the equal protection rights of our kids. we need to be the ones who use foia to collect as much data in what's going on in these school systems and teachers unions as possible. we need to use the boycott, divest, and sanction movement, the bds movement against these various institutions. there are tens of millions of us. if we just spent a little bit of time each day or each week, being the paul reveres, being
the activists that we need to be to defend this country and protect this country, we must do it. this is our generation's calling. or we're going to lose this country. i will be right back. for mac. who can come to a stop with barely a bobble. lucia. who announces her intentions even if no one's there. and sgt moore. who leaves room for her room. with usaa safepilot, when you drive safe... ...you can save up to 30% on your auto insurance. get a quote and start saving. usaa. what you're made of, we're made for.

speaker gingrich, i want to break this down piece by piece. let's look at the border. to me there's so many issues there when you look at the border and what this president is not doing and is doing. what is your take on what's taking place on the southern border? >> well, look, i think the first question that we should make a national question is where are they going? i mean, last month we had the equivalent of a city over 200,000 people come into the united states illegally, on the southern border. where did they go? what towns are they in? what states were they sent to? the fact is the biden administration is following a deliberate policy of sending people who may have covid, sending people who may be criminal gangs, and sending them to towns, refuses to tell us where they are going, refuses to tell us how it's being handled, and it's well over a million people over the last year, and it's growing. i mean, every month, it gets
bigger because the word is out not just in latin america, but, for example, ghana is now becoming a major contributor to the stream of people coming into the united states because the word is out. you know, joe biden wants you to come to america illegally, and i think the question people have to ask themselves is, why do the democrats favor illegal immigration to such a degree that if the state of texas moves to block the border, instead of thanking them for protecting america, the biden administration files a lawsuit to stop texas so that we can have more illegal immigration? and my personal belief is this is a deliberate policy on the left, that they want to frankly drown the system with as many people who don't understand the constitution, don't understand the rule of law, are not yet
cultureated into being americans. this is not a racist comment. i believe there are latinos who favor the constitution. african americans who favor the constitution. asian americans who favor the constitution. but joe biden runs over the constitution, has contempt for it. this is exactly what you describe in your book on "america marxism". these are classic anti-[inaudible] laws, why should i obey your laws kind of people? and they are proving it every day from the communist district attorney in san francisco who will not prosecute criminals to what's happening on the border. the border's a crisis, and i think the average -- every american should ask, how many people have been sent to their town or their county or their state because this administration, it's so secretive, it won't tell anybody, where it's sending people, and they are going to be in the course of four years, my
guess is they will have brought in something on the order of 7 or 8 or 9 million people. >> mark: what purpose other than to empower the democrat party? you see in a lot of these regimes, mr. speaker, the party comes before the country because it's allegiance to the party. allegiance to the party is said to be allegiance to the country. you see this in all these autocratic societies. when you look at the war on our voting system to empower the democrat party, when you look at what they are trying to do our constitutional system and destroy separation of powers, which is core to our system, when you look at what's going on on the border, when you look at these multi-trillion dollars spending bills that really have as their purpose empowering their base in their democrat cities and states, is this not really a massive redistribution of wealth to the democrat party and the democrat party base? >> oh, absolutely. if you look at where the money's going to go, and you look at the payoff, for example, i think 200
billion dollars to the teachers unions, who are major supporters of the democratic party, 200 billion dollars to people who are telling you they don't want to show up and teach. you look at what's happening, what you basically have now is union allies, big city machines, you have very big corporations, in many ways, it resembles italian fascism, in that you have an alliance between the biden administration and many of the biggest corporations, so that the biden administration is actually suggested that facebook and twitter and others might do a better job of policing the american people. now, this is a kind of coalition of the bigs. in the 1930s, it was very dangerous. i think you are seeing it come back. it is a combination as you point out, it is a transition point towards marxism, so you have sort of the aoc marxist level,
and biden is considered a moderate because he's just implementing sort of the state fascism in which the government and the big businesses cooperate. i think it is very dangerous. i regard the oligarchs in silicon valley as a great threat to our freedom. none of these people care -- you know, if you are nancy pelosi, you are totally protected all the time. you live in a very fancy place in san francisco. you're above the human -- you are above the crime, you are above all those things, because you're an aristocrat. the two latest polls, governor newsom is losing in california and cuomo in new york, so the two top democratic governors in the country, both may collapse
under bidenism. and i think it tells you the level of turmoil that's beginning to build in the country. >> mark: to underscore your point, notice they are in a rush to institute their agenda. it's 50/50 in the senate, but for the constitution, they wouldn't be in the majority, except for the vice president's vote. in the house, they have a 4/5 vote lead and the phony moderates walk behind pelosi every time she tells them what she wants them to do and they do it, and they have no mandate for any of this, but because of who they are, they don't care whether they have a mandate or not, do they, mr. speaker? when we come back, i want to pursue that with you. the party of the people, they don't give a damn if the people support what they are doing or not. this is what i want to pursue with you. we will be right back.

drought and triple digit temperatures. that includes california's dixie fire which has scorched nearly 850 square miles, an area roughly the size of tokyo. i'm jon scott. now back to "life, liberty, and levin". >> mark: welcome back, america. speaker gingrich, it is amazing to me how what i call these american marxists, oligarchs, aristocrats, they always while they are stealing liberty from the people, they always claim they are doing it in the name of the people, don't they? no matter if it is castro, chavez, if it's pelosi, if it's schumer, if it's biden, doesn't much matter, and they build this massive bureaucracy, so if they win an election, they claim a
mandate. if they lose an election, they claim it is illegitimate and they rule by permanent government. in other words they never lose, do they mr. speaker? >> that's one of the things we have to collide with. the reason they hated trump so deeply is that trump was actually starting to root them out, starting to take on their bureaucracies and weaken them. you are exactly right. when you have a state department or you have a justice department where 97 or 98 percent of their political contributions go to the democrats, you know that when you try to implement a policy, which is not far left, you are going to face foot-dragging and resistance and undermining and leaking and sabotage on a regular basis, and i think whoever wins in 24, if they are a republican, they should enter office with the intent as one of the first parts of business to begin to break up the bureaucracies and make it possible to actually have bureaucrats who obey the public.
but right now you have a layer of news media, universities, bureaucrats, politicians, who literally sit on the country, and they represent a power structure which is opposite of the american people. we have been doing polling with john mclaughlin, and we found 16 issues in which there's an 85% rejection of the left. 85%, and they just don't care. the best example is this issue of whether or not you ought to have a photo id in order to vote. that's overwhelmingly supported by african americans, by latinos, everybody, except the hard left, which understands that they won't be able to cheat and steal, and so they're just trying to run over the whole country, and we will see what happens in this round. but historically these kinds of
anti-people systems ultimately get repudiated in stunning destruction. i actually think by the way that there's a lot to be learned by watching john adams and the federalists, who were the first people with the act to try to legally suppress free speech in america. and they were desperately trying to hold off jefferson and the emerging democratic republican party. the result was in four short years, they were annihilated. and by 1812, they literally disappeared as a party. i think the democrats don't realize yet, they are playing with real fire, particularly in their more radical views like, you know, doctors shouldn't list whether you are a boy or a girl when you are born. now, most americans think that's insane. you know, to be white ought to be inferior, not superior. you have a group in california urging white parents not to send their children to really good schools because that will leave
spaces for minority children. but the level of things they have adopted that are totally opposite to all americans. i mean, you have a huge number of african americans and you have seen this with some of the olympians when winning have been the opposite of what the left hoped for. they've praised america. they've thanked america. they've said how grateful they are to be in america. and some of them come, for example, we have one who is a third generation from among -- her parents rather migrated after we lost the war in vietnam. she's totally committed as an american to what a great country this is. well, that's what's going to happen. the left gets more and more radical. people like aoc are more and more clearly communist and more and more clearly willing to impose on the american people and have no idea how the economy works. i mean who does she think is
going to build houses and rent houses to poor people if the government stops everybody from paying their landlord? i mean that's a signal to everybody, don't put your money into housing for poor people. she has no idea how that works. >> mark: but she wouldn't matter but for the media promoting her, but for the democrat party embracing her. >> right. >> mark: but for the president of the united states and his chief of staff talking to them constantly, making sure that that part of their party is satisfied. but it's becoming more and more the party, not an extreme part of the party. it is becoming more and more the party. i want to come back to you on this which is why in the world would the republicans in the senate be entering into negotiations with a president of the united states, who is violating federal law, who is purposely has the border open with all the horrendous things going on down there, who is
having people come into this country. he knows it -- who have this virus while telling people who have been vaccinated they have to mask up, their children have to mask up and so forth. he is destroying this country, in many respects from within, and the republicans act like it's another day, so they are so excited -- watch this guy cassidy on -- it was the most appalling thing i have ever seen, from louisiana and the others. they are very self-righteous, these 18 republicans about how important this is, and we've shown we're bipartisan. you know, the democrats don't care if they're bipartisan or not. they got reconciliation. they are lined up to go, baby. this is just part of a strategy for them. they play short ball. they play long ball. well, i think our guys are in the left field stance. i don't think they have the foggiest idea what's going on, and they certainly don't have the guts to fight it. i want to ask you about this, does something within the republican party, does something need to happen? i mean, we're facing the most
radicalized democrat party in my lifetime, i would say in the last hundred years, i would say period, actually, and i don't think the republicans are up to this in the senate. i'd be interested in your take. we will be right back. what? it looks like a face. ...hearing about it 24/7 is painful enough... i don't want to catch it. well, you can't catch shingles, but the virus that causes it may already be inside you. does that mean bill might have company? - stop. you know shingles can be prevented. shingles can be whaaaaat? yeah prevented. you can get vaccinated. oh, so... i guess it's just you, me and bill then. i'm making my appointment. bill's all yours... 50 years or older? get vaccinated for shingles today.
>> mark: welcome back, america. speaker gingrich, i argue in my book "american marxism", we need a popular movement. we had a popular movement at the revolutionary war. we had a popular movement at the civil war. we had a popular movement with the tea party movement, the reagan revolution, even the trump movement. we're not going to be able to rely on some great republican statesman or the republican party generally to really take this on and to save us. we're going to have to go into the schools, the corporations, the community. we're going to have to be a more active people because there is power in numbers and we have a lot of numbers.
that said, elections do matter. sometimes less and less, but they do matter. so i wanted to ask you, what is going on with the republican party, particularly in the senate? do they not recognize what's taking place in this country? >> i think there's a big difference. the house republicans largely with only a handful of exceptions understand that this is a fight to the death, that the left really wants to destroy the america we know, and that people like -- i mean, nancy pelosi is basically a dctator right now. as a former speaker of the house, i'm stunned by how much she's violated the rules and how much she ease aggregated -- how much she's aggregated power to one person and how much damage that's doing to the institution. the house is a different place. in the senate, you have this myth of we're all senators, we're all going to talk with each other. and you get a certain number of them who actually december
despite -- despite everything, read the new york times, read the washington post, watch the major networks, what if we could bipartisan, be friends, so i might have to sell out, but it will be so much positive for america to be able to say the word bipartisan. i have been through this several times, in the late 70s with reagan who broke with the traditional party and said no and took on the left. again, we did it when george h. w. bush broke his word and raised taxes. i led the effort to defeat it. and that was a decisive moment in the republican party in the 90s because all of a sudden people in the country said oh, those guys actually keep their word. they actually meant no new taxes. and i think you're back in a similar moment here. people that have forgotten, the reason that trump emerged is that 63% of the republicans were totally angry with their washington leadership based on
polling. in 2015. so if you ran as a washington senator or a washington congressman, people immediately wanted somebody who was different. and so trump was running in an environment. that's why it brought on the tea party. people looked around and said i'm not satisfied with these guys. they are not leading. i think the members in the senate who are buying this totally phony bipartisanship in which, you know, the democrats are going to write this bill. it's going to be a terrible bill. there are going to be things in this bill that no republican should vote for, that there's no defense for. and i think that the republicans who did vote yes should really rethink it. they have a few days ahead of them. they should really rethink it, and people who watch this show ought to call their senators and just say have you lost your mind? have you read the bill? do you realize how bad it is? and people like senator lee and
senator cruz are doing a good job of standing up and saying hey, look at what's actually in the bill. don't tell me about the headline in press conference. look at what the democratic staff have written into this bill, and it will be very abhorrent to most republicans, and i think will become a major issue in primaries in the republican party, and i think that people are going to say just as they did with the panama canal treaty, when a whole generation was wiped out in the senate because they voted with giving away the panama canal, and people just were furious and thought it was -- as american nationalists they really resented doing it. so they took it out on republican senators and democrats. i think this bill is going to be similar. >> mark: it always amazes me the senate republican leadership blames everybody but themselves when they don't win seats they think they should win. they never look in the mirror, these guys.
they just think they are going to glide their way through. it is not going to happen today. there's too much at stake. everything's at stake. people see. it's affecting their homes. it is affecting their cars. it is affecting their gasoline prices. it is affecting their children in the public schools. the idea that we don't have a more offensive minded, aggressive republican party in the senate laying down the principles of spelling out what the other side is doing to our culture, in every respect, is so shockingly ignorant to me. politics aside, when in the hell are you going to stand up for your country? when are you going to stand up and take a stand and say you know what? we're not entering into bipartisan anything. we're not voting for infrastructure. we're bringing this place to a halt until we get some things on the table here. you secure that damn border. we can't have people coming in here willy nilly who are sick. we're not going to contribute to this massive national debt. we're not spending 1.2 trillion dollars, only 40% of which is
actually infrastructure, mr. speaker, and the tax foundation said it is not even 1.2 trillion. it is 2 trillion. then they are coming behind with 3.5 trillion with a massive welfare state expansion. that's not 3.5 trillion, that's 5.5 trillion. you want to contribute to turning this country into the [inaudible] republic? republicans, mr. speaker, they stood up against slavery. they have taken positions that are principaled, that are right. i just don't see it. i do agree with you. i see it in the house. i don't see a lot of it in the senate. we will be right back.
every single day, we're all getting a little bit better. matching your job description. we're better cooks... better neighbors... hi. i've got this until you get back. better parents... and better friends. no! no! that's why comcast works around the clock constantly improving america's largest gig-speed broadband network. and just doubled the capacity here. how do things look on your end? -perfect! because we're building a better network every single day.
and there you have it- woah. wireless on the most reliable network nationwide. wow. -big deal! ...we get unlimited for just 30 bucks. sweet, i get that too and mine has 5g included. that's cool, but ours save us serious clam-aroonies. relax people, my wireless is crushing it. that's because you all have xfinity mobile with your internet. it's wireless so good, it keeps one upping itself.
>> mark: welcome back. speaker newt gingrich, the american corporation, you know, when i was young, they were pretty patriotic. republicans supported them because they tended to support capitalism and competition. not perfectly. don't get me wrong. what do you make of what's happened to american corporations today or what i call these corporatists? >> part of it is they hire all the students who graduate from the ivy league schools, so all of their senior staff represent anti-american woke values. they're more comfortable with the chinese communist party than they are with the republican
party. they're more comfortable with xi jinping than they would ever be with donald trump. and so, you know, when you see something like the head of nike announce that nike is a chinese company, that's really staggering -- i mean, imagine in the 30s that the head of general motors had said that gm is a german company. people would have been shocked and astounded. and yet, part of it is just the power of money. the chinese have been very intelligent about taking care of certain companies and punishing other companies. look at the speed with which the national basketball association collapsed because so much of their revenue now comes from china, that when they had somebody who -- the only thing the general manager in houston did was he favored in a tweet the freedom-loving people of hong kong. and for that, the chinese communist dictatorship said we will close down the nba in china
unless you get him under control, and he had to apologize for favoring the people of hong kong who love freedom. now there's something disgusting about that, and you know, when i think back to the free americans, who randomly got together as militia at lexington and at concord, who took on the british regular army and defeated it, and began an eight-year war for freedom, and i think about their values and the values of washington, and the values of the people of valley forge, and i look at some of these corporate leaders, i'm truly disgusted by their betrayal of america and their betrayal of freedom, and i regard what the head of nike said as a total betrayal of the united states. i mean, he might as well -- as far as i'm concerned, he ought to get chinese citizenship and be openly who he operationally is. you know, a little genocide
among the uighurs, that's not a big problem. destroying tibetan's culture, that's not as important as our bottom line. crushing the people of hong kong, well, you know, we had really great sales last month in beijing. threatening to invade taiwan, well, you know, you have to understand all of these complicated issues. this stuff is nonsense. we need to have an american debate and decide that we want american companies that are patriotic, and if you're determined to be pro chinese, you need to think seriously about where you're based and about what kind of citizenship you want. >> mark: you know, newt here at home, these corporations have thrown in the administration, the whole phony jim crow argument against these legislatures who are trying to take back the election system, post-virus, they are even liberalizing their systems still, and these corporations throw in with the democrat
party, they throw in the most radical elements of the democrat party, my view is the republicans ought to let them live or die on their own. stop protecting them. stop defending them. start boycotting them. start showing up to shareholder meetings. the difference between us and them is we will support capitalism and freedom, whereas they want give mes. they want handouts and protection from competition. what's your thought? >> we ought to be the party of small business. we ought to encourage the millions of entrepreneurs who want to go out and start something, hire people, and compete. we should not be the party of these handful of really big businesses that basically survive by having lobbyists rather than engineers. i mean, you look at the defense contractors, it is a real problem because more and more they have cost overruns, they are inefficient, technologically obsolete, but they have great lobbyists.
that's a problem for american survival. >> mark: newt gingrich, it is always a pleasure. it is always great to hear from our wise man. we want to thank you for what you have done throughout your career. i want to thank you for what you are doing now. thank you. >> mark: take care of yourself. >> all right. >> mark: we will be right back. priceline will partner

>> mark: welcome back, america. you know, information, knowledge, and education are everything. that's what a free people need. that's what freedom's all about, so you can process in your cranium what's going on around you, to make decisions, have free will, mobility, create things, produce things, live a very useful and fullsome life. but there's a war on all that in our college and universities. the academic year is about to begin. many of your children who are going to some university or college will be facing tenured professors and an entire culture that rejects all of that.
they are going to fight free speech and academic freedom, and they are going to push propaganda of the worse sorts. there is no academic freedom anymore, on our college campuses. in so many respects, these are indoctrination mills. that's why biden and company want free education at the college level or want to wipe out student loans so they can process more and more of your children through their system. well, you're not compelled to force your kids to study and read only what these colleges and universities and professors tell them to read and to learn. that's part of the problem. many of you have called my radio show and say here we have thanksgiving, and our kid comes back from college, we don't recognize him or her anymore. 700,000 or more of you have already purchased "american marxism". i want to strongly encourage you to make sure your children who are going into college or some university or even high school are armed with your textbook,
are armed with the antidote to all of what they're going to be taught and all of the efforts at brainwashing and indoctrination. you don't have to rely on the government or these universities and colleges to tell your kids what to learn. get them the antidote. i will see you next time on "life, liberty, and levin".
